Supply vs. Demand

Supply vs. Demand

Good Morning Everyone,

Today’s post is all about an education.  An education of what’s going on around the Denver Residential Housing Market.

When doing a mid-year recap, I always like to look back to see forward.  Follow along with my notes below from these two weekly MLS reports.

March 5, 2018

New Listing (1329)
Back On Market (193)
Price Increase (188)
Price Decrease (534)  The Ratio of Price Decrease to Under Contract is 32%.
Under Contract (1653)
Withdrawn (119)
Leased (41)
Sold (1635)  The ratio of New Listings to Sold Listings is 81%.
Expired (326)

July 30, 2018

New Listing (1694)
Back On Market (312)
Price Increase (120)
Price Decrease (1410)  The ratio of Price Decrease to Under Contract is 78%.
Under Contract (1795)
Withdrawn (211)
Leased (44)
Sold (1583)  The ratio of New Listings to Sold Listings over 100%.
Expired (214)

OK, what does all this mean?  We are clearly witnessing a market swing.  As so often happens this time of year, buyers are tiring, sellers are weakening and the brokers that make the market are pressing to get the transaction moving.  The only tool left in their basket is a price reduction.

With all this being said, if you are in the market, contemplating be in the market or just dipping your toes to create a plan for the future, we are here for you every step of the way…tc

@MyTownCryer #MondayMarketUpdate #MakingTheTurn

Good Morning Everyone!

It's a good week!Are you are “looking at the world through a windshield”…?

That’s right, we have made the turn.  Passing the midway mark for 2018 was pretty much uneventful.  That being said, we think there are  a number of ideas we need to share with you today.

  • As you can see, Price Decreases are becoming routine.  Sellers want to get it done by the end of the year.  Compelling pricing has become critical.
  • Under Contracts remain strong.
  • New listings are about normal.
  • For closings it was a good week!

New Listing (1765)  I would expect this to be higher!
Back On Market (316)
Price Increase (144)
Price Decrease (1438)  Sellers want to get it done before year’s end.  Huge Number!!
Under Contract (1740)
Withdrawn (171)
Leased (43)
Sold (1510)  This is a good week.  Annualized, this is a huge number!
Expired (245)

OK, What else?

That’s it for now, we will try to make a big first half update as we close out the month with all the cumulative data coming.  With that being said…

Let’s hope you’re the windshield all week…tc

#MondayMarketUpdate @MyTownCryer #Fog

Good Morning Everyone!

Fog 2018

Sometimes the Fog Blocks Our View…

As you know, we publish this weekly update to keep our followers across all media informed.  It becomes more difficult to anticipate what the trend will be for the rest of the year about now.  Here’s what we know.  We still have below normal supply, and we almost identical levels of new product coming on the market as last year.  We have higher rates than last year, and we have higher energy costs than last year.

Here’s my prediction, seller’s will become frustrated more often by not going under contract right away like last year.  This will lead to more price reductions than in the past.  Buyers will become more demanding on sellers for condition, appeal and quality items.  No longer will they “Take it ‘as is'”.  Sellers will be forced to make repairs and/or credit buyers for these items.  Rates are going to swing within a narrow range.  Seldom if ever do we see big rate moves during an election year.

Speaking of elections, don’t expect September and October to “add big” to the numbers as we move into the fall season.  This election will be stirred up in the media.  Many will become captivated.

So, that’s why we may be in a fog, just like this morning, for the rest of the year.  What do you think is going to happen, and how should we adjust to the market?

The “Dog Daze of Summer” are upon us.  Note our comments below.

Denver MLS Report/Last 7 Days

New Listing (1925)
This is typical of the season.
Back On Market (312)
Price Increase (156)
Price Decrease (1378)
This a huge number!
Under Contract (1717)
Coming off a holiday week; normal.
Withdrawn (215)
Leased (48)
Sold (1467)
A good week, but not great.
Expired (234)

@Kentwood Broker Tour Fun!
Sometimes, we just have to have a bunch of fun in this business. Last Wednesday during our weekly broker tour we had our new listing at 641 Ruby Trust Way on Tour. Besides the fact that this home is beautiful, we wanted to spread everyone out and cover all the grounds.

This home has INCREDIBLE landscaping. In order to feature the yard, we decided to employ some fun and games. Dee’s ideas turned into full coverage of the entire property.

We sponsored an Amazon Gift Card Scavenger Hunt. Participation was strong, but based on the winners; speed, youth and eyesight may be key characteristics necessary to win at this fast paced game.

The first winner was Clark Jackson from way down into the gardens on the lower level. Although Clark was the first one to see the second gift card, she could not get there before Phelps Blair picked it up from the edge of the putting green. Finally, from the top of the water falls, Jeff Lopez risked life and limb to capture the elusive third gift card. Everyone was such a good sport, and everyone continued on tour with a bit of energy and fun associated with a good old fashion scavenger hunt.

