Real estate inventory recovery is starting to pick up some speed in Colorado and across many areas of the country.  Industry experts assert there is still a shortage – just less of it.  In order to say that real estate inventory is at a “normal level” there would need to be 6 months of real estate inventory available. There is still considerably less than that considering current demand.  Figures show that inventory numbers are up nationwide for the 5th months in a row and quickly returning to the level it had risen to in September, 2012 before many markets began exploding sales paces.
