Key To The Rockies Real Estate — Blog

Celebrate Winter

Celebrating the season that brought us all here. Sure, you’ve seen in our previous blogs that we’ve found something to love about each season, but winter was our first true love here, and we know we’re not alone. The majority of our community moved here to ski!

Looking to the Past to Understand the Future

Real estate has been an incredibly hot topic over the past year. With trends that most haven’t seen in decades, there have been many uncertainties and questions regarding the state of the industry throughout 2021. Understanding the trends throughout the years can significantly help make sense of the current market.

Listing Your Mountain Real Estate

Timing is everything. If you think the Summer buying season is over and you need to wait until next year, think again! The real estate market continues to trend in ways that we haven’t seen in many years past, and if the thought of selling your Summit County property has crossed your mind a time or two, read on to see if your intuition is telling you something.

Summit County: Colorado's *Summer* Playground

Summit County is considered “Colorado’s Playground” for good reason. Boasting 300+ days of sunshine, there are endless chances to celebrate and enjoy the great outdoors. Here are just a few of our favorite things about our home town in the summertime….

Real Estate Lingo - What does it all mean?

Real Estate is a jargon-heavy industry, which can aid in those new to the market feeling left out, uninformed, and just straight up lost. To help you navigate this vocabulary, we’ve compiled a list of terminology.

The Housing Market - What's Really Going On?

Inventory has hit record lows. Days on the market are now measured in hours. Home prices are steadily rising, and more existing homes were sold in 2020 than in any year since 2006. America’s housing market is officially over-heating. This seemingly spiraling phenomenon is actually not so complex, and we hope to adequately explain a bit of what’s currently going on out there.

Shoulder Season in Summit County

Shoulder season, Mud season, Mayuary, 3rd Winter, or Spring. Call it what you will, but there is a distinct period of time in the high Rockies that just doesn’t fall in line with what the average person expects out of April & May. Having lived here for 35 years, we know to expect the unexpected, and this time of year has become one of the endearing aspects of life at elevation.

Getting on the Property Ladder Early

In the age of rising house prices and student debt, getting on the property ladder early in life can seem pretty impossible to young people. While buying a home is a huge step and can be a daunting process, this reality doesn’t have to be as out of reach as it might appear.

The Importance of Building Equity

Home ownership is, simply put, part of the American Dream. The idea is that homeownership creates a path for building wealth over time, helping you to create financial stability.  If you’re new to the game, or could use a refresher, we’re going to look at what this means exactly, and how it can enhance your net worth.

2021: Loving this career & this market boom

A happy side effect of the pandemic is that it has allowed us all to make lifestyle changes - many for the better - and to re-align our priorities to focus on what really matters. What really matters to us is this community, and helping people find the keys to their dream home, as we did 30 years ago here in Summit County, Colorado.

How Do Real Estate Agents Determine Property Prices

Whether you’re buying or selling, surely you’ve hit the MLS matrix and wondered, “Why on earth is that home priced like that?”, and whether that’s in a negative or positive light, there are several key factors that are taken into consideration when determining property prices.

Great Local Businesses to Support This Season

Unless you’ve been under a rock this year (lucky!), you’ve been sure to notice the struggle that some of our beloved community shops, restaurants and services have undergone. We thought we’d take a break from the real estate market, and give you some local insight on some of our favorite local spots to support this season, whether you’re local, second homeowner, or visiting, we hope you find something useful here!
