Market Facts:

Fall is here and we are seeing an increased seasonal slowdown in the Denver Metro home market. Showings are slowing down, open houses are back, mortgage rates have risen, Sellers are reducing prices, Buyers are escalating demands during the inspection process, and many Buyers now want turn key properties so they can move in and live to their expectations. Overall, the home market is good year over year. As a Seller or Buyer, be prepared.

Real estate is local. While the above is a representation of the Denver market as a whole, please contact a RE/MAX Professional to better understand your specific real estate market.



Advice to Sellers:

With an increased seasonal slowdown in the Denver home market, Sellers need to be aware what should be done so that Buyers will keep the Seller’s home within their desire to buy. Keep in mind that curb appeal entices the Buyers to see more and is known as the first impression. Next, remember to declutter and stage rooms for a purpose. Pay attention to details and light up the home by cleaning and adding LED lightbulbs. Always remember that as a Seller you need to leave a great lasting impression on all Buyers when they are shown your home.

Buyer’s priority upgrades include: kitchen, bathroom, flooring, master suite, HVAC, closet renovation, and insulation.

Seller preparation includes a good pricing comparison analysis, instructions on staging, what are the top improvements, introduction to a net sheet to understand the bottom line, and a conversation on how the market functions. As such, the homeowner looking to sell a home needs a professional who is a local expert, is hyper local market knowledgeable, and can assist in the Professional plan to sell one’s home. Now is the time to reach out to a Professional.


Advice to Buyers:

There is every indication that Buyers will see a different fall home market than in the prior years. What this means is that the Denver home market will continue to show seasonal signs of leveling off and Buyers will see a slowdown of activity. Be prepared to act quickly, create your home buying plan, and stick to it.

Home pricing will remain constant with little price appreciation. Even though mortgage interest rates remain low today, there is every indication that mortgage interest rates will continue to increase in the near future. What this means is that with an increase, Buyers will be able to borrow less than currently.

Know what you want in a home, where you want to live, and what price range you can afford. Complete the pre-qualification process so you know the price range that you qualify for when you are purchasing a home. Be prepared, manage your expectations, and be open to looking at the entire Denver market. Reach out to a Professional today about your best options and opportunities to participate and succeed in the purchase of your “Dream” home.
