Here’s the latest and greatest on the Stapleton real estate market for the week. We have over 7,000 homes in the community and we have a grand total of 24 active listings in all price ranges! So far 2017 is bringing more of the same…very low inventory and lots of competition among buyers.
There are just 6 new listings this week and of those several look grossly over priced to me. I’m not going to call anyone out in particular but buyers should make sure to see some good comparable sale data before making offers. Just because it’s a tight market doesn’t mean sellers can make the price up out of thin air.
Not finding what you want in the resale market because inventory is so low? Read all the Stapleton Builder Updates here! Many of the builders are releasing new lots in Beeler Park and Bluff Lake so there is a good chance you can find something you want if you’re willing to wait through the new build process. Not sure what building new is like, this video series we shot on every step of the process can help!
There were 11 Stapleton homes that went under contract this week. Things are heating up, most of these homes sold in the first week on the market and many in just the first few days. Well priced homes, especially in the $600k or less price range, are selling very quickly and often times receiving multiple offers.
Maybe you’ve lost a few of these bidding wars as a buyer. Check out a post we did a while back called 8 Tips to Make Your Offer Stand Out for a few ideas you may want to consider!
There were 10 closed sales this week in Stapleton.
As I mentioned there are only 24 total active listings in Stapleton. With the pace homes are going under contract (11 per week) we have about a half month’s worth of inventory! That means we’re in a tight seller’s market that would still encourage appreciation.
