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.

The Real Estate Market finished strong in 2016 according to Land Title Guarantee Company.  There were 2,048 sales in 2016 which was a 1% decline from 2015.  The total sales volume was $1,957 billion which was also a 1% decline from 2015.  Eagle County has not exceeded $2 billion in a year since 2008.

Inventory remains fairly low especially in the price of $1 million or less and most buyers are local residents.  There is roughly a 6 month inventory in the $1 million or less priced homes which is a sign of a balanced market.  The most expensive home sold in Vail for $23 million which closed in January.  It was on the market for approximately 2 years.  The highest priced overall sale was $121 million which was the Four Seasons Vail.  The average price of a residential sale in Eagle County was $970,184.  Vail Village had the highest price per square foot for a single family home at $1,786 and the state with the most buyers came from Texas.

With snow piling up on our roadways; and more snow on it’s way… Vail re-enforces snowplow regulations.

Living in a quaint mountain town you may see many residents with plow trucks in their drive ways, if you’re lucky you might just have a nearby friend to help plow your driveway.

Here are some tips and rules that will help you organize your heaps of snow :)

By town ordinance in Vail, property owners and residences are responsible for maintaining their drive ways and side walks following a snow storm.  For pedestrian safety the town of Vail does not permit on the shoulder or on street parking. The town of Vail has a no tolerance attitude and automobiles parked illegally will be ticketed or even towed.
Please be cautious when driving on streets that have snow pilled high on the street corners; it may be difficult to see on coming traffic. Be careful! 

Other ideas include, being mindful of snow loads on roofs, keeping fire hydrants clear of snow and making sure kids’ snow caves are built a safe distance from the road.

Be careful out there!  And for more information on Town of Vail happenings stop in and visit me at our Vail Village location! Located near the international bridge on Gore Creek Drive!

I summer

Why do we call this wonderful time of year Indian Summer? There are many theories, “Indian Giver” is one of the better known sources for this term.

Indian Summer refers to very unseasonable warm and dry weather in late Autumn. There is usually a cold spell with frost preceding this most pleasurable time of year, which lures many into pondering what Winters blustery days might bring! Instead, much to our satisfaction, Indian Summer creeps in, giving us one last opportunity to savor the fading impressions of Summer…Never quite knowing if this magical time will be snatched away in an instant, much like the reputation of an Indian Giver!

Indian Summer here in the Vail Valley usually continues into mid-November, which means there’s still plenty of time left to get out there and take in the beauty that surrounds us!
