MODERATOR NOTES (5-5-14):

The topic of Real Estate is too widespread to keep in just one thread, THIS thread is reserved for DATA and CHARTS.
The DISCUSSION and OPINION of Real Estate has been moved to a new thread, found here.



Commerce City buys Mile High Greyhound Park for redevelopment - The Commerce City Urban Renewal Authority said Wednesday it has bought Mile High Greyhound Park and plans to re-develop the site. City officials envision the site as a mixed-use development. It has been designated a Colorado Enterprise Zone, which qualifies businesses that locate there for tax credits. City officials want to finalize a plan by May 2012, then send the project out with a request for proposals. Read article:

I know I've said this on another thread, but I've been impressed with Commerce City's efforts to redefine itself. Yes, it still has the older neighborhoods and the refinery, but, the Civic Center area and Dick's Sporting Goods park are impressive. Reunion is a nice subdivision too, even though it's far away from everything. Gotta give them credit for trying! I'm interested to see how this effort unfolds.

Default Old University of Colorado Hospital campus redevelopment

is to be finished in 2014 - The company redeveloping the old University of Colorado Hospital campus expects the project will be completed in about three years 10 years after the hospital left the site for the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. St. Petersburg, Fla.-based Sembler Co. in April agreed to buy the 28-acre property at East Ninth Avenue and Colorado Boulevard for $34.8 million. Sembler plans to start construction next April on a $180 million project that will have about 500 residences and 350,000 square feet of retail space. Read article:

Case-Shiller: Denver No. 3
Denver's housing market ranked third in June on a year-over-year basis out of the 20 major metropolitan areas tracked by the closely watched Case-Shiller report released today. That was the first time in a year and a half that Denver had ranked so well. Denver's housing market fell by 2.5 percent in June from June 2010, with only Washington, D.C. and Boston, which fell 1.2 percent and 2.1 percent, respectively, doing better. All 20 cities were in negative territory on a year-over-year basis. Overall, the 20 MSAs lost 4.5 percent.

Bloomberg has one of it's periodic articles that draws on recent data from the Case Shiller index. It shows that Denver, Boston, DC, and Dallas are the only big cities to have values drop less than 5% over the past 3 years.

On the other hand, here are the markets where home prices have really tanked in the last 3 years:
-36% in Las Vegas
-28% in Phoenix
-25% in Tampa
-21% in Atlanta
-21% in Miami
-21% in Seattle

Data only show the drop in 3 years. In my case, the type of home that we sold in Northern Virginia (25 miles west of DC) for $500k in 2005 is now selling for $350k, which is a 30% drop.
