Colorado Springs' single-family housing market has improved greatly from the depths of the recession, but it's nowhere near as hot as Denver.
A national housing report for June by realtor.com shows that Denver homes spent an average of 21 days on the market before selling -- the fastest pace for home sales among 130 metropolitan areas across the country.
Colorado Springs' homes sold in an average of 63 days, putting the Springs in a tie for 23rd fastest in terms of home sales.
When it comes to popularity, Colorado Springs ranked 72nd in June in terms of the number of times that visitors came to the realtor.com website and searched for real estate. Chicago was No. 1.
