According to a report by the Denver Metro Association of Realtors, Denver’s metro area saw just over 7,000 new listings in May, up 56 percent from April but still down almost 17 percent year-over-year. In the 11-county metro, active listings were up 4.6 percent from last month, yet down nearly 20 percent from last year. There were 6,800 sales pending in May which may indicate a more optimistic picture and would reflect an increase of 11.5 percent month-over-month.
The median list price in Salt Lake City increased by 1 percent from May to June. Meanwhile, home resale inventories decreased by 1 percent, down to 494. Distressed properties, foreclosures and short sales, remained the same as a percentage of the total market in June.
The annual home price gains for the Dallas-Fort Worth area over the past year have been significantly lower than the national average during that time frame. Over the years, this metro area has seen home values climb slowly and steadily, yet the long-term housing forecast predicts that home prices will decline by nearly 1.5 percent over the next 12 months. Some experts believe that if Dallas home prices do fall over the next year or so, it will probably be a short-term downturn. Supply and demand will likely push prices up again.
