Greenfield is located in Centennial, with some of this neighborhood in the City of Aurora.    It is located off Arapahoe Road & Picadilly in the South part of the Metro Denver area.   It is located in Cherry Creek School District, which is just one reason this neighborhood is popular! I like to stay on top of the statistics for the community, and nice to review the numbers every month, or at least every quarter.   Most months there are just one or two sales.  For For both August & September, there was only one sale each month.    For this size of the neighborhood, we don't usually see many homes go up for sale in Greenfield or Greenfield Estates.    Here is how October 2022 fared: 5 properties sold priced at $725,000 to $899,900 Average Days in MLS were 37 days Sellers saw 100% to list ...

Congratulations to my investor on another huge project that just about needs everything!   Homes around this house look gorgeous, so sure the neighbors will be thrilled when he gets the exterior up to snuff for this neighborhood! My investor likes those homes that need EVERYTHING.   He likes projects, and he got another one.    Think this one is #4 he has bought with me.   You know the inside is probably really bad when there are NO interior photos! Dam East homes feed into Cherry Creek Schools, and that is what he wants for his rentals.   (he remodels and rents the homes)    This one has 4 beds and 3 baths with a pretty good-sized yard. Our market has softened, but this home has lots of room for investors, so obviously, there were other offers.   He beat out 6 other offers!    There is...
