The Colorado Springs Real Estate Market Report for April 2016
According to the new data released by the Pikes Peak Association of REALTORS® for April 2016, the Colorado Springs real estate market is still struggling to find enough homes to meet the demands of the intense home buying market.
The Bottom line:
We are now at an average of only 36 days on the market for all sales combined. Many homes are selling within hours. We listed this home in Fountain and sold it within 6 hours of being on the market. Homes in the lower price ranges are selling within hours.

The Colorado Springs Real Estate Market is Strong!
April is usually the month where we see an increase in home sales, coming out of the winter months. Although we did see a large increase over last year, some heavy snow storms kept the sales numbers down lower than expected. We are still seeing the same trends of less inventory and very high buyer demand. We still need more listing to satisfy our busy Summer market.
These numbers cover all of Colorado Springs, CO and the surrounding areas, including Black Forest, Broadmoor, Briargate, Fountain, Falcon, Gleneagle, Larkspur, Manitou Springs, Monument, Northgate, Old Colorado City, Palmer Lake, Peyton, Powers, Rockrimmon, Security, Tri-Lakes, Widefield, Woodland Park, and Woodmoor areas.
