The Latest Residential Real Estate Market Report for Cherry Creek North


Helping you paint the picture and make sense of your local real estate market trends:

Cherry Creek North experienced an increase in value capital appreciation, and an increase in the volume of sales in 2015. However, homes did stay on the market for a longer period of time when compared to the same period in 2014.

There could be several factors that contribute to that slower turnover, but accurate sales price valuations is usually the reason homes lag a bit in a robust market. Take a quick look at this short video that provides a good explanation of Cherry Creek North home sales during 2016:   (Please Click on Image Below for Market Update Video)

Denver Residential Real Estate 2015 Year-End Market Report

Liv Sotheby’s International Realty 2015 Year-End Market Report:

Metropolitan Denver experienced another exceptional rise in property values. One interesting aspect of the data was the sharp rise in the value of attached properties. However, detached homes also realized an impressive increase in value.

There are many factors that have contributed to the rise in metro Denver home values, but the most prominent contributors appear to be an increase in population, otherwise referred to as “net migration.”  However, high demand and low inventories of homes remains the primary reason for the rise in residential housing values.

Most forecasts for 2016 home values predict that this trend will continue.  The prevailing belief is that 2016 home values will continue to increase, but they will increase at a bit of a decreasing rate from the previous year.

Additional Medical Technology

I’m excited and often awestruck by the current rapid advances in medical technology. I have added an exciting video below for those who have not yet become knowledgeable about the advancing science of CRISPR. Please take a few minutes to watch this when you have some free time.

On my last news post I gave a shout-out to the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center (UCHSC) at the Anschutz Medical Campus. The physicians and scientist working there are saving lives and changing the world of medicine. I’ve had the pleasure to meet and work with many of the talented staff at the UCHSC, and I find them to be universally professional and compassionate.

Health 10

The UCHSC has achieved national acclaim from many sources, including an article published in US World and News Report, which the hospital was nationally ranked as 11th in 40 adult medical specialties, and is regionally ranked as the number 1 in Colorado and number 1 in Denver as the best hospital and medical research center. This is impressive, and a genuine asset to the metro Denver area.

I have confidently given personal referrals to friends and family to Peter Butrick, MD, the Division Head of the Cardiology Department at the UCHSC, and to many of the incredibly talented staff of physicians in that department. Additionally, Mark Nehler, MD, a professor and surgeon at the UCHSC has been a trusted medical advisor for myself and so many others in Denver for numerious years. Finally, Bennie Lindeque, MD, Ph.D, the orthopedic oncology surgeon who treated my stepson, Spenser is a world renowned physician who practices medicine at the UCHSC.

I would love to give specific testimonials to many more physicians and scientists at the UCHSC, and I will comment on each one of them in future news posts, but time and space requires that I include them in appropriate future posts.

As promised, please enjoy the talk below for a detailed description of CRISPR:
