You're under contract on your new home, earnest money has been delivered - and now it's time to schedule your home inspection (yikes!). The home inspection is the most critical step for most home purchases, as you will almost always find issues (we have yet to see a perfect home inspection report). Even new construction homes can have many significant issues that could cost thousands in future repairs. 

If you are working with one of our top-rated real estate agents, they can send you a list of their recommended inspectors so you can do your own research before selecting one. Online reviews are also very important, look at the most recent reviews to see how they are performing recently. And if your agent has recommended not getting a home inspection,…

You've done all the preparation to sell your home, and now a buyer is coming to see it for the first time, eek! You may have the best home on the block, but if you are not show-ready you can turn off potential buyers. As the saying goes, you get one opportunity to make a great first impression. 

Selling your home can be stressful, and showings can be the culprit. Some showings can come at the last second, but those are often some of the best opportunities. Having your home show-ready first thing in the morning will prepare you for the unexpected ahead. Have a plan of where you will go during showings, especially if you have small kids and pets. Ask a neighbor if your dog can hang out in their backyard, it's always best to remove any pets from your home…

Put simply, home staging means preparing your home for a potential buyer. It is setting the stage for a potential buyer, and making sure your home's photographs and showings are at their fullest potential. It involves the design, decorating, rearranging furniture, and finding the perfect aesthetic for your home. The goal of staging is to make the home as appealing as possible to the most potential buyers.

According to the National Association of Realtors, staging a home prior to listing it can result in a faster and more profitable sale. In fact, the Real Estate Staging Association estimates that professionally staged properties spend 73% less time on the market, receive more foot traffic, and typically sell for more money.

October 2021 Denver Market Update: 

The Denver real estate market is still going strong; it feels a lot more like a Summer market here than a Fall market (just like the beautiful fall weather we are experiencing). Denver continues to be a hot place to live, and relocation buyers continue to fuel the market demand. Demand in September was near an all-time high (only off by 1% compared to last year),…

When you think of great wines, you think of California, France, Italy, Spain, and Colorado. Colorado? Indeed! We may not have the best Cabernets or Pinot Noirs, but we do have some lesser-known varietals that will rival the best in the world. Colorado Cabernet Franc is floral and herbaceous to the nose and loaded with notes of dark ripe plum with a toasty oak finish (typically found in the Loire of France), Colorado Merlot is wildly unique, the skins develop an intriguing array of spice from being at high altitude, and Teroldego (an Italian red variety) has a superb deep black cherry note.  A few other grapes to keep an eye out for include Syrah, Petit Verdot, Bordeaux blends, Rieslings and Gewurztraminer.

Selling your Denver home when you still need to shop for a new one can feel daunting to even the most seasoned homeowner––especially when the demand for new homes keeps rising, and the inventory of Denver homes keeps dwindling.

September 2021 Denver Market Update: 

In August, the Denver real estate market continued to be unique and unexpected compared to previous "typical" years. The inventory of homes is still low, and demand remains very high. Sellers have the advantage in nearly all price segments. It will be interesting to see if we will have an uptick in inventory after Labor Day, as has been the case historically.

Fall doesn't technically begin until September 22nd, but the leaves will start turning in Colorado well before then. For many Coloradans, Fall is a special time of year. And the first sign of Fall is always that wave of colors along the Colorado Mountainsides. 

As the air gets crisper and the pumpkin spice lattes start frothing - it's time to start thinking about some of the best leaf-peeping spots in the state.

When do Leaf Colors start to Change?

Starting in mid-September, expect to see Aspens turning gold at elevations from 8,000 to 10,00 ft above sea level.

Typically Northern Colorado peaks first, and a wave of color moves South through the state. However, keep in mind that moisture levels significantly affect when leaf colors start to…
