“After four months of frustration and struggling with another company I turned my property over to Tim Emery at Stix and Stones. He had the property rented in less than 24 hours for a higher price than expected. They are very prompt and very professional. I highly recommend them.” – Eric L.

Yes! Yes! Yes! can I say Yes again. Just last Saturday we listed a property for rent. We raised the rent $175 per month. We received 20 calls on the property by Monday morning and rented it to the second showing.
Properties like this are going fast. Many people can’t buy new homes because of lender restrictions or situations they got into because of the economy over the last 4 years, so they are forced to rent. Good news if your an owner!
One of the biggest headaches a landlord has is dealing with tenants. When personal feelings get in the way it’s hard to treat your rentals as a business. As professional property managers we do that for you. Please give us a call and let us know how we can help you.

Well, everyone is now wondering just how the summer real estate market will do in the Denver Metro Area. Why you might ask? It’s the expiration of the 1st time home buyer and repeat home buyer credits!
Just what effect those tax credit had on the market the 1st half of the year will not be known until July because most closings that were recorded in June could have been impacted by the tax credit’s stimulating effect. July should be more representative of the non-credit market as it represents a larger percentage of properties that went under contract in May, which was after the credits expired. In talking to my fellow real estate agents and looking at our business it seems like we might me in for a slow summer but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Now to the market stats themselves. Total listings of homes and condos in the metro area increased a modest 761 units to 23,450 or about 3.4%. Total listings under contract was virtually unchanged at 3,885. The total number of sold properties decreased in the month to 4,046, a decreased of 319 units from May and the total days on market for the Denver Metro Area increased from 76 days to 82 days which is representative of the increase in total inventory of listings.
If you’re thinking of selling your home this summer, you really need a knowledgeable and aggressive agent more than ever before as it’s likely that we could see a real estate slow down in the near future. If you want to keep track of what’s selling in your neighborhood, you can signup for our free Market Snapshot Report that will allow you to keep track of your local market and see the detail of all the homes currently for sale or that have sold in the last 3 months. Check it out…it’s an extremely valuable resource.
Keep those fingers crossed….it may get a little rocky this summer! Look for mortgage rates to continue to drop however so there is hope out there.
