Denver Real Estate Market

It’s still all good news! The Denver real estate market is one of the 28 cities still growing and could realize yet another year of high appreciation. For lower-priced properties (up to $500,000), competition to purchase is fierce and inventory is only around a one-month supply.

In the luxury market ($650,000 +), homes do take longer to sell and obviously the more expensive the home, the smaller the buyer pool is. When we get into the seven-figure homes, the les…

History of Vail Valley
 

From 1854 to 1856, Irishman George Gore (aka Lord Gore) and frontiersman Jim Bridger were among the first explorers to discover the majestic beauty of the mountains northwest of what is now known as Vail Valley.

As news spread that the mountains contained both gold and silver, fortune seekers set up mines and railroads, displacing the Ute Native Americans from their lands. In an act of retribution, the Ute set fire to thousands of acres of trees, creating the…

Posted on at 7:34 am by Andrea Webber

If you love to ski and serve or have served our country in the military, EPIC Pass is a smorgasbord of skiing and snowboarding with an amazing story behind it.

It all began in Vail. Pete Siebert and Earl Eaton, both World War II veterans, climbed to the top of Vail Mountain in 1957 and saw what would become one of the most famous ski resorts in the world. Their determination and passion to bring access to the mountains to others made Vail Valley what it is today.

Colorado Forests and Denver’s Homeless

Posted on at 3:21 pm by Andrea Webber

 

People from around the country come to our utopia of scenic views of the Continental Divide, pine, aspen and spruce trees, and rock promontories to relax with family and friends in our National Parks. The Colorado Rockies provide some of the most beautiful backdrops with campgrounds to get away from it all – unless you are one of many of Denver’s homeless.

There are many who are not simply camping. They are living. In the wake of the recent massive cost-of-living increase in the…

Next Generation Luxury Home Buyers

Posted on at 1:02 pm by Andrea Webber

What do the next generation luxury home buyers want? Pretty much everything!

Luxury Portfolio International has dubbed this average age of 37 homebuyers with young families “the new aristocracy.”  Parents of a certain net worth are choosing to gift at least part of an eventual inheritance to allow their grown children to get a good head start in real estate. Luxury real estate, that is.

Having grown up around luxury and branding, the new aristocracy understands that the same applies t…

Posted on at 6:15 pm by Andrea Webber

Got a green, dream home? It’s what buyers are increasingly looking for.

A Tesla solar roof may be pricey, but it could rapidly become a ‘must-have’ in the luxury home market for those seeking energy freedom with the off-the-grid lifestyle. In the State of Colorado, we enjoy up to 250 annual days of sunshine, so why not take advantage of it to power your property?
