In Denver’s hot real estate market, paying over list price is one way that people try to secure the home of their dreams.

Last week, more than 44 percent of the people who bought a home paid more than its asking price. The differences ranged from $100 extra to a full $60,000 more.

Here are the top five overbids of the last week.
