You decided it's time to sell your Arvada home, and invited me over to take a 'look-see'. Within five minutes it started. I struggled to control it, but the dreaded facial tics won.
"Why is your face twitching like that?"
I know that's what you must be wondering. And without a clue that what you just said caused the nervous tick.
"I spent $200,000 remodeling our home (in a $200-250,000 neighborhood). I need to get that back out of it."
"The house used to have three bedrooms but I tore out two bedrooms to make the most amazing master suite complete with an indoor hot tub! Don't worry - buyers will love it. After I repair the ceiling damage."
"This house is perfect. I know there's just dirt where the lawn should be, but absolutely nothing needs to be done to this house and I know it will bring top dollar!"

"The cause of tics is unknown, but stress appears to make tics more severe.

I write posts on real estate issues and local events in the Denver metro area, especially those communities between Denver and Boulder, as a public service. My hope is to give people an idea of the ‘flavor’ of our community, in case they’re new or moving to the Denver area.
I am a residential real estate agent, happily helping folks buy a house or sell a house in the beautiful and friendly suburbs northwest of Denver.
