In my world of Highlands Ranch real estate, $300,0000 seems to have been the magic number this week.  I have had numerous inquiries regarding homes around that price range, I have shown numerous homes around that number and I took a listing right about there as well. So I thought with that in mind I would take a closer look at what Highlands Ranch homes are available around the $300,000 mark. So for the use of this glimpse - I will look at $299,000 to $310,000 in Highlands Ranch.   Currently, today on March 29th, there 28 single family homes available for sale in Highlands Ranch in that price range.  Their square footage ranges from 1475 to 2287 square feet.  There  are many neighborhoods in Highlands Ranch that have homes in this price range, some of them currently are Highland Walk (p...

Highlands Ranch, Wildcat Ridge, Lone Tree, Daniel's Gate, Castle Pines, Castle Rock - These are all areas very close to the magnificient Backcountry Wilderness Area  & Daniel's Gate Park   The Backcountry Wilderness Trail that runs across the southern border of Highlands Ranch has been closed for the winter to allow animal migration.  But spring is here and the trail will open tomorrow, Saturday, March 29th, for the season.     With stunning views of the front range and even downtown Denver, the Backcountry Wilderness area is a favorite for those living in Highlands Ranch, Castle Pines, WildCat Ridge, Lone Tree and beyond.  Hiking and biking is abundant and if we get a late season snow, you will sometimes even see snowshoer's and cross country skiers on the trails.       Wildlife is ab...

Westridge Pointe, a neighborhood on the west side of Highlands Ranch has long been a desirable neighborhood.  With a great location for commuters all over the metro area, walking distance to the Westridge Recreation Center many more amenities and recreation options very close by - Westridge Pointe is definitely a neighborhood to consider if you are relocation to Highlands Ranch.  Schools are very nearby and the neighborhood itself is surrounded by 2 wonderful parks - Marcy Park & Redstone Park.  Redstone Park alone has a dog park, tennis courts, batting cages, skate park, sports fields, pond, playground an d much more. The beginning of this year has started off a bit slow in Highlands Ranch real estate sales in Westridge Pointe and there has not been as much inventory as there has been ...

One of the draws of Highlands Ranch is there is something for everyone. While many people think of Highlands Ranch as an area of single family homes, there are also many townhomes and condo communities as well.  Whether its for low maintenance, community amenities, location or investment properties, townhomes and condos are a great option for many in Highlands Ranch.  In addition they make a great opportunity for first time home buyers and those that wish to live in Highlands Ranch at a lower price point.   As of today March 15th, there are currently 116 resale properties available that are townhomes and condos in Highlands Ranch (listed in the MLS - usually not including new construction and for Sale By Owner/FSBO).  These lovely Highlands Ranch homes range in price from $109,000 to $5...

Weatherstone still is one of the most asked about neighborhoods that I received questions on in Highlands Ranch.  I am asked, What is the price range?  What are the amenities?  What i is going in behind it?  Is the new school for this neighborhood?    I complete understand the interest and desire in Weatherstone homes.  Weatherstone has a great location, many of the yards in Weatherstone are larger than other Highlands Ranch neighborhoods, it has its own pool, a neighborhood park, a new elementary school -Stone Mountain Elementary and the homes in Weatherstone are gorgeous.  It is not unusual to find a Weatherstone home for sale with great views to boot.     As of today March 15th, there are currently 7 resale properties available in Weatherstone (listed in the MLS) ranging from $530,0...

Last night in a complete nail biter, the Highlands Ranch High School Girls Basketball team defeated Regis Jesuit High School in the State Championships for their third straight title!  With under a minute to go HRHS was down and an incredible 3 point shot by Jenessa Burke was exactly what they needed after senior star Alyssa Fressle fouled out.  The HRHS girls had already defeated cross town rivals ThunderRidge to advance to the finals.     CONGRATULATIONS HRHS FALCONS!    Tonight 3/15 the ThunderRidge Boys will plays at 8:00 pm at the Coors Event Center at CU Boulder against Denver East for their chance at the state 5A title.    Related News StoriesFalcons Burke Steps Up and Seals Title Falcons Rise From The Dead   Search Denver Homes Steve Scheer, RE/MAX Masters, Inc.Denver Real Estat...

