There are a lot of reasons to use a Denver real estate agent to buy a property in the Denver area. But how do you know which individual or real estate firm to choose?
Denver Realtors always look forward to helping you buy or sell your next home.
In Denver, just like in other hot metro markets, the rental market is heavily impacted by high and increasing demand. Find agents that search all Denver homes, even when they are listed with other real estate companies. It guarantees that you don’t miss out on great deals. Denver is the capital of Colorado, lying east of the Rocky Mountains Front Range, at an elevation of 5,280 feet. The city sprawls in an area of 401.3 square kilometres. The city is located in a ‘bowl’ and hence is protected from strong winds and severe cold. The climate is semi-arid. Denver City and County possesses 79 neighbourhoods. The city has a varying character, with houses from the beginning of the twentieth century lying alongside suburban style, modern development areas and large skyscrapers. The older brick buildings are denser in the city centre, while the neighbourhoods away from the centre contain modern structures.
The vacancy rate is very low, around 2%, and rents have risen by nearly 30% recently. Since the monthly payments for a mortgage and a lease are roughly the same, purchasing a home quickly becomes a much more appealing option than moving from rental to rental.
Choosing an agent
Choose a ‘buyer’s agent.’ A buyer’s agent is a real estate agent that negotiates for you, not the seller. The agent should make sure that you pay the lowest price – not that the seller makes the biggest profit. Beware of real estate firms that claim to work for both sellers and buyers. They tend to charge commissions from both sides, so that you end up paying more, and the seller profits less. These ‘dual agencies’ give least protection to you and the seller.
Find an agent that provides free house inspection services. Not all Denver real estate agents provide free professional home inspections, but you can find those who do. The willingness of agents to subject their properties to through inspection is a sign of sincerity. Best of all, you not only save on costly home inspection bills, you also get a realistic idea of how much you need to spend to get the property you are eyeing in tip top shape.
Denver is a growing metropolis. The Denver real estate scene is quite attractive. The office buildings, restaurants, shopping centres, and entertainment venues are situated in downtown of Denver. This area is a thriving one but also safe and clean.2016-02-16
