Silver Creek Home for SaleThis home was completed by Meritage in 2012, so its like new without the wait! Everything about this home is ready for the new homeowners to move in and start enjoying life. The home was built with energy efficiency in mind. The floorplan is gracious in size and design, including a finished basement! Location for this home cannot be beat within walking distance to restaurants, the grocery store, rec center and Lafayette library.

When Meritage constructed this home they had a goal of creating an energy efficient home. Through construction they had a third party measure the efficiency of the construction using a HERS rating. This is a system for scoring the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) to measure a home’s energy efficiency in relation to the HERS Reference Home, which is represented by a score of 100 on the HERS Index. This home received a 61. Considering that the lower the number the better the score, this is a great rating! For example, the typical home scores 100 so this home is more efficient than approximately 40% of the homes available on the market.

Silver Creek Home for SaleIn addition to being a very energy efficient home, it is also gracious in its size, layout and finishes. For starters the home has almost 3,300 sq ft of finished living space! Yes, indeed that does mean that the home has a finished basement! That is an expensive project that the new homeowner has completed for them. This space includes and extra bedroom and bathroom.

Upstairs there is a landing area or a loft, plus three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has a 5 piece bathroom and includes a private sitting area, which is being used by the current homeowners as an office. This office has mountain views!

On the main floor you are greeted by wide plank walnut floors that are stained a warm, rich brown (not blonde!). The living room is open to the dining room and kitchen offering a great space for entertaining. The kitchen has gorgeous espresso colored cabinets with granite countertops. All the appliances are stainless steel. So as you can imagine this is an elegant space to cook and prepare meals. Out the back door there is a poured concrete patio which extends the entertaining space and includes mountain views!

Not only is this home gracious inside, but the new homeowners will find the location to be very walkable with great amenities all around! For starters, the Rothman Open Space Trail surrounding this community that will take the new homeowners on long hikes and bike rides through the countryside. These trails even connect to the Bob Burger Rec Center, and the Great Bark Dog Park. Within walking distance of the home are many restaurants and even a grocery store for the convenience of the new homeowners. In this same area the Lafayette Library can be found which is also easily accessible without a car.

This home has so many amenities that we don’t expect it to last on the market for long! Please give Leanne a call at 720-465-7005 for more information or to schedule a showing.

Indian Peaks March 2017 Real Estate Update

 Indian Peaks March 2017 Real Estate Update

This month throughout Indian Peaks we have seen the average price jump due to a higher priced sale in Eagle’s Nest. The median price is hovering around $569,000 which is a 5% increase since the beginning of the year.

For the past two months the average price per square foot has been at $225 in February and $218 in March. This is very strong compared to the dip that was taken throughout the fall and winter months when from July through December the average was only $184. We had been discussing the effect that the election had on prices through those months and now we can see that the Buyers are back with the spring time.

It’s interesting to note that the market through the fall months was at 0.98, meaning it would take less than one month for market demand to absorb all inventory if market conditions stayed the same and no more inventory came to the market. Since the beginning of the year the absorption rate has dipped a bit to 0.8 months of inventory, which is very similar but shows the increased demand (like the price per square foot) but in a different format.

For specific details about what your home is worth in this market, please contact me directly at 720-465-7005 or email me using the contact form on this page. Even if you are not thinking of selling for a year or two but would appreciate a market snapshot specific to your home, I’m available with no obligation. Looking forward to your call!

Blue Heron March 2017 Real Estate Update

Blue Heron March 2017 Real Estate Update

More great activity in Blue Heron – two homes quickly came on the market and found buyers quickly.  2528 Cowley was listed last fall and didn’t find a buyer but this spring, listed at $809,950 ($154/sf), a buyer snatched up this 6 bedroom, 4 bath home quickly at full price.  The other under contract home is 2527 Columbine Circle, listed for $899,000 ($177/sf) and had 3 offers within the first few days on the market.  However, this is a fickle market and many deals have fall apart, often due to the urgency buyers feel to new listings.  After a month on the market, this lovely home on a half acre lot, is under contract and set to close soon.

1767 Casey Court reduced the price to $1.095M but is now withdrawn from the market.
This leaves one last, beautiful home that is still available.  2544 Cowley Drive is listed for $859,900 ($173/sf) has terrific curb appeal and a main floor master.  The basement is unfinished but could easily be completed to add recreation room or another bedroom and bathroom.  Layout is great with the master on the main level with a 5-piece bathroom and fireplace in the room and then up the stairs leads to a landing that connects to the two large bedrooms that share a jack and jill bathroom.  To see photos or get more information visit or you can contact Libby Boyd for a private showing.

18 Month Checklist to Prepare Your Home For Sale

18 Month Checklist to Prepare Your Home For Sale

Selling your home has more work than you probably thought it does. But don’t worry, that’s why we’re here. Here is an 18 month checklist to prepare your home for sale. This is a list of items that need to get done when selling your home. Priorities the tasks in most demand for you and your home. One person may need more work in the kitchen and another on the exterior. Try to get the big projects done and out of the way first. That way towards the end when you’re probably running around crazy, you’ll only have the small tasks left to get done.


