West + Main Homes' Founder + Owner, Stacie Staub, was quoted this week in the New York Times, who asked for her thoughts on Denver's ongoing Seller's Market and current housing market conditions.

In Denver, where the inventory of homes has been low for the past couple of years, there is no such thing as lowballing, said Stacie Staub, founder of West and Main Homes in Lakewood, Colo., near Denver. Often, she said, homes go on the market on a Friday and are under contract by Sunday.

The market is so tight that Ms. Staub often recommends that people looking to trade up to a new home should first sell their own house, and then go shopping with cash. Sellers generally frown on contingency offers, which are subject to the sale of an existing home.…

Should You Buy a Home With Cash?

If you have the ability to purchase a home with cash only, then you’re part of a slim percent of the American population - congrats! Before you head to the bank to withdraw those fat stacks of greenbacks, make sure you consider both the pros and the cons (yes, there are some cons) of skipping the mortgage. 

Pros

Skipping the interest. Buying a home is often a good investment, but buying one flat out may be an even better one. This is because you save on mortgage interest that is usually paid over the life of the home loan – interest that could amount to anywhere between several thousand dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Avoiding the fees. With an all-cash deal, you skip those loan origination fees, an…

There are so many people moving to Denver nowadays, that it can be difficult to determine how long they have actually been in our great state of Colorado. One of the sure fire ways to determine if they are "homegrown" is to ask them to name the official city neighborhoods.

A newbie might name some such as RiNo, LoDo, or Ballpark -- this means they are wrong and haven't been here long. These are all fabulous, popular, and fast-growing areas, but are relatively new to Denver, and most importantly, NOT official neighborhoods. 

As the city grows and old city borders obscure and morph into new in borders, one man has attempted to preserve the local history; Steven Chester is creating flags for each of the official Denver neighborhoods.

We hear it all the time - homeowners and renters who are "waiting for the Colorado market to cool down because prices are too crazy right now."

Makes sense, except we have been hearing folks say this for about five years now, and prices have continued to go nowhere but up. This is a quick analysis of what could happen if current sales trends continue in the Denver Metro area, with both average prices and interest rates on the rise. (Calculations include principal and interest only.)

As you can see, prices ARE rising at a fast pace...jumping almost $200,000 in just two years. So, does it make sense to wait? It depends on your situation and your financial and Real Estate goals.

If you thinking about Selling a Colorado property, it might seem…
