I love using a site like city-data.com. Sometimes they have past historic info that you might be looking for, other times they might not. Try going to http://www.city-data.com/zips/80238.html or searching the zip code you're looking for and see if they have crime stats on there. ... more

"Off Market" deal otherwise known as a "Pocket Listing", are terms used to refer to a home that is for sale but is not listed on the MLS. There are many reasons why a seller may choose to sell their home as a "Pocket Listing". For examples on reasons why sellers list their home as a "Pocket Listing", whether they sell or not, and the Sotheby's difference, have a look, here: http://www.desireelapin.com/pocketlisting/ ... more

Good Morning,

I've recently listed my home at 3217.5 Osage street. It is a beautiful Victorian era (1891) two story townhome. You are literally steps from some of my favorite restaurants in Denver. It is located walking distance to LoDo, and Coors Field.

Please take a look.

Cheers!

Kevin

Like alot of prospecting, it's great for some people and not so much for others. But when it's good, it is REALLY effective. For me, it's really my best and only form of lead generation. Just get a few scripts and go. Here's a few I like:

Sally Grenier answered:
Boundary maps for what? Towns? Neighborhoods? Schools? Zip codes? Not sure what you're asking. Are you searching for a home to buy? I wouldn't rely on sites like Trulia or Zillow or any other so called real estate website for that matter. The data here is outdated and often inaccurate. For accurate real estate listing info, your only source should be the local MLS -- which every Realtor has access to.

If you'd like to contact me directly, I'd be happy to help you find what you're looking for!

Try going through a private owner and see if they can work with you. Check Craigslist or just look for signs that say for rent by owner and call the number. Hope this helps.

My NC Homes…, Real Estate Pro in Chapel Hill, NC
Wed Apr 15, 2015
My NC Homes Team answered:
There's no such thing as average utility costs. How old is the house? How well is it insulated? Are the windows single pane or low-E/Argon filled thermal pane? How new or old is the hating and cooling system? How many people live in the home and what are their lifestyles like? What's the square footage?

Even getting the specific utility information for a specific property is data without context as you do not ever know how the current occupants live. Do they keep the heat set at 65 in the winter and wear sweaters or do they crank it up and walk around in shorts and a t-shirt? A house with 2 adults and 3 teenagers is going to consume more than the same house and two working professionals who are at work all day.

Buyers ask this question regularly, and while it can't hurt to get the specific utility bills for a property you're going to buy, it's still of limited value and may or may not reflect your utility usage. If the amount of the utility bills may be a deciding factor in whether to purchase a home or not, my advice is ratchet down your purchase price.

I think Thornton is one of the best areas for that price point where you can still get a pretty good buy for the $$

Hi I live in Westminster and the commute to downtown is really quick and easy, that's what I love about the area. I'm 10-15 minutes from either Boulder or Denver on a good day. In between the two areas it could get cheaper but then again the closer to downtown gets very pricy. Highlands is a nice area and very expensive so I'm just kind of trying to think of what kind of areas you might like based on liking the Highlands.

Other than being really close to downtown the only thing that really stood out was maybe the Orchards in Westminster. It's not in between but it is a really nice little area and there are shops and dining along with some nice apartments that might work for you. The nice thing about that area is like a block or two off of I-25 s you can just jump on the highway and be downtown in a short time without all of the side road traffic.

Also around highway 76 and Pecos, it is an up and coming area that is really close to downtown. There is some new construction going up I just can't think of any apartment/rental complex's over there that would work.

Not sure if I was any help at all but if I can help in anyway please let me know and welcome to Denver!

Thank you,
Kat
