Boost Your Chances of a Successful Sale By Avoiding these Real Estate Blunders

In Denver Real Estate, Listing | on March, 13, 2014 | by

Sell your home in DenverBuyers, sellers and every real estate agent in Colorado (and the rest of the country!) know that it’s a buyer’s market. The market is still recovering and buyers have the power and many more options available to them than they would have had in years gone by. This means that they don’t have to buy your home, because there’s probably dozens of other properties located close by that meet their requirements and fall within their budget. If you’re a seller, this means you have to “step your game up” if you are to have any chance of selling your property and it’s absolutely essential that you avoid doing anything that could make your property a less attractive buying proposition. If you’re not sure exactly what could put prospective buyers off, keep reading as we’re going to point out some of the fundamental errors that sellers make on a regular basis.... Read More

How to Get the Best Mortgage Rates Around

In Denver Real Estate, Mortgage Rates | on February, 28, 2014 | by

denver mortgage ratesAre you in the process of looking at the current homes for sale in Denver? If that’s the case, you will most likely need to apply for a mortgage loan if you do find a property that you fall in love with. At this point you’ll probably get told to “shop around” and “explore your options” and while it’s definitely a good thing that there are so many different mortgage loans available, a fact which keeps rates as competitive as possible, it can be difficult to know where to start if you’ve never been through the process before. If you talk to a real estate agent in Denver, they will tell you that the first step is to obtain information about your credit score (most people don’t know what their credit score is before applying for a mortgage), which can be obtained from most financial institutions.

What to Look Out for When House Hunting

In Denver Real Estate, Moving | on February, 21, 2014 | by

If you’re in the market for a new home, don’t let a Real Estate Agent talk you into making an offer for a property. Buying property has to be done based on facts, not on a carefully crafted sales pitch that really connects with you (many realtors possess this gift); otherwise there can be devastating financial consequences a few months down the line. However, if you’re going to call the vendors bluff (that’s assuming someone does try to “fool” you, of course), you first need to know what you should be looking for each time you go to view a property, which is what we are going to “teach” you during the course of this article.

Home Improvements for 2014 that Retain their Value

In Denver Real Estate, Home Improvement | on February, 17, 2014 | by

Whether you are thinking of moving in the near future or you simply want to improve your home, a Real Estate Agent in Denver will always tell you to invest in home improvements that retain a large proportion of their value. Some homeowners fall into the mistake of thinking that every home improvement retains all of its value, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. Many improvements lose as much as 50 percent of their value as soon as they are installed, which then further decreases over time. Knowing which home improvements give you “the most bang for your buck” is an art, and something that any reputable Denver realtor will be able to advise you on when preparing to put your home up for sale. Keep reading to find out which projects you should seriously consider investing in this year.
