I use a Google Voice number, and it works great, along with a dedicated email address for each of my properties. I was even able to get an easy-to-remember phone number whose last 4 digits were the same as the property street address!
With Google Voice, you can set it to ring through to any phone you want - or NEVER ring through, always playing an outgoing message you record and then recording the caller's response. An additional option is to receive an email or text msg with an automated transcription of the caller's message and Caller ID, so you always know when you've received a call.... more
Naropa has two campuses. One is closer to downtown Boulder and the other is in East Boulder. Linden is not that close to the East Boulder Campus, so she might want to consider where the bulk of her classes will take place.... more
The agent must adhere to the MLS rules and regulations. Most MLS's will allow Back Up status. That does not mean that most agents will continue showing it. I would tell my buyers that the home is already in the process of being sold to another buyer so it is not a good use of our time to entertain that house as a possibility.
Under the circumstances you describe, it might be to your benefit to make a list of all the needed renovations and show estimates for each project. Just give it to them right up front - along with the contractors' name and contact info. The buyers need to be able to project the cost of the house + repairs so that they know if the property is worth the total cost.... more
Hi New2Boulder - the last year may be an inaccurate guidepost. The now expired tax credit affected the sales market, especially during the Spring of 2010 and the Fall (Sept-Oct) of 2009.

Hi Peggy. I've lived in Boulder since 1993 and, YES, Linden has some great real estate from its Western-most point to the East. Actually from 3rd and Linden to Broadway, you'll find a gorgeous, tree-lined street with luxury homes hidden in the foliage and a price point any where from $9million to $1.5million. Between Broadway and 19th, you'll find Melody Heights and along Linden in Melody Heights, you have 1960's ranch-style homes on .25-acre lots that have been steadily appreciating for the last 5 years and the average price is $550,000. A new development has been multi million dollar homes being built one and two blocks north of Linden, in this area. Between 19th and 26th on Linden you get 1 acre to 2 acre lots with prices ranging between $1million to $4million.
