With over 70 homes for sale, the interested buyer has many options to choose from including condos priced below one million with ski in and ski out access. Arrowhead also offers  luxurious single family and duplex homes, along with easy access to the world class slopes of Beaver Creek and for the golfers, Arrowhead offers world class golf at the Country Club of the Rockies.

While Eagle County saw over $124 million in real estate sales, Lionshead Vail's numbers were not as impressive. 

One sale in Lionshead at the Ritz Carlton Residences put Lionshead at just 2% of the county's total dollar volume.  Thank goodness for the Ritz!

This Ritz Residence sale was a 2,107 sq ft 2 bedroom + den, 3 bath residence overlooking the pool that went for just under $3 million. 

Even the Ritz Carlton Residences is feeling the pinch in the market.  They're offering discounts and incentives to jump in now while Ever Vail is starting to move through the planning stages with Town of Vail.  And unlike some Ritz Residences, there are no owner usage fees at this one.

Hello again. Time for a year end review of the real estate activity at Red Sky Ranch in Wolcott, CO. 2011 was a solid year for transactions, with 7 homesite sales and 2 home sales. The big news is the saving buyers saw on their purchases!!

Red Sky Ranch was not immune from the recent national recession, and as such, the sales prices of recent homesites were at significant discounts from original purchase levels. For the 7 homesite sales, closing prices were on average 50% of what the prior owners paid.

There are currently 4 luxury residences listed for sale, ranging in price from $1,500,000 to $4,495,000 and 8 homesites ranging in price from $299,000 to $995,000. No properties are currently under contract.

Sellers' losses were buyer's gains and now is a great time to acquire a legacy property in one of the best golf course communities anywhere, Red Sky Ranch!!

Call Doug anytime to learn more about the Red Sky Ranch lifestyle and real estate opportunities!
