Denver has historically been an extremely strong market & one of the first to rebound in hard times, as in after the 2008 market crash. The Federal Housing Finance Authority (FHFA) has measured Home Price Indices nationwide since 1986. Over the last 33 years, the average price appreciation for a home in Denver is 5.5%.That includes ALL market downturns. When you own real estate, you have an asset that appreciates over time! Colorado’s real estate market is amongst the strongest and safest in the country, with home price appreciation of 395% in Colorado since 1991 (2nd highest in the nation, behind Washington DC).
