  Can't find a house in the Highlands? It's becoming a very common problem unfortunately. Houses under $400,000 in the general Highlands area are swarmed upon by buyers the second they hit the market and unless you are willing to go way above asking price, typically $20,000 or more, and guarantee you will make up the difference between the appraised value and the purchase price, you really don't stand a chance. I'm not trying to scare anyone off, just telling the truth so you know what to expect. If you aren't able to compete with those factors, you have a couple options.    First, you can increase your purchase price. I wrote a blog about this a few weeks ago, click here. It is much, much less competitive above $400,000 and we are even…

With all of the rain that the Denver Metro has experienced in the last few weeks (16 out of the last 18 days to be exact) we are receiving a lot of requests for restoration contractors to remove water from flooded basements...and we've heard that local supply stores are running low on both sump pumps and wet vacs.

In the hopes that this isn't too late for you to prevent water damage to your lower level, we did a little research and came across this good tutorial from WikiHow that we hope you will find useful to prevent future flooding, and to keep your family safe in the case that your Colorado basement does flood.


1. Focus on prevention. Long before you're in a flooding situation, look around your property for ways to divert rainwater away

How can I find a foreclosure to buy in Denver?

It's a question I get a lot with new buyers starting the process and it's quite a different conversation than I had with buyers 5 years ago.

I can't remember the last time I saw a foreclosure or short sale listed on the MLS. The reason for this stark contrast from 5 years ago is that with prices going up so quickly the past few years, most homeowners in Denver now have positive equity and if they need to sell, do not need to go down the foreclosure path.
