If you have thought about selling your home this year, you still have time to do so! Typically, the market picks up again after Labor Day, although slower than the Spring market.    This year it is a bit slower than past years with the higher interest rates.    There are still homes going pending in a day or at least a few days.  But the key is to list it correctly!   This time of year isn't the time to "test the market", and list too high.    You could be sitting on your listing until 2024. Key Points -1.   List at a fair market value for the amenities and upgrades in your home.2.   Have the home ready to move in, so buyers won't have a reason to give you a lower offer.     Have the roof and furnace checked out so you know if you have issues.3.   Have your home looking like the BEST HO...

A Luxury Home can be identified differently in cities across the country, but in Denver, my Luxury blog posts will report on detached single-family homes listed in the Denver metro area for over $1.3 million.  (Over the years I have used $1 million as luxury, but with our rising home values, had the need to increase this amount.)  Some have mountain and/or city views, and some properties back to a golf course, or have water views all to compliment one's lifestyle.  (however, we don't have much water)  Some are updated with products from around the world, and some have expansive square footage or acreage.     Whatever a Buyer is looking for, most likely if you have over $1.3 million, you can find it in Denver or in the surrounding suburbs.     Here is how the luxury market fared for the ...

I have lived in the Denver metro area since I was 5 years old, so might as well be a native.    Have seen this "cow town" blossom into quite the metropolis and spread far and wide now.Here are some intriguing random facts about Denver - Mile-High City: Denver is often called the “Mile-High City” due to its elevation of exactly one mile (5,280 feet) above sea level. A brass cap on the steps of the Colorado State Capitol marks this precise point.State Capitol Elevation: The Colorado State Capitol building, constructed in the late 1800s, was intentionally built one step above the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., symbolizing that Denver holds a higher elevation than the nation’s capital.Larimer Square: Denver’s historic Larimer Square is home to some of the city’s oldest buildings and was ...

The stats are out for the month of July, and the numbers reflect a dip in sales for the month.   The inventory increased from last month but still could use more inventory in many neighborhoods!    This data is courtesy of Joan Cox - House to Home, Inc. I track data daily for the Denver metro area, and the amount of price reductions have been hovering around 1400-1550 each week (this number is larger than new listings coming on) and homes returning to market have been around 280 per week.   The inventory this time of year is seasonally low, and is around 6500 during the week, and have seen it as high as 6900.    (includes land up to high-end homes) See what homes are currently available - Active Homes for sale in Denver Buyers - If you have thought about buying a home this year, rates a...

Many students are going back to school, so real estate in general slows down this time of year.    We are still seeing around 1,000-1300 new listings each week.    We are also seeing 1300-1400 price reductions each week!   This is more than we are seeing with new listings!    It is better to price your home at fair market value, rather than price it high, and HOPE you may get more.   That is not the market right now. It is better to price it right from the beginning, and see offers and showings!   If you price it too high from the beginning, not only may you not see showings, but as you start reducing the price, buyers will see you "chasing the market down", and see motivation for a lower offer. Pricing it right means you will get the buyers looking for a home like yours, you will see r...

A school in the Denver metro area has been in the news over the last few days, as they have a room they call a "seclusion", "De-Escalation" or "incarceration" room. There is a room at an International School for Middle School students where a student needs to be separated from other students so they don't hurt others or themselves.    They have found locks on the outside of the doors to keep the student in the room.   This room is padded with gym mats on the floors and usually has a video feed so a person on staff is able to monitor the student.    The student is not restrained and remains in the room for around a 15-minute period. The principal of this school expressed concern that the school needs a program for students with severe emotional and behavioral disabilities.    He reached ...
