It has been a busy month for Aspen4Sale. We are humbled to announce a handful of recent real estate transactions. These four real estate closings in Aspen are perfect examples of instances when I listended to my clients’ needs and worked tirelessly to make their wishlist a reality.
My top priority when working for a client is to listen. A client’s wants and needs are my absolute focus—whether I am representing a buyer or a seller. I work to make sure my clients’ best interests are at the heart of every Aspen4Sale deal.
Here are four recent transactions I am pleased to announce…
In the last month, we have closed on four fantastic properties. Representing two buyers and two sellers in these transactions, I am excited and humbled to announce a handful of recent success stories in the Aspen real estate market.
Working as the buyer’s agent, we just closed on two breathtaking Aspen properties. In one instance, my client came to me with a clearly defined wishlist. The buyer wanted an investment property. He was looking for a home at Aspen Highlands that allowed their growing family to live the Aspen lifestyle. Despite a slim pickings and a small inventory to choose from, I found exactly what this client was looking for in 105 Thunderbowl, and we closed in early April.
Another recent real estate transaction in Aspen that Aspen4Sale represented the buyer was for 930 West Francis. My client specifically wanted an investment property in the heart of Aspen, Colorado. In addition, this client wanted value in the home and was looking for that hard-to-find combindation of bang for your buck plus great central location. 930 West Francis met both criteria and we’re pleased to announce that property has officially closed.
I represented sellers in two recent closings as a the listing agent, too. On behalf of the seller, I just closed on 747 South Galena. The sellers listed their stunning home in the heart of downtown Aspen with Aspen4Sale because they were looking to move up into a larger home. In a short amount of time, Aspen4Sale succesfully brought a fantastic offer to the table and the listing closed early in April.
Located on a quiet cul-de-sac only 2 blocks from the Aspen Mountain gondola, this contemporary 3-story townhome was another quick transaction for Aspen4Sale. I represented the seller of 926 East Durant and worked hard to communicate and articulate the terrific location, beautiful views, and elegance of this listing for my client. Again, it took a very short amount of time to find the perfect buyer and close on this amazing property in Aspen for my client.
The real estate industry has a language and vocabulary all its own. Two terms that are important to understand relate to two different types of real estate brokerage relationships. You’ll often hear “buyer’s agent” and “seller’s agent” thrown around, but what do they both really mean?
Here are clear definitions for both. You will need to work with a real estate agent to find and purchase or list and sell your next property. Remember: Patricia Marquis at Aspen4Sale is a results-driven real estate agent in Aspen who specializes as a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent!
What is a Seller’s Agent?
There are two terms you’ll hear in a real estate transaction and both mean the same thing. A Seller’s Agent or Listing Agent is the broker who represents the seller in a real estate transaction. With specific fiduciary and confidentiality commitments to the seller of a property, a Seller’s Agent works on behalf of the seller’s interests with loyalty and fidelty.
A few roles that constitute a seller agent’s duty include negotiating on behalf of the seller and acting as an advocate of the seller. By law, the seller’s agent or listing agent must disclose known material facts about the seller’s property to to potential buyers.
What is a Buyer’s Agent?
A Buyer’s Agent is the broker in a real estate transaction who represents the buyer. The buyer’s agent owes confidentiality and fiduciary obligations to the buyer. Most often times, however, the seller is responsible for paying the Buyer’s Agent.
A buyer’s agent works on behalf of the buyer, negotiates representing the buyer, and acts as an advocate for the buyer. Just as a listing agent must disclose certain known material facts, the buyer’s agent must disclose certain things to potential sellers. Examples of things a buyer’s agent must disclose to a potential seller include the buyer’s ability to perform the financial terms of the transaction and—in residential transactions—if the buyer intends to occupy the property.
Every morning, like clockwork, I check the MLS before the sun rises over the Rocky Mountains to see if there are any new real estate listings in Aspen, Colorado. There are inherent ebbs and flows to the luxury real estate inventory in our town. And, every year, springtime is “listing season.” Sellers always opt to put their stunning Aspen homes on the market as the snow starts melting, the wildflowers begin to bloom, and we crescendo towards summer. As expected, a few gorgeous homes recently hit the Aspen real estate market. Here are three new, hot real estate listings in Aspen that were just added to the MLS.
