Cost vs. Value - Will Your Remodeling Project Payoff? - 11/15/10 01:26 PM
I get calls all the time asking for advice on whether it would be smart to do a particular remodeling project around their home. Many times it is tough for me to make the call for them. I look at houses all the time and see what buyers like but in most cases improvements don't pay off right away. For instance according the Remodeling Magazine's Cost vs. Value Report 2010-2011 a two story addition in the Denver area will cost $155,903 and give added resale value of $118,301. This means that an owner could expect to get about 76% of the (0 comments)

The Simple View on Foreclosures - 11/01/10 07:27 PM
Foreclosures have been in the news for a number of years. It goes in cycles. I bought my first condo in 1992, it was a HUD foreclosure. The combination of loans with adjusting interest rates, too easy credit a few years back, overly optimistic buyers, falling values and a deep recession have brought us foreclosures in waves that keep on coming. The latest in a long line of foreclosure news is the robo signer scandal, and the revelations that foreclosure sales were not processed properly therefore the sales are not valid. I'm not an attorney and I'm not an expert of foreclosure laws or proceedings but (0 comments)
