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 30 days 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:
How do we know all this? Let’s look at the numbers below, we have 1.1 months of Inventory on hand. Even though we are technically in a Seller’s market, it’s still a great time for Buyers, because prices are still fairly reasonable and interest rates are still at historic lows. Our Colorado Springs Market Update tells us that we have a great environment for Buying and Selling Homes!
As of January 1, 2018 we have an Absorption rate of 0.89 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 December.
2. Our second number is the number of homes sold last month, that being 1206 homes sold in December.
3. Our third number is 1069 which was the number of Active listings on December 31st.
1069/1206 = 1.1 0.89 x 1 month = 0.89 months of inventory = Very 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.
