An Overview of the National Market:

  • Federal Reserve raises interest rates for first time in 2018 and indicates two more rate hikes coming this year. – Housing Wire
  • Starter homes are in short supply, and getting shorter. On the surface, the inventory situation in the US appears to finally be turning the corner after years of extremely low supply have led to ever-increasing prices. Indeed, the supply of homes in the US increased by 3.3% in the 4th quarter of 2017. However, a closer look reveals that the increase is due to a large 13.3% increase in the supply of premium homes while the supply of starter homes continues to decline.” – Builder
  • “Most evidence suggests that fundamentals will prevail over time and push sales and prices higher, especially at the lower and middle tiers of the market. But the opposing forces could mean a period of uncertain dealmaking. Higher mortgage rates and a new tax law will affect several elements of home buying.” – New York Times, What to Expect from the Housing Market this Spring

What’s Happening in Denver:

  • “Seasonally, March signals the start of the spring selling season bringing increased buyer and seller activity. Homebuyers will see more properties available for sale, while home sellers will see increased competition from other sellers.” – DMAR
  • “Denver real estate is a bargain…at least if you are coming from San Francisco. Pilot John R. Tennyson late last year moved from San Francisco to Denver. Tennyson, a pilot with Southwest Airlines, brings a mile-high perspective to the Mile High city’s real estate, which has never been more expensive.” Colorado Real Estate Journal
