DENVER – April 7, 2015– REcolorado, Colorado’s largest MLS and the provider ofREcolorado.com, today released its March 2015 report on the Denver-area housing market, which includes data from REcolorado’s 17,000 members who operate throughout the greater Denver Metro area. The March report shows increases across most major indicators, signaling the start of what is shaping up to be a very active and competitive selling season.
March brought 6,247 new listings to the market, a 38 percent increase as compared to last month, and three percent more than this time last year. However, new listings did little to ease the inventory crunch. In March, there were 5,166 active listings on the market, a two percent increase over last month and 24 percent less than March of 2014.
“The Denver area’s tremendous growth, strong economy, and low unemployment rate, along with interest rates that are remaining near historic lows, are keeping demand for housing very strong in our market,” said Kirby Slunaker, president and CEO of REcolorado. “We saw an impressive number of new listings come on the market in March, which was a welcome sign as we kick off the 2015 buying and selling season.”
Eager home buyers quickly scooped up the active inventory and, in the process, sent home sales soaring. In March, 4,140 homes sold, a 46 percent month-over-month increase and one percent higher than compared to this time last year.
The continued demand for homes, coupled with low inventory levels brought an increase in average sold prices. In March, the average price for a single family home increased $9,784 or three percent in one month. Average sold price is up 15 percent as compared to this time last year.
Denver’s competitive housing market brought another month where the sales cycle was extremely fast. In March, homes spent an average of just 33 days on market, six days shorter than last month and 14 days fewer than March 2014.

Everyone knows that Annie was a true showstopper and expert markswoman
"After deciding to move to Denver from NYC, my father and I decided to spend our vacation in Denver back in August, for the purpose of beginning the search for a new home. My father and I contacted Marc, and he made what we thought would be a long, drawn out process seem relatively easy. Before we knew it, my father and I owned a home by the time we finished our vacation in nine days.
Marc was very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, patient and an all-around great person. He took the time to educate us, as we were first time home owners, and show us all around the Denver metro area. He also continues to follow up with us after the sale, which we really appreciate. I highly recommend Marc for your relocation needs.
