"Kathy was a wonderful agent to work with. She was always available to answer all of our questions. Every suggestion she made to get the house ready to put on the market paid off. Her friendly personality and obvious professionalism makes it easy to highly recommend her." - BK

"Kathy provided knowledgeable and top quality real estate services as my realtor. As an out of state client with duties to sell an estate, she went above and beyond assisting me with the sale of the house. Kathy knew the answers to all my questions. There were many times that I could not be in town to take care of specific details and she stepped in offering her time to help. She was professional and prompt with communication and paperwork so the sale could proceed in a timely manner. All of Kathy's time and efforts helped to ease the stress of having to sell a house long distance. She is truly interested and genuinely cares about her clients and has their best interest at heart. It was a pleasure to work with her and I would highly recommend Kathy Tutko to take care of your real estate needs." - CB

Pikes Peak Region Real Estate Report for March 10, 2019

Sellers: Price Your Home for the Market

3/9/2019


Ever wonder what happens to properties with overly optimistic sellers? This is a fine example of what not to do.

Michael Jackson's Neverland  is a  2,700-acre property which  boasts a French Normandy-style 12,598-square-foot main residence, two guest houses, a lake, a 50-seat movie theatre, a tennis court, a 14-foot lagoon-style pool, a barn, and a Disney-themed train station.

It was originally listed for $100 million in 2015 and discounted to $67 million two years later. 

It has been rebranded as Sycamore Valley Ranch and was recently re-introduced to the market at $31 million, less than half its previous asking price! 

This property has been on the market for four years despite millions of dollars in renovations, price cuts, and a new name. It's an amazing property as you can see from the Zillow ad. But was it worth $100 million? No. $67 million? No. $31 million? We'll see. Meanwhile, the bills keep coming. 

Moral of the story? Price your home for the market. Pikes Peak Home Team can help you do that - give us a call - we'll get it sold, not just listed.

Why You Don't Want to Skip that Buyer Consultation!

3/4/2019


Don't be part of that 'Seventh Circle of Hell'  - Don't Skip that Buyer Consultation!

As a team, we are happy and proud to help buyers of all types, including first time home buyers! It is part of our job and an obligation to help our buyers to be as informed as possible. The free, no obligation buyer's consultation is an essential step in that process. Even as a seasoned buyer, we recommend taking advantage of our consult and discover how things have changed and help us learn more about you and your preferences and needs. The consultation generally only takes about an hour. We will sit down with you in front of the computer, create a personalized web page search, review the most recent contracts and we can even help walk you through that loan pre-qualification process. As a buyer, you don't want to be caught unaware or uninformed like some other buyers have been.

Click here to check out this recent article about a few buyers that felt caught in the 'seventh circle of hell' during their buying process. It is our goal to save you all from that feeling! Let us help you become an informed, well-prepared buyer.
