September 2019 Housing Market Statistics

Although we saw seasonal cooling month over month, the Denver Metro Area housing market remained strong in September year over year. At the close of the third quarter of 2019, all major year-to-date indicators are up compared to last year. Home prices continue to increase, but at a slower rate, as we've seen relatively level pricing since May. Strong demand from buyers drove homes under contract up nearly 25% compared to this time last year.
