We’re back with the Stapleton Scoop real estate update this week. As the daylight hours become longer, the Denver housing market is beginning to show signs of spring too. Are you thinking about selling this spring but feel overwhelmed at the idea of listing? Here are some tips to help you get started.
Step one in deciding how you want to make your move involves choosing a realtor and lender to guide you with the process. Talking with both your realtor and lender before listing will help layout the process with advocates in your corner during the entire process. They can also help you decide how you want to move. Some people prefer to live in the house while it’s for sale. Check the next step below on how to best get your house showroom ready. Others choose to move first and then sell. Joe Phillps has some awesome loan program information that he shared on the Scoop recently, which may be the right fit for you.
The next step for a homeowner is preparing your home to list. Check out my post about staging and clearing the clutter here. This is a great mental exercise in clearing the way for your new space! Part of presenting the best version of your home is getting great pictures! At Focus, we make a point of working with professional photographers for all of our listings. This can make a huge difference in how your home looks to potential buyers. Dark and dreary photos can ruin your chances of getting the most exposure for your sale.
These two steps can get you on your way to maximizing your home sale potential. Check out our Seller Roadmap to find out the listing to close process at Focus.
Here’s what was happening in the Stapleton market this week.
This week there are 6 new listings in Stapleton. Here are some we’d like to showcase.
This stunning 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath Parkwood Chestertown home is situated on the brick paved sidewalks of Boston Street just steps from a park with green space and a playground. It’s bright and spacious, flooded with natural light from the large western facing windows overlooking the front porch. One of my favorite things about this house is the front door. This may seem like something simple but this is the door that sets the stage for the entry to the home and helps you fall in love with a Parkwood. It is mostly windows and reflects the openness and neighborly charm that Stapleton and this quaint street represent. The laundry room on the second floor offers the convenience of getting the work done near the bedrooms. On the main level, the mudroom connecting the garage to the space is a huge plus in keeping organized with a busy lifestyle. Located at 5222 Boston Street, listed by Amy Atkinson with Focus Real Estate, for $910,000. Feel free to reach out for a showing amy@focus-realtors or stop by the open house hosted by Ashley on Saturday from 12-4.
Beautiful, 2 bedroom/1.5 bathroom end-unit income qualified townhome in Stapleton’s Willow Park East Neighborhood! This nearly new end unit offers two light-filled stories that combine efficiency and functionality with plenty of upgrades! Located at 5285 Central Park Blvd, listed by Mariel Ross with Focus Real Estate for $245,195.

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!
