A Look at 2022 from a Homie Expert

Phillip Kranefuss, our Head of Real Estate in Colorado had this to say about the future of the market in 2022: 

“The Denver market is slowly awakening from its December slumber as we head into the new year. Buyer demand has come out strong, even in the face of rising interest rates However, listings are ebbing at historical lows and lagging behind where we would expect them to be halfway through January. At this point, it looks like a continuation of the ultra-low listings inventory coupled with strong buyer demand status quo, resulting in a very competitive local market.”
