Ready to move to Denver? We compiled our best tips for when you get here!

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.

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,…

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.

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.
