 This young family called me late summer thinking about a new home, a brand new home, and we went to look at their options.   It wasn't long and they found one that was perfect.   It wasn't long, and they got their home on the market, and within 8 hours, received a cash offer.   The Buyer was also very flexible to work around the close date of their new home. I appreciate the opportunity to list and sell this gorgeous home, and wish the Sellers many wonderful years in their new home. This Pottery Barn home is just as cute in person as it shows in the photos!   This home has been remodeled, and all the work has already been done - the Buyer just needs to move in!  Located in Stroh Ranch, Parker, CO. 12918 S. Molly CourtParker, CO  80134SOLD for $430,000 This home features 5 bedrooms and ...

  The Town of Parker is Southeast of Denver approximately 30 miles with a population just over 50,677.    The Town of Parker is a quaint town that is commonly called a bedroom community.    It has the small town feel, yet has lots to offer.   You will find many locally owned businesses and restaurants.       Parker saw a dramatic decrease in sales for September compared to the previous month, which is pretty similar in what the the rest of the Denver metro area experienced this month.    The inventory has slightly decreased, and a bit normal for this time of year.                          **Photos courtesy of REColorado   September Sales - 163 homes sold ranging from $280,000 to $1,635,000 Day on Market - 18 days Average Sales price - $482,000 Sellers saw 100% to list price The highest ...

 This Pottery Barn home was a very popular home once it hit the market!  It took less than 8 hours, and saw a great offer and went under contract.   These Sellers truly take pride of ownership, and now are past the inspection contingency.   It is a cash offer, so we are through all contingencies and will await closing in October to coordinate with their new construction closing.   This home has been remodeled, and all the work has already been done - the Buyer just needs to move in!  Located in Stroh Ranch, Parker, CO. 12918 S. Molly CourtParker, CO  80134Priced at $435,000 This home features 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and an attached two car garage with 1,718 finished square feet above ground and 572 in the basement, 100% finished.   One of the bedrooms in the basement is smaller, but ...

 It is very special when past clients call and ask to see homes out of the blue!    Anthology is very close to their current property, and wanted to see a couple of homes that were in MLS.    They really liked the Alcott with the finished basement, but before they could get decisions made on financing and whether to list their home, etc.  it went under contract.  That was for the best, as a great two story came back after a buyer's financing fell through.   It has 4 bedrooms plus a loft and a study/den on the main floor and over 2,700 sf above ground plus an unfinished basement, which will give them the space they need for their growing family.   Their home has a 3 car garage and a huge lot backing to open space, which they love! It is at drywall now, and they got approval from Corporat...

 The walk through process is the important last step before handing over the keys to a new tenant to begin moving into their rental home.  This is the time to note any pre-existing damages in the home and to get a running checklist of issues with the home.  We conduct one walk through at the beginning of the lease and a final walk through at the end of the lease.  Working in Parker property management this procedure is crucial in ensuring smooth turnovers between families.                The move in walk through involves meeting the tenant when the house is empty and going room to room noting all areas of each space.  We check out the wall, floors, ceiling and doors as well as every cabinet, closet, appliance, light fixture and fans.  This part of the process can be very telling of your...
