We see a lot of houses, and we are constantly on the lookout for new trends in architecture and design around the Denver area. We've seen a lot of them come...and go. (We're talking about you, Tuscan-style.) We think this one might be here to stay, though. The elements of Modern Farmhouse style easily integrate into almost any urban Denver neighborhood, and looks great in the suburbs, too.

Live Urban Real Estate, in conjunction with Denver-based video production company Fluxus Maximus, has announced the launch of a web-based video series, Crafting the Sale.

The Denver Area's Real Estate Market is all over the news these days.

And, it's true, both perfect and ugly houses are selling really quickly.

In fact, according to the Denver Post:

The residential listing website releases a "hotness index" each month that looks at the number of views for home listings and how quickly listings sell in hundreds of markets.

In March, Denver ranked third, up from fourth in February. Denver has long been a top market in home sales and price appreciation.
