This Week In Stapleton Real Estate 12.13.19

I know we’re still a couple weeks away from the holidays, but I can’t help but think of all the things I’m grateful for this year.  One thing I’m grateful for, of course, is all our awesome Stapleton neighbors who make this job we do so enjoyable.  We’re so thankful for all of you who follow the Scoop, watch our (sometimes silly) videos, and read our weekly posts.  We couldn’t be successful without you!

What a year we’ve had!  From the new Hygge Birth and Baby Center opening just south of Stapleton last March, to the opening of Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea and so many other new restaurants and businesses (Urban Air, Pizzeria Locale, Constellation, and on and on), to the continued progress at Stapleton’s light rail station development and anticipated opening of the new Sprouts, Stapleton has grown in so many ways this year.

With that said, on to the real estate update!

3 New Stapleton Listing This Week
We only have 3 new resale listings this week, which is somewhat common this time of year, but don’t let the low inventory fool you – there are great homes to see this weekend.  Including…

5066 Yosemite Court, #1

4 bedroom, 4 bathroom paired home directly across from Maverick Pool in Conservatory Green!  This like-new home is surrounded by parks (Maverick Pool and Spinning Spokes) and has a huge private yard.  How big is the backyard?  Check out the photo above!  That’s a 14′ trampoline in the backyard … and there’s plenty of room to spare!

This David Weekley home is listed for $549,000 by (me!) Mariel Ross at Focus Real Estate.

5487 Uinta Way
Listed for $665,000, this upgraded 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom home features one of Thrive’s most popular and open floorplans and includes a pre-paid solar lease!  With a large finished basement and oversized attached two car garage, you’ll have plenty of storage and you’re only a quick walk to Prairie Meadows Park.

All told, there are only 26 resale homes on the market this week, so if you don’t see the right fit in a resale – why not check out what the builders have to offer with projected closings in the next few months!

Quick Move-In Opportunities in Stapleton
Did you know that as of last week there were more than 30 spec homes available in Stapleton?  A “Spec Home” (short for speculative home) is a home that a builder starts building without a buyer for the home yet.  Also known as “quick move-in” homes, spec homes can be at almost any stage in the construction process – from excavation to framing to drywall to 100% complete, and any stage in between.

Builders have spec homes for a variety of reasons. For example, Stapleton’s builders often build homes in groups or blocks, and if a builder has sold most of the lots on a block the builder might elect to start construction on the whole block while looking for buyers for the remaining unsold homes. Other times, a home may have once had a buyer, but the buyer’s financing fell through or some other issue arose, and the buyer had to walk away from the home.

Regardless, there are a lot of spec home opportunities right now.  Here are some of my favorites.  Also be sure to check out this Scoop post for a more comprehensive inventory list:  Stapleton’s “Secret” New Home Inventory – Over 30 spec Homes Available Today!

Our Friday real estate updates are meant to be a “roundup” type post where we discuss all listings in Stapleton, 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!
