Hello chimonger,

Pueblo as a community embraces the use of solar power, for the most part. If you have a specific property in mind for switching over to solar, please contact me with the details and I will be happy to help you try to obtain further answers to your questions. As for chemical industrial, what specifically are you referring to please and which area are you referring to? Thank you for your questions and I hope to have the opportunity to speak with you.

You can't assume much and be sure. I have seen public information listed that is just not correct and maybe never was correct. I have seen agents list homes as 5 bedrooms but it may only have a 3 bedroom septic system. Sometimes upgrades happen, and are permitted, but the county records don't get updated, so don't assume anything. Ask for permits and check with the county records offices to see what the true story is. Often an agent will go through a house and count bedrooms and not check any deeper to see if they are all suppose to be bedrooms. ... more

B.J. Deal answered:

You may write an offer and present to the listing agent. Unfortuntely, if this is a foreclosure, the bank does not have to review the offer or accept it, if they already have one in process. Five minutes can make a difference.

You might want to keep in touch with the listing agent to make sure that the offer is proceding with no problems. If you have the time to wait, the house may be back on the market, if the prospective buyer does not get the loan or the bank does not like the terms.

In any case, the seller chooses whether or not to accept any offers on his/her home.

Hi Seg,

I'm assuming since the bank accepted an offer the property is either a short sale or an REO (bank owned). That being the case, the bank has the final say on which offer they accept. Of course, they are going to accept the highest and best offer because they are in the business of making money and minimizing their loss (if there is one). And yes, it is common for buyers to offer more than the asking price, especially if the asking price is below market value. It is not uncommon (though not necessary ethical) for agents to list properties below market price so they receive several offers and the bank can then chose the highest and best one. To avoid this problem in the future, have your agent do a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) on the property you are interested in before you go see it so you know the market value and if it is realistically priced and if it's in your price range. This way, you will also know what the best price is to offer for it.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

What is a PLSA? In our local market, most listed properties that are bank owned will close within 45 days or so of part because the bank will try to put a fairly tight limit on the closing date. They're trying to get rid of properties as quick as they can. ... more

You might be able to look it up on your county assessor's website and see who the owner is. It is a matter of public record. Even then, it might be difficult to track down the owners, as they're probably long gone, and unlisted in the phonebook. By now, it's quite possible that it may be owned by the bank. If you'd like the name or a Realtor in Pueblo, I'd be happy to refer you to someone.

First-time buyers who purchase a primary residence between 04/09/08 and 07/01/09 will be eligible for the $7,500 tax credit (or 10% of the purchase price, depending on which is the lesser of the two). You do not qualify for this credit, but you will likely qualify for standard tax deductions, which can be very welcome come tax time. ... more

Views are pretty easy to find in Pueblo, trees can be a challenge sometimes. Are you planning on putting the two houses next to each other? Dividing can be an issue because of water. In Colorado you need a min of 35+ acres to get a well permit. And dividing can be an issue if the property has already been divided. Feel free to contact me via my web site and we can get more detailed. ... more
