There are a few different ways to remove wallpaper, but the only real way to know for sure what you need to do, is to start getting into the project and figure out what you are dealing with! Newer wallpaper that has a vinyl top layer tends to be the easiest to remove, so if that is what you determine you have, consider yourself lucky. If you have got the old stuff, multiple layers, painted over wallpaper or an unfinished wall behind everything, you have quite the little project on your hands. Ah but don’t fret, worst case scenario it’s really nothing that a sander, chemical remover-solution and a good scraper can’t get off. Of course when things go down that path, you might also be looking at a few repairs to the wall as well.
Here is our

Now that Thanksgiving is officially behind us, it is time to fully embrace the most wonderful holiday of all, Christmas! In fact, this weekend was the most popular time for Santa’s elves to be busy at work decorating the houses in their neighborhoods and city buildings. Thus creating the wonderful visual spectacular we all love and have learned to expect during this time of year. Whether you are into simple white lights and red ribbons, inflatable Mickey Mouse Christmas characters, or extravagant light shows with music and animatronics, one thing you can be sure of is an inflated energy bill. So this December instead of increasing your carbon footprint even further, adorn your home with more eco-friendly holiday decoration options.…

Blending an eclectic mix of homes, capacious lots with mature trees, and close proximity to restaurants, retail, trails, schools, RTD and much more, the Moore's neighborhood is one of Boulder's most beloved communities.
Originally settled in the 40's and 50's, homeowners in Moore's were drawn to it's pastoral feel with larger parcels not only for their homes, but also for their horses, chickens, goats, gardens and workshops. Today, Moore's offers an infusion of architectural styles including original bungalows, remodels and pop-tops, and stately newly-built homes. The larger lots remain with most boasting 1/3 to 1 acre. Seeing a strong revival over the past fifteen years, stakeholders in Boulder's continued expansion look to Moore's as one…

Today’s home buyers and sellers are savvy, and have endless information right at the tips of their fingers. More informed than any other consumer based industry, home buyers and sellers of the future will demand a higher level of service from their Realtor, especially as the real estate market is expected to continue to rebound. One of the best ways Realtors can elevate the level of service they provide is to hone in on their sphere by getting to know their client base better. With that being said, the National Association of REALTORS® recently put out their 2013 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, which agents and marketing professionals can use to understand the reasons, motivations, and trends of buyers and sellers. Below you will find…

Economics seem to rule the roost these days. As such, there always appears to be some degree of drama attached to them. Economics are the core issue when it comes to mortgage interest rates fluctuating up and down, the stock market typifying a roller coaster or the government shutting down because the political parties can’t agree on what to do.
Buying and selling real estate is an economic decision. If a seller decides to sell their home, what is the economic impact to them? What are the economic options left if they do sell? For a buyer, deciding what to buy is based to a great degree on their economic situation. How much can they afford? What is the economic bearing on their financial state?
The 2013 Boulder Valley housing market has been a…

Walkability simply refers to how easily you can get around a given area or neighborhood by foot. This concept is not new, but the word is sure generating a pretty big buzz these days, especially in terms of real estate, lifestyles, fitness, and the eco friendly industry. Although the idea of living, working and playing in one centralized location, where everything is close enough to walk wherever you need to go is one of the basic draws to urban living, the concept has now expanded to mean more. Walkability and bikeability both refer to a way of life, one that offers residents ease, convenience, and community.
Walkability is huge in cities like Boulder and Denver, Colorado because more and more people believe that being able to use other means of…

If you are like me, you keep your eye on homes in your neighborhood and the surrounding community to see if people are remodeling, what new listings are being sold for, and which homes are being foreclosed on. I don’t necessarily do this because I am interested in those particular homes, but instead I want to see how these factors are affecting the relative value of real estate in my community. These indicators ultimately have an effect on your home’s value, which is why they are important not only to buyers and sellers, but also to homeowners. With that being said, I have recently noticed a steep decline in the number of for sale signs going up in the Front Range area of Colorado. Two or three years ago it seemed like every other home had a for sale…

Boulder County and the surrounding areas are seeing exactly what we predicted they would in home sales for the month of April, with decreased inventories and absorption rates, as well as increased sales prices. Since none of this really comes to a surprise for knowledgeable home buyers and sellers, I thought instead it might be worthwhile to talk about what we are seeing in the average and median sale price. First, lets go over exactly what the difference is between a median and average, and how they pertain to real estate.
The median and average sale prices you see so frequently referred to in real estate are two different comparisons from the same exact numbers. From elementary school math, you will remember that the average of a certain group of…
