Back from Deployment Listing Review: 1870 Alpine Drive

June 19, 2017

Good Afternoon Everyone!

After a long two weeks of deployment with the Colorado Air National Guard I am ready to get back into business!
Today we are looking at a home that has been on the market for a few months to point out a tricky aspect of the Real Estate Business: Timing. At 1870 Alpine Drive in Vista Ridge is a beautiful five bedroom, three bedroom home with over 4500 square feet, an unfinished basement and a three car garage. This home has been finished to the nines in nearly every possible way. The kitchen, floors and rooms have all been upgraded throughout and the backyard is a well landscaped oasis in Vista Ridge. 

Sadly, the basement is a weak point being both small and unfinished, but that is a small blemish especially when considering that the home’s principle competitors in the neighborhood also lack finished basements. 

This home is fantastic, but it has a problem: it is one of many at it’s price point. In the current market, Agents are advising sellers that this is the time to sell, and they aren’t wrong; summer is historically the best time to sell a property. However, in this particular instance, everyone in Vista Ridge at the 600-700k price point seemed to have taken the advice at the same time with a stunning 10 homes on the market. Now individual homes are lost in the mess of many competitors and while the 600k range is historically slower than lower ranges, this abundance of homes is creating a further slowdown. 

Always have your Agent check the neighborhood for listings that will be direct competitors to yours so you can hopefully avoid this kind of problem! This home is beautiful and will have no problem selling, but now it’s a matter of when and for how much. 

Let me know what you think!
