Vail real estate

The latest county-wide real estate appraisal found the total market value of Eagle County real estate jumped 12.9 percent, with residential value jumping 11.4 percent compared to the last appraisal numbers from 2015.  According to Eagle County Assessor Mark Chapin, our real estate values are back to where we were pre-recession.  Our market has recovered.

Residential property values are around $1 billion more than the pre-recession peak, with residential property valued at $31.24 billion in 2009 and $32.39 billion in 2017.  The biggest increases are in Gypsum and Eagle where the affordable housing is supposed to be.  If you can find something between $250,000 and $500,000, that is the area where you will find it.  Properties tend to be closer to the half million mark than the lower price.

As property values go up, so do property taxes.  The property valuation notices will come out later this week.  In Eagle County, 45 percent of residential property value is second homes.  Those properties tend to be worth over $2 million each.  Around 60 percent of Eagle County’s property tax burden will be paid by second-home owners.  High end homes did not see the increases that the local markets did but they did not see their values plummet as hard when the recession hit.  A significant part of the overall property value increase was due to the number of local hotels that sold in Vail, which has not happened in many years.  The Park Hyatt sold for $145 million, the Four Seasons sold for $121 million, the Cascade sold for $90 million and the Vail Holiday Inn sold for $22.4 million.

In Colorado, properties are re-appraised every two years in odd numbered year.  This year’s  appraisal is based on market sales that occurred between January 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016.  Under Colorado’s Gallagher Amendment, residential property taxes are limited to 45 percent of all property taxes in Colorado.  Commercial and every other kind of property cover the other 55 percent.  Eagle County voters have seen a property tax hit from the four tax increases approved last year: Eagle County school district, Eagle County ambulance district, Eagle River Fire protection district and Gypsum Fire protection district.

As we approach October there are several happenings that ignite our excitment here at Gateway; Halloween festivites, tasty seasonal local brews, and coming together as a community to raise money and awarenss in the race to cure breast cancer.

Kicking off the fist of October with the 7th annual Pinktoberfest! Hosted by Eagle’s Dusty Boot Bar it’ll be fun for all ages!

  

Throughout October, Aria Spa & Club at the Vail Cascade Resort have a variety of ways that support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A month-long spa promotion and special yoga sessions will provide members and guests with ways to remain strong, building awareness of the prevention of the disease. The local beneficiary of all the charity events is the Shaw Regional Cancer Center in Edwards.For the third year, Aria Spa will donate $5 to the Shaw Regional Cancer Center for every massage, facial or body treatment that is booked in October. Additionally, the spa is offering a 40 percent discount on all massages, facials, and body treatments, and 20 percent off all nail services through Nov. 30. On Oct. 7 and 8, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Aria Club will host a new charity event to raise money to find a cure for breast cancer. The 24 Hours of Aria Challenge encourages participants to get a great cardio workout while supporting the cause, with a suggested donation of $5 for each half hour time slot. Select cardio fitness equipment will be reserved with pink ribbons just for the event. The two days of the event are free and open to all! The Aria tennis program is also involved in raising breast cancer awareness by holding the annual “Rally for the Cause” on Oct. 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. The tennis rally will kick off the action with a Longest Rally contest. WOW! Hard to pass up such incredible deals as well as positive active fun for the whole family!

This year, Shaw Regional Cancer Center is asking you, Eagle & Summit county residents, to share your messages of inspiration and hope through photography! Let your photo make a difference by positively impacting those who see it. Enter your photo at PinktoberPhoto.com or email your photo to Jeff.Owens@vvmc.com with your name and phone number, and we’ll post it for you.

Dogma Athletica in The Riverwalk at Edwards has teamed up with the Shaw Center to promote health and awareness and to give back to the community. Dogma is sponsoring a yoga challenge, encouraging yogis to stretch, sweat and decompress — not only to benefit their own well being, but to give back to those in need. For each yoga class attended, Dogma will donate 50 cents to the Shaw Center. The more classes attended, the more Dogma will donate. In the spirit of healthy competition, Dogma will be tracking how many classes each yogi attends, and the yogis who attend the most classes in the month of October will win prizes. Dogma will also encourage yogis to wear pink throughout the month of October in the spirit of breast cancer awareness.

The Village-to-Village Trail is the heart and sole of the interconnecting network of trails and skiways, making it the perfect pathway for exploring Beaver Creek Resort, which also includes Bachelor Gulch, Vail Co and Arrowhead at Vail. One can travel by foot, snowshoe or mountain bike a pathway stretching nearly six miles from Beaver Creek Resort’s Talons area all the way across Bachelor Gulch to McCoy Springs, above Arrowhead Village.  The trail is part of a larger system of “skiways” which locals use to enjoy the expansive, three village resort.  The trail officially begins or ends at 8,900 feet above sea level with the Beaver Lake Trail, 1.75 miles up the Beaver Creek Valley from Beaver Creek Village.  From this point, you have a 4 mile journey to Bachelor Gulch Village and another 2.5 miles to Arrowhead Village.  This trail is a wonderful area to see the explosion of wildflowers in early July because  the trail is closed until June 30 for elk calving.  Autumn at Beaver Creek Resort is wonderful time of year to immerse yourself in the magnificent golds and oranges of the aspens.  Snowshoeing is a great way to explore the Village-to-Village trail as well.  Happy hiking!

Vail Valley’s Fall Foliage is almost peaking!

With beautiful golden hues in dense Aspen filled meadows, trekking up Booth Falls Trail you are in a sea of lush Fall colors and smells!

Booth Falls hike

Along this hike be sure to stop and take a gaze behind you – for some of the best views are those behind you.

Booth Falls Trail head is located just off I-70 and although categorized as a strenuous hike, take your time and pace your hike so you can gaze at the endless Aspens maybe take a seat and enjoy a packed picnic?! There is no need to rush this experience.

Atop you’ll reach a refreshing waterfall which I welcome you to kick off your hiking boots and cool off as I do! If you’re up for it, hike another couple miles to Booth Lake where the deep blue water next to the rich gold aspens sure makes for quite the site!

Booth Falls Trail

Not only do you gain a greater sense of the beauty this incredible Valley has to offer you also gain elevation – stay hydrated hikers!

Happy Fall hiking!
