Denver, CO – December 13, 2017 – (RealEstateRama) — What are Colorado’s hottest neighborhoods? Denver’s West Colfax and Chaffee Park are on the list, as are Old Town in Windsor, Downtown in Colorado Springs, and Keewaydin in Boulder. That’s according to December’s “Hot Hoodz,” released by zavvie, a national HyperLocal and social media real estate marketing startup based in Boulder.
Colorado’s Hot Hoodz discovers up-and-coming Colorado neighborhoods. How does zavvie know this? Based on three factors, says zavvie COO Stefan Peterson:
- Median Home Price Appreciation
- Internet Buzz
- Social Media Engagement Per Neighborhood (a zavvie proprietary social index)
“zavvie studies a variety of online analytics to select these Hot Hoodz,” said Peterson, “including the insight we get from zavvie real estate agents across Colorado. By combining online analytics, local online engagement, and sales metrics, like price appreciation, each month, we will select and announce several new Hot Hoodz based on these factors.”
For each Hot Hoodz, zavvie is publishing a digital buzz sheet that contains a few interesting and fun facts about each local neighborhood selected, as well as market observations from a local real estate agent:
West Colfax (Denver): Median Home Price Appreciation/12 months – Up 14.7% – Believe it or not, Colfax was once known as Brooklyn – in the last 1880s and in the early 20th Century, was nicknamed “No Man’s Land” because it was sparsely settled. No more, notes local real estate agent Morgan Riss. “It is an amazing community that is very involved in what is going on and collectively tries to make it a better place to live,” Riss said. “Residents enjoy being close to Downtown, the Light Rail, The Highlands and Jefferson Park and there are plenty of new retail developments going on in the area.”
Chaffee Park (Denver): Median Home Price Appreciation/12 months – Up 16.5% – Chaffee Park is named after one of the founders of Denver, Jerome Chaffee, whose daughter married Ulysses S. Grant Jr., son of the US President. Here are some comments from local real estate agents: “Chaffee Park has been on the upswing for years, with new families moving into homes that are attractively priced compared with the nearby neighborhoods. It’s a great place to live, mixing an urban feel with a wholesome old neighborhood atmosphere. It’s also convenient to downtown, and features the beautiful Zuni Park. No wonder people moving here feel they’ve found a hidden gem.”
Keewaydin (Boulder): Median Home Price Appreciation/12 months – Up 27.5% – The town’s name means “the Northwest wind” and comes from the poem, The Song of Hiawatha, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. According to local real estate agent Erick Boye, “Keewaydin is an awesome neighborhood: Tough to spell – easy to live here. What makes Keewaydin great is its affordability in relation to many other areas of Boulder. Aside from price and location, what makes Keewaydin so popular is the people who live here. I met my clients for a final walk-through, and I was pleasantly surprised to see a bunch of surrounding neighbors walk right over to meet the new owners and welcome them to the neighborhood.”
Downtown Colorado Springs: Median Home Price Appreciation/12 months – Up 12.4% – Some homes date back to the late 1800s and William Jackson Palmer who founded Colorado Springs in 1871 was the same man who founded Union Pacific Railroad. Local real estate agent Summer Liebold notes, “With all the excitement of new businesses coming in, people are finding Downtown Colorado Springs has a lot to offer. Buyers really value the historic homes, and demand is high while inventory is still low.”
Old Town Windsor: Median Home Price Appreciation/12 months – Up 15.6% – Windsor was known as “half-way house” in 1873, because it was halfway between Ft. Collins and Greeley. Local real estate agent Mark Despain notes, “A house on just about every block is being renovated or has been renovated in the last two years. The charm of the tree-lined streets and classic architecture is certainly a big draw, but there is so much more the Old Town area has to offer.”
