Real Estate News with Terri Taydus, GRI, CNA


Take a look at what's happening in the world of real estate for Boulder County, the City of Westminster, and Broomfield.


Tight inventory creates challenges for both home buyers and sellers; home buyers struggle to be competitive (I have several strategies up my sleeve! Thinking about buying?  Let's connect and talk about what takes to get your offer noticed and accepted!), home sellers struggle to understand that even though a potential buyer may be willing to pay more for their home, it is still important to price it correctly and skillfully analyze all offers to avoid appraisal pitfalls (I can help!  Let's chat!)

I have two questions…

 1. If you have sold a home in the past 5 to 7 years, what did your Realtor® do that you really liked?

 2. If you could   list your home, with a full and comprehensive marketing package (including a fabulous print and virtual presence), as well as additional services provided by your Realtor®; (and paid for by your Realtor®) such as: 

  • A pre-listing appraisal from a professional, licensed appraiser
  • A staging consultation and one month’s staging for any two rooms (or a professional staging consult on how to use your own furnishings to stage)
  • A home warranty to cover you during the listing period and that will be passed along to the buyer for the first year post-closing (this will help make your home more desirable)
  • A professional move out OR pre-listing clean (your choice)

     Other service options, arranged by your Realtor®, that can be paid for after you close from the proceeds of the sale (i.e. no out of pocket cash up front): 

  • Concierge service that can help you with everything from minor repairs (including those that need to be done for the buyer’s home inspection); to minor updates, to full room remodels – to help you yield the most return from the sale of your home!
  • An organizing / packing service to help you get organized and pack for your impending move!

AND, if services like this didn’t cost you any more in listing agent commissions than the services of the average Realtor®?   Would this be appealing to you?

I would love to hear from you!  Please post your responses so that I can learn what is most important to you!

What is the value of a good home warranty?  PRICELESS!  A good home warranty can not only save your money on expensive home repairs, it can reduce stress knowing that you are covered.  You can't put a price on security and a good night's sleep. 

That is why I purchase a home warranty for every one of my home buyers and sellers.  When you buy or sell a home with me, I want you to enjoy the process and not worry about costly repairs.  

I use 2-10 Home Warranty.  Please CLICK HERE to see a short video clip of the value, and peace of mind, a home warranty can provide.

If you know anyone looking to buy or sell a home, please give me a call!  I offer a very comprehensive marketing package for my home sellers, and am skilled at writing competitive offers for my home buyers.

As we enter the summer months and work through the challenges associated with the current health crisis, many are wondering what impact the economic slowdown will have on home prices.  Looking at the big picture, supply and demand will give us the clearest idea of what's to come.  CLICK HERE to read more...

Some GOOD NEWS!

We are showing properties again, and the market is reflecting this good news!  With each showing, we are respecting all of the safety protocol for COVID, and taking the necessary precautions to keep everyone safe.  This means that there are a few more hoops to jump through: COVID Disclosures to sign, masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, and often times shoe covers (depending on what the Seller requires)

I showed a mountain property this past weekend, it was new on the market, priced in the $600k range, and by the end of the weekend there were two offers on the property.  This type of activity is being seen throughout the local market.  We are starting to see multiple offers on homes in all price ranges, slightly less in the over $1m mark, but those homes are moving as well!

For my home buyers, I have strategies in place to help you submit a strong offer that gets noticed!

For my home sellers, I have an excellent marketing package that will give your home maximum exposure, and I am skilled at helping you navigate a multiple offer situation!

So what does this mean to you?  If you are thinking about selling, NOW is the time to list!  If you were on the fence about buying, it’s time to get back out there!   Inventory is starting to increase, and interest rates are still low; this is good news for both home buyers and sellers!

Ready? Set? GO!!!!!!

I’m here, and I’m ready to assist you, your friends and family.  Please call, text or email if I can be of assistance.

Believe it or not, there are lots of things you can do to prep your house for a sale without even going to the store!  Your real estate plans don't have to be completely on hold even while we've hit the pause button on other parts of daily life.  Tackling small projects from cleaning the corners you may normally skip, to tidying up your yard, are easy and necessary wins if you're thinking of marketing and selling your home once life starts to return to normal.  CLICK HERE to read more!

Today’s everyday reality is pretty different than it looked just a few weeks ago. We’re learning how to do a lot of things in new ways, from how we work remotely to how we engage with our friends and neighbors. Almost everything right now is shifting to a virtual format. One of the big changes we’re adapting to is the revisions to the common real estate transaction, which all vary by state and locality. Technology, however, is making it possible for many of us to continue on the quest for homeownership, an essential need for all.

As of today, 4/8/2020, Here in Colorado we are under a Shelter in Place order to keep everyone safe.  This order does not allow us to meet face to face with our clients at this time.  This means no in person showings, meetings, or open houses.  But thanks to technology, we are able to conduct business and continue to sell and list homes.  

PLEASE NOTE: The real estate landscape is changing day by day, so this information could be yesterday's  news by tomorrow, but for today, this is how we are proceeding. 

Although buying and selling real estate is still possible, I have advised my clients to hold off until it is safe to meet in person.  If you are reading this and are in dire need of buying a home or selling your home, please reach out to me; there are ways I can still help you, albeit from a distance.  

What does this distancing look like if you are buying or selling your home:

  • You will not physically be able to view properties
  • You will not be be able to do a final walk through in person
  • You will not be able to meet with a home inspector at the home
  • Your closing will be remote, or possibly via a drive up situation
  • You will not be able to attend or host an open house

Obviously buying or selling is not ideal during these times, however it IS doable ;) 

Both myself and WK Real Estate are set up to work with you remotely.  Through the use of technology, we can host virtual walk throughs, and meet via online platforms such as Zoom. 

To read more about how technology is aiding us to best serve you during these difficult times, please CLICK HERE.  

Most importantly, stay safe, stay home if you can, and stay healthy.

And last but not least, thank you to all of our first responders!  You are appreciated beyond measure!

There is a lot of uncertainty in the world today, and home buyers and sellers are scared.  They are worried if 2008 will repeat itself. But I have good news! THIS IS NOT LIKE THE LAST TIME! 

Buyers are still buying and Sellers are still selling; although in an effort to stay healthy and not further spread CONVID-19, the way we do day to day business has changed a bit.  I am happy to discuss with you the measures I am taking to keep my family healthy and to protect my clients :)

Now is not the time to panic! Please CLICK HERE to watch a short video about how this time is not like the "last time"

Check out the results of the latest Pulsenomics survey.  Of course this is a "big picture" approach.  In individual pocket areas the values could be much higher or lower.  Working with a licensed Realtor to buy or sell a home is the best way to make sure you are keeping up on the current market in YOUR area.
