Review from Happy Sellers in Aurora

“We decided to put our house on the market because we were outgrowing the one we were in. We carefully weighed the options with Marty’s help and put it on the market at what we felt like was a reasonable but also aggressive price.  Once we made the decision, Marty and his team quickly went into action to get pictures and get it on the market quickly.  We put it on the market on a Friday, had an open house on Saturday and Sunday, had around 25 showings by Wednesday and had an offer within $4,000 of our asking price by Thursday.  We were thrilled.  Marty and his team always made sure the showings worked for us and stayed in constant contact throughout the process.

“Four months later, we ended up selling our house due to a job transfer.  Our time frame was extremely tight due to how quickly we had to move.  Once again, Marty got it on the market quickly.  Due to an incredible selling market, we actually put it on the market for several thousand more than what we bought it for.  Once again, we had over 20 showings within a week and had an offer within $4,000 of our asking price eight days after putting it on the market.

“We sold two houses with Marty and only had our houses on the market a combined two weeks and we were very happy with the selling prices.  Marty was quick, responsive and aggressive in marketing our home.  I highly recommend Marty and the GoodFit team if you’re looking to sell your home, but only if you want it to sell quickly and at a price you’ll be happy with!” – Matt & Michelle R. 

Is it Cheaper to Buy or Rent in Denver?

These are good housing bubbles.

Trulia’s Winter 2013 Rent vs. Buy report is out. They use a fairly complex set of data to come up with their results (at least they seem complicated to this English major.) But what they reveal has got us excited: In Denver, Colorado, it is up to 53% cheaper to buy a home than to rent.

Yeah. 53%.

The percentages vary based on your tax bracket, what interest rate you can qualify for, and how long you plan to stay in your home, but most combinations still result in significant savings over renting. See the full report here.

So if you’re in the Denver Metro Area and are thinking of making the leap to home ownership, the numbers are saying it’s a good time. Mortgage interest rates can’t get much lower than this. True, there’s low inventory and you’ll need to really be on top of things to snag the place you want, but that’s what you’ve got us for! See what’s available in your price range and area here, and set up listing alerts to keep you on top of what becomes available each day. And call Marty to get started at 720-891-9000.
