A Luxury Home can be identified differently in cities across the country, but in Denver, my Luxury blog posts will report on detached single-family homes listed in the Denver metro area for over $1 million. Some have mountain and/or city views, some properties back to a golf course, or have water views all to compliment one's lifestyle. (however, we don't have much water) Some are updated with products from around the world, and some have expansive square footage or on acreage. Whatever a Buyer is looking for, most likely if you have over $1 million, you can find it in Denver or in the surrounding suburbs.
Here is how the luxury market fared for the month of December 2020
Total sales - 271 homes ranging from $1,000,000 to $9,450,000 (last month was 259 homes, 2019 was 129)
Average Days on Market - 49 days (last month was 55 days last month and 2019 was 79 days)
Average price per SF (Total) - $291.65 (last month was $282.93)
These homes were built from 1887 to 2020
The highest-priced home sold was $9,450,000 in the Denver Metro and is in Castle Pines Village. This expansive home was built in 2002 and completely remodeled, on 5.02 acres with a 7-car garage. This home has 5 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and 16,513 total finished square feet. This home was on the market for only 6 days.
There were no short sales sold, and no bank foreclosures sold this month.
I was predicting an interesting year of sales with the election in November but had no idea we would be facing this pandemic and affecting not only our real estate sales, but our entire economy. Sales were very strong prior to COVID and definitely saw an early spring buying season. For 8 weeks, there were no in-person showings, so after 5/8, this made all the difference. Not many buyers wanted to buy a home sight unseen. The stock market bouncing around a bit, leaving some buyers still on the fence for a purchase. In June the luxury market starting seeing an abundance of closed properties.
