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 $1.3 million. (Over the years I have used $1 million as luxury, but with our rising home values, had the need to increase this amount.) Some have mountain and/or city views, and 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 acreage. Whatever a Buyer is looking for, most likely if you have over $1.3 million, you can find it in Denver or in the surrounding suburbs.
Here is how the luxury market fared for the month of December 2022 -
Total sales - 115 homes ranging from $1,300,000 to $5,750,000 (last month was 149 homes, 2021 was 311)
Average Days on Market - 42 days (last month was 42 days last month and 2021 was 38 days)
Sellers saw - 97.49% to list price
Average price per SF (Total) - $599.00 (last month was $549.93)
These homes were built from 1900 to 2023
There was a significant drop in sales in December over 2021. 30% of the sales were paid with cash, and for the past few months, it has hovered around this percentage. There are 389 actives today with 105 days on market, and 188 in pending status with 88 days on market. The days on market with active and pending properties have increased.
The highest-priced home sold was $5,750,000 in the Denver Metro and is in Cherry Hills Village. This home was built in 2004, on .83 acres. It has 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and a 4-car garage. This home has 10,283 square feet and was sold in 137 days.

With home values on the rise, we are seeing more sales over $1 million. I did bump the price point to $1.3 million for 2022. It isn't unusual to see a million-dollar home. We are seeing some homes linger a bit longer on the market now.
