Sell Your Home Faster, and For a Better Price - 03/24/09 07:59 PM
To sell your home faster and for a better price is what everyone who puts their home on the market wants, right? Sometimes, after a day or two of showing houses to home buyers, I have to wonder. If that's what home sellers want, why do they show their homes in such unappealing condition? Why aren't they preparing the house for showings, and thereby adding value? The way I figure it, they must not 'get' the real cost of shabby showings. So, in an effort to motivate home sellers who think, "It's good enough for us this way, it's good enough (0 comments)
Colorado Homes - What's That House Selling For? - 03/23/09 05:20 PM
I hear that question a lot. After all, everyone's interested in real estate. But when someone says, "What's that house selling for?", I know what they mean to ask is, "How much are they asking for that house?" That's an easy question to answer.But what the house will sell for is often a very different thing.Just this morning, I studied the 'Active' houses and the 'Sold' houses in a neighborhood here in Arvada. While the price range for those for the comparative sales was $279,900 to $290,000, the price range for properties sold in the past six months told a different (2 comments)
Arvada Colorado Luxury Home Market Report - 03/23/09 04:42 PM
I’ve been telling you for awhile now that the real estate market has picked up in the area between Denver and Boulder Colorado, especially in the under $200,000 range. Unfortunately, it’s a different story for the luxury market. Someone told me that the over-$500,000 home market is dead. So I thought I’d see if that’s true for Arvada. Home sellers in this price point - take note. Homes sold at $500,000 and up - 2006: 104 2007: 90 2008: 50 Homes between $400,000 and $500,000 - 2006: 137 (0 comments)

Have You Hugged A Home Buyer or Home Seller Today? - 03/14/09 12:33 PM
I have had clients that are major huggers, and that's OK with me. I'm a hugger too! The clients I usually hug are family, friends from church or the neighborhood, or people going through an especially rough time. But hugging isn't always recommended in a professional relationship. :-( So I've found other ways to give the comfort and encouragement of a hug without getting physical. They usually boil down to slowing down, taking some time, and communicating. For instance, I had a buyer who found something wrong with every house I showed her. She said one house had too much grass (7 comments)
A real estate transaction is a lot like an ongoing conversation, especially for home buyers. The greeting is usually, "Will you show me this house I found online?" I respond by asking a few questions, but if I know them I will set the appointment to go and show. If I don't know them I want to meet them in the office first, of course, for safety reasons. Once we get inside the home, the conversation continues. I learn from them what they need, what they really want, what they like and don't like - at least as far as (0 comments)
Thinking of selling your house? I have a buyer! - 03/14/09 10:26 AM
I know, I know - that line has been used as a 'bait and switch' for decades, but I really do have home buyers with a specific situation - and I'm having trouble finding them a house. Maybe they could buy your home. First of all, they just signed a 6-month lease in their apartment, so we are looking for a short sale, or anyone who doesn't want to close until July or August, 2009. If you have a house you need to sell, but you owe more than it would sell for, you have a potential short sale. Feel free (0 comments)
