But first…

Check out what local Denver Experts are saying about the status of Denver’s housing market.

“With children being delayed going back to school, I believe the summer buying period could be extended. Also, mortgage rates on a fixed 30 year are under 3% still. This gives buyers more buying power. I believe as we advance, the market will stay strong.”

“We aren’t quite back to business as usual regarding the number of properties sold. This is because of the continued lack of inventory. If you need to sell your house fast, now would be a great time to do so and get a great price.”

“2020 proves to be an interesting year. The consensus in 2019 was we would undergo a relative cooling of Denver’s housing market. Most experts believed we would see house prices remain flat. However, July 2020 just saw year on year growth at almost 10%. This is fantastic.”

The average price of a home decreased by 0.1% when compared to April 2019. However, the median home price actually increased by 2.7% to $457,000. New listings were down 37.0%. The number of homes that were sold was also down at -22.7%. Inventory of active listings is also down by 20.0%

The coronavirus would appear to be putting added stress on inventory and market numbers across the board. According to Jennifer, an agent of 16 years in Denver, “Sellers are choosing not to list at the moment, so there is nothing for buyers to buy. Therefore, it makes sense that the number of listings and the total number of properties sold are down”. She is hoping for a rebound as fears about the coronavirus, restrictions, and possibly a vaccine is found. 

Rick, an agent-based in Cherry Creek, an exclusive area of the Denver Market, stated, “The longer the shutdown, the bigger the impact. It is a little wait and sees. My main advice to people right now is, despite the coronavirus, if you want to sell, you still can. It just takes a little more care and planning.”

BONUS COMMENTARY on the Current Status of the Denver Housing Market

Shaun, a team member at Watson Buys and www.watsonbuys.com, is the person providing the bonus commentary today. Here it is…

The team at Watson buys is extremely excited to see Denver house prices remain strong. This is great news for people that live in Denver, particularly people who are homeowners in Denver. It does bode well for the greater Colorado economy also.

Regarding the greater economy, the team at Watson Buys is still cautious because of job losses occurring in mid to high level paying jobs. There is evidence of large companies laying off people. However, the housing market is large, interest rates remain historically low, and the banking fundamentals a robust. For this reason, we remain cautiously optimistic for Denver and the surrounding areas like Lakewood, Arvada, Aurora, and down South in Littleton or Castle Rock even.

Watson Buys will continue to support Denver communities. We will continue to buy houses from people that need to sell them. We are grateful for your support and will continue our mission to support you too. We will keep producing housing market reports like this and previous ones for you.
