First time home buyer? Moving from out-of-state? Looking for your next great investment? Our home buyer tips cover all that and more!


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. You're not alone either if you're already feeling drained by the complex logistics of trying to sell and buy a new home all at once, and we are here to guide you through the process.

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.

Coloradans spend so much time in the mountains, it comes as no surprise to learn just how many people are in the market for mountain property. Anything to keep us in the trees just a little bit more is a good idea if you ask us. But with the Denver market being so strong, is it even possible for the average family to own their own weekend getaway spot in the mountains? The truth is, if you know where to look you can actually find some pretty great deals. 

It is always best to know what features are most important to you when looking for a mountain home as well, but if you would enjoy a place away from the hustle and bustle of the most popular mountain towns such as Breckenridge, and Vail, you can find some gems. Things to consider in your list of…

Cash is King in the Denver Real Estate Market right now, with many buyers being beaten out by all-cash offers. If you need a loan in order to buy a home, how can you position yourself to compete with cash offers? If you can close your loan in two weeks or less, waive your appraisal objection, and in some cases your loan objection (and increase your offer price ever so slightly) you can absolutely compete with cash offers, and win. But what does it mean to waive your appraisal objection, often called an Appraisal Gap Waiver?

Many sellers in today’s market favor buyers who are willing to guarantee their full offer price—even if the property appraises for less (which is common when prices are accelerating as quickly as they are here in Denver). For…

July 2021 Denver Market Update: 

The June real estate market continues to be unique and is largely defined by 5 key trends across pricing, supply, and even new listings as outlined below. An interesting data point we will continue to watch is a slight decrease in showing activity (which may indicate a slowing residential market going into the second half of the year).

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…

June 2021 Denver Market Update: 

This absurdly strong seller's market continues with the average price of a single-family home in the Greater Metro Denver area up 30% year-over-year to $693,808. Buyers continue to flock to Denver and are more than willing to pay top dollar (and agree to just about anything to get their contract accepted). The Denver real estate market continues to be unlike…

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…

There are several benefits to being a homeowner, but none greater than building real wealth. The median net worth of homeowners is 80x more than home renters (according to new data from the US Census Bureau). That same report revealed that the biggest contributors to wealth are two main assets: home equity and retirement accounts - which represent nearly 64% of households' net worth.

7 Benefits of Home Ownership

  1. Tax benefits. The U.S. Tax Code lets you deduct the interest you pay on your mortgage, your property taxes, and some of the costs involved in buying a home.

  2. Appreciation. Historically, real estate has had a long-term, stable growth in value. In fact, median single-family existing-home sale prices have increased on average 5.2…
