vail colorado real estate: Cold Morning Vail Open House - 01/02/11 05:08 AM
Cold day here in Vail.  But if it is too cold to ski today feel free to drop by my listing at 387 Beaver Dam Circle.  Ski-In home, right next to the Gondola in Lionshead.  The home was built in 2000 but it feels brand new. 5 bedrooms including a caretaker studio.
I've had early morning open houses before in the Summer, but never during Winter.  I'll let all you readers know how it goes.
Happy New Year.

vail colorado real estate: The Snow Keeps Falling and The Prices are Keeping Up. - 12/17/10 10:02 AM
Here is a video showing the amazing snow on Vail Mountain.
The Mountain is 97% open and we've had almost 150 inches of snow so far.  This is the season for a Vail trip or the purchase of a Vail home. 
On the real estate front, as opposed to the skiing front, there is a noticeable uptick in activity in the market.  The three new projects in town, the Ritz Carlton,  The Four Seasons, and Solaris, are all open and looking great.  After all the years of construction, Vail is looking better than ever. 
I'm actually crazy busy right now.  Closing … (2 comments)

vail colorado real estate: Snow Snow and More Snow. Vail is Ready for Opening Day. - 11/17/10 05:44 AM
Nearly 3 feet of powder in the last week.  Vail is certainly ready for center stage.  Not only is the Mountain looking great but the town has never looked better.  The almost 2 Billion (that is a B) Dollar Vail Renewal is almost complete.  The Ritz Carlton Residences are open.  Solaris, the new town center, is open, and the Four Seasons opens on December 11.  Vail finally has a Town base with the same quality as our on-mountain experience.  Whether you are looking for a ski vacation or to purchase an amazing ski home/condo, I can point you in the right … (3 comments)

vail colorado real estate: Vail Ski Season is Almost Here - 11/16/10 05:04 AM
Vail Mountain is going to open on Friday.  We've had over two feet of snow the past few days with much more on the way.  It is going to be a great season and amazing Opening Weekend. 

As far as Real Estate goes, there is plenty of activity.  Lots of showings, lots of closings, lots of offers.  Looks like we are reaching equilibrium between buyers and sellers.  Realism has reared its head in the Vail Real Estate Market. 
Even though our inventory has been reduced there are still amazing opportunities out there for buyers at all price points.  Please … (1 comments)

vail colorado real estate: Big Surprise in Vail, Colorado Real Estate - 04/30/10 08:18 AM
First let me say that I’m not going to upload a picture, because any picture that I take would feature tons of SNOW.  I don’t want to feature snow right now, it is May 1st tomorrow.  The Mountain is closed and it is still dumping here.  I must admit I’m ready for Summer. 
So with that being said, here is the surprise that the Title refers to.  There are currently 35 properties for sale in Vail, Colorado under $400,000.  That number includes 1 bedroom condos up to 3 bedroom condos and town homes.  These are not all fixer uppers.  Some of … (0 comments)

vail colorado real estate: Vail Vail Vail Vail - 01/29/10 07:05 AM
So I went away last weekend.  A family vacation.  Short but sweet.  While I was away Vail transformed from America's biggest ski resort without much snow, into what we expect when we hear Vail.  It snowed a lot while I was gone.  The Mountain is in great shape, and today is one of those incredible blue sky days.  I'd like to post a picture of the blue sky, but my iPhone camera wouldn't do it justice.  Just take my word for it, today is a day to be out on the Mountain.  This is going to be a great weekend.  Hope … (1 comments)

vail colorado real estate: Using Tumblr - 11/23/09 02:54 AM
So "Our Vail Ski Home" is back up and running again.  I was using the iweb authoring tool that came with my mac.  Either I was doing something wrong or the blog just became too big. Either way it wasn't working so well.  So I've done some research and decided on Tumblr.  I know Wordpress is awfully popular, and I already have a non-real estate blog on blogspot.  But Tumblr seemed like the right choice for my business blog.  The interface is awfully easy to use.   The iPhone app is great.  And with a bit of HTML customization I was able … (5 comments)

vail colorado real estate: Vail Ritz Carlton Club - 03/13/09 09:32 AM
I just received a call from the Ritz Carlton Club here in Vail.  They are offering a screaming introductory deal on their "under construction" new Ritz Carlton.  It is a great property and obviously a great product. It is the first of the developments between Lionshead and the new Evervail. 
The construction is moving along very quickly.
The deal is time dependent, so give me a call today to learn the details.  Mark--970-331-5821

vail colorado real estate: Your Dream Home - 12/11/08 07:03 AM
Part of my job is obviously touring Vail Properties.  This allows me to know what is on the market so that I can help you find what you are looking for.  I tour lots of properties, especially in the off season, which just ended.  At Forbes Sotheby’s International Realty we take pride in our property knowledge.  So what I’m about to tell you holds some weight.
Actually, the property I’m talking about isn’t my listing.  It isn’t even a listing from an office mate.  It is just a listing that I toured last week.  And today I learned that the price … (0 comments)

vail colorado real estate: Deal of the Century? - 12/05/08 03:27 AM
Vail is Vail.  That’s just the way it is.  We are very unique.  Even though we feel the economic distress, it manifests itself a little differently here.  Unlike the rest of the country our Real Estate is basically holding its value.  Of course there is a lot more inventory on the market right now, because sales have slowed, but for the most part prices haven’t really come down.  
What does this mean for you, a potential buyer?  Well first and foremost you have your pick of homes.  If you are looking for a 1 Bedroom penthouse, you can find it.  If … (1 comments)

vail colorado real estate: You Can Make It Happen - 12/03/08 08:37 AM
I’m well aware that the economy isn’t doing so well.  People are worried.  People are losing their jobs.  I know I know I know.  But as cruel as it seems, downturns are sometimes the best times to get ahead.  The Vail market is doing fine, in the context of the rest of the Nation.  We are still going strong.  People still want to ski, and there is only one Vail mountain.  But that being said, there is more real estate inventory on the market now than at any time in recent memory.  
This means that in Vail, it is a … (0 comments)
