Life is the art of drawing without an eraser… John W. Gardner
Can you imagine anything more revealing. Life doesn’t come with an eraser. Appologies, explainations and “do overs” often try to cover for the eraser, but once “Life’s Art” is out there, it’s very tough to put it “back in the bottle”. As you can imagine, this is a segway to homeownership. Dee and I often have the opportunity to sit down with a seller and discuss their original purchase conditions. The “eraser” would have come in handy. There is no such thing as a perfect house. There, I’ve said it! With this being said, there are homes more perfect than others.

I would harken back to the three first words I learned in my first real estate class; “Location, location, location”. With that being said, the concept of a good location in Denver has been amended many times now. A 5 minute walk to work takes an eraser to a noisy street or rail station nearby. A walkable neighborhood with no parking is forgiven these days. What will the future of a good location look like? Will families trade 2,500 SF in the suburbs for a 10 minute commute and 1,250 SF in a close in neighborhood? Many say yes.

With Denver’s Employment Centers stretched up and down the I-25 corridor, Denver’s face will continue to change. A crystal ball can’t help us. Too many variables are in harmony and out of tune to make an accurate guess all but impossible. The Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) has put together a plan called Metro Vision. If you’re interested in predicting what will be a “good location” in the near and distant future, take a look.

What buyers wouldn’t have considered 20 years ago in Denver is the new, hip, exciting and trendy place to live today. What was the main artery of Denver 100 years ago has returned to one of those trendy neighborhoods. It’s tough to image Denver with Trolly Cars. It was a tough change for Stapleton to close and DIA to open. Just as it will be tough for some to jump on board with a NW Parkway through Rocky Flats. How about Rocky Mountain Arsenal becoming a protected wildlife preserve? Change is inevitable.

Since we can’t take an eraser to Location, Location, Location, it might be a good idea to come in and discuss your plans with us. When you’re finished, you might not need an eraser. Let’s make 2019 the best year ever!

Market Snapshot
Market Movers
A $27 million affordable housing development will soon break ground in Globeville. It will provide 91 units and 12,500 square feet of commercial space for Laradon to provide services to people with disabilities.

In the next year, a handful of metro areas that competed for Amazon’s second headquarters, Denver included, are expected to outperform the national rate of home value appreciation.

A 103-acre parcel of land in Arapahoe County just outside the city limits of Littleton, has been sold and will be developed into single-family homes. Wild Plum Farm is located along the South Platte River in the town of Columbine Valley.

Dee and Tom are a strong team. We were selling our fixer upper just as we hit a slow patch in the market. A buyer emerged but had multiple fix-up requests. Dee and Tom could not have been more helpful in negotiations with the buyer but also with fix-up sub-contractors. Consummate professionals. Follow Up Remarks: Barely a day goes by that I don’t feel relief that we were able to sell our GV house in such a challenging market. It would not have happened, especially all the final fix-ups, without your professional assistance. Your optimism and can-do attitude were also greatly appreciated. You’re the best!!
