According to Metrolist, there were 17 percent more homes sold in Metro Denver in 2013, at 54,024, compared to 46,299 sold during 2012.
“The Denver metro area real estate market saw all-time highs in 2013 for both home sales and average price,” said Kirby Slunaker, CEO and president of Metrolist. “While the market cooled slightly at year-end, as one would expect, the numbers year over year are just incredible.”
Metro Denver single family home sales broke the previous all-time record of 41,682 set in 2004, coming in at 42,762 single-family homes sold in 2013.
So among my resolutions this New Year? I’ve resolved to be more optimistic – about traffic, the weather, the US government… and I am definitely feeling optimistic about the Metro Denver real estate market. There are buyers for owners looking to sell, homes are still moving at a cheerful clip, and the sun is shining, folks! It’s a great time to go house shopping.
So call me or drop a line – I’d love to help you find your own reason to smile about Denver real estate.
