Colorado is officially in the fall season with leaves changing and colder nights so naturally the question of what is going to happen to the Denver Real Estate Market as we head into fall is starting to come up.

The average sold price for a single family home in August was $363,625, down one percent from last month, but up 11 percent year over year. The average price for a single family detached home was $405,863 in August, while a condo/townhome saw an average sale price of $257,048.
