Market Conditions in Denver>Question Details

Jeff, Other/Just Looking in San Francisco, CA

I am researching the Denver housing market? Would anyone mind if I gave them a call to discuss current market conditions?

Asked by Jeff, San Francisco, CA Wed Sep 1, 2010

I am trying to get a better sense about what is happening on the ground such as if any major banks are currently reaching out to realtors to prepare for upcoming supply of distressed properties and how activity looks at different price points in the market? Overall, I would like to speak with someone
that could provide me with more color on the supply and demand characteristics of the market, particularly after the recent expiration of the tax credit. Any volunteers?

Am a Denver native, and have been a builder and real estate brokser for almost 40 years. I know all of Denver's neighborhoods and its' trends. Quicl answer, anything @ or under $300,000 in a reasonalbe neighborhood is gone. Lot of crap available in neighborhoods with no appreciation potential, and you have to supply your own handgun. 303-758-4272

Hi Jeff -- honestly, banks are just as uncooperative than ever, UNLESS they actually own the property. Many people think bank owned/distressed are the best deals. In most cases, they are not. The biggest problem is location. Though you may be able to get a "great" deal on paper, real estate is still about location, location, location.

Supply and demand, again, is different in different communities within the Denver area. The city of Denver always hold value better than the suburbs ... if you're looking for a GREAT investment and can afford higher-end prices, areas like Castle Pines Village, for example, are incredible values. Many (most) of Denver's "luxury home communities" have taken a major beating, and the end is not in site.

If I can provide you with more specific information, don't hesitate to contact me at 303-906-3150, Good luck!

Game on Jeff. Email me anytime.

As a general statement, you'll find that the Denver area is one of the strongest in the US right now. Certain neighborhoods are certainly better than others. But shoot me an email and maybe I can help paint a better picture for you.

And the donkey says, "Pick me, pick me!" For some reason your question and the slew of replies just reminds me of the Shrek film. Have enjoyed reading all the replies thus far. - best Bob Gordon

Hi, Jeff. It all depends... There are some submarkets that are experiencing increases in sales & prices, while some are more challenged. If you are looking for investment property, that will definitely color your needs. For the near-East side, refer to my blog,, where I post the monthly stats on sales. There is also a good article on the front page of the blog about the post-credit impact. But it is MACRO, in my neighborhoods where I dominantly work, it would not apply. My firm, Your Castle Real Estate, is known to be market-data driven. We have a monthly calendar that goes out (not email-able), you can call me & give me your address & I can send some recent months' worth. We also have a daily spreadsheet that analyzes the best and worst values by price point, neighborhood, school district, however. If you're a spreadsheet person, it is invaluable! I am at 303-335-5336. All best, Nicci Hyatt

Hi Jeff,

Banks are not reaching out to Realtors to prepare for the upcoming supply of distressed properties. Banks have a select group of listing agents they use but they are not adding loan programs to help sell these properties. I have several great lenders that would be happy to show you what your options are. There is way more supply than demand right now and it will stay that way for some years to come. The end of the tax credit crushed the market. Feel free to contact me for more info. Matt 303-779-7973

Jeff -

I would be more than happy to speak with you. I am a co-owner of RE/MAX of Cherry Creek. We are the leading real estate company in volume for metro Denver. We have seen a slight uptick in REO listings in the past 30 days, and my inside information points to a steeper increase in the coming months.

Foreclosure sale traffic has not increased significantly, indicating that the additional REO listings are coming out of the shadow inventory vs. new foreclosures.

Please feel free to contact me.
