Hot homes: 7 gems on the market across the metro area
Metro Denver, which encompasses 1.4 million households, had fewer than 1,500 homes for sale at the end of 2021, compared to 2,541 last year, according to the latest data from the Denver Metro Association of Realtors.
What they're saying: "Demand is not slowing, it is only limited by what is for sale," Nicole Reuth, a producing branch manager for Fairway Independent Mortgage in Englewood, said following the DMAR report presentation.
- "What will put even more pressure on January's inventory is the unimaginable tragedy of the Marshall Fire. As thousands of people are displaced, many will look for replacement homes ... Those buyers were not in the market just a week ago," she added.
Earlier this week, Axios' Alayna Alvarez wrote: To rent or to buy, that is the question.
