Denver real estate is red hot right now (as I stare out the window and it’s snowing sideways during an unusually late mid March winter blizzard). Homes are rarely on market for a full weekend before multiple hero offers are received. This makes entering the market intimidating for any buyer, but for those who need to sell their current home before they can purchase the next, accompanied with loving their current neighborhood, some home owners are resorting to improving their current homes by “popping the top” instead of moving to a new house. As I was adding a just sold listing (pictured above) to my past sales page and started describing the top had been popped, I thought to myself it would be great to have some stats and information about pop-tops in Denver.
- Who is doing them?
- How much they cost?
- Other than Berkeley and Highlands and Sloans, where are they happening?
Well… it turns out this is certainly not an original thought because after about 30 seconds of Google searching, I stumbled upon this amazing 5280 Magazine piece that breaks down the anatomy of a pop-top, hiring the right team, and choosing the right finishes for your renovation project.
