Summit Real Estate

fter one of the best snow years on record, we are enjoying a blissful, Colorado mountain summer. As the local saying goes, “We came here for the winter, but stayed for the summer.” Our crystal ball readings and recent trends? Our brokers are loaded with first-hand, up-to-date research on the local market that we’ll happily share with you. What we’re noticing at press time:

Welcome to Summertime in the heart of the Rocky Mountains!

• Summit County overall activity has picked up a bit over last year. Number of sales is up, but dollar volume is showing very close to the same as last year; showing a downward trend in pricing and prices of properties that are being sold. • Inventory is down from last year – foreclosure and short sale activity is up a bit, but not by leaps and bounds. There are some really great deals to be found in the “retail” marketnot just the “wholesale” market of foreclosures and short sales. We can get you all the details on these properties and help you find the best property for your situation. • We do anticipate higher inventory coming on the market this summer along with the buyers who typically come here to ski in the winter and come back to buy in the summer! • This year, over 50% of all Summit County transactions were from cash buyers – no financing involved. There are people out there who have money to spend and are recognizing that resort real estate is an excellent investment in lifestyle. Maybe you’re one of them. • We do anticipate the prices will continue to fall and that we are at the top of our market for the foreseeable future. So, why should you buy now? While price is a major concern for Sellers, COST should be the primary concern if you’re a buyer. Take into account the total monthly payment, not just the price tag. The interest rate – the money it costs you for a mortgage is important if you are getting a loan. If you plan to pay cash, you need to know that you are using your money in the best place, and that it’s not better spent somewhere else that might have a higher rate of interest. Waiting for prices to hit the bottom while interest rates are increasing can wind up costing much more over the time you own the property. The projection is that interest rates will be increasing over the next several quarters. Looking at the big picture will help you make a decision, and remember the real reason you are likely buying here in the first place – lifestyle! The enjoyment you and your family will have together and the connection to your spirit you will find in these mountains is priceless. START LOOKING! Explore these pages and see what fires you up – what gets you thinking and gets your imagination working!

s we soak up Colorado’s cobalt-blue skies and magnificent starry nights it is difficult not to take for granted "another day in paradise". There is an underlying melody to life in Summit County.

SilvertHorne - The Gateway to Summit County

Silverthorne eyes a new downtown design A
fter town officials, business owners and citizens met with economic development and planning experts during Silverthorne's town core assessment process, town officials now have information they can use to develop a new downtown. Four focus groups in late March brought people together to discuss what constitutes a vibrant commercial core. They were led by a team of nine experts assembled by Silverthorne's project partners, Downtown Colorado, Inc. and the Colorado Department of Local Affairs. The primary recommendation that came out of the meeting was to use 4th Street at a “core axis” for the area, meant to enhance pedestrian connectivity to existing public amenities such as the Silverthorne Recreation Center, Rainbow Park, the Blue River Trail, Silverthorne Pavilion and the Silverthorne Transit Center. “Silverthorne's Town Core area is a great canvas on which to build a strong identity for the town,” said Katherine Correll, executive director of Downtown Colorado, Inc. “It's not something that happens overnight, but the assessment team felt that there were some small steps that could get the ball rolling. The team felt that the 4th Street core axis was a potential starting point.” To make pedestrian connections within the area deemed the “civic core,” the group recommended creating a

pedestrian-focused plaza east of the existing pedestrian bridge near the Silverthorne Pavilion. It would connect the Pavilion and the recreation center more formally, and provide an outdoor space for public gatherings, town spokesman Ryan Hyland said. “The town council has yet to have an opportunity to meet formally to discuss their initial thoughts on the presentation, but once that occurs we will begin looking at concepts they would like to see explored in more detail,” town manager Kevin Batchelder said. The presentation of information collected during the focus groups is available online at www.silverthorne.org and at www. summitnews.com. It's also being aired on Summit County Television on cable channel 10 at 1 p.m. and 10 p.m. daily. In the coming weeks, a narrative report and recommended action matrix should be provided to town officials by the team of experts, Hyland said. Contact Ryan Hyland at (970) 262-7319 or ryan.hyland@silverthorne.org with questions or comments about the town core revitalization project.

