What we do as your Erie 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.



Residential Property Buyers

On the buyers side we have experience in new home and existing home sales, as well as experience helping the investor. We believe the buying process should be about finding the right home.

Sellers of Residential Property

We offer full service sales assistance and can advise on sales price, staging your home and educating you on what can be expected in regards to offers in today's sales market.





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.



 

Erie Area Information


Prior to the 1870s and the development of the northern coal fields, settlers living along Coal Creek eked out their living as farmers or merchants. The few communities existing along the Front Range were miles apart by stagecoach or horseback. Throughout the 1860s, stagecoach companies delivered freight, mail and passengers to destinations along the foothills. The Overland Stage traveled from Denver to Laramie each day, following much the same route as the present U.S. Highway 287. Contact with distant friends and relatives improved with the coming of the railroad to Erie in 1871. Even after its arrival, however, travelers heading to Longmont had to continue on by stagecoach or spring wagon; those bound for Boulder detrained at the Erie terminal and boarded a stage for the final destination. Social interaction among early settlers was limited, and families traveled great distances to attend church, school or grange meetings. Many relied on circuit-riding preachers to bring them the gospel once or twice a month, and one such man was the Reverend Richard Van Valkenburg, civic leader and a founder of Erie. Having spent many years as a Methodist preacher in the coal towns near Erie, Pennsylvania, the Reverend thought it fitting to bestow that name on its western counterpart.

Now coal mining and the railroad is a part of Erie's past, Erie is quickly growing into a popular destination for those who desire a convenient commute to Boulder, Denver, and our surrounding Front Range communities while appreciating small town charm and all that goes with it. Erie has over 21,000 citizens and shares a border with Boulder to the West, with Lafayette and Broomfield to its South and Longmont to the North. Not surprisingly growing families, young professionals, outdoor enthusiasts, and active adults are drawn to Erie's panoramic location, scenic trails, championship golf course- Colorado National Golf Club-, recreational activities, and more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Many are also attracted by Erie's award-winning 63,000 square foot Community and Recreation Center, and 20,000 square foot Community Library, as well as plenty of activities, events, dining, craft breweries, cidery, and the Erie Air Park.

It's future looks robust as Erie has been named by Global Trade magazine in 2014 as one of "America's Best Cities for Global Trade." This distinction places Erie on the magazine's list of cities companies should consider when looking for a great business environment, a well-educated or skilled workforce, or a globally minded city. According to Global Trade, Erie ranks as one of the Top 10 cities for "Skilled Workforce". So while Erie may be small now nearly 56 percent of Erie citizens have college degrees, roughly twice the national average; providing a lot of value to big local employers like the University of Colorado, IBM and Oracle. Erie is projected to nearly double in size by 2025 with people continually attracted to its wealth of open space and trails.

Olde Columbine High School

We also run a traditional schedule, meaning we have seven 50-minute class periods every day, rather than a block schedule. These are the main characteristics that differentiate us from the large, traditional high schools.



Adult Education/lincoln Center

Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students.
