Colorado Real Estate Market Trends & Analysis

The Colorado real estate market is in rare company. Few state-wide markets (if any) have demonstrated a larger propensity for success than real estate in Colorado. If for nothing else, the entire state has remained at the forefront of the national housing market for the better part of a decade. That said, the Colorado housing market isn't without its own flaws. Not unlike everywhere else, inventory is in short supply. While increasing ever so slightly over the course of 2021, inventory is losing out to the speed at which homes are selling. As a result, prices have increased at an exponential pace over the last 12 months.

Therein lies the foundation of the Colorado real estate market: supply and demand. There aren't enough homes in the Colorado housing market to keep up with demand. In response to the competition, homeowners have increased their asking prices accordingly. As a result, real estate investors in Colorado have been forced to reevaluate their own exit strategies. Where flipping was once the area's preferred investment strategy, long-term strategies have become more prevalent. Due, in large part, to the new marketplace created in the wake of the pandemic, rental properties appear to be a more viable exit strategy, and investors are starting to take notice.
