Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Over the past few months, we've documented Denver's red-hot housing market and noted that many properties are selling way above list price.

But real estate sales in Colorado as a whole are scorching as well.

FindTheBest.com has compiled facts and figures about how quickly properties sell after they're listed, and Colorado definitely made the cut.

Count down the photo-illustrated top ten states below, complete with FindTheBest graphics and information about listing-to-sale times and the best months in each place to put properties on the block.

That's followed by a heat map of all the states for which data is available. More information is available with just a click.
