So, you are getting ready to put your house up for sale.  Awesome!  In Denver's hot market, you can sell your house for top dollar - but don't get too overconfident. If your house doesn't look or feel good to potential Buyers, your home could be sitting on the market longer than you'd think.

The first rule when selling your home is to separate your emotions and personal stuff and start thinking like a Buyer.

Whether you’re in Park Hill, Congress Park, Sloan’s Lake, or Montclair, I’m sure you’ve been enjoying our unseasonably warm, sunny weather here in Denver.  Naturally, the warm temps are bound to get your green thumb a little itchy, and there are some things that it is ok to do at this point in the season.  

I reached out to my friend, Patrick Kramer with Karma Fine Gardening to get his expertise on the matter.  Despite the beautiful weather, you should really hold off on planting any annuals until after Mother’s Day.  This is Colorado, and we’re still bound to experience some freezing temperatures and snow between now and then.  But if you really can’t help yourself, you can always plant some pansies.  According to Patrick, “they love the cool weather
