Read on for a report on Arvada Home Sales:

arvada homes, denver boulder real estate, how to sell house, how to buy house, sellers marketOut of the 30 Arvada homes sold in April 2013 between $400,000 and $500,000, six were new construction.  That's quite a bit of competition for re-sale homes.

Eleven of the Arvada homes sold in April closed at or above list price.

The upswing in the number of homes sold continued its, 30 homes compared to 17 homes in April of 2012.  Plus, the inventory has whittled down to just over a month, compared to a 3-month inventory just two months ago.

How to sell a house in this price range:  Most Arvada homes in this price range are lovely, but little things can still make a difference.  Make sure the home shows beautifully every time, having soft music playing creates a welcoming mood.

How to buy a house in this price range:  Keep the focus on the most important features that you have had in mind even before you started your search.  It's easy to get distracted by the 'glitz' of some of these homes, and let yourself give up on other, more important features.

This report includes only detached single family Arvada homes listed or sold between $400,000 and $500,000.  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.

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.  Read what past clients have said about me.
