Denver Realtor Reviews: Denver Real Estate Market Statistics December 2019 Conclusion

The real estate market within a 30 mile radius of Denver Colorado ended the year strongly in seller's favor, but the lack of affordability and inventory have significantly lessened buyer demand. Bidding wars are less frequent.  Homes that are not move-in ready or have significantly undesirable features are selling more slowly than they had, as more desirable homes are available on the market longer. Sellers are being forced to price their homes more competitively to sell quickly and put more effort into preparing their home for sale.
