It’s Friday, which means it’s time for our weekly update on the Stapleton real estate market! Even though we’re still in the “stay at home” period it looks like we’re getting closer to being back out in the world, clients are starting to prepare to make their moves and we have a lot of exciting info to share with you.
First off, we know we’re in uncertain times and people are likely looking for ways to save money. So as a team we put our heads together and came up with 3 ways for Stapleton homeowners to save money as they make their moves.
#1 – We’re reducing our commissions and now charge 1.5% as our listing agent fee when selling Stapleton homes.
#2 – We’re adding property leasing to the services we offer clients.
#3 – We’re selling new build buyer client’s homes FREE when they already know which new build they want to buy and we’re their buyer’s agent.
You can read up on the details of these ideas and see examples of how much you could save in this blog post we wrote today titled “3 Ideas to Save Stapleton Buyers & Sellers Money”. Please forward this on if you know someone planning to make a move that may want to hear about these programs.
In other local housing news, Stapleton’s developer, Brookfield, just released the lot map showing all the lots and builders for the second half of “North End,” Stapleton’s last neighborhood! Lots aren’t released yet for sale and they won’t likely start home construction till Fall, but if you’re planning to build a new home in Stapleton it’s not too early to start planning ahead. Will your favorite builder be building the home series you love? Will they have lots that appeal to you? You can check out this lot map now to see! And if you want to learn more about North End homes sign up at our site specifically for this area called HomesInNorthEnd.com.
One last thing before we jump into the new, under contract and sold Stapleton listings for the week. We’re going to add a section to the weekly update that shows available homes for rent. You can see that section at the bottom of this post, which is where it will be going forward. That way renters can find some value in the weekly Scoop update too.
This week there were 11 new Stapleton listings that hit the market, which isn’t a lot but it’s just over twice as many as last week. So our guess is with the “stay at home” period starting to lift soon some sellers are starting to list their homes for sale that have been waiting. I expect more homes will hit the market next week too as sellers that planned to sell in Spring have been holding back.
Here are a few listings that caught my eye this week.
The first is 10071 E 26th Ave. This home, listed by our friend Donna Ryan with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty, is South-facing on a pocket park! Plus it’s conveniently located right between the Eastbridge Town Center and the Stanley Marketplace. It’s roughly 2,200 finished sf, has 3 beds and features a nice size backyard. In the mid/upper $600k’s I don’t see this one lasting too long on the market.
The second one we wanted to mention was 6002 Chester St listed by Hannah Svoboda with SRI Properties. This Parkwood home was built in 2017 so it looks brand new! It features over 4,200 finished sf, 6 bedrooms and an amazingly large yard for the neighborhood!
There were 10 homes that went under contract in Stapleton this week. You can see those in the link above. Buyer activity is still pretty strong given the fact that we’re in the stay at home period still. This makes me think as the stay at home period gets lifted we’ll be pretty busy.
There are currently 54 homes for sale in Stapleton.
Looking for those beautiful mountain views? You won’t be disappointed by 2552 Fulton. You won’t find a South side Stapleton home with these types of views and a park facing location in the $600k’s! Check out the 3D tour.
There are currently 9 properties for rent in Stapleton.
That’s it for the Stapleton Scoop this week! Enjoy your weekend. For more info on buying or selling a home with Focus Real Estate, check out this video series.
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!
