In the Pikes Peak Region, the summer market is already shaping up to be a good one, especially when analyzing some interesting statistics last month. Most notably, we have 1,355 homes for sale as of 6/1. This is an increase 132.4% over last May! We have not seen levels this high since July 2020! What an exciting thing for our buyers!

However, even with the increased inventory, prices and sales continue to rise. We still only have a 0.80 month supply of homes, which is roughly 24 days. It’s important to note that we are still considerably under pre-Covid inventory levels even with this increase. For example, in May 2020 we had 1,558 homes for sale and in May 2019 we had 1,849 homes for sale.

The median price broke the record last month and reached a new high of $487,000. The average price increased 13.1% to $554,013. Sales went up 8.9% last month at 1,689 homes sold. 
Here are the key statistics last month: 
* Inventory is up 132.4% 
* Sales are up 8.9%
* New record median price!
* Homes are selling in a median of 4 days
* Homes sold for 3.1% over list price on average

As inventory increases, sellers will have more competition. If you are thinking of selling, don’t delay! For buyers, there will finally be some more options to choose from. However, prices are not going down and homes are still selling in less than a week. So waiting too long will still cost you.
