Smaller square footage homes continue to fetch a higher average price per square foot. Larger homes fetch somewhat less, and usually take longer to sell, due to the higher list price and smaller market for homes over 500K.
Of recent homes sold since last year in City Park West, average price per square foot has risen considerably, as has most of downtown Denver. There are some nice homes available currently that are priced reasonably.
As interest rates continue to be low, it is still a good time to list or buy a home. Demand is likely to continue through the holiday season. Buyers may benefit from buying now, because average listing price per square foot has gone down some since the summer. It is critical to check listings weekly, as the good homes sell quickly. The good news for buyers is that the bidding war frenzy has slowed down some. With interest rates predicted to rise slightly in 2016 and despite the typical winter seasonal market slowdown, the data indicates that November into the new year, will continue to be a great time to buy or sell.
