SE Region Metro Denver Real Estate Market Report

Southeast Region Metro Denver Real Estate Market Report ~ September 2014

The SE Metro Denver Region has the most inventory of all five regions and the highest average price.  The “average days on market” to sell is the longest but only by a difference of 9 days!  (Denver’s days on market is 26 while SE Metro is 35!)  Out of the 18 zip codes in this region only three are not in the “seller’s market/extreme seller’s market” category.  Those three are just slightly lagging behind in the “Moderate to High Appreciation” category.

It is not surprising this area has more inventory than others when considering the average price of homes is at $394,863, about $10,300 over the next closest area.

In September 55% of the listings taken were sold. That is a very strong market for this desirable area.

SESuburbanDenverRealEstate-May2014

SE Metro Denver stats are green with the exception of one area, Sedalia!  This area is considered a little remote from the metro area and homes just aren’t selling as fast!  With an average price at $426,900 this area has mostly custom homes.  Buyers in this price range have many options and those include building to their custom needs.  High end buyers might find the best deals in the Metro area in Sedalia, so be sure to take a look!

Average days on market for the SE Metro area is just at 33 days.  This means most homes are selling within a day or two taking the rest of the month for the buyer’s loans to be approved!  Sweet news for home sellers who can enjoy knowing their home is sold without having to be showing it for weeks on end.

We Really Are Connected

Sunset-Smokey Night in Highlands Ranch As the fires burn in California we in Colorado are feeling the effects.  It took a couple days to figure out what was going on when the sun didn’t shine on our Rocky Mountains. Then it dawned, we weren’t walking around in some dull, lifeless cloud or the misty puffiness of fog, but nasty, dirty old smoke!

We need rain.  Actually I’d be happy to give our rain to California right now.  I can’t imagine how miserable it must be in LA right now.

Maybe, just maybe we can do a virtual rain dance and wet down the grassy hills of Southern California.

I’m game, how about you?
