There are a variety of reasons. The most public answers are: banks will only show so much loss per quarter, banks are so under staffed they can't process their files and of course the problems with not processing files properly. The smartest reason may be; values are rising why not let the values rebound before selling. ... more

Ryan Fagin answered:
The answer to your question is really contingent on the exact amount you need per month to be satisfied with the investment. Because it is sitting empty, you are taking a significantly larger hit than you would be if it were being rented for a portion below what you owe per month. This significantly large monthly hit, multiplied by the amount of months it has been empty may easily exceed the amount you owe on it. In this situation it would make more sense to consider selling out right. If you could hypothetically rent it, than you need to realize that if the tenant does agree to some lease to purchase option, it carries little to no legal weight. The situation gives the tenant an option to opt out very easily from buying the home.

The Price per square foot of a bungalow under 1200 SqFt in Washington Park runs between $259 and $565, depending on the condition. There is wide variation in the price per square foot because it is an old neighborhood that has gone through many phases of remodeling and updating. When you are reading descriptions of the houses online and it says "remodeled", rest assured that can mean any number of things. I have a complete and detailed analysis of Washington Park done. I would be happy to send it to you. Please reply with an email directly to me and I'll send it.

Denver became a strong sellers market because we have never had a huge explosion of growth like other areas; Florida, Arizona and we don't rely on just one major industry like, many areas on both coasts. Not having a huge growth explosion has afforded us to not have then the dip in our market keeping us on an even keil. Also, there are so many great agents opinion! ... more

Your question has to be a little more specific. How many Bedrooms and Bathrooms are you looking for? What type of amenities does the space have to have. In which neighborhood are you looking to rent?

We would love to answer your question. If you're looking to live Downtown by the school, we can help.

It' s at least holding its own right now which is better than several areas. West of the park is prime for growth in value versus the other 3 sides.

I would say it is very much stronger with vacancy rates being at an all time low, and rental prices are increasing because of the demand.

Hi BoulderSuZ:

I think the number of answers you have received to this question speaks to the complexities of our current situation. If you consider that the government has not been terribly successful in stimulating participation in programs that would help troubled borrowers and also the fact that we are hearing a lot about a new wave of foreclosures as the banks feel more pressure to show their stakeholders good results, it gets really hard to predict what will happen based on any single factor such as lower indebtedness.

It really does boggle the mind, which may be part of what is happening to our politicians who seem to have retreated to the simple answers of specific ideologies. The situation has simply become to complex. I fear improvement will only come when the politicians really get to work putting out all the fires, small, medium and large.

Kind regards,
Ron Rovtar

It's far and away cheaper to buy. With rent all you do is give away your money and in the end have nothing to show for it. You can't even deduct rent from your taxable income. With owndership you have your initial equity, appreciation, tax advantages, freedom to change your space as you see fit, and if you're the type, pride of ownership. ... more

Joetta Fort answered:
Anything's possible, we can't make guarantees. IMO it depends on the jobs situation, which certainly has not gotten better. If inflation also sets in, and interest rates go up, there will be even fewer buyers out there. Still, if your client is a buyer I think it's bad advice to wait for lower prices, while risking higher interest rates. ... more

Hello Erin
As far as I am aware, there isn't one specific place that open houses are listed. Indeed Trulia, Zillow, are sources. You may also want to check out Craigslist, Denver Backpage as well.
