One Story Ranch Style Homes Gain in Popularity in Colorado

As the Baby Boomer population becomes 'empty nest' homeowners with the children grown and finding their own new homes (home buyer tax credit info), many current Littleton home owners are looking to 'right size' their home. 

The two-story, tri-level or split-level homes that were popular in Littleton and surrounding Metro Denver neighborhoods developed in the 1970's have become less desirable among many who prefer not to walk up and down multiple flights of stairs several times a day.

Finding the ideal one-story home with enough living space can be challenging, especially since builders have not kept up with demand for such homes over the years.  With devlopers looking to maximize their sale price per square foot in neighborhood lots, home builders chose to build multiple story homes, which resulted in established Littleton neighborhoods not having enough one story ranch style homes to meet today's home buyer demand for such homes in affordable price ranges.

As real estate agents, we find one-story ranch style homes in Littleton typically sell slightly faster and for more money than neighboring homes.  For buyers, unfortunately, it can be difficult on public real estate websites to filter the search engines to select only the particular price and style of home without sorting through many other undesirable homes.  For that reason, I have created several custom searches that update daily with the newest listings and listing updates to help home buyers narrow the search. 

I invite you to try out our customized searches by clicking on any of the following links to my website:

Search: One Story Ranch Style Homes in Littleton

Search: Two Story Style Homes in Littleton

Search: Tri-Level Style Homes in Littleton

Search: Littleton Homes with 2500 Square Feet or More

Search: Littleton Homes with Basements

Search: New For Sale Home Listings in Littleton (less than one week on market)

Search: Bank Owned Foreclosure Listings in Littleton

Of course, there are many other possible search criteria, and every home buyer is different.  If you are looking to optimize your time and either expand or narrow your home searches, we can help you create a customized search just for you.  We can focus on style, location, distressed properties, etc.  For more information, give me a call at 303-378-7677 or email me any time.
