The heat is on this Summer and what better way to cool down than to enjoy a dip in one of our many Colorado swimming holes! That crisp, clean, and refreshing Colorado water is a perfect way to chill out when the temperatures are rising. We've dipped our toes in the water and reviewed some of our favorite spots around Denver. Do you have any favorites that we missed?

Boulder Creek - Head over to Ebin G Fine Park in Boulder for a dip in the cool waters of the Boulder Creek that snakes its way through town. Bring a picnic to enjoy riverside while you dip your feet in the chilly river. Watch tubers come floating by and fly fisherman reel in trout. It's a little piece of bliss on the river.

Among its many impacts, COVID-19 has had a pronounced effect on the housing market. Low home inventory and high buyer demand have driven home prices to an all-time high. This has given an unexpected financial boost to many homeowners. However, for some renters, rising home prices are making dreams of homeownership feel further out of reach. In fact, the gap between homeowners and renters has never been wider. If you own a home, you are absolutely loving this market and watching your home value increase by thousands of dollars a month. Renters are between a rock and a hard place, rising rents are hitting their pocketbook while rising home prices are making homeownership more and more unattainable. 

As a homeowner, it’s important for you to understand…

Officially, Denver has 78 neighborhoods. We've seen some interesting ones spring to life in the past few years, RiNo, LoHi, LoDo, SoBo, and even the newly formed SloHi (Sloans Lake & Highlands). With so many neighborhoods to choose from, how can you decide?

A web-based company out of Pittsburgh called "Niche" analyzes and ranks neighborhoods based on Public School Grades, Crime & Safety, Housing, Good for Families, Diversity, Walkability, Public Transport, and many other factors to come up with a neighborhood score. They've recently analyzed Denver and here are the top 25 neighborhoods to live in according to Niche. Feel free to click on the neighborhoods to see the available homes for sale in that area.

It's no surprise that Denverites love their four-legged companions and like to take them just about everywhere they go (including to work!). And with so many great trails just a short drive from Denver, you will often see just as many dogs on busy hiking trails as humans (we are certainly not complaining!). 

While dogs are allowed on plenty of trails, it is always wise to do a little research before you load up the car for a day of outdoor adventure, pup in tow. National Parks (e.g., Rocky Mountain National Park) do not allow dogs on trails or in the backcountry and some other trails outside of these parks will follow suit. Be sure to look online or check the signs at the trailhead to make sure it is a safe area to bring your furry friend to. And…

In the words of Will Rogers, "You never get a second chance to make a first impression." Getting your curb appeal right is just as important - it's the first thing a potential buyer sees when they walk up to a new listing. "I once had a buyer turn around; they wouldn't even go inside - and the home met all of their wants and needs," said Jesse Dixon, an experienced buyer's agent in our office. So many sellers only focus on the interior when prepping their home for sale and altogether forego the exterior. 

Great curb appeal not only makes your home the star of the neighborhood, but it can also improve its value and help you sell it for more. Whether you're thinking of listing your home or want to make your home the envy of your neighbors, here are five…

May 2021 Update: 

The big news this month is the average price of a single-family home in the Greater Metro Denver area is up 28% to $692,900. This could easily surpass $700,000 by the time we release our stats in June!. While active listings remain at a slim 2,390 - we did see a significant improvement over March (up 12% month-over-month). Surging demand and low-interest rates remain the driving factors for low inventory. New listings saw another…

The Denver real estate market is one of the fastest-moving in recent memory. With record-low inventory in many market segments, we’re seeing multiple offers—and sometimes even bidding wars—for homes in the most sought-after Denver neighborhoods. This has led some sellers to question the need for a real estate agent. After all, why spend money on a Denver listing agent when it seems that you can stick a For Sale sign in the yard then watch a line form around the block? 

Some buyers may also believe they’d be better off purchasing a property without an agent. For those seeking a competitive edge, proceeding without a buyer’s agent may seem like a good way to stand out from the competition—and maybe even score a discount. Since the seller pays the buyer…

Red Rocks shows are back baby! It's hard to contain our excitement, a year without Red Rocks shows is a year too many. For Denver locals, attending Red Rocks shows is a "right of passage" with many of us waxing poetic about the amazing shows we have been to in the past. It's a local Coloradan "notch in the belt" if you will - and everyone we talk to is beyond excited to get back for shows. There are some changes this year to make it safe for everyone to attend a show, most notable is a reduced capacity of 2,500 (normal capacity is 9,525). Short of fewer tickets being available, it will be a different and dare I say unique experience to be there with 74% fewer people. For one, you won't need to get there as early to find a good seat. Masks will be required…
