December 2020 real estate statistics: Inventory broke records yet again, falling to a record low of 532 homes for sale in the entire Pikes Peak Region. This is less than a 1/2-month-supply of homes, just 12 days. Showing that homes are even more scarce is the statistic that less than 250 of the inventory are in the Colorado Springs city limits.

High demand and low interest rates mean that our inventory problem will persist this year. Sellers get multiple offers on their homes quickly. Buyers must enter bidding wars, with few home to choose from.

What does the real estate market in December tell us about rental homes? More rental homes are needed for all the folks who cannot buy homes because of the low inventory. If you have investment property you’d like to rent out, call us today at (719) 445-7172
