Renovating Your Denver Home to Sell Boosts Resale Value

By Barry Kunselman | Porchlight Real Estate Group | 303.88.0588 | Contact Barry

How Much Will You Get Back If You Renovate?

To Get Top Dollar For Your Home You Need To Renovate

Every Denver Metro homeowner wants to get the maximum value when selling a home. But how do you ensure you get the best price? Should you renovate or sell as is?

I recently helped a seller renovate a 2 bedroom townhome in Lakewood. Sold as is we would have received $230K. With $7K investment into carpet, laminate flooring and paint we received multiple offers. The highest offer came at $277K but we decided to take the offer for $265,500 because the buyer was willing to cover the cost if the appraisal came in low. 27% return on money. 

Here are some things you should consider before deciding to renovate or sell as is:


Unless you absolutely have no money or you can't afford mortgage payment and the home is going into foreclosure, I always recommend some updates before selling. Small projects can pay off big. New carpets and a fresh coat of paint do wonders to improve the appearance of a home and its overall appeal to buyers. I would never recommend to redo a kitchen & bathroom completely as this would be pricey and would not give 100% return of your investment. 

Before you ever spend a dollar or lift a hammer you have to evaluate if you and your family can handle a renovation. If you remain living in your home while you are renovating, then you will be faced with some level of chaos. Certain personality types do not do well with chaos. There will dust and displaced household items and unfinished walls, drywall and flooring. What would you be willing to sacrifice to get your home move in ready?


9475 W UUtah Before & After Kitchen

As a seller, you might think that the buyers would want to select his own carpet and decide on paint colors. They do. So why do you need to update?

90% of homebuyers are looking at homes online so it is incredibly important the photos of the home look good and accurately display the home. Your home cannot look like a dump if you want to get the best price for it. To make more money, you have to get it to move-in ready condition. People need to see how it's going to look when they live there so make sure it's attractive and appealing.

Because most buyers are using the majority of their savings for the down payment they are more likely to pay more for a home that is move in ready than purchase a home at a lower price and spend thousands of dollars fixing it up.


Establish the budget. As a realtor I advise my selling clients on improvements and renovations that would maximize the home's appeal while working within the seller's home improvement budget.

I also offer to help hire contractors and monitor/oversee renovations. Majority of realtors do not offer this value added service to home seller clients. I provide this service because the house will sell quicker and I enjoy it. It's fun to take an old outdated home and make it shine.

My clients trust me because I know the best people for the job. My contractors are affordable and reliable and not overpriced. If my clients were to find contractors online they are going to pay a premium for the contractor which will affect their bottom dollar.  


9475 W Utah

Once the seller has established a budget, it is time to it is time to create a list of things that need updating and to find out approximately what those cost. This renovation checklist can help you get a clear picture and identify the areas that need work.

Maybe the house has not been painted in the last 10 years and there is wallpaper on the walls, or the carpet looks frayed and dirty. Kitchen and bathrooms are make or break for buyers when touring a home. It is important not to overlook its condition. Since an up-to-date kitchen helps entice homebuyers, money you spend in this space can usually be expected to find its way back into your wallet.

If there is not enough money to replace carpet in the whole house we can put my seller's money into deep cleaning or updating outdated light fixtures. My aim is to maximize the budget as best as I can. We want to make the home as turnkey as possible within the budget.


Simple renovations and updates can run from 2 -to 3 weeks. If seller is out of town I take photos of the work that has been done. The photos can be a wonderful way to show the steps the contractor did to complete the job which could help down the road. There may be some clues in these photos that show what could have gone wrong. It is also an excellent way to keep everyone honest and to keep the quality high. These are also wonderful memories for later.

Advice to Home Sellers:

Before selling your Denver Metro home, make sure you understand the current market conditions in your neighborhod by talking to a knowledgeable realtor. Look at the competition in your price range to see how they stack up to you home. Check with your realtor which renovations will give the most bang for your buck. Making the right decision about your renovation project will ensure that your home will attract more homebuyers and get you the best price.

Not Sure If It's The Right Time to Buy or Sell? Test Drive The Market

Barry Kunselman | 303.887.0588 | Contact Barry  

I have had a handful of phone calls recently from people about getting into the real estate market this year. They're not really sure. There's a lot of stuff they're hearing from the media and their friends of their current buying and selling experience, so they are curious. Is this the year they are going to buy or sell?




Your friends and family will have your best interest at heart, but they may not be fully aware of your needs and what is currently happening in the real estate market. Real estate conditions in your neighborhood of choice may differ from blended reports that you see on the news. 


