Green building might not be new to Steamboat, but it still has a long way to go. Leading that charge is Sarah Fox, who was born and raised in Steamboat and grew up working for her family business, Fox Construction. She earned her degree in Construction Management from Colorado State University in 2005 and that’s when she became intrigued by green building and construction practices that were more sustainable. “I loved building, but wasn’t keen on the wasteful side. The idea that we could save energy and recycle building materials was exciting,” she says. “It inspired me to want to bring those practices home to our family company.”

Lets talk inventory!

Limited residential inventory has been an increasing issue since the end of the recession. With fewer homes for sale, competition for buyers is fierce, and homes spend less time on the market and prices are driven higher. Inventory shortages are becoming a national crisis and there is no single cause – and consequently no single solution. Here’s a look at some of the factors contributing to local inventory woes in a little more detail:


The migration slowdown. Americans are moving less than they have historically done.

  • - The widening price gap between starter homes and next level homes means that home buyers cannot afford to make the leap and upsize. The increase in housing costs and the equity built into inexpensive starter homes purchased years ago leaves would-be buyers at a loss. Thus home owners are staying put.

Mountain Architecture Year in Review

Mountain Architecture Year in Review: An Art Form of Compromise

Trends come and go, but for longtime Steamboat architect Joe Patrick Robbins, the client’s tastes are always the bottom line.

Screen Shot 2018-01-08 at 3.16.49 PM

It doesn’t take much to see where Steamboat architecture is headed. There are enough construction sites around town to know that more modern features like single-pitched rooves and clean lines with a lot of metal and glass have arrived in Steamboat, along with the kind of high-end, high-dollar homes that were once associated with upscale resorts like Telluride, Vail, and Aspen.

But one thing remains the same, according to Joe Patrick Robbins, an architect who has been designing houses in Steamboat for 45 years: Regardless of the trends, good design is always going to be timeless. “It’s really important that an architectural design isn’t so tied to a trend or a fad that it then becomes easily identified as a house that’s built in certain time period. A really thoughtful design is going to have a certain timeless element.”

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.

Screen Shot 2017-12-28 at 11.12.10 AM

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.

Screen Shot 2017-12-28 at 11.06.10 AM

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.

Screen Shot 2017-12-28 at 11.15.36 AM.

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 Report for December 2017

Talking Home Affordability. You hear that word a lot these days, but what exactly does it mean? Well in a nutshell, it means how much house can you afford. And this varies for everyone.

Some of the key factors in calculating affordability are:

  • - monthly income
  • - funds to cover your down payment and closing costs
  • - monthly expenses
  • - Existing debt
  • - Credit profile
  • - Ongoing costs associated with property in addition to the home price eg. HOA dues, etc.

Housing affordability is an increasing challenge throughout the country, not surprising when you see figures such as 6.2% average year over year home gains in September*. But how does this look in our little mountain town? The Housing Affordability Index  calculated by the Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors indicates that home affordability for YTD 2017 is quite a bit harder than the same time last year. A number of factors go into this calculation and in all honesty I don’t have the equation, but it is based on interest rates, median sales price and average income by county.