dillon - Four Seasons of Fun

Beer, Walls & Water
A
long time Dillon favorite, Pug Ryan’s Steakhouse & Brewery, will be expanding this summer thanks to Dillon’s Urban Renewal Authority which was created to improve the town’s center and encourage development. The town owned land was essentially given to the restaurant owner on the condition that he is able to construct and commence the project he proposed. Town manager Devin Granbery says “It makes improvements to an existing business, it improves the aesthetics of the area, it improves the functionality of the area, creates more opportunities for more jobs and engages the street front. There are a lot of things that forward the goal of the urban renewal authority as far as revitalization of our town center.” From Pug Ryan’s standpoint, the overall goal of the project is to create more brewing capacity space, but also includes a new deck, new bathrooms and an updated entryway. The restaurant expansion will bring the restaurant more forward on the street to encourage more people to stop in. The project is expected to be completed by November and the restaurant owner is getting bids from local contractors and is working with a local bank on financing. A year after the 60 foot retaining wall behind Walgreens in Dillon failed, plans for reconstruction and project funding are nearly finalized. The Town of Dillon, Walgreens Company and Pace-Dillon Associate, the property owner, are entering into a joint agreement concerning the funding of the hillside and wall’s restoration, repair and possible relocation of the water line and repair of Little Beaver Trail. Construction contracts are still being completed, but work is anticipated to begin in early July. Little Beaver Trail will close during reconstruction, which should take about three months. The estimated cost for the project is $1.4 million, including a 20% contingency. Although the three entities have reached an understanding regarding construction and funding, there still isn’t any agreement as to who is at fault. While it is known that a push-on joint in an underground water line separated and released about 170,000 gallons of water, it is unclear whether the water caused the slope to fail, or a failing slope caused the joint to come apart and release the water. The Colorado River Cooperative Agreement is a proposed agreement between 33 Western Slope communities and Denver Water that is being heralded as a historic accord that’s good for Summit County and Denver Water as well as the Western Slope. As Denver Water takes on responsibilities such as defining its service area, recycling and reusing water, setting conservation goals and timelines, Summit County reaps many benefits. In particular, county municipalities and ski resorts get more water, some of which is free and some has conditions. That translates into a firmer supply in dry years for towns and ski resort snowmaking, which likely means a more protected economy. Denver Water has also agreed to maintain the Dillon Reservoir water level at or above 9,012 feet in elevation between June 18 and Labor Day. It’s the critical level for Frisco Marina to be operational, helping drive the county’s summertime economy. A one-time $11 million windfall from Denver Water comes to the county for wastewater treatment plant improvement, environmental enhancements, forest health projects and local water and sewer work. The hope is to have all the parties in the agreement signed on by the end of 2011.

FriSCo - Quaint, Historic, Friendly and Diverse

Frisco moving ahead with economic incentives
A
fter examining several incentive programs in March to boost the local economy, Frisco Town Council decided to put two into action by passing both ordinances on the first reading. The first establishes a temporary program — to run until Dec. 31 of this year — that reimburses commercial property or business owners with 50 percent of building permit fees for commercial projects. Eligible applicants include commercial property and business owners with a building permit to construct, add upon or improve a commercial space. The rebate would be dependent on the owner receiving a certificate of occupancy and being compliant with town codes. The ordinance also calls for an expedited review process for large commercial projects. “Staff feels it is important to consider anything that would benefit (Frisco) businesses,” executive assistant Theresa Paul said to council Tuesday night. Paul said because permit refunds are dependent on the size of the project, staff is unsure of the cost to the town. The second ordinance is also a temporary program (also running until the end of this year), and would provide a 50 percent reimbursement — up to $5,000 — for signs, landscaping and facade improvements to local businesses. To qualify, properties must be zoned for commercial purposes and be visible from Main Street or Summit Boulevard right-of-ways. Eligible improvements include exterior painting or siding, lighting, trees, shrubs or public artwork. The incentive has a program cap of $25,000. At Tuesday's meeting, town manager Michael Penny said staff felt the limit was a good place to start, and would return to council for direction if there is “overwhelming demand.” Community development director Jocelyn Mills said she has already received calls from interested business owners regarding the facade incentive. To qualify for either incentive, applicants must be in good financial standing with the town. Paul said both items were researched per council's direction in March. She said staff hopes the incentives will give business owners and developers encouragement to start a project they might be waiting to start. While both objectives passed on first reading, a lone objection was made by Councilmember Larry Sawyer, who did not approve the ordinance regarding facade improvements.

