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 over $1 million. Some have mountain (snow-capped now) and/or city views, some back to a golf course or have water views. (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.
We have felt a crispness in the air here and there already (which is early this year), as Fall has arrived. Ready for Bronco games (they need some prayers) and fall gatherings? Need a game room/media room or a fabulous outdoor entertainment area?
Here is how the luxury market fared for the month of September 2019 -
Total sales - 133 homes ranging from $1,000,000 to $5,650,000 (last month was 164 homes, so this sector of our market is slowing down a bit)
Average Days on Market - 89 days (last month was 66 days)
Average price per SF (Total) - $271.36 (last month was $250.03)
These homes were built from 1892 to 2019
The highest priced home sold was $5,650,000 in the Denver Metro and was in The Denver Country Club. This stunning home was built in 1909, on .25 acres with 5 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and a 4-car garage. This home has 8,387 total finished square feet.
There were no short sales nor bank foreclosures sold this month.
The first few months were slow around the Denver metro area, but both the luxury market and the resale/new construction market saw a bump in activity in the spring months, and as we look at Fall, we saw an uptick in sales over year in September (only had 95 sales vs 133 this year).
