Front Range Real Estate Market Update, 9/16/2021

In August, 20.9% of the homes for sale had been reduced in price. In the one-week period that ended a week ago, there were 596 price reductions. This past week, there were 772. In other words, during the past week, there were 29.5% more price reductions than there were the week before.

It’s not April or May, but many sellers and their agents don’t seem to realize that. While the market still favors sellers, it is slowing and we can’t price as aggressively as we did a few months ago.

The change in seasons may not be the only reason things are shifting to a more balanced market for buyers and sellers. In the Denver area, there were 34% fewer homes for sale here than during August 2020. In other parts of the country, though, we’re starting to see a rise in the number of homes for sale. This could be an indicator of what will happen here.

In Baltimore, for example, there were 20.2% more homes for sale this August compared to last. In Kansas City, listings were up 15.7%. In Philadelphia, the number of homes for sale increased 13.3%, and in Phoenix it was 6.3%. If inventories increase in our area as they have in many other parts of the country, there will be further pressure on prices. We don’t expect prices to drop, but the increases will likely not be as dramatic as we’ve been seeing.

If you plan to list your home for sale soon, be sure not to over-price, which can scare off prospective buyers who are savvier now than ever. It can also result in your home taking much longer to sell and you ending up with less money in your pocket.
