Compare Denver Neighborhoods – or – Location Location Location

LOCATION MATTERS – Real Estate is LocalHow “Denver” is doing may not mean as much to you as how your house compares to the one down the street! Sometimes we can get caught up in the hype of how well our local real estate market might be doing.  Sometimes a little analysis might explain why it is important for you to have experience on your side.Your market and your home need more of a laser beam approach to determining its value than a broad brush like the above. A professional, full time real estate broker (that’s me!) can help you determine what your home is “worth” compared to what else has sold in your neighborhood. Yet I have a different job than an appraiser. Appraisers report “history”. Realtors take that same history of home sales,  interpret that data and add what we know of the market trends in that neighborhood.  And just as the above indicators are different for each MLS area, they are also different in The Enclave versus Glen Eagles or the Retreat, The Hearth or Northridge, Founders Village or Castle Pines Village,  The Hills or Palos Verde. In short, your home and neighborhood are unique. You need someone who can discern the top price you can expect. Real Estate Values are local.

Your Realtor also has to be a detective, be able to “read” people, understand & explain motivations, love the art of marketing, know how to negotiate, & then be able to explain contracts and the entire process. And he has to earn your trust.
