Thistle Community Housing Partners with Esusu to advance credit-building and economic opportunities for its renters

BOULDER (May 20)– Thistle Community Housing (Thistle) announced today a new partnership with Esusu, the leading financial technology company leveraging rent reporting for credit-building, to make Esusu’s rent reporting platform available to Thistle’s Family of Affordable Renters, nearly 600 individuals and families.

Esusu reports on-time rent payments to the three major credit bureaus (Equifax, Transunion, and Experian) to establish and boost credit scores for residents, and those with a positive rental payment history could see immediate results as the platform has an automatic 24-month lookback feature. The partnership would also allow residents the opportunity to access Esusu’s 0% rent stability program, which helps those at risk of missing a rental payment.

“Our Vision at Thistle is to assist moderate and lower-income individuals and families by developing a pipeline of affordable rental and homeownership housing and creating economic opportunities and wealth building for all residents in Boulder County. Esusu is helping us achieve this vision,” said Paul D’Angelo, CEO

at Thistle.

“This partnership with Thistle is designed to help residents across the country build healthier financial futures through rent reporting,” said Samir Goel and Wemimo Abbey, co-founders and co-CEOs of Esusu. “Thistle’s commitment to economic opportunity for their residents, who Thistle sees as partners, made them a natural partner in our mission to create equitable financial access for everyone.”

In addition to earning credit improvement, renters will have access to the Esusu Renters Marketplace, where they have the opportunity to access other financial literacy and credit education courses to help support their path to financial independence and success.  Thistle has also added a Resource Section on their website, including a Future Homeownership Guide, to help interested individuals and families achieve their dream of affordable homeownership. resident-resources

The Group Real Estate launches Windsor location

WINDSOR – On May 29, The Group Inc. Real Estate opened its eighth office by launching a new Windsor location – at 517 Main Street – another strategic move by The Group to respond to the changing demographics of Northern Colorado.

“The Group always wants to be a leader and get in front of the current trends,” explained The Group President Brandon Wells. “It was recently announced that Windsor is Colorado’s fastest-growing municipality, with its population growing 23.3% over the past three years – a fact that even further validates our decision to bring our locally owned services to town.”

The Windsor office is The Group’s second location to adopt the mobile agent model (following the Timnath office that opened in 2021). The 1,250-square-foot space, previously occupied by State Farm, will feature 21st-century technology and be hosted by a head concierge Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“The successful Timnath office was built with the modern, more mobile Realtor in mind and will be a model The Group uses as it expands,”

Wells said.

By expanding its presence in Weld County, The Group is preparing for the future of Northern Colorado. In addition to Windsor, growth in southwest Weld County has contributed to making it the fastestgrowing county on the Front Range. Weld experienced 8.4% population growth between July 2020 and July 2023, based on the latest U.S. Census report.

The new office in Windsor and the expansion of services in Weld County are also associated with a

broader growth strategy. As part of this strategy, The Group decided earlier this year to consolidate offices in Fort Collins, including closing the Horsetooth Road office.

Appointments with a Group Realtor can be made at the Windsor office seven days a week by visiting or calling 970.223.0700.

Along with the Windsor location, The Group has two offices in Fort Collins, two in Loveland, one in Timnath, and two in the Steamboat Springs area.

This city

With fewer people moving across state lines, and population growth slowing, places within Colorado will have to compete harder with each other to attract new residents.

But where can future residents find the biggest bang for the buck?

Grand Junction, Littleton and Loveland are the top three spots in Colorado, according to a new ranking from USA Today Homefront.

Denver and Aurora rank near the bottom, while Boulder and Colorado Springs make the top 10.

Homefront, after surveying Texas and Florida, looked at 21 municipalities and one censusdesignated place, Highlands Ranch, with a population of 40,000 or more in Colorado. Each location was scored on 16 metrics including crime rate, quality of schools, walkability, health care access, risk of natural disasters, housing affordability and the availability of restaurants and activities.

“We wanted to provide homeowners

with the best recommendations about where to move if they wanted to move,” said Hailey Ness, a researcher at Homefront.

Grand Junction scored highly for housing affordability, health care access, a mild climate and plentiful activities and restaurants. The Western

Slope city held its own on crime and school district quality. Homefront labeled it as one of Colorado’s “bestkept secrets.”

“The Grand Junction area is a gem not just in Colorado, but nationally. We feel like we as a community have done an incredible job in diversifying

our economy,” said Curtis Englehart, executive director of the Grand Junction Economic Partnership.

