In the summer, it's safe to say that people are not thinking about getting ready to heat their homes in the colder months soon to come. We New Englanders tend to like to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and though the seasons change every few months, we tend to live and enjoy the season we are in, especially those warm summer days and cool summer nights. Thinking ahead to the next season, especially winter while in the summer, is usually not top of mind. However, when you own a home, you should think about a few things in the summer to prepare for winter. One of which is to have your furnace or boiler that heats your house cleaned and serviced. Those heating with wood and pellets should have their stoves and chimneys cleaned as well. It is recommended to have your burners...

It's hard to separate successful companies from their brands. For example, both Coca-Cola and Pepsi sell carbonated drinks.

What Are the Benefits of a 20% Down Payment? If you’re thinking of buying a home this year, you may be wondering how much money you need to come up with for your down payment. Many people may think it’s 20% of the loan to secure a mortgage. While there are plenty of lower down payment options available for qualified buyers who don’t want to put 20% down, it’s important to understand how a larger down payment can have great benefits too. The truth is, there are many programs available that allow you to put down as little as 3.5%, which can be a huge benefit to those who want to purchase a home sooner rather than later. Those who have served our country may also qualify for a Veterans Affairs Home Loan (VA) and may not need a down payment. These programs have really cut down the savings t...

(Evolve Bank & Trust)  Today is a new Federal Holiday, Juneteenth, so there are no economic data to report; however, the Markets are still open.  Stocks are Down this morning, based on 2 events.  The first event is the Quadruple Witching, which Portfolio Managers reposition their portfolios, as we approach another quarter.  Also, there were some hawkish comments by St Louis Fed Bullard, which he stated that the Fed may raise rates as soon as next year (much earlier than expected).  We had some really big swings in both the MBS and 10 year Treasuries this morning, which last all but 10 minutes.  MBS opened a little higher than yesterday's close, but it had a quick drop of about 25bps.  Almost as quick, it rebounded.  As of creating this report, it was Unchanged levels.  So, ...

Have any of you noticed a rapid decline in battery life?  No, it’s not the phone or the battery it’s us.  If you are like me we are doing more virtual showing than ever before.  With this market being so hot and me sitting in The Villages, Florida and 75% of my buyers are somewhere else we have no choice, do a FaceTime, Zoom or WhatsApp if they like it race home or to your office and write an offer.  I noticed my battery dying earlier in the day, what’s up with that?  Turns out when we FaceTime, Zoom or go video on WhatsApp it really kicks our battery so we need to be better prepared.  In my world when home working I charge, when in my car I charge, when I am in my golf cart I charge, yes, my golf cart has a place to charge a phone, I always have a battery stick or two somewhere close. ...

This week the median price in Aurora, Co. 80017 is $425,000 with the market action index hovering around 100.  Price per square foot is $216 and average days on market is now at 6 days.  Inventory is only 12 homes right now.  Rents are are median about $2450 in the area.  Inventory is sufficiently low to keep us in the Seller Market zone. Looking to put your home on the market call me to find out about my marketing plan and how my last listing had 9 contract in 72 hours and sold $40,000 over list price.
