With interest rates so low, many homeowners are refinancing their mortgages, securing low interest rates. In order to secure a refinance, which is essentially a new loan, an certified appraiser needs to prepare the appraisal report for your home. Appraisals are based on recent sales prices of comparable properties. Here are a few ways to secure the highest possible appraisal for your property:
1. MAKE SURE APPRAISER KNOWS YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD. You can request that your lender send a local appraiser; if that still doesn't happen, supply as much information as you can about the quality of your neighborhood.
2. PROVIDE YOUR OWN COMPARABLES. Provide your appraiser with at least three solid and well-priced comparable…

Everyone loves the smell of freshly baked cookies, but don't expect that aroma to sell your home, new research suggests.
Homeowners are often coached to create pleasing aromas when potential buyers pay a visit. But complex smells, like baked goods and potpourri, are likely to damp enthusiasm for a fast sale for top dollar, says Eric Spangenberg, dean of the college of business at Washington State University, whose study on the effects of aromas is scheduled to appear in the Journal of Retailing next month.
He and his co-authors studied 402 people in a home-décor store in Switzerland over 18 days in 2010 and found that shoppers spent 31.8% more, on average, when the store was scented with a simple orange scent over a complex blend…

Welcome to 2013 and our nice little January thaw. I'm not saying it's balmy, but it is beautiful with the winter white snow and clear blue skies. Once you get out on the slopes or quiet snow shoe trail you warm right up and the result is exhilarating. I think most people here would agree we are happy to have what we have to complain about. Like the January temperatures, real estate activity is following the same trend, slowly but surely turning back up. According to an article in last Sunday's Steamboat Pilot, "At the end of 2012, 54 new permits for single-family homes had been issued, with 21 of them within the city limits and 33 more outside the city, according to the Routt County Regional Building Department. It serves the city and county outside…

Well after a dry start to the season, Mother Nature is smiling a broad grin on Steamboat Springs. It all started with a strong winter storm system that came through northwest Colorado on the weekend of the 8th & 9th of December, allowing enough coverage to start opening runs that are not covered with manmade snow. Then after a few days of Colorado sunshine on Thursday last week it began to dump snow on Mt. Werner and it has not stopped! In the past 24 hours the Steamboat Ski Area has received 8” of new Champaign Powder; 13” over the last 48 hours; and the forecast is for another 8” to 15” today with another 1 to 2 feet on Tuesday. Winter is here and it is great.
With many direct flights to Steamboat from cities such as Chicago, Atlanta, Houston,…

More and more good news is building for the real estate industry. Recent lending rates went back down to the all time low point. We are seeing 30 year mortgages just above 3% and 15 year loans below 3%. Bank experts are forecasting that these rates will not move upward in the short term. Also, there seems to be a noticeable reaching out by banks to say they are looking for loans and getting back into the business again. We’ll see if that is really the case!
More metro areas are reporting upward growth in home prices. Along with that news we are seeing more demand for newly constructed homes. As reported this week on the world news – inventory of homes for sale is lower than it’s been for 15 years. Also, the value of homes nationwide is up 6.4% from…
