Momentum in our local real estate market is continuing to build with increased activity in the late summer months of 2009. In June, the combined number of transactions among single family residences/duplexes, condos/townhomes and land was at 55. After closing the month of September, this number has more than doubled with 117 sales. Data for the past 45 days indicates even greater activity on the horizon with 161 pending sales. The first graph below highlights the lows of early 2009 as well as the upswing in transactions experienced over recent months. The second graph shows the sold data since 2007.

Loveland Ski Area announced yesterday it would open today - its earliest opening in 40 years! The ski area, located 50 minutes west of Denver, starting running lifts this morning at 9am and is the first resort in the state to open.

The ski area opens with only one run, but it's a great sunny day today and a perfect way to break in the ski legs for the winter ahead. Loveland has been making snow since September 21 and has tree to tree coverage with an 18 inch base. Conditions are looking good for early season.

Each year the rivalry and a "race to open" takes place between Loveland Ski Area and A-Basin Ski Resort. Last year the two resorts tied and the two previous years, A-Basin Ski Resort won the race. We applaud Loveland for their snowmaking efforts and…

It's been snowing off and on the past couple of days in Breckenridge, Colorado. It's typical we'd get some snow in town in the Fall sometime during the month of September, but we're wondering if Old Man Winter is making his entrance early or if we will truly get to enjoy a little bit of fall. Snowcapped peaks and golden changing Aspens in the background make it the perfect time to cozy up at home around the fireplace and read a book. It's nice to have days like this in Breckenridge and with all the talk about what an epic winter it's going to be, we can't help but get excited for more.

Here's a photo from this morning of the snow covered peaks of Breckenridge Ski Resort. The count down until opening day begins!

Earlier in the month, we emailed our clients and friends with our "Secret Stash" recommendation - our local's secret and something not to miss in Breckenridge, Colorado. Our "Secret Stash" for the week was the beautiful changing Aspens at their peak on Boreas Pass. We hope you were able to check it out. We have been up there several times this fall and this weekend was beautiful. Get up there in the next few days if you haven't already, or the leaves will have fallen and you might have to wait until next year.

Winter is just around the corner and we’re wondering what it might bring. Each year we hope for endless snow. Will Mother Nature deliver this year? We’ve reviewed weather predictions from two separate, century-old forecasting methods - the Farmers’ Almanac and Weather Folklore. There are some interesting insights from both and if they're right, it could be a big Winter. Hint, hint…shoveling may be in your future.

Without computers or instruments to forecast weather long-term, Farmers’ Almanac predictions are based on a top-secret mathematical and astronomical formula that dates back to the 1800s, when the first issue was published. This formula is still heavily relied upon today with the latest 2010 predictions just released. Will it be a cold Winter? The…
