Massive Equity Gains

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

The average sales price of a single-family home in the Denver Metro real estate market hit $624,048 last week. That is up $116,000 from just 18 weeks ago.

What should homeowners do with that equity, if anything at all? Some will say sell and capitalize, some will say pull the equity out. The answer is always the same, IT DEPENDS. PM me or comment below to discuss further!

Denver Real Estate: THE GAP WIDENS

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

Fall season typically marks a slowing of the real estate market. We see a slight decline in home values and reduction in market activity every year. EXCEPT THIS YEAR. While an unusually high 1,534 homes hit the market last week, 1,631 homes went under contract, further widening the supply and demand gap.

Breaking Records, Yet Again

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

Another week of records! 1,658 homes under contract last week is 45% higher than the last 3-year average. The average weekly sales price of all property types has also risen 22.5% in the last 14 weeks, from $476,861 in week 19, now at $584,035. PM me if you want to know more about your specific area.

We Were Wrong

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

We thought prices might increase by 6% over the last 6 week period. The Average Weekly Sales Price has SKYROCKETED from a low of $483,563 to an all time high of $575,025, two weeks ago. That’s an 18.9% increase in 10 weeks. The number of homes being listed for sale has remained at, or only slightly above the seasonal weekly average, creating a serious supply issue.

Signs of a Denver Real Estate Slowdown?

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

Denver is arguably the hottest real estate market in the country! Given certain factors and interest rates anticipated to remain low, we expect continued appreciation through the end of 2020 with hopes for a modest slowdown.

Red Hot Real Estate

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

Once again, with incredibly low inventory and interest rates as attractive as ever, home owners in the Denver real estate market are seeing the benefits of incredibly strong buyer activity through short term home value appreciation. 

Sizzling Start to Summer

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

The average weekly sales price in Denver was up over $33,000 last week alone, hitting an all time high of $520,083! The Denver real estate market is as hot as it has ever been!

In the Heart of a Huge Rebound

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

Last week new listings were 24.2% higher than the average from the same week over the last 3 years. Properties that went under contract increased 50.2% over the previous three years. Still a seller’s market!

Is the market back?

Is the Market Back?

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

Be patient in arriving at conclusions about the direction of the Denver real estate market. What remains to be seen is whether Denver slows in appreciation with continued national job loss, election year, economic questions, forbearance and societal disruption. Or, is Denver the tip of the spear, leading the local and national economies out of a period of hibernation?

The Rebound and Moving to Bi-Weekly

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

Uncertainty about the virus and economy will be with us for a while. More than ever, it is critical to analyze market trends carefully so we can inform clients about the moves that will most likely preserve and build wealth through owning Colorado real estate, which is my ultimate area of expertise.

Market Trends Up

Buyer / Seller Activity Sees Substantial Increase

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

We anticipated a surge of consumer activity in the Denver Metro real estate market as the public health order ban on in-person showings expired at midnight on Sunday, April 26th. Buyers and sellers were not disappointed as more homes hit the market and showing activity for a Monday and Tuesday was the highest seen yet this year.

Buyers Go Virtual, Sellers Remain Cautious

Matt Hudson, CEO CHR WEEKLY, Market Trends

Governor Polis announced this week that the Colorado shelter-in-place order would not be extended beyond Sunday, April 26, while calling for an ongoing commitment to social distancing. For real estate, the Governor specifically stated in-person showings may resume starting Monday, April 27.  Since this announcement, the real estate industry has been anticipating a surge of buyers and sellers re-engaging in the market.
