SOLDS are for the past several days and range from around $285,000- up to over $14,000,000-.  It is quite a range of property values for sure.  What is important simply is there is a property out there for you most likely at a price which is affordable for you.

UNDER CONTRACT properties are those pending with an accepted offer by the seller from a buyer and they are now working through the process to meet all of the contractual terms, be it an inspection, financing, or it could be one or more of many other terms to yet be fulfilled.  Some meet all the requirements and move to the SOLD category others do not and may then return to LISTINGS back on the market.  The range of listed properties UNDER CONTRACT are from $275K to over $2.2M.

PRICE REDUCTIONS on average is $42,650- of Listed properties.  Keep in mind the spread of Listing prices are from the $400K to over $2.4M.  Regardless, there are motivated sellers and is this the time for you to make your move?

NEW LISTINGS on the market are located from East Vail to Gypsum.  They range in listing price from $465K up to $3.2M.  Is this in your price range?  Could this be one of the areas you are considering?

fishing

 

 

Nice day in Eagle County-Vail to get some exercise, but I am in the office, obviously blogging.  A Blue Bird Day.  Golf, biking, fishing Gore Creek or the Eagle River and hiking and snow shoeing would be high on the list.  2 game 7’s and 1 game 1 in the NBA and golf in New Orleans and ice hockey are available for TV people.  Forget the talk shows, I need a break from politics.  I’ll get some of the sports action in the office where we have a TV.  Yes, I know I should stay busy with real estate and would more if you would visit so we could discuss selling your property here or buying a property here or just finding out what it is worth. 

The Vail Daily has a nice article beginning on the 1st page about the busy action of March sales with one of our Gateway Real Estate pros Robert Schilling being prominently quoted numerous times.  When he is not skiing in the winter or hiking in the summer, he is hard core real estate the rest of the time.  I am a little more laid back.  Give either of us a call or Don Galgan or Betty Guffey, a few of the other agents in the Vail office a call.  Don and I were in kindergarten together and reacquainted after that as campers in Cheley Camps many years ago.  Betty Guffey is a good gal from Dallas. 

Arrowhead

Check out the website (Gatewaytovail.com) to see all the agents working for Gateway here in the Vail and the Edwards offices.  Suzie Apple, our owner/Broker, is a top broker in the Valley and helped get Arrowhead off the ground.  The stories she can tell are very interesting about numerous subjects.  When I show Arrowhead (aka County Club of the Rockes) I would not think of not having her along if possible.  I hope you have a good day.  It’s a beautiful day in Colorado, Bob

In case you have missed it…and I’m guessing you have, I have continued my streak of putting my listings under contract in under 30 days. Over 60% of these listings had previously been listed for an extended time with other brokers at the same or lower price. So, not only am I getting fast results, I am getting my client a higher price for their property.

If you find yourself thinking about listing your home, or are having problems selling your home, give me a call. I will meet with you and give you an honest no non-sense evaluation of your property with no obligation. As my record shows, I do not collect listings, I sell listings. I focus on providing my clients with the individual attention and care that I would want selling my home. I take every listing as a personal challenge to get the maximum dollar for their home in the least amount of time.

Next time you are looking for a Broker in Eagle County, remember you have choices…but most of all, remember Greg Peterson!

Remember you can always follow me on Facebook and Twitter.

Did you know that Cordillera was selected as one of the top 25 golf communities in the nation, and the only one in that group which is in Colorado?  Cordillera has three world-class 18 hole golf courses, the Tom Fazio-designed Valley course, the Mountain course designed by Hale Irwin, and a Jack Nicklaus Signature Summit course at an altitude of 9100 feet.  Also in Cordillera is the Dave Pelz-designed 10-hole Short Course, where the Pelz organization teaches its short game techniques.

The community activities in Cordillera are endless.  There are tennis facilities and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools.  There are athletic centers, an ice rink, the Vail Valley’s premier Nordic ski terrain, 23 miles of hiking trails, an equestrian center, and over one mile of private Blue Ribbon trout river.  Small trout in the several community ponds which are stocked are 16 inchers!

remodeled kitchen

A common question that I get from potential home sellers, in some form or another, is should I remodel in order to sell my home and if so what do I need to do? Of course every house and every market varies, but the National Association of Realtors put together a Remodeling Impact Report for 2015 and it offers some interesting insights. I’ve outlined the top five projects with the highest return on investment.

