This home is in Harmony, and is expected to be completed in mid-September.    It is a ranch with three bedrooms and an office, and no basement.    This couple decided they would prefer absolutely no stairs, and have a home they can "age gracefully" in.     It is a very open floor plan, and a beautiful kitchen!    They love the fireplace and 3-car garage.    They plan for no grass in the backyard, but maybe turf and some bushes/flowers.  Congrats to these buyers!

As part of the City of Aurora's commitment to public safety, the Aurora Police Department launched a City Council-approved photo speed enforcement pilot program.  The goal of this new program is to make the city's roadways safer for all road users. Prior to the conclusion of the program in August 2024, an analysis will be conducted to determine the effectiveness and impact of the program and if it should be adopted on a permanent basis. Photo enforcement vehicles are typically located in residential areas, where the speed limit is 35 mph or less, school zones, streets that border municipal parks, and work zones.  Photo enforcement vehicles will park in the open, and signage will be paced ahead to warn motorists of the enforcement zone, in accordance with state law.  Fines from citations...

With a short close date (less than 2 weeks), there was A LOT to go through, since there was severe hail damage that needed to be addressed.   With so many homeowners getting new roofs/gutters and painting, contractors are very busy, and sometimes cannot get done prior to a closing.    Most of all the repairs were completed, with the exception of the painting, and the buyer got a reduction in price to enable him to get his own painter.The location, the house, and the neighbors are all exactly what he was looking for, and this home will work for their family so well.    I look forward to hearing from him over the next few months on their move, renovations, etc.   Congratulations to my buyer and his extended family and know this was the right home for them!List Price:   $650,000          S...
