Spring has finally arrived in Denver!   This time last week, Mother's Day, I was sitting at home watching the snow fall and feeling sorry for myself.  Due to the weather, I had to cancel plans for dinner with my son and daughter-in-law.  We have  had to reschedule so many times over the past few months.... Today brought new optimism as the sun was out and the temperatures were reaching into the 80's!  That's Colorado for you.  I decided to attend an art fair in northeast Denver, known as Park Hill, where a friend of mine had a booth. It was a lovely show and so many people were milling about....especially after the Colfax marathon! Getting home and after mowing the backyard, I grabbed my camera and headed to some local gardens....

SOLD in Sun Valley Estates - Lakewood, CO  80232     In a strong Seller's market, buyers are forced to make quick decisions, and luckily this buyer knew this was the home once she walked in the front door!    Competing against other offers, she was capable of preparing a strong offer the Sellers accepted with the help of Joan Cox REALTOR with Metro Brokers House to Home, Inc.   I was thrilled when a ActiveRain lender called me with a buyer lead needing assistance with her first home!    It took just a short couple of weeks house hunting, and found the home she wanted.    With solar panels installed, we found there was more paperwork needed than thought, but worked through all the bumps to get to closing Tuesday!    She will create a warm and inviting home where she can be happy for year...

The market for Lakewood foreclosures has been red hot. With investors fighting over the few bank owned homes on the market, potential homebuyers have been struggling to find any foreclosures to even bid on. This past week, HUD gave these potential homebuyers a little help by listing 2 new foreclosures in Lakewood. The first home is in the Calahan Lakewood neighborhood. This home has well over 2,300 finished square feet and sits on almost a quarter acre. Hardwood floors, an attached garage, newer windows and more make this home a great deal at just $192,900. The home is ideally located, just a short walk to Lasley Park.   Calahan Lakewood Homes: HUD Owned Home6800 West Iowa Avenue Lakewood 80232  $192,900.00 Beds: 2      Fin Sq Ft: 2385 Baths: 2     Year: 1956 Acres:0.19 # Of Photos Avai...

  Why Staging A Home Sells!   Find current homes for sale in the Courseside subdivision of Lakewood Colorado.   If you are looking for tips and tricks on how to stage a home, this is not the blog to read. However, this blog is about the positive effect of staging a home to sell. I have been hosting an open house on the weekends for the Courseside development in Lakewood since December 2013. During the first three weeks of the open house, there was quite a bit of traffic with an average of around 20 visitors per day. However, the response was underwhelming to say the least. The home had not been staged and it was not a warm or inviting feeling for visitors. Although the home being newly built includes granite counter-tops in the kitchen and bathrooms, stainless steel appliances, brushed ...

Across the Denver Metro area, there is a shortage of inventory, meaning there are more buyers than there are homes for sale. One specific market that has benefited from these conditions is the Bel Mar neighborhood in Lakewood Colorado. Bel Mar is a specific neighborhood that has become very popular after the Bel Mar shopping Center was completed as part of an urban development project.  Bel Mar is a part of the Jefferson County School District and specific public schools for the area include Deane Elementary, O’Connell Middle and Alameda High School. Bel Mar currently has 9 homes for sale, 3 of which are ranch style, 3 are 2-story, 2 are town homes and 1 is a condo.  All of the homes listed were built between 1957-2013, have 1-4 bedrooms, 1-5 bathrooms and 633-4,458 square feet.   Thes...

Home values in Lakewood CO have been on the rise this year, up over 9% year-over-year.  This is great for a housing market that has been struggling in recent years, and offers hope for both current home owners and prospective home buyers. The question on everyone's mind is whether or not they should buy or sell right now.  Is the market truly going up in value, or are we destined for another plunge in values over the next few years?   In order to determine if it makes sense to sell your home, you need to determine what your home value is.  That's why we provide the Free eAppraisal system, which is a comprehensive analysis of your home's value compared to recent sales.   Once you have determined home values in Lakewood CO, and your home's value, it's time to figure out if it makes sense ...

Sometimes life gets in the way.  Today, I had to reschedule real estate related appointments in order to be at home to meet a contractor/carpenter.  Wouldn't you know that with the onset of cold weather, my back door shifted and produced a separation between the roof and the framing....not good. I like cool weather but not cold temperatures in my sunroom, so today, we are getting a new door as well as adjustments to the framing.  Wish me luck so I can get back to business tomorrow!

Recent CRS National meetings just concluded and I missed out!  The Council of Residential Specialists has been such a big part of my professional as well as personal life.  Due to family obligations, I have had to miss out on so much the past few years.  The best thing I ever did for my real estate career was get the CRS designation and secondly, to be active in the organization, not only locally but nationally. I pledge to do just that. I have developed so many friendships across the country and seeing all of the great photos taken at the recent meetings in San Francisco warmed my heart. I should have been there and I will be there in 2014. Congratulations to all my CRS friends on your awards and accomplishments.  Your leadership team is outstanding.
