The Denver housing market has been so tight for the last couple of years but it slowed down this summer.  Many buyers are not aware that there is more inventory on the market now and prices have actually go down this summer.  If you thought you could not buy a starter home, condo or townhome, it may be time to look at the options and see if home ownership now is within your reach.  It is widely anticipated that mortgage interest rates will start rising next year which will offset the drop in prices.  This could be the best window for … (0 comments)

condos: Downsized living in Denver - buying an attached home - 09/11/17 07:20 AM
As home prices continue to increase in Denver, a single family home with the features a buyer is looking for is becoming increasing out of reach financially.  Due to the cost of land and infrastructure costs for builders, building afforable homes in the Denver Metro area has become difficult.  It is much more cost effective to build attached homes.   This is especially true in the most desireable locations where land costs are the highest. 
Builders  indicate that condo building had been down the last few years due to the high risk of litagation but under new legislation this risk has been … (2 comments)

condos: Decluttering and downsizing your home - 09/06/17 07:28 AM
There is a saying that cluttered surroundings lead to a cluttered mind.  I know it at least can lead to a stressful mind.  It can be so easy to let our collection of stuff pile up and then it becomes an overwhelming task to start the clean up.  The key can be to start with a small space or area that we know we can sort through and clean up successfully and get started.  Maybe there is a drawer or small closet that we can identify as a place to start.  Or another approach is to identify one type of item … (5 comments)

condos: Help with downsizing household - 08/31/17 10:24 AM
If you are thinking of moving into a smaller home because you are an empty nester or just ready for an easier lifestyle with less home maintenance and perhaps also less expense.  The thought of downsizing your household accumulation can be very overwhelming.  I have experienced this myself and also seen others ready to throw in the towel before they start or get stuck in the process and want to give up.  It can also cause marital and family disputes because everyone has a different opinion about what should be saved or purged.  
Fortunately, there are companies and individuals that specialize … (11 comments)
