Colorado Ranks as Number 1 Economy in the US

Magnetism represents attractive or repulsive forces between physical objects. A state’s magnetic strength, on the other hand, involves forces attracting or repelling individuals and businesses to or from certain locations. Some individuals, for example, prefer tropical weather; others are repelled by snow. Many, however, are attracted by economic conditions and life style. Sunshine, mild temperatures, high-country playgrounds and resorts, and entertainment in front-range urban areas contribute to Colorado’s quality of life and magnetic pull.

Adjusting to Economic Terrain in 2017

Colorado’s economy is booming. The state’s unemployment rate was 3.2% in November with the Denver metro area at 2.9%.

Skiers accept risks when they negotiate terrain with higher moguls, deeper powder or steeper slopes than expected.

Update: Should I List My Home Now Or Wait?

I originally wrote this in December 2015 and thought the topic had relevancy given the season. Sellers often question the headache of selling a home during the holidays and/or winter. Of course each situation is different, but I often advise them to leave their home on the market because inventory is typically low during this season and there are many buyers still in search of homes. Below is my original blog from last year and several links to other blogs to give you some food for thought that may help you through your decision process:

I don’t know about you, but I’m really ready for a good old fashioned distraction this Thanksgiving--perhaps about the history of cranberries instead of politics. This election season was stressful for many and difficult to navigate for all. Families, friends and neighbors have argued and debated for months and now I’m hopeful America can break the wishbone together this week and remember we all have a lot to be thankful for.

Behind the Scenes: Lori Corken, Secret Reader

As a real estate broker in Denver suburbs, I am lucky to have a flexible schedule that allows me to visit classrooms around the area and be a secret reader. As a secret reader, I schedule time to visit a classroom, buy books for the teachers and children, and then then we all read the book together. I am thrilled to interact with the classroom and the children respond with excitement over reading with me. It's a win-win!

Original Art: A Statement of Luxury

There is nothing like original artwork to make a statement of luxury this holiday season and set yourself apart from the tired prints seen in most people’s homes. Denver’s established art scene has an active First Friday art walk in the multiple art districts in Denver. The large homes we have in the Colorado suburbs have great wall space for original art.
