The market is so hot, IT doesn't need any help. But this could help those who are qualified for a loan but don't have a lot of cash so they have to ask the seller to pay their closing costs, and may be competing with much stronger offers. Right now, buyers who are barely to scrape together what it takes to get into a house, don't stand a chance. This could give them that little bit of help that they need. ... more

Hi Phung Nguyen,

It has to be disclosed on the HUD-1 Settlement Statement at the closing. The lender should be aware of this prior to closing so they can approve it also.

We're actually not supposed to discuss commission as an 'average', by law. I guess the powers-that-be don't want the public to get the idea that there is a standard fee, so you won't feel like you're stuck paying that amount, when maybe you could have actually paid less.

You should find agents that work in your area regularly and ask them individually what their fees are, and what service they provide for those fees.

Rick Janson answered:
Great question. Your qualification is based on a number of factors, one of which is your debt:equity ratio. Lenders look at your overall gross monthly income and your minimum monthly payments from your credit report. They add to that your mortgage: principal, interest, taxes and insurance (PITI).

With a lower interest rate, your PITI is lower, so your debt:equity looks better and/or you can qualify for a higher mortgage payment.

Does that make sense?

Hi Nina!

Did you mean Villa Park? I think you did, so I'll answer your question that way.

With the West Colfax redevelopment and the proximity to Sloan's, Villa Park is already seeing a good increase in values. Light Rail is scheduled to open any day there now and that always boosts the nearby home values as well. The rule of thumb I tell my clients looking for a good investment in Villa Park is to stay north of Lakewood Gulch Park. Let me know if you are interested in a detailed market analysis for that area, I'm happy to send that to you and go over any questions you might have.

There are Walmarts in Thornton. One is at 9901 Grant, the other is at 7101 E. 128th Ave. I hope that helps.

Hi Hspangler!

Cole (especially north Cole) is predicted to see a pretty substantial increase in home values in the next few years. Some analysis shows it might increase as much as 6-7% in the next year alone.

My personal recommendation is to try and get a property as close to the new light Rail station on 38th as possible to maximize your investment.

I specialize in North Denver neighborhoods and Cole/Whittier in particular. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or if you would like to see any homes. I'm passionate about this area and would be thrilled to help!

Do you have a specific townhome, area or development that you are considering? Are you looking for a home for yourself or considering an investment property to rent out? With some more specifics we can answer your question intelligently. All the best.

Kasha Songer answered:
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

This is a common scam! This has been going on for some time. Not sure how to combat it though other than contacting the site that is posting it and communicate with the seller.

Deanna Vermillion answered:
I am so sorry to hear about your bad experience. While it is true, that the Denver real estate market is HOT right now, there really is no reason that your Realtor wouldn't be able to respond to you in that long of a time frame. I have heard of this happening to a few people lately, an I think the agent is too overwhelmed with the busy market.

You can contact the managing broker, but Realtors are independent contractors, so the managing broker really has little leverage over the individual agent.

If you're happy with the company, however, I encourage you to see if the managing broker can assign you a new agent. However, it doesn't matter if you stay with the same company or not. What's important is that YOU are happy and feel as though you are receiving the treatment that you deserve, and are paying for.

A good Realtor should be able to get back with you at minimum within the same day, but optimally within a couple hours.

Good luck
