Today in the Calculated Risk Real Estate newsletter: 1st look at local housing markets in June, sales plummeted

An excerpt from the letter:

From the Denver Metro Association of Realtors® (DMAR): Real Estate Market Trend Report DMAR

As end-of-month active inventories soar, the Denver Metro has set a new record for the average attached property price of $504,193. At the end of June 2021, there were 3,122 properties on the Denver Metro market. This amount has now almost doubled in a year and there are currently 6,057 properties on the market. … “The increase in supply will ultimately affect prices, MLS days, and buyer-seller relationships that have negatively impacted buyer purchasing power,” commented Andrew Abrams, Chairman of the DMAR and Metro Denver Realtor® Market Trends Committee. “The stock market, inflation and cryptocurrencies have been hit hard over the past few months. Housing will eventually become a victim for the economy as a whole, but how much remains to be seen. It is quite realistic to see MLS days, currently at an all-time low of four, increase in the coming months.”
