We did a hike today starting at NCAR on the Mesa Trail over to Chautauqua Park. Came across two rattlesnakes on the trail–could see one (see pic) and we heard one behind some rocks really rattling away.
Two homes on the same street sold recently in Louisville, CO. Both similar in size–one was updated and listed by a Realtor, the other was not updated and not listed by a Realtor. The updated house listed by a Realtor sold for 105% of list price–bidding war situation.
The non-updated house not listed by a Realtor was sold via word of mouth or one of those buyer letters. The non-updated house sold for $90,000 less. If the non-updated house had been listed by a Realtor and put on the market it would have sold for at least $50,000 more than what it sold for.
Make sure to always hire a Professional Realtor to provide a full-service listing when selling your home.