A milder climate and the state’s second-highest per capita concentration of primary care providers make the region attractive

Volunteer judges rate entries based on their improved performance, flavor, disease resistance and other unique qualities related to their performance in gardens and containers.

Like other celosias, this variety is heat-, humidity- and drought-tolerant. Grow it in a container or garden bed in a sunny location. Grow plenty, as you will want to pick a few to add to summer bouquets and dried arrangements.

Siam Gold marigold is another season-long bloomer that thrives in full sun and tolerates heat and drought. The 3- to 4-inch double flowers top 18-20″ tall plants that do not need staking. Purchase transplants or extend your planting budget by starting these seeds right in the garden.

Interspecific Solarscape XL Pink

Jewel impatiens offers a tropical look and feel to full and partly sunny locations. You’ll enjoy flowers all season long, as well, as this plant has superior disease resistance, including resistance to downy mildew disease.

The bright pink flowers with yellow throat held up through heat and rain. Grow these in containers, hanging baskets and garden beds.

Sweetheart Kisses verbena adds a vibrant mix of red, rose, pink and a bit of white to full and partly sunny spots

in your landscape. The airy foliage creates a nice backdrop for the flowers. Use it as an annual groundcover, edger in a flower bed or mixed border or in a container alone or mixed with other annuals. Then watch for the butterflies and bees stopping by the flowers.

Big EEZE Pink Batik geranium’s unique pink and white mosaic blooms perform as well as other members of the Big EEZE series. The plant produces an abundance of flowers of equal size and coloration. It performed well in full to partial sun in containers and garden beds.

June is Homeownership Month! The benefits of homeownership

In 2024, homeownership is more important than ever before in the U.S. We live in a world that pressures us to rent everything – and love it. Think about it: we can rent a scooter to get around, we can use an app for car rides, we can rent clothing, we can rent workspace, we can rent a first-time apartment – and we can even rent a “forever” home.

Build-to-rent is a concept that is taking place across the country. As you drive down Highway 36 to Denver, you see so many complexes that look like they would be condos – but they’re apartment buildings. Builders and investment groups have discovered it is better for them to build and rent rather than build and sell. This movement is now making its way into single-family homes. In many cases right now, by the time the builder finishes the construction on the home, the cost of the home will be more than the contracted price. Supply chain issues and the cost of labor have increased so much while they are building the house that it is difficult to sell at a profit. So why not keep it and rent it? In some communities, investment groups own a high percentage of what would be first-time homes and have decided to rent them rather than list them in the for-sale housing market.

Yet studies by the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) have shown for years that the net worth of homeowners has always surpassed that of renters. All that being said, it is more important to own your own home than ever before.

National Homeownership Week started in 1995 under President Bill Clinton with the purpose of increasing homeownership across America. In 2002, President George W. Bush expanded the program to an entire month.

Historically, June is one of the busiest months for real estate activity, so much so that the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) has celebrated June as Homeownership Month for many years. This year, with housing inventory shortages at the lowest level in many decades, becoming a homeowner has become more challenging.  A few more homes are coming on the market with COVID-19 fears easing, but the outlook is that the record-low supply

“A number of research studies have shown that homeownership provides social and societal benefits. Not only is home ownership one of the best ways to build long-term wealth, providing resources for a more comfortable retirement, but it also fosters an immeasurable sense of community and stability vital to growing families.”

will continue.  In the first quarter of 2024, the U.S. Census Bureau reported the homeownership rate in the U.S. was 65.6%. Since 2000, the homeownership rate has been within a few percent points of this rate every year. The National Association of Realtors® works hard to keep homeownership at a high level.

“Homeownership Matters” has been an overarching theme of the National Association of Realtors®, but especially during Homeownership Month. NAR reports that “A number of research studies have shown that homeownership provides social and societal benefits. Not only is homeownership one of the best ways to build long-term wealth, providing resources for a more comfortable retirement, but it also fosters an immeasurable sense of community and stability vital to growing families.”

NAR’s “Social Benefits of Homeownership and Stable Housing” report reveals that homeowners are happier and healthier. They tend to vote more, volunteer more, and contribute more to their neighborhoods. Homeowners do not move as frequently as renters, which encourages more neighborhood stability, and children of homeowners are more likely to participate in organized activities and spend less time in front of the television.

Why home ownership matters

• Equity build up

Over time, through both strong and weak economic conditions, the value of a home in most markets across the country has increased. In the U.S., we are blessed with financing, which enables people to buy a home with relatively small down payments and a 30-year amortizing loan. When increasing home values are combined with a principal loan balance, which drops each month, you build equity. This accrual of equity directly contributes to the wealth and financial stability of homeowners.

