  • Move-in ready homes priced correctly are selling notably faster and attracting multiple offers, while homes that are not turnkey are struggling to find buyers.
  • The Denver Metro area ranks as the hottest housing market in the country for a second year in a row, according to a recent analysis from U.S. News & World Report. The report notes that the Denver Metro area “retains a mix of strengths including low unemployment, few mortgage delinquencies, low rental vacancy rates for investors and a positive ratio of building permits to job growth.”
  • Nearly one in four renters who have lived in their home for a year or more seriously considered buying when looking for a home to rent, with 76 percent citing affordability for purchasing a home as the main inhibitor.
  • At May’s Fed meeting, Fed Chair Powell refrained from expressing the level of concern about inflation that recent data warrants. While he acknowledged it would take longer, he did indicate that the next move is a cut, not a hike.
  • The market’s implied probability of no rate hikes in 2024 has surged to 20 percent, up from zero only one month ago.
