Homes For Sale in Cory-Merrill
Cory-Merrill Real Estate
Cory-Merrill real estate is very active as the neighborhood is in transition due to its great location. Our houses generally fall into three categories: a handful of first-generation houses built around the 1920s when there were up to a few houses on a block that was otherwise mostly fields (see Bonnie Brae Tavern for photos of the area), second-generation homes built on the fields in the 1940s and 1950s, and third-generation custom homes (scrape and build) typically built 2003 to present. There are also a handful of rentals scattered about the neighborhood. Among many things, neighbors are attracted to the central location, access to downtown/DTC/Cherry Creek, proximity to light rail and major roads, the schools, nearby retail, nearby parks, and a sense of community. Not having major attractions embedded in the neighborhood — like Washington Park, Gaylord Street, Pearl Street, DU or Cherry Creek — means fewer people from outside our neighborhood coming in compared to surrounding neighborhoods.

Cory-Merrill is a special neighborhood for me. Please do not hesitate to reach out to simply say hello. I love meeting new people in South Denver and the Cory Merrill neighborhood. My hope is you love where you live!! This is why I was a volunteer board member for the Cory-Merrill Neighborhood Association from 2013 through 2022 and am the founding organizer of the Annual Cory-Merrill Neighborhood Yard Sale each Spring. I first bought my house in Cory-Merrill about 20 years ago after Denver voters put the T-Rex light rail and I-25 expansion project into motion. Wow, has Denver and the Cory-Merrill neighborhood changed since then. As they say…location, location, location. Cory-Merrill and South Denver continue to be my favorite location in our vibrant city.

Should you find yourself or someone you know considering selling or buying a home in Cory-Merrill or South Denver, please reach out to me. The Cory-Merrill real estate market may seem simple on the surface, but it is actually a complex sub-market due to having three generations of homes in addition to factors like location, home style, finish level, lot size, etc. that attract nine different types of home buyers. Not to mention the factor of Denver being a city in transition. Understanding these buyer types can help you sell your Cory-Merrill home for more money, in less time, and with less stress. I enjoy this strategic complexity and putting it to work for my clients.
