10196 Deerfield St, Frederick: A Summit View Estates Review

The Specs:

Address:  10196 Deerfield St, Firestone, CO 80504

Listed at: $385,000

Bedrooms: 4

Bathrooms: 3

Total Square Feet: 4,114

Location: St. Vrain Estates

The Scoop:

What makes this property stand out is the classic looking architectural facade. With a main floor master this home could easily attract a broad spectrum of buyers from a couple, family to the empty nester since this ranch-style home offers 3 bedrooms on its main finished level.

 

Is this home a good value? Compared to the few ranch models that have sold to date in St. Vrain Ranch for 2014, the total price per square foot is in range with the others. I project this home is on the market upward of 60 days. To include, this section of St. Vrain Ranch is one of the more premium spots within the Subdivision with a close proximity to Harney Park

 

In regards to how the home shows, the first impression rooms have furniture oddly placed which I think detracts from being able to say “WOW”.  Changing the layout plus injecting staging in the first key rooms would assist in converting this property from dwelling to selling.

Address:  5129 Mt Arapahoe Circle, CO 80504

Listed at: $419,000

Bedrooms: 5

Bathrooms: 4

Total Square Feet: 4,541

Location: Summit View Estates

 

The Scoop:

Property is situated across the street from the central park. This west facing home includes mountain views. In addition buyers can enjoy a 3 season back porch for added versatility. The unique bonus is an apartment above the garage that fetches $825./mo. in rent. As an alternative the space could easily opt as a guest retreat, home office, studio, nanny’s loft and more!

 

Overall the home boasts great square footage.  Cars were parked right out front which made the initial curb appeal distracting, uninviting. Staging the home and painting out a few personal paint colors would help elevate appeal.

4433 Picadilly Ct, Fort Collins: A Taft Canyon Review

4433 Picadilly Ct was reviewed over the past few days in the Taft Canyon neighborhood in Fort Collins. Read below to find out more about 8z Real Estate’s take on the listing!

The Specs:

Address: 4433 Picadilly Ct, Fort Collins, CO 80526

Price: $489,900

Original List Date: 08/08/2014
Style: 1 Story/Ranch
Year Built: 1986
Total Square Feet: 3,810

Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 5
Location: Taft Canyon

 

The Scoop:

 

I was anxious to bring relocating buyers to this lovely home after I visited the owner for a market analysis. Owners want a larger home and have lovingly maintained and updated this one during their 4 year ownership. The floorplan is a wonderfully open ranch with a walk-out basement to enjoy the excellent foothills views from the expansive deck. There are fun yet tasteful colors throughout, and bit southwestern in feel, and warm and inviting.

 

The ranch plan with finished walk-out is a great home for empty nesters or people with older children who would love the spacious basement/rec area.  I showed my artist clients the home, and while they enjoyed the floorplan and the well maintained features, they preferred not to live that close to Taft Rd which is the primary downfall of this home.  It sits on a hill, with Taft below.  Traffic noise is an issue but the smaller backyard that backs to openspace is very private and easy to maintain.

 

The original price of $529,900 was too high, but after two price reductions and now at $489,900 I believe it is only a matter of time that a buyer will appreciate the fine finishes and privacy that this home has to offer.

3339 Tejon Street, Denver: A Lower Highlands Review

Address: 3339 Tejon St, Denver CO 80211

Price: $695,000

Original List Date: 06/20/13

Year Built: 1885
Total Square Feet: 2,026

Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 3

Location: Lower Highlands

 

The Scoop:

 

This home is located conveniently to all of the great restaurants, bars and retail in the Lower Highlands neighborhood.

 

This property has been on the market for Over 2 months. The original list price of 765,000 was well over fair market value. Now, at 695,000 the home is listed closer to where it should be, if not slightly overpriced. At the current list price, buyers will compare this home to properties with newer construction located on quieter streets. Price and the fact that it is located on a busy street are likely the two factors that have prevented this home from going under contract up until now.

 

This home shows very well. While the basement is a little musty, few other things about this home make it feel old. The sellers have tastefully chosen high quality finishes. Now that the price has been reduced, the right buyer has a better chance of finding this home.

Year Built: 2006
Total Square Feet: 2,788

Bedrooms: 3

Location: Lower Highlands

 

The Scoop:

 

Despite a 20k price drop, this home is still overpriced at its current list price. This home will likely sell closer to 645,000.

 
This home is clean, open and comfortable. The design is slightly kitschy, and the finishes, particularly in the upstairs hallway bathroom, are underwhelming. However, the bedrooms are all of good size, the backyard is quaint and private and two laundry locations provide options for convenience.

See this home in Arvada before it hits the MLS!

In this low inventory market, it’s always great to know about homes before they come on the market! The home below is currently available for sale in Arvada. It is not yet on the MLS, but will be soon! Please reach out to Dan Thomas for more information on the home at 303-349-9288.

 

5250 Independence Street, Arvada, CO 80002

$245,000 | 2,504 total sf | 5 beds | 2 bath | Single Family Home

1615707-1

Great opportunity in West Arvada. Nice ranch style home that is blocks from upcoming lightrail station. Home is on a corner lot with well maintained yards. Layout and square footage lends itself to an individual owner or large family. Some updates have been made and now waiting for next owner to make it their own. Being near Olde Town, shopping and I-70 makes it a prime location.

 

Bedrooms in basement are nonconforming.

This home is not yet in the MLS, but will be soon. Contact Dan Thomas at 303-349-9288 or dan@8z.com for more information. We welcome other agents! We Co-op!

Price: $675,000

Original List Date: 07/10/13

Year Built: 2006
Total Square Feet: 2,988

Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 3

Location: Lower Highlands

 

The Scoop:

 

This home actually shows better than it would seem from the MLS. The Interior is lighter and brighter than the photos suggest. The windows are strategically placed so that this home feels like a single-family residence with more privacy than a typical townhouse.

 
This home is best compared to its attached neighbor, which has almost the same floor plan but a very different style. This unit is the more modern of the two, with simpler, cleaner lines. Each unit has good sized bedrooms, great open spaces, and two laundry locations. The disappointing feature in each home is the finishes in each of the bathrooms. At this price point, buyers will expect something slightly higher end.

 

This property started at a list price of 725,000 and has been lowered twice to reach its current price of 675,000. I would predict that the home will sell closer to 650,000.

August Market Update: Castlewood Ranch

As your local 8z REALTOR and market expert, it is my pleasure to offer you this current market update in Castlewood Ranch. Stay tuned each month as I present updated information for this market.

 

 

The Castlewood Ranch continues to demand a strong market. Homes sell very quickly with multiple offers for prices Sellers are pround of. Everyone wants to live in Castlewood it seems.

 

In residential real estate, Castlewood and surrounding area continues to reflect strong demand, according to Metrolist, Colorado’s largest MLS and the provider of REcolorado.com.

 

Days on market, or the number of days a home takes to sell, dropped to 26 days (remember this is skewed for Castlewood since we have a couple of short sales the new home builders). The norm is a home goes on and by the time the crowds find out about it is just a few days with multiple offers. Although the number of active listings increased seven percent over last month, overall inventory levels are lower than the same period last year, a sign of a sellers’ market. Currently there is a supply of approximately 7 weeks of inventory.

 

“Denver area homes continue to sell at a rapid pace and at almost 100 percent of asking price, a testament to a strong housing market,” said KirbySlunaker, president and CEO of Metrolist. “Inventory levels remain tight in the Denver metro and surrounding area, showing strong demand and a competitive marketplace.”
