You can search for a buyer broker using the Trulia agent search or can ask your loan officer, friends or family for a referral. I work with a great referal network that can give you some names and numbers of buyer agents in your area if you have no luck. You do not necc need a EBB agent as working with a buyer agent who has both listed and sold homes, may offer a better insight to you how the listing process works to assist you in getting the best price and terms, you want an agent who will work with you through each step of the buying process.... more
Most utility companies will give you a 12 or 24 month average of utilities if you just call customer service. As a home inspector, I do this all the time for my clients. They appreciate knowing what their utilities might be. You may have to call more than one company, i.e. electric, gas, water and etc. Usually gas and electric are the same company and water/sewer is another company.... more
When you meet with the landlord, offer to bring your friendly dogs for a meet and greet. Then offer a couple of month's rent additional as a "Pet Fee" if they are worried. I would also consider looking at private homes to rent, rather then apartments. A single family home owner will be more likely to consider pet, plus there won't be the possible liability since there won't be so many nearby neighbors to interact with your dogs.... more
There are some great stable neighborhoods in the Southern Metro area with great schools and an easy commute to Denver. Several friends have recently convinced me of the 80122 zip code, Littleton and Centenial, CO. They are within the Littleton Public Schools, which consistently have top 25 ranked schools. I'd be happy to help with any other questions they may have or assist with their search.

Hi Jpeppercolorado: It sounds as if you are trying to find a realty or real estate agent who will foot the bill for cleaning a property as part of the listing process. My guess is that most agents would want to stay away from this because it represents a fairly large potential liability. Things sometimes get damaged during cleaning. Occasionally, things get stolen by cleaners, or owners come to believe that items were taken, even when they were simply misplaced long ago. And, of course, it always is possible that, after spending money on cleaning, the property fails to sell. What you might be able to negotiate is reimbursement for cleaning expenses as a commission reduction at closing. It all depends on the agent or agency.
Since you are building your house, I imagine you planned out where you would like your furniture to go. Make sure that you put outlets in useful places where you would need to plug things in. Two on each wall, especially on walls were electronics will most likely be place is crucial. Extension cords are helpful, but a pain. By designing your own house, you decided where your electrical fixtures are placed! Good luck! http://www.rdselectric.com/index.php... more
