October 2014 Market Happenings

Reporting the market trends for the greater Denver area is a service we provide on a monthly basis. The data is interesting, but the story at a macro level continues to be one of a seller's market.  Again, this month you can see above that inventory is down a full 20% from this same time last year, the days on market are down 20% and average sold price might end the year showing a double-digit increase.

These market conditions lead to questions such as: "How can we help buyers and investors find opportunities in this market?", and "When is the right time for a seller to take advantage of their rising property values?"  One tool that is unique to our company that helps us provide guidance is the price change map that we produce quarterly. This map allows us to give you a clear sense of the current real estate trends in each neighborhood. This more micro level hyper-local data advises you on how to make a better decision whether you're buying, selling or investing. The map below is at too low a resolution to review online as it covers a large geography, however once you have a 36" X 18" hard copy of the map in-hand the information is indeed very interesting!

How Our Custom Tools Can Help

If we were to sit down to review the map together, here are some examples of what could be gleaned. First, pick a neighborhood that interests you, say City Park. During the past 12 months in City Park the average Days on Market (DOM) for a listed property was 20.  There has been a 15% price increase in the past year, and the average sold price was $464,000. There were 23 sales in this time period, and currently there is only 1 Active property for sale, which equates to a .5 month supply.  What does this tell us about City Park?  It tells us that prices have been rising swiftly in the past year (low DOM and increasing prices) and the inventory is at rock bottom (only 1 Active property on the market!), which will help sellers in the neighborhood. With currently only a .5 month supply of homes for sale (6 months of supply is a balanced market) this is a red hot neighborhood.  This example parallels the more macro level trends and a seller could expect top dollar at this time.

However, if we were to take a look at University, the DOM is 29 and there has been a 7% rise in home prices in the past year.  The average sale price is $398,000 and in the previous 12 months there have been 149 sales. Currently there are 18 Active properties and there are 1.4 months of inventory. What this tells us is that University is a strong neighborhood with rising prices and low inventory, but not quite as strong as City Park and a buyer might find an opportunity. 

Although the primary printed map we produce focus on Denver Metro, we can produce custom maps for the suburbs as well.  Regardless as to where you wish to buy, sell or invest this tool provides a visual heat map as to where the market is hot, and where it might be a bit more temperate.

Give me a call and I'd be happy to sit down with you and review a full size copy of the Denver Metro area map or a custom map for your area of interest.

Halloween Safety Tips for the Family

halloweenOctober may be the official season of fall, but it’s also the official month of fright, ghosts and goblins. To help you and your family prepare for the upcoming Halloween traditions, it’s important to keep safety top of mind whether you’re out and about collecting candy or distributing pounds of chocolate, sugary Halloween treats.

Prepare Your Denver Home for Trick-or-Treaters

If you’re planning to participate in the trick-or-treating tradition of Halloween by providing candy and ghoulish goods at your doorstep, then make sure you prepare your residence safe, fun Halloween decorations and décor.

  • Clear a safe, lit path to your door, especially if it’s a snowy night, as is the tradition Colorado Halloweens.
  • Remove all obstacles or possibly dangerous objects from your yard.
  • Remove any dogs or other animals from your house so you don’t have to deal with your animals possibly escaping through the door when handing out candy or getting stressed out hearing the doorbell ring multiple times throughout the night.
  • Light your house well along your sidewalks and at your front door.
  • If you’re going the scary route with decorations this year, warn trick-or-treaters before they enter your property so parents with younger children can decide whether your home is age appropriate for their family.

Review Safety Tips with Your Kids

Before you hit the streets in your best-dressed costumes and scouring the block for the best candy in the neighborhood, take the time to go over the following Halloween safety tips from the Denver Police Department - pdf sheet download.

