The properties for sale in the Denver Metro Area are moving faster under $250k. This is due to the buyer tax credit. It is causing a surge of buyers to step out and buy their first home. This surge was similar during last year in the same price range under $250k. If you want to get the $8000 tax credit the deadline is that you must be under contract before April 30, 2010 and close by June 30, 2010.
