Welcome to Living Colorado Springs!
Merry Christmas! This is one of my favorite times of year, with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, lights on the trees, and a real nip in the air some days. It is also a wonderful time for home buying and selling! With just over 3,100 single family homes for sale as of December 1 in our area, the selection is great, although 14.8% below last years inventory. We also have 30 year fixed interest rates in the upper 3’s to low 4’s, making this one of the most affordable times in history to own part of one of the most beautiful cities in the United States!
Check out Colorado Springs Real Estate Market Conditions as of December 1.
November was another good month for Colorado Springs real estate. Sales were up 10.3% over last year, and the inventory of unsold homes is still a 4 month supply of homes for sale, meaning a rather balanced market, with shortages beginning to appear in certain segments.
In November, the median price (1/2 the homes sold for more) was $216,000 (down 1.8%), and the mean (average) was $245,488, down 1%. Both are likely due to the strong demand for affordable housing we are seeing right now.
