Happy Friday! Spent my day looking at homes in the Denver Southwest area today. My usual tour of homes. A few favorites:
675 S Eliot Street in Athmar Park. Forgive me for favortism, but I am an Athmarian, so always love the homes in this area. Great curb appeal, and lovely homes surrounding. Have to be honest though. Based on the price, I thought I would walk in and see it completely remodeled and amazing throughout...but...I was truly disappointed the moment I stepped inside. Home needs a complete remodel. It's always disappointing when homes are listed too high. Brings a stigma to the property and is a detriment to the neighbors wanting to list. Unfortunately, this seems to be the norm in the surrounding area I work in. Tip to all future Seller's who plan on hiring someone other than muah, if you price too high, you will end up getting less in the end then if you price correctly. I won't elaborate more than that because I don't want to give my secrets away to the competition.
1725 S Wyandot in Ruby Hill. What a gem on the inside..and they have a shower that made me deeply envious. I wish my upstairs bathroom was big enough to install that baby. I wanted to sit in it. Beautiful upgrades throughout. Loved the office space. Friendly neighbors and close to schools. Perfect for the right person.
Lastly, 3545 W Harvard Avenue in Harvey Park. Amazing!!! What a beautiful home with touches that give the feeling of warmth and class. I actually couldn't even understand why someone would want to move out. I walked in wanting to know the owners and get an opportunity to meet their new addition cause I'm a baby lover :). Warm, inviting and beautifully maintained.
After getting back to the office and getting all my data put into my speadsheet, one of the Listing agents gave me a call for a property (which I won't name who or what area because he was a swell guy to talk to and we chatted for a good 20 minutes). Once again, an agent not familiar with the area ended up asking me my thoughts about the price and such. I'm curious, how many of the members of our communities are hiring agents that aren't familiar with the area? And why? Agents shouldn't need to call the "Neighborhood Expert" for information. They should know. If they don't, then what is it that encourages one to hire someone who doesn't?
Jumping off the soapbox now...
It was a wonderful fall day today looking at your beautiful homes and the character that lies within in. Keep up those Halloween decorations...I loved it! I saw a few of you out, but for the Mom's and Dad's that weren't, don't forget about the upcoming HalloweenFest. It's going to be a 'hoot' hehe.
Remember...keep me in mind if you are looking to buy/sell or if you're neighbor is looking to. I take pride in my neighborhood and love having all of your backs. Thanks to all of you for the referrals. Have a wonderful weekend and I'll touch base again soon :)
