homes for sale

This guest blog was written by the Mortgage Maestro Group.

Or maybe we even search for the dream home in a different city or state. Harmless, right? Maybe. I mean we’re just looking. “Window shopping” you might say.

Colorado Bucket List: Cut down your own holiday tree.

It's a wholesome, very Colorado activity worth making a family tradition: throwing the kids, the dog and a handsaw into the back of the ol' Subaru and cutting your own Christmas tree.

Is this good for the forest?

Yes, as a matter of fact, it is. Unless forests

This weeks topic may not apply to everyone, however, unless you have taken a good hard look at the title work associated with your property you may not be aware if it applies to you or not.  Most of the time when people think of and easement (I mean, I don’t know about you but I stay up at night thinking about mine) they think “I don’t own land in a rural area so I’m not concerned with easements.”  Newsflash:  An easement can be in rural, or urban areas.  I live in Denver, Colorado and my two neighbors and I share an easement.  Before I get ahead of myself lets get the legal definition of an easement and then I will shed some more light on the topic.

This definition comes to you from the FindLaw website: An easement is a property right that gives
