Colorado in the News

Denver County’s median prices up nearly 15% in one month

Colorado is continuing its record-setting trend of steep increases in home prices across the state. In the seven-county metro area, single-family homes hit a record median sale price of $615,000, a 20% increase from February 2021, according to the February report from the Colorado Association of Realtors (CAR). Between January and February alone, median prices of single-family homes in Denver County rose by 14.6% (or $84,000) from $575,000 to $659,000, an increase higher than what occurred in the entire year of 2016.

Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at Corelogic

While higher interest rates make purchasing more difficult for some buyers, it can also lead to less competition in the marketplace. With lower demand, prices are more likely to moderate, creating a more balanced market.
