How is the Denver real estate market?

Most real estate agents try to answer this with “average sale price” is up and then they will say the market is good. 2006 & 2007 were our best years in terms of value in Denver real estate, until last year, 2013. In terms of VOLUME and average price 2013 is unmatched…see below

When is the best time to list my house?

Chart 1 demonstrates the number of closed sales each month of each year since 2008 (2013 is the top line). The real estate contract for sale in Denver typically occurs a month before closing, so seeing a spike in closings in June or July means the contract was received in May and that house would have to go on the market starting in March or April at the latest. It seems the homes that get the highest price every year are on the market in March and close 30 to 45 days later in May or June.

What is my house worth?

It depends on your neighborhood; the sales and the level of competition. Do you have plans for this year? May we talk? You can also plug in your pertinents here to get a rough idea of its value. & Solds

When to Sell My House? Lots of folks ask that…most Realtors say “now!” This chart may tell you “why”? Simply, inventory is still low and per last year’s sales figures, demand is still high.

ChartImgGetting ready to sell can take some time and a plan is helpful. What do I “need to do?” versus “what should I do to get ready?” If I were thinking of making “that” move, I would be planning to list the house between now and April 1st. If you would like to create an action plan together drop me a note, or call.

You see, a Realtor’s job is to market your home; to get enough people through the door that at least one will decide to make you an offer.  Your job is to make the decisions about price, condition and availability. Together, the objective is to get the house sold. A Realtor should also assist in the negotiations. You just don’t take a knife to a gun fight.

Hey, I know I am not the softest, fluffiest guy, but I do know how to market your home, to get the most buyers through to get you an offer. And I am a certified negotiation expert. That is what you want, correct?

PLEASE: Your introductions are critical to my continued success!

I look forward to meeting your friends , family or co-workers. Thanks!
