nicholson home team: Water/Colorado - 10/02/07 01:44 PM
Mean what you write!! info on a class I took awhile back. Hope this is informative Like it or not, Realtors are often the first stop for water resource information during a property transaction. Colorado is the highest state in the nation and all of the water flows out of the state. There are only two states that happen too, Colorado and Hawaii. You have to put water to use or you cannot keep the water rights. i.e. Beneficial Use! A water right is a property right to make beneficial use of a particular amount of water within a specified time. A (1 comments)
nicholson home team: New Build and Why I need a Realtor? - 10/02/07 01:40 PM
Why you should use a realtor for previously owned homes: A realtor is able to provide information on all homes for sale in the market! This includes for sale by owner homes and new homes!A realtor will help you validate listing information and market values.A realtor will prepare, and submit your offer with your best interest in mind.A realtor will coordinate the closing process from contract to closing, creating a much less stressful event for you. Using a realtor costs you nothing! Know these important facts before signing a contract! Most builders hire on-site sales people to provide general information, copies of floor (0 comments)
nicholson home team: Procuring Cause?? - 10/02/07 01:37 PM
Procuring Cause in Colorado as I know it. I was recently in a class on Procuring Cause and became aware of the misconception of the subject. This is what I got out of it! Several class members seemed to be confused and had this wrong. There are so many items that come about in arbitration to cause a panel to consider procuring cause. To discus what procuring cause is not, one it is not who first showed the property! From what I understand this concept is the threshold rule which was determined in the 70's. Well, no more! Who showed the property (6 comments)

nicholson home team: Motorcycle Riders of Colorado ........... Alice Radio.....BEWARE!! - 09/10/07 01:54 PM
Fellow Riders, It has come to my attention that the past two mornings DJ Howie at 105.9 FM (Alice) has been blatantly spreading hate-speech towards bikers - sport bike riders in particular. As if this was not bad enough, he has actually been advocating that car drivers take violent action against sport bike riders by pushing them off the road or opening their doors. (I did not hear the broadcast personally). Apparently this DJ is not all that familiar with the First Amendment. If he is advocating violent action he is irresponsible as well as in violation of the law (and yes (4 comments)
