Denver Real Estate Market

Denver Real Estate Market

It’s still all good news! The Denver real estate market is one of the 28 cities still growing and could realize yet another year of high appreciation. For lower-priced properties (up to $500,000), competition to purchase is fierce and inventory is only around a one-month supply.

In the luxury market ($650,000 +), homes do take longer to sell and obviously the more expensive the home, the smaller the buyer pool is. When we get into the seven-figure homes, the les…

Rising Mortgage Rates

Posted on at 1:52 pm by Andrea Webber

Economists warn that rising mortgage rates could have a big impact on buyers shopping for real estate. Every increase in interest rate will exclude a percentage of buyers from becoming owners, especially first-time purchasers. Many have been sitting on the fence on buying while the interest rates have remained so low but seeing home prices rise by double digits per year in some major cities.

The addition of a new cap on the mortgage interest deduction and an additional new cap on state and lo…

Focus On Bow Mar, Littleton Colorado

How Bow Mar, Littleton Colorado got its name. The history began in the late 19th century. Developed as an agricultural area, it became home to the farms of Joseph Bowles and John Marston, providing food for both Littleton and Denver.

Post World War II, the farmland was purchased to develop single-family housing and became incorporated as a town in its own right in 1958.

Bow Mar homes were originally built around a Frank Lloyd Wright prairie-style des…

Buyer Home Inspection – Pick Your Battles!

Posted on at 4:15 pm by Andrea Webber

We know that it’s all about negotiation when it comes down to buyer home inspection and many are worth the back and forth – if it’s a big item.

I always advise a seller to have a pre-inspection to get the heads up on attending to whatever can be fixed, and so do their best to head off the issues that could arise when a buyer sends in their own team to look over the home. It saves time and stress for both parties when the home goes under contract.

However, as a buyer in a buoyant sell…

US Ski Team Trains at Copper Mountain Speed Center

Posted on at 2:18 pm by Andrea Webber

The snowmaking team at Copper Mountain Speed Center is again working around the clock to overcome the lack of snow to accommodate the opening of the US Ski Team Speed Center. Six years in, this world-class training venue has helped propel the U.S. Ski Team athletes to dominate the sport.

In 2011, Copper Mountain became an official US Ski Team downhill training venue with the opening of the US Ski Team Speed Center at Copper Mountain. Racers can clock speeds of up to 75 mph on this course, so…

Home Buyers To Take Possession Before Closing? What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Posted on at 3:58 pm by Andrea Webber

Allowing your home buyers to take possession before closing?

It’s just a few days or a couple of weeks early, so what could be the harm in that?
More Than You Think!
You are well past all the objection deadlines and have moved out. Your buyer has already become emotionally attached to their prospective new home and can’t wait to move in, but the potential legal, insurance and repair issues of allowing them to do so before closing could carry serious ramifications.

“Can We Start…

The Best Time to Sell Your Home

Posted on at 1:36 pm by Andrea Webber

Due to the lack of inventory in the Denver luxury home market, the best time to sell your home is NOW!

2017 is shaping up to be a great seller’s market with three percent fewer homes available than this time last year. However, is there a specific time of the year when all the planets are in alignment to list a home?

Zillow Chief Economist, Dr. Svenja Gudell thinks that there is:

“Many who started looking for homes in the early spring will still be searching for…
