December's Housing Inventory Report - Denver CO
Denver's housing 'inventory' declined again last month, but not dramatically. The upper-price ranges for single-family homes showed the most dramatic swing, but since the bulk of the housing stock resides in lower-priced homes, the actual decline wasn't that great.
In the condo and multi-family market inventory is rising. Earlier this year the lowest price ranges were hot as a pistol, but the market has cooled and those inventories appear to be recovering.
One unexpected surprise was last month's surge in sales for more expensive condos, lofts, and townhomes over $600,000. All but one price bracket dropped by a large percentage, which is great news for high-end condo sellers who've had a hard year with the oversupply in their market.
It'll be pretty interesting to see if inventory levels move dramatically upward in January. If I were to make a bet, a large number of homes and condos will probably return to the market after many sellers return from holiday mode.
Stay tuned for next month's market inventory report.
