Monthly Market Stats: October

RE Stats Square oct“The beginning of fall typically ushers in two things – the Rockies being officially eliminated from post-season play, and the number of homes sold in the Denver real estate market tapering off after a blistering hot summer. Having said that, the Denver Metro Association of REALTORS® (DMAR),’The Voice of Real Estate® in Denver Metro,’ believes this fall could still shape up to be the hottest home market in the last decade. Why? Even though September produced a seasonal slowdown, indicators point to above-normal numbers of active listings. Also, many homebuyers are anxious to get locked into a low-interest home mortgage loan before the Feds likely propose an interest rate increase at the end of the year.” – Anthony Rael, Chairman of the DMAR Market Trends Committee

Madison Monthly Market Stats: April 2016

 From Denver Metro Association of Realtors®:

For the entire residential market last month, active listings, new listings, homes under contract, and homes sold showed double-digit month-over-month (MOM) gains. The total sales volume is up 11.93 percent year to date to $3.87 billion.

“Spring has sprung and the Denver-area is bursting with activity,” said Anthony Rael, Chairman of the DMAR Market Trends Committee and Denver real estate agent. “I’m quite certain homebuyers and my fellow REALTORS® are growing tired of hearing about our lack of housing inventory, so it’s with great pleasure that I share that this month’s market trends report is filled with an abundance of positive news.”    

Madison Year-End Report 2015

Madison & Company president, Justin Knoll, recaps 2015 for our End of Year Report

2015 will go down as one of the best ever for Denver Metro area sellers who reaped the rewards of being in the nation’s hottest market, realizing an average of 14% increase in value from just one year ago. On the flip side, buyers felt the pressure of shrinking inventory and rising prices, while the silver lining of historically low interest rates gave buyers a fighting chance to find their new home. 

With over 55,500 homes selling for over $20.16 billion in closed sales volume, 2015 was a record year which can be attributed to Denver’s economic and population growth over the past few years. In that time, 65,872 new listings came on the market, up 6% year over year, while Days on Market were at 31, down 18%.

To finish the year, the average home price was $363,143, up 12%, and the median home price was $314,000, up 14% from this time last year. This includes detached and attached single family homes. Towards the end of the year, we experienced a bit more balance in some segments of the market as inventory snuck up in some areas and prices began to flatten out after the summer months. However, these were modest changes that could be attributed to seasonal slowing and typical trends.

justin knollThe local job market recovery continues as we have added over 200,000 jobs since 2008, which leads us to a healthy economic outlook into 2016. Looking forward, high demand will likely continue as more than 100,000 people moved to Colorado over the past 12 months, making it the second fastest population gain in the Nation.  Adding to a feverish market are the 83% of renters that say they want to own a home according to a recent National Association of REALTORS® survey.

Overall, we anticipate the next 12 months to bring more buyer demand, similar inventory shortages, growing affordability concerns and possible interest rate hikes, all of which will make 2016 a year to remember.
