 I’m excited to start our eight-part series about home repairs that you can’t afford to avoid. These home repairs are extremely important, so don’t skip them.

The first important repair is caulking. If you’re not a big home-repair person, caulking is the part that goes around the window frames, along the edges and seams of tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, around the chimney—caulking is everywhere.

Caulking prevents moisture from getting inside your property, which can cause major damage. Water can deteriorate a window, cause damage around your shower, tub, or sink, and more.

Regular maintenance and fresh caulking is invaluable to prevent you from having major repairs.


Caulking prevents moisture from getting inside your property and causing water damage.

Caulking can help when you paint a room, too. One of my friends shared this great trade secret: If you are taping off a room and using blue paint tape, add caulking along the ridge where the tape is going to define the line between colors. Caulking makes a smoother line than just using the tape alone.

So, don’t skip the caulking. Regularly update caulking around your appliances, tile, and windows.

Stay tuned for the second home repair that you should never avoid. In the meantime, give me a call or send me an email if you have any real estate questions. I would be happy to help you!

3 Steps to Make Your Home Stand Out to Buyers


There are three essential steps to follow if you want to sell your home for top dollar.

Call me at 303-974-9471 for a FREE home buying or selling consultation to answer any of your real estate questions.

In order to successfully sell your home for top dollar, there are three must-do steps to follow:
  1. Boost your curb appeal by painting. Curb appeal is the first thing that people notice when they come to visit your home. One of the cheapest things you can do to add value to your home is adding a fresh coat of paint. If you have an old, worn-out base color without any flow, we can repaint to give your home an entirely new feel.
  2. Revamp your landscaping. Seed your lawn to fill in dead spots, and add vibrant plants to give your yard a splash of color.
  3. Clean and declutter the interior. Minimalism is a big trend right now in interior design, so in addition to cleaning, also remove extra stuff from the home. This will make the place feel more open and allow the viewer to imagine themself living in the home.

One of the cheapest things you can do to add value to to your home is adding a fresh coat of paint.

In addition to these steps, we also have resources to help you stage the property. We provide this service for almost 50% of the houses that we sell. The Anderson Group can help you make your property, inside and out, look bright, fresh, and clean to appeal to any potential buyers coming through

If you have any questions about preparing your home for sale or anything else to do with real estate, feel free to reach out to me. There’s nothing more important to us than your success.

Why Do Real Estate Agents Charge Commission?


Why do real estate agents charge commission? The answer lies in the value our services bring to you.

Why do real estate agents charge a commission? 

In most cases, the one selling a home will be the one to pay a real estate agent’s commission. After all, the seller is the one using their resources to find a buyer for a home, and part of that includes paying for title insurance, loans, water, heating, and, yes, hiring a real estate agent.

In fact, one of the biggest expenses is actually hiring the professional that will help market, negotiate, and sell your home. Luckily, real estate is a commission-based business, so you don’t spend much money until the home actually closes.

Who you choose is critical. With the wrong person, you could be wasting a lot of time and they could be costing you thousands of dollars. Do they have the experience to accurately price your home? Do they have a team to help carry out the tasks associated with getting you to closing? Are they prepared to be available for you when you need them? 

With the wrong agent, you could be wasting a lot of time and they could be costing you thousands of dollars.

What is a job well-done worth to you? If you had to have surgery, would you draw a doctor's name out of a box or research doctors and look at online reviews to determine if they were the right pick for you?

Being in business for over 15 years, we have the experience of selling thousands of homes here in Denver with an average days on market of 20 days or less and a 98% sales-to-list price ratio. This year, we’ve even increased that ratio to 101%. 

Our team of eight is available at any moment during the transaction. The yard signs we put out direct people to call us on a recorded number so that we can get their information right there and then, after which one of our team members will be able to meet them at the house in 30 minutes or less.

The commission that we charge is the industry standard. We believe in giving you the best value for the lowest cost. With our team of highly specialized experts, we can help you make more money by selling your house at the highest possible price.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

How We Can Make Your FSBO Dreams a Reality


If selling your home on your own sounds like the right option for you, we’d like to encourage you in that decision. We’d like to assist you through our For Sale By Owner program.

Call me at 303-974-9471 for a FREE home buying or selling consultation to answer any of your real estate questions.

When it comes to those of you who are thinking of listing For Sale By Owner (or FSBO), I don’t blame you. I completely understand the connection with your property that comes from being a homeowner. 

No matter the reason you want to list on your own, there’s a FSBO program my team offers that can help. We totally support you in your decision, and we want to give you the tools to get things done. 

My team’s For Sale By Owner program allows us to help you market your property and find a buyer by giving you all of the marketing materials we would normally use when we represent sellers. 

On top of that, we’ll begin circle prospecting for you—without putting your home on the MLS. Instead, your property will be presented to buyers as what’s called a “pocket listing.” 

We want to help you get top dollar in the least amount of time and for the least amount of hassle.

If you find a buyer on your own, that’s fantastic. All we ask is that if we find the buyer for you, you allow us to cooperate with you in getting the property to the closing table. When we assist you in this kind of situation, we do so at a greatly reduced rate. 

Of course, there’s no charge at all if you find the buyer on your own. Either way, we hope you’ll give us a chance to help market your property for you. The bottom line is that we want to help you get top dollar in the least amount of time and for the least amount of hassle.
