PRICE REDUCTION - 245 Dahlia Drive, Louisville


Now $499,900 - get yourself into Dutch Creek! This 1668 square foot bi-level solves the challenges that some bi-levels have very elegantly! First of all, the upper level flows seamlessly from room to room. The kitchen is open to the family room while still being convenient to formal living and dining. You can just picture your friends mingling and moving comfortably from bar to buffet during your housewarming party!


Upstairs is a bedroom or office and a full bathroom. The kitchen has some stainless steel appliances and a long counter for casual dining. The entertaining space spills out from the family room onto the back deck and brick patio. Play catch in the yard, sip lemonade under the shade of the large tree, or tend to your thriving vegetables and flowers. The PVC hoops provide a structure for plastic sheeting that extends the growing season for those who can't get enough gardening!

The master bedroom walks out into the yard, providing convenience and natural light to the lower level. There's a full master bathroom, second bedroom, rec room and laundry room to round out the downstairs. The floor plan has a nice balance of allowing togetherness and also providing spaces to do your own thing.  

Hardwood floors, slate tile wainscotting, 2-car garage, fenced backyard, new James Hardie ColorPlus siding and front door, two-year old seamless gutters and downspouts, and low-maintenance, established front yard landscaping. At $499,900, you'll be hard-pressed to find the combination of square footage, features and location of this home anywhere else in Louisville.

So much about this area to love - enjoy movies in the park at the Louisville Community Park only blocks away, take your furry children to the dog park, or hop on your bike and head for an ice cream cone at Sweet Cow downtown. The neighborhood schools are some of the best in the Boulder Valley School District. Just move in, get comfortable and enjoy the Colorado lifestyle. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like a private showing.

Personally, I love the Bradburn neighborhood. I appreciate the look of the homes with their alley-load garages, and that no matter your location in the neighborhood there is always a green space to which it's easy to stroll. I've been keeping track of the sales history for a while - you can read past posts with useful data HERE. The appreciation for both single family homes and townhomes is stable and positive

You Want Anchovies on That?

I've never been good at asking for help; it's something I had to learn. When I was in my 20s, I was afraid that people would think I wasn't smart if I asked a question, and I would do just about anything to avoid that flush of embarrassment. My college roommate and I would even argue over who was going to call to order the pizza. I don't know, maybe they'd mention a topping I was unfamiliar with. The thing is, I was so wrapped up in my concerns that it took me a long time to notice that people never did act with anything other than kind assistance.

Nowadays I'll call just about anyone with any question, and bad on them if they treat me poorly for it. There is so much to explore in real estate and related industries like mortgage lending that one can't isolate and survive. I like learning and collaborating, and I've discovered that most people are relieved when you release them from their burden to be perfect by admitting that you're not, either.

I've also discovered that if you make your intentions known to the people around you, they will often help you achieve your goals. For the most part, people want to help. Especially those of us in the service fields - we'd like to feel that years of schooling and training hasn't all been for nothing. 😉

Why am I telling you this? I've been meeting a lot of younger people lately who were interested in buying a home but were hesitant to ask for help. Some, like me, felt pressure to know all of the answers going in. Some were afraid to waste my time when they didn't yet know what they wanted. Some didn't want to get a high-pressure sales pitch from an industry professional. One thing they all had in common was a lack of time.

There is so much information on real estate available these days; it can be overwhelming. Searching thousands of listings, not knowing for sure if what you are looking at is even available any more, perhaps not knowing for sure what you can afford. Reading articles on mortgages and insurance and interest rates, wondering if your resource is credible. Frustrating and time-sucking.

Like so many things in life, you don't have to do it alone. DON'T HESITATE TO CONTACT ME - it's my job and it is really no trouble. I have helped plenty of people who don't plan on moving for a few years still. It's never too early to start gathering information, and I haven't laughed at a question yet. Although I will warn you - my favorite response to, "Can I ask a stupid question?" is "Better than anyone I know!"

BUYERS:
  • Get set up on an automatic search directly from the MLS to save you time and spare you inaccurate information.
  • Receive monthly real estate email tidbits and links to help you get ready to enter the market.
  • Get the name of a lender who can give you an idea of what you can afford in just minutes on the phone, without hassling you further.
  • Ask questions about language or resources while you learn about the home buying process.

SELLERS:
  • Get set up on an automatic report of properties like yours that are selling in your area.
  • Receive an opinion of value so you can decide if selling now will meet your financial goals.
  • Get an estimate of costs and fees so you calculate the potential profit from a sale.
  • Receive a report from yours truly and a licensed stager listing suggested repairs and improvements to make your property more marketable.
  • Request names of service professionals to help you with anything from renovations to window washing - anytime.

The point is, you can't know what you don't know, and I'm happy to help you either dip your toe in the water or fling yourself off of the diving board, belly-flop style. You can even text me and say, "Look, I'm sure you're great at your job and all, but I just want to see the 1 bedroom, 1 bath condos that pop up for the next 5 years, and I don't want to be bothered all the time. If I need you, you'll know."


I would love to help you with your real estate journey.
