Located along the banks of the Eagle River just 10 minutes southwest of Vail, the historic town of Minturn has kept its old west personality.? Signs of the town?s former mining and railroad identity abound amongst the shops, galleries and restaurants that line the quaint and personable Main Street.? During the winter Minturn is most known for the Minturn Mile, a backcountry ski run that takes you from Vail Mountain right past the Saloon where the chips and margaritas take the edge off sore ski legs.? In the summer, Minturn vibrates with activity from kayak races, the Minturn Jazz Festival and the Minturn Farmers Market (one of the biggest social scenes in the Valley).? The Turntable restaurant reminds us of what made Minturn a town over a century ago with a miniature train set that runs around the restaurant above the booths.
Heading west from Vail Village the valley opens up, lending to West Vail?s greater size and number of pocket neighborhoods compared to East Vail and Vail Village.? Popular with locals and second homeowners alike, West Vail offers conveniences of groceries, dining and free transportation into town, along with world class outdoor activities of biking, fly-fishing and hiking.?
Separated by the interstate, the northern and southern sides of West Vail are quite unique.? The southern side (the Vail Mountain side) in an alpine setting amongst tall trees and fields of wildflowers (or snow).? The Matterhorn and Intermountain neighborhoods of south West Vail sit along the recreation path that runs along the creek from East Vail to Minturn.? Advanced skiers can ski home to these southern neighborhoods and everyone else can take the free Town of Vail bus.
The northern, exposed, side of West Vail boasts long days of sunshine and breathtaking views of the Gore Range Mountains and the Vail Valley.? With world class biking trails and hiking trails above, the shops and restaurants below and the post office down the street, this side of town is bustling with activity.
The first quarter of 2008 has come and gone, and the sales numbers are down across the board, except for the high-end market.? The high end market is seeing one of its best years ever.? There have been 25 residential transactions over $4 million through March 2008.? It would seem the segment of the population not affected by unstable financial markets are acquiring resort property in earnest.
The total sales volume of $228 million for March was 86% of last years March total.? The total number of transactions for the month, 145, is down 31% from last year and down over 50% from 2005.? The current trend is a decreasing numbers of transactions, with somewhat stable prices, leading to increasing average sales prices.? (this is somewhat misleasding, as individual homes are not seeing this price appreciation in the current market.)
