Hi. You are very accurate about your options. Here are the steps I would take:

1. Sit down with an agent and see what your home in its current state would sell for. This will give you an idea of your equity in it.

2. Simultaneously, talk to contractors/architects about a potential redesign and complete scrape. See what the costs of that would be.

3. Compare the costs of the scrape with what your new home after the scrape would sell for. Does it make financial sense? Construction costs in metro Denver are very expensive as well because of the housing market and tight supply.

The math will help answer your question. As will evaluating whether you want to stay in that particular area, what type of new home you want to build, whether you can have the type of home you want in a similar neighborhood etc... and of course the hassles with scraping and building your own home which will take longer than selling and finding a new home (if you can find what you want).

I am happy to help you out with the first part and also with what your redesign would sell for so you can make some educated comparisons.

Thank you,

What are you wanting alerts for? Homes coming on the market? Your best bet is to have a Realtor working for you as a Buyer's Agent. He/she can create a customized search in the local MLS and will send you listings the minute they hit the MLS. Trulia is just a marketing site for us agents and should not be your # 1 source for listings. The listings you see here are very outdated and they never change the status....ever. 9 times out of 10 a buyer will call me about a listing they saw on Trulia that is under contract, or sold. (but shows as "For Sale" here).

If you're the homeowner you can claim the property and edit property facts, including removing photos.

Are you selling your home? If so, are you trying to sell by owner? If that's the case, you can't do that here on Trulia. If it's listed with a Realtor, he/she will need to make the changes in the MLS, and/or claim the listing and manually make the changes here.

Or are you just editing home facts -- like the public records info? If question to you is WHY?

I see people on here wanting to update the photos of their home, showing the cool new upgraded kitchen. But others want photos of their home removed for security and privacy reasons.

If there's an issue with accuracy in terms of # of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, etc. then you'll need to take that up with you county assessor's office. Trulia pulls public records data on homes from county websites. Again...why? If you're adding bedrooms, bathrooms or SF you get a nice new tax bill next year that is higher.

To make these change you can "claim" the property as the owner, and make changes that way. But again...I'd be careful about what you're doing and why.

Hi I agree with Jodi. I have sold such homes recently and there was never an issue with the lender about raising the amount of down payment. If you are being represented by a Realtor, he/she should be handling this for you - and at least setting you up with a new lender!
The B2 should have no effect on the resale - It is what it is - an attached home. Pure and simple.
Get another lender - Good luck

Hi Sara,

This listing is showing as Under Contract so perhaps you put in an offer. If not, let me know if you need help finding a home in this area.

I am an expert on the area since this is near where I was born, raised and where I still live and work. I am in Potter Highland in the Highland neighborhood, which is just across 38th Avenue from where the subject property is located. Sunnyside, or SUNI is the neighborhood association for this area ( The areas boundaries are Federal to the West, Inca to the East, 38th to the South and I-70 to the North. This area is experiencing much change and offers a diverse array of homes from the turn of the century to newer development. The particular area you are asking about is located about a block away from Cafe Cafe which is a charming little coffee shop and across the street from Cafe Cafe is Camargo's which has THE BEST homemade tortillas in town! Their bean and chicharrón burrito is one of my guilty pleasures!

At any rate, I really love this area and have sold many homes in Sunnyside! The homes are definitely less expensive in many cases and just as charming as the homes in the HUNI (Highland United Neighbors, Inc.) area (bounded by Federal, 38th on the North, Speer on the South and I-25 on the East).

I hope this information was helpful to you. If indeed you do have the property under contract, I'd like to personally welcome you to the neighborhood!
