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.

In today’s real estate market, sellers need additional advice on how to cost-effectively prepare their homes in order to sell quickly. With an abundance of homes on the market, waiting several months to sell a home could leave many recession-plagued sellers in financial distress. For example, in October 2008 the median existing home price was the lowest since March 2004 at $183,200. This means that a home owner who lived in his home for 4-1/2 years is seeing the value of the home as the same or less as when the home was bought (CNNMoney.com, November 2008). The good news is that although some homes may need extensive upgrades or renovations, many may only require simple changes. For a limited cost, or no cost at all, home sellers can fix their homes to appear more appealing to prospecti...

How the Economic Stimulus Package might influence your buyer's Real Estate decisions.

I often reflect on my reasons for making money as a Real Estate Agent. I can tell you that my main reason for making money is not to get rich, although if it happens I will not turn it away. My main reason for making money is to do good. Good like supporting my wife and children and giving to those that are in need and most of all giving a share back to my God and Savior. I sometimes wonder what would happen if we as a people gave more, especially us Realtors who sometimes do really well from a financial stand point. I wonder if we gave more to those in need around us, would that lessen the dependence people have on the government? This is definitely a time of great confusion for many people. For so long we have been a wants based society that now we view things like a plasma TV, cable ...

Some areas did better than others. The attached chart shows different neighborhoods in our region. Each region has the neighborhood’s name and price change in the last twelve months. We are comparing the twelve months of March 2008 through February 2009 to the twelve months right before that. There had to be at least ten sales in the last year for an area to be included. The numbers are more reliable in areas where there were more sales.   Source: Your Castle Real Estate analysis, MLS data

Recap of Condo Price Performance By Terry Wenze and Lon Welsh, Your Castle Real Estate.   It’s still a great time to be a buyer in the condo market. Prices are at a three or four year lows in many areas. Interest rates on mortgages are still historically low. Combined with the first time buyer tax credit, this should be a perfect storm for first time buyers to get the deal of a lifetime.   The average condo price in Metro Denver declined 4% between 2006 and 2007: from $187K to $180K. Homes dropped 3% in that time period. Looking just at the first two months of 2009 vs. the same time period in 2008, the price dropped 17%: from $170K to $141K.   Homes dropped a similar amount in that time period. These numbers will be slightly different than Metrolist, as they are just Denver Metro and do...

Aurora still remains one of the hottest places in the country to buy real estate.  Aurora has a huge inventory of HUD homes, lender owned properties and foreclosures.  We are one of the few cities that have actually seen some appreciation in the "normal market" with the good buys having multiple offers.  With interest rates hovering around 5% you simply should not wait to buy.  This past week-end I helped 3 different buyers get super buys.  One picked up a 1500 plus square foot ranch with a 1500 plus square foot basement for $180,000.00 AND the seller agreed to pay my buyers' closing costs.  Next year everyone will say "I wish I had bought in 2009".
