For those seeking a carefree lifestyle downtown, Kentwood City Properties is conveniently located across from Union Station and visitors are welcome. You can enjoy open houses nearly every week and also enjoy virtual tours on the company’s website.
“There are more buyers than sellers in the downtown condo market, which is being driven by the revitalization of Union Station and all the development in the Central Platte Valley,” said Lee Ann Nielsen, a leading Broker Associate with Kentwood City Properties. “Prices are up because inventory is low, and there is only a finite number of ‘for sale condos’ in the LoDo area. Buyers are paying a premium for historic lofts and location, location, location. What’s not to like about the lifestyle of living downtown when you can walk to all sporting venues, restaurants, the theater district, the new train to DIA and more. Inventory will more than likely remain low because very few units are being built for resale in downtown Denver, causing sale prices to continue climbing."
