See Arvada Homes for Sale between $200,000 and $300,000 Read on for a report on Arvada Home Sales: Homes sold the past month are red, homes under contract are purple, homes for sale are blue. What this report tells you:  This is still a strong seller's market even though days on market have increased to the same number as last year. I believe that's due to sellers of Arvada homes realizing they can get more for their homes than they previously thought, and getting those properties on the market.  The percent of distressed sales has also increased, I believe that is also due to the price increases; banks are releasing some of the properties they've held back on. Also, the number of homes selling at or above asking price is coming down.  In fact, the majority of those sold right at asking...

Looking for a place that has a huge history, great drinks and food and even hosts stand-up comedians? The Arvada Tavern, in Olde Town Arvada, has just that! The Arvada Tavern received their license to serve alcohol in 1933! On April 7th 1933, the town of Arvada was issued their very first Tavern license to the owner or the Arvada Tavern (Adrian Kline).
