Jarrod P. from Denver, CO says: ”INCREDIBLE SERVICE! I am a small business owner and I know excellent customer service – and Todd goes above and beyond. He has been called twice since our initial repair. The first time he showed up at 7pm the evening I called him, in the pouring rain nonetheless, to make sure we had a working washer. Tonight, our washer started acting up once again. I called Todd and left a message. He called me back right away and came over at 8pm on a SUNDAY evening to make sure we had a working washer. You don’t find service like this in many places. Before contacting a monster appliance repair place, I would strongly recommend you contact Todd at Appliance Expert, LLC. You get one-on-one service. He is prompt, friendly and knows what he’s doing. Give this guy a try!”
Pedro P. from San Francisco, CO says: “Todd was awesome. Showed up on time, extremely knowledgeable, and even though the part I needed wasn’t available, Todd ordered it for me and installed it when it became available without me having to follow up. Very honest, fair prices, would use again.”
Jason R. from Jacksonville, FL says: “Todd is the guy you’ll work with here. He was quick to return my call, set me up for appt., came over to fix the dryer, and did not charge me an arm and a leg for the three necessary repairs. He took care of my condo like it was his own. I would definitely work with him again and recommend you use him for any washer/dryer issues. This guy is first class all the way!”
With the market having next to no inventory, properties coming on the market Monday and sold by Wednesday, and multiple offers left and right it’s no wonder that new construction is in popular demand. The two big questions asked when looking at new construction are where to build and who to build with. In this article we’ll be tackling where to build.
There are some great communities being developed across the Denver Metro area where you can still do new construction. Some communities are brand new and others have been around since the late nineties. There are a lot of factors that go in to choosing where you wish to build: location, city, communities, school district, and price point stand out as the most asked questions.
In Denver you have Stapleton. Stapleton is a great community with their own schools, it’s separated off from surrounding Denver neighborhoods, and you have a wide variety of builders available. Currently the east side of Stapleton, Bluff Lake, is nearing completion. The next project will be to move into the Conservatory which is the next area of Stapleton that’s just north of I-70. This area has a future development for the next five years.
East of Stapleton is the Green Valley Ranch community. This is a massive project that’s been in development since the late nineties and with this seller’s market Green Valley is not only seeing a boom in resale but in new construction. Green Valley Ranch is owned exclusively by Oakwood Homes and they have multiple developments in progress which should keep building going for the next three to five years.
In the Aurora / Centennial area or Unincorporated Arapahoe you have the Copper Leaf community. Copper leaf has just begun construction over the past several years with future developments expecting to go for the next ten years. Richmond American Homes is the exclusive builder for this development with prices ranging from mid two hundreds and up to four and five hundred thousand.
South East of Copper Leaf is The Wheatlands development. This area has a multitude of builders and goes up into Beacon Point around the Aurora Reservoir. Most of the Beacon Point has been developed and same goes for Tallyn’s Reach. However The Wheatlands is the primary new focus for development and Richmond American Homes has the most lots for sale.
There is a brand new luxury home community located in Lone Tree. This is being presented by Century Communities and it’s a one of a kind. For buyers looking for a higher price point, with larger lots, and square footage this might be the best new construction community in the entire Denver Metro Area.
No matter where you wish to live you can always look at new construction as an option. If you’re considering new construction don’t hesitate to contact myself or my team for full representation. We are the new construction experts.
In a seller’s market, there is a practice known as ‘tying up the property’. When a good listing comes on the market, there can be a bit of frenzy. Everyone wants to get a look at it. The realtors want to do a good job and make sure that they secure the property for their client. No one really wants to get into a bidding war (except the seller of course), but everyone wants to be the winning bid for the property. Thus comes in the idea of tying up the property.
What this means is that some buyers will throw out extremely favorable terms or an incredibly high purchase price in an attempt to take all the other buyers out of the equation. When the seller sees the offer and finds that this particular one is so far head and tails above the others, it’s clear that they should accept it. The problem is that the buyer may not really be serious about buying the property. They may just be putting it under contract to buy themselves some time to see if they really want to go through with it. They could still be looking for something better, they could still be waiting to hear from a homeowner on a previous offer, or they could just decide that they didn’t want to pay that much. Whatever the reason, they tie up the property for a certain amount of time and then terminate on one of their contingencies, like inspection. This does not happen a lot with people looking for a primary residence, but happens more with investors.
This can really hurt sellers who may have their property off the market for two weeks or more during the peak of the selling season. The way to avoid this is for your agent to find out as much information about the buyer, their reason for buying, and why they are buying in this neighborhood. The agent should also speak with the lender and ask as many questions as they will divulge about the buyer’s ability to purchase the property. If you have any red flags, be cautious about accepting that offer. Remember the old saying, “if it sounds too good to be true, chances are it is!”
