How about some golf?

We, high country residing fans of flora and fauna, are very confused about how the pansy - heartiest of high altitude flowers - has become a shorthand insult for weakness. We, pansy fans, will continue to cheer for this little guy, often the first kiss of color pushing through the snow. Be a pansy! Get outside and enjoy the variable conditions of spring in the high country.

How about some golf? Since A-Basin will be open through at least June, some skiing in the morning and golf in the afternoon is a Summit County double header. Add a bike ride for a triple, and if you find a 2 for 1 dining deal for dinner you've hit the Summit County homerun. Only for the experts- add a paddle, raft, hole in one, or large wildlife sighting for…

The bears are emerging from hibernation and they are out looking for food. Its a good thing they don't know about Summit County's mud season dining specials. Thanks to a new facebook page and website, keeping up-to-date on spring season dining deals and restaurant closings is easier than ever. Newly created by tapped-in locals looking for one cohesive calendar of events, live music and dining specials, we predict this source will quickly become a Summit County must-check.

Another locals favorite is the Dining Passport. Your ten dollar passport purchase opens the door to numerous dining deals and helps fund the Breckenridge Restaurant Associations scholarship awards to local students. Win/win yum. The link below…

Summer in Breckenridge is a time to reset. And while, summer won't start for a while yet, April and May can be nice, for their slowness, coming from the skiing high season. Summer is chance to reconnect with our human powered sports like hiking and biking. The strength and endurance we build from these sports hopefully allows us to have a strong and healthy ski season - circular, and tied together like the seasons. And as life circles for us, it goes for construction and infrastructure projects as well. As we take a collective breath and feel the earth beneath our feet, the earthmovers are also lining up to take advantage of nice weather and unfrozen ground.

A big project in Breckenridge this summer, one with the power to impact the flow of your day,…

In Summit County we take our biking seriously. It's not uncommon to see a bike attached to a car that the bike greatly out-values. Open space and trails get attention and funding unthinkable in other places. Events are designed to get you out and riding, teaching you how to maintain your ride, cheering for and being inspired by professional riders and creating chances to set goals and challenge yourself, are rife here in mountain summer. Race organizers are often looking for volunteers which is another great way to get involved in the summer bike scene.

Here are a few bike events to put on your calendar.

Breck Bike Week kicks off summer bike season in June. Breck Bike Week presents a diverse array of offerings like group rides, bike skills and…

After January's rocket ship, Summit County real estate sales slowed in February, but the launch that began the year is the anomaly, not last months sales numbers.  January's record closings likely originated in the last months of 2016 from buyers positioning to get in front of any uncertainly from a new administration and possible rate increases.

February 2017 sales numbers were mixed by category, but lower than last years' numbers overall, although the sold price per square foot continues to increase. Summit County's real estate market is small compared to big cities and so total sales volume is always less important than the increase in value (selling price per square foot or acre).

Our relatively small marketplace feels very small in March 2017…

By May 1st, 2017 you should have in your possession a new Notice of Valuation (NOV) of your real property value as assigned by the assessor, and based on comparable sales. Average Summit County increases are (anecdotally, not scientifically- yours can certainly divert in either direction from here) 15-20%. You have until June 1st , 2017 to postmark your new value should you feel its unfair. Your evidence must be supported sales that you feel are a better comparison to your home than the ones used to create your new valuation.

What a great time to call your favorite Broker/Partner over at Breckenridge Associates Real Estate! We have access to all the sales records, a deep knowledge of the market and familiarity with the NOV form. We are happy to help-…
