As a recovering fix 'n flipper myself, who has experience in this area from Colorado to California, in my opinion, the hardest part of any renovation process is accurately estimating my costs.  When I started buying up fix and flips in the 1980s, I had to do it the old fashioned, very time consuming way: ask several of my favorite contractors to come on site, write up an estimate and then I would do more calling around and comparing with my business partners to see if I had the estimating figures correct. Of course, over time I learned some basic formulas that would help guide me.  But for those of you just starting out this process, fortunately for you, has evolved to your benefit!

Keep renting or buy a place of our own? That is a question I have heard many times over my last twenty-plus years as a mortgage loan originator. It is a basic question, but carries with it so many important, weighty thoughts and considerations. “Buying is such a big commitment.” “I don’t want to throw my money away on rent any longer.” “What if I am buying at the peak of the market?” “I don’t want to deal with all the maintenance.” All of these thoughts, and more, swirl around in our heads as we think about buying a property. There are no right or wrong answers. All we can do is arm ourselves with as much information as possible and put it to use in making the best decision for our own, personal situation.

If you are considering investing in real estate, then you are in luck. Homeownership rates are at their lowest levels in 50 years. This major shift away from homeownership can be attributed to several factors I will discuss in this blog. 

Renting offers the kind of flexibility that younger Americans appreciate. This flexibility allows them to delay certain decisions such as starting a family or marriage that may precede buying a home.  Apart from this, buying a home is not affordable for many renters. This is because home values and incomes have risen disproportionately. As a result, millennials are renting for longer periods. Equally, the number of baby boomers staying in the rental

If you live in a rented condominium, apartment, or home, you need to protect yourself and your property from the unexpected. The owner’s or landlord's insurance policy WILL NOT pay to replace your belongings. Their insurance covers the building, not your personal property.

That’s where renter’s insurance comes in. Renter's insurance is a smart choice for safeguarding yourself in the event of theft, sewer backup damage, fire and more. With renter's insurance from Bolder Insurance, we are an independent insurance agency, so we have dozens of companies to compare, so you get a policy that suites your budget and lifestyle.


Personal property coverage can help ensure that if something happens and you

As confidence in the stock market continues to vary and people become more eager to take control of their investment strategies, real estate continues to grow as a popular alternative option. From fix-and-flip projects to rental properties, investors are continuing to take advantage of lucrative opportunities in the real estate market.

It’s a little-known fact that real estate may be held in IRA or 401(k) accounts in the same manner as stocks, mutual funds, and other more traditional assets. While personal capital may be limited, one’s retirement account may have larger sums of money available for new investment initiatives. And, yielded income will bear the retirement account’s tax advantage. Today,

So.  You are asking yourself whether to rent or buy this year? Many folks are too.  I thought this would be a good chance to share a few words from the National Association of Realtors including an easy to use tool they provide to help answer exactly this question, "Should I buy or rent?".   This is a question most of us will face in our lives, whether buying a house makes more financial sense over renting a home.

Not only is fall definitely in the air, but the sights and sounds of Halloween are haunting us daily. Whether we are grocery shopping, walking the kids to school, or even going to the gym, we see Jack-O-Lanterns, black cats and the promise of clever costumes on the way! But if you are house hunting this time of year, don't get spooked by the subtle changes in our Colorado real estate market.  Yes, things tend to slow down this time of year as homeowners settle in for the winter all wrapped up like mummies, but that may be a good time to be active in the market.   There are still plenty of options on the market for the first time or repeat home buyer. When I refer to options, I don't just mean types of homes
