Denver Real Estate Market Report for June 2021

Denver Real Estate Market Report for June 2021

Denver’s Housing Market Incredibly Active and Inventory Receives a Much Needed Bump

In June 2021, Denver saw a large increase in homes for sale compared to last month, but buyers are still facing challenges — prices are still on the rise and most homes are selling in just 10 days. Active listings are down year-over-year a hefty 51.09 percent but up 50.5 percent month-over-month, a very encouraging sign for fatigued home buyers. Numbers are up month-over-month across the board: active listings are up, sold homes are up, pending homes are up, and sold homes are up.

According to DMAR, “For the first time in what feels like a long time, buyers have to compete with less competition, and therefore, the extreme bidding wars have drastically decreased. Sellers are now adjusting their listing strategy to what the comps suggest. However, while inventory did drastically increase from the previous month, we are still at less than one-third of the total inventory compared to 2019 at this time.”

A quick look at what happened in June:

  • Denver metro’s active listings available at the end of the month declined by 51.09% over last year
  • The June median sale price was $545,000, up 22.47% compared to last year
  • The typical home spent 10 days on the market in June, 11 days less than the same time last year
  • The average price of a single-family detached home is currently $728,385, an increase of $167,950 from the same period a year ago

Home price increase and buyer competition continue, can it last?

“There’s no way the double-digit price growth can continue long term,” says Chief Economist Danielle Hale.

Many home buyers wonder if their home will hold its value once the impact of COVID-19 is truly over. Experts say most buyers shouldn’t worry. The supply and demand imbalance should keep most home prices stable.”

Denver real estate: Median home price hits record, but could bidding wars be cooling?

“The 2,137 single-family homes available for sale at the end of June is nearly 60% higher than May’s depressed count, and the active inventory of condos and townhomes rose 33.3% month-over-month to 985. Combined, the Denver area experienced a 50.5% gain in its active inventory, a new record for a monthly increase and six-fold higher than the 5.9% gain averaged between May and June.”

Denver’s housing market eases a bit, but buyer challenges remain

“In Denver, we had the perfect storm hit our residential real estate market last year,” Jenny Usaj said. “Interest rates have been low. People who have been Zoom-calling from their closets wanted more space and focused on their homes. When the whole city closed, people were at their homes and in their backyards and focus shifted to improving.”

Headlines: What’s Happening Nationally

Home prices have hit a new high—Is the housing market about to crash?

 “Experts say there’s no reason to prepare for a crash landing like we experienced in 2008 and 2009. This time around, the reason for the out-of-control prices is simply that there are many more buyers than there are properties for sale. Another simple rule: Prices rise when there is more demand than supply. Crazy, it seems, is the new normal.”

CDC extends eviction moratorium through July

“The Biden administration says the extension is for “one final month” and will allow time for it to take other steps to stabilize housing for those facing eviction and foreclosure. The White House says it is encouraging state and local courts to adopt anti-eviction diversion programs to help delinquent tenants stay housed and avoid legal action.”


New home sales fall short of expectations, but dropping lumber prices could provide breathing room

“New home sales occurred at a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 769,000 in May, the U.S. Census Bureau reported Wednesday. The figure represented a 5.9% drop from the previous month’s revised figure, but was up 9.2% from a year ago.”

Time to act: ‘The state of America’s housing stock is dire’

“‘There is a strong desire for homeownership across this country, but the lack of supply is preventing too many Americans from achieving that dream,’ said Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist. ‘It’s clear from the findings of this report and from the conditions we’ve observed in the market over the past few years that we’ll need to do something dramatic to close this gap.'”
