Market Conditions

The real estate market conditions for Colorado Springs show some reprieve for buyers for the first time in a long time! We saw the first increase in inventory since April 2020, and before that it was April 2019! The active inventory is up 15.1% over last year at 1,146 homes for sale. The months-supply is sitting at 0.65 or just under 20 days. As we start to see a little more inventory come on market, buyers will start to have more options, easing the competition ever so slightly on home buyers.

However, things are still pretty competitive as the median time on market is only 4 days! Plus, we are still seeing double-digit price appreciation. We had a median sold price of $440,000 last month, up 14.3% from last year. The average is sitting just below the $500k threshold at $498,004 (up 15.5% year-over-year).

Home sales were down slight at 2.6% from last September at 1,758 homes sold. Pending sales are sitting at 2,149 homes as of October 1st.

So what does all that mean for you as a seller? List your home with us now, and we’ll likely have it under contract in a week or less.

What does all this mean for buyers? A glimpse of hope is here, with more listings coming this year versus last. Still, plan on writing many offers over the course of several weeks before you win one. Unless of course you have plenty of cash, and are willing to pay well more than what the appraisals would indicate. Let us help you get the house you want in a time of no inventory!