  • Children under the age of 14 should always trick-or-treat with an adult.
  • Costumes should be flame-resistant and well fitted, while masks should have large eye holes.
  • Use reflective tape on clothes and trick-or-treat bags, especially if you’re planning on being out after dark.
  • Try to do most of your trick-or-treating before dark, but bring a flashlight along if it gets dark before you’re finished.
  • Only visit homes you know and stay in well-lit areas.
  • Always walk (don’t run) on sidewalks and only cross the street at corners using traffic signals and crosswalks.
  • Only eat factory-wrapped treats and throw away candy if wrappers are faded, torn or show signs of re-wrapping.

Have a Ghoulish Fun Halloween Celebration

Halloween is all about having fun, but staying safe should also be a top priority for kids and parents. Keep these tips in mind as you adventure through your neighborhood with your little pumpkins, ghosts and goblins in tow so everyone can have a fun and safe holiday. Happy Halloween from the Denver real estate experts at New Era Group!

Old Denver Hood Gets Facelift

aparment buildingIt’s nearly complete! The seven-story Amaranth Apartment building at 11th Avenue and Gaylord commissioned by Denver developer MGL Partners LLC is nearly complete. The original building was bought in 2008 with the idea of building a luxury senior housing that had secured them a loan for $41.1, but the environment of the Great Recession wasn’t a good one for the luxury senior housing. MGL Partners were forced to rethink their idea. The new idea would be a seven story, 34-unit apartment building.

The project wasn’t very popular at first with Capitol Hill United Neighborhoods (CHUN). Their concerns were for the already impossible parking in the area to be aggravated by so many new tenants. But MGL showed its true strength by involving the residents, keeping them informed, obliging a more than necessary parking plan that would go beyond the city of Denver’s code of one parking space for every unit. Instead, MGL worked it out by building a two-level, below-grade parking garage with about 234 spaces. CHUN was more than happy with MGL’s dedication to the neighborhood and its new neighbors.

New Denver Apartment Buildings

After starting construction in 2012 with a 20-month construction period, the new apartment building is nearly complete. For months 11th Avenue was bustling with large cranes, demolition vehicles and dump trucks. The previous building was demolished in short time, the ground dug up and the building rebuild from bottom up.

The new Amaranth apartment building is a lovely new addition to this grand neighborhood. Flanked by Cheesman Park and Congress Park, snugly set alongside the Botanic Gardens, this masterpiece will certainly bring more neighbors to this bustling neighborhood.

And while MGL Partners build-a-new; just a of couple blocks down, Julie Koeppe Architects puts a new face on an ugly building at Marlene Apartments at 2315 12th Avenue.  The old building had its share of notorious residents who filled the rundown apartment building. A management company managed the Marlene apartments as the owner of the building resides out of state in New Mexico. As a result many of the tenants felt that the landlord cared little about the residents’ concerns. The worn-out carpets smelled of dust, the walls were bleak and the windows portrayed the building’s grim state. The updated Marlene Apartments building is predicted to be a vast improvement!

As old neighborhoods replenish old eyesores, new life is breathed into a continually growing and eclectic area of Denver. If you are interested in moving to the Congress Park area, contact one of our neighborhood experts at the New Era Group.

Beer Around the World Panel

beerWhile there are going to be many events during the Great American Beer Festival (GABF), one in particular marks a little shift in how American the GABF has become.

The American Beer Movement

One thing to take note is that the entire world is now looking to our movement in craft beer. When we began our craft beer movement at the beginning of the 1970s, it was truly a handful of pioneers with exceptional willpower that made it all happen. Men like Fitz Maytag who rekindled the old Anchor Brewing Company and would launch a movement that would influence the world 40 years later, or Jack McAuliffe, who would be an influential persona that would be imitated for his engineering and passion. Of course, Ken Grossman, creator of Sierra Nevada, who would put the US on the world beer map as perhaps the father of hoppy American beer. But more locally and very much the global kick starter is Charlie Papazian.

