Columbine Knolls Real Estate is Healthy in 2015!

by John Basila

Columbine Knolls Real Estate had another good year in 2015.  Just like the rest of Littleton, the Columbine Knolls neighborhood benefited from high demand and increasing prices.

Overall, there were 100 homes sold in the Columbine Knolls neighborhoods in 2015.  This is comparable to the sales in the neighborhoods over the past few years.

The amount of time spent on market declined in 2015, with a Median Days on Market of just 10 Days.

With increased demand and the same inventory, Columbine Knolls Real Estate saw improved prices in 2015.

Although Median Sales Prices increased 9.6% over the prior year, that increase is still a little shy of the overall Littleton improvement of 12.3%.

It's still a very strong "Seller's Market" in Columbine Knolls Real Estate.  If you're considering selling your house, please visit for your complimentary pricing analysis.  You can also call us at (303)589-9034 or email us at



Columbine Hills Real Estate Continues To Improve in 2015!

by John Basila

Columbine Hills Real Estate had another strong year in 2015.  Home sales remained steady while prices continued to increase and the length of time on the market declined.

It was a "Seller's Market" again in 2015 in Columbine Hills. Similar to the rest of Littleton, the neighborhood had a very limited inventory, which helped push the Median Days On Market down.

Overall, there were 63 homes sold in Columbine Hills in 2015, which is comparable to prior years.

With limited inventory and high demand, prices increased again in Columbine Hills in 2015.

Columbine Hills Real Estate enjoyed a nice increase in Median Sales Price in 2015.  This 10.3% increase was slightly behind the average for Littleton, which was 12.3%. 

Demand remains high for properties in the Columbine Hills neighborhood.  If you're considering selling your house, please feel free to go to for a complimentary pricing analysis for your property.  You can also call us at (303)589-9034 or email us at


Columbine West Real Estate Has An Awesome 2015 !

by John Basila

Columbine West Real Estate performed very well in 2015.  Even though there were more properties sold in Columbine West than in prior years, prices continued to rise and the length of time properties spent on the market declined.

On average, there were 8 homes sold each month in 2015 in the Columbine West neighborhood. 

There was a huge demand for houses in Columbine West in 2015.  With limited inventory still being an issue, Columbine West was very much a "Seller's Market".  This helped the Median Sales Price increase by 14.3%, which was significantly higher than the growth of 12.3% seen throughout Littleton, CO. Click here for more information on Littleton Real Estate.

It's also taking a lot fewer days to sell a property in Columbine West.  In 2015, the Median Days on Market fell to 5 Days. 

The Columbine West Real Estate market is still very hot!  Currently, there are no properties "Active" in the MLS.  There are a number of Buyers looking, but nothing to choose from.  If a property is in good condition and priced right, it will sell very quickly.

You've probably heard it a lot throughout the last year - Denver Real Estate & Littleton Real Estate are in a strong Seller's Market, there's a limited inventory of homes for sale, prices for real estate are growing by leaps and bounds...

Denver Real Estate has been listed multiple times over the past year as a top market for price appreciation and speed of sale.  Did you know Littleton Real Estate slightly outperformed Denver Real Estate in 2015?

Littleton Real Estate prices for Single Family Residences (detached) grew by over 12% in 2015!!  The Median Value of Littleton homes sold was up to $371,000, slightly above Denver's Median Price of $342,500.

Littleton Real Estate continued to remain strong in 2015, with sales of Single Family Residences (detached) comparable to the past few years.

In a strong Seller's Market, you expect properties to sell quickly.  Littleton Real Estate was in such high demand in 2015, that properties lasted less than a week before they went "Under Contract".  Littleton Real Estate's 6 Days was slightly faster than Denver Real Estate's 8 Days.  We've developed a number of strategies that helped our Buyers & Sellers succeed in this frenzied market!

Littleton Real Estate continues to be strong, and we're still faced with a limited inventory of homes for sale.  If you're considering Selling Your House, please visit for a complimentary Property Evaluation.  You can also email or phone us for your customized report.

Denver Home Sales Remain Strong Through 2015

by John Basila

The Denver Real Estate Market continued to thrive during 2015.  Every few weeks last year, we'd see a story about how Denver was among the top markets in the nation for home sales, appreciation and speed of sales.

Denver Home Sales were stable in 2015, with 42,849 Single Family Residences (Detached) sold.

The Denver Real Estate Market continued to be a Strong Seller's Market in 2015.  Properties were literally flying off the shelves!!  Our "Days On Market" averaged 8 Days!!

Demand for Single Family Residences has been huge, and with our continued problem of Limited Inventory, prices grew by another 12.6%.

If you've been thinking of Selling Your House in Denver, now is the time to do it!!  Most of the pundits believe that our continued rate of price appreciation cannot be sustained, and that growth in 2016 will slow to the single digits.

Littleton Real Estate Market Is Improving

by John Basila

Awesome news for Sellers - the Littleton Real Estate Market Is Improving!!

Recent news from Metrolist, our local MLS, shows a continued lack of inventory and the beginning of price increases!

In February, similar to January, we had roughly 40% less inventory available to sell.  My Buyers have had a tough time finding decent properties.  When they do find something they like, we're starting to see multiple offers!  The Littleton Real Estate Market is Improving!

With this significant lack of supply, it's no wonder that prices improved 2% in February 2012 over last February.  I believe that the "bottom" of the market in Denver & Littleton has come and gone.

Columbine West
In Columbine West, we're down to ONE available Listing.  Since we normally sell 4 to 5 homes per month in Columbine West, that means we're down to a ONE WEEK SUPPLY!  It's definitely a great time to sell your home in Littleton and in the Columbine area!

Buyers have been coming out of the woodwork in the past few months...all they need is something to buy!  There's just a little excitement and motivation for Buyers, as Interest Rates are still very low and FHA Loans will be having more upfront fees after April 1st. 

If you've been waiting to Buy a Home or Sell your Home, now is a great time to be in the market.  The Littleton Real Estate Market Is Improving!  Call John today for a complimentary consultation.
