Denver Rents are Unaffordable

Denver Rents are Unaffordable!

We hear it constantly, rental costs are going up! In the Denver Metro market, most people are spending over 30% of their income on rent. The worst part? That money is not building the renter equity.  That money is making the landlord richer. Make the smarter move and buy your own place. There are lots of townhouses, condos and detached homes available in the Denver area looking for new owners.

A recent report released by Zillow shows that buying is a better deal because the median home price will cost less than 20% of the average person’s income. That’s a lot of money saved per month. You can also deduct the interest paid on your mortgage – something you cannot do with your rent.

Many renters have roommates to afford the rent. Imagine buying a home and having a roommate pay half your mortgage. Win win! This is a great way to gain equity using other people’s money. So find an interested party that wants to live with you and start the home buying process.

With rents being higher than mortgages, now is the time to buy. As far as the down payment goes, you just need to buckle down and save. Many people also qualify for down-payment assistance. Call us and we can discuss great lenders with you to get your pre-qualified.  Having a great lender in the competitive market is very important.

Reduce Your Kids Back-to-School Stress

Back-to-School stress gets to all of us.

Parents, teachers, and children can all find this time extremely stressful. We suggest these tips to help reduce back-to-school stress and help get the year off on the right foot! Many kids find that waking up earlier, gathering school supplies, and actually attending school can be a lot harder than they remember.  So besides the obvious, like eating a nutritious breakfast and going to bed early, here are they are:

Talk About It

Before school stress gets out of hand, have a talk. But instead of talking, listen. Many kids can be talked through the concerns they are having at school. Sometimes what seems like a small problem to us adults, is a huge problem to a child.

Know the Rules

Understand your school’s rules. Make sure your kid knows about the rules on electronics, dress code, etc. Schools vary so it’s important that you stay in the know. Showing up to school and finding out you are accidentally breaking the rule can be stressful!

Establish a Routine

Get a routine in place for the kids. In the morning we recommend a breakfast routine that results in an easy transition out the door. After school, a homework routine is recommended. Last but not least, prep for the next day. If your kid has everything stacked and ready to go for the next morning, the stress isn’t there in the morning.

We hope these tips help you and your student get back-to-school without too much fuss! Double check your supply list and enjoy the year!
