Denver Faces a Condo Crunch | Colorado Real Estate

Denver Real Estate Faces Condo Crunch With Rising Demand

At the end of the summer, the latest data reveals that the Denver real estate market is on a high with the rising demand for condominiums. At the same time, there is a shortage of new supply. A Denver Metro Association of Realtors report shows that the typical time for condos in the market in the Denver area decreased to 26 days from 36 days the previous year, in the month of July. This indicates a drop of 31 percent. On the other hand, during the same time, the average selling price was up by 11%, reaching $224,421.

Fillmore Residences, Cherry Creek

At present, Denver does not have many condo building projects in hand. Also, the ones that are currently under construction are primarily for renting rather than for selling purposes. One such project is the Fillmore Residences located in Cherry Creek area. The project has the unique feature of being built atop an already constructed parking structure. Developers associated with the project revealed that the Fillmore Plaza residences will be between Milwaukee streets and Fillmore, alongside the East 2nd Avenue.

The final structure will be a three-story building constructed over the parking lot. It will have a total of 27 residential units along with a retail space (on the ground floor) covering an area of 6,700 square feet. Experts in the real estate industry believe that it is likely that the parking structure will also be renovated to enhance the overall appeal and exterior of Fillmore Residences.

Denver Rents on a High

In the meanwhile, Denver real estate news reveals that as a result of the increasing rents in the area, several tenants are unable to put aside money for making a down payment on the purchase of a home.

On Thursday, a latest study was released which termed Denver rents to be “highly unaffordable.” It also showed that the local area renters are using a major chuck of their income (almost 31.8 percent) on rental. This figure has remained at a 21.6 percent in the past years, and rents have become much less affordable now compared to earlier years.

Home buyers in the Denver area utilize 18.9 percent of their earnings on the average home, as compared to the historic 21.6 percent. This means that purchasing a home is now more affordable.

Buying a luxury condo in Denver is a great option now given its prime location and the dramatic increase of new residential construction projects.  This is especially tru for such supply-constrained areas as Cherry Creek North.
