Town of Larkspur Colorado - Market Update April 2020

The Town of Larkspur is located 40 miles south of Denver and West of I-25.   The town was incorporated in 1979 and today is known for the Renaissance Festival held every year in Larkspur and the Yogi Bear's Jellystone Campground.   Most homes in Larkspur are on lots of one acre or more and surrounded by trees.   You will see lots of wildlife - deer, mountain lions, bears (brown & black), fox, coyotes and lots of birds. 

 

The population of Larkspur is quite low, keeping "traffic" to a minimum.  Some in the neighborhood of Sage Port have half acres, and in Douglas Park, there are some up to 70 acres.  Homes are on the West side of Larkspur are nestled at the base of the foothills.    Most homes are on wooded lots and give homes the mountain feel.  You also will find some homes atop a hill with FABULOUS mountain views!

 

Going to the grocery store will require a trip to Castle Rock, and depending on where in the town you live, it could be 15 minutes.    There isn't much in the "town", but a gas station, post office, three restaurants, and of course two golf courses with restaurants.   Bear Dance Golf Course is closer to I-25, and Perry Park Golf Course is on the West side of town.

  

  

Here is what happened in April 2020 - 

11 properties sold ranging in price from $535,000 to $890,000

Days in MLS were 26 average days

Sellers saw 99.13% to list price

Homes sold were built from 1978 to 2017

 

Late March we saw positive cases of COVID-19 in Denver, and our Governor mandated all residents to "Stay at Home".   In the beginning, real estate was deemed as essential, but an incident happened, and the Attorney General changed that to NO IN-PERSON showings.   This virus did not affect Larkspur's sales for April, and most of the month contracts were written sight unseen, then had a visual showing once it went pending.

The BEST PART about Larkspur is the view as you drop down into Perry Park.  It is lush, green and instantly gives you a sense of calm.   Driving down the road, and seeing the deer roam around, hear NO traffic, honking, etc, just the sounds of nature.    It is beautiful!

  

Looking to lower your stress level, live on some acreage, and enjoy wildlife?  Call me.

Good morning, Joan... I'm all for lowering stress levels... but in my case that won't mean moving to a large property... worrying about caring for it would increase my stress levels! :)

Hello Joan - your post about Larkspur real estate and your mention of the yearly Renaissance Festival held there made me think of a similar event in our area. I understand the need by many for the need of a simpler life.

Nina Hollander this is a location I would love to show you when you are in CO again, it is so beautiful.   I wouldn't want to take care of acres of land either at this point in my life.
