While reading this month's Travel and Leisure magazine I flipped open to an?advertisement?by www.Colorado.com and was?ecstatic?to see that they used a view of the Vail Valley as their statement for the state of Colorado. The ad reads, "Let's talk breathtaking views, let's talk long drives, let's talk Colorado" and the large photograph captures golfers on the the 10th green of Cordillera Valley Club's golf course with a backdrop of the stunning New York and Sawatch Mountain Ranges. We currently have three incredible lots and one magnificent home in Cordillera Valley Club that each?uniquely?capture this view.?
A brand-new cookbook has just arrived in Vail! Created by locals who belong to the Alpine Club, a private and celebrated community in Arrowhead, Colorado (just minutes from Vail, Colorado). Offering ski storage, a fitness club, spa, the Yurt (a restaurant atop the mountain), and an active social calendar, the Alpine Club is popular and loved by 600 families in the community. It is truly an extension of its members homes.?
Many of the members often together reach out to the Vail Valley and work with non-profit organizations and?volunteer?multiple times throughout the year. Recently, the Alpine Club has decided to partake in the Make A Difference Day Food Drive, the single largest annual food drive in Colorado, by creating a cookbook, filled with member's favorite?recipes. Every dollar raised from the cookbook will buy five pounds of food which will help benefit families within Eagle County.
Don't expect a guaranteed answer to that question, but it is one that everyone connected to this industry is trying to answer. One thing we do know is that no matter where you are in the economic spectrum of the US economy, no one has been exempt from the drop in values of real estate. There are many owners in the Vail Valley who never used a mortgage and therefore have not been affected by increased mortgage payments, but even cash buyers have seen the affects of a weakening home value. On the other hand, the run up in values of real estate over the past three years had to come to a halt at some point, it always has in the 30 years I have been in the business, and usually happens in eight year cycles. As I have pointed out in earlier blogs, we have seen a 40% drop in number of transactions over the past 12 months. Even though the median price of real estate remained high last year, that was attributed to contracts that were signed as much as two years prior for units like the Arrabelle. Units that are under construction right now may not have the same such good fortune.
