Living in Colorado

 

Denver is growing at an extremely rapid pace,

with a house only being on the market for 26 days before selling at an average price of $496,382, according to July's market report.

This goes to ask, how many more homes will be available? The Denver-area developers are responding to this situation by creating smaller, denser, and taller apartments and homes that young adults and first-time buyers may not necessarily describe as affordable but at least attainable.

But the developers are meeting resistance on many fronts and warn that creative solutions are needed to allow people of average means to own property so Denver doesn’t become a city dominated by transitory apartment dwellers and the affluent.

If money could talk and it had opinions about Denver real estate, here’s what it would tell you about the hottest neighborhoods in the city right now.

In this Chart of the Week, Denverite examined how median home prices in each neighborhood have changed from 2016 to 2017 so far. 

First, Denver’s southern neighborhoods have seen the biggest increase in home sale prices so far this year. In 2017 so far, Platt Park, University Park, and Hampden all had median sold home price increases of over 20 percent when compared to last year.

The Denver Metro Area Housing Market is Showing Some Signs of Cooling

Last month, several numbers dipped into the negatives. While it is expected to see numbers decrease, even in a “hot market,” what is considered normal seasonal change and what is not?

Why are Most Millennials becoming Homeowners?

 

When millennials buy houses, it’s for an unexpected reason.

According to a new study by Harris Poll, commissioned by SunTrust Mortgage, one of the top reasons millennials—here defined as those between the ages of 18 and 36—choose to settle down is due to their dogs. That’s right: Thirty three percent of participants cited the need for more space for their furry friends as the leading factor behind purchasing a house. That number may fall behind their own need for more space (66 percent), and the desire to build equity (36 percent), but it’s surprisingly ahead of both marriage (25 percent), and the birth of a child (19 percent).

You know, priorities.
