Market Facts:

The number of active listings has decreased, the number of homes sold has decreased, the home price appreciation is slowing down, buyer and seller demand is changing, and mortgage interest rates are increasing. As a Buyer or Seller, know what is happening in the home market, understand your market, and remember to focus on your market.

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:

The Metro Denver Seller’s holiday home market is here and Sellers should know what is happening in the market. Active listings are changing. Buyer demand continues. Price appreciation levels are dropping. Interest rates are increasing. Homes are now taking longer to sell. Buyers always will determine what your home is worth. As a Seller, it is time to focus on getting off the fence, knowing what is happening in the home market, what are the home market statistics, and what is your current home value. Be realistic in your outlook and stay focused on the home sale.

The Metro Denver holiday home market is seeing a decrease in showings, fewer multiple offers, and buyers who are cognizant of the home market changes. Manage your expectations, be flexible, and accept the offer that works best for you the Seller.

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:

Sellers are pulling back because of the holidays. As a Buyer, know that the homes available for sale will decrease. As a Buyer, you will probably see that the number of Buyers will continue. Sellers will continue to focus on the sale of their home; but, now in a different time frame. Sellers know that the market is changing and as a Seller, they will have to consider the changes taking place in the Metro Denver Home Market. As a Buyer, make the offer that works for you and is the offer that you can complete to close the transaction. As a Buyer, be aware that the mortgage interest rates will increase one more time this year. As a Buyer, if you do not buy now, in the future you will have less opportunity. As a Buyer, be prepared to act quickly.

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.
