@MyTownCryer #MondayMarketUpdate #ThisIsReal #DenverMarketWatch

Good Monday Morning Denver!

Supply, Rates, Elections…  Oh My!

Let’s take a close look at the Denver Residential Market.  I think it is important for “cooler heads” to prevail.  The sky is not falling, but the market is changing.  After many years of Denver’s unbridled growth, limited new construction and artificially low rates, we’ve been observing the maturation of this market.

We have more supply than we did in 2017.  We are experiencing more price reductions than we did in 2017, and we are seeing an increase in Day on Market than we did in 2017.

With all this being said, last week’s MLS numbers still look pretty darn good.

New Listing (1436)
Back On Market (283)
Price Increase (117)
Price Decrease (1704)  Sellers looking to get it done before year’s end!
Under Contract (1498)  This is a very strong week.  Buyers are busy!
Withdrawn (246)
Leased (40)
Sold (1096)
Expired (255)

What we are seeing anecdotally continues to be true.  Well Presented, Well Located, and Well Priced listings are still selling at a rapid pace.  Sellers unwilling or unable to address any of these three hurdles are suffering the effects of increased supply, higher rates and the election season.

We can help!  Give us a call, and we’ll be there…tc

Supply vs. Demand

Supply vs. Demand

Good Monday Morning to You All!

Please follow along below.  This is the MLS update for the Denver Metro Area for the last 7 days:

New Listing (1600)  Another typical week on this side.
Back On Market (313)
Price Increase (131)
Price Decreases (1903)  Wow, this number is BIG!  Sellers adapting to the market quickly!  They want it “done” by year’s end!
Under Contract (1523) Typical of the last 6-8 weeks.  Still strong!
Withdrawn (259)
Leased (38)
Sold (1301) This is a little bit lower than expected.
Expired (558)

So, I would I characterize this market?

First, buyers are still very active and well priced, located and presented listings are still going under contract very quickly.

Second, listings with “issues”, Location, Physical Limitations, Condition, Appeal Factors, Dated, and basically not meeting the market’s expectations are being critically reviewed by buyers, and as a result, are experiencing extended marketing times and subsequent price reductions.

Third, we have to remember, “The market is not always kind”.  What was in high demand last month, this yesterday’s news today.

So, in closing this week, the #MondayMarketUpdate paints a picture of a busy market.  Buyers are our there.  They are intently and strategically looking.  Long story short, we better get it right the first time, or buyers will walking away.

In this meantime, if you have plans to buy, sell, move, buy a 2nd home, have family needing help, we can assist all over the world with the largest network anywhere.  Please let us help.  303-773-3399  TheCryerTeam@Kentwood.com

Market Snapshot
Market Movers
Denver ranks No. 6 in the country for appreciating home values, according to a national survey by Realtor.com. While homes are expensive, on average they have been returning 11% profit.

VF Corp., the parent of North Face and other outdoor retailers, plans to bring 800 high-paying jobs to the Denver area. The metro area checked off enough boxes to land this economic plum, which will be the largest publicly traded company in Colorado.

If you are selling your home and want to make it more attractive to millennials, suggestions range from showcasing technology to making your home more environmentally friendly.

We wanted to thank you for all of your help and support throughout the home purchase process (Including risking life & limb for us). We are so grateful for everything you did for us and we loved working with the two of you. You really made a challenging situation much more enjoyable. You will have to come by soon to see the house! Thanks again!

@MyTownCryer #MondayMarketUpdate #DenverMarketWatch #Moab Utah #WeAreDenverRealEstate

Convention Center BearGood Monday Morning To You All!  Let’s take a look in the window…

WOW!  Look at this week’s MLS Stats.  Those Price Decreases are as high as I have witnessed.  But, with that being said, look at the number of Contracts and Solds.

New Listing (1640) This should bring some buyers to the party!
Back On Market (336)
Price Increase (119)
Price Decrease (1671)  More Price Reductions; this is HUGE!
Under Contract (1536)  This is a good week!
Withdrawn (212)
Leased (34)
Sold (1405)  This is a good week!
Expired (375)

It is clear from this perspective, the Price Decreases have put some properties under contract.  It is also clear from the numbers of closings and under contracts, we have a VERY healthy market moving into fall.  Buyers are still very present!  It’s a good life…

We took a little break last week.  Thanks for the pass!  Many of you may be wondering what happened to last week’s report.  Well, I was in Moab, UT.  Elvis sang a song back in the ’70s.  “Well I’ve never been to heaven, but I’ve been to Oklahoma…”  I’ve corrupted his song to a degree; “Well I’ve never been to heaven, but I’ve been to Moab, Utah…”

If you’ve been to Utah, you know what I’m writing about.  If you haven’t, I will not spoil it for you.  I’ll just end with this image:


This picture is worth a thousand words, and it reports on millions of years.  We will not be here for millions of years, but we are here for you now.  If you have any real estate questions, please give us a shout, and “we will be there for you, every step of the way”…tc

@MyTownCryer #MMU #DenverMarketWatch 9/10/18

It's a good week!Customers ask us all the time, “What’s the best time of year to put a house on the market?”  There is no easy answer to this question, but here’s what we know.  First, statistically, a listing going active in the early spring tends to get closer to list price in a shorter period of time.  With that being said, we sell houses 12 months a year.  There are more listings available in the spring, but there tends to be more buyers too.  As we close out a year, we tend to “run out” of “fresh” inventory, and as a result, listings tend to languish longer because they are not fresh.

So the answer to the question is simple, pick up the phone, give us a call, and let’s discuss YOUR goals.  Your property is unique to you and the market, don’t let generalities guide your decisions, let’s look for answers that make sense for you!

DENVER MLS for the Week of 9/10/18

New Listing (1653) Inventory is turning toward buyers.
Back On Market (306)
Price Increase (142)
Price Decrease (1428) WOW, This is a big number!
Under Contract (1463) No surprises here!
Withdrawn (167)
Leased (42)
Sold (1236) Pretty slow week comparatively!
Expired (262)

As you can see above, it was a week with little excitement.  One of those 1,653 was ours, one of those 1,236 was ours and one of those 1,463 was ours.  We are constantly “in the market”.  Don’t hesitate to contact us.  It’s a lovely day in the neighborhood!
