April is finally here and your garden soil is finally warming up! April is the best time to plant most of your vegetable seeds after your last frost. It’s still not too late to plant tomatoes and peppers from seeds as well.

Image result for gardening

Here’s a list of GREAT seeds to start planting N O W !

Beans:
Start planting both bush and pole beans now that the soil and air are warmed up. Try a continual 7-10 day sowing of different varieties. This will give you continual bean crops and not one large harvest with wasted crop.
Carrots:
Planting carrots by April will give an early summer crop..
Herbs:
Plant heat loving herbs like basil, oregano, thyme and sage.
Peppers:
Fresh, crisp peppers are a garden favorite. Peppers take up little space and can produce high yields when planted close together. Plant as many different varieties as possible. They come small, big, hot, mild, and an array of different colors.
Summer Squash:
Yum! Summer squash sowing in June will lead to fresh squash and zucchini in July and August.
Tomatoes:
The most popular garden vegetable. Growing tomatoes is not only fun but treats you to some of the best tasting fruits in the world. Tomatoes come in many colors, shapes, taste, and sizes. Grow a few varieties every year to find your favorites!

Enjoy beautiful Vail weather and start planting your seeds!

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.

black-cabinets-brass-hardware

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

hardworking cabinets in the kitchen 2

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 on white bedroom

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.

Landry room laundry room with shelves

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 shower outdoor feeling shower 1

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.

large-walk-in-closet-with-white-theme-and-daybed

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.

Founded in 1996, The Bookworm of Edwards started in a van. Kathy Westover would travel between coffee shops selling new books to down-valley readers. The next summer, she partnered with former bookkeeper Neda Jansen to open an actual bricks-and-mortar bookstore in November 1997. The Bookworm drastically jumped in size from the back seat of a van to 700 square feet.

So the next time you’re in The Riverwalk pop into Gateway Real Estate and introduce yourself to one of our awesome local brokers! Then you can prowl across the street and enjoy the wonderful surroundings of Vail Valley’s independent bookstore, The Bookworm.

Vail real estate

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.
