Although many home buyers love the vintage and historic homes in Denver, there’s also a demand for new construction. From the sleek hardwood floors to the gleaming stainless steel appliances , new homes hold a major appeal. Real estate experts say aspiring home buyers can expect a number of new developments in 2015 and beyond. The latest Colorado real estate news indicates the Douglas County Board of County Commissioners approved the first phase of Sterling Ranch, a community that will begin with 660 single-family homes in northwest Douglas County. But there are other important developments on the horizon as well.
Sterling Ranch will be a big deal for Denver-area residents. According to an article by the Denver Business Journal, once developers complete it in another 20 years, Sterling Ranch will include more than 12,000 homes. The first neighborhood within Sterling Ranch to break ground is Providence Village. The neighborhood will boast a school, recreation center, church, 144 homes and 85 acres of conservation land.
Other important Colorado real estate news includes the plans for a redevelopment site in Littleton. Century Homes Inc. and Richmond American Homes are the two homebuilders planning to build on a 77-acre redevelopment site previously owned by Marathon Oil. The community will include 461 homes, according to a piece by The Denver Business Journal. The site, named Littleton Village, was the largest one available for development.
Home sales are exceeding expectations in the Stapleton neighborhood in the Denver metro area with the master-planned community recently receiving a high rank. Robert Charles Lesser & Co. ranked the community No. 6 in the country in the category of best-selling communities.
