The Denver Metro Association of Realtors released its February report, and the average price for single-family homes skyrocketed to $500K!

If you think homes in Denver are expensive, well, you'd be right. In fact, a home in Evergreen recently sold for $5,100,000, making it the most expensive in the Denver metro area (or just outside it)! And according to the Denver Metro Association of Realtors, the average price for residential properties -- single-family detached homes AND condos -- is only continuing to grow. Not in the millions, obviously, but there's definitely a noticeable increase. The average price for residential properties was $400,000 in February, while single-family homes hit half a million dollars and condos averaged at $300,000. This is an increase of nearly four percent from January 2018 and more than 12 percent from February 2017, where the average was just under $360,000.

Not only are prices increasing with each passing month, but the number of active listings has risen to 4,084 -- a 5.5 percent increase from January 2018 and 5.31 percent increase from February 2017. Single-family homes jumped 3.32 percent and condos more than 11 percent. Though, to compare, the historical average number of active listings for February is typically 14,000 or more. So not a huge rise, but it is slowly increasing from month to month. You can review the full trends report by the Denver Metro Association of Realtors HERE. What do you think?
