The seasons are changing and Fall is approaching! Are you thinking about selling your home but worried the market isn’t as “hot” this time of year? Think again! Fall is a perfect time for selling your home!  Fall is still is a great time to sell your home, as mortgage rates remain decently low and homes have continued to sell remarkably quick. With so many variables and unknowns, the housing market can be unpredictable and no one can say for sure what the market will be like next Spring/Summer.  Why put off selling until next year in fear you missed the “right” time or in hopes that next year will be “great” again? Although most people tend to believe the housing market slows down when summer comes to an end, consumers will always be looking for their dream home.  There may very well be...

A Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program with FHA 203K Renovation Loans offered in Lakewood CO. Many are not aware of a special government loan program that is actually a part of FHA (Federal Housing Administration- a department within HUD). This FHA loan program allows the buyer or existing owner of a home to do significant amounts of remodeling or updating to their home without a higher cost second lien. The loan program does not allow for "luxury items" which are defined as items like a swimming pool or hot tub, etc. But you can repaint, replace flooring, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, add wallpaper, replace appliances and even add a room to an existing structure (which can significantly add to value as you increase the square footage of your home). Many advan...
