2018 was an interesting year for real estate in the Denver Metro area. We saw multiple offers and prices accelerating at breakneck speeds during the first half of the year followed by a bit a slow down over the 2nd half. We'll see what 2019 has in store. Through the ups and downs, there were 8 neighborhoods that saw massive appreciation over 2018. Here are 8 of the hottest zip codes of 2018...

Hampden South & Southmoor Park - 80237

Hampden South

  • Median Price: $428,500

  • Change in Median Price: 39.9%

  • Average Days on Market: 32

Families that are outgrowing their 2 bedroom bungalows in the city are making the migration South to enjoy more breathing room, bigger lots, wider streets and suburbia in the City. Currently, the prices in Hampden South are below the median for the overall market and will continue to be a great buy going into 2019. This is a great location if you're looking for a 1960's or 19070's home that's prime for a remodel. Lot's of original owners in this part of town.

Lowry - 80230

  • Median Price: $729,402

  • Change in Median Price: 39.7%

  • Average Days on Market: 45

The former military base carries one of the heftiest price tags on our hottest neighborhood list but they still saw almost 40% gains last year. Some of this gain is due to the sales in the last parcel being developed in Lowry called Boulevard One. There are some beautiful homes available.

Anschutz Medical Campus has finally transformed this struggling neighborhood. We personally bought some rough foreclosure properties in Hoffman Estates for $90k back in 2008. Now we can sell them for $300k+. This neighborhood is prime for even more appreciation through 2019 and beyond.
