The stats are out for the month of December, and the numbers reflect the seasonal slowdown this time of year, along with interest rates bounding around.   The inventory declined 21% from last month, but increased 68% over last year.  The inventory has not moved much since the beginning of the year. This data is courtesy of Joan Cox - House to Home, Inc. I track data daily for the Denver metro area, and the amount of price reductions have dropped and homes returning to market have dropped below 200 a week.   The inventory this time of year is seasonally low, and is hovering around 4,400.  (includes land up to high-end homes) See what homes are currently available - Active Homes for sale in Denver Buyers - If you have thought about buying a home this year, rates are down a bit, but the go...

 No longer do I hear (as much), the commute time to work is in the top 7 items on the Buyer's wish list!   Companies are allowing many of their employees to continue to work from home, and some are contemplating "moving out of town".  The Reserve at Wild Pointe may be a good option!    Want to enjoy the peace and quiet of the rural lifestyle?    Do you want to hear wildlife and no traffic?    Yet, this neighborhood is within minutes of Parker and downtown Elizabeth. You will find this community off Highway 86 and Legacy Trail Street in Elizabeth CO  80107.  This location allows for country living yet close to surrounding towns, with Parker and Castle Rock within a twenty-minute drive.  Multiple builders have developed homesites in the neighborhood including WilliamMRK Homes and GJ Gardn...

Evergreen Colorado Real Estate Things are changing even though they are staying the same. There seems to be a theme in the Denver Foothills... Don't let buyers have control yet. They are fighting and scratching trying to grab any sort of footing. Unfortunately every time they make a little progress our inventory just disappears. In a real estate market like Evergreen CO you need two things to shift the market in your direction (sorry interest rates don't really affect our market. Lots of cash deals and people that aren't as financially strapped as some). If buyers would like to take control any time soon we will need to see less buyers and more sellers. Pretty much the story for the last 6 years up here. As we look at the number of active listings in Evergreen (this is the case in most ...

 If you are looking for an attached property near the Denver Tech Center (DTC), this neighborhood could fit the bill.   Those who choose not to do exterior maintenance on their property - this is it!    No lawn work, no house painting, and no snow removal is needed by the homeowner.  Stoney Brook is located south of I-225, West of Yosemite, and North of Belleview in zip code 80237.    This community has a picturesque & park-like feel with plentiful mature trees, bushes, plants, and ponds.    You will find both townhomes and condos, but all have two-car garages.   These properties were built from 1971 to 1992 and have from 1,020 to 2,872 square feet above ground, and all townhomes have basements, some are finished.    The condos have a storage unit.  The townhomes have fenced-in small ba...

I focus my practice on tax resolution, representing taxpayers in Colorado, Florida, Texas, New York, California and elsewhere. I frequently hear the question: "I need to file my taxes, but I owe the IRS and state and don't have the money to pay. What do I do?"The answer to that question is: even if you do owe, file your tax return on time! The reason is this - many people don’t realize that the IRS charges a penalty of up to 25% just for filing your tax return late. That’s right - you will get hit with an additional 25% of what you owe if you miss the deadline for filing individual tax returns. What most people don't know is that you can file ANY tax return on time and avoid the 25% penalty even if you don't send in the money that is owed on the return. Did you also know that, even if y...

  Many times homeowners want their home on the market RIGHT NOW.    Maybe they need to get to their new home quickly, or have other personal reasons to get their home sold quickly. Putting a home on the market prior to it being truly ready for show, is a huge mistake.     Those repairs or de-cluttering efforts and of course deep cleaning should be complete prior to being available for showings.  Buyers will see what still needs to be done, and make offers below list price, or worse - not make an offer if it needs work. It is good to get these items done prior to having a home active on the market -   ~ Deep clean more than you ever have before, every nook & cranny in the home, it does make a difference.   Don't forget the intake vents up high and the baseboards!  ~ De-clutter every room...
