Denver Market Watch with 2020 Vision 08/25/2020

A new week, but the same old story. Not enough New Listings, but very strong Pending activity and another week of very strong Closed numbers; Denver is resisting all the economic pitfalls of both coasts. “Fly-Over” Country is winning!

New Listing (1227) Not enough!
Coming Soon (190)
Back On Market (306)
Price Increase (385)
Price Decrease (985)
Pending (2071) Very strong demand!!!
Withdrawn (199)
Leased (111)
Closed (1808) A very strong number here!
Expired (235)

Let’s talk antidotally this week. We are observing the awakening of corporate and agency relocation again. We are logging calls from “Lifestyle” movers. We are seeing younger generations reaching out to buy their first home; triggered by interest rates and family support. This market is broad based in all price ranges, well supported by its diversity of age and economic strength and its move up market is well funded by years of positive appreciation. Denver is that “enigma, surrounded by a conundrum wrapped in a riddle”. Long story short, there is no bubble in sight.

The successes we have logged this year all share a cooperative partner seeking a well executed plan, a defined timeline and the desire for change. We can assist you with the same kind of professional service as your trusted advisor. Let’s discuss your plan of action today!

Herculean Housing

Denver is seeing new construction starts catching up with market demand. Rates are making those big bathrooms, walk-in closets and three car garages very affordable!

Homebuilder sentiment is at its highest level since 1998, starts are up 23.4% Y-o-Y, all-important single-family starts are up 7.4% Y-o-Y, and overall starts are up 4.7% YTD! At the current rate of 1.496 million, starts are nearing their best level in 14 years! Topping it off, existing sales are at their best level since 2006 and are down just 5% YTD! If only the rest of the economy…

Thank You Elliot!

Slifer Smith & Frampton
COVID-19 has been an interesting ride here in the mountains. We experienced the fear of the unknown and learned quickly how to adjust to be there for our clients and each other in a new way. While things were uncertain at times, we stayed optimistic that our beautiful mountain communities and lifestyle will always be desired. The promise of pent-up demand came true. Sales volume in July, for example, showed a 76% increase compared to July of last year – truly incredible!

Denver Market Watch with 2020 Vision 08/18/2020

It’s that time again…

If you are like me, you’ve heard this line in some fashion every 4 years. “This election is the most important election of your lifetime.” For me, because it has been put out there so many times, it probably shouldn’t but it does pass me by. I will write this today with all sincerity, having followed Denver’s Residential Real Estate Market my entire adult life, now more than ever before, it is the best time to be a Seller, and it is clearly one of the best times to be a Buyer.

With that being said, let’s look at Denver’s MLS Data for the last 7 days. Can I say now, “More of the same”?

New Listing (1237) Once again, there are just not enough new listings coming on.
Coming Soon (185)
Back On Market (289)
Price Increase (385)
Price Decrease (950)
Pending (1938) Another great week. Buyers are BUSY!
Withdrawn (186)
Leased (96)
Closed (1751) This is a very good week, not a record, but a good solid week of closings.
Expired (240)

So, as school starts in some fashion, and we maintain, what’s around the corner?

Here’s what’s going to happen. The next 79 days are going to be a great time to stay away from media. It will only serve to raise shackles. Grill outside, go for walks, go to the mountains where there is no cell service, get a hobby, but don’t turn on the TV. Next, although I”m told, this is the most important election of my lifetime, so was the last one, and one before that, and that. I am going to predict, rates will remain low, sellers will have the edge in the Denver market through year’s end and buyers will have to be “Front Row “A” Students” to get a contract accepted. As for 2021, I’m not going out that far, sorry. Maybe next week!

Owning a piece of America is a feeling you can’t get from anything else. Being able to walk in your front door and say, “I’m home”, is simply an incredible feeling. The grass needs to be mowed, the gutters need cleaning and the garage is a mess, but you are home! It may be great to own a few shares of #Amazon or #Tesla these days, but in the long run, the feeling of #homeownership is seldom duplicated by anything else.

So, let’s talk about your plans, your goals, your dreams, and let us be your trusted adviser in the homeownership business. From our “concierge” list of services, to our attentive natures, our professional approach to the process leaving no loose ends, you will not be disappointed with this Realtor choice.

In the meantime, get outside and enjoy Colorful Colorado…tc Dee and Tom Cryer 303-638-3202
