Dear <<First Name>>,
We apologize for the delay in in this newsletter. The market exploded in March and April with a large number of buyers needing help and a very low inventory. So we have been extremely busy trying to find that special home for our clients, with most of our listings in close neighborhoods selling very fast.
The Denver metro area is one of 10 out of 339 where construction jobs reached over 77,000. The new home builders realized the demand was there and they have been frantically building with new homes being 6-8 months out.
Just a word of caution in reference to new residential homes: it always pays to get the help of a Realtor in the purchase of a new home ( it will not cost the buyer anything more) and we are aware of issues that the people on site will not tell you and therefore overall we can potentially save you money.
The finished Union Station is where nearly 1 billion in residential and retail developments have sprung up around it, and the 122 miles of East Tracks mass transit transportation project has contributed to the construction jobs and has increased the number of buyers and renters in our area.
Several companies are relocating to Denver with high paid employees that are helping to create a demand for higher end homes.
Rentals are at a premium, which is great for landlords and for investors, but very bad for tenants who end up spending a very high percentage of their income just to secure a roof over their heads.
As for the type of homes very much in demand, the aging of the Boomers Generation and the coming of age of late Generation X, we have seen a surge in demand for homes with main floor masters, small or minimal yard, easy commute to shopping, recreation, work. There is a great demand for energy efficient homes, increased technologies and ease of care. There is more awareness of possible hazards in the home and issues like radon, lead based paint, asbestos, mold and carbon monoxide have become deal breakers. Another emerging concern of home buyers is the safety of drinking water.
As an Ecobroker, we try to be as informed as possible on any concerning issues when considering a home.
We are happy to provide you the EPA website : www.epa.gov where you can find great answers to all sorts of questions.
