Congratulations...and you suck! :flap:

Just kidding ya! Good luck and I hope you will be happy in your new home. Hopefully someday, I'll be in your shoes and will buy my own house. Until then, it's crappy apartment living for me!

Thanks. I got mine for $175,000, which was an absolute steal for the location, condition it's in and the square footage (2,300 sq. ft.). The median home price in the Denver metro area as a whole is around $230,000 (and that includes ritzy areas like Cherry Hills where people like Pat Bowlen, Elway and Shanahan have their houses). From what HTG has told me, home prices are pretty expensive here in relation to Pittsburgh, but they're not so bad compared to places like New York or California. I'd say nationally speaking, we're about the middle of the road pricewise, from what I've seen and heard.

Cograts on the new digs! We are looking at a few places, too. We downgraded a little too far a few years ago and are looking for a good deal in the current market.

Have you got that Steelers room planned yet? :thumbsup:

Thanks. It's definitely a buyer's market right now, so now's the time to be looking if you want to buy. The basement is fully finished, so that's going to be the new Steelers room. I have to start beefing up my memorabilia collection now. :thumbsup:

We've been doing that this winter in anticipation. I had our autographed James Harrison picture and picture of us with him framed and matted at Hobby Lobby. We also aquired an autographed Ryan Clark picture of the of McGahee hit framed and matted, too. (very cool!) We have 2 pencil sketch prints, one of Troy and one of Lambert that need done up. (they are very nice prints and reasonably priced at $19.99and if anyone wants the link to get one, PM me. He has one of the Santonio superbowl catch and he told me he's working on a Ben sketch to be released by the end of the year.)

Hubby is working on another autograph opportunity. If that one happens, I'll be posting a pic..........it will make you all green with envy! :chuckle:

Yep, first house and it's got a BIG yard. Considering how dry Colorado is in general, I am thinking about xeriscaping (http://coloradowaterwise.org//index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=88&Itemid=145) the whole thing at some point, but that costs $$$$$, and I'm going to be light on that for a while due to all the expenses of moving. But I anticipate staying put for a LONG time, so there's time for that. And the previous owner was nice enough to leave a gas-powered lawn mower behind.

Congrats man! Here's to many happy years in your new castle.

Yep, I'm "lord of the manor." :chuckle:

Actually, my father turned me on to this company that provides "home warrantys (http://www.ahswarranty.com/homeowners/homewarranty101/homewarranty101.html)." For a $600 premium per year, if anything, and I mean ANYTHING, needs repaired, they will send a qualified professional for the job to your home and perform the repair for a $55 service fee. My father got what would have been a $600-$700 repair job done on his garbage disposal for $55 that way. And I'll need it as I'm not handy. :thumbsup:
