Sloan's Lake Area Market Update: Summer 2022

As summer winds down, it’s clear that we’re experiencing a shifting market in Denver. In addition to the seasonal slow down that summer tends to bring, other contributing factors are the hike in interest rates, inflation, buyer fatigue and an overall economic slow down. We’re now seeing a reduction in showing activity, increased days on market and a major increase in available inventory. 
 
When I ran the numbers in March of this year, we only had 46 active listings in 80211 and 80212; today, active inventory is up 202%, with 139 listings on the market. However, with the Spring’s rapid increase in prices, our average sale price has gone up; it was $792,600 in the Spring and $859,673 today, so around an 8% increase. At one point this summer, the average price in 80211 and 80212 surpassed $1M (!) so the fact that it has settled down is a welcomed change for buyers. 
 
This shift means multiple offer situations are occurring less, price reductions are more common, and fewer offers are including waived contingencies. And buyers once again have a chance to negotiate on repairs during inspection or on a low appraisal. Bottom line: it’s still tough to be a buyer in northwest Denver, but slightly less than it was a few months ago. And while Sellers may not get 10 offers over asking price without contingencies, with the right listing prep, marketing and pricing strategy, they are still getting historically high prices for their homes.
