Beacon Point - Aurora, CO  80016


You will find Beacon Point East of E-470 and North of Smoky Hill in Southeast Aurora,  Arapahoe County.   Beacon Point has been a highly sought-after neighborhood due to the executive homes and the location close to Aurora Reservoir and all within Cherry Creek School District.   Beacon Point is located in zip code 80016.  There are approximately 875 homes in Beacon Point.  And, although this is a larger neighborhood, we don't see much activity.  Homeowners enjoy living in Beacon Point with the amenities and surrounding beauty!


Homes in Beacon Point range from 1,874 square feet to 6,718 finished square feet and range in price from $450,000 and some now topping the $1 million price point.    Homes were built from 2005 to 2017.   You will find a few homes with a 2-car garage, most have 3-car garages and a few rare 4-car garages.  


You will find homes built by Century, Engle, Lennar, and Century Communities.

Hi Joan,

I think you make a very important point.  Inventory is going up everywhere, but Beacon point has not seen an influx of listings.  To me, the amount of inventory in a given community or neighborhood has a big influence on positioning a new listing.

Sheri, plus this time of year in our area is usually slower than the earlier this spring.

Good morning, Joan... that is the issue here in many Charlotte neighborhoods, as well... new listings remain low. I believe when that is the case, pricing and marketing a property right will allow for it to beat the market averages in terms of selling. I see a lot of agents still pricing for one year ago and marketing as if they didn't need to market a year ago.

And this is why sellers and buyers need to work with a local expert - one who knows inventory is increasing but not in Beacon Point!

Nina, we are still seeing prices too high, and many are reducing after a week or so, with few showings.

thanks for the market update.  We are seeing some softening in the DC metro area too.  Markets go up and they come down and sometimes they just take a deep breath! We will make it through this shift too!
