What we do as your Boulder Real Estate company:
Wonder what your property is worth? +
Give us a call to provide you with a Comparative Market Analyses (CMA) report that provides up to date market valuations of your property in comparison to what's occurring now in the market and most importantly, in your neighborhood. A CMA will review your properties historical valuation against homes in your zip code, providing years of graphical representation of real estate market trends showing when appreciation and depreciation have occurred and at what level for your property and your town. It will also note side by side recent competitive analysis of recently sold property and current property that is on the market, providing a strong valuation perspective in real time with up to date and local market data.
What can you expect to receive at the end of the transaction? +
We'll provide you an Estimated Seller's Net Sheet that details where your costs are regarding selling, and what your potential return on the transaction will be at the closing table based upon several proposed sales figures. This is a powerful document that assists in detailing the financial perspective of what selling your property will bring to your bottom line, as well as showing a model for various pricing proposals and how that bottom line would be affected. Thinking about selling your property? This document, coupled with a CMA, will provide you with all the information you require to see if selling your property makes sense for you now, and if so, what your expected financial result may be when sold.
Thinking about selling and unsure of what your next steps should be? +
We'll consult with you on all landscaping, exterior & interior property "Curb Appeal" projects. Our extensive relationships with high quality vendors will be happy to assist you in consulting and quoting proposed work to insure the highest possible return on the sale of your property. There’s a lot of preparation work that’s involved in selling your home, far more than agreeing to a List Price and placing a For Sale sign in your front yard. To maximize your Return on Investment and insure your highest possible Market Price (what a Buyer will actually pay for your property, the List Price is what the Seller is asking for the property and the figure for what the property is marketed at) a Seller will want to insure their property and improvements (home or outbuildings) are presented to interested Buyers in their best possible condition.
Marketing Your Property +
Marketing expertise coupled with the latest tactics and deliverables will insure your property is represented at the peak of its peers and in front of its competitors. Professionally shot interior and exterior photos coupled with virtual tour video, YouTube, a dedicated property website, property data sheets, extensive use of social media and third party websites (Trulia, ColoProperty.com, Realtor.com, YouTube...) and a mobile site accessed by your own private QR code.
Your property will have exposure in both of the Multiple Listing Systems (MLS) used in Denver, Boulder, and the Front Range. Every real estate agent who's looking to purchase a home in and around this geography will have full access to your listing to introduce and tour with their buyers.
Showing Your Property +
To assist with scheduling showings and to insure accurate showings of your property, we partner with a professional scheduling agency. Partnering with this service insures that only legitimate, licensed real estate agents accompany their clients on a walkthrough tour of your property during a very specific time frame only after being authorized by you. This service provides additional layers of protection and safety for our seller partners, and degrades the ability of insincere buyers or others to just "look around" your property on a whim.
Area and Industry Expertise +
The Boulder, Denver, and Front Range real estate markets are organic and ever changing; month to month, season to season, year over year. Agreeing to a list price isn't the end of the conversation; constant attention to detail on how the market is behaving, recognizing new competitive properties introduced to the neighborhood and city, what properties that have sold, have gone under contract, or have been withdrawn to the market all have an effect on your competitive position in the market. It's our job to insure we're marketed to the limit of what the market will bear for your property, ensuring your strategic goals for real estate are exceeded, and maximizing your return on investment for your property is fulfilled. Monitoring and communicating market conditions is paramount for securing the best possible results for our buyer and seller partners.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When buying a new home, what upgrades should we consider? What holds the most value? Do we upgrade the lot? Do we increase the square footage? Add an extra bedroom?, etc.A:
A lot depends on why you are buying the house. Are you buying it mostly as a home or mostly as an investment? There is a difference.
For the most part, upgrades are high-profit items for builders. They aren't designed to enhance the value of the house, but make you happier with the house you do buy.
If you are looking at your home as an investment, then you buy from the smaller to medium size in the tract and spend only a minimal amount on upgrades. If you are looking at your purchase as a home, then you select upgrades that will enhance your quality of living.
