In “Cheapest Houses for Sale in Most Affordable Metro Denver Cities,” we highlighted the least expensive detached homes on the block in thirteen of 26 local communities — the half with lower list prices. At the same time last week, we also compiled information about the cheapest houses available in the other thirteen. But in the days since then, something totally indicative of greater Denver’s red-hot housing market happened: More than half of the properties were put under contract.

So we pulled together a new list of the cheapest houses for sale in those thirteen metro cities on the Homesnap website. They’re all active as of this morning, but the way things are going, that could change within hours — or even less.

Of course, the word “cheap” is relative. The least-spendy place on this list is a pad in Erie going for $375,000 — just over half of the $700,000 average price for a detached home in the metro area right now. Ten of the other twelve homes are listed at less than $700K — though with bidding wars commonplace these days, the final cost could exceed that figure. As for the last two, they’re too expensive for most of us — particularly the one in Cherry Hills Village, which has a tag of more than $2 million.

Here are the cheapest houses currently for sale in the thirteen pricier metro Denver municipalities, ordered from lowest to highest price and accompanied by select photos, links, details and more:
