Golden Listings

No Comments

The Golden housing market is HOT right now and has been for quite a while. Listings are going for full price and most are being sold over asking price. It is a very frustrating market for all parties. Buyers get discouraged, agents have to be on-call at all times (which is impossible to do) and the sellers are very distraught with so many decisions to make. It is  a crazy time to buy and a fantastic time to sell your home – If  I can assist you in any way please do not hesitate to contact us – Barb Ecker

New Listing near Wheat Ridge and Golden

No Comments

Check out my latest listing on the border of Golden and Wheatridge.  I am very impressed with this 4 bedroom 5 bath home with over 5,000 sq feet and one of a kind finishes.  Everything from the lighting, the kitchen, the storage throughout the house, to the dance studio downstairs is top notch.

New Housing Development Planned near Golden, CO by Lennar Homes

No Comments

It appears that another housing development will soon be sprouting up near Golden, CO.   With the Wildhorse Subdivision near 93 and 58th ave being a major success, it is no surprise that other developers would want to take advantage of building new homes in this popular area.  With its proximity to downtown Golden (4 miles), as well as open space areas including White Ranch, and North Table Mountain, this new housing development called Table Rock Ridge has the potential to be a huge hit.  The parcel of land just north of 58th ave and 93 was recently rezoned to allow for up to 217 single family homes and contain 30% open space in its 65 acre site.   This new subdivision would also host an extension of the Van Bibber Creek Trail, and keep many of the trees that still line the creek.  Ground has now been broken and they are currently clearing land.  I would assume we will begin to see some models being built in the next month or two along with a sales trailer.  Feel free to contact me for more information, or to seek representation before heading over to check out any homes.  I will stay up to date with the latest information and pricing.

In the meantime, The Wildhorse Subdivision by Taylor Morrison has a few lots and a few spec homes left.  Now would be the time to get in there to take a look before they are gone.
