Here is the 4th Quarter '09 Denver neighborhood price change map. Not only does it show you average home price changes from the most recent 12 months to the previous 12 months (per neighborhood), along with the average days on market per neighborhood, it also shows you the number of solds, number of active short sales(which can significantly drive down average sold prices), and months of inventory per neighborhood. A good measure for months of inventory is 6 months: below 6 months usually means seller's have the advantage (less inventory, more competition), and above 6 months usually means a buyer's market (more inventory, more leverage for the buyer). Notice that many of the neighborhoods are below 6 months of inventory, meaning a SELLER'S, not buyer's, market.
