I have been showing homes to a client looking for a cabin in the woods (so to speak).
Our first stop was BlackHawk, home to many casinos. It was a rustic home in the woods, sitting on a couple of acres. The house was in Short Sale, and the tenant was on the premises. This was not the most pleasant experience that I have had. Listing agents should always
request that tenants vacate whenever possible. If a buyer cannot freely tour the place, they cannot get comfortable enough to see all the possibilities the property has to offer. This could cause a buyer to look elsewhere, as would be the case for my buyers.
I try to be compassionate of those struggling to win the battle with our economy, knowing that this can be a very stressful time in their lives.
We were gracious and social and I do hope the homeowners felt that we were not too imposing.
Short Sales can be a difficult situation, because if a home does not sell in short sale, foreclosure is sure to come, this one was pegged for foreclosure less then 10 days from visiting, so stress was very apparent.

Livermore was the next ride into the mountains. This home was a foreclosure. A beautiful (unfinished) log home. Great hideout from everyone and everything. We pulled into the property to be welcomed by two moose. This is the great outdoors!
The property bordered the National Forest, the perfect location for hunting or just getting away from the hustle and bustle the city for awhile and watching the wild life go by.

Not sure where the next stop will take us,  but it sure has been interesting.
I also show homes that the average joe is selling without the shortsale or foreclosure issues.
If anyone is in need of a realtor working in the Northern Colorado area, please give me a call at 970-290-9965 or email me at renita.martel@coloradohomes.com I would be happy to help out!
