Greetings once again, my Friends! I hope you’re enjoying the pleasant September weather here in Colorado. As we transition from summer to the early days of autumn, there’s still an array of exciting activities to partake in both within the city and its surrounding areas. I’ve taken care to select a couple of noteworthy events for you to relish this month.
Now, let’s turn our attention to the housing market. In September, we’ve observed a noteworthy surge of 8.87% in active homes, signifying a substantial increase in available properties. However, home sales have experienced a slight dip of 2.02%, which is a common seasonal trend during this time of year. It’s a pivotal period as we move towards cooler months, and with interest rates holding steady, we anticipate a steady increase in market activity.
It’s worth noting that properties in prime condition and those priced competitively continue to attract attention. In fact, some are going under contract swiftly, with multiple offers on the table. Keep an eye on the market, especially if you’re considering a move.
Looking forward to a fantastic September filled with events, cooler weather, and perhaps a few surprises along the way! Do let me know if there’s anything specific you’d like to discuss or inquire about.
