The Evolution of Denver’s Berkeley Neighborhood 

Berkeley, a beloved neighborhood located in the northwest part of Denver, has seen transformative real estate development over the past decade or so. This revitalization is not only altering the neighborhood’s architectural landscape but also contributing to the evolution of the community. As the area evolves, it blends its historic charm with modern housing and amenities and remains one of Denver’s most vibrant neighborhoods.

A Fresh Approach to Housing

Due to the city's fairly recent rezoning near the ever-popular Tennyson St, both commercial and residential real estate development in Berkeley continue to thrive.  Notably, the development around Tennyson Street has seen an influx of modern…

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…

Are people buying and selling homes in Denver during Covid-19?Many people have asked us what the recent Colorado stay-at-home order means for real estate. We’ve compiled some FAQs to help!

Can people still buy or sell a home in Colorado right now?  In Colorado, Real Estate has been categorized as a “Critical Business”, which allows real estate professionals to continue offering services as long as we all comply with social distancing and safety guidelines mandated by the CDC.

Why is Real Estate a critical business?  Job transfers, sellers with contingent offers on another home, and timely family situations are just a couple of the reasons people need to continue to buy or sell their Colorado home.

Sunnyside Denver MuralOnce a little known area, Sunnyside has officially become one of Denver’s hottest neighborhoods. Located next to LoHi and Berkeley and just minutes from downtown, it’s no wonder that Sunnyside is seeing huge interest right now.

The average cost of homes for sale Sunnyside is currently $466,433, a dramatic increase over previous years. We expect this to continue to go up over the next few years, most likely at a higher rate than surrounding areas.  

Sunnyside has always been a great location, but its lack of town center put it at a disadvantage over popular neighboring areas like The Highlands and Berkeley. This all changed recently due to major commercial reinvestment. Zuni St & 44th is quickly becoming an established town center with new popular…
