Denver Real Estate Trends You Should Know

September 7, 2016

Are you thinking of selling your home? There are certain features of a home that can add value, especially on the real estate market in Denver. Before you sell, make sure you’re familiar with the latest Denver real estate market trends:

Outdoor space.

People love living in Denver because of the great outdoors, so if your home has a lot of space for residents to enjoy nature, it will probably be worth more on the market. Emphasize the spacious porch, upstairs balcony and deck in your listing to draw buyers in and sell your home quickly on the Denver real estate market. If you’ve spent a lot of time on your landscaping, make sure your agent captures photos to showcase your hard work. The more you can provide the outdoor lifestyle to buyers, the better.

Sell the neighborhood.
Denver real estate buyers want more than just the house, they want the whole package. If you live in a neighborhood with plenty of nature trails, community amenities, and friendly neighbors, then be sure to mention all of these features in your listing. You should also mention if your home is near any trendy restaurants or retailers, especially if they’re just walking distance away. Buyers love being near all the action in Denver, and although you may take all of this for granted, buyers definitely will not.

Green appliances.
Today’s buyers are greener than ever before, so if your home is upgraded with green appliances, you may be able to increase the asking price of your home. Buyers are looking for energy efficient appliances, added insulation and smart home features such as programmable thermostats or remote controlled lighting. This could be a huge selling point for your home, especially for younger, eco-conscious buyers. Not only do these help new buyers live a greener lifestyle, but they can also reduce monthly bills.

Some buyers may be interested in fixer uppers, but on the Denver real estate market, buyers want a home that has been properly cared for and maintained. If there are any home improvement projects you have been putting off for years, talk to your real estate agent about whether or not you should complete them before listing your home. Some projects can increase the value of your home and be the difference between a home that is sold quickly and one that sits on the market for months. However, other home improvement projects may not make much of a difference to the buyer. That’s why you should always consult with your agent to discuss whether it’s worth it or not before you make the investment.
