Other times, buyers have bought a house in another state and the closing process may be completely different. In this article, I’ll quickly explain what to expect at closing if you’re buying a home in Colorado.

Where are we closing?

12 Pros & Cons of Buying a Home in the WinterIf you ask most real estate agents about the best time to sell your house, you'll likely hear "in the spring and summer months.” In Colorado Springs, our real estate market's overall sales nearly double from winter to summer. For this reason, there is a big difference in sales between these times of the year.

This causes some people to think that the summer is the best time to buy or sell, but it's more complicated than that. A townhome downtown might not have a problem selling in the winter, while a 5-acre horse property may have little chance of selling.