I have always enjoyed supporting High School athletics since living in Highlands Ranch.  Congrats to the High Schools in Highlands Ranch that are going to the Final Four Basketball brackets for the 5A division this week.   For the boys, ThunderRidge High School will be playing Palmer this Thursday 3/13 at 8:30 pm at the Coors Event Center at CU Boulder.   The winner will advance to the finals on Saturday 3/15.   And for the girls, we are talking some serious cross town competition.  Highlands Ranch High School will play ThunderRidge High School in the Final Four this Wednesday night at 8:00 pm, also at the Coors Event Center.  The winner will advance to the finals on Friday night 3/14.     Here are some links to related media reports for more information: State Basketball Tournaments U...

Recently I had the opportunity to visit and tour the BackCountry community, which is the new gated community located in Highlands Ranch on the south side of WildCat Reserve Parkway at Broadway.  I do have a Denver home buyer that is going to be visiting next month and he was hoping to see some additional photos of what was available in the Highlands Ranch new construction real estate market.       The construction for the Back County is well under way and already some homes are complete with many more to come.         Most of the Homes in the BackCountry are built by Shea homes and start in the $500,000's and the custom homes (by a variety of builders) will go well past the $1 million mark.  The BackCountry is one of the last of the larger communities being built in Highlands Ranch and ...

  Agents here is another article to learn from. How To Insulate Yourself Against Negative NewsReportsby Denise LonesHere we go again. The news media is back and playing its old game ofpummeling the airwaves with predictions of doom for the real estate industry."The Big Crash Is Coming," "Disaster Ahead," "The Bubble Is About ToBurst." Blah, blah, blah.And it's working. People are scared. You can't go to a supermarket or coffeeshop without overhearing a conversation about how bad the market is.Whenever you hear a piece of information pounded at you from differentsources, naturally it's going to sink in.But it's up to you to think. Don't just blindly believe a newsreader just becausethey are on television. True, numbers have been falling. Nobody can deny that.But, the "end of the world" h...

HIGHLANDS RANCH, CO - HIGHLANDS RANCH REAL ESTATE & HOMES SALES NUMBERS FROM FEBRUARY 2008 REAL ESTATE MARKET ACTIVITY REPORT There have been many interesting developments in the real estate market already in 2008.  The national media continues to alert homeowners and home buyers of the tumultuous real estate market.  The mortgage industry continues its roller coaster ride with great rates providing incentives for home buyers to make their move or refinance?  So are the consumers taking action?  How has all of this effected the local Denver real estate market. First of all, let's get some things straight.  Is the market in Highlands Ranch as bad as  the national media reports say the entire real estate market is?  In one word, no.  But is it great?  The honest answer is - no it isn't gr...

My daughter received a camera from her Grandfather for Christmas.  Its a very nice, simple compact digital that is pretty much point and shoot - perfect for her little hands.  She has tinkered with it a little but not too much.  She was with me in the car about a month ago and I told her we had to make a quick stop to take some pictures for one of my Denver real estate websites.   On the way home, she asked me if next time she could take pictures too.  I said, "Sure, why not,"  not really knowing what she had in mind.  A bit later in the week she said she was ready to go on her picture taking journey for my website.  I asked her what she wanted to take pictures of.  She said something to the effect of - "Well Dad, kids have to move too - you just post pictures of what the grown-ups need...

If you are looking to buy a home in Highlands Ranch, you probably already know that Highlands Ranch has a very efficiently run HOA, the Highlands Ranch Community Association (aka HRCA) that in addition to many other things houses & maintains 4 very beautiful recreation centers, each with an assortment of indoor and outdoor pools.   But in addition to the rec centers, there are some neighborhoods that have secondary HOA's - some of which also include their own neighborhood outdoor pool.  Often times I do have folks that are relocating to Highland Ranch that specifically inquire about these neighborhoods with their own pools - so here they are (in no particular order).  In general you will find that the Highlands Ranch neighborhood pools are open from mid-May until mid-September and somet...
