Market Updates

Here in Colorado we are inundated with news of the ‘market’. Here are some recent headlines in local news papers:

‘The Real Estate Market Hits a New Low’

Newspaper
Newspaper (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

‘Foreclosures Are Running Rampant’

‘Have We Hit Bottom Yet?  Some Say No’

Living in Colorado is a blessing.  One of those blessing happens not be the national stories that end up in our local newspapers.  While the headlines above may be relevant to some they do not paint an accurate picture of what we’re seeing in the North Metro Denver area (or Denver as whole especially).  In towns like Thornton, Broomfield, Northglenn, Commerce City, Brighton, Westminster, Arvada, Louisville and Lafayette we’re seeing a decrease in inventory.  If you are searching for home for sale in Colorado you may notice a decrease in supply and an increase in demand we’re actually seeing sold prices at or near asking price.

Here is a look at Denver Metro Real Estate Market:

Real Estate Market Activity April 2012

 

The number of homes sold has actually gone up since last year.

Here’s a look at the Northglenn / Thornton Real Estate Market in April 2012:

 

The number of homes for sale is down by 42.54% and the solds are up 13.47%.

If you or someone in your family has been waiting to sell for the market to ‘turn around’ – this may be the time.  Even if we haven’t fully recovered the timing is good to get more for your house then you could in the past.

Memorial Day Means BBQ

Happy Memorial Day! It’s BBQ Season and here are some of my Favorite Grilling Tips… Have a great and safe Holiday

  • Learn the difference between direct and indirect heat and how to use them. Direct for food that cooks through in twenty minutes or less, indirect for food that needs more than twenty.
  • Treat your grill like your cast-iron skillet, i.e. season and don’t scrub clean. Season by slooooowly grilling a bunch of sausages, rendering the fat and letting it coat the grill. Cook until deep golden brown.
  • Oil the food, not the grate. Oil on a grate burns quickly, gets tacky and glues food to the grate. Oiling food prevents juices from evaporating, stops sticking and promotes caramelization.
  • Use the Grilling Trilogy: coat food with olive oil, black pepper, adding salt just before grilling, so meat doesn’t dry out.
  • Baste with barbecue sauce only in the last five minutes prevents the sauce’s sugar from burning.
  • Do a dry rub for eighteen- to-twenty-four hours before cooking
  • Get cuts consistent in size and weight so meat cooks at the same rate,
  • Is it Done? Twist the bone. It’s done if the meat falls off.


My Favorite Recipe! Grilled Bananas Foster

  • Cut unpeeled bananas crosswise and lengthwise, dip cut-side in honey, then cinnamon-and-sugar and grill for Banana Split Sundaes or great by themselves!
