Living Urban in Denver: Real Estate Blog

How important is pricing in the current Denver Real Estate Market? The simple answer, extremely important. I speak with lots of sellers, and even lots of agents who think pricing isn't that important because the market is so hot right now. I hear all the time, we are going to push the price and see what we get. And while I understand why that is tempting after hearing all the time about the sales records Denver Real Estate keeps breaking, it could possibly be the worst strategy you could take for selling your Denver home. To back up my argument, I will turn once again to some incredible statistics provided by Megan Aller with Land Title. She put this graph together and it shows just how important price is to getting top dollar for your Denver home.

Our Berkeley addition is moving so fast I'm having a hard time keeping up with a real time blog of the construction. As I mentioned in the last blog, doing an addition takes up a lot of time with meeting with the contractor and picking out finishes. But luckily it has been a lot of fun and most importantly, moving along quickly. 

After the framing was complete, then the plumbers came in and ran plumbing for the bathroom and all the exhausts for the house. They connected water lines to the hot water heater and then duct work for the swamp cooler and furnace. Then the electricians came in and replaced our panel and ran new electric. I was amazed they could keep track of all the wires dangling from the ceiling but seems to be in order now.
