"Luxury items" such as a hot tub or a swimming pool are not allowed with this FHA loan program.

  As some of you might know, I am not a very big fan of open houses. I consistently read blogs from other AR members who express how successful their open houses are and I only wish we saw the same consistent results! We, unfortunately, usually get ZERO, that’s right, ZERO, turnout. This past weekend we decided to go the “full exposure” route for a two day open house “event”! You see, we have the last two available Lennar homes in Red Hawk at Castle Rock, Colorado listed for sale. One of them is a beautiful model home (2705 Mashie Circle) and the other is on a great lot with a HUGE wrap around porch (2714 Mashie Circle). The rest of the Red Hawk inventory sold out like hot cakes, but these last two have just been lingering a bit. So, we decided a two-day-weekend open house would be in t...

It's been 15 years since I took a road trip to God's country.  I'll never forget it... the kids and I were greeted by an August meteor shower... the very inspiration John Denver spoke of when he penned Colorado's most infamous song, Rocky Mountain High.  It was one of the best trips we ever took as a family... which is why I got a hankering to do it again just 2 weeks ago.  Colorado is a beautiful state, filled to the brim with majestic mountains, clear blue skies, and the most spectacular clouds I've ever seen.  You can't help but get a natural high from nature there.   We almost moved to Colorado many moons ago, but decided to relocate to Southern Oregon instead due to the close proximity to California and family.  I've questioned that decision a few times over the years, especially a...

Well, this week, we were proud to visit the newly finished GORGEOUS model and even list the first one being built in the neighborhood at 1011 Eveningsong Drive!!   It was like Deja Vu … but BETTER!!
