It's simply delicious! Seriously. I was concerned when I had my daughter that I shouldn't ever give her water from the tap but I did a lot of research on line and it says that Denver has some of the cleanest water in the nation. It's no surprise since we live in the Rocky Mountains, which is the source for some of the cleanest and refreshing water in the world! ... more

The home buying process can be long and stressful and right now its war in the market. Good properties are gone the same day they come on the market. So a good agent will know those properties and find you them either before they hit the market or immediately after. Our buyers services are free to the buyers and we get paid from the sellers. So why not use an agent. We get access to homes that you do not and our information is the most accurate. You really need an agent that knows the specific area well. I would be happy to show you why we are very good at our jobs. Good luck, fee free to call, email or check out our site. Free of charge and no pressure. 3035894591 ... more

That's an interesting question and I think it's different for everyone. Economically speaking I don't think it's smart to buy when interest rates are high and renting may be cheaper. It also may not be a good idea to buy when there is ton of inventory. That shows prices falling. The opposite could be true for a good time to buy. People have to buy though and they need to get into homes so emotion plays into it. You just have to think and get the right advice before you pull the trigger. Good luck hope that helps. Call or email me if you want to chat further. I love these questions. ... more

Call me... I will have two listings later this spring coming on the market in GVR. Buying is by far the smartest method in Denver. Rents are astronomical and mortgage payments with the still historical rates are very much in your favor. Let's talk.

Hi Tim,

You will have to wait 3 years until you can qualify to purchase another home. That is for FHA. Not 100% sure for conventional loan.

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

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.

Yes had a great experience. Make sure you use a broker though to ensure your interests are the priority and not the builders. Some brokers may even be able to negotiate a better purchase price or free upgrades. ... more

James Ponzi answered:
Hi Bob,
Material defects must be disclosed if known by the seller of the agent. If you have proof the agent knew about the leak, you should ask them to address it. Not knowing the situation, I can't say for sure, but the agent may have thought it was fixed if they hired someone to fix it. It would be best to address it with the agent and see if they will take care of you before escalating the situation. ... more

Michael Mahoney answered:
Yes it does but there will be a compromise in there somewhere. For instance it may be on one of the streets farther from Broadway like Fox or Galapago, or need some work. In any event supply has been so limited you will need to be ready to go, and be right on it when it comes up. Hopefully your agent is on it, and familiar with the neighborhood. It some cases they may even be able to find you some properties before they hit the market. ;) ... more

This property is presently owned by the bank. They are accepting offers and have it listed at the price of $179,900. I'd be glad to show you the unit and help you to put in an offer if you are interested.

Dan Tabit answered:
Ask your lender if you can do pre-paid MI. This is more cash up front, which you may not have, but it is a one time fee that you never have to worry about getting rid of. Depending on your upgrades and the market coming back favorably is uncertain. The rules the lender has in place to drop it may require you to have 25% equity before they are required from stopping the monthly MI.
You can read over the paperwork from the lender, or ask them for the rules; they would be your best source for the most reliable information.

Absolutely! Make an extra payment towards your principal, if you want to pay off your loan quicker.

Ron Thomas answered:
These are questions for your Title Company and your Lender:
We cannot possible answer them; but I'll try.

I doubt that any Bank will go 60 days on the first payment; I would bet that you would have to beg for 35-40 days, and base your request on when you get paid. Understand that no matter when it is due, you will be paying interest on it, increasing your Vig.
Your Lender should have given you your GFE, which should show everything. They must, BY LAW!

And your Title Company should have given you your HUD1, which shows everything else. You may ask your Escrow Officer to sit down and explain everything to you: They do that.

Note: If you CLOSE in January, you will be pre-paying 6 month's of Taxes, whereas, February drops to 5 month's worth.
