In some homes, there is a special room that adds long time benefits and comfort. Does your home have this special room? & A special blessing to you today. Our personal homes have evolved into a new breed of living. The cave man had a cave, a fire and no payments!. Then man evolved and build a log cabin, with a fireplace windows and doors ( no payments because of his  the sweat labor to build ) then man evolved into building modern day homes complete with indoor plumbing, lights , heat and AC !!! ..with payments !!!! I just love going through homes. I love to observe the many features people enjoy in their habitats.  I especially enjoy going through the parade of show homes. These homes are the best of the best with the newest and brightest ideas. These homes glow, from gourmet kitchens ...

  Ironically it has been said "You do not necessarily make money in real estate, when you sell a property, it is made when you bought it." In other words you bought it right. !!! In renting a property there is a similarity to the above statement. The ease of renting / managing a property is done at the time of renting the property, in other words getting the right - best renter in the property. The two worst mistakes a landlord or property manager can make are :   Rushing to fill a vacancy with a marginal renter. Picking the wrong tenant / renter .   It is best to wait for the renter you want. You do know the renter you want right. If not here is a few tips Good Job Good Credit Sufficient funds Takes care of their personal stuff   Hope these pointers help you out in renting !!!   "I CAN...

I have heard both sides of the good bad and ugly of the $8,000 tax incentive program. I have communicated with agents coast to coast on the good bad and ugly. GOOD >>> It put money in the hands of the people, not a big bank to foolishly waste. It encouraged home ownership. It brought people into the market which resulted in action in banking, building , lending and real estate. BAD >> Now that the contract date deadline has passed, our showings in Denver have dropped 35%. Our national sales for April ,May and June will remain constant. Katie bar the door on July sales, we will see a national drop - DA !!! - UGLY >> So once we see the sale drop in July, The US Congress , the President and Wall Street will all say  !!!! WOOPS !!!! at which hopefully they will reenact a new incentive plan,...

Listing in the making As time goes by... I was so blessed to receive a call from a gentleman I met 34 years ago. It was before my starting my career in Real Estate. We were on a construction project together.  Over the years we have ran into one another. Earlier this year they decided to make a move. I met with them and reviewed our Listing Information. They did interview another agent. I was blessed to receive the listing. We put their home on the market at a good price. It was a unique property and we received three offers. Two of the offers were cash.  The bottom line of the story is.... to stay in touch, have involvement with your friends and family, especially those from long ago !!

Keeping up with the Jones, especially in a recession, is not as easy as it used to be.  A new little Silver SUV pulls up to this new Rolls at a traffic light.  The driver of the SUV motions the driver of Rolls, to roll down his window. The SUV driver shouts out ...nice Rolls... The Rolls driver nods. The SUV driver shouts out... "Hey my SUV has the newest GPS system..do you have one" ?.. The Rolls driver nods. The SUV driver again shouts out..Hey my new SUV has a great sound system for my ipod, how is your's "? The Rolls drivers comments.."Just Fine". The SUV driver shouts back..."Hey my SUV has a double bed...do you have one in the Rolls "?...Just then the light turns green and the SUV speeds away.  Well The Roll's driver makes a face and thinks..I'll be darn if that little SUV is one ...

It seems like in today's market conditions, it is becoming harder and harder to list and close a property in less than 30 days.  Pricing it right, of course, is the main contributing factor to a quick successful sale, along with good preparation, so when a good offer comes in, everything is in order to have the ability to close in less than 30 days. My seller took alot of time to prepare the property so that it was very desireable to many of the potential buyers viewing it.  He also had all the warranties, repair records and receipts located ahead of time, which were available for any inquiries by a potential buyer.  This is just one step in the preparation in order to facilitate a close in less than 30 days. Not only did my listing in Shaw Heights in Westminster CO sell in 29 days from...

Why Do Sellers Like the New HAFA Program? * They will avoid foreclosure which will enable them to receive financing quicker for purchasing a   replacement home * Sellers Like the New HAFA Program because the terms are preapproved * They will not be expected to contribute any funds toward the short sale * Leinholders cannot subject sellers to a possible deficiency judgment in the future * Up to $3000 in moving costs allocated to seller * Insurer of the mortgage cannot collect additional funds from seller * Foreclosure procedure will be stopped while short sale in process

It was another wonderful Tuesday in Denver Colorado. The morning was over cast, yet as in Denver tradition, I knew the sun would come out tomorrow, thus the “Tomorrow I.. Love You” tune below. In reality the sun came out later in the day. It just goes to say ...the hope of tomorrow can bring sunshine today.

What is HAFA?  It stands for Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives.  It became effective April 5, 2010. What is the purpose of HAFA?  It's to offer other alternatives to foreclosure if the homeowner fails to qualify for, is not accepted into or defaults once they are in the HAMP program.  The two additional options are that of a Short Sale (SS) or Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure (DIL).  These two options have been standardized and streamlined, so homes won't sit empty for long periods of time, which will help preserve the condition and the value of the property.     What is a Short Sale?  It is when an agreement is made between a homeowner, who can no longer afford to make their monthly mortgage payments, and the mortgage company(ies), to sell the home to a qualified buyer for a purchase...
