In yet another sign of the housing market's scorching, albeit preposterous heat, nationwide single-family home prices jumped 19.7% in July from a year earlier, the sharpest spike in over three decades, per a Bloomberg report out this week.
Zoom in: In Denver, where the median home price hovers around $600,000, budget-friendly listings tend to go quick.
Pro tip: "The most important factor isn’t whether or not you can get a mortgage, it’s whether or not you can win a bidding war," Danielle Hale, Realtor.com's chief economist, recently said.
