While touring last week with Roger & Stephanie we rounded a corner and got right up close to… nature.  I think nature might have felt more comfortable with a little more distance between us.  But it was great.

Bargain Seekers

Published by under General Information

We all like a good bargain.  Who wouldn”t?  But do we always know a bargain when we see it???  

This week I had 2 different buyer tours of property.  Both clients were a real pleasure to work with.  We easily discussed some of the elements and signs of a real estate bargain.  Distinguishing price and value.  How does its price compare to similar properties. Is it a newer listing that is priced competitively or an older listing but with a recent price reduction?  How much price reduction and when?  What does value mean to you?

This morning I saw one of the better articles written on this very subject.  Tara at Trulia writes about the 7 insider secrets of bargain seekers.  And what to do and not to do when thinking about a bargain.  Check it out at http://www.trulia.com/blog/taranelson/2010/08/7_insider_secrets_for_bargain-seeking_house_hunters_1

Doris Tracy

Published by under General Information

Folks came out Tuesday to honor La Veta resident Doris Tracy.  She lived a wonderful 90 years and was buried here with full military honors.  During World War II Doris was one of the 1,000 women who served our country by volunteering  as a Women’s Airforce Service Pilot (WASP). Earlier this year she traveled from La Veta to Washington DC to be honored and receive the Congressional Gold Medal.  Since then, locals have discussed several projects that could recognize Doris and honor all our military aircorp WASP.

Few homes in La Veta can boast the views and landscapes of this classic home.  The Great Room allows family and guests room to lounge or play.  A great buy at $309,000.
