Sloan’s Lake Market Update: July 2014

Follow on Facebook at Highlands Pulse!

 

As your local 8z REALTOR and market expert, it is my pleasure to recap data and provide this market update for Denver’s  Sloan’s Lake neighborhood. Stay tuned each month as I post updated information on our market’s activity.

 

22 homes sold in June for a total volume of $9,247,250, ranging from a cozy 1/2 duplex at $130k to a new build at $845k. Currently there are 44 listings, of which 23 are under contract, resulting in only 21 active listings. Activity has been in keeping with the most recent history… varying styles, sizes and ages of homes moving quickly in this sellers’ market.

 

Since July 1 there are 11 new listings ranging from $225,000 to $1,125,000, $177 per finished square foot to $375 per finished square ft.

 

The wide range is the difference between a non-updated 1960 home to a high style new build. And this remains true to the community, all types, ages and styles of homes available, all selling. Another reoccurring plus factor is location and whether or not there are views. The closer you are to the lake and if you have lake and/or mountain views almost always makes a huge difference.

 

Along with an increase in the number of home sold, the average price went up as well.

Along with an increase in the number of home sold, the average price went up as well.

 

If you are going to sell and want top dollar then you have to do your homework. Have the home inspected and do any deferred maintenance, make sure it is spotless, and professionally staged. Listings are in demand yet it appears many sellers are taking this sellers’ market for granted and some have over priced and didn’t do their homework. Those listings sit a bit and cause need for multiple price decreases, which can ultimately make a buyer wonder why it is not selling. Don’t make that error. Also buyers who are paying top dollar are expecting a clean inspection, if there are issues the buyer expects the seller to correct. The message here is don’t be over zealous in your list price.

 

Sloan’s Lake continues to have a vibrant real estate market with healthy resale activity as well as new builds, renovations and huge pop top projects moving along quickly. Sloan’s Lake will continue to see growth as this community is well positioned to continue for those who just love Sloan’s Lake and for those priced out of neighboring West Highlands. Upcoming months will see continued movement due to all the renovation and rebuilds. And because of savvy sellers of older homes – they know the market is strong.

 

I believe all of Denver may have seen a slight slow down in listings, which is typical due to summer vacations. If you are thinking of selling then now is a prime time to get your home in order and list now, as the remainder of summer will be strong!

 

I am only a call or email away from providing you assistance. 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.

2210 Meade Street, Denver: A Sloan’s Lake Review

2210 Meade Street was reviewed over the past few days in the Sloan’s Lake neighborhood in Denver. Read below to find out more about 8z Real Estate’s take on this listing, and follow Highlands Pulse on Facebook!

 

The Specs:2210 Meade Sloan's Lake

Address: 2210 Meade Street, Denver, CO 80211

Price: $1,125,000

Bedrooms: 4

Bathrooms: 3

Total Square Feet: 3,900

Year Built: 1916

Original List Date: 07/11/2014

Location: Sloan’s Lake

 

 

 

 

 

The Scoop:

Nice 6,350 sq foot lot with a single family detached home – this is a new build from an original 1916 home. Priced at $1,125,000, the 3,000 finished sq feet have to be stunning to make this home sell at $375 per finished sq feet.  There are 900 sq feet of unfinished lower level living that is all roughed in, incl, bath, and this would be a snap to finish out, providing a wonderful lower level living space. So will it live up to the $375 psf price?  While the attention to detail in the finishes will be way above average, there may be some push back on the price.

 

Here is what I love:  oversized door brings you into a dramatic entry with natural stone and a view of the parallam stairs.  Details are here in the shadow reveal moulding, walnut hardwood and metal accents.   On the main level you will enjoy the living room with fireplace, dining room with accent wall and cabinetry, kitchen with Euro-style sleek white cabinetry and Thermador appliances, cozy informal dining area and family room with glass walls that open up to rear yard with patio and terraced yard, which is very fitting for this home with a 2 car garage.  Lots of yard / garden space as this is a detached home, not a duplex. Also on main floor is a generous 3 pc bath and bedroom. The second level is open to the entry way and has the master/bed bath that I appreciate with the fabulous vessel soaking tub as seen thru the walk-thru glass shower. Two more beds and another generous bath won’t disappoint and neither will the closets.  Those handsome modern stairs continue up to the roof top deck with 360 views of city and mountains. There is also a storage area here – how smart!

 

So this home is a beauty but may be priced a bit on the high side at $375 psf. All the finished sq footage is above grade, so maybe this price is just right.   If you desire a contemporary 4 bed, 3 bath detached home in the sought after Sloan’s Lake neighborhood, be sure to take a look and decide for yourself.

2630 Yates Street, Denver: A Sloan’s Lake Review

2630 Yates Street was reviewed over the past few days in the Sloan’s Lake neighborhood in Denver. Read below to find out more about 8z Real Estate’s take on this listing, and follow Highlands Pulse on Facebook!

