  Thank You! | Denver Zoo Event
A big thank you to everyone who showed up for my Denver Zoo appreciation event last Sunday! It was great to see so many faces that I haven’t seen in a while and I had a wonderful time catching up with all of you. My family and I hope you had a terrific time in the zoo – the weather was perfect for it. We hope to see you all at my event next year, as well! I will keep you informed as to when that may be right here. Thank you again and have a Happy Halloween!

  Market Update | OCTOBER 2021
Active inventory jumped 10% in September, and with more homes on the market, buyers have more options available to them. Average days on the market also increased to 13 days, signifying that buyers also have a little more time to make their decisions. While promising, Denver’s housing market is still incredibly competitive and buyer’s should remain vigilant and aggressive. Although the number of closed homes was down 12% last month, a significant number of homes went under contract as well. As seasons change, the market will continue to cool slightly and allow more buyers to enter the market – but it’s not time to relax just yet.
Market Insights by DMAR:

According to Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Association of Realtors®, the real estate market is “moving away from that extreme frenzy.”
Realtor.com’s chief economist Danielle Hale says, “Anytime the market starts to cool, you’ve got people on the sidelines waiting for their chance to get in. That keeps both home sales and home prices from declining too much.”
July marked the fourth consecutive month in which the growth rate of home prices set a record, according to the latest S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller National Home Price Index Report. The index showed a 19.7 percent annual gain for the year ending in July 2021, up from 18.7 percent a month prior. This represents the highest annual rate of price growth since the index began in 1987 and the fourteenth consecutive month of accelerating prices.
Average active listings for September is 15,988 (1985-2020).
Seasonally, we should see a .80 percent decrease in active listings from August to September. This year’s increase of 10.86 percent represents the highest month-over-month increase on record.
