SE Region Metro Denver Real Estate Market Report – October 2014

Southeast Region Metro Denver Real Estate Market Report ~ September 2014

The SE Metro Denver Region has the most inventory of all five regions and the highest average price.  The “average days on market” to sell is the longest but only by a difference of 10 days!  (Denver’s days on market is 30 while SE Metro is 40!)  Out of the 18 zip codes in this region only six are not in the “seller’s market/extreme seller’s market” category.  Four of those six areas are just slightly lagging behind in the “Moderate to High Appreciation” category. The two remaining areas are Castle Rock and Sedalia where the market is a little slower to sell (59 days) due to the large amount of inventory.  I suspect the number of new homes being built has an effect on this area.

In September 55% of the listings taken were sold. That is a very strong market for this desirable area.

Denver real estate says Not all toilet seats are created equal

toilet seatNew home construction continues to build in conveniences Grandma never had.

There was a time when Grandma looked forward to in-door plumbing as a new and modern convenience. Fast forward conveniences today…

We now have toilet seats with Easy Close hinges. No more annoying slams of the toilet seat. No more pinched fingers.

Of course Grandma isn’t the only one who want s tranquility in the bathroom. Every woman would appreciate a toilet lid that closes quietly.

I have one for sale! In fact I have 5 of these lovely, quiet toilet lids for sale, buy them and get a stately, brand new house to go along with them. $719,000.00
