Greenfield is located in Centennial, with some of this neighborhood in the City of Aurora.    It is located off Arapahoe Road & Picadilly in the South part of the Metro Denver area.   It is located in Cherry Creek School District, which is just one reason this neighborhood is popular! I like to stay on top of the statistics for the community, and nice to review the numbers every quarter.   Most months there are just one or two sales.  For the month of September, there were four sales.     For this size of the neighborhood, we don't usually see many homes go up for sale in Greenfield or Greenfield Estates.    Here is how September 2021 fared: 4 properties sold priced from $719,973 to $850,000 (last mo there were 2 sales) Average Days in MLS were 6 days  (last mo was 5)Sellers saw 100.74%...

This buyer is now the proud owner of this golf course community home.   Not sure what he will do with the pool.   He plans to get his vendors into the home quickly to get it updated and repaired.   Right now, the garage door and opener are not working.   Congratulations to my buyer!    This property was owned by the same owner since 1986 and let much of it go with no maintenance done unless they had to.   Good thing there is a new furnace and air conditioner!    Much of the home needs to be remodeled, which is exactly what my buyer was looking for.    He did ask if he could get the pool up and running again, but the 25' trees growing in it says probably nothing is salvageable.   I meant to take a photo..... Meadow Hills has a golf course, tennis courts, and all the homes have huge lots ...

Saying farewell to Summer is tough, but many enjoy the feel and smell of Fall.  The vibrant colors, the leaves, the pumpkins, pumpkin latte, and the sweater weather again. Buying your pumpkins at the local grocery store or hardware store, why not go to a pumpkin patch and select your OWN pumpkin!    You can get a unique pumpkin perfect for the photo op, or a regular pumpkin to carve - whatever your heart desires!    For a limited time only, the following areas will have not only pumpkins but decorating kits available while supplies last.    Find your perfect pumpkin to take home for free!   With Halloween around the corner, the City of Aurora wants to be sure everyone has a pumpkin to decorate.  Plan to arrive early, as again, supplies will be in short supply. Do you want a pumpkin for ...

 Wondering how the market is doing in The Conservatory?   Each month I do the statistics for this neighborhood to see how long homes are on the market, the number of homes sold, and how the home values are doing.  This is how you stay on top of a market shift or understand how quickly homes are going pending!  Below you will find the update for this month and what is currently available.  Homes in The Conservatory have basements, some are finished, some have mountain views, and were built from 2002 to 2016.  There are ranch models along with two-story and multi-level homes ranging in square footage from 1,387 to almost 3,000 above ground.  DR Horton/Continental was the original builder, but now Richmond, Standard Pacific, and Carpace have homes in this neighborhood also.  There are appr...

  Tollgate Crossing is a beautiful neighborhood of homes that was started by DR Horton that is conveniently located 30 minutes outside of Downtown Denver and is an easy commute to DIA.   You will also now find Oakwood Homes & Antero Homes building in Tollgate Crossing.   There are now some townhomes in the neighborhood also.  With many pocket parks throughout the neighborhood, it's not uncommon to see neighborhood families with kids playing and enjoying the Colorado weather.  Living in Tollgate Crossing you have retail outlets at Southlands Mall, retail and hospitals close but don't have the traffic you would expect in Denver.   Homes in this neighborhood were built from 2004-2019.   This neighborhood is located in the Cherry Creek School District.    You will find this neighborhood in ...

 This property was owned by the same owner since 1986 and let much of it go with no maintenance done, unless they had to.   Good thing there is a new furnace and air conditioner!    Much of the home needs to be remodeled, which is exactly what my buyer was looking for.    He did ask if he could get the pool up and running again, but the 25' trees growing in it says probably nothing is savagable.   I meant to take a photo..... Meadow Hills has a golf course, tennis courts and all the homes have huge lots from .50 to one acre.    It is also located in Cherry Creek School District, which is highly acclaimed and one of the top school districts in Colorado.This will be a quick closing, set to close next week.

 When a new community is nearing close-out, the model home is put on the market.    Meritage accepted her offer and accepted her contingency to sell her home.  These are paired townhomes with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and a 2-car attached garage.   Meritage Homes is known for building very energy-efficient green homes. The builder offered all the furniture, decor and even the towels in the bathroom for a great price, which my Buyer agreed to. Today she closed on her beautiful new property, and looking forward to moving into her new home!
