What Makes a House a Home For You?

In Moving | on December, 24, 2018 | by

We frequently talk about why it makes sense to buy a home financially, but more often than not the emotional reasons are the more powerful or compelling ones.

No matter what shape or size your living space is, the concept and feeling of a home can mean different things to different people. Whether it’s a certain scent or a favorite chair, the emotional reasons why we choose to buy our own homes are typically more important to us than the financial ones.

1. Owning your home offers stability to start and raise a family

From the best neighborhoods to the best school districts, even those without children at the time of purchase may have this in the back of their minds as a major reason for choosing the location of the home that they purchase.

2. There’s no place like home

Buying or Renting – Which is Right for You?

In Denver Real Estate, Market News, Moving | on September, 05, 2014 | by

Many people make the mistake of solely focusing on the financial implications when leaving their old home and making a choice between purchasing a property or renting one. However, as we are going to discuss during the course of this article, there’s so much more to making a choice between buying Colorado real estate or renting your new home. If you want to have any chance of making the “right decision” you need to look at both options from a number of different perspectives and carefully assess the impacts that buying or renting would have on your life. Life is about more than just plain old money; you have to take your personality and preferences into account too.

Does Downsizing Make Sense for You

In Denver Real Estate, Moving | on April, 10, 2014 | by

The kids have all “flown the nest,” you’re now retired and you don’t have as much energy as you once did. Your home feels like a mansion; it takes ages for you to get around, even longer to clean and there’s numerous rooms that you barely enter any more. This is a sensation that many older citizens experience and it brings up a fairly controversial question; should I sell my home in Denver and buy something smaller? This is referred to as “downsizing” and while some people are great believers in doing this, there are others that are fiercely against it. If this is something that you’ve been thinking about a lot recently, then this article might be of interest to you since we’re going to take a look at the main pros and cons of downsizing.

The Most Important Things to Remember When Leaving Your Old Home

moving from old home checklistYou’ve received an offer for your home that you’re happy with and you’re going to accept. Once you’ve exchanged contracts and you receive the money that will be that, right? Many homeowners get so caught up in the process of actually selling their home that they forget that once they do that, there’s still a lot of work to be done as they prepare to move out. Before we discuss anything else, we must point out that it is extremely important that you hang on to all paperwork related to the sale of your home, as you will need this when it comes time to file your taxes and then again afterwards if you are audited. It’s also vitally important that you carefully review the HUD-1 Settlement Statement before you close and hand over the keys since this will display all of the fees and charges that both you and ...

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.
