The Specs:

Address: 377 Monarch St, Louisville, CO 80027

Price: $378,900

Original List Date: 09/17/2014

Total Square Feet: 1,296

Bedrooms: 3

Bathrooms: 2

Location: Louisville North

 

The Scoop:

This home has been on the market since early May but was just re-listed with a different agent at a slightly higher price. When this home came on the market in May, it received an offer right away, sight unseen, however that offer was terminated at inspection. Another offer was received about 2 weeks afterward and this time the Buyer’s financing didn’t come through.

 

This home is on a quiet street with mature trees and larger yards and would be great for a starter home (couple) or small family. This home could definitely use a bit of updating but has lots of potential and is one of the least expensive homes in Louisville at this time.

 

I believe this home to be somewhat overpriced at $378,900. 662 Sunnyside St closed earlier this month (3 bed, 2 bath, 1,296 sq ft tri-level after 81 days on the market) at $369,500. Sunnyside showed very nicely.  377 Monarch should sell in the next few weeks but remember, it is not a new listing.

 

The main thing I would have suggested to the Seller would be removal of the kitchen wallpaper. Staging would likely help as well as many have trouble envisioning a dining area in this floor plan.

September Market Update for Clover Basin/SW Longmont

Follow us on Facebook at Clover Basin Pulse!

 

As your local 8z REALTOR and market expert, it is my pleasure to offer you this current market update in the southwest neighborhoods of Longmont including Clover CreekNelson ParkWillow Creek,SchlagelMeadowviewSomerset Meadows, and Summerlin. Stay tuned each month as I present updated information for this market.

 

If we look outside of our neighborhood at a broader spectrum along the front range, it appears that the market is starting to even out. But, if we just focus in our little corner here in SW Longmont… WOW! That is the only word that comes to mind! 11 out of 12 houses are under contract for the month of August. WOW! Can you think of a better word?

 

And, to add to the amazement, if we consider that the one house that is not under contract has actually been on the market since before August and the only reason it appears here in August is because it took a price reduction… that is 11 out of 11!!

The number of listings sold this August was 25% less than last year.

The number of listings sold this August was 25% less than last year.

When we compare what is happening in our market right now (11 out of 12 homes under contract in August) and then compare the sold stats to last year (down 25%), this basically comes down to inventory. There just are not as many houses on the market to buy!

 

I think fall is a good time to list a home. The frenzy of summer has slowed down, the temperatures are not as hot, and everything is set a a pleasant pace. And the buyers that were not so caught up in the summer frenzy and school starting and who want to chose a house for all the right reasons, are now out in force looking for their new home!

 

Please call me if you need any assistance in the Southwest Longmont area. I’d be more than happy to discuss the current market’s activity, show homes from the current inventory and help you with any of your real estate needs in the neighborhood.

September 2014 Market Update for Spring Canyon

As your local 8z REALTOR and market expert, it is my pleasure to bring you this monthly update for Fort Collin’s Spring Canyon community, including the Quail Hollow/RidgeFox CreekHampshire PondSilver OaksSpringfield, Pine Ridge Estates, Taft CanyonFox HillsWildflower and Rockview neighborhoods. Tune in each month for updated information about one of life’s biggest investments: your home. Or, even better, have it delivered right to your Inbox:

The month of August was pretty active in the Spring Canyon neighborhoods, even as people geared up for end of summer and back to school. Speaking of school, our new Global Village Academy has a colorful and active presence now after its opening day for K-12 kids on Sept 2nd. Welcome to the community, GVA! Their website says that children have a choice to learn the 2nd language of Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, French or German, and that teachers are from all over the world. It will be fun to see what the school brings to our west side community!

 

Active Listings

 

There are 6 active listings right now with a couple that have been sitting for a while – 2800 Blue Leaf Dr  is priced at $359,000 in Quail Hollow and as I’ve reported before, needs cosmetic work. The current price is $128 per square foot, which is average for an updated QH home, but may still be high for this listing. 2192 Water Blossom is a nicely located condo in Hampshire Pond. It’s surprising that this is still available at $217,000 but this is an example of our market slowing a bit – even for investors. 3923 Windom @ $218,900 and 2212 Silver Trails @ $295,000 are both at price points that should move quickly. There are two listings on Marshwood in Hampshire Pond – one brand new 5 bedroomrm ranch today at 2230 Marshwood. I will review this soon and it looks like a good buy at $299,777, only $100 per square foot! The second is 2343 Marshwood at $365,000 or $113 per sq ft.

 

The average days on market for homes sold in August was 48 days.

Sold

 

3750 Dalton Dr in Springfield sold for $187,000  with 3 bedrooms, 1 bath and 1012 sq ft after 54 days on the market.

 

3908 Windom St in Springfield sold for $207,500 ($189 per sq ft) with 3 beds, 1 bath and 1100 square feet after 64 days on market.

 

2155 Bronson St in Silver Oaks, a duplex, sold for $249,900 ($91 per sq ft) with 2 beds, 2 baths and 2760 square feet after 41 days on market.

 

2630 Willow Fern Way in Hampshire Pond sold for $342,600 ($82 per sq ft) with 4 beds, 4 baths and 3038 square feet after 8 days on the market.

 

2901 Teal Eye Ct in Quail Hollow sold for $372,500 ($149 per sq ft) with 3 beds, 3 baths and 2501 square feet after 55 days on market.

 

2601 Dumire Ct in Quail Hollow sold for $395,000 ($118 per sq ft) with  5 beds, 4 baths and 3354 square feet after 41 days on market.

 

2810 Kit Fox Rd in Fox Hills sold for $470,000 ($119 per sq ft) with 4 beds, 4 baths and 3934 square feet after 35 days on market.

 

3921 Highlands West Dr in Highland Hills sold for $495,000 ($129 per sq ft) with 5 beds, 4 baths and 3835 square feet after 66 days on market.

 

During the month of August in 2013 there were 7 listings sold in our market for a total of $2,183,505 and an average sales price of $312,000 after 43 days on the market. Our average sales price was $346,400 this August, which represents a 10% increase in sold home prices in the year for the Spring Canyon market – that is respectable!

 

We are still in a sellers’ market, but as we see from lingering listings, the homes need to be in good condition to attract buyers, or compensate the buyer or investor who doesn’t mind putting in sweat equity.

 

With word of the interest rates potentially increasing, now is an outstanding time to get your home on the market and look for a replacement home. We always slow in the winter months, but this creates opportunities for the homes on the market to stand out to prospective buyers if presented well.

 

Please call me if you need any assistance in the Fort Collins area. I’d be more than happy to discuss the current market’s activity, show homes from the current inventory and help you with any of your real estate needs in the community.

Field report on 4355 Yarrow Lane, Johnstown



4355 Yarrow Lane, Johnstown, CO, United States

Gorgeous 4 bed ranch in Thompson Crossings with a full finished basement. The home is spacious and includes all the upgrades; granite, stainless, hardwood galore etc. The back of the house has an attached deck that has no access to the backyard. In my opinion, this design was not well thought out.
