就像山涧涌流的泉水, new listings poured onto metro Denver’s parched market last month, causing home sales to blossom like daffodils 和 tulips.
The number of new listings for single-family homes in metro Denver shot up 53.5 percent in March from February 和 the number of new listings for condos rose 38.每月增长2%, according to a monthly update from the Denver Metro Association of Realtors.
“历史上, 从2月到3月总是会有波动,Steve Danyilw说, a real estate agent who oversees the DMAR Market Trends Committee. “We were anticipating a jump, but it was a little surprising.”
The surge came after the number of homes available for sale reached a 32-year low at the end of February. 选择的缺乏让买家感到沮丧, pushed down sales 和 raised worries among agents that the supply spigot had rusted shut.
Normally, a 50 percent-plus surge in listings in one month would raise flood warnings. 但很多新挂牌的房屋都被买家买走了, 尤其是在低端市场, 他们一到就走. 单户住宅的销售量激增了39套.9 percent month-over-month, while the number of condo sales rose 27.3%.
The number of average days that listings spent on the market fell from 43 in February to 39 in March, 缓解市场供应过剩的担忧. 但这并不能说明一切. Half of new listings in March were under contract within eight days, Danyliw said.
The inventory of homes available for sale, both single-family 和 condos, rose 26.从2月份到3月份，增长了9%. The average increase in inventory between those two months over the past three decades has run closer to 4.6 percent, 和 last month’s gain was the largest spring jump on record, Danyliw said.
这在一定程度上反映了时机的选择. 通常, 一个上市公司将在周五上市, 周末上映吗, 报价将在接下来的几天进行审核. 3月31日正好是星期五, 是什么增加了活跃市场的库存, 哪些是在一个月的最后一天计算的. It’s almost certain some of the homes listed on March 31 are under contract.
也, 4,921 listings on the market at the end of March is less than a third of the 15,040 listings averaged in March over the past 30 years, Danyilw说. 它保持在7以下,000 or so that would help put more potential sellers at ease about finding a replacement home.
额外的供应并没有抑制价格. The average price of a single-family home sold in March rose 4.月增长率9%，月增长率8%.同比增长4%，达到468889美元. 房价中值为40.6万美元，上涨了2美元.从2月到7日，8%.比去年同期增长9%.
The average price of a condo that sold in March reached $317,402, up 7.从2月到10月，分别上涨3%.7%，从2016年3月开始. The median cost of a condo sold in March was $260,000, up 从2月到10月，分别上涨3%.比去年同期增长7%.
