A Broncos win, weather in the 70s and the last farmer’s market of the season – it’s shaping up to be an awesome weekend here in Stapleton! And what goes better with pumpkin spice latte weather than a new house? Yeah, okay, that might be a stretch, but feel free to try it on your significant other 😉 Without further ado, here’s your weekly update.
9 new Stapleton resale listings this week
This week Stapleton has 9 new listings, only one of which is a detached single family home! But the great news (especially for first time buyers and downsizers) is that 7 of the 9 are listed under $500,000. With 2-4 beds, plenty of square footage and locations all over Stapleton, they are all great options – but here are our 3 favorites for the week!
8176 E 53rd Drive – $475,000
Looking for the right opportunity to get in to the Willow Park East Neighborhood? Check out this 3 bed, 2.5 bath KB Paired Home with excellent community location and unfinished basement. Listed at $475,000, this home has everything you need with the opportunity to finish the basement the way you want. The open plan, large master suite, quartz/granite countertops are just a handful of the great features of this home – be sure to come see for yourself at my open house – Saturday 12-3pm! Or check out the 3D tour here.
5368 Valentia Street – $639,000
I had an opportunity to take a look at this home today, and it truly exceeds expectations! These Wonderland Terrace Homes are rarely on the market, so it’s always exciting to see one pop up. 5368 Valentia has beautiful finishes and plenty of space inside, but the outdoor space is what really sets it apart. The rooftop deck has incredible views of downtown and the Front Range (you should definitely check that out!), and since it’s an end unit, it also has a large backyard. Ashley Howlett is hosting an open house Saturday and Sunday from 12-3pm if you’d like to stop by and check out that view!
9722 E 35th Avenue – $800,000
I’m excited to see this beautiful Parkwood home! Perfectly located in north Eastbridge, you’re tucked into the neighborhood but walkable to everything Eastbridge has to offer. With 4 beds, 3.5 baths, super cool 3rd floor loft, and larger backyard, this home is plenty big for a growing family – especially with possibilities in the unfinished basement!
Not finding what you need in this week’s resale listings? There’s a great selection of new construction homes in Beeler Park and North End – some available immediately! Check out this 3 bedroom, dual master paired home from CalAtlantic! $489,642 includes a finished basement, fireplace and wonderful yard with private deck. Excellent value and you could be in before Thanksgiving! Ever wonder how a realtor can help with new construction? And did you know that it costs you nothing to have our help? It’s true!

7 Under Contract Homes This Week
7 Stapleton homes went under contract this week after spending on average 33 days on the market. You read that right – over a month. We have certainly seen a slowing in the market over the past couple of months, and many of our buyers and sellers have asked our thoughts on this. From an agent’s perspective, we’re seeing a plateau in prices (which honestly needed to happen! Whew!), but well cared for and well priced homes are still selling quickly. For buyers, this means it’s a great time to snap up a home without having to contend with the wild bidding wars we saw in the spring and summer. For sellers, you’ll just want to be sure that your home is well presented and priced right from the first day of listing. The trick in any market is to price a home reasonably enough so you will get attention from buyers quickly and hopefully you will end up with a multiple bidder situation (that’s best case scenario). If you over price a home, your most eager buyers, who are looking at homes every day and know values well, will ignore the listing.
6 Sold Homes This Week
6 Stapleton resale homes closed in the last 7 days – see them all in the link above! These 6 homes were on the market an average of 29 days.
50 Stapleton Resale Homes This Week
Stapleton has a total of 50 resale listings ranging from a 3 bedroom income qualified home listed at $239,900 to a 7 bedroom Infinity Haus listed at $1,350,000 and everything in between. Whatever you’re shopping for, you’re likely to find it this week – and if you’d like some help – please give us a ring! Joe, Amy and I at Focus Real Estate are here to help!

Disclaimer: 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!
