Event Details

DESCRIPTION: Every real estate agent is facing serious questions and concerns from consumers about the health of the Denver real estate market. Questions such as:

  • Is the Denver real estate market in a bubble?
  • Will our real estate market crash again like it did in 2007 and 2008?
  • How much higher will prices rise?
  • Why are prices rising so fast?
  • Should we wait to buy until after the market cools off?
  • When will this crazy market change back to normal?

In this class we will answer these questions and concerns from consumers in several ways—

  • By defining what is a bubble?
  • Why many people believe we have a bubble today and are they wrong?
  • A look back to our real estate and mortgage markets from the early 2000’s and how we created a bubble back then.
  • A review of the 3 primary factors that drive demand for housing and the 3 secondary factors that are driving demand for housing.
  • We review the long-term drop in existing home inventory and what is causing this big drop.
  • Why the supply of new homes for sale has shrank by over 50% in the last 10 years.
  • How government regulation is making the supply of new homes for sale far worse.
  • Review of the Law of Supply and Demand and how 1 or more factors on both sides need to change for us to have a balanced market.
  • Should Millennials buy a traditional “starter” home or wait to buy a “trophy” home?
  • A long-term look at home price appreciation in Denver which will give consumers a new perspective on our recent price increases.
  • Ending with what could go wrong or could 2008 happen again?
  • A final review of the Price-Rent Ratio that I have used since 2011 with consumers.
