The Denver metro real estate market is a bit frenzied right now, and we are seeing some interesting happenings.


My buyer sent me an email once they got notice of a new listing, and wanted to set a showing right away. After looking at the listing, I noticed all three dates - Active, Pending, and Closed were all the same date. 


I explained to the buyers that this does happen on occasion, and must have been a transaction between parties outside of MLS.   Maybe the buyer and seller knew each other, or the tenant bought the home.   Maybe the agents were friends and shared an upcoming listing.   One will never know, as in MLS it states -- for informational purposes only.