In addition, we have a lot going on right now. We just returned from a lovely Baby Shower for our Grand Daughter (We know the name…). We’ve been Grand Puppy Sitting. And, we anxiously await the newest members of the Cryer Clan.

We have some fabulous new listings. This market remains "Red Hot", particularly under $500K, and in certain neighborhoods, there is virtually no inventory. Keep us in mind as you move through the Residential Jungle, and we will take the time to show you where the next "vine is hanging".

Safe Travels Everyone!

Tom and Dee are the ultimate real estate professionals. Their step by step process in selling our house was amazing. Even more amazing is the way they educate their clients and present options to them based on the scenarios at hand. Perhaps their best asset is that they truly care about their client’s best interest. This was evident during the sale if our home. With our experience with them, it is without reservation or hesitation that I recommend them for all your real estate needs. You will not regret it.

@MyTownCryer #MondayMarketUpdate #4th #Crazy Week

641 Ruby Trust Way Castle Rock-print-042-67-Exterior Rear-2700x1800-300dpiWhen a National Holiday divides a week like it did last week, it is impossible to predict what might happen in our market, but it had a HUGE impact.  Look at those numbers!

Denver MLS Weekly Report

New Listing (1416) Certainly a slow week here!
Back On Market (308) We had one of these, buyers are crazy right now!
Price Increase (225)
Price Decrease (1042) As we move later in the year, this number will grow.
Under Contract (1566) Not a bad week, but nothing like the last two weeks.
Withdrawn (163)
Leased (39)
Sold (1386) This is a particularly slow week based on recent weeks.
Expired (257)

7150 E Berry Ave Englewood CO-print-005-45-Exterior Rear-2700x1800-300dpiMoving forward, we are anecdotally observing some build up of inventory in our perimeter markets particularly in our higher priced markets.  Close in under $500K still remains strong when well presented and well located.  If I was going to predict the future, I would predict that by year’s end, we will be experiencing a well defined “bifurcated market”.  This means price range and location will be the defining characteristics as to how “hot” said market is.

As always though, if you have any questions, concerns or just need an interested party to help you out, please, give us a call…tc

Good Morning Denver Home Buyers and Home Sellers!

img_0447A few weeks ago, I mentioned we were just about to breakthrough the 2,000/week threshold.  Well, this week we did it!  We closed 2,037 transactions last week.  Title Co’s were busy!  That’s a great number, and it is completely in line with historical seasonal activity.  We close more homes in June every year than we do in December.

Weekly Denver MLS Statistics Below

New Listing (1790) This has become a routine number.  No surprises here.
Back On Market (319)
Price Increase (140)
Price Decrease (1304)
Under Contract (1799) Once again, no surprises here.
Withdrawn (194)
Leased (61)
Sold (2037) WOW!  The fruits of our labors have manifested themselves in this number.  Good Work Realtors Everywhere!
Expired (396)

As we do every (almost) Monday, we like to provide a little update and motivation.  In spite of what goes on in Washington and the rest of the world, Denver continues to live in this magical world of Supply and Demand.  Right now, below $500K, Demand exceeds Supply.  As we move up the price scale, we see some build up of inventory, but the numbers, on an historical basis, are still very strong.  No problems to report today.

Dee and I have a number of “Off Market Listings” right now.  They will be coming on the market over the next 60 days.  We are working on pricing, staging and market prep.  If you have a special need, we may have it coming to market soon.  Call us, and maybe the seller will let you in early.

It's a good week!In the meantime, have a great week, enjoy the merits of this special holiday.  Let’s all fly a flag for our great nation!

Weekly MLS Update 6-25-2018 #DenverMarketWatch #MotivationMonday

Good Morning Everyone!  Please fasten your safety belts and raise your tray tables….

cropped-img_0841.jpgAs we roll into the last week of the first half, we’ve seen all kinds of volatility from Wall Street and other world markets.  We’ve seen a roller coaster in the interest rates, but my bet is we’ve seen most of the highs for the year already.  As we march into the summer malaise, we are still seeing homes with desirable location/site characteristics and certain floor plans still being chased by market participants.  We had multiple offers over the weekend on a list price of $1,750,000.

I’m betting this type of demand will continue through out the rest of 2018.

Weekly MLS Update

New Listing (1859)  A very strong number, but not as good as last week.
Back On Market (296)
Price Increase (143)
Price Decrease (1303)  I said we will be watching this more closely.  Are list prices too high?  This is a big number!
Under Contract (1792)  Once again, a very strong number but not as good as last week.
Withdrawn (146)
Leased (40)
Sold (1546)  We continue to post strong closing numbers!  On an annual basis, this is over 6,000 per month!
Expired (235)

Finally, for this week’s update.  While we still see buyers chasing “special” listings, on the flip side of this coin, we continue to observe properties where location, style, floor plan or condition are very off-putting in this market.  Buyers have become very critical of condition and “appeal”.  If a property does not have the correct layering of desirable characteristics, it has to be “priced right”!

If you need experienced expert help on Pricing It Right, just pick up the phone and call.  We will call you back! Safe Travels…tc
