#TheJonesDistrict @CentennialGov #IKEA

Jones DistrictA number of you have been asking about all the vacant land to the north of IKEA along the I-25 corridor.  Here’s what we have so far:

“The Jones District is a 42-acre area west of I-25 between IKEA and the Dry Creek light rail station. The name comes from the late property owner and cable television pioneer, Glenn Jones, who envisioned a dynamic, mixed-use area, similar to The Streets at SouthGlenn, featuring a network of walkable blocks, active streets, and public gathering spaces such as plazas. Currently, The Jones District has one new building, a 306-unit luxury apartment building named The Glenn, while the remaining 36 acres is vacant, undeveloped land.” 

Additionally, since this development site falls in Centennial, Colorado, they have provided a link to current and upcoming decisions being made.  Click Here

This live presentation on the Centennial Website is very interesting and offers a wealth of information.  Click Here

I’ll do my best to keep you posted on anything I hear, and please do the same on your end too!

Thank you…tc

#MondayMarketUpdate #EarthDay #DenverMarketWatch @MyTownCryer

Good Morning Earthlings!

Earth Day 2019We hope your weekend was the best.  Did you know today is Earth Day?  According to Wikipedia…

Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day now includes events in more than 193 countries,[1] which are coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.[2]

On Earth Day 2016, the landmark Paris Agreement was signed by the United States, China, and some 120 other countries.[3][4][5] This signing satisfied a key requirement for the entry into force of the historic draft climate protection treaty adopted by consensus of the 195 nations present at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.

In 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco, peace activist John McConnell proposed a day to honor the Earth and the concept of peace, to first be celebrated on March 21, 1970, the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. This day of nature’s equipoise was later sanctioned in a proclamation written by McConnell and signed by Secretary General U Thant at the United Nations. A month later a separate Earth Day was founded by United States Senator Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in first held on April 22, 1970. Nelson was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom award in recognition of his work.[6] While this April 22 Earth Day was focused on the United States, an organization launched by Denis Hayes, who was the original national coordinator in 1970, took it international in 1990 and organized events in 141 nations.[7][8]

Numerous communities celebrate Earth Week, an entire week of activities focused on the environmental issues that the world faces. In 2017, the March for Science occurred on Earth Day (April 22, 2017) and was followed by the People’s Climate Mobilization (April 29, 2017).

Over the last 49 years, new construction has improved and homes are more efficient.  Automobile Manufacturers have provided us with more efficient and longer last cars and trucks.  The cost of renewable energy sources has improved dramatically, and on my recent road trip, wind turbines were everywhere!  As Sonny and Cher used to sing, “The Beat Goes On”…

Long story short, watch this YouTube Video from a little less than one year ago. 

The World is not perfect, but it is better than it was, and with a little effort, we can all be a little better moving forward too!

SO, what’s with the Denver Residential Market this week according to the MLS?

New Listing (1300) This is a nice number.
Back On Market (264)
Price Increase (107)
Price Decrease (834) Let’s keep an eye on this one…
Under Contract (1555) This is another strong week!
Withdrawn (111)
Leased (35)
Sold (1078) As we creep over 1,000 per week, demand is good!
Expired (183)

Once again, as Sonny and Cher would say, “The beat goes on…”, and so does our market.  No apocalyptic change is readily apparent.  Sellers want to sell, Buyers want to buy.  Anecdotally, one of our listings received 3 written offers this weekend.  This is proof, solid communication between Broker and Seller obtains the best results, in the shortest period of time with the least amount of hassle. 

So, if you are making a plan to move, buy or both, let’s sit down, talk a while and make a cohesive plan making your future so bright, you’ll need sunglasses!

Please call, 303-773-3399 and ask for Dee or Tom…tc

Quiz: Which listing features fetch the highest price?

#MondayMarketUpdate @MyTownCryer #TwoLaneTexas #SpringHasSprung

Good Morning Everyone!

Three PointsThere is no question, we have hit the ground running into another spring selling/buying season.  Buyers like bears awakening from hibernation have returned to the market again.  Sellers are making those difficult “what’s next” decisions, and we are ready for you!

As you can see below from this weeks MLS data, New Listings, Under Contracts and Closings continue their March (April) into the new season with great confidence.  Let’s take a look.

