Live Urban Real Estate’s community commitment shines most through our 2018 Live & Give program!

Live and Give in Denver

Each year, in January, Live Urban agents nominate their favorite local charities and passionately plead their cases to the rest of the brokerage. In the end, Live Urban Real Estate elects 3 beneficiaries for the coming year’s Live & Give program.

Every Live Urban Real Estate closing signifies a collaboration between Live Urban, the agent, and the homebuyer or seller to provide valuable funds to the selected Live & Give partners. A portion of every commission is donated to the Live & Give recipient of the client’s choice, allowing the community to benefit from Live Urban, just as Live Urban is continuously benefitting from the community!

Live Urban Real Estate Denver

Live Urban Real Estate established itself as the Urban Living Denver Real Estate Brokerage 12 years ago. Drawn to the vibrant aspects of urban life, founder John Skrabec saw an unfilled niche in the Denver real estate market. Since then, Live Urban agents have served as Denver’s urban living experts through their boutique real estate services and neighborhood keenness.

Featured in an article entitled Boutique Denver Brokerage Doubles Down on Urban Neighborhoods by Beta Brokers this month, Live Urban was described as a focused brokerage with a clear-eyed vision of its clientele, “Live Urban Real Estate is clear in its target demographic: active residents who love city life and know Denver’s urban neighborhoods.”

And this has never been more

 Benefits of Selling Your Home in the Winter 

Denver’s listing shortage continues to drive home prices higher and higher. If you’re a homebuyer, this is likely the news that has you losing sleep at night. But, if you’re a seller, this is the ace in your back pocket!

Listings decrease during the fall, then make a slow climb throughout the winter and into the spring and summer. Though autumn and early winter are seen as Denver's "slow season", buyers are always searching for a good home in Denver and winter marks the start of new buyers joining the real estate market. The thing is, with inventory so low this time of year, homes on the market are at a premium. The benefits of selling your home in the winter are substantial.
