DENVER, CO - The number of luxury homes sold (sales over $1M) in the Denver metro market increased year-over-year in April 2016, compared to April 2015, by 25%.

“The number of available listings in the luxury market has increased for the third straight month, and is now close to the peak of last summer,” said LIV Sotheby’s International Realty president, Scott Webber. “Despite the added supply of choices, however, the overall level of demand has still not been met, and the increase in closed sales is almost as high as that of new listings.”
In Denver metro, average selling price held at $1.53M in March. Average price per square foot increased to $409 in April, a 3% increase from $396 in March, 2016, and days on market dropped 7% year-over-year, from 125 days in April 2015, to 116 days in April 2016.

“Our inventory is finally creeping back up, but we’re still under 200 luxury listings active on the market, and sales are averaging about 30 per month,” said Boulder managing broker, David Carner, of LIV SIR. “The dearth of choices is still driving a frenzied pace in our market, with demand outpacing supply by a long shot. Total properties sold in the last twelve months was 357 in Boulder County, or nearly one every day of the year.”
