What this report tells you:  This price range is, of course, where you find the 'mother lode' of foreclosures, and even a few short sales.  The percentage of Arvada homes that sold as foreclosures and short sales has been stable over the past 3 years, days on market has been erratic.  There is only a 1-month supply of homes in this price range, and that is good news for investors and folks who want small entry level or 'fixer' houses.

The following information was obtained from Metrolist on May 10, 2012.  

This report includes only detached single family Arvada homes listed or sold for $150,000 or less.  (I'm using the term 'distressed sales' to refer to short sales and foreclosures. A 'regular' sale may also have been 'distressed' in the sense that the home was in need of major work.)arvada homes denver boulder real estate market 

  • Currently, there are 8 Arvada homes for sale in this price range. Two of those homes is a foreclosure, two are short sales, so 50% of all homes available in the under $150,000 price range are distressed sales.

Thank you, Karen.  Not only for the comment, but noting your comment also helped me see my typo in the title.  Gotta fix that now!
