MLS Access For Home Buyers

Updated on November 13, 2013

The Denver Metrolist Service (MLS) now allows direct MLS access for home buyers with the release of their new software system “Matrix”. Matrix is the new system recently released and is being used by local Real Estate Agents.

This system provides home buyers their own web portal which is updated within 15 minutes of a change to any listing on the MLS in their search parameters. The Buyers portal allows the Buyer to manage homes in their search parameters. They can “delete” a property, mark as a “possibility” or a “favorite” home on their personalized search screen.

When the status of a property changes, so does the Buyers web portal. For example, if a property is a new listing, comes back on the market, has a price decrease, etc. that is noted on the Buyers site.

Here is a screen shot of a sample portal page:

This technology is only available to Buyers when working with a Real Estate Agent.

If you are looking to buy a home in Castle Rock, Castle Pines, Parker, or Douglas County Colorado area, and would like to work with a Real Estate Agent who provides this service, please let me know. I would gladly show you the advantages you can have by monitoring and reviewing your own extremely accurate property searches.

Buy a larger home for minimal cost, Castle Pines Village Home Sales increase 47% in 2012

Updated on October 25, 2012

Have you been thinking about moving into a larger home in Castle Rock or Castle Pines You might want to buy a larger home for minimal cost, when you consider these facts:

Our current real estate market has been HOT for almost 2 years. It is very definitely a Sellers market. Most Sellers are surprised when they hear this news and the value of their homes. Typically they are not under water as the news media portrays. It is quite the contrary.  As inventory levels have dropped over the past 2 years and Buyers have entered the market place, prices have begun rising. Here is the data:

1)    New mortgage interest rates are at record lows for Buyers (approximately 4%).

2)    Denver metro home sales are up 19% between 3Q 2011 and 3Q 2012.

3)    Active inventory has decreased from 13,941 to 6,747 between 12/10 & 09/12.

4)    Under Contract/Pending has increased from 3,295 to 5,742 between 9/10 & 09/12.

5)    Sales of homes in Castle Pines Village priced $500k+ have increased 47% during the first 9  months of 2012 versus the first 9 months of 2011.

6)    Many people experienced a foreclosure or bankruptcy in 2006. Their 7 year credit waiting period will end in 2013. This may be a strong year for a surge of Buyers.

7)    Most homeowners are able to sell their property, discard their higher interest mortgages and purchase a larger home for about the same monthly payment.

Given the points above, it is a great time to “trade up” – Sell your current home and move into a larger home at minimal expense before the higher end properties rebound.

I have developed a personalized cost analysis matrix for my clients. I could develop a confidential scenario for your particular situation towards moving into a nicer home at no cost to you.  Call me to discuss your long term plans before this opportunity is lost.

Short Sales, Foreclosures and Banked Owned Real Estate in Castle Pines North, Castle Pines Village, Colorado

Updated on February 24, 2012

Real estate and homes for sale inventory is at record lows in Castle Pines North and Castle Pines Village, CO.  Many Buyers are still searching for the “home purchase deal” with Bank owned Short Sales and Foreclosure homes.  With inventory levels low the good homes may typically be for sale for less than a week, especially with foreclosures and bank owned properties.  If you are looking to buy a home in this market, here is the strategy that I would recommend.

First, get qualified with solid lender who is able to close your transaction.  There are many lenders in the market who will pre-qualify you, and not send your file to underwriting until you are ready to close.  I would recommend having underwriting review your entire loan application prior to submitting an offer,so there are no last minute mortgage surprises.  Avoid loan rejection a few days prior to close.

Secondly, understand your market, pricing, housing, the sub-divisions, and become as educated as you can.  A good real estate agent or broker can help you with your real estate education.  Take the time to find a qualified Realtor who understands construction, finance, negotiations, and is a an expert in the local market.  For example, a seasoned full time professional Realtor who knows Castle Rock, Castle Pines North and Castle Pines Village, CO can advise you more effectively on your home purchase than a “part time relative” who has a real estate license and does not understand current HUD, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, foreclosure, short sale,  and bank owned realty procedures.

Lastly, after you understand the Castle Rock and Castle Pines real estate markets and you know the value (or lack of value) of homes or houses for sale, make an offer to Buy Sell on a home that suits your needs at a purchase price that you know is a good value proposition.

In the years to come you will be happier with your decision to purchase your dream house.

Purchasing a home in Castle Rock, Castle Pines North and Castle Pines Village, Colorado can be very rewarding, when you take the time to make educated decisions.

If you would like help with your next home purchase, please contact me.  I am a local Real Estate Agent, Broker, Realtor, and Consultant in the Castle Rock, Castle Pines North, and Castle Pines Village, CO real estate market.

Homes for Sale in Castle Rock, Castle Pines North, and Castle Pines Village CO at record low levels

Updated on February 12, 2012

Last year at this time there were about 1,000 homes for sale.  Currently there are about 400.  Buyers are everywhere looking for a bargain.  Sellers think they are underwater. Both groups may be surprised.

Last year we lost about 50 homes for sale in Castle Rock, Castle Pines North, and Castle Pines Village per month from our inventory levels.  The trend continues at a strong pace inside of 2012, our slow period.  Buyers are looking for the bargain foreclosure home deals which have been drying up for the past 14 months.  They aren’t there, they are difficult to find, or you are competing against many other Buyer offers.

Prices have been rising and Buyers are now competing for those “great” deals.  For Sellers it is an excellent time to move on with your life and stop waiting.  Good homes at good prices are selling quickly.  In certain areas homes are under contract before the weekend is over.

2012 may be the year of a quick spike in prices.
