Is Colorado Springs in a buyer's or seller's market right now?

Neutral Real Estate Market in Colorado SpringsColorado Springs recently experienced the most robust "seller market" we have ever seen. Now, things are shifting towards buyers. There were only 1,067 homes sold last month. That is the least amount of homes sold in August, going back over ten years. Prices are slowly dropping in Colorado Springs as more homes enter the market and high interest rates challenge buyers.

Sellers now have to wait longer and possibly drop the sales price to get their homes sold. In addition, many sellers don't want to sell right now because their current interest rate is much less than rates offered by mortgage lenders today.

Despite the slowdown in our local market, people are still moving to Colorado Springs in large numbers. As a result, commercial development is booming, and neighborhoods are still building new homes.

Is the Colorado Springs housing market going to crash soon?

Our local real estate market has experienced an increase in inventory over the last year, but not enough to slow it down to a recession. Today's median price of a home listed for sale is only 2% lower than last year. No signs of a housing market crash in Colorado Springs exist, but a shift is happening.

Even with interest rates rising in 2023, housing prices are still steady in the Pikes Peak region. The supply of inventory is slowly becoming enough to meet the demand for single-family homes in Colorado Springs.

On the flip side, more and more people are starting to cash out on their equity by borrowing against their property. As a result, the national housing market seems to be changing, but it's too soon to tell when inventory will return and help balance the need. It's a strange time to try and predict the housing market.
