Why do you ask? Are you thinking of buying or selling? Keep in mind, Price per SF is not a good way to determine a home's value. It's really only good for new construction purposes. If you think about it, price per SF is really about basic math. Smaller square-foot homes command higher per-square-foot costs. Larger square-foot homes command lower per-square-foot prices. Also, keep in mind that price per SF doesn't take into account things like the home's location, lot size, updates, quality of finishes, views, etc. If you're selling, you really need to talk to a local REALTOR who can do a comparative market analysis (CMA) on your home. If you're a buyer, and interested in a property your Realtor will also do a CMA on any property you're interested in. A CMA looks at apples to apples comps that have recently sold in that particular area. They'll also look at current listings that are active or under contract, as well as listings that were listed, but never sold. All of these elements will help determine "Fair Market Value" -- what a ready willing and able buyer is willing to pay for a home in this market.

Good luck!

Hi Fraser,

When your agents lists your home it should be on the checklist to have it either syndicated to Trulia or they enter it manually. It is every important that they do this asap because around 90% of homebuyers start there search online and those are potential buyers for your home.

Best of luck!

Rental scams are common here and on any site that allows the general public to post. Please be very cautious with deals that seem too good to be true. NEVER send money expecting keys back by mail. You can search the address in any search engine to see how the homes are advertised elsewhere. If one listing is much cheaper than other places, it's likely a scam.

Read the scam warning Trulia posts. I've attached a link to it below.

When you find a questionable listing please go to the More button on the listing and then hit the FLAG button on the listing page to warn Trulia and others or email it to

Consider using a REALTOR to find your rental as they have access to the real MLS for the rental market, as there are LOTS of scams out there in the internet world with these 3rd party web sites! ... more

The best way to generate customers is from listings. it attracts buyers looking for that property and others. Sales bring more listings. But the magic question is how to attract listings? That would be blogging. Start a blog here on trulia and open a free account on Active Rain. Blog every day once a day. Write about your area area, neighborhood sor any area events. Both sides attract different customers so you can copy your blog in both sites. DO it faithfully and you will attract business. Use my link below to check out Active Rain as well. ... more

Start with having a professional take new pictures. Make sure you distribute them across the web, as most buyers start searching for homes on the web. You really have one shot to draw them into the rest of your marketing and it starts with the picture. I would also lower the price and listen to the feedback from the people who have already seen the home. Good Luck! ... more

Hi Mark,

You need to know the basics before asking an attorney this question.

Did the lender foreclose on you by non-judicial or judicial foreclosure?
Was your loan a recourse loan or a non-recourse loan?

Once you have these facts then you can go and ask an attorney an appropriate question. I just saved you about $500.00

Good luck!

The property at this address is owned by Capitol Equities, LLC. I checked the online tax records for this address on the Denver County website.

I hope this helps.
