 The Town of Larkspur is located 40 miles south of Denver and West of I-25.   The town was incorporated in 1979 and today is known for the Renaissance Festival held every year in Larkspur and the Yogi Bear's Jellystone Campground.   Most homes in Larkspur are on lots of one acre or more and surrounded by trees.   You will see lots of wildlife - deer, mountain lions, bears (brown & black), fox, coyotes and lots of birds.  Going to the grocery store will require a trip to Castle Rock, and depending on where in the town you live, it could be 15 minutes.   There isn't much in the "town", but a gas station, post office, three restaurants, and of course two golf courses with restaurants.   Bear Dance Golf Course is closer to I-25, and Perry Park Golf Course is on the West side of town. The po...

 The lenders always remind Buyers not to buy items prior to closing or change their credit situation, but the same can be said for the Seller.    Our Sellers are seeing HUGE bottom lines from the equity increases over the last few years. Even though a Seller knows they will see a giant wire transfer in 30 days, don't go on a spending spree and put everything on credit, thinking you will pay it off when the property closes.    Even if a transaction looks smooth, there can be last-minute snafus that can delay or eliminate a closing.   Some items that derail a transaction -  Big-ticket inspection items - roof, sewer, furnace that the Seller was not aware had issues.The appraisal may come in low, and the buyer is not willing to bridge the gap.Buyers may have items in their credit show up an...

  Wondering how the market is doing in The Conservatory?   Each month I do the statistics for this neighborhood to see how long homes are on the market, the number of homes sold, and how the home values are doing.  This is how you stay on top of a market shift or understand how quickly homes are going pending!  Below you will find the update for this month and what is currently available.  Homes in The Conservatory have basements, some are finished, some have mountain views, and were built from 2002 to 2016.  There are ranch models along with two-story and multi-level homes ranging in square footage from 1,387 to almost 3,000 above ground.  DR Horton/Continental was the original builder, but now Richmond, Standard Pacific, and Carpace have homes in this neighborhood also.  There are app...
