The city's housing market feels ripe for change, as the median closing price for a home fell at the end of May compared to April, per the latest report by the Denver Metro Association of Realtors.

Yes, but: The decrease was only about a quarter of a percentage point, per Andrew Abrams, chair of DMAR's market trends committee.

The big picture: Price gains are leveling out, and inventory increases could prove to be "early signs that the gravity of higher mortgage rates might be finally starting to pull metro Denver's housing market back to earth," the Denver Post reports.

  • The inventory of single-family homes was up 111.6% from 2021.

Here's a collection of listings across the metro, all under $1 million.
