It's winter, inventory is naturally low.
Sounds like a good panic buy strategy!

True. Most people wait until grass is green to put their home on the market.

Jeez, you'd think with all the homebuilding, they'd be more than satisfying demand, but I guess not. It's pretty baffling. Surely all these can't just be people working in Denver and living down here.

"At the same time, the inventory of homes listed for sale - especially in lower price ranges - has fallen to a more than 20-year low and helped propel prices. Countywide, the median price - or midpoint - increased to $240,000 in the first quarter, a 5.3 percent gain over the same period last year."

We had planned to retire to Co Springs soon to be near family but the house prices are escalating beyond our price range. I would bet that a healthy percentage of buyers are investors/flippers. We won't buy a flipped house - too much lipstick on a pig going on to trust the integrity of the work.
