What this report tells you:  Compared to past years, February's median days on market of only 42 is a huge improvement.  If that trend continues, homes in this price point will begin to move. But, as so many have said before, one statistic is not a trend.  It's a number to watch, although right now there's nearly a year's supply of Arvada homes on the market at $500,000+.

The following information was obtained from Metrolist on March 1, 2012.  This report includes only detached single family Arvada homes listed or sold for more than $500,000.  I’m using the term ‘distressed sales’ to refer to short sales and foreclosures.

  • Currently, there are 43 Arvada homes in this price range for sale, one is a short sale, 2 are foreclosures.  That's a 7% rate of distressed sales, and nearly an 11-month supply of homes on the market in this price range.

  • 4 Arvada homes sold in February 2012 at $500,000+. None were short sales, one was a foreclosure, for a 25% distressed rate.  Homes were on the market for  a median of 42 days before going under contract.

I write posts on real estate issues and local events in the Denver metro area, especially those *communities between Denver and Boulder, as a public service. My hope is to give people an idea of the ‘flavor’ of our community, in case they’re new or moving to the Denver area.

I am a residential real estate agent, happily helping folks buy a house or sell a house in the beautiful and friendly *suburbs northwest of Denver.

*Arvada, Broomfield, Lafayette, Louisville, Superior, Westminster; also Thornton, Golden, Wheat Ridge, Northglen, Lakewood
