Ready to Buy? Pre-Approval is your first step to success!

by Christa Marsh

It's that time of year! More homes are coming on the market each week and as expected it's another year of low inventory (though it's slightly better) and lots of Buyers!

Our team's last listing received 13 offers and our last Buyer won over 12 other offers.

There are a number of strategies that help us help our Buyers get under contract fast. But, it's never without a written and verbal Pre-Approval from a reputable, preferably local, Lender. Pre-Approval should always be your first step!

Freddie Mac describes the ‘4 Cs’ that help determine the amount you will be qualified to borrow:

Capacity: Your current and future ability to make your payments
Capital or cash reserves: The money, savings, and investments you have that can be sold quickly for cash
Collateral: The home, or type of home, that you would like to purchase
Credit: Your history of paying bills and other debts on time

Getting pre-approved is one of many steps that will show home sellers that you are serious about buying, and it speeds up the process once your offer has been accepted.

Bottom Line

Many potential home buyers overestimate the down payment and credit scores needed to qualify for a mortgage today. If you are ready and willing to buy, you may be pleasantly surprised at your ability to do so.

Great team work and shared mutual trust made this Sell and Buy a possibility for my clients. These are great past clients of mine and they’ve had the gift of market timing as they’ve grossed  thousands with each move up…. Maybe you’ll stay longer in your new home! #BringingYouColorado

JUST SOLD!

44 JJ KELLY RD. IN LYONS

It really was an honor to have been able to represent the Trustee on this Estate Sale. There’s so much more than just the real estate transaction that goes into being entrusted as a loved one's personal representative. Emotions are raw and decisions needs to be made when all you’d rather be doing is grieving and making sense of a loss of a friend or love one.

I’m so happy to have been of value and made the connection I did with my client. Thank You… #BringingYouColorado

Motivational Monday: Embrace the fearless child inside!

by Cory Dudley

Meet 8-year-old Sky. She's from Japan and came to LA to skate and surf :)

She's a self-taught little ripper. She goes big, she's brave, and she skates with the boys cause it pushes her limits.

Not only does Sky put a smile on your face. She's a reminder to follow your dreams- without fear of failure or judgment- to push your limits, fall, and get back up with a smile and know you're better than where you started!

Happy Monday! May this week bring joy and success!

Rocky Mountain National Park Series: Native Fish Populations

by Christa Marsh

Like many waters in the United States, stocking of non-native fish species was common in the late 1800's. And continues in many regions still. However, these non-native species, stocked for sport and food, can alter aquatic landscapes drastically and potentially extirpate native species altogether. In 1936, the National Park Service gave its first formal guidance to discourage non-native stocking and encourage stocking of native fish in Rocky Mountain National Park. Stocking stopped but not before 20 million fish had been stocked in the park's waters between 1886 and 1968. At this time, nearly all of the waters were inhabited by non-natives.

Fish known to native to the area now known as Rocky Mountain National Park are cutthroat trout, suckers and sculpins. Historically, these fish were only found in the lower reaches as waterfalls and cascades served as migration barriers. Due to the cold water temperatures, it is thought that many of the park's waters were originally fishless.

With the assistance of 17 native trout reclamation projects, Rocky's native fish have continued to be restored and many non-natives have been removed. The Colorado River cutthroat trout and the Greenback cutthroat trout are two species of cutthroat native to RMNP waters.

Information about fishing opportunities in Rocky can be found on the park's Fishing page.

Happy Fishing