 

The Specs:2630 Yates  Sloan's Lake

Address: 2630 Yates Street, Denver, CO 80212

Price: $575,000

Bedrooms: 4

Bathrooms: 2

Total Square Feet: 2,480

Year Built: 1952

Original List Date: 07/15/2014

Location: Sloan’s Lake

 

 

The Scoop:

Not known for sure, but my bet is that the current owners of this home have vastly improved the home and are moving up!

 

This is a great example of loving a 1952 home and bringing it current with today’s living.  From the front yard you can see the sparkling lake!  There are 2,480 updated sq feet in this all brick Bungalow with full basement.  When you walk in the door you will be surprised by the open layout and the flowing wood floors from the living area with the modern fireplace, into the open kitchen and dining room. The home has custom 4″ concrete slab countertops and concrete bath sinks. On a warm day the evaporative cooler was working well.  This home has contemporary designer touches throughout. Both the bedrooms on the main level are generously sized and have a nicely updated hall bath.  The basement has 2 bedrooms which appear to be non-conforming, another really nice bath, and a generous family room and wet bar. I really loved the rear yard which is neatly landscaped with a super nice covered patio. Take note of how the current owners use this patio as I bet you will want to replicate this entertaining area. Lots of  parking too.

 

This property was listed on 7/15 and it may be a bit overpriced at $575,000 which is $231 per finished sq foot, $463 psf above grade. The sellers have loved this home and done a lot of upgrading but I think we may need to see a price decrease before a buyer is willing to make a move.

 

Some buyers may have a difficult time knowing how to layout the living room furniture and I think this listing would benefit from a professional stager’s touch.  Also the nice bar in kitchen won’t get used much due to the dining room furniture size/placement.

 

The Score:

Below are my overall ratings for 2630 Yates Street, Denver, CO 80212:

Layout/Floor Plan: 3

2152 Newton Street, Denver: A Sloan’s Lake Review

Total Square Feet: 2,702

 

Year Built: 2006

 

Original List Date: 04/23/2014

 

Location: Sloan’s Lake

 

 

 

 

The Scoop:

 

Good square footage in this 2,600 sq foot 2006 built duplex. It’s nice to see a foyer in a newer build and a good size main level living area. It is well lit with natural lighting. Other than foyer, this 3 level home has a fairly traditional layout for this architectural style with 4 beds and 3 1/2 baths. The stairs to lower level are not visible and that would be a nice change to see – open up that staircase! Walking up the stairs to the upper level, which hosts the master bed and bath, laundry and 2 other bedrooms and shared bath, there is a spiral metal staircase to the roof top deck that is a good size. I did not care for the stairway up and that the deck is not private from the attached neighbor’s deck. The buyer for this home could be family as there are 3 beds on upper level [the fourth is in lower level that has it's own bath, laundry and family room with wet bar. Or a couple could take advantage of the extra beds for offices.

 

I think there may be a few reasons why this home hasn't sold yet [it was listed mid April]. First it was listed too high and had to come down, that isn’t the best scenario for the seller, secondly, the spiral staircase and lastly, the property just misses some wow factors seen in other homes priced lower per finished sq feet. It is possible to see another price decrease.

2018 Osceola Street, Denver: A Sloan’s Lake Review

2018 Osceola Street was reviewed over the past few days in the Sloan’s Lake neighborhood in Denver. Read below to find out more about 8z Real Estate’s take on this listing, and follow Highlands Pulse on Facebook!

 

The Specs:2018 Osceola Sloan's Lake

Address: 2018 Osceola Street, Denver, CO 80212

Price: $749,000

Bedrooms: 4

Bathrooms: 5

Total Square Feet: 3,597

Year Built: 2007

Original List Date: 07/18/2014

Location: Sloan’s Lake

 

 

 

 

The Scoop:

 

Beautiful 4 bedroom 4 1/2 bath home with stunning lake and mountain views!  I love this home and I am not one who goes crazy over 4 story living but this home is quality built with a nice floor plan.  While this can be a family home, with the beds split over 3 levels it might best serve empty nesters or those with older children. There are multiple options for office areas. The main level floor plan has living room, dining room, family room, kitchen and another informal eating area – and powder bath with attractive rock pedestal sink.  You can have one level living for most the day. The rear yard is nicely landscaped with handsome pergolas – you will want to spend some time here!  The lower level has a larger family room with so much light and another laundry area, [there is laundry on the second level too.]  This home is perfect for Sloan’s Lake as it takes in the lake and mountain views from multiple areas of the home. It has a nicely landscaped yard that is just right for those who don’t want to spend a lifetime of yard care – why would you?  Living next to Sloan’s Lake and so close to all that West Highlands has to offer.

 

Priced at $749,000 with 3,541 finished sq feet, [$211 per finished sq ft], this appears to be priced very fair for the market, considering the green/eco features, finished landscaping both front and back, window coverings, views and location just steps away to a quiet and serene part of Sloan’s Lake. Move in ready!

 

When viewing, the home has nice feature cards throughout so you don’t miss a detail. Be prepared for the multiple levels – it’s worth it!
