A real steal for a hang out winter and summer, and a great rental right at the lift.

Standard

Small but mighty right at the Snowflake chair, a newer studio that lives far more like a small one bedroom, and even has 1.5 baths. The small kitchen separates the living room from the bedroom, and your view is the woods and watching the lift go by.

This unit is one you can use to escape with a hotter summer, and hike to one of the best in town hikes right next to your front door, to a hidden lake, waterfalls, log bridges and teaming with wildflowers. In the winter right out the door and onto the lift, and ski right back to the front door. Walk to town or catch the Wyndham shuttle. Relax in the hot tub, or have a party in the the lovely main lounge. Who needs the car you have parked underneath the building.  $299,000. Wow. You can have it all.

I am back. And look at this magnificent 2 bedroom unit I have the priviledge to sell.

Standard

I have been busy learning how to shoot videos, but so far I have not taken one I am proud of…so I stopped posting. But too much happening to miss all that is happening. Let’s start with the last first. I got the sweetest letter that said a new listing from an old customer. he then went on to detail about how hard I worked to get them what they wanted, and now their family is grown, moved to California, and he is buying in Tahoe. Unlike most sellers, he is not wanting to squeeze out every last penny. he asked me to  list it so it would sell in a reasonable time. So this 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit, with the best view in the county, is listed at $649,000. He put in a wonderful new kitchen, granite vanities in the baths, and  a view that really needs a panoramic camera to capture. It has the Blue River (we could see a fly fisherman), dumping into the Maggie Pond. We see the entire Pond, the waterfall cascading back into the Blue River.We saw Mount Baldy, Red Mountain, east to Main Street Station , the new Waterhouse under construction, the ski area, the lift, and both Peak 8 & 9  and all the runs on both mountains, even Peak 10 in the distance.  A balcony that seats 6 plus a gas grill, if your not prone to a fear of heights. I think this is one of the best listings in town, and it will sell very soon.

A lot has changed in the 44 years since the first Earth Day, when 20 million people rallied across the country to bring awareness to environmental issues such as oil spills, pollution, and the extinction of wildlife. Now Earth Day advocates have added climate change to their campaign.

 

As more than half of the world’s population lives in cities, it’s the environmental initiatives

Eco-conscious residents: 58.3%

Non-eco-conscious residents: 13.7%

Recycling-conscious residents: 65.3%

Public transportation trips per capita in 2013: 138.5

Energy efficient buildings per 1,000 residents: 0.2

Denver has so much building going on, it’s looks like Shanghai!

Denver has so much building going on, it's looks like Shanghai!

We have had a house in Denver for about 14 years. Never before have I seen so much construction happening at one time. It’s absurd in Cherry Creek North, which is where I live, but drive along 1-25 through the core of downtown to the east, and the Highlands on the west, and cranes, and framed buildings is all you can see. I used to joke ( back in about 2006) that here in Breckenridge, that if you dug a hole, it rained and a house grew. Now in Denver the holes are bigger condo complex’s, commercial, and many, many apartments. Here in Summit County, we don’t have the place for much more than single family homesites ( 260 currently on the market). After 35 years I can speak from experience, if you want new, and you want condo, you have one, maybe 2 years at the most. If you want to build a home, or buy a spec, you have maybe 5-10 years, but, this sleepy little county I moved to 35 years ago, will soon be closing it’s doors to homeowners, as the visitors climb to maximum occupancy. 2013 was the best year ever, and wait till the numbers come in on 2014. The numbers will be through the roof.
