As the weather cools down, so does the September Denver Housing Market. Evidently, October 2023 presents incredible opportunities for first-time homebuyers despite the screaming “inflation and higher mortgage rates” headlines.
Nicole Rueth, member of the DMAR Market Trends Committee and Local Mortgage Expert, comments on the benefits of today’s market and why it’s so important to take advantage of a slower market. “…Inventory has been steadily increasing, which means more options for buyers. Yet demand is softening.” Rueth continues to touch on how there’s a sweet spot for first-time homebuyers that allows them to be a bit picky with their options, all while swapping bidding wars for negotiating seller concessions.

The Bottom Line
The latest report from the Denver Metro Association of Realtors (DMAR) states that there are currently 7629 attached and detached homes available in the entire Denver Metro area. This shows a decrease in available properties, but not one worth any concern as the numbers are down only 0.7% from September 2022.
Meanwhile, affordability remains a serious issue for Denver homebuyers. The median sales price is $585,000 this month. Although high comparatively, these numbers are slightly up from $581,000 reported just last month.
There are 4589 new homes hitting the market this season, showing a downward slide from the 5251 on the market this time last year. Which subsequently is impacting the “days on market”, which is up 36.84%. Ultimately proving that our market is not as cutthroat as the busier market we experienced last year.