Regarding this data, here’s how it was compiled. Projected costs of the projects were compiled through the responses to a survey that was sent to the members of the National Association of Remodeling Industry (NARI) members. The assumption for costs was based on an average home size of 2450 square feet in good condition. The remodeling was assumed to be standard quality not particularly high or low end.

New Roofing

A new roof offers the highest return on investment of all projects. The estimated cost is $7600.00 and the percentage of value recovered from the project is 105%. One thing to note, in my experience roofing in Los Angeles tends to be more expensive. I find most roofing projects tend to be in the range of $10,000 – $15,000.

hardwood floors

Hardwood Floor Refinish

The main purpose of this type of project is to upgrade worn out surfaces and improve the overall aesthetic of the home. I do believe that beautiful hardwood floors make an overall impact that’s hard to top. NARI cost estimate is $2500 and percentage of value recovered is 100%.

New Wood Flooring

If there are no hardwood floors to re-finish it can still be very worthwhile to install them. The NARI cost estimate is $5500 and the percentage of value recovered is 91%.

New Vinyl Windows

New vinyl windows will boost a home’s energy efficiency significantly, decrease exterior noise profoundly and improve overall functionality. I find that new windows impart a sense of ease and relief to would-be homebuyers. It’s an upgrade everyone feels good about. NARI cost estimate is $15,000 and percentage of value recovered is 80%

Kitchen Upgrade to Complete Kitchen Renovation

The kitchen is the heart and soul of a home and creates one of the biggest impacts on would-be buyers. Of course there’s a wide variety of what can be done. The estimate below covers a modest upgrade such as cabinet re-surfacing and new solid-surface countertops to completely gutting a kitchen and installing everything brand new. The NARI cost estimate runs from $30,000 – $60,000 and the percentage of value recovered across the board is 67%.

Again, these results were based on a national poll. If you’d like more specific information tailored to our specific Los Angeles market and micro-markets don’t hesitate to reach out. I’d be happy to share my insights and even recommend some great homes that you can check out.

We dug into our historical records to look at how long home buyers have searched for the homes they purchased over the years and the number of homes they viewed during that process. Our main finding was that despite major changes in the housing market, ups and downs in the economy, and the advent of the digital age, home buyers searched for roughly the same amount of time and looked at the same number of houses in more than three decades. The differences were only a few weeks, not years, and a couple of homes, not hours spent on the search. Let’s look at the minor fluctuations that have occurred.

The Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers report was first launched in 1981. In the 1980’s—1990’s, it was conducted only every two years. By 2004, the survey was conducted every year accompanied by its annual release, marking the report as one of the most popular and insightful research studies on the home buying and selling market from the perspective of consumers.

search

 

Decade Trends

  • For most of the 1990’s, home buyers searched for a median of two months; they looked at 12 homes in the early ‘90’s and 10 homes by the end of the decade.
  • For a majority of the 2000’s, home buyers still searched only two months; by 2009—2010 they were looking for nearly three months. During that decade, home buyers looked at a median of 10 homes for most years, with a slight dip to nine homes during 2004—2006.
  • During the 2010’s, home buyers look for homes for 12 weeks until 2014 and 2015 when it bumped back down to only 10 weeks. At the beginning of the decade, buyers looked at a median of 12 homes. In the last four years, they looked at only 10 homes.
  • 2004—2006 home buyers searched for eight weeks and looked at nine homes, the shortest period of time according to the report.
  • 2009—2011 buyers searched for 12 weeks and looked at 12 homes, the longest search time according to the report.

You probably know that home listings go up most often on Thursdays and Fridays. Here is the data to back up your intuition:

  • As we start the New Year, this is a good time to take a look and recap the year behind us to see what insights 2014 holds for 2015. While December 2015 is still preliminary, we can get a good sense of the year by looking at the data we currently have for the past 12 months[1]. In our first posts, we looked at popular and least common closing dates. Here, we’ll take a look at listings.
  • Below, we see the most popular listing days of 2015. Note the strong preponderance of spring dates and obvious lack of weekends.
  • The biggest months for new listings are April, May, and June, followed by March and July. These months alone accounted for roughly half of all new listings in this analysis.
  • While not devoid of new listings, the weekends are obviously not popular days to list. Among weekdays, Fridays and Thursdays are the most common days for new listings to go up, with Mondays and Wednesdays trailing a bit and Tuesdays not too far behind. Tuesdays and weekends are the only days of the week absent in the top 25 days for listings.
  • While home closings exhibit a strong tendency to get done at the end of the month, listings are much steadier throughout the course of the month with a slight tendency to be posted earlier rather than later.