I am offering a program right now if you want to test drive the market. Give me a call, whether you or somebody you know, essentially if you are just curious what the homebuying process looks like. We will sit down, review different neighborhoods. I have a client going out today doing the exact same thing. She is not one hundred percent sure she is going to buy this year but we are going to explore different neighborhoods she is interested in in her price point and circle back in a few months to see if this is a good year for her to get into the real estate market.


Reason To Own A HomeI get this question a lot from people regarding mortgage: What does the downpayment look like these days? A lot of buyers think it is twenty percent down but there are a ton of great programs right now at 3%, 3.5%, 5%, 10% and 20%. If you have questions about these loan programs, give me a call at 303.887.0588.

Home values are up. With prices increasing each month, it might cost you more if you wait until next year to buy. Your down payment will also need to be higher in order to account for the higher price of the home you wish to buy. Mortgage rates, though still historic lows, are expected to go up. What does owning a home mean to you? What non-financial benefits will you and your family gain from owning a home? Only you and your family will know for certain if it is truly the right time to buy.


I have a handful of sellers that have recently purchased in the past couple of years that are sitting on a decent amount of equity and are thinking about moving that equity into either a larger home, possibly a better school district. I even have one client who is considering moving to Evergreen and getting away from the city. If that's you, I would love to help you out.

Average Equity Gain Per Homeowner June 2015- June 2016


A lot of my sellers come to me and say "I know I can sell my house but how am I going to purchase another house with the market being the way it is?". Most of my sellers are  selling and moving to a slightly larger home and higher pricepoint. First of all, you are sitting in a ton of equity than some of the buyers in that price point. Everytime you move up a price point the competition is less intense. Move up sellers buying a home in the uper price range have a better time at finding a house than they might anticipate. 


CoreLogic predicts that US home prices will appreciate by another 5% by this time next year. Experts predict Denver home price appreciation at around 8-9%. If you are a Metro Denver homeowner looking to take advantage of your home equity by moving up to your dream home, let's get together to discuss your options!

Denver Restaurant Week in 2017- Feb 24 to March 5

Barry Kunselman | 303.887.0588 | Contact Barry 

The 13th annual Denver Restaurant Week, a ten day stretch that takes place from February 26 through March 6 is upon us. Denver Restaurant Week is a celebration of the culinary scene in Denver. Participating restaurants will offer a multi-course dinner for some very tasty prices: $25, $35 or $45 depending on menu. 

Invite Denver Resto Week

When Denver Restaurant Week started in 2005, dinner was priced at $52.80 per couple and remained that way until 2014; in 2016, as in the previous two years, dinner is a flat $30 for one. This year, event organizer Visit Denver offered dinner for one at $25, the lowest ever offered for the event, below the $26.40 set in its first nine years.

Richard Scharf, president and CEO of Visit Denver, said the number and varieties of restaurants have grown over the past 13 years, since the event was created.

"We wanted the pricing structure to reflect the entire culinary scene," Scharf said. "The low-, mid- and higher-range options allowed the flexibility for even more restaurants to participate, and the prices make it easy for diners to experience more of everything that Denver has to offer."

Experience more of everything that Denver has to offer. Give your tastebuds a gourmet treat at your favoritte restaurant or try the amazing menu selection at emerging hotspots The participating restaurants are spread throughout metro Denver and offer a wide variety of choices, including American, Asian, Brazilian, Caribbean, barbecue, contemporary, brew pubs and more.

Are Metro Denver’s Home Prices Overvalued?

Barry Kunselman | 303.88.0588 | Contact Barry

Buying a home is one of the most important financial decision that you will make. However, Denver Metro area homebuyers are experiencing extremely tough times purchasing a home due to low inventory which turns to bidding wars and further escalates home prices. Porchlight Real Estate statistics show that year over year Denver home prices for single detached homes have been increasing by an average of 9% since 2013. The figure is even higher for condos/townhouses. 

After making predictions about  2017 Denver Housing Market Trends, I wanted to take a moment to address this homebuyer question:

Are Metro Denver’s Home Prices Overvalued?

As early as 2015, Denver real estate was reported as one of the most overvalued in the US. An overvalued housing market is defined as having home prices that are 10% or more above the long-term sustainable level.

Last week the Denver Post posted published an article stating that Arch Mortgage Insurance Index study shows Denver’s home prices are more overpriced than any time since the 1980’s. However the article itself does cite that economists think Denver and Colorado home prices will likely NOTdecrease in the next 2 years.

How Bad Is It?

In Q3 2016, Colorado home values are about 15 percent above where they should be given income gains, making the state one of the most overvalued after North Dakota and Texas. But like metro Denver, the state as a whole faces only a 2 percent chance of a home price index decline over the next two years versus a 5 percent chance of a decline nationally, according to Arch MI.

