Real Estate Sales!? Certainly a hot topic throughout the United States this summer and fall.? National news, both with the housing market and mortgage industry, has been less than exciting, if not downright scary for many people.? While not immune to national trends and perceptions, the Vail Valley real estate market has stayed solid throuhgout the summer of ’07 and looks good for the fall as well.?

In the past several years,?this strength has primarily been for the benefit of the sellers, and now, it has shifted to the buyers.

Inventories throughout the valley rose sharply this summer (approx. 30% from the spring) and have just started to come off from their high points.? Fall is often a time when listings will be pulled from the market,?some becoming rentals, as well as owners deciding to keep their vaction homes for another year.

Properties are staying on the market unsold for longer periods and we are seeing price reductions becoming commonplace.? Eagle County will likely see a new record in Total $$ Sales Volume?in?2007?(over $2.8 Billion) while the number of transactions will be down, driving?the average sale price up significantly.

To discuss the real estate market here in the Vail Valley in more detail, please contact me anytime.

Eagle Ranch now has?a new project breaking ground.? Sylvan Square is offering a less expensive option for new construction here in the Vail Valley.?

Sylvan Square

Located across the street from the new fitness facility, Sylvan Square is composed of 2 bedroom/1.75 bathroom condos starting at $366,000.? The units are expected to be about 1100 square feet, with a good level of finishes.? This great location is walking distance to the movie theater, restaurants, the school, the new medical facility, and even Starbucks.

To learn more about the Vail Valley real estate market and this great new project, call or email me anytime.

Whether you like the proposed Edwards Condominiums or not, the project is now on hold until a land use issue is resolved.? There is a question as to if the land above the Edwards Corner is able to be built on, or if it should stay open space.? The developer (Remonov & Co) hopes to build high-end condos (starting around $2M) designed by Daniel Libeskind.? (world renowned architect)

The designs I have seen are not in keeping with the current feel of the community.? The developer has said the building should be the focal point of Edwards, where I see the surrounding landscape as the focus.? And from most parts of Edwards, the 4-5 story building will dominate the view, not complement the mountains in the background.? (you can’t see the?Sawatch Range?unless you’re up by I-70, somewhat misleading from their rendering in the attached article)

And I doubt local buyers will be the ones to spend $2M to $3M for a condo.? It would seem to appeal to the out-of-town buyer.? I have no problem with a project being built in this spot, but have it blend with the community and the surroundings, not overwhelm it.

Please feel free to call or email anytime to discuss this project, or the Eagle County real estate market in general.