New Listing (1463) Not as strong as last week, but still strong.
Back On Market (242)
Price Increase (113)
Price Decrease (863)  Keep an eye on this, sellers routinely over price coming into the spring season.  “Irrational Exuberance”
Under Contract (1634) Almost competitive with last week.  Buyers are out in full force!
Withdrawn (131) I like when this number is low…
Leased (38)
Sold (988) Very comparable with last week, but still not up full season strength.
Expired (159)

Let’s put all this in perspective for you.  If we are closing 1,000/week and 4 weeks in a month, this gives us about 45 days supply with current inventory around 6,000 active listings.  The front page story is simple, the right price, condition and location, you can still sell your Denver house in about 23 days…

Recently, I engineered my spring trip.  CoMexTexOk on two lane and dirt roads as much as possible.  I enjoyed circumnavigating what was once the center of the “Dust Bowl”.  I’m witness to a Wind Energy Business that is booming, a cattle industry that is still “calving” in spring, a flourishing agra-business and petro-dollars still coming out of the ground.  From an eyewitness account, I observed brand new pickups around every corner, shinny new farm implements, active drilling, thousands and thousands of four legged friends getting ready for the grill, and last but not least, in these “4 corners”, wind energy is taking advantage of weather conditions conducive to spinning those three blades!  “Fly-Over Country” is doing quite well by my observation.

We sell houses 12 months a year, but this time of year enjoys more closings and more new listings, than any other quarter.  Stop by the office and I’ll show you the scoop first hand and in person!  “Keep on truckin’….”

#MondayMarketUpdate @MyTownCryer #DenverMarketWatch #SellingSeason

Hi-De-Ho Neighbors!

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1616Can you see it?  Can you feel it?  It IS officially selling season!

As you can see below, New Listings, Under Contracts and Sold (Closings) are all up from last week.  The first two substantially.  So, it is officially Selling (Buying) Season.  Historically, these next 3-4 months yield the largest number of closings than any other season of the year.  Follow along with last week’s MLS Data:

New Listing (1586) This is a big week!  Buyers will have a growing inventory from which to choose!  
Back On Market (234)
Price Increase (138)
Price Decrease (884) This is a little disconcerting.  Sellers coming out too strong, then having to retrench.  Not a wise strategy.
Under Contract (1584) WOW!  This is a big week by any standard!
Withdrawn (120)
Leased (39)
Sold (1087) As this number creeps up each week, we should look for 1,200 next week…
Expired (282)

As we move deeper into the year, there is never a bad time to plan.  We will be spending time with two couples this month who aren’t planning a move for at least a year, but by reviewing their situations, we are able to provide a plan for readiness.

Take a look at this new listing of ours:  Sara Gulch

Take a look at this new listing of ours: 1823 Hooker Street #1

And, take a look at this one with an improved price and spring updates:  641 Ruby Trust Way

Lastly, we have a number of off market listings right now coming up over the next few months.  Keep in touch, maybe one of them might be just right for you…tc

@MyTownCryer #MondayMarketUpdate #DenverMarketWatch #AprilFools

rubyGood Morning Denver!

Is seems almost every week, Dee or/and I are in some sort of educational session.  This week, Dee came back to the office with a new expression.  David Mandarich of Richmond Homes/MDC fame was in attendance at our weekly sales meeting.  During this meeting, Mr Mandarich referred to all the new apartments in Denver as “Incubators for future homeowners”.  We are certain too, the future of homeownership will have a footprint in one of today’s new apartment complexes.  Sooner or later, kids, pets and hobbies attract almost every household (65%) into homeownership.

With all this being said, “The future’s so bright, we will all need sunglasses!”

New Listing (1175)  I would expect this number to be larger.
Back On Market (204)
Price Increase (87)
Price Decrease (724)  I’m guessing a few sellers were too bold in pricing!
Under Contract (1447) Wow!  These are midseason numbers!
Withdrawn (120)
Leased (37)
Sold (1281)  Here too, we are seeing quite strong seasonal growth.
Expired (259)

So, not a bad week.  With roughly 8,000 MLS active listings, this data is telling us there is less than 2 months supply going into the spring season.

Remember, “Failure to plan is a plan for failure”.  Give a call and let’s discuss your plan.  We can’t wait to hear all about it…tc
