Four Seasons Vail

The Four Seasons Resort and Residences sold for a record $121 million.  The sales price of $902,985 per room for the 134-room luxury hotel sets a new price standard, according to CBRE Hotels, the company that put the deal together. The average price in the luxury hotel market was $851,000 per room in 2015.  The record price reflects both the market’s stature and the product’s premium.  New York-based Extell Development Company and Chinese firm Parkland Holdings partnered to buy the Four Seasons.  Barclays had owned the resort since 2009, when it took control of the project when it was still under construction.

The Four Seasons is known for their world-class service, luxury finishes and robust amenity package.  The AAA Four Diamond hotel features 121 hotel guestrooms and 13 two-to-four bedroom condominiums that are currently operating as hotel inventory.  Amenities include a 14,935 square foot space, 7,000 square feet of meeting and event space, Flame restaurant and The Remedy Bar.  The resort also has ski valet facilities near the base of Vail’s Gondola One.

For Vail, the Four Seasons deal marks the second major resort transaction in the past 12 months.  Last December, Los Angeles-based Laurus Corporation purchased the 292-room Vail Cascade Resort and Spa for approximately $90 million and almost immediately announced plans for a $35 million renovation during the off-season. Holiday Inn Vail also traded hands in January for $22.4 million.  A private East Coast group purchased the hotel is renovating and re-positioning the hotel as a Double Tree, according to CBRE.

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?

It is the best time of year here in the Vail Valley and neighbors and friends are continuing to improve the outdoor spaces of their homes, properties and real estate. A friend referred me to a great article, Five super easy projects to make hanging outside fun again (according to HouseLogic.) Whether you love to entertain friends or sit in the sun with a cocktail and noval, here are some easy ways to put new life in your patio or outdoor space.

  1. Stop the pesky critters from digging.  Add pine cones instead of regular mulch.  Mischievous pets will be less inclined to dig holes in a sea of spiny cones.  Pine cones decompose slowly and make many plants happy,
  2. Pop some color on that ancient concrete.  Cover up the dilapidated patio with color in a can and create colorful designs,
  3. Ditch the rust but not the furniture.  If your patio furniture is covered in rust, replacing it can be expensive.  There are several ways to remove corrosion.  Use a wire brush, sandpaper or steel wool.  For less effort you can use a drill with a wire brush attachment.  Paint over the treated areas and the furniture will be ready for your white shorts.
  4. Conquer the clutter.  If scattered empty pots make your patio look cluttered consider adding storage.  An inexpensive solution is to paint wooden crates to match or patio furniture or paint bright colors.  Add a sealant to weather proof the wood.  This will keep all of your items neat and tidy.
  5. Build a fire pit. A mini fire pit can serve as a visual focal point while adding more fun and function to your patio.  Make sure your patio is constructed with fire safe materials before attempting this project and follow local fire codes.  (Sorry, wooden deck lovers).  You can create your own fire pit with heat resistant pavers (also, called fire bricks).  Stack two layers of them in a small circle about six bricks in circumference on top of a stone slab, this creates a mini fire pit.  Now it’s time to make s’mores and enjoy the outdoors.

smoke detector

As fall approaches and the temperatures drop outside, homeowners start turning up the heat inside.  Some homeowners turn to space heaters for heat which increases the risk of fire danger.

To safeguard yourself, Pillar to Post offers the following safety tips:

  • Check all electrical devises – including lamps, appliances and electronics for frayed cords, loose or broken plugs and exposed wiring.
  • Never place electrical wires under carpet or rugs.
  • Hire a professional chimney sweep every year to clean the chimney.  This prevents the buildup of creosote, which can cause flash fires inside the chimney.
  • Keep space heaters away from anything that might catch fire, including beds, curtains, and papers.  Never leave space heaters unattended where they can be knocked over by a pet or child.
  • Place candles in stable holders and far away from curtains and other flammable items.  Never leave candles unattended, even briefly.
  • Be sure batteries are working in smoke detectors, and that smoke detectors are installed in every level of the house and near every sleeping area.  According to Pillar and Post, nearly 60% of home fire fatalities occur in homes without working smoke alarms.
  • Have an escape plan in case of a fire and discuss this plan with all family members.

The National Fire Protection Association is recommending that all smoke alarms be replace every 10 years.  Homeowners should know how old all the smoke alarms are in your home.  To find out how old your smoke alarms are, look at the date of the manufacture on the back of the alarm.  For more tips on preventing house fires you may visit the National Fire Protection Association website.
