Jennifer Markus, a resident of Greenwood Village and accomplished real estate professional with Kentwood Real Estate DTC, sees a slight softening in an otherwise frenetic market. “Working primarily the ‘Villages’ market, I see homes staying active a bit longer than last year,” she said. “Bidding wars and multiple offer situations have slowed since the start of our strong selling season. Buyers are still plentiful, but are taking more time to find their perfect ‘Dream’ home.”
Currently there are 130 residential listings and 40 land listings in Cherry Hills Village and Greenwood Village. Kentwood Real Estate enjoys a 32 percent market share with 55 active listings.

Kentwood Real Estate’s July 2015 Luxury Market Recap for residential and condominium properties shows a total of 803 million dollar listings in metro Denver, with Kentwood Real Estate enjoying an 18 percent market share with 145 active million dollar listings.
“After an increase in closed sales volume for July, the high-end luxury market is showing little if any signs of cooling off, even as local temperatures climb to the 90’s,” said Jon Gordon, a top producing Broker Associate with Kentwood Real Estate DTC. “It’s not surprising to see the average sold price decline only slightly, as the inventory of luxury properties increases. This makes for an active market and great scenario for buyers. This increase in sales volume and market activity is a little unusual in July given that buyers are often vacationing and focused on enjoying the summer. I’ve seen this only a few times in my 25-plus years at Kentwood working in the luxury home market.”
“The luxury condominium market is certainly hot, with seller’s recognizing that properties in pristine condition with beautiful finishes and move-in ready are what’s really in demand,” Gordon continued. “That said, pricing properties correctly is still essential.”
Closed sales for single-family luxury homes increased 14.1 percent in July 2015 compared to July last year. Average days on the market increased 18.4 percent to 90, while the average sold priced decreased 2.3 percent to $1,524,919.
