No Time for Love, Dr. Jones [A Few Quick Updates]

by Osman Parvez

It's the end of February and the market is already heating up.   Here's a couple of quick updates. 


1.  The Boulder Real Estate Meetup is tomorrow (Wednesday) at 6pm.   Please RSVP.  I suspect given the popularity of the topic, it will be standing room only.   There are now 30 developments on my list for discussion.   The hand out I've prepared will definitely not be a one-pager.

2.  Over the weekend, a loan officer I've never worked previously screwed up and caused my client (the buyer) to push out the closing date.   Luckily, a lender from my recommended list is picking up the deal and taking it across the finish line.   What seemed like a great deal turned out to be a bunch of hand waiving and empty promises.   It's costing my client real money and caused her a lot of unnecessary stress.    I'm deeply grateful to the seller and her agent for being understanding.   

Two Take Home Lessons:   Buyers - go ahead and shop loan programs but consider only highly reputable local lenders.   They have skin in the game and are taking reputational risk.   Realtors -  negotiate aggressively but fairly with your counter party.  The agent you're beating up over trivial issues might end up saving your butt down the road.

The Peloton's Heated Rooftop Pool
3.  I have a new 1 bedroom loft listing coming at the Peloton.   It's priced aggressively, has several updates, and is absolutely beautiful. Loft style units at the Peloton tend to go quickly.     If you want a sneak peak, call me at 303.746.6896. It should be on the MLS by this weekend.    Here's the photo set.
