A condo/town house in Colorado
Hubby and I differ about our idea of home.
I bought my house in 1994. Hubby and I started dating shortly after and we married and have lived in this home since then. He pays his grandsons to mow the lawn and a cousin to shovel the snow. Hubby is not a handyman. He retired from work a few years back, and I have a few to go before I can do the same. It was my dream to own my own home, but not his. He would prefer to rent. He is tired of the repair bills mounting and yard maintenance so the idea of selling our home and renting one is beginning to appeal to him more and more, while the idea of paying rent for something I could own is frustrating to me.
Perhaps there is a welcome compromise.
While looking online the other day I came across Denver CO real estate and it hit me. Perhaps we could purchase a condo. Some condos come with yard maintenance and home maintenance built into the purchase price. They have beautiful grounds that are kept up nicely. As I searched around their site, I found an area where you can subscribe to listings and get the daily updates in your email. You can request your preferences and your area at Colorado Denver real estate. Colorado has been high on my list of places I would love to visit, but they have many homes listed and not just in Colorado, but list some other states as well. The listings are very competitive, and serviced by some of the best trained real estate agents. If you are looking to relocate this tool could prove invaluable as it provides you with all the information you need before you make your move such as the nearest schools, ratio of teacher to student, income, neighborhood trending and so forth.
Simply fill out their short form giving them an idea of your ideal purchase price, whether you want a home, condo, or a town home. How many square feet would you like, minimum number of bedrooms, bathrooms and garage spaces? There is a place to enter other requirements or comments, click continue and then you can start your selection and take a virtual tour of homes that meet your criteria. The home pictured is a fully furnished condo/town home. It’s fun to dream isn’t it?
