 When a new community is nearing close-out, the model home is put on the market.    Meritage accepted her offer and accepted her contingency to sell her home.  These are paired townhomes with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and a 2-car attached garage.   Meritage Homes is known for building very energy-efficient green homes. The builder offered all the furniture, decor and even the towels in the bathroom for a great price, which my Buyer agreed to. Today she closed on her beautiful new property, and looking forward to moving into her new home!

The Buyers closed in June, took possession in July, and two days after they moved in, I got a call.     How do you deal with neighbors that run their music at 2 am and won't turn it down?     These Buyers went over the first time very nice and asked if they could tone it down after 9 pm.   He said yes.   Two days later, it was loud once again.    They went over and asked again, and the neighbor said he has lived there 20 years and that is how he lives - get over it!    The next day I called our State Legal hotline, and the Seller did NOT need to disclose this information.    He also suggested making an appointment with a real estate attorney and sending a letter to this neighbor. They are now calling the Police, but miraculously, the neighbor knows when to turn it down, and is off by th...

 You always hope at the end of a transaction, the client is happy with all you have done to achieve their goals for them.     I like to send a request through Rate my Agent, and most often I get reviews back quickly.   Some take a while, but all worth the wait in most cases! This was the case when I got this review - as it was an ActiveRain's sister that was moving from Aurora to Oklahoma, and needed to sell her townhome.    She was a joy to work with!  THANKS Paula, and hope you make some wonderful new memories in your new home in Oklahoma!

As expected, this home had immediate showings, and was seeing 30% of the buyers writing offers, but many were investors, and they were still looking for a deal, even though it was priced as a fixer.    The winning bid was a REALTOR that will buy and rent.    We do have two back-up offers. This ranch home has great bones, good layout, but needs some love.    This home is located in highly acclaimed Cherry Creek Schools, has 3 beds, 2 full bathrooms, and an attached 2-car garage.   There are 1,190 square feet on the main floor and 1,156 square feet in the basement, fully finished.   Priced at $385,000.    3537 S. Richfield St., Aurora, CO  80013 The carpet has been removed in the home, there are a couple of windows broken or cracked, needs interior and exterior paint, the kitchen needs re...

 When a new community is close to close-out, the model home is put on the market.   This model home never went on MLS, but my buyer fell in love with it.    They accepted her offer, and will work with selling her home.  These are paired townhomes with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and a 2-car attached garage.   Meritage Homes is known for building very energy-efficient green homes. The builder offered all the furniture, decor and even the towels in the bathroom for a great price, which my Buyer agreed to. Depending on how her sale goes, and if we have to sell her home more than once, she should close end of August.
