5280 Magazine says Five Points is no longer up-and-coming – Denver Real Estate News

In Denver Real Estate News 5280 Magazine: Why Five Points is no longer on the verge of becoming Denver’s next hot neighborhood. See the full article here or read a tid bit below.

Five Points Neighborhood DenverFor more than 30 years, Denver has been trumpeting the revitalization of Five Points. After its tumble from a lively center of music and culture in the 1930s and ’40s to a neglected corner later in the 20th century, many attempts have been made to restore the neighborhood. With each effort, the media hailed Five Points’ return: “Five Points—Making A Comeback” the Rocky Mountain News crowed in 1991. “Five Points sits on the verge of change” the Denver Post claimed five years later.

But Five Points isn’t “poised” to become anything anymore. It already is. If you need convincing, visit Rosenberg’s Bagels & Delicatessen on a weekend and wait in the 20-person-deep line. Or tour the area’s dozen or so construction sites; they represent $250 million of investment by the city and private developers. Or eyeball the soaring median home values: $317,500 in 2013, up roughly 31 percent from 2009.

Five Points Neighborhood Sign - Denver Real Estate NewsToday the question isn’t if Five Points will take off; it’s why, as in, Why now? In part, it’s because our expanding millennial population—the pistons inside Denver’s booming economic engine—and our baby boomers both crave easy access to downtown, says Paul Books, founder of Palisade Partners, a developer involved in several Five Points projects. So every central neighborhood is experiencing a renaissance. “And [Mayor Michael Hancock] made Five Points a priority,” Books says. There may be no better illustration of this than the 2013 Welton Design/Development Challenge.

Two years ago, Denver’s Office of Economic Development (OED) awarded a total of $475,000 to five commercial and mixed-use residential projects along the Welton Street corridor. Not only does this provide an important capital infusion for small projects, such as Rosenberg’s, but it also serves as a signal of the mayor’s commitment to the area, where the Manual High School graduate was raised. Coupled with unique tax breaks (see “TIF,” below), the grants allow the city to foster development while preserving the legacy of a gentrifying area.

Yes. The “G” word. “I don’t have a conversation without gentrification coming up,” says District 9 Councilman Albus Brooks. “It’s happening everywhere, but in Five Points it has a face.” As home values in Five Points have climbed, minority populations have declined. Property taxes have become burdensome. In July, Hancock announced plans for a $15 million fund to preserve and build at least 6,000 affordable homes throughout the city, especially in transit-oriented development areas like Five Points. Most of that money would come from a property tax mill that the city has been crediting back to homeowners (roughly $30 to $50 per home annually). The rest could come from a “housing linkage fee,” essentially a one-time fee developers would pay…..

Centennial, Colorado 80122 is the 3rd hottest zip code in America

According to Yahoo Real Estate Centennial, Colorado 80122 is the 3rd hottest zip code in America. See the whole list and article on Yahoo here.

Pop. 30,457 in the ZIP Code

Located in the southern Denver area, Centennial was named a best place to live last year by both Money magazine and 24/7 Wall St. (whose story was republished in USA Today, among other publications). Homes are snapped up faster here than anywhere else

How were the hottest zip codes in America determined?

Realtor.com just released the results of its Combined Hotness Index for the first half of 2015, drawing from its huge listings database to rank tens of thousands of ZIPs on two measures:

Demand. Average number of times each listing is viewed.

Supply. How fast homes sell (median age of inventory).

The 10 hottest ZIPs — listed below — outpace the nation by about a factor of five in terms of short supply and strong demand, Realtor.com told Yahoo Homes. Overall, homes in the top 10 ZIPs sell four to nine times faster than the national average, and the ZIPs’ listings are viewed three to eight times more often. In one Colorado community, homes last a mere two weeks on the market, selling faster than anywhere else in the nation.

What’s so great about these ZIPs? Realtor.com Chief Economist Jonathan Smoke tells Yahoo Homes that each has its own strengths, but all have in common the fact that they’re “trending in the right direction” economically, particularly in terms of unemployment. Eight of the 10 are in metro areas with “healthy” economies; the other two ZIPs are in metro areas that appear to be on the upswing, St. Louis and Detroit. (For statistical purposes, Realtor.com excluded ZIPs with fewer than 14 listings, which made the list “a bit more urban,” Smoke said. Scroll to the bottom of this article for a more complete description of methodology.)

“These ZIP Codes are in some of the best-performing local economies, for the most part,” he said.

Not only that, but they seem to be particularly good for Millennials. The median income for the 25-to-34 age group in these ZIP Codes is 50 percent higher than the national average, and 26 percent higher than the larger metro areas.

That matters because first-time homebuyers — of whom 70 percent are Millennials — are considered key to the housing recovery. They’re buying 17 percent more than last year, Smoke said, more than offsetting the decline in activity among investors and foreign buyers.

Other features of the top 10 ZIPs:

“I am happy to see that affordability is a factor here,” Smoke said. All but two of the ZIPs are affordable in national terms, and the two that aren’t — Carlsbad, outside San Diego, and Melrose — are “on the affordable areas of the spectrum” within the larger community. In three of the ZIPs — Worthington, Ohio, outside Columbus; the Detroit suburb of Novi; and the St. Louis suburb Crestwood — the median household income is enough to afford about two-thirds of homes on the market.

The ZIPs have an average of 22 percent lower unemployment than their wider metro areas — and that’s in a group of metros where unemployment rates have dropped five times faster than other metros’ rates have in the last year. Eight of the ZIPs have less than 5 percent unemployment rates (Crestwood and Novi being the exceptions).

Median household income in the top 10 ZIPs is $71,000 — 20 percent higher than the larger metro areas’ average and 32 percent higher than the national average, $54,000. Older Millennials, those in the 25-to-34 age group, tend to do particularly well.

A third of these ZIPs’ households earn at least $100,000 a year. Nationally, less than a quarter of households earn that much.

You might notice an absence of the usual suspects — most glaringly, Silicon Valley — on this list. Smoke says Silicon Valley ZIPs rank “pretty highly” when the list is broadened beyond the top 10, but because the “entire market is hot,” there are no “standout neighborhoods.

Below are the hottest ZIP Codes in the nation so far in 2015. We asked Realtor.com to provide an example of a home near the median price in each ZIP, just to give a sense of the market; you can click on each photo for listing details.

in the country, spending just two weeks on the market. Millennial households’ median income is a whopping $88,000 a year, about two-thirds more than their counterparts nationally and about half again as much as their Denver-area cohorts.
