This desirable brick ranch has been well cared for and is ready for you to call it home!

It sits on a large corner lot in a quiet neighborhood, an easy walking distance to multiple local schools and a community park, a short drive to I-25, and just minutes from the North Metro Rail Line, scheduled to be completed in 2020. The property offers 2 beds and 2 baths, a spacious and fully fenced backyard, and a third, non-conforming bedroom in the basement. You’ll find ample storage space inside and out, both on the lower level and in the backyard storage shed, which is included in the sale. The driveway cement and exterior fencing have been replaced fairly recently, and a new roof was installed in 2011.

Kick Out Clause, has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

Not really, although while its general verbiage seems threatening, this particular real estate clause can allow a seller a bit of flexibility when accepting a contingent offer.  What about the buyer? Is it good for them?   That all depends on the terms, current market, home demand, pricing and overall timing and good luck.

As we have discussed in previous topics most people need to sell their current residence in order to qualify to purchase a new home.  If a buyer puts an offer in on a home they wish to purchase but their home is not yet sold, this is called a contingent offer.  When the box is checked indicating a contingent offer it lets the seller know that there is additional risk and time

While opponents of homeownership claim it's "the American nightmare," self-made millionaire David Bach is doubling down on his faith in real estate.

He thinks that not prioritizing homeownership is "the single biggest mistake millennials are making."

Buying a home is "an escalator to wealth," he tells CNBC.

Young adults in particular aren't hopping on this escalator, and it's a costly mistake, Bach warns: "If millennials don't buy a home, their chances of actually having any wealth in this country are little to none. The average homeowner to this day is 38 times wealthier than a renter."

The self-made millionaire is quick to say that the smartest investments he's ever made have been the three homes he's purchased. He tells CNBC: "I

Most of the features that new homeowners or aspiring buyers ranked highest related to helping them save in utility costs, add extra storage, and spruce up the outside, said Rose Quint, the NAHB’s assistant vice president of survey research.

Staying Snuggly Warm at Home - Without Touching the Thermostat!

Like many of us, you may be counting down the days until spring. With winter weather comes increased heating bills and depleted bank accounts. Read on for the scoop on keeping your home warm, without touching your thermostat.

Check seals. If your home feels drafty, one of the first things you should do is check the seals around your windows and doors and reseal if needed. If everything is sealed properly and you still feel like you're getting a draft, cover windows with plastic, and even doors you don't use often, like a patio or side door.
