  Market Update | August 2022
For the fifth month in a row active inventory in the Denver Metro area has risen. Pair that with a 3.33% average close price reduction last month and we are showing more signs of a potential buyer’s market on the horizon. Prices are still up 11% year-over-year, but this is promising news for those looking to find their home here in Denver. The market is normalizing. If you have any specific questions about what that might mean for you feel free to call or email me directly and I’ll answer any questions you may have!
