The upper end of the luxury market continued to show strength as well with 16 sales over $2 million in June, up from nine multi-million-dollar sales a year ago and 14 the previous month.

Two other key market indicators improved as well with homes selling faster on average and sellers receiving a higher percentage of their asking price compared to a year ago.

“The luxury market in the Denver metro area continues to move ahead, although not quite at the feverish pace we saw earlier in the spring,” said Chris Mygatt, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.

“Gradually we’re seeing a little more inventory coming on the market and while we’re still below normal, the new listings are helping to bring the pendulum between supply and demand back in balance a bit more.”

The Kentwood Co. earlier released its own report on luxury homes.
