Friday Forclosures - 07/30/10 01:38 PM
Larimer County gave us 6 new forclosure listings to view today. A few of them did not have inside photos, but the video is worth watching for the final 2 listings. Remember, some forclosure houses are worth the investment of blood, sweat, and tears while other forclosures don't require much work at all. Watch the video and see for yourself. (0 comments)
Thursday Acreage - 07/29/10 12:39 PM
Thursday's 2+ acreage gave us 13 listings to view today. It was quite a range going all the way up to 2.135 Million. But wait 'til you see the views that these places have to offer! Enjoy! (0 comments)
Windsor Wednesday - 07/28/10 12:53 PM
It's Wednesday, that means it's time to look at the new listings in Windsor for the last week. There were 9 new listings, but only 6 of them had pictures posted by the agents. That means we are able to take our time looking at some very nice houses today. Most of them are newer construction and all of them are move-in ready. I love Windsor and I love these homes so I'm a little envious of anyone who chooses to purchase one of the finds shown today. (0 comments)
Ft. Collins Tuesday - 07/27/10 12:46 PM
We didn't have time to look at all 60 Ft. Collins listings today so I decided to focus on properties under $215,000. That gave us close to 10 listings to look at today. Just wait until to you see the Old Town bungalow, quite impressive with lots of charm. Be sure to visit tomorrow to view the Windsor properties. Enjoy! (0 comments)
Loveland Listings - 07/26/10 12:42 PM
There were 38 Loveland listings today so I had find a way to narrow it down. I searched for houses under $200,000; there were 13 of those but 4 didn't have pictures leaving 9 for us to look at today. You will see that in Loveland you will find a lot of bang for your buck. (1 comments)
Friday Forclosures - 07/23/10 01:09 PM
Enjoy our Friday Forclosures! We have 6 listings today, so we were able to take our time describing them to you. Please view the video so that you can see my favorite listing at the end. It's like a house I've never seen before. If you're interested I would love for you to call Nanci @ 970-622-1810 for a showing so that I (Daphne) can tag along. (0 comments)

