Littleton Real Estate Market Report

The Littleton Real Estate Market Report for October shows great signs of continued improvement.  The real estate data for the month is up significantly in the average sold price with just under 15% gain from last year!

Taking a look at the year to date figures, we can see that the homes under contract and sold are both up over 30% while the days on market have slid down just about 30% as well.  Wonderful news for the sellers in the Littleton real estate market.  Buyers will need to compete for the few listings available in today’s market.  Inventory levels are down and active listings in Littleton are down just about 42% from the same time last year.

The good news for buyers is the continued low interest rates.  With mortgage rates this low, it makes it easier to qualify and of course, your money can go a lot further each month with less to pay towards interest.

Overall, Littleton is in a seller’s real estate market.  With low inventory and rising values, I think we have seen the bottom of the market come and go already.  Get ready for a great 2013.

If you would like help selling or purchasing a home or investment in Littleton, please get in touch.  I would love to talk.

Labor Day Weekend Bike Ride Through Littleton CO

This labor day weekend in Denver is just about perfect!  The sun is shining, no clouds, and finally we are in the 70’s and not the upper 90’s.  What a great time to get outside and take a bike ride.  This morning I went with both of my kids on a ride along the South Platte River and into Old Town Littleton.  It was great!

Hard to tell from this picture, but these are giant pumpkins in a huge pumpkin patch along the South Platte Trail in the Hudson Garden’s Pumpkin Patch!

Of course, you can always stop for a refreshing coffee or cold drink at the coffee shop along the South Platte Trail just on the back side of Hudson Gardens.

So whatever you decided to do this Labor Day weekend, I really hope it was fun and relaxing.  Now it’s time to enjoy the fall here in Colorado.  I can’t wait to start to see all the fall colors, but I will miss the summer, that’s for sure.

 

Denver Real Estate Market Report By Zip Code | South Suburbs | July 2011

 Denver Zip Code Real Estate Report July 2011Well we’re into the second half of the year already so let’s look at July’s figures.  I see a lot of RED!  Understandably, the inventory levels are less than in previous years but let’s not get caught up in all of that.  Let’s look at what we have right now.  To me it looks pretty good.

Sellers in most South Denver real estate zip codes are looking at fairly low months of inventory.  Sellers in areas such as Parker, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree and Englewood all enjoy a seller’s real estate market.  Like I always say however, an overpriced home in less than good condition will struggle to sell in any market.  So sellers need to stay focused on price and condition.

Buyers never fear!  There is still enough inventory out there for you to find the perfect home.  Take advantage now of these all time low rates which improve your buying power tremendously based on mortgage qualification and monthly payments.  If you find the home you like, act on it.  It is a great time to buy, really.

If you are looking to buy your next home or maybe sell your current home, please contact me and let’s see how I can help.  I’m active in the market and stay current on real estate values and trends.

Denver Real Estate Market Report By Zip Code | South Suburbs | June 2011

June 2011 real estate data by zip code south Denver Metro

We are a bit more than halfway through the year already so let’s take a look at June’s statistics for the midyear.  Most zip codes for the south metro Denver area remain  pretty steady as far as sales and inventory levels.  In fact, most are pretty good  for the market with most zip codes staying “red”, which indicates a fairly hot market for sellers.

Parker and Castle Rock both have large numbers of active inventory and Parker continues to show great activity in it’s 80134 zip code!  Highlands Ranch reflects a seller’s market as well as many of the zip codes just north, including Englewood, Centennial and Greenwood Village along with others.

If you are a seller in one of these South Metro Denver zip codes, remain competitive on price, condition and depending on your price range, you may need to remain patient.  Even though it is a stable market according to statistics, the hottest prices remain between $200-$500k.

Buyers, stay active and engaged in the market. If you are ready to buy, then don’t believe the inventory will remain on the market forever and there is an overabundance of choices.  As you can see, in most areas inventory is to the seller’s advantage and the best homes continue to sell quick.

The Denver Real Estate market is pretty good. If you would like a more detailed look at your own home’s value or if you are looking to buy, please contact me I would love to help.

Denver Real Estate Market Report By Zip Code | South Suburbs | May 2011

Denver Homes Sales & Real Estate Statistics

May continued the trend of a fairly strong homes seller’s market this year, at least as far as inventory levels go. Looking at the chart, there is still a lot of red!  Seller’s need to take advantage of the season, keep the curb appeal spruced up grass green and cut, fresh mulch and blooming flowers.

Buyers have fewer choices so don’t hesitate when you find the home you love. Especially anything priced under $200k, these homes are HOT! Take advantage of still great interest rates and start living your dream.

Denver Real Estate Market Report By Zip Code | South Suburbs | April 2011

 

April inventory levels remain positive in most areas. Not too much of an over supply in the market.  In fact, as you can see by all the red, most areas have relatively low levels of inventory.  There is a good amount of inventory out in Parker, which is the 80134 and 80138 zips, however also a lot of sales leaving the area in a pretty balanced market condition.

On average, days on market look to be a bit over 4 months for many areas which is consistent with the months of inventory in those areas.  What does this mean to sellers?  Lower inventory again this month is good.  However, patience is necessary for most, the showing activity is just not that brisk.  Also, be very competitive in price and condition.  With fewer homes competing for the home buyers, it becomes clear to those out in the market which homes are overpriced and which need more attention to condition details.  So keep it clean, well maintained and priced right and you should be fine.

Buyers need to act quicker if they have interest in a particular home. With less inventory and great interest rates, the home you like today another buyer may very well have seen and liked yesterday.  Now you find it under contract!

The Denver Real Estate market is pretty good. If you would like a more detailed look at your own home’s value or if you are looking to buy, please contact me I would love to help.
