Autumn in the Denver Housing Market

The Denver Housing Market is showing significant improvement. In a year-over-year comparison, 20% more homes closed this fall over last year.  Average sold prices for 2013 also show an 8% increase.

 Kirby Slunaker, CEO and President of Metrolist states that “all of our data points to a healthy market, which leads us to believe we are experiencing a true housing market recovery.”

 The demand this fall is strong and a great sign for the real estate market. In 2012 the average days on market was 64. In contrast, from August to September of this year it was only 39 days.

USDA Home Loans: If you do not already have a conditional commitment, then you will not be able to receive a rural housing home loan until the shutdown is resolved.

Conventional and CHFA Home Loans: These should not be delayed unless your loan requires tax transcripts or social security verification

Denver Metro Mortgage Assistance: The 4% grant program for down payment and closing costs will have no delays
