Julie Montgomery answered:
Hi Carol -- not really. I live in a pool community (also tennis courts, trails, etc) in Littleton, which is great but it doesn't add dollar value to home prices. Plus, communities with pools have HOAs, which can be a turn off for some people. For me, I purposely bought a home in this neighborhood because I think HOA neighborhoods hold their value much better. At day's end, it's still the size, location and condition of the house. Julie Montgomery, RE/MAX Masters, Inc., Greenwood Village, CO. ... more

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

Absolutely. Contact your listing agent and direct him,or her to make the change. You will,need to sign an amendment to the listing, but it's very easy to do.

I will use what ever buses they provide for the 16th street mall. I believe it is a good service that adds value to going downtown.

Echo Beth's comment below. I consider Denver City & County (same border) to be Urban or mostly Urban. There are stretches of Denver City & County that are very suburban, namely the Northeast area of town that stretches out to the airport where the neighborhoods of Green Valley Ranch and Montbello are located. Denver City & County is relatively small compared to most major cities. The Metro area is composed of 7 Counties, Denver being one of them and located in the dead center of the metro area. The other six counties and their towns or cities would be considered suburban in my book. ... more

Any legal questions must be referred to an attorney. Real estate brokers like those of us here on Trulia are not allowed to answer such questions.

My experience is small pets not so bad but large or multiple pets will be difficult. If you are willing to pay a hefty pet deposit, sometimes landlords will say ok. Good luck!

Hi jdenler18,

I have seen these at houses. Check out the website for the city and county of Denver for regulations and whether you will need a permit at

Let me know if you have any additional questions. I do know contractors that would do an excellent job if you need something like that built.

Call me if I can help at 303-856-8980.

Sharon Young - Realtor® answered:
Wow...... that's sort of like asking how fast should I be driving......depends on the road conditions and other factors.

You should be asking this to a reputable Heating Professional in addition or instead of realtors. Some suggestions to consider are:
* Have you had the furnace certified and know that there is not a cracked or defective heat exchanger?
* What is your cash / income / cash flow situation?
* Would it be prudent to purchase a home warranty for about $400 per year that will cover the furnace should it stop working?

Let me know if this gives you any thoughts for maping out your decision making process.

Jim & Nancy Lynch answered:
There are many reasons for choosing a variable speed furnace, but the main reason is comfort. The term "variable speed" refers to the furnace's fan motor, which moves at different speeds to precisely control the flow of heated and cooled air throughout your home. Better airflow control means a better balance of temperature and humidity.

Variable speed furnaces are also more efficient as compared to a single speed furnace as well as quieter in operation.

Jon Roberts answered:
Mountains of snow? We don't see THAT much snow here in Denver. We get out share, but usually pretty manageable. First, any all-wheel or four-wheel drive will do much better than any two-wheel drive car. Snow tires or good all-season with sufficient tread is recommended. As silly as it sounds, be sure to keep an ice scraper in the car. I remove it each spring and then forget once, the first time it's needed in the winter! An emergency package is highly recommended. I've been stranded on closed highways in the mountains more than once. Some food, water and blanket are key essentials. You can add all kinds of other items, room permitted (flashlight, game/cards, etc). ... more

Susan Rogers answered:
I have not listed one, but have been working with buyers who need to get an FHA loan and it's dreadfully difficult to find qualifying properties - to the point where we end up only looking at HUD homes. There are a few lenders out there who can do a similar program (low down, easier qualification) but they still need the project to meet certain qualifications on owner occupancy, financials and low delinquencies.

If you are listing a property, and you can't get the HOA to recertify, try qualifying it with Key Bank Community Loans, so you can offer an option to buyers.
