Last month, the median sold price for a condo or attached single-family home in Denver was $275,000, according to the Denver Metro Association of Realtors. Naturally, we wanted to know what kind of condo that buys.
DMAR says the median sold condo was 1,167 square feet, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms and was built in 1985. Here’s a more visual sampling of what about $275,000 gets you in Denver and three other markets.
- 955 Eudora St., Unit 404E
- 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 810 square feet
Here’s a thoroughly remodeled condo in the Hale neighborhood, down to its “wood-designed” flooring. You also get a pool and your own balcony, which are my most coveted amenities. HOA dues are nearly $300 a month though.
- 4141 Pennsylvania Ave. #402
- 1 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 966 square feet
In Kansas City, less money gets you about 150 more square feet and an industrial style loft. Also this condo has polished concrete floors that are almost a foot deep. On one hand, you’d probably want some rugs, on the other hand, you should be insulated from neighbors’ noise.
- 957 E. 7th St., #150
- 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,175 square feet
Cheapest HOA dues, most square footage — this week, Charlotte is where you get the most bang for your imaginary real estate bucks. This home is also pretty new construction, built in 2006, so that could be a plus for some buyers too.
- 1220 NE 17th Ave., Unit 8D
- 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 807 square feet
Portland and Denver may look similar this week, but the HOA dues for Portland condo costs $78 more per month. And you don’t even get a pool, according to the listing.
