Hot homes: 7 Denver listings for eager buyers
Colorado house hunters are prepared to act fast and in some cases throw down the gauntlet to secure the keys to their dream homes in this fiercely competitive market.
By the numbers: Over 70% of hopeful Denver metro homebuyers said they'd make an offer within three days of seeing a listing, Bank of America found in its 2022 Homebuyer Insights Report. That's compared to 65% nationally.
- 32% of prospective buyers feel pressured to find and purchase a home before the end of 2022.
- A little more than 30% of interested buyers in Denver are willing to offer 5-10% over asking price, the report said.
"Offers of $300,000 over asking price were not uncommon, with one home we know of closing $600,000 over list price," said Colleen Covell, DMAR Market Trends Committee member.