The exterior is the first thing that potential buyers see. You’ve gotta make sure your house is looking its best to be able to grab the buyers eye right away.

1. Curb Appeal

  • checklist to prepare your homeMake sure the front door, doorbell, welcome mat, mailbox, lighting, and address numbers are in good condition.
  • The siding and windows might need power washing.
  • Clean outdoor furniture.
  • Mow, water and fertilize the lawn. If there are dead patches, fill them in with some grass seed.
  • Trim shrubs, bushes, and tress along with raking the leaves.
  • Sweep the sidewalk, driveway, porches, and patios.
  • Place seasonable appropriate decorations and flowers.
  • Put away any toys and tools.
  • Clean up pet droppings.
  • checklist to prepare your homeClean the gutters and downspouts.

3. Updates and Repairs

  • Repair cracks in the driveway and sidewalks along with removing stains.
  • Make sure the roof is in good condition, and make repairs where needed.

2. Paint

  • checklist to prepare your homeMake sure the paint is fresh, this includes the trim, doors, shutters, and fences.
  • If the whole house doesn’t need to be painted, make touch ups where needed.

Take a good look at the exterior. Does it look appealing to you? Does everything look like it has a place. Do items look neatly arranged?


The interior is very important because this is where the buyer will start imagining themselves living in your house. Anything that can be tidied up or cleaned, do it. Make the inside as presentable as possible.

1. Clean / Dust

  • checklist to prepare your homeClean everything. Items in your house are going to require different equipment to properly clean. Make sure you know what goes with what.
  • Dust everywhere. Get a good duster, because chances are that dust has accumulated in multiple spots that are going to need a good dusting.
  • Make sure to dust the light fixtures and fans.
  • Get rid of all dust bunnies.

2. Declutter and Depersonalize

  • Remove any items that are not needed for decor or for use.
  • checklist to prepare your homeRemove unneeded appliances, toys, magazines, and pet items.
  • Start packing up all these items. Put them in boxes and store them.
  • Remove all family photos and personal collections.
  • Remove or hid your medications.
  • Secure your valuable items in a safe, including cash, jewelry, or anything you wouldn’t want to go missing.

4. Furniture Placement

  • Rearrange the furniture to maximize space.
  • Make the furniture look appealing to an outsider.
  • Remove any excess and over-sized furniture.

6. Fireplace

  • Clean the fireplace out.
  • Remove smoke stains from the wall and mantle.
  • Put new firewood in.
  • Make sure the screen is in good shape.
  • Clean the hearth

5. Lighting

  • Replace all burned out light bulbs.
  • Dust any light fixtures.

8. Kitchen 

  • Determine if the kitchen machines – blenders, canisters, toaster, etc. – are needed to be on the counter tops. Chances are, they don’t. They will just cause more clutter and make the kitchen look smaller.
  • checklist to prepare your homeMake it sparkle. Clean the sinks, appliances you keep out, and counter tops.
  • Make sure your hardware works, fix leaky faucets or damaged appliances.
  • Replace any knobs that are falling off or rusting.
  • New hardware can make the kitchen look 100-times better. This may not be needed, but keep it in mind.
  • For ceramic tile, scrub all the grout or stain it if it’s beyond cleaning.
  • Sweep, mop, and wax the floors.
  • Clean and organize the pantry, cabinets, and drawers.
  • Hang fresh towels.

  • Keep toilet seat lids closed at all times
  • Hang fresh towels.

10. Closets

  • checklist to prepare your homePack away anything and everything you aren’t going to use in the next few months. You want to show off your closet space and you can’t do that when it’s filled with all your stuff.

  • Does your home smell nice?
  • Bake cookies or put out air fresheners that don’t have too strong of a smell.
  • Open windows to let fresh air in.
  • Refrain from smoking in the house.
  • Make sure the vents are clean and dusted.

12. Flooring

  • Sweep, mop, and/or wax hardwood flooring.

checklist to prepare your home14. Paint

  • Try to stay away from freshly painting your whole indoor house.
  • Touch up spots where needed.
  • Add drywall to sections where needed.

Crestview Superior CO

Crestview Superior CO

crestview superiorThe Crestview neighborhood is a small part of the greater Rock Creek subdivision in the town of Superior Colorado. This neighborhood has decently sized homes. Most of the homes you will see have a fairly large pathway to the front door. These pathways are personalized with lights, arches, stairs, and gardens. It’s quite fun to drive around and see what style the homeowners have decided to go with.

You can tell the Crestview neighborhood is located in Superior because of all the sidewalks that are dispersed throughout. Superior residents love their outdoor pathways and take advantage of them. People will be outside constantly walking their dogs or with their friends and family. The builders of the neighborhood knew this, so they made sure there were plenty of trashcans and doggy help posts. The residents love their neighborhood, so they keep it clean!

Most of the sidewalks throughout the neighborhood are covered in large trees and will have a bench along it every now and then. The trees provide a shaded walk for those hot summer days. There are a couple open fields near the neighborhood that are great for playing sports with your family or friends.

If you are looking at buying or selling a home in Crestview Superior Colorado, contact us! We have multiple REALTORS that you can choose from to make sure they fit your needs.
