Hello OddWheelz (I'd love to hear the story behind that email address!). RealtyTrac charges $199 for a subscription for a service that any good Realtor will happily provide to you at no charge. You can be assured that the banks and mortgage companies with properties to sell make sure that the information on their properties is available to Realtors. RealtyTrac does not have the inside "trac" on any properties that a Realtor can't share with you. Find a good local Realtor that has experience with guiding clients through the process of buying foreclosed properties. I should add, please do not limit your search to just foreclosures, short sales and HUD properties. You just as likely to find a bargain in properties for sale by individual owners (those listed with Realtors, not For Sale By Owner properties). The companies with foreclosed and other distressed properties are fully aware of the market value of their properties. As professionals, they take a dispassionate view of the properties and can wait for a great offer. Individual sellers, on occasion, may be in a position where discounting their properties make sense. Call me at 303-994-5815 or email me at email@example.com if I can be of any help.... more
Hello Mary. How appropriate that I write this on the eve of Veterans Day. Thank you for your support of our veterans - a truly worthy cause! I have helped recent and not-so-recent veterans find homes and found that is very rewarding. I grew up in Wheat Ridge and know the area very well. I also am the founder of Patio Home Pros, which helps folks find a home with main floor living (no stairs!) and no exterior maintenance (sell the lawnmower!). I have a few recent listings that seem like they would be perfect for you. Call me at 303-994-5815 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Web site: www.patiohomepros.com. Happy Veterans' Day!... more
Yes, $243 is the monthly HOA fee. It includes the community pool, snow removal, exterior maintenance, roof, and all utilities except electric (according the MLS). I love the location of this building. It is within walking distance of some of my favorite restaurants!
