Once again this year, there has been a drought declared, and the City of Aurora is calling for two days a week of watering effective May 1st, 2023. Although the mountains have had an excessive amount of snow, that does not always equate to enough water for the City's use.    The snow needs to continue, and the City of Denver hasn't seen much in the last few weeks. Per the City of Aurora - "Due to the intensity of the worst drought the arid west has seen in 1200 years, our reservoirs will soon be below 50% full.   Getting them back to a sustainable level will take some time and some very wet winters.  It may be challenging, but everyone can do their part to reduce their water use, starting with a two-day-a-week watering restriction based on your address." I am definitely ready for spring...

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 month, or at least every quarter.   Most months there are just one or two sales.   For  November, there was only one sale and in December, there was none.   For this size of the neighborhood, we don't usually see many homes go up for sale in Greenfield or Greenfield Estates.    Here's what happened in Greenfield & Greenfield Estates in February 2023 -Total Sales - 1 home sold for $619,000Days on Market - 4 daysL...
