203K in Denver, What did you say? - 01/31/11 11:53 PM
I have been talking lots about the FHA 203K loan program recently. Mostly because it facilitates the buying of the type of homes my buyers are looking for. While having these conversations, it's amazing to me how many of people in the industry are unfamiliar with this loan product. My lender jokingly told me today that people refer to the 203K loan as how their house can help them retire. Well, not quite. So, what is the 203K loan program? It is an FHA loan program that allows buyers to include home improvement costs into their 30 year mortgage. I think (0 comments)

Generation Y Home Buyers in Denver - 01/24/11 11:36 AM
For the last few years, we all have been making adjustments to our lifestyles...removing luxuries, becoming more reserved in our spending, reallocating our investments, etc... Lately, I've been reading up on Generation Y and talking with a few members of this large group of the population. Many of the home buyers I work with are part of Gen. Y so it's important that I understand, or try to, what moves them. Literally and figuratively. For those who have trust in the real estate market, yes there are a few out there, here's what I've found those who live in Denver are interested in. (0 comments)
Why Buying a Home in Denver Now Makes Sense - 01/21/11 03:45 PM
Those in the real estate industry are aware of the opportunity that currently exists in our currently depressed real estate market. I find that the greatest challenge is educating the public on this opportunity. The Wall Street Journal recently published this article which does a great job highlighting the opportunity in today's real estate market. Here's the article: http://www.smartmoney.com/personal-finance/real-estate/-1295050347411/ Enjoy! (0 comments)

Lemi Shine Saves The Dishes - 01/13/11 11:49 PM
For the past few months, our dishes have come out of the dishwasher with a coat of white film all over them. I figured it was due to hard water, but did not have money in the household budget for a water softener. So I decided to live with "white" dishes. My in-laws were visiting over Thanksgiving and commented on my "white" dishes so I started researching again. Was the white film being caused by the dishwasher itself?...don't want to buy a new one of those either. After some quick online reading, I stumbled upon Lemi Shine reviews. People said it worked to (1 comments)
House/Home...Semantics? - 01/12/11 11:44 AM
For some time now, I have known that I love houses. Various types for various reasons. I have also come to the realization that I will never be able to live in all the countries, cities, states, neighborhoods, etc... where I would like to. And, so I live vicariously through my clients. As a Realtor, I have the privilege to walk through many houses. As I walk through these houses, I notice the architecture and the style. I notice the location and various other aspects. While looking at all this, what I notice most is how people turn these houses into homes. This is (3 comments)
