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.

Being a Colorado mover and shaker myself I am itching to see snow fall and get on top of the mountain; thankfully The Bookworm over in Edwards Riverwalk keeps me creative and intrigued with their long list of fun free to-do’s…

The Bookworm not only is conveniently located near across the street to our Gateway Real Estate office in Edwards but they share many options for tasty healthy eats as well as ‘keep you going’ drinks like their americano which is my personal favorite.

This week the Bookworm shares with us the stories of Doug Coombs as he will be live and in the flesh at The Bookworm discussing his life as a legendary extreme skier traveler. If you haven’t picked up the thrilling read, Tracking the Wild Coomba: The Life of Legendary Skier Doug Coombs I suggest you do as it gets readers in the mood for ski season and quiets some of our fears as extreme mountain seekers.

So while we’re still praying for snow take a stroll over to Edwards… Take a browse at the copious listings we have in beautiful Colorado and elsewhere and we invite you to come into our office; sit down with a broker and get those questions answered.  The Bookworm hosts Doug Coombs this Thursday November 10th from 4-6PM

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!
