Come and Apres with me! Dec. 2 from 3-6pm and check out the newly remodeled Manor Vail #370! Just across from Golden Peak! You won’t be disappointed.











What a day, what a day! This is my best opening day ever and anywhere! Blue sky, sunshine, wrapped it up on Pepi’s deck with the sun blazing down on me! And my hip works wonderfully! I can ski again!!  Thank you Dr. Marc Philippon and Mike Wahoff and team!


Blue Sky in Vail

Headed up to ski the opening day in Vail!! This is the most beautiful blue sky opening day I have ever skied. I am anxious to get up on the mountain to test the snow conditions but I am even more anxious to test out my hip that Dr. Philippon repaired in March! It is a good thing he is in my own back yard. He is a fabulous surgeon. Cheers to a fantastic ski season!!

Vail resort will open with Chairs 2,3,4,8,15,16 and Liondshead Eagle Bahn Gondola. Recent storms have been a huge help in the snowmaking and grooming process.

The National Weather Service predicts an early powder season!!!! If you haven’t already done so book your reservations for this ski season! We are about to have a great start to our season!!

For the first time in two years Eagle County has surpassed the $1 billion mark bringing the total to $1.1 billion over 926 transactions through September.
September’s dollar volume of $235 million is the 2nd highest volume month in three years (since September of 2007). This large volume month is the result of 2 large sales:
The Ritz Carlton had 45 units in Lionshead that sold for $110,890,000
Stratton Flats in Gypsum sold for $18,000,000
Without these two large-volume sales we would have remained consistent with the previous months of 2010 with $106,805,303 in dollar volume, which is up 6% over September 2009.
Through the 3rd quarter of 2010, new developments have seen quite a bit of activity. The following graph shows the gross sales for each project thus far through 2010, which in total, accounts for 27% of the year to date volume.

Notable Statistics:

  • Eagle County has had 66 bank sales so far through 2010
  • Two Strawberry Park homes sold; the highest priced was $7.8 million
  • Of all properties sold, 40% are for less than $500,000


Opening day is 1 week from today 11/19/10!!! Get your gear and get your pass and prepare for the best ski season ever!

While you are here you may want to consider touring one of the finest condos in Vail which is just steps from Golden Peak! Manor Vail Unit 370 is newly remodeled  and a great place to kick back after a hard day of skiing! $885,000

With 1,378 active residential listings on the market, this is the lowest number of listings in the Vail MLS since February of 2008.  While this is a typical seasonal adjustment, it is worth noting that there has been some supply contraction in the last few months. Today there are 1,378 active listings to 167 properties under contract – for a spread of 1,211.  At this time in 2009 there was a spread of 1,358, in 2008 1,235 and in 2007, 572.  While we are far from 2007 numbers (which we know), it is good to see that the spread from listings to contracts is getting smaller and approaching 2008 levels.

Today’s numbers show that the average sale to original list price is 83% and the average sale to final list price is 88%  Additionally, the average days on market for all sold property in the MLS is 380 days.
