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:

What Do HOA Fees Pay For?

No one likes paying their HOA fees, but that pesky bill comes every month! I despise paying my gigantic HOA fee as much as any other condo-dweller, but it has come to my rescue on more than one occasion. Next time you have to fork up several hundred to your Homeowners’ Association, try to remember everything it’s doing for you…

 HOA trash fee

HOA fees often cover some basic expenses, such as trash removal, water, and sewage upkeep. I don’t know about you, but I’m more than happy to pass any sewage-related hiring along to my Homeowners’ Association. Not sure what your fee covers? Simply ask!

Yesterday while driving in Denver I looked at my car thermometer and it read 100 degrees! This got me thinking about our furry friends and how we can help them beat the heat during these dog days of summer. Plus, in Colorado we love being outside with our dogs, so here are some  to help you and your dog get through this heat!

WATER! WATER! WATER!
It’s important we make sure our friends stay hydrated and have access to fresh, cool water during these hot summer days. Lack of water can lead to dehydration and heat stroke. If you are planning adventure out with your pup bring him his own water, so you both stay hydrated and cool.

WATCH THE THERMOMETER!
Keeping an eye on the heat is very important, especially if you are planning an outing or taking

Your Guide To Sending Your Kid to a Great School No Matter Where You Live!

The Best Denver Schools

Live Urban Real Estate believes that all children deserve a high-quality education. With Denver’s unprecedented residential listing shortage and continually booming popularity, some families are having difficulty finding a home within their preferred school zone. Often, buyers find themselves focusing more on finding a home they love while remaining in their budget and are unable to even consider what school zone the property is in. This can lead to disappointment and frustration, when future educational plans seem all but dashed.

But, we see a real opportunity for educational improvement amidst this low-inventory housing market. With all types of families moving into

Do Millennials Hold the Keys to the Future of Homes?

Millennials Buying Homes in Denver

By Derek Schimmel

Do Millennials hold the keys to the future of homes? Mind the pun, but the fact remains: 18 to 34 year-olds make up the largest age demographic in the United States, and their innovations and ever-changing habits are altering the way we look at real estate each and every day. This is most notably seen in delaying what are widely regarding as some of life’s biggest choices — when to marry, have children, and buy a home. The latter on this short list seems to be taking a turn, as baby boomers’ babies are beginning to join the masses in the transition from renting to owning. And now that they’ve started, there is no end in sight.

Giving back to the community is an essential part of how Live Urban does business. We believe that each and every person deserves care, dignity, and support.
