Colorado CoHo Home For Sale-Price Reduced

A month ago, I posted a notice about a home for sale in the Nyland CoHousing
Community outside of Boulder, Colorado. I'm the friend of and real estate
agent for the owners. They have decided to move out of the community and
closer to their work in Boulder. This notice is just an update to advise
interested parties that they still have the home on the market and have just
reduced the price to $204,650. I will repeat my original message at the
bottom of this one, for those of you who did not see it the first time.

In case you are interested, there has been a lot of interest and many serious
inquiries, both from sources provided by the members of Nyland themselves
(e.g. the "waiting list"); Bill Paiss of Rocky Mountain CoHousing (a selected
mailing list of interested people); and the Realtor community through the
MLS. The most serious potential buyer, who later decided not to do it after
extensive inquiry and thought, actually came from a Realtor. Potential
buyers, of course, do not count.

Anyone who shows even slightxxxxxxxxxxxx interest in the home is always
referred to the community's "Community Interface Committee" by me. My job is
helping people buy and sell homes, not educating them about CoHousing,
although obviously that must be a part of my job in this instance. I cannot
hope to do that in any way as thoroughly as an actual member of the
community, of course. I feel that I've got an excellent working relationship
with the "Comm Interface Comm," and although some hostility toward me is
evident from individuals in the community, it is hardly different from the
attitudes to be found among the general non-CoHo populace, and something
that, as a Realtor, I have gotten used to. I have a job to do here, and I
intend to do it and serve my clients well.

All of the preceeding is just some general response to various mumblings and
undercurrents generated from my previous posting. I watch the list and I keep
a low profile, but some of you may be interested in my experiences as a
professional trying to help some friends accomplish a goal. If so, I hope
this has been informative and feel free to contact me directly for more info.

What follows is information about the Nyland home from my original posting:
