Typically things are beginning to cool off in the real estate market around this time, but that is simply not the case here in Colorado Springs.
Home sales are up 29.4% from last September at 1,804 homes sold! This is one of the highest increases in sales we’ve seen, and the highest increase for a September month!
The median price broke a new record at $385,000 which is up 18.3% from last year. The average price is up roughly 17.1% at $431,293, coming in second for the all-time high average.
The inventory (or lack thereof) continues to break records, with only 992 homes in the entire Pikes Peak Region for sale as of October 1st. This equates to a 0.55 month supply or roughly 16 days– the lowest we have ever seen! If we only look at homes with a Colorado Springs mailing address, the number is even more shocking, at merely 541 homes for sale!
The competition for buyers is extremely fierce right now with such low inventory to choose from.
