~ Why Should You List Your Home During the Holidays? ~ If you are planning on selling your home and are thinking about waiting, you may want to think again.  I have a list of reasons why. ~ The buyers looking for homes right now are serious buyers and not just looking to see what is out there.  This is important to you because the showings you do have, you know they are in the market to BUY a home, not just look to see what is out there. ~ Many folks take their home off the market during the holidays.  That means that the serious buyers have less inventory to view and from which to choose and that is good for you. ~ Many people take time off from their jobs during the holiday season, so this means more weekday showings for you. ~ Purchasing a home is an emotional decision.  And the holi...

  I knew about the flashing red light on cars! But not the #77  According to my close lady friend, It was about 1:00 pm in the afternoon, and a gal was driving to visit a friend when an UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on. She had always been taught to never to pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather to wait until they get to a gas station, etc.   So the gal promptly called #77 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there was an  unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her..... The dispatcher checked to see if there were police cars where she was and there weren't, he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that h...

Southshore Community - Pulte Purchased Foreclosed Property   In 2007 Southshore was an upcoming luxury community on the Quincy Reservoir and offered $1 million homes with an upscaled clubhouse.    Southshore was the feature for the 2007 Denver Parade of Homes.     However, with only 14 homes complete and sold, the down housing market foreclosed on the entire property. Pulte, a prominent builder in Denver, found this property was on the market, and moved quickly, and with one transaction in November 2009, they purchased the entire property for $14.5 million. Plans for this luxury community includes 55 single-family homesites with five floor plans ranging from 2,816 square feet to 5,111 square feet.    The homes include as many as five bedrooms, finished basements, four-car garage options...

~ Southlands Mall Happenings ~ Did you miss the parade and the lighting of the tree?  Last night was the kick off for the holiday season at Southlands Mall in Aurora, Colorado.  I was in attendance with hundreds of others as we tried to stay warm in the 30 degree temperatures.  The local shops were busy selling cups and cups of coffee and hot chocolate to help us beat the cold. The event started at 6:00 pm with some local dance schools and singers.  The parade featured a drum line, local girl scout and daisy groups, jugglers, some youth soccer and football teams, Eaglecrest High School Marching Band and Santa, himself! After the parade, there was the anticipated countdown for the lighting of the tree.  It is located in the town center by the movie theaters and the outdoor ice rink at So...

Your Opinions on Leadership!   Here are few synapses /thoughts on leadership, go ahead and give it a read please. And please interject your own comments or opinions on leadership;   Leaderships are earned and privilege to selective few people, and should not be hereditary! Leadership can be learned through education!   First of all, without followers there can be no leaders!    The leadership is a sacred gift bestowed on selective few who are blessed with the confidence of others!   It's for that reason!  Sacred trust of a leader, which carries a heavy burden of performance, by that leader!   If others will have you lead, then you have to decide not whether or not you will lead but whether or not you have the heart to bear the burden of responsibility for all those who sacrifice their o...

Homowners guide to sewer lines! According to the City of Aurora water department, sewer line backups can be expensive to fix, so we all need to do our part to prevent them. Homeowners are responsible for the maintenance and repair of the service line - the portion of the pipe that extends from the home into the street, alley, easement or Right-of-way - into the city's main sewer line, as well as any street and sidewalk repairs that result. Aurora Water is responsible for maintaining and repairing the main line. If your community has a homeowners' association, the portion of the line for which you were responsible could be slightly different. Check with your HOA for more information you contact the City of Aurora water department at:  City of Aurora • Aurora Water 15151 E. Alameda Parkwa...

Homes in the U S for Under $100K! According to the Kiplinger Magazine, Homeowners know the bad news too well: residential real estate values have plummeted more than 25% nationally during the Great Recession, as much as 40-50% in some other metro areas! The good news is the depressed housing market looks more and more like a giant opportunity for young first-time buyers lucky enough to have stable jobs, investors in rental properties, even empty nesters with enough equity left in their existing homes to downsize. Here are the following lists; Cleveland, Ohio. Asking Price: $89,900 Square Footage: 1,170 Bedrooms: 3 Bathrooms: 2 Dallas, Tex.
