No Showings on the Weekend Please - 02/27/09 08:37 PM
I have the opportunity to show some buyers homes this weekend. Ifound 7 properties that nicely matched their narrow criteria. I set up my showings. To my disappointment, 2 of the homeowners said NO SHOWINGS ON THE WEEKEND WHAT! I would guess this is not helping them sell. Maybe they understand things better than I. Please sellers I understand putting limits on showings, but nothing on the weekend. Agents with these sellers have their work cut out. I just know when I tell buyers they can't see a home, they either think I am a slacker or they totally write it (4 comments)

Fort Collins First time home buyers - 02/22/09 06:02 PM
This weekend I had the privelege to meet with two seperate couples, First time home buyers. One couple Is ready jump in. We looked at several homes that fit their needs. They where quite concerned about the whole first-time buyers tax credit thing. $8,000 dollars? And all we have to do is live in the home for 3 years? "They don't just give money away" I was able to hand them a printout from a lender in town detailing the provisions of the tax credit. They see it and mostly say OK. I encouraged them to talk with a tax pro (2 comments)

First time buyers today - 02/19/09 08:38 PM
The Keller Williams downtown office is located at 1220 S. College. Right at the corner of College and Pitkin. We are across the Street from Colorado State University. It is a great location for parents of CSU students to stop in and search for Kiddie condos or investment properties. Also we love to have have folks drop in and ask questions to see if they could afford to buy now, move up or downsize. Today a young couple came in and asked if there was any chance that they might afford a home. After finding out a little they figured that (0 comments)

Homes a Moving Fast - 02/09/09 09:51 PM
This last week we had some clients come to town to look for a home for their son who is a student at Colorado State University. We had sent them several listings in preparation of their visit. By the time they got to town the top 4 listings on the list went under contract. Their price range was under $220K. Before the second day of showings we noticed that a new listing came up. They went and saw it and within 24 hours we wrote a contract. The # 2 on the list disappeared over the weekend too. Right now buyers (2 comments)

Last night we had Turkey. Yes the whole bird. It was very nice, well cooked and best of all I didn't cook it. Very tasty too. Later I did get to carve the whole Turkey and store the leftovers.
