But that's only part of the story.
Looking back on the priciest properties in posts published over the past six-plus years, it's clear that while Denver home costs in general have risen steadily, with the average tag eventually exceeding $500,000, the luxury market appears to have remained fairly steady. For instance, that January 2013 item focused on five houses that ranged in price from $5,900,000 to $15,000,000. The former number is nearly $1 million higher than the sixth-most expensive home for sale right now, and the latter is more than $1 million more than the latest leader.
That doesn't mean luxury homes in the metro area are a comparative bargain. Note that one of the most expensive Denver homes for sale in December 2017, located at 910 Gaylord, is also on the block today, yet the asking amount has gone up, not down. Back then, it was listed at $5,850,000. Now, it's $5,990,000.
