Arvada CO Home Sales $100,000 to $150,000 October 2011 - 10/31/11 01:23 PM
What this report tells you: Notable Arvada home trends are year-over-year reduction in both median days on market and percent distressed sales. In other words, Arvada homes in this price range are selling faster, and more of them are 'regular' sales (not foreclosures or short sales).

This report includes only detached single family Arvada homes that sold between $100,000 and $150,000. Eight Arvada homes sold in October 2011 between $100,000 and $150,000. 35 median days on market. 4 were foreclosures, (0 comments)
Arvada CO Home Sales Under $100,000 October 2011 - 10/31/11 01:07 PM
The following information was obtained from Metrolist on October 30, 2011. Click this link to see Arvada Home Sales in the other price categories. This report includes only detached single family homes that sold in Arvada CO for less than $100,000 in October. I probably won't continue to create this report, as only 1 Arvada home sold in this price range, $55,300 to be exact. It was a 1,730 square foot tri-level in Club Crest, sold complete with fire damage. 2010 saw two Arvada homes sell during October for $82,000 and $81,100. They were both foreclosures built in 1948 and 1917 respectively. (0 comments)

The POSITIVE ATTITUDE for the Weary Soul group gives you the opportunity to share the miracles in your life during this fall season with a creative writing challenge . Join in on the challenge with the FALL SEASON OF MIRACLES CONTEST | Positive Attitude for the Weary Soul Group My fall miracle actually began in September of 2010.

We had worried about going, since our daughter, Amanda, had a 9-month old baby and was struggling with how to deal with some devastating news she had recently received. Then, a phone call - Amanda was (7 comments)
Bought a House This Fall/Winter? It's Time to Start Gardening? - 10/29/11 06:58 PM
One of the great things about buying a house between Denver and Boulder this time of year, is you can spend a lot of time dreaming about and plotting out your garden plans, without having to do any actual work. After all, you may have enough actual work to do right now on the house itself! But back to gardening ... This post assumes there are no current garden beds already present, or at least nothing you want to save. If you do have gardens you may not know what will actually appear next spring and summer, unless the previous owner (8 comments)
When I Sell My House, Should I Disclose a Bad Neighbor? - 10/28/11 02:04 PM
If this question was tossed out into a group of real estate agents, the discussion would be long and heated. But it would boil down to, some say 'yes' - the seller has a duty to disclose a 'bad' neighbor - and some say 'no' - the seller doesn't need to disclose a 'bad' neighbor because it's not a material fact about the house. Personally, I think there would have to be some definition of 'bad'. I've heard a neighbor complain about another neighbors' habit of hanging laundry out on a line that can be seen from the street; meanwhile (0 comments)
Garden Tips for Autumn - Gardening Denver to Boulder - 10/26/11 11:21 AM
Bringing Outdoor Plants In (From O'Toole's Garden Center in Westminster, CO) A great way to extend the life of your patio pots is to bring them inside during the winter. You can bring in just about any tender plants you'd like to protect from the frost; begonias, geraniums, coleus, impatiens and tropicals just to name a few. Before you bring your plants inside, be sure to check them for any signs of bugs, especially fungus gnats (outdoor bugs love to stow away in plants for a free ride inside). Make sure you clean up any dead plant material or debris that can hide (3 comments)
Get Your Garden Ready for the Snow - Gardening Denver to Boulder - 10/25/11 09:51 AM
Yesterday was 80 degrees, today will be cooler but still a lovely day, and tomorrow - SNOW!! Up to 3 inches here in the small towns between Denver and Boulder. Our weather forecasts are usually pretty accurate as far as getting snow goes, but not the amounts. I'm almost more worried about the gardens of my Arvada home when they forecast a 'dusting' than a foot! Anyway, I got this email yesterday from O'Tooles Garden Center in Westminster, CO and I thought I'd pass their tips along. There are a few of my tips below these. Well, it looks like Old (3 comments)

What's Blooming Now - October Between Denver and Boulder - 10/03/11 05:39 PM
I have to admit up front, usually by now we've had at least one hard frost, usually have even had snow. So all the more tender plants are dead and then we have a few more weeks of summer-like temperatures. I've always wondered, how many bloomers would I still have if I could have just gotten them through the few nights of freezing temps? Well this year we've had none of that nonsense, so I can just look around and see the answer to my question. And the answer is - a LOT!! I love it! In normal years the mums (10 comments)
