 A Luxury Home can be identified differently in cities across the country, but in Denver, my Luxury blog posts will report on detached single-family homes listed in the Denver metro area for over $1 million.   Some have mountain and/or city views, some properties back to a golf course, or have water views all to compliment one's lifestyle.  (however, we don't have much water)  Some are updated with products from around the world, and some have expansive square footage or on acreage.     Whatever a Buyer is looking for, most likely if you have over $1 million, you can find it in Denver or in the surrounding suburbs.     Here is how the luxury market fared for the month of June 2021Total sales - 563 homes ranging from $1,000,000 to $9,000,000 (last month was 428 homes, 2020 was 225)Averag...

Greenfield is located in Centennial, with some of this neighborhood in the City of Aurora.    It is located off Arapahoe Road & Picadilly in the South part of the Metro Denver area.   It is located in Cherry Creek School District, which is just one reason this neighborhood is popular! I like to stay on top of the statistics for the community, and nice to review the numbers every quarter.   Most months there are just one or two sales.  For the month of June, there were three  sales.    Usually only later in the week do we see active listings, but there is one listed today and two pending.  For this size of the neighborhood, we don't usually see many homes go up for sale in Greenfield or Greenfield Estates.    Here is how June 2021 fared: 3 properties sold priced from $700,000 to $875,000...

 The Town of Larkspur is located 40 miles south of Denver and West of I-25.   The town was incorporated in 1979 and today is known for the Renaissance Festival held every year in Larkspur and the Yogi Bear's Jellystone Campground.   Most homes in Larkspur are on lots of one acre or more and surrounded by trees.   You will see lots of wildlife - deer, mountain lions, bears (brown & black), fox, coyotes and lots of birds.  Going to the grocery store will require a trip to Castle Rock, and depending on where in the town you live, it could be 15 minutes.   There isn't much in the "town", but a gas station, post office, three restaurants, and of course two golf courses with restaurants.   Bear Dance Golf Course is closer to I-25, and Perry Park Golf Course is on the West side of town. The po...

 The lenders always remind Buyers not to buy items prior to closing or change their credit situation, but the same can be said for the Seller.    Our Sellers are seeing HUGE bottom lines from the equity increases over the last few years. Even though a Seller knows they will see a giant wire transfer in 30 days, don't go on a spending spree and put everything on credit, thinking you will pay it off when the property closes.    Even if a transaction looks smooth, there can be last-minute snafus that can delay or eliminate a closing.   Some items that derail a transaction -  Big-ticket inspection items - roof, sewer, furnace that the Seller was not aware had issues.The appraisal may come in low, and the buyer is not willing to bridge the gap.Buyers may have items in their credit show up an...
