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…

If you live in the Denver area, you’ve felt the rapid rise in home values. That’s because Denver averaged a 12 percent per year increase from 2013 to 2015. Wondering what’s causing it? Here are the top reasons why Denver home prices are growing so fast.  

    1. Supply & Demand - Thousands of people are moving to Denver every week and the housing market simply cannot keep up.

Rendering for New Construction in Denver The Denver real estate market has seen an influx of new home builders in response to the shortage of homes for sale in Denver.  As I specialize in new construction in Denver, many of my clients know they want new construction, but don’t understand the different options.  There are now a variety of options for new construction in Denver, most of which fall into three main categories: Custom Homes, New Home Communities (also known as Tract Homes), and Spec Homes.  Like most things in life, all have pros and cons, so it all depends on what is best for you.

Denver New Construction Home - Feaster RealtyLike many cities, Denver is in the midst of an urban revival, resulting in Denver's huge uptick in brand new construction homes and pop top homes. As a Denver real estate agent that specializes in this, I often field questions regarding scraping and building a new home or popping the top on an existing home.  The answer depends on your priorities, but here a few helpful things to make an informed decision.

Why Pop the Top of a House?

As I see it, the biggest advantage of popping the top of an existing home, is the fact that it allows you to keep part of that home. This is a huge positive for home buyers that love homes with historic charm, but want a larger or more up-to-date version of a home with history.  Building restrictions in historic…
