Denver Real Estate - ListingsPriceRange-July2009Looking at the spread of listings on the market in the Denver metro area is an interesting study.

26% of homes on the market are in the $300,000 to $500,000 range.

As the price goes lower, so do the choices of inventory.  This a tough news for the first time home buyers who are trying to take advantage of the $8000 tax credit.

This part of the market is experiencing a very strong influx of buyers, with most homes (if they are in good condition) receiving multiple offers.

It's so hard to explain to a first time buyer that the price they are looking at is really the "starting price" in a bidding war.
