Tips to Improve Your Home Security

  • Plan to "burglarize" yourself. You'll discover any weaknesses in your security system that may have previously escaped your notice.

  • Change all the locks when you move into a new house or if you lose your keys.

  • For the most effective alarm system, conceal all wiring. A professional burglar looks for places where they can disconnect the security system.

  • Your house should appear occupied at all times. Use timers to switch lights and radios on and off when you're not at home.

  • If you have a faulty alarm that frequently goes off, get it fixed immediately and tell your neighbors

Things to consider in a real estate transaction.

While there's no surefire way to eliminate all of the potential challenges that may arise, being aware of them and making good preparations in advance can make them much easier to manage.


 

1. Unclear goals.  Having a home picked out without clear goals will just confuse and frustrate you. It's like finding your dream home with no idea how much you can afford. After all, if you don't know what your intended

Winter in Colorado

Winter makes The Mile High City sparkle. There's plenty of snowy fun this year, from a Winter Brew Fest to a rare winter concert at Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater.

Denver is also the world's largest après ski town. It's a great place to gear up and find deals before you hit the higher Rocky Mountains of Colorado. You can even ride a ski train from the city to the slopes via the Winter Park Express.

The Edgewater Neighborhood

A Community Rich in History

Edgewater is nestled between the cities of Denver, Wheat Ridge and Lakewood.  It offers a unique small town atmosphere within minutes of the downtown Denver area.  The community provides a quality of life enjoyed by past and present generations.

The history of Edgewater, Colorado is closely tied to the development of Sloans Lake.  The lake was created in 1861 when Thomas Sloan, hoping to farm the area, dug a well that overflowed and flooded 200 acres.  The City's name 'Edgewater' was derived from its proximity to the water's edge.  The formation of the lake initially attracted a few fisherman and ice-cutters to the area.  However, it wasn't until the 1887 establishment of Fort Logan that
