2016 is set to be another record-shattering year for Denver, Colorado.

And it’s no surprise as the US News called Denver the #1 place to live. 2,732 Denver home owners sold their home in the first quarter which is up 1% from last year’s numbers. Overall inventory has decreased slightly, and the number of new listings coming on the market is down 0.7 percent in Denver metro and up 2 percent in the City of Denver. Meanwhile, the number of listings sold have increased only 2.9 percent and 2.1 percent respectively.  These statistics are evidence of continued competitive, steady conditions in the marketplace.

As we approach another spring and summer frenzy, let’s take a look at some elite properties sold January through March. Here are the 10 most expensive homes sold on REColorado in the first quarter of 2016 for Denver and neighboring communities.
