The CC&R's would have been established when the builder submitted his plans for the community to the building department, which was very likely a year or two prior to offering the properties for sale. Limits on non-owner occupied units are common because the percentage of non-owner occupied units inhibits the ability for any and all buyers to obtain loans to purchase properties within the complex. In other words, if there are too many non-owner occupied units and the market takes a dive, investors who do not occupy the unit as their primary residence are more likely to stop paying their mortgage & HOA dues and allowing the banks to foreclose on their property. The more foreclosures the lower the prices drop and the more the HOA suffers from unpaid dues. So to limit risk, they limit the number of investor purchases.

You need to work with the listing agent and builder to ensure you are within the first 15% of dwellings purchased by investors. If not, you will likely be unable to get financing yourself when your lender audits the building for investor purchases.

Kjunceford,

Englewood is Arapahoe County and Lone tree is in Douglas County. Why do you ask? do you have a particular property in mind?

Mercedes,

I am not familiar with the term 'free tax foreclosure home'. Care to explain? Contact me. These days it is very difficult to purchase a home having bad credit or no credit. The lending rules have recently tightened considerably. Speak to a lender about this and about the best ways to improve your credit.

Hello Ed,
You do not have any advantage as the renter. Short sales can take months, I've seen it take up to two years. If you like the property you can always make an offer after getting a comprehensive market data from your real estate agent. I recommend attending a home buyer class. If you are buying in Englewood or surrounding area, they hold them monthly. The next one is on March 18th, see link below. Then get prequalified and evaluate whether or not you wish to pursue it. Just be forewarned, short sales are frustrating both as the buyer and seller, be prepared for delays and know the difference between FHA and non-FHA short sales. ... more

Greetings Beverly,
Unfortunately, when you typed in ENGLEWOOD, it jumped to Colorado instead of Florida. The beach is too far from this Englewood! I would submit a new message and watch for the state!
Happy New Year!

Andrea,

There are several maintenance free villas/homes (we call them patio homes around here!). If you are looking to buy them, then they usually don't have pet restrictions, since you are the owner. If you would like more information about Englewood and all that it has to offer, feel free to visit my website:

If you would like me to do a search for these types of homes in Englewood, CO I would gladly do so. Feel free to contact me!

Kris Hansen answered:
Each county uses the assessed value to calculate taxes. Each county is different, some assess higher, some are lower. My suggestion is to go to the county assessor's website and look at the specific property. As a homeowner keep a close eye on any changes to your assessed value, and be prepared to dispute it should it get adjusted much too high. Assessed values are derived in a straight-line method of valuation and are not a clear picture of market value. The current assessed value is also based on figures from the previous 2 years typically.
Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions!
