Interested in residential real estate in North Denver to Berthoud and Boulder to Brighton, then you’ve come to the right spot! Due South Realty agents live in this area, serve in this area and know this area. We can help elsewhere because we serve people first, but this is our sweet spot, the area we know well.
Areas for Discovery:
Below are customized searches for the following types of properties:
Single Family Residential (SFR)
This is the most common listing in the combined MLS’s of Denver’s MLS, REColorado and northern Colorado’s MLS of IRES. These are stand alone homes with generally under 10 acres of land. We’ve also priced this group under 1 million.
Townhomes and Condominiums
Right behind an SFR are Townhomes and Condominiums as far as popularity. The cities generally see more condos than townhomes. These are not the same type of property. Here are the basic differences:
You will not have any land in a condominium but could in a townhome. If you require a fee simple deed then you will be responsible for the land on the front, back and sides (depending on the unit). Generally both are not responsible for the exterior portion of their building, that is the HOA’s responsibility.
Generally in a townhome you share one or two walls, but do not have anyone living above you or below you. And again, you most likely will have a private yard. It is also rare in condos to own your own garage (they do exist and we know of several in our area) and more likely to own your own with a townhome.
Typically, condo’s HOA fees are larger because the HOA is responsible for more of the amenities, the outside and general maintenance.
Also the HOA rules and regulations for a condo are generally speaking more detailed and cumbersome than a townhomes. They need to ensure that the halls remain quiet.
Luxury Homes (SFR, Townhomes, and Condos)
It used to be that anything priced over $500,000 was considered a luxury home. Sorry to say that this standard has changed. When our average sale price of an SFR is over $500,000 then we can’t call that segment luxury. Although we’ll add that some of these close to 500 seem to be luxurious! For our purposes we’re looking at homes over one million dollars for our luxury market. This can include condos, although outside of Denver you will only find a few in Boulder.
We have plenty of farm properties in our region or acreage that puts you into the mountains. This will include properties that are designated as agricultural and usually will be over 20 acres.
There is still land to be bought up here. It is going fast and can be expensive. Do make sure you find out about access to water and sewer and if a well or a septic are required or not.
