But with as crazy as the market has been the past three months, it is hard to say with any certainty that it can get any hotter than it is right now, but my gut says it will.

According to the S&P/Case Shiller home prices index that was released yesterday, the Denver metro area saw a 9.2% rise in home prices in January compared to last January at the same time.

Buoyed by successes from past homeowner programs and with an eye on the future, the City and County of Denver and the Metro Mayors Caucus today launched the Metro Mortgage Assistance Plus Program, a new funding initiative to encourage home ownership.“There is no better way to help rebuild our local economy and expand the strength and vitality of our neighborhoods than to open the doors of home ownership to moderate and low-income buyers,” said Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock.

The program reduces the usual barriers to home ownership by providing a 4% grant for down payment and closing cost assistance—money the borrower does not repay—and can offer a competitive interest rate on 30-year mortgages. The program can currently be used to purchase any property

  Most people I know would love to add solar to their home, it is just a matter of how expensive it is and if it's really worth it. I wondered the same thing so I started asking around. What I found was pretty shocking. Did you know you can actually add solar to your home for absolutely free?      Last week, I met with Jeff Munn with Syndicated Solar and was amazed by what he had to show me. After about 30 minutes meeting with him, I felt like an expert on solar and was excited about my options. Syndicated Solar offered me three different options.    1) The first is a zero down program. With no money out of pocket, I could add solar to my house and over the next 20 years potentially save $6,498 in electric bills. The way this program works…

Has anyone every begged you to sell your home? A couple years ago, you probably would have laughed in their face. But now you will find almost every single Realtor and home-buyer begging you to sell your home. As the inventory in Denver keeps falling and more and more buyers are out and about with the nice weather looking for a house, homes for sale are literally flying off the shelf.

Don't believe me? I sent a home buyer 5 homes last night that had come on the market yesterday. By the time we went to look at 2 pm today, 4 were under contract. In some neighborhoods we aren't talking days on market, we are talking HOURS on market and I'm not exagerating.

If we take a look at some of the more popular neighborhoods you can see why we need new