• Tax incentives

The interest paid on a mortgage creates a tax deduction, with limits, on a taxpayer’s return.  Property taxes paid, with limitations, are also deductible. These two tax deductions help lower the expense of purchasing a home.

• Neighborhood pride Homeowners take pride in their neighborhood. They tend to be more involved in the community when they have an ownership stake. Homeowners are the bedrock of any thriving community.

National Association of Realtors® Homeownership Matters campaign

NAR and its members are dedicated to helping more Americans become homeowners.   Millions of people have used the resources available from NAR to learn about buying a home and staying informed about the issues of homeownership. You can learn about the resources at   As a homeowner, you have the power to influence policies that are created to protect homeownership. You can stay informed about these policies and how to strengthen your community by clicking on the “Stay Informed” link on the website above.   Contact your Realtor® for expert help in purchasing a home.

When it comes to selling your home, rst impressions are everything. at’s why curb appeal — the initial impression a prospective homebuyer gets from the exterior of your home — is so crucial. It’s not just about making your home look nice; it’s about increasing its selling price and reducing the time it spends on the market.

Studies have shown that investing in landscaping can add substantial value to your home, with some estimates suggesting increases of up to 20%. However, not all landscaping projects are created equal, and it is essential to focus on projects that provide the best return on investment (ROI) while avoiding potential pitfalls.

According to research by e University of Texas at Arlington, curb appeal can enhance a home’s value by up to 7%, and during weaker markets, this gure can rise to 14%. Moreover, the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) suggests that professional landscaping can increase a home’s price by 15 - 20%.

But what landscaping projects deliver the highest ROI? For starters, the ASLA advises that spending on yard improvements should not exceed 10-20% of the home’s value. Projects that add exterior living space and o er low-maintenance beauty tend to provide optimal value. Conversely, landscaping that appears highmaintenance or too specialized may deter potential buyers.

e pathway leading to your home’s front door is the rst area prospective homebuyers notice, followed by the

features in the backyard that frame the home’s interior ambiance. Investing in these areas can yield signi cant returns. To get you started, the following are the landscaping projects recommended by the ASLA.

A sophisticated landscape design is the most sought-after feature homebuyers seek. But trees are a close second — especially mature trees. While it is more costly to plant a tree than a shrub, a tree requires less maintenance after it is established. It provides shade, bird habitat, and that all-important curb appeal factor.

Adding a deck expands your outdoor living space and adds value to your home. is hardscaping feature expands your outdoor living space — a sought-after trait. Wood decks are a cost-e ective option, while composite decks o er low maintenance and an eco-friendly feature since they are typically made from recycled wood bers and plastic materials.

With rising temperatures, droughtresistant landscaping, or xeriscaping, is gaining popularity. It can increase

property value by 10-12% by requiring less maintenance and water than traditional landscaping. With proper planning, xeriscaping can bring gorgeous landscaping that needs 50-70% less water than a lawn to thrive. According to a recent article in, xeriscaping typically relies on local plants accustomed to the climate, making them easier to care for.

Landscape lighting and overall maintenance complete the ASLA list of value-increasing projects. Lighting enhances aesthetics and adds to the home’s sense of safety and security.

According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), a simple mowing, pruning, and freshening of mulch can bring a 104% ROI.

However, not all landscaping projects add value to your home.

ASLA advises avoiding projects like Asian Zen gardens or cactus gardens anywhere but in the Southwest, large green lawns in drought-prone areas, water features such as swimming pools, ponds or waterfalls, and

elaborate hardscaping such as outdoor kitchens.

For many, committing to organizing can come in waves. Perhaps it is a task taken on seasonally or sporadically relating to a particular occasion. Regardless of when you choose to begin organizing ... there are some general design rules that can help to lead to a successful outcome.

Design recipes top tips

• Purge/remove all unwanted or unnecessary items.

• Take a quick inventory of what you wish to keep.

• Have a design/organization plan.

• Purchase organization bins.

• Color code and/or label items in groupings.

• Hire a professional organizer if needed.

• Reorganize your space to provide for individual storage or compartments.

• Separate items by usage or season.

Best cities to move to in Colorado (continued)

to retirees. At the same time, an abundance of wineries, breweries and outdoor activities, not to mention job opportunities, are a draw for younger adults.

“You have an outdoor playground in your background. You can ski in the morning and mountain bike in the afternoon,” Englehart said.

