It is time for sweet delicious peaches on Colorado’s Western Slope!The peach harvest begins in late June and runs through the first of October. The most desirable Colorado peaches are Elberta, Haven, Polly, Reliance, Hale Haven and Ranger.  My personal favorite are the Hale peaches.  These are freestone which make them much easier to work with if you are jamming or simply sampling.Shopping for Colorado peaches in the Denver Metro Area can be challenging.  Luckily, my daughter, Erin Bates, lives in Grand Junction which means I can visit Erin and also go on the hunt for the perfect box of peaches.And while we are out, we always visit the many Palisade wineries.  One of our favorites is the Carlson Vineyards.  They have some of the yummiest wines.   I particularly love their Laughing Cat T...

   Automated Valuation of Your Home is NOT a True Price If you want to find the approximate value of your Grand Junction, Colorado home, an instant electronic valuation may get you relatively close.  But, if your goal is to price your home without leaving thousands of dollars on the table, and still stand up to a lender's appraisal, you will want someone qualified to view and walk through your property.You may have a real estate agent who can help you, but if not, the next option is to go to the internet.  There you can search your area, get a sense of what similar homes are listing for, and get a "ballpark" number.  This would be just a first step, without further investigation, you could easily be off by as much as tens of thousands of dollars.Then you see it...The FREE Instant Home E...

3490 Woodgate Drive grand Junction, Colorado 81506My Denver clients had made several trips to Grand Junction to view homes, but none of the homes they selected online to view interested them when they saw them in person.  One particular visit, the wife flew in for a quick day trip.  We looked at 6 homes and when I was taking her to the airport I checked the new listings.  This home on Woodgate Drive was immediately of interest but they required 24 hour notice so she flew back to Denver.  The next day I went to the home and took additional photos, described the layout, upgrades and condition.  I remarked to them on the phone "this is your home".  The wife couldn't come back for 3 weeks to view the home so we kept our fingers crossed it would be still available.  When the day came, she lo...