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is located at 7301 S Santa Fe Dr, Ste 850, Littleton, CO 80120. As the Alamo Drafthouse grows, they remain dedicated to keeping the movie-watching experience safe for movie fans, serving quality food and drinks, and upholding high presentation standards. They are also striving to achieve long term goals by expanding the theater to new neighborhoods.
Kat K. from Cedar Park, TX says: ” We went to Alamo tonight, and got seated up on the top row. Shortly after we saw down, a few minutes before the movie, three people sat down a few seats down on our row. It was obvious from the loud conversation that they had taken their mom to see Gatsby. One girl left, there was discussion of two more people in their party taking the seats between them and us. While she was gone, the mom and son were still talking loudly and not paying attention to the screen, which CLEARLY stated that there was a NO TALKING policy…they didn’t hear it because they were talking. The girl returned, and shortly after the movie started (another “no-no” at Alamo…patrons are not supposed to be allowed in the movie after it starts), the other two people arrived. There was laughing and talking…they got out their phone and were texting. At one point someone went “SHHHHH” really loudly, and I joined in, and whispered to them that they could get kicked out for talking, and they said “we know.” However, these people talked all through the movie…we wanted to alert our server, but were a little shy about it. The mom started talking again (oh wait…did she ever stop??), and an employee came over and asked them to please stop. That didn’t shut them up. Apparently they were given a second warning. Eventually, another employee came over and asked them to leave the theater. An employee came over to us and apologized as they cleared their glasses. At the end of the movie, we told the employee that they had been bothering us but that we didn’t report it…he said “that’s okay, I saw them talking throughout the movie.” I was REALLY impressed that the employees noticed that these inconsiderate people were bothering other patrons. If they’d only have shut up long enough to watch the “DON’T TALK” message, perhaps it wouldn’t have been an issue. Way to go, Alamo!”
Sara R. from Denver, CO says: “Saw Gatsby on opening night here ! Great atmosphere. Great food- the artichoke spinach dip and chips were divine. It was truly the best cinematic experience I have ever had. Exceptional screen and sound quality and Great prices. I am from LA — Hollywood in fact– and the alamo drafthouse cinema can teach those theaters (including arclight) a lesson in how films should be viewed. I will be returning on a date soon!”
Glen M. from Golden, CO says: “We had such a wonderful time last sunday seeing Iron Man 3. Knowing that you are protected from the talking and cell phone use running rampant in other theaters and that you are in a room of like minded movie lovers is so freeing. Huge menu, especially nice with the addition of a weekend brunch menu, the BLT and French Toast were superb as well as the wait staff. We can’t wait to return.”
With all the communities in development around the Denver Metro Area you’ll find there are quite a few builders to choose from. This can get complicated for buyers since they may not know the styles that each builder specializes in, the communities they work out of, and the builder’s reputations. Let’s take a moment and look at all the builders throughout the Denver Metro area.
The largest new construction builder in the Denver Metro area would be Richmond Homes. Richmond has been around for quite some time and start in the mid two hundreds and go into the four hundred thousand price tag. They are one of the few builders that will put in a radon mitigation system standard in all homes with a basement. Their communities in Wheatlands and CopperLeaf are their staple communities but they do have construction as far north as Thornton and south as Castle Rock.
Parkwood Homes is one of the most innovative builders in Colorado because they don’t offer any packages with their purchase of their house instead everything is custom and I do mean everything. Their style has a New Hampshire and east coast feel. Parkwood is building exclusively out of Stapleton and currently has lots available for sale in the Conservatory.
Infinity Home Collection is also building in Stapleton’s Conservatory. Infinity offers some really unique designs. While they don’t offer as custom items for homes as other builders they do give you some amazing name brands for standard options in the home. They also are the leading builders for making contemporary and modern design homes; breaking the mold from the classic and traditional.
Oakwood is known for making starter homes. Their community in Green Valley Ranch is still growing and they range from the low one hundreds into the mid three hundred thousand range. They offer packages, like Richmond, but they try to build the home as green as they can.
Century Communities got their start making lower end paired homes but have recently branched out. With developments through Beacon Point and Wheatlands they offer a variety of new construction options. Their recent endeavor has been in the luxury new construction market with their Montecito.
Toll Brothers have been around for a number of years and they specialize in upper end custom homes. They are finishing development in Tallyn’s Reach but have home sites in Highlands Ranch, Solterra, Lone Tree, and Parker.
There are quite a few other builders available throughout the Denver Metro area but the ones listed above produce some of the highest volume of new construction in Colorado. For a complete list please contact me or The Colorado Dream House Team. Let us help you with all your new construction needs.
