Looks like the beginning of 2013 is starting a lot like the way 2012 ended for luxury home sales in metro Denver: we will call this strong.
There were 12 percent more sales of homes costing more than $1 million in January in the Denver area, according to a report released Monday. Buyers bought 28 such homes last month, compared
to the 25 sold in January 2012.
Those homes were worth $40.8 million, a 14 percent increase over the dollar volume moved in the same month last year.
The average sales price for those home increased slightly year-over-year, from $1.43 million in 2012 to $1.46 million.
The average days on the market continued to fall, from 239 in January 2012 to 214 last month.
The most expensive home sold last month was for $4.1 million.

Carmelo Anthony has finally sold his mega mansion at 6965 S. Polo Ridge Dr.in Littleton. This closed June 10, 2011 for $6,180,000 to Polo Holdings LLC. What is interesting is the secrecy of the name of the buyer, in todays market. This LLC was formed in December 2010 and Mark Senn is the registered agent, his office is on California Street, and Carmelo signed the Warranty deed in Nassau County of New York.
We all remember the previous coach of the Denver Broncos, Josh McDaniels, and he sold his mansion located in The Preserve of Greenwood Village. He received $1,950,000 far less than the asking price of 2.2 million, and like most of the regular public received Half a Million less than what they paid in May of 2009.
Our previous Denver Bronco quarterback, Jay Cutler finally sold his home located in the Pinery, and he received $1,000,000 and this was $340,000 less than what he paid for and this was after 308 days on the market.

The only homes charging a fee are the high-end “Dream Homes,” which require a one-time $5 donation to see.
In another change, the local home show will feature residences in different communities, as it did last year, but those for-sale homes will be in a variety of price ranges ― starting at $188,900 and going to $6.3 million.
Last year was the first time the HBA staged the parade at multiple neighborhoods, because the recession has caused builders to cut back on the number of homes they produce. All the homes, like last year are ones that the builders had trouble selling. This will not be a “green” event as the public will be driving all over Denver to see the homes, and racking up lots of miles on their cars, and lots of fuel. Previously, the parade was at a single residential development, where you could save on gas, by driving tothe one neighborhood.
But the 2009 parade, called “The Denver Luxury Home Tour,” featured only homes selling for $1 million-plus in areas such as Cherry Creek Village, Stapleton, and Pradera and The Timbers in Parker.
“This broad range of new homes offers a price point for almost every category, from the first-time homebuyer, step-up buyer and empty-nester to the luxury, custom buyer,” Vicki Pelletier, the HBA’s vice president of operations, said in a statement.
This year’s parade will include 58 homes that are for sale throughout the metro area. Twenty-one area cities will be represented ― from Arvada and Broomfield to Castle Rock and Highlands Ranch ― and Aurora will feature the most homes, at 11. We have yet not calculated the miles you will incure to visit all the homes.
Of the parade houses, 25 are custom homes and eight are upscale Dream Homes with asking prices of $1 million-$6.3 million.
This year’s parade sponsors are Douglas County-based furniture-store chain American Furniture Warehouse and Wells Fargo Home Mortgage.
For a discussion of the homes to see, call me at 303-888-2488.

There are rumors and speculation of what the Fed will do come April 1, 2010, as the word on the street may be that they will no longer buy mortgage backed securities. This could translate into higher mortgages for the jumbo loans, those over $413,000. Advise: if you do not have tons of cash, but great credit, it would be a smart financial decision to lock in our low rates, now, as after April Fools, the conforming jumbos will get more expensive. We don’t know how high, but it is safe to say that the rates will not go down.
So with Denver’s already great values of homes on the market, along with historical low rates, now will the time to plan for your homebuying future.
As always, we welcome your comments, or call me at 303-888-2488 to discuss your situation.
