There’s no time like springtime to hit Arapahoe Basin and a day at The Beach. Pack the car, grab some friends and some sunscreen, and hit the road early to secure prime time real estate at the top beach spot in the county, The Beach at A-Basin.

There’s a lot of buzz about happenings in Silverthorne and Dillon as exciting new developments are underway throughout both mountain towns. Numerous projects are coming to life following the completion of the Silverthorne performing arts center and newly renovated Lake Dillon Amphitheatre, including more restaurants, exciting arts and culture, and new housing - all helping to create a new identity for Silverthorne and add new excitement for Dillon.

One of the most common questions we hear from our clients is, “When is the best time to sell my home?” Sellers, of course, want to make sure they time their listing to take advantage of the best market conditions allowing for the best return on their potential sale. Certainly, our answer depends on a number of variables and considerations specific to individual sellers and properties. But, as a general rule of thumb, getting your property ready for market in the spring will allow for the most exposure to Breckenridge and Summit County buyers heading in to the prime real estate months of the summer. Locally, real estate activity picks up significantly in the summer with more buyers ready to buy and have their home ready for the next winter season.
