If you have been wanting to learn more about credit, then this is the day. It is annual Get Smart About Credit Day. Originally put together to teach young adults and teenagers about getting credit and being responsible with it. This day has turned into a day that is used by banks and employers along with schools. It is a fact that most Americans can't go through life without some type of credit. We need it for a place to live; a car to drive; to pay for airline tickets and in some cases even to pay for food. So, it is important that we use our credit wisely. The banks and lenders are all tightening up the restrictions on obtaining new credit. So, it is now more important than ever to know where you stand. If you need to know what your current credit scores look like, you can check with ...

National Bring Your Teddy Bear To Work and School Day Remember when you had a bad day and the only thing that would make you happy was your teddy bear? Well, now Teddy has his own appreciation day. Today is National Bring Your Teddy Bear To Work Day. On a day like today (foggy and gloomy in Denver), a little comfort can go a long way. Your bear is your companion that you can talk to. They will never judge you and your day will feel a bit more secure. It's been years since I had a teddy bear, but looking at my daughter and her "Beary" - it makes me feel better already. So, here's to teddy bears and all of the smiles and happiness that they bring! Cheers!

(Thanks to Callie Hamblin of Aurora for submitting this blog idea) Aurora, CO recently washed out the competition to win the award for best tasting water in the Rocky Mountain Section of the American Water Works Association's taste test.  The competition was open to AWA members in Colorado, New Mexico, and Wyoming.  A five judge panel composed of news media representatives and water taste test professionals chose Aurora water over that of Denver, Centennial, and out of state competitors and concluded that it had the best appearance, smell, taste and overall impression.  In June, 2010, Aurora will represent the Rocky Mountain Section of the AWA in Chicago at the Association's AWWA Annual Conference and Exposition (ACE) "Best of the Best" Taste Test.

Whatever you do, don't look at this link. It has a list of banned books! Welcome to banned books week. This week was established in 1982 to show support for our First Amendment and the freedom to read. Banned Books Week shows the benefits of open access to information while at the same time, it draws attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States. Many books have been targets to get banned, but the hard work of our teachers, booksellers and librarians have kept the information available. Banned Book week is a great opportunity to show one of the great freedoms that we have in this country. So, pick up a good book and celebrate. Be thankful for those that put up the quiet fight for your First Amendment.

Welcome to the closing process. In this part of our series we will go over what is involved in the closing process. You have already found the home; have the contract approved and your loan is approved. The next step is to schedule the closing date. Usually this date was on the original contract, but it's best to confirm the date with everyone. The mortgage lender will send the final closing documents to the title company a few days before the closing. This will allow the title company to get everything in order. They will type up the final HUD 1 Settlement Statement. This form breaks down the money for your purchase. It will show a line by line itemized beak down of the costs involved. It will show the purchase price and finally, it will show the money that you will need to bring to th...

Close to 90% of home shoppers use the internet in the home-buying process, according to a recent National Association of Realtors survey.  At Bandy Homes, we have taken note of this and upgraded our websites to be very user friendly and full of information.  Seeing area homes on line familiarizes potential buyers with what is available in the area.  It gives you an idea of how much you will get for your money and saves a lot of legwork. Using the internet when looking for your Denver area home does not mean that you should put off finding a good local agent. Though the internet has revolutionized real estate, few internet shoppers actually make a real estate purchase on line.  It's one thing to take a leap of faith and buy a pair of shoes on eBay, but there's a lot more money involved a...

This is a really cool photo taken yesterday June 7th, 2009 in the Saddle Rock neighborhood in Aurora, Colorado. Pretty sc ary huh? The news reported several tornadoes in the area and I did get a decent photo of one myself out on the plains east of town but my shot wasn't nearly as good as this one. This is REAL and I love the photo. Steven Beam EMAIL or Call 303-941-4663. Search for All homes for sale.
