Hunting for a Mountain Area Home?

Hunting for a Mountain Area Home?

New to the market is this great townhouse on Hunters Drive – a quiet residential neighborhood with community pond, walking trails, on the city bus loop, and just a few minutes from the Steamboat Ski Area. The home lives like a duplex and feels spacious and private courtesy of the expansive decks, plentiful windows and thoughtful layout.

The attached two car garage is a prime feature in this snowy mountain town. It also serves to add privacy between the two sides of the home.

Vaulted ceilings, hickory wood floors, abundant natural light make for a warm and inviting living area. Opening to the dining area and onto the large and sunny decks, this is a great design for entertaining.

The kitchen is discretely positioned to take advantage of the great views whilst remaining user friendly and hiding dishes from sight.

Steamboat Springs, CO Market Update for November 2017

Welcome to our monthly Real Estate video market report!

Screen Shot 2017-11-10 at 1.15.57 PM

The real estate market in Steamboat Springs and Routt County remains strong. Limited inventory and strong demand in many areas of the market has created competition for new listings, consequently decreasing the number of days homes are staying on the market and creating favorable pricing conditions for sellers.

Federal interest rates remain unchanged this month however a rate increase is anticipated in December. So we may be seeing a bump in mortgage rates in correlation to this change should the forecast be accurate. Something to consider if you are looking to purchase in the near future, it may be worth your time to speak with your local lenders today!

A SMARTER RADON DETECTOR

Friday, October 6th, 2017

A Smarter Radon Detector

If you regularly read my blogs or have purchased real estate in Routt County, you probably know that radon levels are high in more than half of all homes here. Higher than the EPA recommends and higher than is safe for you and your families long term health (radon is considered to be the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US today!).

If you don’t, then lets catch you up on the nitty gritty of radon. Radon is an odorless, colorless, tasteless radioactive gas that comes from the natural breakdown uranium in the ground. Trace amounts of uranium are located all around us, and therefore so is radon. Which just happens to be highly toxic. Outside in nature this gas is dispersed enough that our body can react accordingly. However when radon seeps into your well insulated, well sealed home, it essentially becomes trapped and concentrated in the air you breathe. Click here for more information on radon in your home.

That Place Where The Locals Roost

Every town has that neighborhood, that development that people flock to and becomes knows as “a locals favorite”. Steamboat Springs has a few of them, but perhaps the most well know is Mountain Vista. Let us explain why:

Just Listed: 777 Mountain Vista Circle

Nestled on a quiet hillside between the Steamboat Ski Area and downtown Steamboat Springs, is a quiet and friendly neighborhood known as Mountain Vista.

Screen Shot 2017-08-10 at 3.20.16 PM

This collection of townhomes was quickly considered to reflect the quality and style that the locals desired, affordability, as well as the ultimate in convenience. The free City bus travels past the entrance and for the dog friendly or athletically motivated, Rita Valentine park is an easy walk.

And now you too can get in on the towns worst kept secret. Just listed is 777 Mountain Vista Circle. Located on the uphill edge of the neighborhood, the light is abundant and the views are pretty.
