 The stats are out for the month of October, and it was another strong month!   As of almost the end of November, we are still experiencing low inventory (hovering around 2,500 on weekends), down 52.3% over one year ago. I have had potential Sellers who want to list and buy, but are fearful of not finding a replacement home, so they stay put and remodel.   But when they do list, they sure are seeing a great bottom line!   Multiple offers are still happening, just not at the same pace, it did earlier this year. This data is courtesy of Joan Cox - House to Home, Inc. Lately, we are seeing homeowners pricing their homes a bit closer to fair market value, and seeing fewer price reductions right now.   Between Thanksgiving & New Year's is the best time to be a non-contingent buyer.   The buy...

 Saturday, November 30th has been set aside as Small Business Saturday, and urge everyone to stop at a business today that is locally owned, rather than the big box stores. In celebration of this annual event, try to invest in your local stores and support those small business owners and help fuel our local economy!  This should be a very busy retail shopping weekend, so bring your entire list with you while shopping locally!   Support those neighbors and friends who own small businesses --- show your support!  The big box stores have saved their advertising dollars for this time of year, and are able to grab sales by attracting those potential buyers to the big malls and stores.   Search out the small business to support the local economy!

Moving from one state to another can be very stressful, but the REALTOR® you choose can make all the difference!  If you know the area, great, but if you don't, we need to explore areas so you get a lay of the land.   Know where the shopping is located, hospitals, dining, and entertainment.   How far do you have to drive to arrive at work, or are you able to work from home.   That makes a huge difference.   Do you have school-aged children?    Check out the schools to see which ones would be acceptable, and we will look ONLY in those areas.  If you have a special needs child, you may need to call a few school districts to get a good fit.   Do the kids have sports or other functions?   How far away will these be? THEN comes the specifics for the home!   What style of home do you prefer? ...

I started delivering pies a few years ago to clients who closed in the past year, along with some of my clients that have given me so much business.    This year was no exception, and Wednesday I left early to pick up the pies from Village Inn and started delivering.   I left enough time to "catch up" and drive time between clients.   I also had many Sellers move out of state this year, so sent gift cards to them. Was SOOO much fun seeing these clients and they showed me what home improvements they have done, and some are finalizing their move-in.   The gratitude towards these clients was SUCH a wonderful feeling yesterday!    I had to chuckle at my first delivery to a past client I have known close to 20 years.  I sold her home in Broomfield this year, and she said she needs to buy ano...

  Happy Thanksgiving!         Hope everyone enjoys a safe and peaceful day with friends and/or family.  Today I am grateful I can share an abundance of food on my table, have a roof over my head, enjoy a good real estate market, and am surrounded by friendship.      Luckily with the vaccine, families are able to gather this year a bit more safely.   Thankful I will have a warm meal on the table, and don't have to travel far to enjoy this day! May your life be filled with good things to be thankful for as ours are filled with thankfulness for you. We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.      Frederick Keonig

 Stroh Ranch is a highly desirable community in South Parker 80134.     This community is located West of Parker Road (Highway 83) between Hess Road and Stroh.    You will find single-family homes, condos, and townhomes.   Many of the homes in Anthology (to the West of this community) have this legal description and will show up in searches.  You will know they are in Anthology, as they were all built in the 2000s.  There are currently 1,292 homes in Stroh Ranch.   If you commute to downtown Denver, your commute will be 30-45 minutes depending on traffic and weather.   Snow will increase this drive time.   However, if you catch the light rail at I-25 and Lincoln, this commute will be shorter.   There are two hospitals within close proximity of Stroh Ranch - Sky Ridge which is in Lone Tr...
