While President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans celebrate their progress with the tax code overhaul, real estate agents across the country have banned together to protest tax revisions that will affect their clients and the residential real estate industry as a whole.
Though the 2018 tax plan continues to experience revisions - with more promised - as it works its way through Congress, agents’ concern over existing tax policies related to home ownership continue to grow. Bipartisan groups formed by real estate agents have assembled throughout the United States to urge more consideration for American homeowners.
Though a handful of components of the tax bill would impact homebuyers and future homeowners, two specifics have drawn the

The Real Estate Paradox: Days on Market are Up, While Inventory is Down
Metro Denver’s residential real estate data for November is a bit all over the place. Active inventory has decreased by 6% since last year, yet homes are spending 15% more time on the market (equalling an extra 5 days on average). In fact, according to real estate agent Shelley Conger, "inventory set a new record low" despite the sizable increase in days on market. These two numbers seem at odds with each other… there’s less inventory (tipping the market scales even farther in favor of sellers), yet homes for sale are spending significantly longer on the market than this time last year! And, to make things even more confusing October saw 10% more Denver homes under contract

The month of September is the ideal time to witness a gilded aspen spectacle on a scenic drive, but you have to time it right: The color lasts only about a week in most places. It's difficult to predict when exactly the leaves will turn in any given location. The best strategy is select travel dates in advance, but not destinations. Then go wherever the color is. Here are a few road-tripping routes, sorted by region, that have become fall-color pilgrimages for aspen lovers, according to Colorado Come to Life, a great resource for visitor information, things to do in Colorado, and special tourism offers:
