Finding a Home in a Fast-Paced Market

Homes are Selling Quickly in Colorado! Here’s how to find yours before it slips away.

The latest housing market statistics show that homes are still selling quickly in the Colorado market. In a fast-paced market, home buyers have to be ready to move quickly when they find the right home.

Set up Saved Searches

Homes for sale spent an average of only 27 days on the market in May, with a median of only 5 days. When homes sell this quickly, it’s important for home buyers to find new homes that meet your criteria quickly – as soon as the home comes on the market.

  • Price range
  • Number of bedrooms and bathrooms

  • Walk Score
  • Features (Agriculture, city or mountain view, horse property, etc.)
