Over the years, being in the real estate business, it’s been fun watching the home design trends change.  Like fashion, home designs change a lot. According to Houzz, these are a few trends you can expect to see in homes in 2017.

Satin brass finishes have been making a comeback in recent years.  The satin or brushed brass seems to bring a warmer look.

Hardworking Kitchen Storage Walls are bringing more open space and creates a one-stop hub freeing up the rest of the space for a breezy look.

White With Off White brings a refreshing look.  Balancing a white palette with a creamy off white and natural linen hues creates a breathtaking look that can be rich with character.

Splurging in Laundry Rooms – Everyone knows that kitchens and bathrooms get the big remodel budgets but laundry room are now seeing the love.  Design tricks include bringing more light into the room and more storage.

Outdoor Feeling Indoor Showers – An outdoor shower is highly desirable but it is not practical in most states year round.  Designers and homeowners are looking to intimate courtyards and creative site placement to create bathrooms that connect deeply to the outdoors while still maintaining privacy.

Abundant Storage– Homeowners have demanded more storage space so newer homes are featuring enormous walk-in closets, spacious dressing rooms and plenty of built in cabinets.  Garage are also getting larger to accommodate the larger SUV’s and all of our gear.

Here in Vail you don’t have to wait until Friday to indulge in the many tasty treats and spirits offered in the Village…. because every day is Friday in paradise! 

So let’s apre ski!

One of my favorite post ski spots is Vail Chophouse! The grand windows make for beautiful natural light plus views of the wondering Vail mountain; while live music accompanies you as you wine and dine with friends.

Bart & Yeti’s is an awesome local spot where you’re sure you bump into your buddies!  This down to earth vibe is comfortable not to mention B&Y is a staple in Lionshead.

Just steps away from the Eagle Bahn Gondola over in Lionshead Tavern on the Square could be Vail’s #1 apre ski spot!  With incredible views of the Mountain on the patio there is no bad seat in the house!

Property Tax notices will be going out this month and will reflect an increase after Eagle County voters approved four separate taxes increases in 2016.  The four property tax increases this year include:  Eagle County School District, Eagle County Ambulance District, Eagle River Fire Protection District and Gypsum Fire Protection District.

Your property tax increase will depend on where your property is located.  Everyone in the Eagle River Valley from East Vail to Dotsero pay the tax increase for the schools and the ambulance district.  The tax increase for the Eagle River Fire Protection District will be paid by property owners from Tennessee Pass to Wolcott and areas north and south inside that district.  They will also pay the increased school taxes and ambulance district taxes.  The Gypsum property owners will pay the increased school taxes and ambulance district taxes along with the Gypsum Fire District taxes.

Under Colorado’s tax structure, residential property is taxed at 7.9 percent and Commercial property is taxed at 29 percent.  The commercial property owners will pay considerably more in property taxes.

Property values continue to rise but your residential property tax rates will not go up more than the 2017 increase.  According to Mark Chapin, Eagle County assessor, your residential property tax rates may decrease and here is why:  Under Colorado Gallagher Amendment, residential property taxes are limited to 45 percent of all property taxes in Colorado.  Every other kind of property covers the other 55 percent.  To keep that equation balanced, residential property tax rates will likely decline in 2018, according to Mark Chapin.
