Monthly Mortgage Market Trends

April 2019

April Mortgage Trends Insight


Producing Branch Manager

Many experts are predicting our spring housing market will see its best home buying season in years. There is still a lot of talk about a pending recession, however, when we see trends like falling mortgage rates, rising home inventory, and slowing price growth; what we might find is that the recession ends before we knew it began.

Inside this month’s Insight video, I discuss several fundamental economic indicators that continue to support a stable housing market:

  • GDP
  • Unemployment
  • Core Inflation
  • Job Growth
  • Interest rates

In Denver, we are starting to shake off the fear from last fall’s spike in rates, drop in the market as well as the winter doldrums. Sellers are coming out as inventory continues to climb slowly back towards a March average of 14,743 active inventory, wrapping up March 2019 at 6,292 homes for sale. Months of Inventory (MOI) is still tight, however, as homes are selling as they are coming on the market. MOI is less than 2 months for both single family homes and condos, with just over 5 MOI when you get over $1 million purchase price, down from 7 months… showing some much needed activity in the higher end markets in March.

Days on market is also down and appreciation continues to gain momentum while becoming more normalized. If this continues, we are headed towards the balanced market we have waited for so long.

This is an exciting market for those of us in the business and the clients we serve! If you want to stay ahead of the changes and continue building wealth in real estate… call me! This is exactly where our team excels!
