Opening on July 12th of this year, Denverites will rejoice in the rebirth of Union Station.  Amtrak is open, Market St Station is closing in May and all busses will come and go from the massive underground 22 bay bus station.  In 2016 you'll be able to connect from Union Station to the airport via Light Rail. Once again Union Station will be the main transportation hub that it was in days gone by.

2013 saw incredible change in the Denver real estate market as we crawled our way out of the recession and house prices started once again to climb. Home owners rejoiced and the market was on fire. What ensued was bidding wars, waived contingencies and general pandemonium to buy a home. That's not to say every home flew off the shelves, only those that were properly priced, in good locations and showed well. I'm looking forward to seeing what 2014 has in store with ultra low inventory and super high demand. Fasten your seat belts.

Do you want to sell your home quickly?  Don’t want to hire a professional stager at $100/ hour?  Here are 5 sure fire tricks that will help get your home sold quickly without spending too much.

1. Take Down Your Personal Photos – I watch my clients stare at photos of the owners and their grandparents, kids, cousins, parents, etc.  They then try to get all CSI to figure out who lives there.  I want my clients to see themselves in the home rather than you.  Take down those photos and get your religious items off the walls.

2. Get Rid of Your Clutter – Stuff collects over the years on counters, shelves, closets, etc.  Get rid of 90% of it.  You want someone looking at your home rather than the titles of your CD
