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.

I don't understand your question. Please clarify and I will be glad to help. I lived in Green Valley Ranch for 8 years and loved it. I have been selling homes there for years. If you have questions about GVR in particular let me know.

You might want to check Craig's list. The rental market here in Denver is off the rails.
Good Luck .

My suggestion is to always work with a buyer's agent. Why not have a professional on your side, especially when the seller pays the commission.

However, if you have already registered yourself as an unrepresented buyer with the builder, the builder may refuse to pay a co-op.

Who is the builder in question? I could contact them and see what I can find out about this particular model and how they would address the issue of you working with an agent.

Best of luck,

John Keene

You'd be surprised for what you might be able to qualify. There are some variables but what you've mentioned above may be something you can work through. The worst case would be that you may need some guidance in building up your score. Most lenders will lend to you once you've been two years away from the bankruptcy. We have a program that helps people build their credit with no cost or obligation. We'd love to show you some things to make yourself eligible to take advantage of the market we are in.
Wishing you well.

I think if you drive the area and ask the people living over there this question and also check with the local police dept you will be able to answer this question. Things can happen in ANY community so check on the neighborhood before you move anywhere.

Green Valley Ranch has gone through a lot of turmoil in the past few years with their property values declining heavily due to a lot of foreclosures, short sales and distressed sales. I would say that if you are planning to live there for a long period of time (at least more than 5-7 years) then you will have a good investment. You will probably pay a lot premium to live on the golf course. However, in the long run having a home on the golf course should add a lot of value to your home.

If you have any questions about Green Valley Ranch or buying new homes, feel free to contact me! You can go to my website to read about buying a new home:

I believe that, once the foreclosure situation stabalizes in that area, it will do OK. Property values throughtout GVR have not done well over the past few years, but the area is pretyy saturated with a bunch of foreclosures.
On the golf course question, owning on a golf course does not always assure success and appreciation. It depends on the course, the designer, the area of town, and other real estate related issues.
I can send you comps for the area, list vs. sale price, days on market, etc. which might give you an idea about the current market, but not necessarily where the market might be headed.

Is your home listed with a Realtor?
Did your Realtor provide you with a CMA?
How many homes, like yours, have sold since your home was listed?
How many homes have come onto the market in the last 120 days, comparable to yours, and have sold?

Please report back...or discuss with your Realtor.`

Jim Walker answered:
Buyers have been culturally immersed in the popular myth that foreclosed properties are bargains. Facts and logic will not dissuade them. Buyers who hold this belief will see a foreclosed property that is competing with yours that is priced $10,000 less because of its inferior condition. The buyer will under-estimate the amount and cost of work that it will entail to bring the property up to a decent level. The buyer will choose the "cheaper" property that is $10,000 less but needs $20,000 of remedial work.

It is fair for you to hold for more, but the buyers are not thinking logically.
