Welcome to our Stapleton “spec home” bonanza! In this week’s real estate update, I wanted to spend some time talking about Stapleton’s spec home market. Right now there are over 20 new homes in Stapleton’s North End that are complete or almost complete, but that don’t have buyers yet. Spec homes often have attractive pricing (builders want to sell them quickly), aren’t always on the MLS/Zillow, and may have exactly what you’re looking for without the wait! But first…
In case you missed it….
11245 E 25th Ave
Check out this nearly new modern and open townhome this Saturday from 1-4pm! Listed for $410,000, this Thrive townhome with 3 beds, 2.5 baths and attached 2-car garage is light, bright and perfectly located for access to the Anschutz Medical Campus, Eastbridge Town Center and Stanley Marketplace.
On to the specs!
What exactly is a spec home? Also known as “quick move-in” homes, the short answer is Stapleton’s builders occasionally build brand-new homes that don’t yet have buyers lined up. So if you’re looking for a new home in Stapleton, you could purchase a brand-new spec home with the full warranty, but without waiting the typical 6-18 months for the home to be built.
Given the current inventory of spec homes, this week I wanted to feature a few of my favorites. Be sure to check out the full Scoop post this weekend if you’d like to learn more about the 20+ available spec homes (we’ll update this with a link when it’s posted)!

10084 59th Ave – Lennar Homes NextGen Revelation – $747,200
Lennar’s NextGen Homes provide a home within a home – with a main floor apartment/suite and big 3-car garages. The Revelation floorplan allows for 3 beds/2.5 bath in the main portion of the house, plus a 1bed/1bath suite – and this home is located on a larger corner lot! This home is slated for a December 2020 completion date and is ready to tour now.

Modern farmhouse on a large courtyard only 1 block from the North End pool! 3 beds/3.5 bath with a finished basement and attached garage! Even better? This home is eligible for Wonderland’s $8000 incentive for homes closing in 2019. Buyers can use the incentive for closing costs, appliance package (Refrigerator, washer/dryer), etc. This sweet farmhouse will be ready in late November.
This is just a taste of what’s available! We’re writing up a more complete list for you, but if you’d like more info in the meantime or you are looking for something specific – just reach out to me!

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!
