Colorado Springs Real Estate Continues Forward Progress

The Colorado Springs real estate market had another good month in September, with home sales up 15% from last year. The median price was up 3.6%, which is the 7th consecutive month where prices have risen compared to the prior year. Homes for sale were down 11.3% and just under a 5 month supply at the September sales rate. The Pikes Peak Regional Building Department reported September building permits for detached single family homes were up 56.5%. This likely is a result of buyers choosing new construction when there are fewer homes on the market.

Low interest rates are certainly doing their part. Rates have been consistently in the low to mid 3′s. Low long term mortgage rates and increasing rent prices are making the decision to buy rather than rent MUCH more attractive right now.