All that can be had at the second lowest housing cost in the state after Pueblo. At an average of $383,283, Grand Junction homes cost about a third less than the average of the 22 locations studied and rents run a quarter cheaper, according to Homefront.

On the downside, Grand Junction’s median household income of $62,993 is a little over two-thirds the statewide average and a smaller share of residents are college-educated. Walkability is somewhat below average, although the city’s downtown has staged a comeback.

Littleton ranked highly for its top-notch school district and access to health care. Loveland was lauded for its comparatively affordable rents, a lower crime rate and the lowest unemployment rate in the state.

“Some of it is growing pains”

At the other extreme were Commerce City, Brighton and Thornton.

Commerce City’s troubled Adams 14 School District scores a lowly 1 on a 1 to 10 scale, and is one of the worst in the state and in the bottom 7% nationally, according to Neighborhood Scout. Things were so bad that the state stepped in and stripped the local school board of control in 2018.

Proximity to primary care providers was only one-tenth the group average. Rents were the second highest after Highlands Ranch at $2,485 a month and the population was the third most rent-burdened in the state after Boulder and Castle Rock.

Brighton’s 27J was dinged as a

below-average school district, with a score of 4, and the city had the second-lowest share of collegeeducated residents. Thornton’s Adams 12 Five Star Schools district, had a much higher score of 7, but the city suffered from a lack of restaurants and activities, as did Commerce City.

“That is something we are very aware of and our City Council has made it very clear they want to address those shortcomings,” said Travis Huntington, community relations manager for Commerce City.

Commercial services have failed to keep up with the surge in construction in northern Commerce City, contributing to the shortfall in medical facilities, restaurants and attractions, Huntington said.

Housing costs were comparable to other places in metro Denver, i.e. on the high end, but residents received less in terms of the quality of life, Ness said of the three low-ranking cities in Adams County.

But Huntington countered that Adams County has a reputation for relative affordability in housing, one reason people are moving there.

Commerce City had the fourth fastest growth rate of any large municipality in the state between July 2020 and July 2023 at 8.7%, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

“We can hardly keep up with the amount of growth. There are a lot of positives happening here. Some of it is growing pains. We aim to work through that as a community,” Huntington said.

High crime rates bring scores down

Colorado’s two largest cities didn’t fare well either. Denver ranked 19th and Aurora ranked 17th, with Pueblo sandwiched in between.

Pueblo, the closest thing to a steel town in Colorado, has had a rough go of it since deindustrialization took hold decades ago. But why did Denver

and Aurora rank so poorly?

A higher crime rate was a factor for all three cities, and so were high home insurance premiums. Crime rates, based on violent and property crimes, as well as the affordability of housing, carried heavier weights than the other variables examined in the study, Ness said.

Pueblo led with nearly 81 reported crimes per 1,000 residents, followed by Denver at 74.1 crimes and Lakewood at 61.8. The safest location studied, in terms of crime, was Castle Rock, with a crime rate of 11.8 reported crimes per 1,000 residents, followed by Parker at 19.6 and Centennial at 23.1.

The average crime rate for the 22 Colorado locations was 39.5 incidents per 1,000 residents.

Highlands Ranch, which isn’t a municipality but is a censusdesignated place with more than 100,000 residents, had the highest monthly rent, including both homes and apartments, at $2,505 a month, according to the Zillow Observed Rent Index.

Commerce City had the secondhighest monthly rent at $2,485 and Boulder was third at $2,442. Because much of the construction that has gone on in Highlands Ranch and Commerce City is single-family, rents may be skewing higher in those areas than where apartments dominate.

The three markets with the lowest monthly rents were Pueblo at $1,341, Greeley at $1,428 and Grand Junction at $1,467. The average of the observed monthly rents across all the locations in the survey was $1,990 a month.

Affordability, however, is a relative term. Rents were highest relative to incomes in Boulder, Commerce City and Pueblo, with a note that college students distort the Boulder rent burden. Incomes were best able to cover the typical rent in Highlands Ranch, Parker and Castle Rock.

Average annual home insurance premiums were the highest in Pueblo at $4,472, despite the lowest home

prices of the areas studied. Aurora, Centennial and Denver were next highest at $3,809, $3,780 and $3,776, respectively. Premiums in Grand Junction, with its milder climate, were the lowest $1,380, under a third of Pueblo’s, even though homes cost more in Mesa County.

Littleton had the highest number of restaurants per 1,000 residents, followed by Denver, Boulder and Grand Junction.

The most walkable cities were Denver, Boulder, Lakewood and Aurora.
