You’re one of many potential buyers in the Denver metro area.
And, if you are, you might be wondering what you can do to make sure your dream home in Denver is a reality.
For one thing, it is extremely rare for a single buyer to buy a single home in a city.
And if a single sale occurs, it may be the first one of its kind in the country.
And that is why Denver real estate agents say that there is a “golden opportunity” to purchase homes in the city, even if it is a very rare event.
“It is not uncommon to have an individual who may be interested in purchasing a house, but they do not have the funds to do so,” said Jason Anderson, who owns Denver Real Estate Agents, LLC.
“And so we try to be there to help them, but we also know that this is a unique opportunity and we need to help our clients who are in need.”
Anderson said the process is different in the metro area, but the same rules apply.
He said the buyers need to show proof of income, and they need to make a deposit.
If they can’t make the payment, the seller can either have the buyer move out or make the offer to the buyer in the buyer’s name.
But the real estate agent is also there to protect the buyer from any possible problems with the house.
“We have a full-time team who are going to work with the buyer on any questions they may have and we will try to make them happy,” Anderson said.
For more than a decade, Anderson has been helping people like Tom Schulz move to Denver, but he said it was difficult.
He told News24 that a home was always in the offing, and he did not want to move away from his family in his hometown of North Carolina.
“If you don’t move out, you’re going to be renting, and if you rent, it’s going to cost you a lot,” he said.
“If you move out of North Carolinians neighborhood, you will be moving into a gentrifying neighborhood, and that’s not going to happen.”
Anderson is not alone.
He also has found many homeowners who have a hard time finding a house in the Mile High City, because they have not yet found a buyer.
“People have been moving in, they’re moving out, they haven’t even considered the fact that they may not be able to buy it, and so it’s just not a very attractive situation,” Anderson told News25.
While the Denver area may not have a shortage of homes, Anderson said it has a very low home value.
The average price for a home in the Metro area is $934,900.
That number has gone down significantly since the housing crisis in 2008.
In 2014, the median home value was $1,932,400, down from $1.6 million in 2008, according to RealtyTrac.
“I’ve seen prices go up dramatically, I’ve seen incomes go up significantly, but it’s not a great situation,” said Anderson.
“It’s a pretty good indicator of the market going down.
If it’s down, it means that there’s a market there that is in demand.”
For the average buyer, Anderson says, a house is worth what a real estate broker will pay.
“For the realtors, they want the best price possible for the buyer,” Anderson explained.
“They want to know the value of a house before they go out and buy it.”
And if the buyer is a homeowner who has already moved out, Anderson is the first to say he is ready to move in.
But he says that he is not the only one who has the desire to buy.
“We’ve had several people that have expressed an interest in buying in Denver and we’re not going into any negotiations right now,” Anderson continued.
“But I think we’re all ready to see it happen. “
