Leading the Nation in Positive Equity

Oct 9, 2015


Denver’s housing market is leading the nation in a variety of categories.

Homes here sell faster than homes in any other market, the market leads the country in rising home prices, and the housing inventory here is as low as any other place in the country. In fact, according to a recent report by Zillow, Denver has 16.6 percent less homes for sale today than in 2014. Historic inventory is off by approximately 50%.

Now, however, Denver leads in another residential real estate category: the percentage of homes in foreclosure that have positive equity.

In a new report by RealtyTrac, the share of distressed properties in Denver with positive equity is 83.7 percent, which is a higher percentage than anywhere else in the country.

Nationally, the figure is 42.4 percent, and Colorado takes the lead at 72 percent.