BreCKenridGe - A Real Town With Unreal Skiing

Sustainable Breck & Cucumber Gulch
groundwork for long-term projects such as a community solar garden and bike-share program and also describes ongoing objectives. The process began with a capacity analysis several years ago examining the realistic buildout that could be accommodated in the basin. That evaluation was followed up with a “2030 report” in which the town looked ahead to the year 2030 to try to project how the community would grow and evolve in the coming years. Last summer, the town held five public meetings to gather community input. A sustainability task force, made up of three town council members, then took the findings and public feedback and developed the action plan – a prioritized list of steps intended to allow the community to enjoy local resources without compromising the ability of future generations to enjoy them as well, town officials said. The sustainability goals fall under 10 headings: resource conservation, local economy, transportation, land use, water, housing, child care, wildlife habitat, forest health and recreation and open space. Cucumber Gulch, the most extensively monitored open space area in Breckenridge and Summit County for its size, plays host this summer to a study that interests recreation planners and managers across the United States. When the Breckenridge Town Council approved purchasing nine new motion-sensor cameras for use in the Cucumber Gulch Preserve monitoring efforts, they paved the way for researchers to study the impacts of trail recreation on wildlife. Cucumber Gulch is the Town of Breckenridge’s most bio-diverse and sensitive open space and also has the most competing interests with high-level development surrounding it – Breckenridge Ski Resort is to the west and Shock Hill neighborhood and the town are to the east and south. It’s been identified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as an Aquatic Resource of National Importance. The land has been targeted with more than $7 million in funding from the Breckenridge Town Council, whether it’s for land acquisitions or monitoring. The trail study using motion-sensor cameras is just a piece of the area’s ongoing research. Other topics include avian monitoring, watching beaver activity, keeping an eye on water quantity and quality, vegetation studies including a careful look at willows and the animals who eat them, amphibian monitoring and more.

Q&

A

How do I make sure I see everything that’s on the market?

Why work with a Buyer Specialist?

Answer: Summit Real Estate will show those properties to you. Through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) information is shared about all properties currently available, and as members we can show you any property. This system of cooperation allows us to provide you with information on any property on the market. Let us know if you would like to be a part of our instant notification program where you would be automatically emailed with property information on any new listings matching your buying criteria as soon as they hit the market. While you are driving around, if you see a property that appeals to you, write down the name of the agent, the real estate company and the address of the property. Give Summit Real Estate a call and we’ll provide you with the information you need, and show it to you! Keep in mind that at many of the condominium and townhouse properties you will not see “for sale” signs, as they are not allowed by the covenants. If you are interested in a FSBO (For Sale By Owner) property, we will be happy to contact the owner to get all of the details and to schedule a viewing of the property with you.

& Q & Make cost-effective home improvements A
magine walking into an important job interview looking like you just dragged yourself out of bed. You'd be unlikely to make a good impression and diminish your chance of securing the job. The same goes for selling a home. First impressions are lasting. Some buyers won't even look at the inside of a listing that doesn't have good curb appeal. Today's buyers are picky. There is no sense of urgency in the market, so buyers are holding out for the best home they can find that will work for them for years to come. In some areas, there are a lot of homes for sale. It's important to make sure that buyers will be attracted to your home before they even walk through the front door. Fortunately, exterior improvements needn't be expensive. The recent Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report 2010-2011 found that the improvements that yielded the highest return on the investment when sold were a new steel front door and a new garage door. The average cost nationally for a new front door was $1,218; the