 Top overvalued areas in Colorado per Arch Index Estimate in the third quarter of 2016:

  • Denver - 22.1% 
  • Boulder - 16% 
  • Fort Collins - 15.6%



Job losses, shrinking incomes, out-migration and overbuilding are among the ingredients that can trigger price declines, but those aren’t evident in metro Denver. Colorado is in fact expected to be in the top 10 cities for economic growth in 2017.  

Does It Matter?

Last year, if you read national news like CNN you will have the perception the housing market is on the verge of a market correction. However our local news and other economist feel the Denver market is still strong with potentially another 8-10% home appreciation this year. If interests rates increase home prices may slow but the market will still be strong.

“Much of the price increases we are seeing are the result of rising demand among investors and homebuyers for a still-limited supply of homes for sale,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic.


  • If you're planning to live in a home for a long time, for example, you may be willing to pay a bit more.
  • If it's cheaper to buy a house than to rent one, then whether your housing market is overpriced will be less of a concern.
  • If, on the other hand, you're getting into real estate as an investment (or you hope to resell within a few years), you'll care a lot more about what's happening in your housing market. The be successful in real estate it's not "timing the market" but "time in the market". The longer you hold on to your investment the more you will make over time.  If you are planning buying a home in the next 2-3 years it is better to buy now than waiting for prices to increase with interests rates.


In general, however, if you're ready to buy your Denver home and can comfortably afford to do so, then go ahead — interest rates are low and it may yet be possible to score a great deal. Want to know the best strategy in purchasing a home? Give me a call at 303.887.0588. I would love to help you out with tough questions.

2017 Denver Housing Market Trends

Barry Kunselman | 303.887.0588 | Contact Us  

2017 Denver housing Market Forecast

 Happy New Year! Hope everybody had a wonderful holiday. According to data released by Recolorado, Denver's Multiple Listing Service, 2016 Denver Front range housing sales is highest on record. Last year broke record highs and lows. In July, we hit an all-time high for the average sold price of a home at $420,178 and median sold price at $365.000. February brought us a record low for month -end inventory of 3.963. Compare that to our all-time high of 31.989 in July of 2006. The 2016 housing market was driven by historically low inventories, high demand and affordability concerns for many buyers.

What will the Denver Metro Real Estate Market Look like in 2017?


How much will housing prices rise in 2017?

We are expecting another great year for Metro Denver real estate. U.S. News and World Report named Denver the best place to live and Zillow ranking the Denver market #9 for next year with 3.6% home value appreciation. Possibly expect Denver home prices to rise by up to 8-9% because we still have high buyer demand and low inventory.

Housing Predictions:

“Looking to 2017, the Denver area market is showing signs of prices starting to moderate and inventory levels improving.” - Kirby Slunaker, REcolorado.

CoreLogic, a leading provider of consumer, financial and property information, predicts that the recent rise in mortgage rates and the expectation of higher rates in 2017 could slow home price gains in 2017.

Will there be new Denver condos in 2017?

There is a chance the Colorado builder defect law will change making it more appealing for builders to build affordable condos. Right now the law that was put into place makes it difficult because of high insurance rates and the liability put on the builder. Both Colorado Democrats and Republicans will work together this year to fix this law making it easier for builders to build condos and still protect the consumer from builder defects.  This would increase the amount of affordable housing, making it easier to live in and around out growing city.

Advice to Homebuyers

What I have noticed over the last 3 years is that from February to around July prices generally increase every week. Demand increases every week until we get to April. The longer you wait, the more you are going to pay and the more complications you'll have. 

Denver Average Sales Price

"[I see] mortgage rates getting much closer to 5 percent at the end of next year.” - Mark Fleming, the Chief Economist at First American

Mortgage rates are rising but still at relatively low vs historical averages and is expected to remain under 4.5% for a 30-year fixed rate. 

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announced Monday a cut in FHA mortgage insurance annual premiums. This is great news to FHA homebuyers closing on their new home on or after the 27th of January since rising mortage interest rates have made it more expensive to buy home. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has lowered annual premiums by 25 basis points which could save the average buyer who gets a 30-year fixed-rate $200,000 mortgage about $500 a year in payments.

If you are thinking of purchasing a home under $400k , I would highly recommend getting on the market sooner than later.

Advice to Homesellers

With rising home prices, more homeowners are recovering from negative equity and find that they are able to sell their home. When you are moving up, selling your current home then buying a  larger home, you might want to wait until early April when demand is extremely high. You can find a buyer who is willing to let you look 2-3 months for your replacement home, giving you time to get everything together and not rush in the process.
