Eagle County real estate continues to get back on track after a sluggish start to 2016 according to Land Title Guarantee Company.  April’s sales volume of $125 million is 10% higher than April of last year at $114 million.  Sales volume year to date is almost $460 million which is just 6% shy of year to date sales volume in 2016.

There were 130 transactions in April. The April 130 transactions average sales price was $969,023.  Eagle and Gypsum had the majority of these transactions with 21 and 13 respectively.  East Vail had a strong showing with 9 transactions, and Arrowhead with 8 transactions.  Beaver Creek had 7 transactions with more than $16 million in sales volume with the highest home sale of $8,475 million.

47% of the real estate buyers were local buyers, 19% of the buyers were from the front range and 77% of the April sales were priced at a $1 million or less.  The inventory is still low in the range of under $1 million and most homes are selling within 30 days of coming on the market.  The market of $5 million and above is still a little slow.

A recent article in the Vail Daily summarized data compiled by the Land Title Guarantee Company on seven Colorado mountain resort counties that indicated promising signs of a recovering Vail real estate market.  Eagle County, home of Vail and Beaver Creek ski resorts, as well as the Cordillera and Singletree golf communities, had almost $2 billion in sales in 2015 on over 2000 transactions.




The decline in foreclosure sales has been significant.  While comprising almost 20% of the 2010 sales, in 2015 the foreclosure sales were only 1.9% of the total.  Also, the big increase in volume in the resort markets indicates that the demand for second homes has made a resurgence.  There has been a strong primary home market in the Denver area for several years as businesses and young people have discovered the excellent year round active life style that Colorado offers, and that has undoubtedly helped the resort markets.  Of the seven mountain resort counties, Eagle County was second in new construction units sold, which is a double digit increase over 2014.

All this bodes well for both buyers and sellers.  For sellers, prices are increasing.  For buyers, even the risk averse are realizing that we are emerging from a long slump, and that this is an excellent time to make a purchase.

Are you contemplating about whether you are buying or building yourself a custom-made home? Newly renovated homes can be very heart warming, but nothing would beat a custom-made home that have considered all your needs today and in the future. An old home renovated to fit your needs can carry with it a lot of character, but a house that has been especially designed for you will make your living conditions even more special.


Apart from the serious maintenance problems that come with old homes, here are the tops reasons why a custom-built home is perfect for you. This list will convince you that getting your home built from scratch should be the only way to go.

Your house will look like its own

You don’t have to live in a house that looks much like other people’s houses. When you have a custom builder plan ahead for you, they will make sure that their design will fit your personal taste. It is not just about having the right number of rooms or having the toilet positioned where you want it to. It is about having a home that fits your life now and is prepared for what the future may bring.

Unparalleled Construction

If you want to be careful in choosing all the details of your home, a custom built home is for you. Not only will you be involved in the planning, but you will be able to witness how your home is built. More importantly, if something goes wrong in the future, you will be the knowledgeable home owner that you are. Knowing all the nicks and knacks of your home should always be a priority.

Amazing Landscape


The outdoor space of your home should also be included in the planning. The indoors is not the only part of your house. You have to make sure that you invest in your outdoor space too. Keep in mind that a beautiful outdoor space will improve the value of your home by as much 30%.

One of the biggest worries that homeowners have about custom built homes is the cost. And yet when you look at the bigger picture, investing in a home that is built with your needs in mind is more cost-efficient than buying a house with all the parts gone wrong.

For more information on finding the perfect lot to build your dream custom home, call Greg Peterson at 970-331-1333. Home sites available throughout the Vail Valley in Vail, Beaver Creek, Cordillera, Bachelor Gulch, and many other communities.
