July 2017 – Montrose Colorado Real Estate Market Update

July 2017 – Montrose Colorado Real Estate Market Update
High Octane Summer

The Montrose Colorado Real Estate market is still running on all cylinders this summer as housing inventory shortages prove to be the prevailing headwind for 2017. The median sale price in Montrose for last month was $216,000. The number of units sold was up 15% from the same time last year while the number of days on market was down 22%, a substantial reflection of just how heated the housing market has become. The majority of homes priced under $300,000 are going under contract within 2 weeks of listing. While this is music to the ears of sellers, buyers are in a conundrum regarding limited housing options.

National Market

montrose-real-estate-market-statsNationally, the real estate market is very similar to Montrose, reflecting extremely tight inventories and looming concerns surrounding affordability. The national median days on market dropped to just 27 days in May. New home construction is occurring, but in the higher price ranges where builders are attracted to potentially higher profit margins. The median sale price for new construction in May was at $345,800. This new build sale price is the highest seen since the metric has been recorded. The majority of new builds in Montrose involve baby boomers constructing or purchasing new homes, which at retirement age have nest eggs to invest in new housing rather than sift through existing inventory.
