Recently, the days have even started to smell different. First the nights get cooler, than colder. The light softens from the brilliance of summer. The tundra changes into her fall colors first, up there above tree line, where the weather is more extreme. Then come the first hits of the golden magic that marks the aspens changing. The nights get colder, the light even softer, and the aspen leaves brighter. Soon enough well wake to the first dusting of snow on the peaks, with a blaze of golden aspen meadow below. The heat in your home kicks on for the first time. More seasonal people arrive to town, energy running high with expectations of a big winter. Passes are purchased, gear is prepared, roommates gathered, wood chopped, split and stacked. The first…

It has been often repeated that 2017 was a once-in-a-generation sellers market in Summit County. That said, summer of 2018 continues the trend toward a healthy real estate market here in the high country. While July 2018 showed stronger numbers than July 2017 regarding number of sales, there was a 6.12% softening in sales year-to-date. Considering the record low number of available listings and the slight uptick in mortgage rates, that decline is slight and, on the whole, results indicate a strong market.
Seventy-two percent of all buyers in July of 2018 came from within Colorado, and only 1% of Summit County buyers are internationals. Interestingly, in Breckenridge this July, single family, duplex and condo sales all outpaced the July 2017 numbers,…

So how can you best prepare when living nestled…
