  Market Update | JULY 2021
Hello friends!

While inventory dropped 20% between April to May, we’ve seen a 50% increase in active inventory between May to June, up to 3,122 at months end. The number of closed homes has also risen about 10% month over month. Both of these statistics are typical of the Summer months, where we see a larger number of homes on the market at a slightly higher price point. This increase in inventory and price usually lasts until about August or September, where we see inventory begin to decline again. 2020 and 2021 have been unusual years, however, so it’s unclear how typical of a pattern we will see this Summer season. Regardless, there will be a lot of homes hitting the market in the next few weeks, so if you are still looking for a home and need an experienced REALTOR® on your side, I would be happy to help!
Market Insights by DMAR:

While the Denver market may be cooling slightly, this is a normal seasonality shift brought on a few weeks early by rising temps, buyer burn out, and travel regulations lifting.

Colorado gained about 50,000 people between July 1, 2019, and July 1, 2020. That includes both migration and births. The state has added about 760,000 people since 2010, the eighth-highest in the country.
Hiring was 3.2 percent higher in May 2021 compared to April 2021 and was 71.6 percent higher in May 2021 compared to May 2020.
While home prices are unlikely to drop anytime soon, today’s low mortgage rates are a buyer’s secret weapon to secure affordable housing.
Average active listings for June is 16,098 (1985-2020). Record-high June was 2006 with 31,900 listings and the record-low was set this year with 3,122 listings.
