Sellers agents are probably making a killing right now considering decent quality homes are only on the market for a few days.
I just built new construction and moved in at the end of November, and even I am getting those flyers!

I am curious about current value, but not enough to follow up since I don't plan to move for the next few decades.

When we moved here from Florida we owned a lakefront house in Orlando that we were renting out. We were considering keeping it, and using it for snow-birding. It was 2004 when I started getting calls from investors and agents alike, hounding me to sell or list the house. It was a little creepy that they tracked me down out here, since all my phone numbers were new and unlisted.

I suspect he's just cold-calling the entire neighborhood. My number is listed, and inventory is incredibly tight in this part of the south metro. I wasn't offended. (That is, until he hung up on me!) Anyway, I understand exactly why people want this neighborhood. It's the same reason I live here.

We have neighbors in Stapleton who put their house on the market last week and immediately got a solid offer for $20K over asking. They already had a new build going up within Stapleton.

Has anyone noticed how absurdly expensive 250 Columbine is? It is the only major condo construction in the last 6 years since the Spire, and their condos are priced at ~1k per sqft. Didn't know Cherry Creek was the new Manhattan.

And for that price, I'll take Manhattan any day of the week.

We are moving out to NC this summer and will be listing our house in SE Aurora (Cherry Creek Schools) in Late June/Early July. After hearing how quickly things are selling in this area right now I am questioning whether or not we really need a realtor, or should we just try and list it ourselves? I really hate to pay so much in realtor fees for something that will go under contract with very little marketing required. Any thoughts? Or is there some middle ground? Flat rate realtors or something like that.

Technically, you could put a "For Sale" up in your yard and get 10 offers that same day.

Realistically, I would always recommend using a realtor.

However, negotiate their commission.

In this market, realtors want listings.

There is a realtor company that charges low flat fee rate that I know of. I posted their info but my post got deleted. PM me if you want to know what the company is.
