  Wondering how the market is doing in The Conservatory?   Each month I do the statistics for this neighborhood to see how long homes are on the market, the number of homes sold, and how the home values are doing.  This is how you stay on top of a market shift.  Below you will find the update for this month and what is currently available.  Homes in The Conservatory have basements, some are finished, some have mountain views, and were built from 2002 to 2016.  There are ranch models along with two-story and multi-level homes ranging in square footage from 1,387 to almost 3,000 above ground.  DR Horton/Continental was the original builder, but now Richmond, Standard Pacific, and Carpace have homes in this neighborhood also.  There are approximately 1,400 homes in this neighborhood. You w...

  Most of Aurora CO is on remote learning due to many COVID cases with students and teachers.    Sunday and Monday Aurora received 4-6" of snow depending on what part of the City you live in.    It was only 6 degrees at 8 am. Aurora Public Schools decided on calling it a SNOW DAY versus remaining on remote learning. Many businesses were either on delayed opening on Monday and City offices. Things have changed, when I grew up and had to walk a mile to school, they only called a snow day when we got a foot or more!
