Overall, June continues to be a record setting month, especially in the lower ranges. The Denver home market continues to be hot; but, now loosening up for Buyers as the rate of price growth is slowing and the number of homes available for sale are increasing. Mortgage interest rates continue to increase. Multiple offers, bidding wars, appraisal and inspection issues, and wire fraud continue to impact the home market. As always, be prepared.
Advice to Sellers:
The Denver Seller’s market continues in the lower ranges and Buyer’s are remaining in the market. As a Seller, you should pretty much know what Buyers are looking for and know that you have to create a lasting impression as you are offering your home for sale. Are you aware that Buyers are now looking for “Smart Homes”? Smart homes are energy efficient and convenient. Smart homes now have new thermostats, lighting control, appliance automation, and security. Is your home a Smart Home?
Are you aware that certain Buyers are now making offers on homes available for sale without even having a showing time set or actually seeing the home?
Be aware that Smart Homes, Healthy Homes, and Life Style choices are a Buyer priority.
Seller preparation includes a good pricing comparison analysis, instructions on staging, what are the top improvements, and a conversation on how the market functions.

Advice to Buyers:
The Denver home market continues to be a Seller’s market especially in the lower price ranges even though the number of active listings increased in June.
