Market Update| June 2022
Last month we saw active inventory shoot up 13.98%, a welcome sight for many weary buyers. Due to increasing mortgage rates, the Denver Metro Area saw an average and median close price reduction, if only slightly. Unfortunately, it’s still a very tough market for buyers – not only in terms of competition, but in the actual cost of housing here in Colorado. According to NAR’s Chief Economist Lawrence Yun, purchasing a home now is 55% more expensive than it was a year ago.
Market Insights by DMAR:
• With interest rates going up, the velocity of bidding wars is slowing down on many homes in the Denver metro market. • The “suburbs” appear to be cooling off where we see single-family homes in the $600,000 to $700,000 price range. Showings are noticeably decreased and open houses are on the rise. • People are staying in their homes longer post-2008. Housing tenure ran at five to seven years from 1985-2007 and now is 11-13 years from 2008-2022. The Baby Boomers are not selling their homes en masse, and we have more investors providing shelter for renters than before. • Any slowdown caused by higher mortgage rates will make the market a little easier for patient buyers. The market could be in for a shift this year as it copes with higher mortgage rates. • The average active listings for May are 15,199 (1985-2021). • Record-high May was 2006 with 30,457 listings and the record-low was set last year with 2,075 listings.
