homes denver boulder: How 'Cool' is Your Mid-Mod House? You Might Be Surprised to Know ... - 09/20/13 08:17 AM
Mid-century modern houses are cool?
Yes. Yes, they are.  And getting cooler all the time.
At least, that's the case where I work and live - between Denver and Boulder, CO.
If you own a mid-century modern home that you don't love, maybe you've dreamed about removing all that 40s or 50s kitsch and 'updating', but haven't gotten around to it yet.  Think carefully about what you are planning to do - many, many people love the charm of clerestory windows, wood plank ceilings, rounded doorways, huge windows, groovy knobs and handles, pastel-colored bathrooms, and boomerang countertops.
I understand that some … (24 comments)

homes denver boulder: Is 'Highest and Best' the Highest and Best You Can Get for Your Home? - 05/30/13 01:13 AM
Home-selling advice Denver to Boulder:  I don't believe 'highest and best' nets you the most you can get for the sale of your house, although it is the most common practice with local agents.
Agents have the freedom to decide on their own policies when it comes to multiple offer situations.  As a home seller, you should be aware of the policies the agent you choose follows, and why.
In a multiple-offer situation, most local agents notify each of the buyer agents that there are multiple offers, and that they should submit their client's 'highest and best' offer by such and … (2 comments)

homes denver boulder: What More Could I Have Done to Make My Offer the One Chosen? - 04/18/13 04:28 AM
When it comes to multiple-offer situations, I've been the buyer's agent more often than the seller's agent.  I always advise buyers to make the most attractive offer possible, especially when the local market is as hot as it is now.
My recent experience being the seller's agent in a multiple-offer situation (5 offers the first day on the market) was interesting because of the varied responses of the buyers agents.  One agent asked what more could have been done to make her client's offer the one chosen.
In this case, I had a clear-cut answer, involving possession after closing.
The winning … (0 comments)
