“The Denver luxury market is outperforming over last year, chiefly due to increasing inventory,” said Ann Kerr of Kentwood Real Estate.  “The number of listings in the residential luxury inventory from 2016 through August 2017 has more than tripled, which should allow for increased sales as long as demand stays strong.  The buyers who are currently looking for luxury homes are more knowledgeable than ever about market values.  Those sellers who are also in tune with the market are able to sell quickly, while homes priced out of the market range are sitting without selling, even in this active environment.”
