Activity for Residential Sales in Breckenridge has continued to be strong over the past 2 weeks. The number of sales have declined, but this is probably due to the fact that Buyers wanted to have closed on their properties with enough time to get ready for the Holidays.

The 40% Price Reduction at Water House accounted for 8 residences that have gone under contract. The number of price reductions declined, but there are some Super Deals out there.

Soooo many events, so little time. Just last week Breckenridge hosted three major events. The Breck Snowflake Challenge, The Ski Spectacular, and the Alpine Sports Film Festival.

The Breck Snowflake Challenge is the local's snow sculpture contest. Once a part of ULLR FEST, the recently resurrected, grass-roots event was an opportunity for 18 artists and their teams consisting of 1 - 6 people, to create sculptures out of piles, or "blocks" of snow in front of and beside businesses on Main Street.

Cartoon characters, holiday scenes, wildlife and a couple train engines made…

December 5-11 was a week of snow sculpting celebration on Main Street in Breckenridge, where 18 local teams came together to create some awe-inspiring sculptures for the public to see and competed to win a cash prize of $1,500 for the winning team. In its 3rd year, this year's event was the most successful to date with so many beautiful sculptures coming to life throughout town. You can still view many of the sculptures over the next couple days. It's a great excuse to take a holiday stroll down Main Street to see the sculptures and beautiful holiday lights with your family and friends.

A furnace failure, bursting pipes or a thermostat accidentally turned to “off” can turn into a home repair nightmare, creating water damage to everything from drywall to flooring to furniture. With many of our clients acting as second homeowners that may need to leave their residence unattended at times throughout the cold winter months, a temperature monitoring system can help to relieve the anxiety of being away from home.

Here’s how Temperature Monitoring Systems typically work: a keypad base unit plugs into a phone line as well as an electrical outlet. Internal temperature and power outage sensors continually monitor the home for: low temperatures and extended power outages.
