Before jumping into the real estate update this week, I want to take a moment to say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the moms out there. You deserve thanks and appreciation each and every day for the love and support you provide to your families, friends, neighbors and communities. The past year has been especially challenging, so make sure you do something extra special for the moms in your life this Mother’s Day. The women at Central Park Scoop have an ongoing text chain where we give each other advice, share funny stories/memes/videos/etc., talk about difficult parenting and #momfail moments and provide one another with support and connection. This week we’ve been talking about our ideal Mother’s Day and responses have varied from hiking a 14er with the family to spending the day alone with a good book and a bottle of wine. So, I thought I’d share the top 4 things moms really want for Mother’s Day according to a TopCashback survey of 565 moms… in case you’re still trying to figure out what to give mom this weekend.
- 34% want a clean house
- 32% would like acknowledgement that they’re doing a good job
- 30% want a break from the mom routine
- 26% would like a delivered meal (breakfast/lunch/brunch/dinner)
Whatever you do to celebrate this weekend, we hope every mom feels loved and appreciated.
Now onto this week’s real estate update. For those of you looking to build new, Joe Phillips posted some updated information on the Brookfield Residential homes in North End. In recent years, Brookfield replaced Forest City as the Central Park developer and, while they’re a well-known national builder, this is the first time they’re building homes in Central Park. Brookfield has over 300 lots with 4 different product lines: 3-story townhomes, small single-family homes, slightly bigger single-family homes and large paired homes. Get all the details on each style of home here. We’ll continue to bring you updates from other local builders in the coming weeks.

7 new listings hit the market this week. While they’re all great for various reasons, I want to highlight the 3 that offer rare main floor primary bedrooms.
With over 4,000 sq ft, this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home has a 2-story living room at the heart of the home allowing natural light to flow throughout. The primary bedroom is on the main floor and has large windows, an ensuite bath with soaker tub, a walk-in closet and convenient access to the laundry room. Two more bedrooms, a bathroom and a loft can be found on the second floor while the 4th bedroom is located in the spacious finished basement. Thanks to a front-loading garage, the backyard is a nice size and features a sprawling multi-tiered patio with retractable awning. Enjoy lower energy bills thanks to owned solar panels. Check out the video tour here. Listed for $879,000 by Joe Phillips with Focus Real Estate.
This great Wonderland ranch townhome sits on a corner lot and has over 2,300 sq ft, an open-concept living area, 2 main level bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Vaulted ceilings and a soft, neutral palate team up to create a bright and airy space. With over 900 sq ft in the unfinished basement, there’s plenty of storage and a fantastic opportunity to create your dream basement with additional bedrooms, another bathroom, theater, exercise area and/or play room… whatever your heart desires. The low-maintenance yard is complete with a large, partially covered patio with accent lighting and mountain views. Listed for $605,000 by Jeremy Kane with eXp Realty, LLC.
This well-maintained ground level condo features 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, in-unit laundry and a reserved parking space. Conveniently located close to the 29th Ave Town Center, Aviator pool, parks, open space and public transportation. While this property is not part of Denver’s income-qualified program, the building does require the units to be owner occupied. Listed for $315,000 by Niels Oomkes with Corcoran Perry & Co.
One home is currently listed as Coming Soon and, word on the street is, quite a few more will come on the market in the next few weeks. So, if you don’t see a home that meets your needs, don’t lose hope yet.
20 properties went under contract in the past week. The properties range from $223k to over $1.65M.
The list of sold properties blows my mind this week. Of the 22 properties with new owners, 10 of them closed for over $1M. Wow. As always, I want to wish a warm welcome to all our new neighbors.
There are currently 12 homes available in Central Park ranging from $315k to $1.225M. Again, if you don’t see anything that meets your needs, more listings are on the horizon.
That’s the real estate update this week. Please reach out if you have questions or see a property you’d like more information on. If you’re thinking about selling your home, our team offers free home valuations and full listing services for just 2% listing fee (less if you also want our help finding your next home). Give me a call or send me a message; I’d love to help. Have a great weekend everyone.
Our Friday real estate updates are meant to be a “roundup” type post where we discuss all listings in Central Park, not just our own. It’s our way of making sure we follow the market closely and we share it with the Scoop readers because we know many of you like to track real estate in the area as well. Many of the listings in these posts are not our company’s listings and we wanted to mention that here to make sure it’s clear. Thanks for reading the Scoop
