5 Denver homes that sold way over list price last week: Sept. 11 edition

One reason that overbids have the ability to offend is that they’re smaller. One of this week’s homes is less than 1,000 square feet.

One reason that overbid homes have the ability to offend is that they’re smaller. In other words, the homes that people buy for over asking price have fewer square feet on average than the ones that go closer to list price.

Overbid homes last week had a median size of 1,529.5 square feet. Underbid homes in the same week had 1,904 square feet. Read on for this week’s biggest overbids — including one with less 1,000 square feet.

Last week, 44 percent of the people who bought a home paid more than its asking price. The differences ranged from $90 extra to a full $45,500 more.

Here are the top five overbids of the last week.
