October 2011 Colorado Springs home sales were up 20.1% over 2010, making it the 2nd best October since 2006. The good new was tempered by prices that remain soft, with the average and the median both down 7.8% and 7.5% respectively. Low interest rates and a recovering local economy are both factors in the highers numbers. The inventory of unsold homes dropped below 4,000 for the first time since December of 2009, and is actually at its lowest level since December of 2005, indicating we may soon be shifting back to more of a balanced market.
