The city of Englewood can be found within the Denver Metropolitan area. Located just 20 minutes south of Denver, Englewood is known for its small town charm and has something to offer everyone. From the urban feel of the Denver Tech Center to the single family neighborhoods to the historic parts of old Englewood that is something to make everyone feel at home. There is always something happening down on Broadway or at the City Center. You can find local bakeries for your sweet tooth, or maybe even a good home cooked meal at one of the many restaurants in the area. There is so much to experience in this versatile city. Transportation remains an important aspect of planning for Englewood’s future. A few years back, RTD opened a light rail line along South Santa Fe Drive, with one of the s...

  Overview: Wow!  The market data continues to amaze us, and shows the exuberance of a confident market. There’s still a strong demand to buy that is finally giving homeowners the option to sell again due to the year to date appreciation in prices!  Once again, the market sold virtually every new listing that came up in July!    Please take a look at the graphs, as we are seeing some interesting trend lines, with Under Contracts and Solds probably peaking for the year and numbers of homes on the market (inventory) looking like it has bottomed out and continuing to grow since the end of May!  Even though we are still classifying this as a Seller’s Market, please be aware that the activity may vary a lot from area to area and with price range.    Market Metrics: By the numbers, the invent...

FHA 203K Renovation Loan available in Englewood Colorado. Many are not aware of a special government loan program that is actually a part of FHA (Federal Housing Administration- a department within HUD). A home buyer or existing home owner can remodel or update their home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program. You are not allowed to finance "Luxury items" such as a hot tub or swimming pool through this FHA loan program. You can repaint, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, replace appliances and flooring, add wallpaper, or even add a room to an existing structure (which will increase the value of your home because of more square footage). There are many advantages with this government loan program but the biggest is the ability to have...

Overview The big news is the trend lines are changing, and for the first time in over two years, housing inventory is actually increasing.  Notice the inventory graphs are heading back up (see graphs at end of article), and probably will for some time.  We are feeling that this is very healthy for our market as our buyers have more to look at and we are headed to a more balanced market for buyers and sellers.    Market Metrics: By the numbers, the inventory of available homes for sale is 8,214 homes at May month end.  8,093 homes came onto the market, 7,252 homes were placed under contract, and 5,665 homes closed for a closed dollar volume of $1.7 Billion.  School is out and the traditional prime home selling and home buying season is in full swing.   Monthly Market Recap: (See graphs ...

Donation Based Business …. Interesting concept huh?   Today, I attended a yoga class at a local donation based studio, Yoga Tree. When you walk in there is a board that simply “suggests” a donation of $11.00 per class. Of course, I was happy to oblige. I visit Yoga Tree at least once per day, if not more (3 classes today! AHH, How did I find time?). I love the idea of offering services to consumers at a rate that they can afford in this donation based system.   While attempting to relax during a down-ward facing dog, I got to thinking (Yes, I know, that’s a big NO NO) … How does a donation based company make enough money to sustain? Do they have minimal overhead costs or are the owners of the companies simply willing to absorb a loss for the good of “man-kind”? What are the “rules” for ...

I recently discovered a great new website that I think we could all benefit from. Meetup.com   Meetup.com sounds an awful lot like a dating site, but, coming from someone that is not looking to “meetup” with that “special someone”, I can tell you, it’s not. So, what is Meetup.com? A quote from the source … “Meetups are … neighbors getting together to learn something, do something, share something”. Meetup.com is a compilation of groups of people in a local area that share common interests. Many of you, no doubt, have participated in networking groups throughout the years. Meetup.com is similar, but, a bit more broad … from groups for people who have Pug dogs to groups for people that are big-time Real Estate Investors.   Search “Real Estate” within a 50 mile radius of a Denver zip code ...

Last night I attended my very first drum circle! I had been visiting one of my favorite local stores here in Denver: Isis Books. When you walk in, the aromas of beautiful incense, candles, and even their own in-house “MoonKats” tea shop greets your nose.  I had been in the store and visiting with a friend there for about an hour when I ran into the hostess of this lovely drum circle. I was a bit hesitant since I have NO experience … but, I proceeded with excitement and wonder. On the way in to my new found expression of self I stopped off at the MoonKats counter and had the most delicious organic, herbal berry with blueberry syrup, iced tea – created by the on staff tea-master Rob, a former executive chef for some local country clubs! YUMMM!   The music room was setup with candles, sage...

Few of the top reviews are given below: Braden from Naperville, IL says, “This is an awesome idea for a restaurant. This operates for a non-profit organization. The concept of you paying what you think it's worth is a cool thing. You can order anything on the menu in any kind of combination. I had 1/2 Cesar wrap and 1/2 meatball sandwich. The food was good, not amazing. I enjoyed this place though and will go back...

The young Alternative band The Fairgrounds had their first real concert this past weekend at Moes Barbecue, a favorite bbq restaurant in old Englewood that hosts local bands on Saturday nights through out the summer. The Fairgrounds, a local High School band, has performed a half dozen concerts over the past 6 months including a nice charity fundraiser for an orphanage in Ghana,  they raised over $1000 for that event which was the first time they ever performed in front of an audience. Last night, the band was challenged to sell out the venue, which they politely did, not only did they sell out, but they had the biggest following of fans of the four participating bands, many of whom are twice as old as these young rockers. Actually one of the headliners, Calling Out West has a very stro...

A friend of mine called me this week and asked me to go and look at new cars with her.  She is single and didn't want the salesman to think she was an easy mark walking in to the dealership by herself.  I told her no problem and I brought my husband along for good measure.  We went to a local car dealer (let's just say a Japanese car dealer) and walked into the showroom.  We were immediately greeted by an eager man (let's call him Joe) who's English wasn't the best.  I should have known things wouldn't go well when I introduced myself to him as Belinda and he called me Banana.  Of course, if I were Anna Banana, this would not be a problem. Joe immediately started peppering my friend with questions before she ever got to actually look at a car.  When she told him she was interested in tw...

Our team will be listing a fantastic 2 bedroom, ground floor home in Windmill Creek Condos tomorrow. In our preparation, we pulled the neighborhood statistics for the past 12 months and thought we would share them here. We have sold a great many Englewood condos in Windmill Creek over the years. Our team has gotten to know the community very well and I highly recommend it every time a buyer is looking in the area. The HOAs are very low (under $150 a month) and the amenities that the community provides are extensive. These 16 buildings share a clubhouse, pool, hot tub, office center, workout room and a sand volleyball pit. The units themselves are some of the nicest in the area and for the price, you can't go wrong here. Give our team a call at 303-726-1874 to talk about any of the avail...

I absolutely consider Pat's Philly Cheese Steaks the best in Denver. Pat's Philly Steaks and Subs is a family owned business with Philadelphia roots. They have been creating some of the tastiest cheese steaks and subs in Denver since 1999. Pat's produces an authentic Philly taste. They use fresh baked rolls that are consistently recognized as "East Coast" style by many former Philadelphians in the Denver Area. They are by far, the best Philly Cheese Steaks I have ever had west of Philly. Each store is chock full of Philadelphia décor with everything from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Phillies.  They also always have a huge assortment of Tasty Kakes available at the register for the perfect ending to a Philly sandwich. They have four locations in the Denver Metro area.  Arapahoe and I-2...
