Homes for Heroes

We all have a cause that is dear to us. Ours is a program call “Homes for Heroes.” I received a call from a realtor in Denver. She asked me if I was interested in participating with this program by working with a man that was trying to sell his property here in Summit County. She did not want anything in return but simply wanted to make sure this client was taken care of and would receive all the benefits that I had to offer as a real estate agent. I knew immediately I needed to be a part of this so I joined. Our heroes are extraordinary people and they deserve all that we can offer. I can’t wait to meet my next client!

Since 2009, Homes for Heroes, Inc., has helped over 23,000 heroes save over $37 million on their real estate transactions, sold over $4 billion in real estate to heroes, actively partnered with 2,200 like-minded real estate and mortgage professionals who’ve joined in the mission, and donated over $500,000 to heroes in need through the Homes for Heroes Foundation.

Homes for Heroes, Inc. is the largest nationwide network of affiliate real estate, mortgage, and local business specialists; committed to providing easy ways for heroes to save on a home. Shortly after 9/11, Homes for Heroes, Inc. was established to give back to firefighters, EMS, law enforcement, military (active, reserves & veterans), healthcare professionals and teachers for all they do.


Sellers prepare to sell!

Now we enter in to the time of year when spring break is over, the skiers have gone home, and town is quiet. All the home owners have received their revenue from the winter season or have finished up a winter with their families. We have been telling you that our inventory is low and now we are seeing new listings come on the market everyday. If you are getting ready to list your home, it is a good idea to talk with your realtor, Roger and Teresa Moen (of course) prior to that time. We can give you knowledgable tips on how to prepare your home to sell. Sometimes it is a matter of a paint color, the staging of furniture or removing some personal items. It doesn’t always need to be costly. These things sound small but some people have vision for their own colors and furniture and others do not. I remember when my mom sold her home she felt that the wood paneling was a huge selling feature but she didn’t realize that in the 70’s it was. She was unaware of what a buyer was looking for today.
Another good idea is to have a home inspector come to your home and he will write up a report on what needs repairing. Many times sellers are unaware. This helps you in two ways. You will not be blindsided by some major repair such as a roof issue for example and you have the option to remedy whatever your home needs. This also shows the potential buyers that you were a responsible homeowner and they feel more comfortable in their purchase. It also helps you, the seller to substantiate your asking price.
So, I have more, call me let’s talk!!

What’s happening with the Breckenridge condo market?

Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 12.14.36 PM

Condo sales in Breckenridge have slowed down in 2016. The reason for this is a low inventory. The demand is still high.This is the lowest the inventory has been since 1998 and that is the farthest back I can go with my available data. So what we do have listed is selling in a matter of days if it is priced right. This graph shows that even though the number of sales are down, if you want to purchase an investment property, Breckenridge has the lion’s share of the county market. This is also why investors purchase in Breckenridge.