The Great American Beer Festival

Charlie Papazian moved to Boulder in 1981 and would bring the entire show into one ring, the Great American Beer Festival. All these men and many more have created a beer industry and culture that has never before been seen in world beer history. This influence is now being imitated around the world. As Italy, with all its history dating back as far as 900 BC, adds a new chapter in 1996 with beer. Or Germany, whose long standing brewing laws is now being scrutinized to keep up with craft beer. The American craft beer culture has brought longtime and legendary breweries from Belgium from the brink. Now they too are enjoying the resurgence of their beer as many craft American brewers have imitated their styles. But new beer cultures like Italy are emerging. Japan imports so many beers from around the world that they are now a big part of the movement. Brazil, Mexi-Cali, Peru, Argentina and Spain all have begun their craft beer movements.

The Craft Beer Scene in Denver

So it’s no surprise that during this great celebration of American craft beer there will be a panel of diplomats from around the world discussing their craft beer scenes here in Denver. Some of the attendants from 3 pm to 5 pm, October 2nd at Jazz@Jack’s, located at the Denver Pavilions on the 16th Street Mall, will be government representatives including top ambassadors/diplomats from Belgian, Canada, Japan and Mexico. Representing Italy will be locals Bryan Jansing and Paul Vismara who wrote the first book about the Italian craft beer movement, Italy: Beer Country. The event will be moderated by Ed Sealover, writer for the Denver Business Journal and author of Mountain Brew: A Guide to Colorado Breweries.

It’s certainly beer week in Colorado, but it’s a week being participated and watched by the entire world. I’ll toast to that.

September 2014 Market Happenings

Market Snapshot

Good news! Coming into the 4th quarter of 2014 the state of the metro Denver real estate market remains strong. According to the National Association of Realtors, Denver has the fastest moving housing market out of the largest 140 markets nationwide, with an average of only 27 days to sell a home. So, let's dive in and take a closer look.

In Graphic 1 you see two charts. On the left are metro Denver home prices from 2008 - 2012. On the right are the same home prices from 2012 - 2014 (reducing the clutter of all the previous years). These charts show us how the housing market has progressed over the past six years.


Denver Average Home Price 
Start by looking at the green line which represents housing prices in 2008. 2008 was at the depths of the national economic crisis when top notch Wall Street companies were failing on a weekly basis, the Federal Reserve was debating how to step in to avoid a complete calamity, and the Consumer Confidence Index was trending at 30 year lows. Everything looked bad, nothing looked good, people stopped buying homes, and the housing market crashed. Average home prices collapsed from $266,000 in June 2008 to $219,000 by November as it seemed like the world had stopped and the public lacked confidence the market would ever recover.

But, of course, it did. It turned out that the Nov. 2008 prices were the bottom of the market and by May 2009, average home prices were already back above $260,000. What's more, prices have continued rising ever since, up almost 50 percent since Nov. 2008.

Look now at the chart on the right which shows the housing market from 2012 - 2014. We see that prices surged in 2012 and 2013, climbing 22 percent from Jan. 2012 to Dec. 2013. Many of my clients asked during this period if the market was completely overheated and heading for a crash. My response was that the underlying market fundamentals remained strong and I could foresee only continued gains in the market for the next few years.

So far in 2014 prices have continued to rise, but somewhat more slowly than the previous two years. Prices are up 7 percent in the past 12 months, just a hair above the 6 percent average price increase for the past 42 years in the metro Denver housing market. If you were to ask me today the same question, are we in an overheated market heading for a crash, my answer would remain the same - market fundamentals are strong and I'm bullish on the near to midterm horizon. Here are only a few reasons why:

