Today in Denver Real Estate 11.20.14

  How's the Denver market? Glad you asked!   Denver's weather proved that it is indeed November last week, but the real estate market seems to still be enjoying some of the summer sun.  Last summer, the Mile High City saw record home prices, "days on the market" measured in hours on the market, and bidding wars became all too common. While August and September brought an ease to the frantic pace, demand remains high. Many buyers, unable to compete with cash offers, continue to drive sales. October also saw a significant drop in available inventory.   "The 8,041 unsold homes on the Denver-area market last month marks the fewest listed homes on record for any October, according to an analysis of Metrolist data," reported…

Homegrowngrown Jenna: Why Curtis Park/ Five Points is the Neighborhood to Watch

Why Curtis Park/ Five Points is the Neighborhood to Watch

As a realtor (and general Denver enthusiast), I spend a loooot of time researching, chatting, and learning about up and coming developments in Denver.  One of the best parts of my job is working with investors to find the next "big" area of the city.  

One of the main ways I get a feel for transitioning neighborhoods is by following restaurant trends.  Where are the new restaurants going?  Where are the new co-working spaces?  Where are there new breweries and wineries opening up?  Where are the hip kids hangin'? :)  People are always going to want to live where things are happening.

The RiNo area is one of the neighborhoods that excites me the most right now in Denver.  Tons of

How's the Denver Market? Glad you asked!

With a new record low temperature on the books for yesterday, the market remains very active. While the frenzy of last summer has subsided, many indicators still reflect a strong market. According to a recent report from Land Title Guarantee Co, in the month of October when available inventory sharply dropped again, 3,188 Single Family Detached (SFD) homes units sold, up 1.2% from prior year. Their report, which only covers the 7 counties in the Denver area, also found the average sold price price on SFD’s was up 9.7% from prior year ($361,923 for this year). They also noted, "36.6% of sold transactions (in Oct) went under contract in 7 days or less, and 48.6% sold for at or over

How's the Denver market? Glad you asked!

The demand continues to offer seller's an advantage in the Denver market. "Low inventory, combined with rising prices, supported a strong seller’s market in most areas of Colorado during the third quarter of 2014 compared with the third quarter of 2013, according to a report released on Thursday by the Colorado Association of Realtors." With a sharp decline in the available inventory and lowering vacancy rates in apartments, many potential buyers are still struggling to find the homes they are looking for. The Denver Post reported yesterday that, "the inventory of homes for sale in metro Denver was down 10 percent in October from September."

“With inventory levels remaining tight in

A Checklist for Winterizing and Weatherproofing Your Home

Monday, November 3rd, 2014 at 3:42pm. 774 Views, 0 Comments.

It's that time of year and RealEstate.com is looking out for us with a complete checklist for winterizing and weatherproofing our homes.  Take a look at what they have to say...

(Source: RealEstate.com)

There’s no doubt about it – winter is coming. Freezing temperatures, cold air, ice and snow make the warmth inside your house cozy and inviting. At least, that is, when your house is up to the task.

Winterizing your house isn’t only about staying warm, however. Winter is notorious for busted pipes, invading pests or furnaces that suddenly fail to function, for instance, but winterizing your home helps prevent such unexpected surprises. Additionally, a house that isn’t winterized will consume more energy, and energy costs continue to rise

How's the Denver market? Glad you asked!

With Halloween tomorrow and autumn in the air, the Denver market is still buzzing as if it is summer time. Though the market has "cooled" by some standards (or comparisons), when considering buying or selling right now, there are strong indicators the market is still very hot. A recent Denver Post article on the slowing of price increases reported, "Denver's figures were much higher (than the national trend). In the 12-month period that ended Sept. 30, home appreciation increased 11.3 percent, up from 10.4 percent in the year before… home appreciation is expected to slow in Denver, growing just 3.8 percent in the coming year."

After a summer of record price gains and historic low
