Singletree located in Edwards, Colorado and home of the Sonnenalp Golf Course is truly the place to be in the Vail Valley. If location, views, golfing, skiing and easy access to all the Rocky Mountain activities you can think of is what you are looking for in a permanent home or a second home, then I recommend Singletree as your primary choice. Currently there are over twenty homes on the market priced from the low $500,000's to over the 2 million dollar price. For more information on any of the homes on the market in Singletree or any where in the Vail Valley, see my contact information.
The foreclosure process is certainly one that bears a lot of attention in Eagle County, and as of the end of the year 2012, there has been a noticeable drop in those numbers. Over the past year there were 309 foreclosure sales compared to 338 in 2011. More significantly, in 2012 there were 446 initial flilings compared to 615 in the previous year, a 28% drop. What those numbers mean can vary widely since the process itself can take quite a bit of time, sometimes over a year to complete.
Today's Vail Daily headlines 'More Snow, More Terrain' and the conditions have never been better. (click here for up-to-date snow conditions.) Yesterday, this Broker took the day off to enjoy the fantastic conditions on Vail Mountain. We are now in full force on the front side of the mountain. With the opening of the Highline Express lift as well as the Riva Bahn Express the entire front side of the mountain is not only skiable, but the natural snow trails are soft and pillowy. Only a few weeks ago we could only ski the man made snow trails and they were icy and crowded, but that is no longer the case. The start of the Christmas vacation skiers will be excited to see the change that has taken place over the past two weeks.
