  • 2 apples- peeled, cored and diced
  • 8 ounces of raspberries
  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fruit preserves, any flavor

5 Tips to Expedite the Sell of your Home

5 Tips to Expedite the Sell of your Home

  1. Setting the price of your home– To insure you get top dollar for your property take a look at recent home sales in your neighborhood, this will keep you from pricing to high or low.  It is also a good idea to have your house appraised prior to placing it on the market.
  2. Deciding on an agent– It is important to establish what you are looking for in an agent when selling your home.  It is best to be with someone who tailors a plan dedicated to your family’s unique situation and needs.  Meet with a couple agents and pick the one who best meets your requirements.
  3. Curb Appeal- It is said that “you only get one chance to make a first impression”. This defiantly applies to the sale of your home. Making sure the exterior of your house is appealable to possible buyers is very important and can be a deal breaker.Tips:
    • -Plant a flowerbed
    • -Make sure lawn is well kept and mowed
    • -Paint your front door
  4.  No longer your home– When an interested home buyer is viewing your house they want to be able to picture it as their own.  This means de-personalizing your house by removing family photos, keepsakes, and unnecessary knick knacks.
  5. Know when to upgrade- Don’t waste your time and money on costly home repairs and upgrades.  Determine what upgrades will expedite the sale of your home.   The kitchen is one of the most important selling components of any home and can be a major deal breaker if it is not up to expectations.

The Denver real estate market is heading into fall very strong.  A reported 2,500 homes came to the market this past summer.  The market is moving towards equilibrium of homes being bought and sold boosting local economy.  But with a boost in the market we are also seeing a rise in housing prices.  According to the Metrolist the average price of a Denver Metro home was $310,000.

The Denver Post reported in August that there was a 43% decrease in foreclosures from July, causing sales from discounted property to diminish.
