If it has the word Highland in it, I’m selling it. Yesterday it was Highlands Ranch, today it’s three blocks from Highland Square. This two-bedroom bungalow (also won in a bidding war) spent very little time on the market but is withing striking distance of 32nd and Lowell, 32nd and Zuni, Mile High and LoHi!
The buyers have already installed a bathroom in the basement, central AC, underground sprinklers and expanded the master bedroom! And that’s how you build equity in a house.
The rule of thumb these days is that if you’re interested in buying a house, so is someone else. So, it pays to work with a Realtor that has extensive relationships with other brokers around town so they know when houses are coming on the market… before your competition does. I guess I wouldn’t have written that last sentence if I didn’t think I was that guy.
