Assuming you also want to rent the home, right? Best areas in metro Denver would be Kiowa, Franktown, Elizabeth, and Brighton, Fort Lupton, Lochbuie. Best of luck!

Ron Herdt answered:
You should do a short sale addendum when dealing with a short sale. If you didn't know it was a short sale at the time, you can always add it once you find out. It's not unusual to get ignored on a short sale when you're the buyer. Banks get multiple offers and often ignore all the buyers except the highest one.

Is your agent a buyer agent for you? If so, this agent should be working on your behalf. I do a lot of short sales and know the workings of the process. You are welcome to contact me if you are not under a buyer agency agreement with anyone.

Good luck with your home purchase. I hope it goes well for you.

Bill Donovan answered:
Things are ALWAYS shady in a short sale!!
When trying to buy a short sale I always explain to my buyers to get into a "seige" mentality, because it could take forever to break down those walls.
Perhaps your agent has not done alot of them and wasn't aware of the issues.
If you need something by a certain date, a short sale is never the answer.
Good Luck

With Bank Owned homes often when one offer falls through the bank opens it back up to everyone to make offers again. Ask your agent to ask the banks agent if they will accept a back up or not. ... more

Could be tough in Denver. Try some family or friends. You may also want to consider buying a duplex to four plex as they will use the income of the other units to qualify you. Have fun! ... more

This does not sound like a hard request. Try and also try the rental home section here in Good success with your search. Whenever the time is right you might consider purchasing. There are may advantages to purchasing as opposed to renting -

There are many variables to consider Crfox77. Using your own plan or use a builders footprint/blueprint? How many sq feet? Finishes? Beds, baths? Style? Basement? Garage? Size of the lot can determine the size too. I recommend you talk with a couple builders and ask to see some past builds/examples. There are many to choose from but do your due diligence to proceed with a good builder. ... more

I don't know anyone who wants to buy in the area, but I represent two other homeowners who have rented out their homes within just a few miles of your house. It's a great rental market, and being a landlord is easy when you hire a professional manager such as myself to help you. I handle rentals all over town. Call me if you have questions! ... more

Don Tepper answered:
I can't address your local conditions. However, interest rates are very low, so that helps. It also helps to be properly priced--meaning at the low end of the comps.

It's not a great time to sell. For most of the country, it hasn't been for a number of years. Still, if you need to sell, then the question isn't one of timing but one of selling within a reasonable time frame for the most you can get. Look for a good local Realtor who specializes in representing sellers--a listing agent.

Hope that helps.

Ron Thomas answered:
So, you are asking Realtors to help you save money, by not paying any money to Realtors?

You should also save some money on lawyers by not hiring a lawyer either.

You can eliminate a Title Company, and not worry about giving a good Title.

And you obviously do not need a Notary; this is between Friends.

Maybe a local Stationary Store has a generic form you can use.

Good luck and may God bless

Julie Montgomery answered:
It will have a huge impact when you try to re-sell. Lots without premiums are the WORST lots in the subdivision. Don't do it! Also, their are a lot of "hidden" expenses when you buy from a builder. Things like window coverings, fences, landscaping, etc. add up big time after you close. The bad news is when you go to sell, you won't a dime back from these improvements, as they are expected on a resale home. You might want to shop newer resale homes before stepping into a new one. Let me know if I can help further. Julie Montgomery, RE/MAX Masters, Inc. 303-906-3150 ... more

Robert McGuire answered:

The Fairways at Green Valley Ranch seem to be a good buy at this time. GVR is a great community that i lived in for 8 years starting in 2001. It is a quiet, diverse golf course community that is just 10 minutes from Park Hill in Denver. I would be glad to talk to you more about the new 55 and older community there. The best idea would be to meet me there and I can represent you as you check out the options to see who wel it will work for you in your particular situation. The link to the Fairways community is here - . I am experienced in the purchase of new homes at GVR before and purchased a new home from them myself as well.
