Mortgage charges loosen stock in Denver, however costs maintain climbing


DENVER (KDVR) — It may be easier to find and make an offer on a home in the Denver area than it has been in recent months, but April stats show it will cost you more.

In March, there were 2,221 active listings for both freestanding and attached residential properties in the Denver area. In April it was 3,204.

Although this is a reversal from the record lows in housing supply over the last six months, it is still a low compared to historical data. The 3,204 listings available correspond to the number of homes available last October.

Relaxed or not, the increasing number of offers available has no impact on the inexorable upward trend in prices.

A detached single-family home in the Denver area closed in April for an average of $650,000.

That’s an uptrend of 48% in just five years, when the median price was $440,000 in April 2018. Prices started to increase in 2020 and have continued to increase since then.
