Live Urban LOVES to feature our agents' listings on our blog...and we try to put together a post as quickly as we can once a home hits the market.   

Recently, a home listed by Live Urban Realtor Susie Best came and went before we had a chance to write a post! So we asked Susie a few questions that we thought might help folks thinking about listing their home to sell quickly and for top dollar, like 3299 Lowell Boulevard #101 did!

 

Live Urban: Wow!

That was fast....how long was this one actually on the market? 

 Susie: Two Days   Live Urban: Why do you think the property sold so quickly?   Susie: My clients worked hard to get the property cleaned and spruced up per my recommendations and they listened to us and didn't over-price it.

Top 5 Reasons We Love Living in the Highlands...

1. Food, drinks and ice cream! El Camino, Bang!, Mondo Vino, Pizza Alley, and Sweet Cow.

2. Sloan's Lake. It's that urban getaway that's walking distance from my house. I love how I experience it differently throughout the year, depending upon the season. And from the west side it's one of the coolest views of downtown.     3. The people. There's a solidarity with the people in many of Denver's neighborhoods. The Highlands is no exception. People love living here. It's like a small town in the heart of the city.   4. The architecture. I'm in love with historic homes. Victorians. Bungalows. Tudors. Even the cool 50's ranch homes. And then there's the mix of contemporary newer…

Every Saturday and the last Friday of every month through October 2014, the Big Wonderful happens in the Curtis Park/5 Points/RiNo neighborhood.  It's basically a beer garden, food truck, cocktail bar destination with beach volleyball, yard games, a massive sandbox for kids, a dj or live music and a dog park.  Exactly what every good Denverite needs!  The Big Wonderful is located next to Sustainability Park, on a 3 acre block between Arapahoe & Lawrence and 26th & 27th.  Entry is free.  It's a great concept and a good time that everyone should check out while it lasts.  For more info, click on this post and check out their website here.

What is the cost of waiting to buy a home in Denver these days? Working with buyers, I hear
a lot of the time, "I"m waiting to buy... to get a larger downpayment, for my lease to expire,
the timing to be right, the prices to come down, etc., etc., etc." Many of these are very valid
and real reasons and I certainly understand where buyers are coming from. However, after seeing this latest graph and stats, I feel it is my duty as an agent to let all buyers know how important it is to not wait to buy if you can manage it.

The great graph below was provided by Megan Aller with Land Title. Megan tracks the Denver Real Estate statistics better than anyone in Denver and the info she provides is always top notch and eye opening. The graph is pretty self

There was a touch of Fall in the air this morning, and with pre-season football well underway, we were inspired to start putting together some fun tailgating and gameday party ideas....just in time to watch our Denver Broncos kick some football a$%!

First, of course, we had to figure out the 2014 Denver Broncos Game Schedule...thanks Google!

Next...it's time to plan some epic eats and drinks to enjoy while cheering our boys on the field!

We put together a Pinterest Board with a ton of fun ideas....

Top 10 Reasons Live Urban Realtor Irene Glazer loves living in Sunnyside....

1. The PEOPLE! Great, down-to-earth, and friendly.   2. The food -- we have the best gardens in town, and people love to share their produce.   3. The sunflowers, they are everywhere.   4. The funkiness. No cookie cutter stuff here (just yet)!   5. Chaffee Park -- hosts The Sunnyside Music Festival as well as Jazz in the Park.   6. Coffee shops -- Common Grounds and Huckleberry's are both great additions to the 'hood.   7. The porchsits, and impromptu neighborly gatherings.   8. Proximity to all that's best in the city and also the accessibility to the mountains. Downtown is a 5 minute bike ride away, and I70 and I25 are in our backyard.
