Electronic signatures - 11/14/09 04:04 PM
One of the improvements to our advanced customer service is the implementation on the electronic signature option for our clients. This has been a great option for many of our clients. Today many people travel frequently and this is a great tool to keep transactions on track. Another benefit is helping folks who are relocating to Fort Collins sign documents with the least possible trouble. One of my favorite uses is to have someone from across town who wants to sign something, I can be at home in the evening with my family, send the e contract and not leave home. (2 comments)

We will se if the arm still works but I am pretty sure I wont be near the fastest guy on the field. My hope is that while we have fun, I want to walk into the office Monday, morning without assistance or crutches. I think (0 comments)

Thinking about a new home? - 11/09/09 04:15 PM
Most discussion lately has been geared toward The benefits to first time home buyers but now it is time for current homeowners to take note! If you are a home owner and need or want to sell, It is time to talk to a local professional. Today, there are buyers becoming frustrated due to lack inventory. Let me show you the data the demonstrates that inventories are low and prices are trending up. The new extension of the first time buyers tax credit and its expansion to include a credit for existing home owners of up to $6500 dollars will do nothing (3 comments)

Seller Tax credit Close to Reality - 11/05/09 11:02 AM
Seller's can get a piece of the action with a home buyers tax credit. If you are looking to sell your home and buy a new one, and have owned the home at least five years, you could qualify for up to $6500.00 in tax credits. The Senate has approved the measure and it is awaiting Congressional approval and Presidential signature, but this could help a lot of people transition from one home to the next. The Seller/ buyer would have to sign a purchase agreement by April 30, 2010, and close by June 30. This is a new development and (0 comments)

Buyer tax credit one step closer - 11/05/09 10:48 AM
The US Senate has voted unanimously to extend the First time home buyers tax credit. This would extend the opportunity until well into the spring. Buyers have until April 30, 2010 to get a home under contract and June 30 to close! This is still pending House approval and Presidential signature but I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED! First time buyer seminars filling up now!
