Durango Real Estate Sales Statistics-YTD 2011 - 07/24/11 12:14 AM
Durango real estate statistics for the first 6 months of 2011 I have written about Durango real estate statistics for the first 6 months of 2011 but in that analysis I was looking at various price brackets and not by geographic areas of the county. (See previous blog.) In order to fully understand Durango real estate sales statistics one needs to look at what areas are, and are not, selling and whether or not there is a trend that can be seen. In this review, I will talk about January 1 through June 30 only for the years 2008, 2009, 2010 (1 comments)
Silverton Mining Claims | Strike It Rich! - 07/18/11 07:47 PM
Silverton Mining Claims | Strike It Rich! Six patented mining claims located in Minnehaha Basin just north of Silverton, Colorado. Guaranteed access, title insurance, warranty deed and all the minerals are included although there will be a small royalty retained if you ever decide to mine the minerals. For the true outdoor enthusiast, these properties, which are located at about 11,400 feet above sea level in the San Juan Mountains, offer views that will totally knock your socks off! A County road provides legal access although you can understand that at that elevation they do not plow it in the wintertime. (0 comments)

Durango 3 Bedroom Townhome Adjoining BLM Lands - 07/18/11 01:13 PM
Durango 3 Bedroom Townhome Adjoining BLM Lands One of the advantages of Durango real estate is that we have lots of public lands throughout our County.

Durango Colorado Neighborhoods - 07/15/11 02:41 PM
Durango Colorado Neighborhoods One of the very unique things about Durango Colorado real estate is a multiplicity of Durango neighborhoods. Durango is not like the big city where large corporate builders come in and build hundreds of homes with four or five floorplans. Instead Durango neighborhoods usually have numerous builders and an amazing array of floorplans. Over the last year I have created a "Durango Neighborhoods" section in my website www.BuyDurango.com where I take my 34 years of experience and discuss all of the major Neighborhoods in La Plata County. Here is a link to that section of my website: Durango (0 comments)
Durango Building Lots Near Lake Nighthorse - 07/14/11 05:06 PM
On July 1 of this year the Bureau of Reclamation declared Lake Nighthorse officially filled to capacity. This reservoir, located just outside the city limits of Durango, will offer wonderful recreational opportunities for residents of Durango. The land all around Lake Nighthorse will be publicly held so it's not a lake where there'll be cabins on the water. There are several subdivisions close by that will provide easy access in less than 5 minutes. We have several Durango building lots that are near Lake Nighthorse. Team Lorenz currently has 3 individual lots located in the Shenandoah Subdivision which is a project (1 comments)
Durango Home on Acreage, 1 1/2 Miles to Town - 07/10/11 07:37 PM
Working in the Durango real estate market for as many years as I have, I know how difficult it is to find a nice acreage with a home on it, yet still be very close to town. We match that set of criteria with a home that we are offering for sale in Chelsey Acres located just 1.5 miles east of the intersection of Florida Road and County Road 250….about 3 miles from downtown Durango. This is a small project… less than 10 lots… offering a central water system and 3+ acre lots with wonderful privacy afforded by the beautiful Ponderosa (0 comments)
Things My Daddy Taught Me - 07/06/11 08:06 PM
My father would be 101 years old next month if he were still living. His spirit and teachings however have continued on well beyond his death 20 years ago. As in immigrant to this country from Austria-Hungary during the first world war, he brought with him a lot of wisdom and together with many of his life lessons learned while running and owning his own business… he passed on to his children. I now share these pearls that people in my office call "Rickisms". When sharing this wisdom with others I always start with "My Papa used to say…. On Being (4 comments)
34 years of successfully selling Durango Colorado real estate certainly qualifies me as having seen just about everything. There have been funny moments "What do you mean you're going to cash my earnest money check?" And there have been serious moments where we completed a short sale just hours before the foreclosure sale was to occur. My greatest satisfaction comes from knowing that we have the expertise and are able to help those people in what is usually the largest financial transaction of their life.
One of our clients once said "We sure are glad that you were at the helm of the ship steering our transaction. A little gray hair behind the ears of the 'captain' sure made these passengers feel safer."
