The sales price increases are good news for the rebounding real estate industry. While the figures in Colorado Springs are strong, they trail the national average, where home sales prices increased 12.1 percent year-over-year.
Nationally, April saw the biggest year-over-year home price increase since February 2006, according to the report. However, the national home price index is still 22.4 percent below its 2006 peak.
These numbers are tending along the same path as the market for Metro Denver homes and it will be interesting to see if the trend continues through the year. As we have been discussing, the huge lack of inventory has been hurting buyers and has turned the market into a true Sellers' market in a matter of months.
