New Town Builders, like most builders in Stapleton, is selling homes at a very fast pace. In fact, there is more buyer demand now than lots available which is a good sign for the real estate market but a little frustrating for those looking to make a purchase. Here is a quick update on what New Town is up to in Spring 2013 in Stapleton. If you need more info or you’re looking for a local knowledgeable Realtor my contact information is at the bottom of the post.
In terms of single family detached homes New Town is currently still selling the Solaris collection in various areas of Stapleton below I-70. Here is what they have now (keep in mind it changes very quickly so contact me for the latest):
They have 5 home sites available in the South End neighborhood of Stapleton near the intersection of 21st St and Trenton St. In this location they have two Berkley models, two Wellshire models and 1 Montclair (main floor master) model. Not sure what these Solaris models look like…click here to check out their floor plans on New Town’s website. The pricing should be out any day now on these five homes. The benefit of these lots is they are walking distance to the dog park, the community garden, Greenway Park along 26th Avenue and Fred Thomas Park. My guess is probably a 10-12 minute walk to the 29th Ave Town Center which is nice. These lots are across from single family homes and they are also adjacent to some Mcstain town homes as well as some future New Town town homes.
They also have 7 home sites available in the Eastbridge neighborhood North of MLK but South of the Knowledge Beginnings daycare. Of these 7 homes there are 3 Wellshires (very popular model!), 2 Whittiers (awesome dual porch), a Berkley and a Westwood. One potential benefit here is the homes will be walking distance to the future East Bridge Town Center as well as the Stapleton Rec Center but the downsides include the fact that no one knows when/if this town center will be built and MLK Blvd is a higher traffic street. These homes will be buffered from MLK by other residences so they are not on MLK.
In addition to these 5 South End lots New Town Builders is also selling the Solaris II collection in Stapleton’s next neighborhood, Conservatory Green. In this series they have 4 floor plans known as the Speer, Merrill, Hale and Belcaro. The square footage ranges from approximately 1,800 to 2,200 sf not including finished basements which is about a $25k upgrade. The base prices are in the high $300k’s to lower $400k’s but don’t forget lot premiums and your finish selections which will take you higher in sales price. Whereas on Solaris I New Town included $20k in allowance at the design center (this means your first $20k in upgrades is included in the base price) it now only includes $10k in the Solaris II collection. This is essentially a price increase, which doesn’t surprise me because of buyer demand. They have released one small group of these homes near the corner of 49th Place and Uinta St and they sold out quickly. Buyers are clamoring for homes in their next release of lots which will be near the intersection of 50th Place and Uinta St. New Town is not ready to officially release these next lots but I can tell you that it’s very competitive and if you want to purchase one of these you should start to figure out the floor plans and lots you want now. These floor plans are not yet on-line but send me an email and I can forward you all 4 plans for your review. Homes are few and far between right now so getting a little ahead of the curve and knowing what you want is key.
The Solaris and Solaris II collections will include solar panels and a prepaid lease as part of the purchase.
New Town’s next single family home series will be called Haven. These will be built on shallow lots compared to Solaris’s deep lots. There isn’t a lot of information out about these and currently none of these are for sale. Initial estimates look like they will start in the mid $300k’s, have 3-5 bedrooms and have 1,800 – 2,100 sf. More to come on these as information becomes available.
In terms of attached homes New Town is building their Central Park Rows. These are sleek modern town homes that offer starting prices in the low to mid $200k’s. The plans offer 2-3 bedrooms, 1,166 – 1,560 sf and attached 2 car garages. They are 3 levels so there are quite a few stairs which may turn off some buyers. I love the main level which has an open layout with the kitchen/living/outdoor space all together. They have models of these available at 8306 E 35th Ave Denver, CO 80238 and you can also click here check out the three floor plans on-line. New Town is building some of these in the Eastbridge neighborhood of Stapleton and they’ll also be building quite a few of these in the Consevatory Green neighborhood North of I-70. If you are interested in these I’d suggest touring the models, determining which floor plan suits your needs, then looking at where they have that floor plan available (or where it will become available in the near future). If you want the services of a Realtor (I’d love to help!) don’t forget to bring the Realtor along on your visit to the model homes. It doesn’t cost you any more money to have a Realtor so you might as well have someone on your side looking out for your needs. (Not sure how buying and building a new home works…click here for a video series I shot on the building process when we built our New Town home in Stapleton!). I am not affiliated with any one builder so I’m happy to help buyers find the right home that fits their needs, whether that is a new home or a resale.
