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?

While countless ski resorts across America offer great skiing options to escape with the family for the holidays, not all resorts offer fun for the whole family. Vail and Beaver Creek made Forbes' list for 10 best Ski Resorts for Family Friendly Vacations. Vail and Beaver Creek, like other ski destinations that offer kid friendly options, include the following:

  • Group and private instruction geared towards children of all ages with dedicated teaching areas on the slopes
  • Free or discounted lift tickets, equipment rentals, and lessons for children
  • Day care or kid's camps with a variety of activities for non-skiers
  • Evening and non-ski day family entertainment in the town. Vail's Adventure Ridge is an entire complex devoted to non-skiing activities such as tubing, ice skating and ski biking
  • Variety of reasonably priced family restaurants and lodging that caters to families. Visit Bol in Vail, a bowling alley with gourmet food, or Cobb Cine Bistro, a luxurious movie theater that serves delicious meals (kid menus included)
