March 19th, 2019 - Selling a Home - As-is, Mistakes, and Timing - Click HERE for your FREE ticket!

There are a lot of myths out there about what you must or “should” do in order to sell your home. The myths are perpetuated by shows on television featuring real estate agents with pearly white teeth and selling tiny homes for 2 million dollars. Real estate agents further confuse the issue because they advertise homes as “totally remodeled” and make it seem as though these homes are the only ones available.

During this 90-minute panel presentation, we will discuss the pro’s and con’s of fixing up a home to sell, as well as the pitfalls and benefits to selling ‘as-is.”

Here are just a few of the questions that will be answered:

  • What is necessary to sell a home in the Denver and surrounding area?

  • What does ’as-is’ really mean and does it make financial sense to sell that way?

  • How do I know if an as-is cash offer is a fair offer?

  • When or is there a better time to sell?

April 16th, 2019 - Building, Buying, or Renovating your “Last Home” - Click HERE for your FREE ticket!

Retirees often elect to build, buy, or remodel shortly after retirement expecting this house to be “the last home” they will ever own. Fast forward 5, 10, or even 15 years and what was meant to be the “last house” is no longer equipped for current needs.

In this month’s seminar, we will share key considerations when building, buying, or remodeling to stay put into old age. Learn more about affordable accessibility and universal design features, remodel ideas, resale considerations, and cost saving strategies.

May 21st, 2019 - Preparing to Downsize - Click HERE for your FREE ticket!

The most commonly used word to describe the downsizing process is “overwhelm.” In fact, many people find themselves paralyzed by even the idea of moving to a smaller or more manageable space.

The good news is that there are people, strategies, and services that can make the downsizing process much simpler and far more manageable!

Here are just a few of the questions we will answer at this month’s seminar:

  • Where do I begin?

  • Should I sell my house or move first?

  • What do I do with all the extra “stuff?”

  • Who is available to help and how much will it cost?

  • How long should it take to go through my things before moving?

  • What is the value of household items?

  • What will my home sell for and how long will it take?

  • What are the costs associated with moving?

If you are considering a move today, a year from now, or anytime in your future, this seminar is designed to help remove the overwhelm and inspire you to take action — even if it’s just a small action!

Join us and we will share with you the secret to ‘eating the elephant’ one bite at a time!
