    Any advice given may or may not match the objective of the person asking when it comes to buying a home. That includes his Realtor to some extent.

    1 word.... Nope. We're big boys and girls and have to make our decisions. Jacob will make his decision at some point.

    You have to figure out what you want... your commute, 1 or 2 car garage, SE Aurora, Bennett, 225 and Colfax, Englewood, etc.... you'll make your own decisions and I doubt it's based on what those of us on this forum chime in about..... It's fun to get roundhouse ideas relative to Real Estate, but no person here can relate to any individual's specifics.

    Fortunately, there's no lack of opinions and there is no "expertise" into someone's preferences into anything. You get options and then you simply choose. Game over.

    Let the advice & opinions keep coming in, but I figure Jacob will make his own decision on his own time.... That could be to buy quickly or to hold out and find what he wants...

    Some people just shop and never buy because that's what they want.... Not saying that's the case here, but it does happen. It doesn't matter because shopping is free. (for most people)

    I'd venture a guess that I've bought and sold more residential Real Estate in the Denver Metro area than anyone on this forum. That means absolutely nothing in terms of giving any advice toward priorities to someone buying a house. The buyer must always figure that out for themselves. I can chime in about other crap though..... I know tacotoy can too....

    Good luck Jacob

    It came a nice freezing rain this morning just enough to completely cover out lot. I spent the day testing all the different types of golf car to determine which one did the best doughnuts. The clear winner was the electric standard cart.

    The boss wouldnít let me take one of the nice new fancy carts with the speed codes loaded out. I think they would have won.

    Nephew and niece thing arent getting the bebe. Apparently the girls parents got involved and talked her into keeping it. I hope it works out well for the bebe. Adoption of this kind is pretty much a rollercoaster ride for the ones trying to adopt.

    Damn, that is tough. Best wishes for your niece and nephew, they sound like loving parents to be

    Yeah, they will end up with a bebe one way or another. They have spent lots of money with fertility doctors etc and are still doing that but so far, nothing can be found wrong with either of them. Maybe they are just doing it wrong, hellifiknow.

    Itís a tough ride. Our kids went through this a few times. The little girl they got is exactly the right one they were supposed to get. But itís hard... harder than anyone can imagine.

    When I worked at DIA during it's construction, all the contracting companies had golf carts out there. Ours was definitely one of the fastest. We'd go do donuts on the snow-pack on the tarmac.

    I know some folks will cringe at this, but it just wasn't God's plan. I hope parenthood is in His plan for them and they receive that blessing soon.

    Long night of kid basketball.... got home at almost 10:00. Won the 1st game easily; lost the 2nd one in a tight game against their nemesis.

    Trey went to the middle school practice and said it was a joke. There are about 100 kids for a couple of teams, many of whom have probably never touched a basketball. I agreed with him when he said it was probably not a good use of his time.

    Need a little unwind time

    Waking up at 4:30 is better than waking up at 2:30.

    they probably thought that there would be some kind of crazy bidding war.... things seem kinda finicky right now after the holidays.

    I just saw a house in my neighborhood get listed for about 50k more than the previous sale of a similar quality and floorplan a few months ago. within 2 days they had dropped the price 6k, but another house just was sold 2 weeks ago for 18k over their asking....

    I was serious about parking a truck out front on jack stands or blocks if you're CC.... drive the value down lol

    I'm reserved but optimistic. It's not really "family move in ready" for the upscale white suburbians because it's dirty and needs a lot of cosmetic work. Apparently there's already like 6 other offers though. My agent did share a VM from their agent who said that the seller was impressed I wanted to fix it up on my own etc so that could be a good sign but who knows
