Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using Telluride CO FHA 203k Renovation Loans.Many people are not aware of a special government loan program that is part of the Federal Housing Administration or FHA(a department within HUD). A buyer or existing home owner can do meaningful amounts of remodeling or updates to their existing home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program.However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. Although, you can repaint, replace flooring and appliances, add a room to an existing structure (which can add to value tremendously as you increase the square feet of your home) as well as remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms.This loa...

6-10 LL Nunn A few days back in my post about Trout Lake, I mentioned a historical factoid that Trout Lake water was used to generate the first AC power station in the country. Today I drove up to the Gold King Basin, the site of the mine that inspired the story.  So now, as Paul Harvey might say, here's the rest of the story. In 1881 a washed up Leadville restaurateur named Lucien Lucius Nunn made his way to Telluride, Colorado to see what he could roust up in this newly booming mining town. During the next decade, LL Nunn opened a law practice, became a real estate developer, opened a bank and started managing the Gold King Mine, in the mountains south of Telluride.   Now there were a lot of mines operating around that time ultimately  digging over 350 miles of interconnecting tunnel...

7-6 Telluride 4th There's nothing quite so quintessentially American as a small town 4th of July celebration - especially when the small town knows how to do it up big. Telluride Colorado has been celebrating the 4th in a BIG way since way before my half century of memory comes into play. In fact the Telluride Fire Department, who puts the shindig on, celebrated it's 130th birthday this year so they've got a plenty of experience doing this sort of thing. The 4th here always starts with a bang - a big bang called the Powder Monkey Breakfast. The firemen - who have been up most of the night tending to the 100's of pounds of beef roasting in an underground pit, wake up the rest of the town by lighting off a few sticks of dynamite around 6 a.m.. The festivities actually get rolling with a ...

In the realm of real estate websites, there are several goals every online portal should strive to deliver to real estate consumers. A real estate website should help consumers enjoy an easier search experience, allow them to quickly find the information they want, offer user-friendly Telluride property search tools and enable the website visitor to be in greater control of every aspect of research and fact-finding while assuring them their personal identity will always be respected. I'm told that means my website needs to be "sticky". But not in an adversarial way. Nice People are "Attractive" While reading my Telluride newspaper website, I stumbled upon an article that caught my eye. The title was "Literally Speaking." The article in a nutshell is about being "nice" in all our relatio...
