This week’s Property of the Week is located in Steamboat Springs by Cheryl Foote. Incredible Location, Newly Refinished Amazing location just a few blocks from the ski resort and steps from the free city bus-route with a convenient stop 1/2 block from the house. World class powder is literally minutes from your door!

Location-Neutral Workers Impact on Steamboat Springs Economy

Location-Neutral Workers Impact on Steamboat Springs Economy

In just about any Colorado mountain town you’ll hear “location-neutral” as the primary buzzword when it comes to employment and workforce. It seems that more and more people are leaving the bright lights of the big city in favor of the lifestyle that comes with living in the Rockies. In Steamboat Springs, the portion of the local workforce that could choose to work from anywhere and has decided to call Steamboat home accounts for over 10% of labor. Yampa Valley Data Partners, an independent research group, reports that approximately 1,600 workers hold jobs considered location-neutral. This population contributes nearly $54 million annual income which is more than the aggregate payroll of our entire hospitality sector. Some of the business-minded folks you’ll find in this category work professions including graphic and website design, financial and investment advisors, software tech, sales and freelance writers. These people influence and network with others living well outside of our county’s borders but choose Steamboat as their base of operations. This makes a strong argument…

Well look at you.  Ready to plunk down your investment and move from paying somebody else’s mortgage to covering your own?

Here are some key considerations and suggestions, from Steamboat Springs Realtor Cheryl Foote, to factor in when transitioning to home ownership.   Upfront Costs: Prepare Yourself You’ll recall how hard it may have seemed to scrape together a few nickels to throw down first month’s, last month’s and security deposit, right?  Well, get good and ready to write an even bigger check when you finally close on your own place.   Before you sign on the dotted line and grab those front door keys, most lenders will require a down payment on your mortgage.

The Hearth Makes A Home Warm -Stoves & Fireplaces

The Hearth Makes A Home Warm -Stoves & Fireplaces

Staying warm is key during our long mountain town winters. Keeping your house warm, especially if it is older can be challenging. Fireplaces and Stoves can help add warmth and ambiance as well as assist in beating those high heating bills. Choosing what is right for your home is subject to many variables including town and county codes, access to gas, construction costs and more. Here is a little more information on Wood Stoves, Pellet Stoves and Gas Stoves for your consideration. Wood Burning Fireplaces A wood-burning fireplace is a staple in many homes. As one of the oldest methods for heating a home, wood burning fireplaces have advanced dramatically over the years. Masonry fireplaces are built brick by brick or block by block by a mason at the time a home is constructed. These fireplaces are expensive to build and maintain but are meant to last.  Today, wood-burning fireplaces can take on any look you desire.

Home Buying Tips to call your favorite mountain town “Home”

Home Buying Tips to call your favorite mountain town “Home”

“Home”, It can refer to the structure where you live, the feeling of settling in after a long day’s work or play, or the sense of community you feel in the town where you reside. It can mean all these things and more. As a REALTORⓇ, I sell homes.  But what am I really selling?  A foundation, ‘x’ beds/baths, maybe some land, space to cook meals, a place to sleep at night? Sure, but that is not the most important thing that we as REALTORS do. Much more than selling someone a piece of property, we connect people with the right property that evokes for them their true feeling of what “Home” means to them. How do I define my home? My home is the mountains that surround me in every direction. They orient me, provide me with terrain in winter that holds snow I can ski and snowshoe on, and trails in summer that I can hike and bike on. Mountains provide me with a sense of protection,…
