With the temperatures dropping, the leaves turning yellow,?and the snow falling, winter appears to be right around the corner in the Vail Valley.? Of course, we see this to some degree every year. . .summer is too short, fall barely happened, and now the snow is covering the Gore Range.? Fortunately, we all love to ski, snowboard?or just get out and?play in this winter wonderland we call home!? And I’m sure we’ll still have some great fall days in the VERY near future.? (It’s only September 21st!)
Many locals look to buy or sell real estate in the shoulder months (May, June, October, November) and this year is shaping up to be no different.? With inventories at a year long high, the near term market is favoring buyers.? Many sellers have already reduced the asking price for their homes and condos.? NOW is the time to seek out the best buys on the market, before the winter activities bring more people.

A recent article in the Vail Daily sheds light on what those of us that live here have known for years, that Edwards is a great place to live and work!???Many locals?that moved to the Vail Valley to ski,?now find themselves enjoying?the longer summer days in the lower elevations of Edwards.
Edwards is the largest residential community in Eagle County.? There is a wonderful mix of single family homes, duplexes, townhomes and comdominiums that appeal to a wide variety of tastes and budgets.? The neighborhoods of Homestead, Singletree, Arrowhead and Lake Creek appeal to families as well as young professionals.
Restaurants, shops, and services now abound in Edwards, and it truly has?become the heart of the Vail Valley. (Not to take anything away from Vail, for it is the reason most of us are here, but for the “not-in-their-early-twenties-anymore” crowd, Edwards is the place to be.)?
There are currently about 165 active residential listings, ranging in price from the low $300K’s to the multiple millions.? And that?does not include the homes and homesites in Cordillera.
Gateway Land and Development Company, founded by Suzi Apple, is one of the premier real estate firms in the entire Vail Valley.? Gateway is located in the Edwards Village, just past Hwy 6 off Edwards Village Blvd., across the street from eat!drink!?and next to the Gore Range Brewery.
