DENVER, CO - A report released Wednesday by LIV Sotheby's International Realty, indicated that both the Denver metro and Boulder luxury real estate market enjoyed an extended fall selling season in 2017, based on the increased number of luxury home sales (sales over $1 million) that took place in November. Additionally, the brokerage is credited with capturing the top four luxury home sales in Denver in the month of November, indicating consumers’ continued desire to invest in luxury real estate in Colorado, and confidence in working alongside a globally recognized real estate brand when purchasing a luxury home.

This time last year we had a 7.6-month supply. Anything under 6 months is considered a seller’s market, and we are trending in that direction.”