Windsor Wednesday - 07/21/10 02:01 PM
Windsor Wednesday gave us 13 showings to look at today. But 2 of them did not have inside pictures to offer, so we will take a look at 11 of them. I was surprised to see that many of the homes are affordable with plenty of living space. A few of them are located in the downtown area, which is known for it's charm. But just wait until you see the last house I have to show you today; how's your own private beach sound? (0 comments)
Ft. Collins Tuesday Listings - 07/20/10 12:30 PM
I(Daphne) chose to take a look at the homes in Ft. Collins listed from $180,000-$230,000 since there were so many listings in Ft. Collins to choose from. So many of us (including myself) are looking for a home that is very afordable and perfect for our needs. Let's look at several of those right now. (0 comments)
Loveland had 33 new listings & I am providing the History of Loveland Solds since 2004 - 07/19/10 08:46 AM
Loveland had 33 new listing this week. It is down from the previous weeks. As we are approaching the "end of summer" yes, I said it even though we are reaching into the 90's on a daily basis (Thank goodnes for the 60's at night - glad I am not in Poenix!). Today a special treat with taking a look at the history of solds since 2004. It is a great time to be a buyer as there are some good deals and GREAT MORTGAGE RATES - UNDER 4.5%. It is truely unbelieveable. We will go over the history of rates (0 comments)
604 W. 33rd St - 07/16/10 04:28 PM
What a treat!!! We have a specific listing of a lovely ranch home on 33rd Street that we are excited to share with you today. It has been recently updated and we'd love to show it to you or someone you know that would want to purchase it. If you have any questions about what was said during the video or any additional questions about the property please feel free to email us at 970-622-1846. (2 comments)
Friday Forclosures - 07/16/10 12:47 PM
Before looking at today's post you should know that while yesterday's comments worked correctly, the video post was not the correct one. Friday is finally here, so let's take a look at our Friday Forclosures. Today we have 6 showings. One in Livermore, 1 in Ft. Collins, 1 in Windsor, and 3 in Loveland. Continue to be patient with me (Daphne) as I continue to learn the ropes. Enjoy. (0 comments)
Properties with 2 Acres or more in Larimer County as narrarated by Daphne. - 07/15/10 12:46 PM
Nanci asked me (Daphne) to post my video comments about the 2+ Acre showings today. I have been working for Nanci for 4 weeks now but I'm coming from zero real estate background. I enjoy seeing what is out there to view as I'm sure you do as well. Watch the video and wait for the treat at the end. I'll give you a hint: The Steamer was his claim to fame. (0 comments)
Windsor & Stats of Greeley & Weld County - 07/14/10 09:12 AM
Windsor had 17 new listings this week. There was even some completed new construction. The stats we are going to reveiw are for Greeley/Weld County. That is the closest that my mls breaks down the numbers. The interesting one to review is the number of Lot sales. Residential sales did not down, but not as fast as Fort Collins. (0 comments)
Fort Collins had 65 new listings - lets look at some tools today - 07/13/10 08:18 AM
Fort Collins had 65 new listings this past week. That is too many properties to look at so we are going to take a look at some other things. First let’s start with the statistics from 2004 on. It is interesting to see the decrease in the number of houses sold over the years. Then we will view one house and it’s pictures. Then we will also view that same house from a link on my web page at www.SellsRealEstate.com that shows the prices of houses that surround this house. You can take a look at almost any house in the (0 comments)
Loveland had 40 new listings this week - 07/12/10 08:29 AM
Loveland is staying consistant with 40 new listings this week. Everything from a small $85,000 to about $500,000 with some new proposed construction over that amount. There are a couple of properties on water. My favorite pick today is a house that is beautiful inside. Has a main floor master, finished basment, formal dining room, a fun kitchen with a double sided fireplace. Since it is near a lake, one feel that maybe it should be on the lake, but it is not. It is perfect for someone who wants a small yard. It is not my listing and the Ires (0 comments)
Foreclosure Friday takes a look at Bank Owned and this week Short Sales in Larimer County - 07/09/10 10:10 AM
Foreclosure Friday. We are also covering the new short sales in Larimer County. Typically with bank owned properties, they respond much quicker than short sales. A big part of this is that they are NOT a 3rd party (being the owner) and do not have to approach the investor to take less than what they are owed. The investor may be themselves, or they may be just servicing the loan (while it is still in their name). The fact that I am an ex-banker (and lender) helps me understand the overall picture.

Windsor Colorado had 16 New listings townhome to large homes that are a short sale - 07/07/10 08:40 AM
Windsor, Colorado had 16 new listings his week. A great short sale at $750,000. Everything from a townhome at $179,900 up to the short sale. Great places in Highland Meadows and a short sale in Bison Ridge. I want to talk about townhomes vs condo. Unfortunately, condos are currently more difficult to finance. Since you are buying the "air space" a process must be done to look at how many units are owner occupied. With a Town house you actually own the building and the land underneath and there is NO requirement for ownership percentages. If a condo association does not (0 comments)
Fort Collins had 50 new listings this week - 07/06/10 08:45 AM
Fort Collins had 50 new listings this week which is down. The 4th of July affected listing activity, showings (which were down) and may now be the start of buyers realizing that summer is just about over. Especially when one wants to be in their new house before school starts. Mortgage rates continue to be amazing! It is truely a great time to purchase your dream home....cautiously! Feel free to contact me with your real estate questions! (0 comments)

Foreclosure Friday in Larimer County - Bank owned properties - 07/01/10 11:43 PM
Foreclosure Friday. There are only 6 new bank owned properties listed this week in Larimer County. And I get to pick on the agents a bit with the job they do promoting the properties! Weld County had 20 new bank owned properties and I did not try to review each of those. I will start keeping an eye on those too. I think the banks were pretty focused on trying to sell houses and get them off their books by quarter end. An important time for banks! (2 comments)
