It’s almost that time of year – many of our local schools will be back in session … soon!
If you’re like me and have been juggling the summer schedules of multiple children, I think it’s safe to say this is one of the more exciting times of the year for us parents. And it’s also this time of year when I feel most indebted and thankful for all our teachers, administrators, and support staff. They do one of the most important jobs I can think of, and I wish everyone the best for a smooth transition to the school year.
Now with that said, let’s chat about the Central Park real estate market!
Here’s one data point I wanted to focus on:
This week there are 53 total resale listings in Denver’s Central Park!
In contrast, the week of January 7 there were approximately 10 total resale listings. And though inventory changes on a daily basis as homes are listed and sold, through a good part of the spring we consistently seemed to have around 10-20 or so total resale listings (give or take a few depending on the point in time you pull the data).
So what does that 53 number mean? Well, inventory continues to remain high. We have more homes to sell, and anecdotally what we’ve seen with home buyers across the Denver metro, there seem to be fewer buyers ready to pounce on listings these days.
You can blame interest rates, which are moving up, down, and sideways (pictures a seismograph machine measuring an earthquake), but there are likely many variables that are proving to be headwinds on the buyer side.
Here’s what Freddie Mac said yesterday on interest rates:
“Mortgage rates remained volatile due to the tug of war between inflationary pressures and a clear slowdown in economic growth. The high uncertainty surrounding inflation and other factors will likely cause rates to remain variable, especially as the Federal Reserve attempts to navigate the current economic environment.”
Ultimately, it seems we’re continuing to move back to a more neutral market, where both buyers and sellers have leverage and smart marketing is more important than ever.
Our local real estate market is changing by the day – so get ready!
Last but certainly not least, my business partner and our managing broker here at Focus Real Estate, Joe Phillips, did a great video on the market shift we’re seeing. Check out his Facebook video here.
