I thought our offer was solid; full price with the typical 3% seller concession.  Inspection went without any major hitches and we asked for some cosmetic fixes.  Turns out the seller is jobless and without and extra expense to fix drywall much less buy groceries.  Seller needs to SELL! Appraisal comes in short due to two neighbors dumping their homes a month earlier.  With no wiggle room on the sellers side our deal is dead. The sellers options are to apply for the short-sale package and extend the deal for another three months, perhaps six to close.  (My buyers are capable of that time frame but would miss the credit.) I thought we were done and we needed to move on. After a long weekend and a few talks with the listing agent we negotiated a commission drop of .5% and dropped the sell...

This morn, as my alarm clock went off  at 5:45am,I realized I wasn't feeling so good . I had awakened with a bit of a stomach issue, I pushed the snooze and took another 15 minutes. I then realized I had a full day and could not waste time so I pulled myself out of bed, with the hopes I would feel better. I should re-phase the above to Soul - Body and Mind. One of the first things I do in the morn is exercise my soul, by reading God's word. So yes, this may not be political correct, as I'm sure, several would have wrote ..the universe ...etc. Be it be known... I read the bible. This morn I read from Proverbs 3. I then was uplifted by 3:5-8, which is:  5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart        and lean not on your own understanding;  6 in all your ways acknowledge him,        and he...

Trivia Question: Why is this Annual Wheat Ridge event named the Carnation Festival?As a native to Colorado you might have thought that I was an annual attendee to the 38th Annual Wheat Ridge Carnation Festival. Sad to say, this was a first for me. But, it will definitely not be the last. The food, the music and especially "A Step Above", the five women dancers from ages 70-93, helped make this event a memorable one.While Saturday evening brought some rain, the die hards stuck it out and were rewarded with one of the most vibrant rainbows I have ever seen, soon followed by an evening of fireworks. The Wheat Ridge Police Department team beat the Wheat Ridge Silver Foxes in a friendly game of softball. I understand that the Silver Foxes, with an average age of 67, usually win this game. Ma...
