Denver Real Estate Market Report for January 2021 (HubSpot test)


Denver Housing Market Update

Buyer demand broke a multitude of records this past year in the Mile High City. December 2020 set the record low for the number of active listings and July 2020 set the record high for the most homes sold. According to DMAR, “This is the first time in Denver Metro’s history that there were over 60,000 homes (62,985 to be exact) purchased throughout the year, that’s 6.95 percent more than the previous year.”

This demand has taken its toll on the supply of homes for sale, with December ending with only 2,541 actives homes for sale across all 11 counties included in the report, down 39.17 percent from December 2019. For buyers of single-family detached homes, the picture is even more grim with only 1,316 active units available at the end of December and a huge portion of those homes  (400) being priced at or above $1 million.

The average close price of all homes (attached and detached) in December 2020 was $547,461 up 13.47 percent from December 2019. The average close price of single-family detached homes alone jumped an even higher 17.06 percent to $616,895.

The average close price of detached single-family homes in December 2020 was $616,895, up an astounding 17.06 percent from December 2019.

Why the Big Short in Housing Supply Will Remain in 2021

“As the housing market has recovered from the initial impacts of the pandemic, nominal house price appreciation has soared, but affordability actually improved until recently due to the house-buying power benefit from historically low mortgage rates. However, for the second month in a row, the Real House Price Index (RHPI) increased, indicating declining affordability. The reason? Rapid nominal house price appreciation has finally outpaced the house-buying power benefit from historically low mortgage rates.”
