The 5,301 active listings at September’s month-end represented the lowest amount of active housing inventory available on record for any month of September by 2,215 properties. This translates into the toughest market to buy a home in metro-Denver’s history according to DMAR Market Trends Committee Chair and Metro Denver REALTOR® Andrew Abrams.

In September 2020, there were 3,041 single-family homes available for sale, a decrease from the previous low of 5,693 in September 2017. The median days on market in the entire residential market was six, which was three days lower than the previous record set in September 2015 and 2016. For both single-family and condo homes, there were more closed and pending transactions than ever before reaching 5,850 homes that sold and 6,376 homes in pending status.
