Showings, All in the Details in Summit County, Colorado

selling real estateShowings, it’s all in the details. Showings are up in Frisco, Co that are priced in the $300,000-$400,000 price range.  Selling real estate can appear daunting, after all there is a great deal of preparation involved in attracting buyers, but the more attention you give to the appearance of your home the easier your job could be. The number one goal of a seller is to get an offer and if you set your home up for success everything else will fall into place. Although, inventories are beginning to dwindle in Summit County, Co, it is still necessary to make your home as attractive as possible.

Many sellers wait and wait for showings, other sellers get them right away. The best plan of attack is to be prepared for showings at the drop of a hat from the day you list your home. Luxury home sellers have their homes perfectly staged and ordinary home sellers should be no different. It always helps to brighten up the place, especially if your property is dated, you may think of adding lights or adding a fresh coat of paint.

The old adage “the devil is in the details” is never more prevalent than when preparing your home for showings. From complete and utter cleanliness to absolute organization, there are other details than can add appeal to your home that can attract a buyer’s eyes. Fresh flowers in the kitchen, living room, dining room and bedrooms can add to your home’s appeal.

Walk through your home and consider how you can make it appear fresh. Every little detail can change a room. Your goal is to have a seller walk through your home and feel comfortable immediately.

Ski Areas in Summit County Colorado finally getting snow!

The past week Breckenridge received over a foot of snow, and today they opened Peak 7.  Copper Mountain announced the Snow Day Pass (formerly the powder pass) .  It is a limited time pass available for $99 and allows the pass holder to ski anytime that Copper receives 4″ of snow or more.  Even if you can’t get to the slopes when it is a powder day you get 2 days, so it is a great value.

Frisco Adventure Park is now offering beginner  2 hour Ski and Snowboard lessons taught by the Copper Mountain Ski and Ride Instructors.  This is a great opportunity for people to have a nice small lesson (no more than 8 in a group).  When you are finished with your lesson you can enjoy the tubing at the Adventure Park or just relax by the fire in the new lodge.

Keystone has announced an incentive to book lodging with them.  If you stay 2 nights, kids under 12 can ski for free.

Ski Season opens in Summit County, Colorado-CDOT is expanding I-70

The ski season is among us and BreckenridgeKeystone,  A-basin,  Copper are all open with Vail slated to open on November 16th.  The snow is actually quite good.  I was able to go out on Sunday at Copper and fortunately they have been able to make snow with the cold temperatures that we have had.  It did snow last weekend and we are expecting snow this weekend.

CDOT (Colorado Dept. of Transportation) is gearing up to expand an eastbound lane to Denver between the Twin Tunnels ( which is located just outside of Idaho Springs) and to the base of Floyd Hill.  This is going to be a 60 million dollar expansion, but is expected to help the traffic flow back to Denver.

With the election over and the ski season upon us, now is still the best time to buy a property before the end of the year.  With the uncertainty of the Fiscal Cliff, no one seems to know what will happen with our almighty dollar.  Are the stocks going to completely drop?  The interest rates are still at an all time low and our properties are priced well comparable to 2004-2005.  Wouldn’t it be nice to have that mountain property you have dreamed about, not have to worry about traffic or your stocks, why not invest it in Real Estate?

4th of July Celebrations in Frisco Colorado

The 4th of July is a wonderful time to be in Summit County, CO.  Although it is in the middle of the week this year, why not come up to the mountains for the day and escape the heat?

Every year Frisco hosts a small town parade down Main St.   It is a lot of fun, and it seems that the entire town is involved in the parade at some capacity.  There are children riding their decorated bikes trying to win that special prize, as well as belly dancers, antique cars, homemade floats, clowns, etc.  It is just an old fashioned parade.  It starts at 12:30pm, but you better get here early to claim a spot.

When you arrive  early make sure you are hungry to  enjoy a pancake breakfast at 3rd and Main sponsored by Team Summit (ski and snowboard club).  The pancake breakfast begins at 8am.  When you are finished eating head over the fishing derby for kids under age 12 at Meadow Creek Park (behind Walmart).  At 10am ,The Summit Concert Band will be playing at Historic Park located on 2nd and Main.

After the parade enjoy the Rocky Mountain Craft show located on Madison and Main.

For the Finale concert head over to the Frisco Marina to Jakarta at 7:15 pm.  This is a Motown sounding band playing Rhythm and Blues.  Should be a lot of fun.

The 4th of July is not the only day things are happening, on Thursday night there is a free concert series at 5:30 pm featuring Al Chesis and the Delta Sonics.  This is a blues band, and should be a lot of fun.  The concert series occurs in Historic Park.

Happy 4th of July!

Summer in Summit County, CO-Activities Begin!

Aahh, summertime in Summit County is one of my favorite times of the year. People ask “Are you going anywhere?” and the answer is typically “no”.  Summit County is a mega playground in the summertime.  The kickoff for the summer begins this weekend with live music at the Frisco Annual BBQ.  The BBQ competition is held on Main St. in Frisco with participants competing from all over the country.  The town of Frisco blocks off Main St., so the BBQ competitors and other food and beverage vendors can claim their space.

If you would like to get in shape prior to indulging in on the BBQ, why not enter the Frisco inaugural 5k Bacon Burner run on Saturday, June 16.  If you don’t want to race, enjoy watching the famous pig races (yes, I said Pig races). It is hilarious!  Even if you don’t like beef, pork, or chicken, there are other options for you to try, or, just get a drink and relax and watch the several hundred people.
