12 things I have learned about life in Colorado

 

I have now lived in the State of Colorado for almost 11 years now.  In light of all the new folks moving to this state, I thought I would share lessons I have learned.

 

  1. Spring has not arrived in March when the first warm day hits. Expect snow in May!
  2. If you consider yourself a biker of any sort; clip in, and expect to look like an idiot, fall unexpectedly, and generally feel stupid till you learn.
  3. Don’t drive through a snow drift. That stuff is like cement people!
  4. Speaking of driving, 4 wheel drive does not mean 4 wheel brake!
  5. If you want to keep your sanity, do NOT go skiing off I70 on a Saturday.
  6. Expect to be repeatedly beaten on the bike, and on the trail by women. Yes Men, get over it.  There are 3-4 women in my neighborhood alone that could beat down any of you.
  7. In fact no matter what you do, expect someone to do it better, and faster. I got passed on my motorcycle going down Lookout Mountain by a guy on a skateboard.  Case and Point…  Get over yourself, and have fun anyway!
  8. Mountain biking is not a Sunday stroll here. Lots of up, lots of down, and plenty of large rocks.  Technical means technical!  Brakes are a good idea…
  9. Speaking of rocks, do not attempt to dig in your yard. Not for a tree, not for a fence post….They call them the Rocky Mountains for a reason.  If you want to keep your manhood, please defer.
  10. Beer:  Know it, drink it, and evaluate it or feel like a poser.  And no, I have not acquired the taste yet, to my friend’s dismay!
  11. Be a bronco fan, or pretend if you have to.  At a Broncos game my 16 year old daughter had a 75+ year old man in her face because she was wearing a Niner jersey.  Scarred her for life 🙂
  12. People demand to be outdoors here. It’s not a fad, or a fashion statement like in some places.  Play hard, work hard, take risks.  Pretty much sums up this state.

Homes selling rapidly in Golden CO

While working with buyers in Golden, many have been challenged with how quickly homes have been selling.  Not only are homes selling quickly, but they are selling with multiple offers way above the asking price.  Some have questioned whether Golden is seeing a housing bubble.  If you look back a few year during the downturn, Golden was still doing quite well in comparison to the rest of Denver.  Because of the appeal of Golden, lots of people want to live here.  There is little to no chance for additional housing to be build in Golden, so as the demand rises, the supply is not getting much better.

For some perspective, in January, 2010 the real estate market was not doing well in most of the country, including Denver.  Yet, even then, listings stayed on the market an average of 58 days with a median list price of around 350k in Golden.  The average home stayed on the market less than two months!!  In January of 2015, listings stayed on the market an average of 7 days with a median list price of around 450k.  There are always a few homes that remain on the market for a while due to major challenges with the home or because it is in the high end (800k and up) of the market, so these stats may even be a bit misleading.  In most cases if a listing is in decent shape and priced appropriately in Golden area,  you have a matter of days to see it, put an offer in, and hope you can outbid your competition

In working with buyers, we have a proven strategy that has given us an edge as we have worked with buyers in Golden.  There are things you can do to position yourself as a standout buyer, even if you are not the highest bidder.  In many cases, our clients have won the home, even when they were not the highest offer.  For more info on how we put buyers in the best position to win, feel free to reach out to us at the Fox Group.  We would be happy to share with you what makes our buyers stand out!

Details and Pictures

I am really excited about this new listing in Wildhorse Ranch.  18987 W 57th Dr is a 4 bedroom 3 bath home plus a loft and office in a great neighborhood at the base of North Table Mountain.  If you are lookng for an opportunity to be a close to Golden, in a newer home (built in 2013) with options to hop right on a trail and get away from it all, then this is the house.  Wildhorse Ranch has a trailhead a block away, and has some great mountain views all around.  Further details of the home include wood floors, brand new granite kitchen with pantry and island, open floor plan, upstairs laundry, light and bright throughout, fresh paint, updated bathrooms, master suite with tub, shower and walk in closet, main level den, nice yard and much more.  This is one of those houses that will not last long.  Only 4 miles to downtown Golden with Golden schools and recreation, these homes are rare.  This is the first spruce model in this subdivision to be listed in 1 1/2 years!
