2023 Real Estate Tablerock Golden CO - Homes for SaleEverything changed in Golden's Tablerock real estate in 2023.  Well, not everything, but a lot!  Let's go through the key elements.

One of the most notable changes was activity.  Tablerock went from 10 homes sold in 2022 to four in 2023.  Mortgage rates went up towards the end of 2022 causing a notable drop in the number of Tablerock residents willing to list their home.  This wasn't a trend limited to Tablerock.  In fact, most Colorado residents currently have a mortgage rate of 4% or lower.  Rates have begun to drop, but we are still above 7%.  As such, the "golden handcuffs" will continue to play a role in Colorado's 2024 real estate market.   

Buyer demand for Tablerock homes for sale shifted as well.  In 2021, we used to joke that you could…

Renovated Contemporary Mountain Home in Silverthorne, COJay and I began searching for a mountain home in Summit County, Colorado during the summer of 2021.  Our lists of must-haves were a little different, but we figured we'd know the one when we saw it.  And, sure enough, we did.  On the other hand, our twin boys (9 years old at the time), thought we were absolutely crazy.  To be fair, this home needed a vision.  The finishes were beyond outdated, vinyl 'wood' paneling and ornate wallpaper covered many of the walls and the entire house smelled like moth balls. But the bones (and the mountain views!) were there, so we embraced the good and added lots of love, time, and our personal touches to make it what it is today. 

We've already made countless memories with friends and family in our renovated…

2023 Real Property Notice of Evaluation for Jefferson County, COIf you own a home in Colorado, you've no doubt opened the dreaded new property tax assessment notice.  We all knew this was coming, but it's still a tough pill to swallow!  As real estate agents, we want to make sure our clients understand how these changes will affect them.

We worked with our friends at Land Title to breakdown all things about Colorado's Property Taxes to share with all of you.

When and how much? 

In late April, county assessors mailed out valuation notices based on property values as of June 30, 2022, which also happens to be close to when home values peaked in Colorado.  On average, the increase is expected to be 25% to 27%, and in some counties (including resort markets) they may be as high as 65% or more. 

What are…

Tablerock Golden, CO real estate statistics 20222022 was another record breaking year for Golden's Tablerock neighborhood.   The highest priced home sold for $2M, a huge increase from last year's most expensive home that sold for $1.545M.  The average sold price also increased quite a bit with this year's average hitting $1.55M.  

Average days on market increased from 2 days to 12 days year over year, but this number is a little skewed as just two homes were listed for quite a long time while the others sold in just 3-6 days.

The change in interest rates throughout 2022 did have an effect on Tablerock's real estate market.  The biggest impact is that homeowners began simply refraining from listing their home towards the end of the year.  In fact, no one has listed a home in Tablerock since mid…

When I moved to Colorado, I had to get used to checking my weather app daily.  Back in Ohio, I knew that today's weather would probably be just like yesterday's, but, in Colorado, the "If you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes," claim was not an exaggeration. 

These recent mortgage rate changes are feeling pretty similar to our state's weather!  We now have to check rates every day if we want to accurately talk about them.  Just today, the average 30-year fixed rate is 5.55% when last week it was 5.13% and last year it was 2.87% (based on 0.8 points average).  As any homeowner knows, those small percentage points can really add up in a monthly payment!  

All this being said, it is good to keep some perspective.  While the current rates are…
