How much did I pay for my home? What is my home worth as an average in the neighborhood--am I at the high or medium range when compared with the other homes which are for sale or have recently sold? I can help you determine that with a professional opinion called a competitive market analysis.

How much equity do I have in my home measured by the value above the financing or other obligations owed when you get that check at the closing table? Is my home an income property and will I

With spring on the horizon it’s a great time to start cleaning out the corners, closets and cabinets. It’s been 10 years since we last moved. We’ve add three more people to our family and with all their stuff, I’m ready to move with two suitcases and leave it all behind. Before I take such drastic measures, I’m setting some rules.

Inspired by 40 Bags in 40 Days, join me for a three part series as I chronicle the declutter of my family, Team Jones. First, I’ve establish The Rules. I’ve broken them down into three sections: Reframing Clutter, Organizing, Hard Limits, Survival Tools.

Somehow I got myself into this place, so first I took a look on the inside to see where I could de-clutter my habits.

Reframing Clutter

Boulder County’s inventory is low, making it a seller’s market. With fewer homes for sale, sellers are in the best position to negotiate not only the price of their home, but the terms of their contract making it a great time to sell. Even if you are looking to relocate later in the year, now may be the perfect time to put your home on the market. Here are a few scenarios to help you decide.

Scenario 1: You’re moving out of Boulder County

Even if your move is planned for later in the year, putting your house on the market now may be the perfect move. Selling early in the year means less competition later from spring sellers. This makes it very likely your home will sell before you move, alleviating the worry of two mortgages.

kids in boulder co

It’s not that I didn’t have a great childhood. I didn't walk uphill both ways to school or anything. I had a pretty typical east coast upbringing.  Kids these days do have a lot on their plates, but for crying out loud, it’s good to be a kid in Boulder CO. 

1) Maker Boulder maker boulder

Maker Boulder just held their Mini Maker Faire event this weekend and they knocked it out of the park. Mackintosh Academy sponsored a booth were kids used drills, 2x4s and other material to make their own catapults. Google showed off the latest in 3D printing. There were drones, LEGOS, rockets and so much more. When I was a kid we had LEGOs and rockets, but a 3D printer was called a replicator and was only on Star Trek.
