 We all know you should keep in touch with your sphere, and the 4 items we should talk about.   F  amily          O  ccupation          R   ecreation      D   reams I was talking with a fellow REALTOR a couple of months ago and he said he has a hard time calling and talking anything social.    I recommended that he call all his past FHA buyers and tell them they have enough equity in their home, they can approach their mortgage company to remove the PMI.   If he cannot talk social, this part is business, and those Sellers will be thrilled to hear this good news!   I like to call clients when I am in their neighborhood just to tell them I am thinking about them, or better yet stop by (with a bit of notice).   I have been delivering baby gifts to my families with new babies, and love that...

Greenfield is located in Centennial, with some of this neighborhood in the City of Aurora.    It is located off Arapahoe Road & Picadilly in the South part of the Metro Denver area.   It is located in Cherry Creek School District, which is just one reason this neighborhood is popular! I like to stay on top of the statistics for the community, and nice to review the numbers every quarter.   Most months there are just one or two sales.  For the month of July, there were six sales.     For this size of the neighborhood, we don't usually see many homes go up for sale in Greenfield or Greenfield Estates.    Here is how August 2021 fared: 2 properties sold priced at $655,000 and $755,000 (last mo there were 6 sales) Average Days in MLS were 5 days  (last mo was 6)Sellers saw 101.91% to list p...

August was a busy month and was able to work with several very enjoyable clients.   After they got settled, this Seller sent me this review, which made my day!   I was driving on vacation, so it was extra special!  I met Diana through another friend and was referred, then she wanted to start buying investment properties.   She still has a few.  This was the primary home she lived in for over 30 years.   It was extra special, as she has 2 close friends that do real estate, but part-time.      Thank you Diana, it was simply a joy working with you!

Fall is on the calendar for later this week, which means the flakes could any day now, and time for some home fall maintenance items. Here are a few items you should winterize before winter has set in --  Fertilize lawn for its last feeding Check for drafts - use a candle around doors and windows Blow out sprinklers Check fire extinguisher Check all windows for broken seals and be sure they shut & lock Give the deck one last coat of sealer Inspect your roof for shingle damage, or call a roofer Clean rain gutters and downspouts Check around the foundation for any pipes/ducts coming from the house to see if there is additional caulking needed and/or weatherstripping Replace your furnace's air filter and have it serviced Reverse the direction of ceiling fans Service and tune-up snowblower ...

Laura Erwin's Buyer got this remodeled townhome and is SO excited.   She wrote almost a dozen offers earlier this year, but the market was too crazy and was unsuccessful.    Now that the market has cooled a bit, she was able to secure her home.    There still were multiple offers, but not $50k over list price!She will do her inspection tomorrow, but Laura and the buyer feel very confident the home is in good condition.    This property is so close to shopping coffee shops and to E-470.    With being in Littleton, it is close to the mountains also, so easy access to go hiking, camping, biking or skiing in the winter! Laura and her buyer are looking forward to a smooth transaction!