  1. Inventory of homes. Inventory remains near record lows. In a normal market we'd expect to have about 18,000 properties on the market. Today we have about half that. It's a simple supply/demand equation. If there's no supply the demand pushes prices up.
  2. Supply of Homes. Speaking of supply, it has just not kept up with demand. Many sellers are afraid to put their houses on the market for fear they won't be able to find a replacement home, the result being that our supply of homes for sale continues to be restricted. Back to the Economics 101 supply/demand curve, lots of demand and constricted supply makes for a strong housing market.
  3. Consumer Confidence has skyrocketed. Take a look at Graphic 2 which shows the Consumer Sentiment Index from 1975 to present day. What you see is that the housing market tracks very closely to consumer confidence. Up to 2007 consumer confidence was very high but plummeted between 2007 and 2010, dragging the housing market down with it. It bottomed out in 2010 and has been rising ever since, just like our housing market. As long as consumers remain confident, the housing market will continue to rise.
  4. Interest rates. Interest rates remain near all-time lows making metro Denver homes still relatively affordable. Yes, prices have risen a lot the past six years but since interest rates are so low, buyer's monthly mortgage payments remain affordable, especially compared to rents.
  5. Rents. Because rents continue to skyrocket! Every day, more and more renters are realizing it's cheaper for them to buy a home than continue to rent, further increasing the demand for housing purchases.
  6. Employment - Denver was ranked #1 out of the largest 150 cities nationwide by WalletHub.com for employment and earning opportunities. A strong economy further propels our housing market.

 

And these are just a few of the many dynamics that continue to strengthen our market. Feel free to call me if you'd like to discuss what the market's doing, where the market's going, and what you can do to take full advantage of this terrific housing market.

Quick Tips to Prepare Your Denver Home for the Fall Season

Colorado FallWith cooler temperatures in the Mile High City air and light dustings of snow teasing the Rocky Mountain Peaks, it’s that time of year to prepare your home and your family for the upcoming fall and winter season. By getting everything in order now, you’ll be able to enjoy your home this winter as you start spending more time inside. And, if you plan it just right, you’ll leave some extra time in your schedule to sneak away for a fall foliage road trip to enjoy the beauty of our colorful state as it welcomes the changing of the seasons.

Get Your Indoor Living Space Organized and Cozy

Even though winter is a popular time for Coloradans to get outside to enjoy skiing, snowboarding, sledding and snowshoeing, it still is a season that brings more time spent inside as temperatures and hours of sunlight decline. To keep from catching cabin fever during the long, winter days, spruce up and organize your home’s most used common areas – family room, kitchen, living room, etc. – so the areas are not only functional for your family’s daily needs, but comfortable and inviting.  And, with the school year now in session, it’s also a good time to designate adequate space for your kids to do their homework, work on school projects and just decompress after a long day at school.

Take Care of Outdoor Areas with Fall Clean Up, Maintenance

As gardening season comes to a close and your home’s outdoor vegetation is preparing for its hibernation stage, it’s a good time to cut back plants and trees so their vulnerable branches are prepared to withstand winter’s harsh weather. In preparation for the first freeze of the year, it’s also important to drain water features, hoses and sprinkler systems to minimize possible cracking and damage. To keep rain and snow from seeping into your house after the first storm of the year, checking your roof and gutters for holes and blockages can also be advantageous this time of year too. 

When it comes to outside and inside equipment for your home, it’s time to retire your cooling units for the summer and prepare your heating units for the winter months. If you’ve used an air conditioning system to keep you cool this summer, it’s important to cover it up if it resides outside or disable your window and mobile cooling units. It’s also a good idea to prepare your furnace for the upcoming cold weather now too by changing out filters and servicing your unit so it’s in tip-top shape when you endure the first below freezing winter night. And, if you have a fireplace in your home, make sure to get the chimney cleaned and the unit serviced before lighting your first fire of the season to minimize burning hazards.

Get Out and Enjoy Our Colorful State

With the cold months of winter in your near future, September is one of the best months to get outside in Colorado and enjoy all of the beautiful colors our state is known for. To catch a glimpse of the golden aspens our state is known for, you may need to drive up into the mountains during the earlier part of the month. Trail Ridge Road, the Maroon Bells and the Grand Mesa on the Western Slope are some of the best hot spots for enjoying the Colorado’s gorgeous gold, yellow and red fall colors.  But, if you wait until the later part of the month, you can really enjoy the beauty of our state by simply visiting some of the Denver area’s city and state parks such as Golden Gate Canyon State Park, the Peak-to-Peak Byway and Rocky Mountain National Park. For some fun fall foliage road trip ideas, check out these top 10 scenic areas.
