Hot one day, cold the next — much like Denver weather, Denver real estate is making a turbulent transition into fall.

Two weeks ago, 44 percent of people paid over asking price for their home. Last week, a much lower share — 31 percent of people who bought a house paid more than asking price.

The differences ranged from $1 extra to a full $30,000 more.

Here are the top five overbids of the last week, with one quick detour:
