August 2021 Market Report

August Market Update

AVERAGE SOLD PRICE:

  • August 2020 – $556,374
  • August 2021 – $675,319

For the first time in 8 months, we have seen a drop in the average sale price of homes in the Denver Metro area. It is still a 21.4% increase since last year, but with the decrease from last month, we are starting to see the market level out.

MONTHLY INVENTORY:

  • August 2020 – 1.9 inventory
  • August 2021 – 0.9 inventory

Three months! We have seen the monthly inventory increase for the third time as the market cools down from a hot summer sell season on top of a COVID crazy market.

ACTIVE HOMES:

  • August 2020 – 9,965
  • August 2021 – 5,301

We see a 46.8% decrease in the number of active listings and this is the 14th straight month where we have seen a year-to-year drop. Like the inventory numbers, we have also seen a three-month increase in the month-to-month numbers as we approach the traditional buyer season of the year.

DAYS ON THE MARKET:

  • August 2020 – 28
  • August 2021 – 11

These numbers didn’t change from last month but are still subject to skewing from total remodels and larger homes.
