If you are a buyer looking for a home you can choose between new construction or resale.

The benefits to going with a new home are that everything is brand new and, if purchased while it’s still in the construction stages, you can design the home to your liking and pick the materials you’d like to have in it, including the appliances. Everything is done for you and new homes today are designed to meet the needs and wants of today’s styles. New homes tend to be more energy efficient and are equipped with some of the latest technology, as well.

If you are considering relocating to Denver, congratulations – you are in good company. The Denver area has experienced quite a bit of growth the past several years. During the recession of 2008-2009, Millennials were moving to Denver because it was one of the few places in the country where they could find a job and enjoy where they lived. That growth has since expanded across all types of people.

The long-term (let’s say 20 years) outlook for growth in the Denver area is quite positive. Since the early 1990’s Denver has been steadily growing. The oil and interest rate shocks of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s stunted Denver’s growth for about a decade, but it has been making up for lost time ever since with growth spurts in the 1990’s and since the last recession. This is all good news for anyone who buys a home and hopes for it to appreciate.

I recently listed my sister’s house for sale. It was the first home she owned and she had spent the last 8 years there. The whole experience gave me a fascinating insight into what home ownership really means. It also reminded me of the amazing opportunities I have to impact people. It made me realize why I got in this business in the first place.

With regards to my sister, I got to watch her experience the full range of emotions as she prepared her home for sale. The fun times, the people that had come as well as gone in her life, the recollection of all the hopes and dreams she had realized since the purchase. It all hit her hard as she cleaned closets and decided whether to keep certain pictures and belongings or throw them away. There are the good times and the bad times, the good memories and the not-so-good memories, but they have one thing in common: THEY ALL TOOK PLACE IN HER HOME. There is an undeniable emotional attachment to this finite structure.

Can you REALLY buy a house for less than $1K down payment?

The biggest obstacle for many first time buyers in the Bay Area remains coming up with a sufficient down payment. Putting down the conventional 20% on a $400K purchase is a discouraging $80,000. That is a lot of saving for some younger people who are just getting a start in their financial life.
