The median price for a home in the United States is up nearly 20% year-over-year, driving many hopeful buyers to the sidelines and inflating rental prices.
Zoom in: The Denver housing market has so far maintained its momentum through the cold-weather months, with the average price for a detached home topping out at more than $700,000, per the January trends report from the Denver Metro Association of Realtors.

This week’s hot homes range from $550,000 to more than $25 million — the most expensive listing currently on the market in the Front Range.