I

return was 102 percent. The average cost for a new garage door was $1,191; the return was 83.9 percent. The top nine of 10 most costeffective improvements nationally were for exterior projects. Curb appeal is as important as ever, and may be more so in this market. The Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report is a collaborative report done annually by Remodeling Magazine and the National Association of Realtors. It compares construction costs with resale values, which are based on estimates from more than 3,000 Realtors and appraisers. Sprucing up the front yard for sale needn't be costly. Clean out weeds and dead plants. Add flowering plants for color and mulch to tidy up areas that aren't heavily planted. Replace a lawn that has seen better days with less lawn and a border bed of flowering shrubs. Do in-ground planting well in advance, if possible, so that plants have a chance to get established before your home goes on the market. Any peeling paint on the front

walk and steps and house exterior and trim should be refreshed. The side of the house that gets the most exposure needs the most maintenance. If you've let it go, you'll be docked dollars by the buyers unless you repaint where needed before you sell. The amount returned on home improvement investments varies from one location to the next. It's important to consult with your local real estate agent before you embark on an upgrade to make sure that you don't overpay on an improvement that won't generate the desired result. Most homeowners assume they'll get their money back and more when they sell. In fact, most upgrade investments often don't return 100 percent of the amount invested, particularly in a down market. A minor mid-range kitchen remodel returns 72.8 percent nationally, according to the 2010-11 Remodeling Cost vs. Value Index. In the Pacific region of the U.S., you're likely to recoup 84.1 percent. However, a major upscale kitchen remodel pays back only 59.7 percent

nationally and 66 percent in the Pacific region. It makes sense to take on a major remodel project only if you're staying in your home and can enjoy the use of the improvements before selling. A deck addition ranked high on the list of popular exterior improvements. Although, nationally the cost recouped is only 72.8 percent, it may be an essential enhancement if your home has no outdoor living space and all the homes for sale in your neighborhood do. Supply and demand in your local area will also impact how much you'll recoup from your fix-up investments. Inman News 2011. For answers to your real estate questions, call Allison at 970-468-6800.

Give Your Dreams To Those Who Can Make Them Real W
Allison Simson Broker/Owner
“I am so grateful to be part of such an amazing and successful business and am thankful everyday for the beauty and wonderful people of Summit County. My husband, Craig, and I love raising our twin daughters, Logan and Mackenna, in the Colorado sunshine. The market will have it’s ups and downs – that’s why it’s called a market – but one thing I know for sure is that a great powder day can make you forget all about Wall Street. See you on the slopes!"

ouldn’t it seem strange if you visited your doctor and found him answering the phone, filing insurance claims and making appointments? Or what if you arrived at the airport and found that the pilot was fueling the plane and checking in bags? Trying to handle all of the aspects of a real estate transaction is similar to playing the game of baseball. When one person attempts to be the pitcher, the outfielder and the first baseman all at the same time, the ball gets dropped. Top professionals, including those in the real estate industry, have learned the value of teamwork, where specialization ensures clients the greatest value and best service possible. That’s why we offer you the Team Advantage.

Joyce Nenninger Consultant
"I am surrounded by truly exceptional people, including Fritz, my loving husband of 45 years, my son Mark and my daughter Julie, and the most enthusiastic and caring Team that I have ever been associated with."

“Spending the past 12 years in Summit County has been absolutely wonderful and I look forward to the next couple of decades here as well! My husband Dan and I are so blessed to be able to raise our two boys, Tanner and Parker, in the beauty and glory of the Colorado mountains. I hope that I can share my love for the mountains with you whether you’re looking for a vacation home or looking to make Summit County your permanent home. It will be my pleasure to help you and your family find the mountain property of your dreams!”

Kristi Warner Client Care Manager
People say “There’s no place like home”… I say, “There’s no place like Summit County!” When my boyfriend Nate and I moved from Kansas to Colorado we truly fell in love with the mountains and surrounding areas. I love that there is a new adventure around every corner (or sometimes mountain). I feel very lucky to have found such a strong team to work with that wants to make Summit County your “no place like home.”

Margaret Bowes Transaction Coordinator
“Even after living in Summit County for 20 years, I can’t get enough of the endless skiing, hiking and camping opportunities our beautiful mountains have to offer. Fortunately my new husband, Richard, and seven year old son, Quinn, share my enthusiasm for the outdoors. I have a great respect for the professionalism and ethics of the Summit Real Estate team, and thoroughly enjoy working with such a wonderful group of people.”
