Denver Metro 6 County Inventory Count

Friday Fun Facts: As record low inventory levels continue to dominate the real estate narrative in Colorado – we have been monitoring inventory levels each Friday in the 6 County Denver Metro Area. This week we are up (+741) properties compared to this time last year.  Compared to this time last year we are up +741 properties.  We are now above last years high of 8,418 set on Oct 14th.  Sales have continued to remain strong and our absorption rate remains unchanged at 1.94 months.  Denver County remains above the 2K listing count and continues to lead the Metro with 2,620 active listings and Broomfield County continues to have the fewest listings at 191 properties.  Current publications indicate a balanced real estate market would need a minimum of 18,000 listings (see video below).  Thinking about selling…let’s talk!

What do these numbers mean? To help understand what these numbers mean to our local markets we are now including the number of sold comps during the past 30 days or 1 month.  Looking at our sold numbers over the past month allows us to calculate a monthly absorption rate.  An absorption rate tells us how many months it would take to sell off our entire inventory should we have no new listings.  A balanced market is considered 6 months.  Below we see all 6 counties are under 2 months for the with exception of Denver and Douglas county.  Jefferson County has the lowest absorption rates at 1.57 months while Denver county has the highest rate at 2.49 months.
