Hello again, Friends! I hope everyone has been enjoying the beautiful (and sometimes unusual) weather here in Colorado. There is plenty to do in and out of the city as Spring rolls into Summer – if you’re not sure what events are in town, I always include a few in each of these emails. I’ve moved the two featured events this month to the top to highlight them.
As for the housing market, inventory rose by 2.3%, which is to be expected, but even with the increase in seasonal inventory the Denver metro is in need of more inventory. April saw 7.91% LESS homes sold than March, though that trend is unlikely to continue as we head into the busiest time of the year.
