If you are willing to complete a rental application and back ground check, pay First/Last months rent and a security deposit there are many landlords out there willing to work with you. Honesty is the best policy, just be upfront and forthright in your application and explanation of this past felony. Don't let it haunt you. Are you gainfully employed? If so, Have your employer write a reference on your behalf.
You need to work with a property management company who can help you secure good rental housing.
Check on line ads daily. The rental market is tight right now. More rental properties will open up after the school year ends in May. That typically when most folks move. Good luck!!... more

There are quite a few great communities. SW seems like it would be a good area close to work and relatively close to Boulder. I have lived and worked in the area for most of my life and could help you identify areas that would be a good fit.... more
4 & 5 don't really apply in my market (we didn't have many foreclosures and new construction is about as rare as it ever was though redevelopment continues). #3 is happening here - loads of cash buyers, multiple bids, etc. Maybe #2 has some impact.
My question is about #1 - why are sellers hesitant? Here it's in part because there's nothing for them to buy if they want to stay in the area. Others talk about holding on since they think they'll make more money in the future. But I'm not sure that explains it all. It's nuts - inventory is SO low.
The way to make a lot of money in real estate is to go against the flow - buy when others won't and sell when others aren't. Don't be a sheep!!... more
Hi Michael - Normally as a Keller Williams real estate agent, when we enter our listings into the MLS, we syndicate it to several websites including Trulia.com. We normally see it post no later than 48 hours.
Are you listing your home with an agent or are you trying to market it yourself?

A fully finished basement, as you described not only ADDS value but a mother in law basement. While its not included in the above grade square footage it adds tons of value. It can be looked as extra income to an investor or someone who wants to rent it out as well. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you!... more
Seriously ... do yourselves a HUGE favor and terminate your offer. No -- no one can force you to sign anything.
The seller's realtor submits offers to the bank. If he/she knows what theyr'e doing, which is sounds like they are inexperienced, only one offer goes to the bank, which is always the buyer's "highest and best." The seller has to approve and then it goes to the bank.
Next, you will wait at least six months before the bank even looks at the file. Short sales and bank sales look great on paper, but they never translate in reality. You buy these properties in "as is" condition, and 90% the time, they need repairs.
My guess is you are young buyers who need better advice than what you're receiving now. There are plenty of "real sellers" out there, with homes that you can close in 30 days and THEY will fix anything that's broken. Please contact me if I can help further, and please know this: you make money when you BUY, not when you sell. Hire a professional -- we're 100% free to buyers.

I would love to take a look at your home and give you some pointers. Keep in mind that kitchens and bathrooms make a huge difference however in our current market be careful of what you do and how much you spend on the upgrades as you are not doing them for you.

Hi -- Trailmark is a very nice, newer subdivision in Jefferson County Littleton, but the values tend to be pretty high. The homes are newer, but many are "upside down" on value, as they were purchase directly from the builder at the height of the real estate market. I'm guessing because of that, there are several rentals. Please let me know if I can help further, Julie Montgomery, RE/MAX Masters, Inc., 303-906-3150, www.jmontgomery.com... more
Check your Contract to see if you both cecked/signed the ARBITRATION/MEDIATION clause:
You have two choices at this point:
Give in, do the work and keep the sale, or,
Let him walk and keep the Deposit if you can.
It is as simple as that:
How badly do you want to keep this deal?
Good luck and may God bless... more
90% of all our buyers are from out of state and are buying very expensive properties. People can see that real estate investments are a great place to park money, low risk and you get the use of the asset. You can't ski, fish, hunt, hike, raft or entertain your friends and family on a stock certificate or mutual fund. !!!!!!!!... more
