The last true Parade of Homes in Denver was in Solterra back in 2008. Since then, it's really been used to showcase different new build communities and the model homes for each. Are you looking for an actual Parade of Homes type experience? Look no further than the Mighty Millions raffle home for 2022. The home is located in Montane, an enclave of luxury homes near Red Rocks in Morrison.

February 2022 Denver Market Update: 

January 2022 ushered in continued low inventory coupled with the anticipation of rising interest rates. Prices remain high, up 9% for single family homes over this time last year. Anecdotally, we hear that housing competition remains fierce and that available homes are quickly going under contract. It will be interesting to see if inventory will increase earlier…

Inspirato is a private vacation club that allows its members access to its portfolio in 175+ destinations and includes over 900 vacation options (and Inspirato Pass offers more than a million luxury vacation options for $2,500/month). Their homes are incredible, like this $8.7M standalone home just a five-minute drive from downtown Aspen and ski lifts, or this stunning villa in Sonoma overlooking surrounding hillsides and local vineyards. They have epic destinations like this all over the world (someday I will book Villa Pliniana in Como di Lago Italy, someday).

There's a lot to consider when selling your Denver home, from the real estate market and appraisals (to where you'll go next). However, one key factor that is often overlooked is overall home design. It's usually one of the first things buyers notice when they walk into a home, and it's also a detail that you, as a seller, can easily control.

According to Realtor.com's 2022 housing market forecast, home for-sale inventory is supposed to increase from last year, as will the projected number of overall sales. This is welcome news to Denver home buyers facing the worst inventory in recent history, battling all-cash offers - and pending interest rate increases.

LoHi is short for the "Lower Highlands" neighborhood located just west of the central downtown area. Technically speaking, it's the neighborhood that is sandwiched between LoDo and the Highlands, or for those who are more familiar with the streets of Denver, the area that extends south of Platte Street, across I-25 and blends into 32nd Street. 

 

LoHi has quickly become your Denver destination for some of the best restaurants and bars in the city. The overall vibe is more San Francisco than Denver, and the area's hills certainly add to that feel. Those hills also lend to some of the best views of the Downtown area you will find anywhere.

As a homeowner, it's inevitable that at some point you will need to do some touch-up paint. Whether it's covering a hole from an unmounted picture, or the scuffs and scrapes that walls and baseboards take along the way. And when you sell your home, doing a little touch-up paint (and wall cleaning) will go a long way to show that you're a responsible homeowner.

And nowadays, the average home has at least 3 different paint colors adorning the walls. When you add in trim and ceiling colors, and different sheens used in different rooms (like bathrooms for instance) - it can all be a challenge to keep up with. . Following are some simple tips to keep track of your paint colors, match existing paint colors, or clean scuffs off walls and trim.

Homebuyers today are facing a huge dilemma. There simply aren’t enough homes for sale. 

In Denver, high demand and low inventory continue to be the themes in the metro area residential housing market.

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,…
