The average days on the market for both single family homes and condos has risen significantly. A seller’s market would be anything less than five months of inventory, and we are at two months on condos and about 3-4 months on single family homes, so we are still in a seller’s market but coming to a place with more stability than scarcity. According to a CBS News business insider, Denver is the ninth hottest real estate market with a projected 3.9 percent increase in the market and a very low unemployment rate of 2.9 percent.”
