Downtown Fort Collins is a great area to invest in! There are several amazing loft properties available near Old Town. The biggest question to define is your budget, as their is quite a range of price points in Downtown loft inventory available. You will likely want to work with a Buyers Agent who is knowledgeable about the Old Town area specifically and perhaps has even lived in Old Town too, such as myself. Feel free to view ALL lofts available at my website or email me and I can send you some that would be a good fit!... more
Good for you! Always happy to hear of extremely successful people. The principle and interest would be $3,341.91 over 30 years. Maybe you should consider buying a $350,000 house such as the one at 3130 Tradewind, or a $500,000 house and investing the rest of your money in real estate,

One would assume you are talking about Hearthfire in Skyrim. Haven't played it but I love the music. This might help: http://www.gamespot.com/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim/forum/hearthfire-issues-help-needed-63959115/
Also this is the greatest question I've seen posted on Trulia.... more
As this is still a very new development, I'm not sure thatyou can tell if improving or declining. There are a total of 9 listings there, and 4 have closed, so 5 are still available. It seems that all that have been listed are either still listed or sold, so that is good news.
I would assume that you will have more owner occupied at this point, just due to the price point of these units.
If you'd like to get in to see some of them, I'd be happy to help you with that. Feel free to write me at Sean@HawaiianShirtGuy.com. Thanks for your time!... more
Inventory is low, but it has been that way for the last few years in Fort Collins. It is especially lower in the winter as sellers are reluctant to move during the snowy months. However, there are also homes that have been on the market for many months that were either priced too high and Sellers are getting impatient and need to sell. This is an advantage for Buyers, as there is more room to negotiate. I just showed a home in Wellington yesterday that is easily $10K beneath the market value because the Seller just wants to move on! Do you know the area, and what style of house you are looking for?

Hi, IMHO if you want them go ahead and have them installed, it's not going to hurt anything. Your having the home built for you, so go ahead and do it the want it. I think the more lights in a home the better. Just have them wired on a separate switch from the fan.... more
Well Amber, I'd be happy to help you to figure out your next move, but I would need some more information. Please feel free to email me at Sean@HawaiianShirtGuy.com and we can start the conversation to find out where to begin the search.
The little things count and it might be worth investigating what you will need if you buy a vehicle that has to be charged. Even if your are dead set against going electric, the next owner may like them. If you take up golf, you might need some accommodation for a golf cart. Make sure you have an adequate electrical panel. That goes for the basement, too.
Here are a few other suggestions:
Lots of outlets. With my last home, I made sure I had strategically placed outlets and light fixtures. Some builders offer packages and some let you pick and choose how many and where they will go.
The 220s. Absolutely have at least one 220 located in the garage (that is in addition to the kitchen and laundry room). A few 110s are good, too.
Outdoor outlets and fixtures. Have a covered outlet installed for the front yard and back yard. You might coordinate your electrical needs with the outside lighting that fits your lifestyle. If you're the Chevy Chase type who needs to light up the entire county at Christmas time, now's the time to install that extra outlet.
Energy savers. Florescent is good for laundry rooms, basement work areas and a few other places where you're going to be for short periods. But lavish on lighting for dining rooms and kitchens where you will be spending most of your time. The builder's designer or the builder will tell you the kitchen is definitely where you want to spend any extra cash.
While you're at it, you might want to investigate installing a thermostat that communicates with your computer. Smart homes are here.
There are many different membership packages available, depending on whether you live within the gates of the community or outside- and how far away, so it would be best to contact the club if you are interested in joining.
I'm not privy to any details about the litigation, and IF, not when, Mr. Frazier is found guilty would be more correct- but I do not know the answer to that question.... more
Almost any single family home should be eligible for FHA or VA financing. If the property is in bad shape it could require repairs before it would insurable by FHA or VA. Only time you should need to worry about a property being FHA or VA approved would be with a condo. Feel free to contact me direct if you have any other questions or would like rate quotes.... more
You probably won't have problems selling it, bit I would consider it a waste of money to convert it to a 5th bedroom, as it won't really add value to the home. Use it as an office, or maybe a sitting room with book shelves. That's probably the best use of the space.
Another option would be to purchase a home that doesn't have the loft and maybe has the higher ceiling in the living room, as that also adds some value to the home.
Feel free to e-mail me if you have further questions, or, if you already have an agent, I would ask him/her for thoughts. If you don't have an agent, you should consider getting one, as a Buyers Representative, so you have someone in your corner to protect your interests. I am an ABR, which is an Accredited Buyer's Representative, so if you have questions about a Buyers Agent, please feel free to e-mail or call. Sean@HawaiianShirtGuy.com or 970-402-5642.
I currently have a listing in Bellvue that made it through the fire. Hard to say which way values will go in the immeditade future BUT the area/wildlife/trees will come back. Insurance companies had a moratorium on new policies while the fires were buring but I don't belive that is still the case. Interesting silver lining: the new interest in my listing from those that lost their homes and want to stay in the area.... more
The loft depends on teh access, full set of stairs, open stairway, door, open to the bedroom below etc. A master retreat/suite is often more preferred to a loft. A loft may not appeal to all people as its use can be limited,.... more
