The housing market may have temporarily slowed down due to the global health pandemic, but that's no excuse for would-be sellers to skip updating areas of their homes in need of serious upgrades. Real estate has been deemed an essential business in many states. After sheltering in place for a month or more, people will be ready for change in their homes -- or looking for a new one.

You're Home. Now What?

As I type this, I realize the second I publish it there will already be new information at our fingertips, and how demanding the 24-hour news cycle is during times like these. Over the past month we have witnessed the most interesting response to a pandeminc in my history (I’ve lived through four decades!). Cities look deserted, tickets are being given to citizens not abiding by the “shelter in place” rules, and as fast as I can type this blog, your favorite source of news is sharing the increased number of Covid cases nationwide, community state of emergencies, deployment of national guard to support challenged communities and the abundance of public programming cancellations. of donating or sharing what is no longer of use.

New Year, New…..What?

As a new homeowner, you can find me constantly updating and decorating my home. For seasons, for new trends, you name it. I recently put in a gas fireplace and I think it adds a lot to the room.

Things have changed in real estate. In major ways. The first game changing way is how long people are staying in their homes. Economists used to be able to set their watch by the statistic that the average “owner occupied” homeowners move every 7 years. The national average has now shifted to almost 13 years. That’s a big deal. From a volume stand point, that means almost half of the sales that are organic will be happening moving forward in the next decade.

Working in real estate, I watch Chris and other realtors in our office navigate transactions daily. I just bought my first home and the process was seamless. I would recommend working with a realtor to anyone, so much that when I discovered family friends of mine were considering FSBO (for-sale by owner), I took it upon myself to write this blog to anyone considering it.

Navigating a Transitioning Market: See The Real Estate Market Change Coming


One of the greatest blessings that I ever had in my real estate career was starting in one of the two worst Denver real estate markets in 80 years. In 1981 the oil and gas industry was an overwhelming majority of the metro Denver economy. The oil commodity prices crashed that year and subsequently decimated the real estate market in Denver. Some neighborhoods dropped 30%, others over 50%. I was in 1st grade and learned absolutely nothing from that market correction that year.
