Beautiful Views from Horsetooth Mountain in Fort Collins, CO

Horsetooth RockI posted this picture to my Facebook page and several friends commented on how it reminded them of the movie Rocky.  Seems appropriate.  After all, from the top of Horsetooth Rock in Fort Collins you do have a spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains!

It’s going to be another beautiful weekend in Fort Collins.  Weather forecast shows that temperatures will be in the 60’s.  So if you haven’t planned anything yet, get outdoors and enjoy your Northern Colorado lifestyle!

Colorado Real Estate Contracts by Richard Jensen

If you are an investor I am sure you have come across books and seminars by Robert Kiyosaki, of Rich Dad Poor Dad.  The Rich Dad Education site includes a Learn to be Rich Blog offering tips and training to help you create wealth using real estate in both declining and appreciating markets.  A recent blog about Contract Fundamentals notes some important considerations for anyone entering into a real estate contract.

The Colorado Real Estate Commission has approved standard real estate contracts to be used by Realtors®.  They are reviewed by Colorado attorneys and updated each year.  As a buyer or seller you must remember that a Realtor® is not an attorney, so a real estate agent in Colorado simply "fills in the blanks" of the real estate contract.  It is always the responsibility of the buyer and seller to understand the contract and agree to its terms and conditions.

Colorado real estate contracts contain several contingencies giving a buyer a deadline by which to complete and agree to the condition of the property (property inspection), title review, loan conditions, current survey, and other factors affecting the transaction.  These dates and deadlines are clearly defined in the contract and the best real estate agents in Colorado will be able to help you understand your contractual obligations.
