The inventory has broken records again and has dwindled even further to a record low of 567 homes for sale in the entire Pikes Peak Region (The lowest we have ever seen!). This equates to a 0.41 month supply of homes, or roughly 12 days. Even more concerning is the fact that of these homes, only 248 are actually in the city of Colorado Springs. This lack of inventory has created fierce competition among buyers amidst a time when our population is at its highest.
Home sales are up 10.3% from last December at 1,376 homes sold! Pending sales are sitting at 1,486 homes as of January 1st.
Prices continue to rise, partially due to the high demand and lack of supply. The median price was $380,000 which is up 15.2% from last year. The average price broke yet another record and is up 19.9% at $437,168.
With increased demand and record low interest rates, our inventory problem will likely persist for some time. Sellers continue to see multiple offers and their homes under contract in a matter of days. Buyers are experiencing bidding wars and few home options.
