Strategic Moves in the Spring Market – March 2024 Metro Denver Market

As we step into the spring season, the Denver real estate market is a testament to the power of strategy over sheer luck. Both buyers and sellers, armed with insightful plans and the expertise of their real estate agent, are finding themselves well-positioned to navigate the current market dynamics.

February’s vital statistics for all homes – detached single family (DSF) and attached single family (ASF) combined – included:

  • The average price for homes was up 3.27% compared to the previous month and up 3.04% from February 2023.
  • The average days in the MLS decreased 4.08% from the prior month and are up down 2.08% from a year ago. The median days in MLS decreased from 47 days to 49 days month-over-month.
  • Active listings at months-end were up 13.14% from January and up 45.87% from this time last year.

The surge in new listings and the strategic readiness of sellers to stand out in a bustling market have been crucial. Sellers who’ve meticulously prepared their homes for showings and priced them right have been rewarded with multiple offers, maximizing their returns. Meanwhile, buyers, aware of the growing inventory, are more measured in their approach, taking the time to find homes that truly meet their needs and negotiating effectively to ensure their investments are sound.


For Sellers: The importance of preparation and pricing right cannot be overstated. In a market with increasing options for buyers, making your home stand out through professional staging, necessary repairs, and curb appeal is key to attracting offers. For Buyers: With more listings to choose from, the opportunity to find the home that fits your needs is better than ever. Yet, this abundance also means the need for strategic negotiation and thorough due diligence is paramount.


As the market adapts to the influx of spring listings, staying informed and prepared will be crucial for both buyers and sellers. The right strategy, coupled with the guidance of an experienced real estate agent, can make all the difference in achieving your real estate goals this season.
