In today’s Wall Street Journal section of The Denver Post is a column written by Jeff Opdyke. “A Trip - And a Change of Heart” tells the story of his unfortunate experience in trying to relocate to Hong Kong. Unlike the New York Times, WSJ blocks out online readers unless they subscribe, so I don’t have a link to the column. Opdyke tells of the difficulties of selling his home, of finding the proper school situation for his children, and of locating a suitable apartment in Hong Kong. It sounds like is was a heart wrenching decision for his family, (0 comments)
New comers and old timers alike boost Downtown with an enthusiasm bordering on religious fervor and no wonder: for anyone who dreams of a true urban lifestyle, the allure of this pedestrian-friendly district grows ever more compelling as new hotels, lofts, entertainment venues, restaurants, and shops continue to spring up between Lincoln and Larimer Streets. Conversions of historic office buildings into condos, lofts, and exclusive penthouses plus a rash of new residential construction have transformed Downtown into a vibrant community with a significant population. That might come as a surprise to some, but current statistics show the number of (1 comments)
Denver Real Estate Stats - May ‘08 - 06/18/08 09:13 PM
The Denver real estate market is like the old saw about a riddle wrapped in a conundrum wrapped in an enigma. I wish my crystal ball was working better, but I’ll have to rely on instinct, experience and my best guess. Here are some statistics taken from the Denver MLS for May 2008: The upshot is that we have 9 1/2 % fewer properties on the market than we did a year ago, and .62 % fewer than the month before. The dreaded “over-supply” of inventory seems to be diminishing during the season one would expect to see more properties coming (6 comments)

Buyers Beware - Market Turnaround Ahead - 06/08/08 08:39 PM
Multiple offers? New listings gone in under a week? Is this the Denver real estate market? Yes! In our medium price ranges, $250,000 to $800,000, things are going fast. I’ve had several brokers in my office tell me that they’ve been in competitive bidding situations recently. More than one - sometimes they’ve actually had two or three competitive bids on houses for the same buyers. That must be surprising for buyers who read the main-stream media and think they should still be underbidding for everything. Buyers - you need your broker’s advice more than anytime now. Ask to see recent comparable (6 comments)
Greenwood Village, Colorado - 06/05/08 10:00 PM
Greenwood Village As one of the region’s most desirable and prestigious communities, Greenwood Village knows few rivals. Originally a quaint collection of orchards, dairies, farms, and gravel roads, the Village still exudes a charming country ambiance in the form of an extensive system of interlacing parks, greenbelts, parkways, and biking, hiking, and equestrian trails. Proudly focused on a vibrant, progressive lifestyle, Greenwood Village boasts an ideal location, robust economy, and nationally renowned school districts — both the Cherry Creek and Littleton districts have higher than average ACT and SAT scores. Besides the views, highlights along the 40 miles of trails that (0 comments)
