Broomfield Restaurants: Buenos Tiempos

Buenos TiemposI had dinner, at Buenos Tiempos restaurant, for the 1st time, last week for my birthday, and I thought it was really good! Is it a fancy, new, modern place? No, not even close. But if you like being able to go out to dinner, and not worry about dressing up, or not knowing what the dishes on the menu are, this is definitely the place for you! They’re a family owned restaurant that’s been in Broomfield since 1986.

Is fall a good time to sell my home?

Do you live in Broomfield, CO? Then, yes. :) Okay, so that’s somewhat tongue in cheek but not entirely. I can make a pretty good case for why nearly any time of year might be a good time to sell, depending on market conditions and your expectations but fall 2014 could be the perfect time to sell your Broomfield home. Once upon a time there were much clearer selling seasons. The real estate meltdown, and current comeback, however changed a lot of things about the way home

I say this mostly due to current market conditions in Broomfield. The supply of homes for sale is still at an all time low. There are 176 detached family homes listed for sale right now. In July 2013 there were 346 homes for sale. In July 2011 at its most recent peak, 773 homes were available.

Let’s look at the numbers in the Broomfield neighborhoods:

For the time period from May 1 to July 31, 2014.

What do you mean by “priced right?”

money

I tell sellers all the time that if their house is in “good shape and priced right” it should sell quickly and for top dollar. But I bet you want to know what I mean by “priced right” – unfortunately sellers often take this to mean I want them to give their house away. But nothing could be further from the truth – I find that encouraging sellers to “give their house away” is bad for business.

Here is what I mean by priced right: the market is moving rapidly right now – the supply of homes for sale is low (I wonder when I’ll get to stop saying that!) but the number of buyers is high. This means multiple offers on nearly every home, and often it means the home sells for more than it was listed. If your home is priced generally around what the other homes are selling for in the neighborhood, it should sell quickly. That’s what I mean – pretty easy.

You can buy Judy Blume’s home

I LOVED Judy Blume novels when I was a kid. Absolutely devoured them! And now you too can buy her house on Lake Tashmoo in Vineyard Haven in Massachusetts. A mere $2.6 million it includes 4 beds/3 baths plus a guest wing – oh and a private beach. You really have to see the pictures; they’re amazing.

Happy Birthday!


Happy 4th Birthday to Stumpy!

Is the neighbors home under contract or not?

signs


Solved! The great mystery of why the neighbor’s house doesn’t have an “Under Contract” sign

Judging the number of times this topic comes up with friends, and others who find out I’m a real estate agent, there seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding whether or not the neighbor’s house is under contract, and why isn’t there some type of sign indicating that?
