Denver Ranked #3 Most Competitive Housing Market in US

Richmond American Homes

According to a recent study released by Lendingtree.com, the Denver housing market comes in as the #3 most competitive market in the US.  The study was based on 1.5 million mortgage loan requests through Lending Tree marketplace and used the following criteria; number of buyers who were pre-approved prior to looking for a house, average down payments and the number of buyers that had a credit score of 680 or higher. 

Competition in the Denver market is driven by low inventory and rising home prices.  However, coming into the market with a preapproved mortgage, a healthy down payment and a strong credit score will better your chances.  Many people are choosing to build a new home versus a resale home in order to buy their dream home.  Below is a list of the top 20 home builders in the Denver Metro area, (list provided by the Denver Business Journal, 2017-2018 Book of Lists).
