The inventory reached a new record low of 443 homes for sale in the region. This equates to only a 0.33-month supply of homes, or roughly 10 days. How tight is the inventory? As of this morning, there were only 173 homes for sale in our MLS with a Colorado Springs address that were existing (excluding new construction). At any price. Of those, only 48 were under $400k. Last year on April 1st we had 1,571 homes for sale compared to the 443 homes for sale today. Therefore, it’s not hard to see why the competition is so fierce amongst buyers.
More than ever, this is a GREAT time to sell. Sellers truly have an advantage right now with the high demand and lack of competition. Plus, we even have a program where we can help you buy your next home BEFORE selling your current one to make the transition even easier!
