Colorado Springs Market Update

as of December 1, 2018

We are in a Hot Seller’s Market.  

Now is a great time to sell your Colorado Springs home and get the most money for it. Indications as of the last few months have suggested that we may have hit the top of the market as Home Sales have dropped slightly, the Median Home price seems to have stabilized, and Inventory has increased slightly. The Average days on market has also increased slightly to 31 days on market.


Colorado Springs has one month of home inventory which means their is a very low supply. The demand for homes in Colorado Springs is very high as well so there are typically multiple offers on homes. The Demand is High because Colorado Springs is ranked consistently as one of the best places to live! According to U.S. News & World Report Colorado Springs Ranks #1 for Most Desirable Places to Live in the Country!

The supply and demand curve has pushed home prices up. In Colorado Springs the median home price in November 2017 was $280,000 and today in November 2018 the median home price is $305,000. That is a 10% increase in home prices on average in one year.

What does our Colorado Springs Market Update really mean?  It means that if no more homes were listed on the market as of today, it would take just over 48 days (30 days per month x 1.6 absorption rate) for all the homes currently listed to be sold.  

So with very Low supply and High demand for the limited number of homes available, this has caused an increase in Home prices not only last month but over the last several years.

Let’s look at Last Month’s numbers:

As of December 1, 2018 we have an Absorption rate of  1.6 months on hand of inventory. This means that if we are at 1.5 or lower we are in a very Hot Seller’s market. If we were at 6 we would be in a perfectly balanced market.  If we were at 7 or more we would be in a Buyer’s Market.  Let’s look at the Colorado Springs Market Update numbers below.

1. Our first number is the time frame, that being 1 month, the month of November.
2. Our second number is the number of homes sold last month, that being 1096 homes sold in November.
3. Our third number is 1756 which was the number of Active listings on Nov 30th (for El Paso County).

1756/1096 = 1.6     1.6 x 1 month = 1.6 months of inventory = Hot Seller’s Market

By using the above Absorption rate calculations we can best determine whether we are in a Buyer’s or Seller’s market. Absorption rate (Inventory) is a measurement of the rate at which a group of homes in a particular area get processed through the system.  If the absorption rate is slow (higher number), that means there will be in increase in supply of homes which leads to a buyer’s market.  If absorption rate is fast (lower number), that means there will be a decrease in supply of homes which leads to a seller’s market. It is really a function of supply and demand where supply is the current inventory of homes and demand is what has been sold in a given time frame. Absorption rate is the best metric to determine if we are in a buyer’s or seller’s market, however knowing average days on market, home price trend, and home sales trends are obviously good metrics to determine market conditions in your area.

Thinking of Selling?…I would love to support you.
