Are You Seeing Everything There is to See?

Most people begin their real estate search online these days. It makes sense that people would want easy tools that could give them facts about their home or other properties right away with no commitment. Information is plentiful, but separating the wheat from the chaff can be more challenging. No, I'm not going to rant about any public real estate sites. They are here to stay, though it's important that we understand their place in the real estate firmament. If you would like to see my more expanded opinion, you can check out this post.

You probably know that the local MLSs feed information to other public real estate websites, sometimes very quickly, sometimes not. You may not know that sellers on the MLS can choose for their homes NOT to be listed on some of these properties, for a variety of reasons. This means you can't always be sure that you are seeing all of the homes for sale unless you have access to the MLS directly.

Another snag - the Boulder MLS and Denver MLS haven't been playing very nicely together. Due to a failed buyout attempt, they have decided not to share information with each other. This means that real estate agents have to set up property searches for their clients twice. And because there is overlap in the service areas for both MLSs and some of us agents belong to both, clients are often getting duplicate emails and properties. Frustrating and time wasting for everyone, and it doesn't look like it's going to get resolved anytime soon.

Staufer Team to the rescue! In order to provide the best customer service we can, we have purchased a website that combines all of the listings from both MLSs. Even better, our clients can login, look for houses, and save properties searches themselves. They can mark their favorites, make notes and request showings directly through the site. One stop shop.


How do you find this dream come true? Login to robbin.viewboulderareahomes.com. Despite the name, it'll show you properties from Julesburg to Durango. It's never too early to get to know the market, and I won't bug you (too much) ;)

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.
