New Stapleton Listings This Week

There are 12 new listings that hit the Stapleton market this week.  If you are looking for a large home with a finished basement and plenty of room I’d check out 10102 E 29th Ave.  If you’re looking in the $300k’s and you want walkability I love the new listing at 3022 Fulton St.  It’s just steps from the new Eastbridge Town Center, it has mountain views and an open and spacious kitchen.

Under Contract Stapleton Homes This Week

There were 18 Stapleton homes that went under contract this week.  At that volume it shows we only have a couple of weeks worth of inventory on the market.  Many of the homes are under contract in just days, but sellers should be aware that a deal isn’t over till it’s over.  One common problem lately is appraisals have been coming in low on quite a few deals.  From what I read and experience I think about 1 in 4 appraisals is coming in low.  This is due to the fact that bidding wars have pushed home prices up and the appraisers don’t have the closed comparable sales they need to meet the price.  Once an appraisal comes in low it is up to the buyer and seller what will happen.  Lower the price?  Keep the price and the buyer brings more cash to closing?  Meet in the middle?  These are common negotiations these days and often times the buyer will include in their offer what they’re willing to do related to appraisal shortages.  This is just one of the unique things to watch out for in this seller’s market.

Sold Stapleton Homes This Week

There were 10 closed sale this week.

See All Stapleton Active Listings

There are now 41 total active listings in Stapleton which is up a bit.  Inventory has trended up slightly in the neighborhood in the past few months but that makes sense since it’s May and prime time for selling.  Most people list their homes in the Spring so I’d expect to see inventory tick up as these homes hit the market.

  1. I, too, like both designs. The one with the tan blocks has a more coenrmpotary look. You really can't go wrong with either design. I am not much help, am I?

  2. That’s a smart way of looking at the world.
