Metro Denver Zip Codes With the Most House Flipping

Our recent roundup of homes for sale in Denver for under $250,000 noted that many of these fixer-uppers are being marketed to buyers interested in renovating and reselling at a higher price in the hopes of scoring a profit. House flipping, as it's known, is commonplace in today's red hot Denver housing market, as shown in new numbers that reveal the metro zip codes where it's happening most frequently and the often huge windfalls that can result.

The information comes from Attom Data Solutions, which has just published a new report on house flipping. At Westword's request, the ADS folks provided figures related to every metro zip code where at least ten houses were flipped during the first quarter of 2018.

A total of 39 zip codes qualify by this standard, with the 80219 zip code, in the City and County and Denver, boasting the most flips during the initial three months of the year: 32.

The amount of money house flippers are making from resales vary widely from place to place. The low is an average of $2,000 in the 80112 zip code — a slice of Arapahoe County that encompasses Englewood. In contrast, the 80209 zip code in Denver represents a jackpot for developers. The median purchase price in early 2018 was $535,500 and the flipped price came in at $780,500, resulting in a gross profit of a jaw-slackening $245,000.

Continue to see info about the aforementioned 39 zip codes, ordered by the percentage of total sales represented by flipped houses; the topper is 80236, where renovated properties represented nearly a quarter of all homes purchased this past January, February and March.

The 80236 zip code includes neighborhoods such as Harvey Park South.
