When you joined your MLS you should have looked at their listing syndication policy. This is perfectly legal, and normal. Sometimes you can "opt out" of it, but frankly, sellers love seeing their listings get advertised on these sites. I use it as a selling feature in my listing presentations. But of course, when your listing gets put on those sites, they sell ad space to other agents. Maybe you need to talk to your managing broker about the pros and cons of listing syndication. ... more

I have been looking at ads for a home listed with several agencies. Same address on this property but they all have different prices listed, one says 3 bathrooms and another says 2 1/2 baths. One listing says 2239 sq. feet and another says 1492 sq. feet. They all have the same picture of the house from the outside and in. So confusing when I know it is the same house. I hate to call a Agent, but might have to. Help!! ... 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:

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

Hi Skrassenbaum: This question has been up for a couple months, so you hopefully have resolved your problem. But for others who seek excellence in particular programs I would suggest going directly to the school districts for answers. Then, if time permits, visit a few individual schools that sound most appropriate. This would be especially true in a case like this where parents have narrowed down the search to a couple districts. I think sometimes we try too hard to obtain independent information. And this can be good because the school personnel will be a bit biased. But parents and other display biases also. People like to be helpful. So they may offer opinions based on little real information.

Best,

MIke,

Dana is right steering is illegal for us to do. But I can point out that Denver is ranked in the top for being single, beer, open space trails, hour away from great skiing and all the wonderful thing we can do in the mountains. Denver boarders Englewood. The real question is what is your budget, amenities you want, how many rooms do you want , do you want to live in a high rise; apartment complex; or some studio in a cool old house?

If you would like my help give me a call to go over my service at 720.436.4503

Please clarify if you're referring to rental communities, or communities where the owner's HOA fees include WiFI. There are plenty of rental communities that have WiFi available, or included in the rent. There are relatively small number of HOAs that include it.

Best of luck.

It really depends on the place you shop at for groceries. Whole foods is a lot more expensive than a Save-a-lot.

As of Today, the rent in the Denver Metro area is high. For an average 4bed home, you should be able to rent it out for 1100-1400 depending on location/condition of the home.

Wisdom Real Estate #1 Reviewed! answered:
Most HOA companies have their rules and regulations posted online somewhere. You can always try to confirm any information via those types of links. Just google the name of the apartment complex and you should be able to find the management company. Unfortunately, as other agents have mentioned below, there are so many different inclusion and exclusions for utilities these days, it's too difficult to say. ... more

I own a home in 80205 and have a lot of experience with that neighborhood. I found this article to be pretty informative, and thought it might help! http://blogs.westword.com/latestword/2012/06/denver_80205_whiter_gentrification.php

80205 was in the top 25 zip codes in the entire nation in 2012 for gentrification.

It's one of Denver's most promising zip codes in my opinion.

Ron Rovtar answered:
Virgilee: Hopefully you got this issue resolved a long time ago. But, to others who have had problems convincing management companies to take action, I would offer the following advice:

SOME (and I emphasize the word "some") management companies seem to have a policy of ignoring the first complaint, or first several complaints, about any issue. They know probably 60 percent of reported problems will be worked out without their intervention. So the squeaky-wheel rule applies for these companies. You must keep calling them, keep documenting the problem and contact as many people as possible. Members of this sub-group of companies usually handle the problems that don't go away.

Best,
