February 2011 Real Estate Newsletter

We’ve all been enjoying a very mild winter so far this year. Well, perhaps I shouldn’t say “all,” because the skiers are starting to wish for some more powder! We are very lucky to still have the mountain snowpack at 107% of average. We stocked up early in the year with some December storms which […]

A Word About Repos

A lot of people are getting some great deals on bank repos, and I want to say a quick word to those of you who think you may interested in purchasing one. If you will need a loan to make your purchase, you need to get a pre-qualification letter from a bank. If you’re going […]

This is the second consecutive month in which we’ve trailed last year. One […]

October 2010 Newsletter

Indian Summer is upon us. This has been the nicest September I can remember since I moved to Pagosa Springs in 1983. Hopefully, we will see the weather pattern change as we approach the second half of October. A little bit of cooler weather will make the hunters happy, and a few snowflakes will get […]

September 2010 Newsletter

The weather over Labor Day Weekend was spectacular. As we head into the Colorfest Balloon Rally next weekend, it is expected to continue. The weatherman is predicting 70 degrees and sunny all week. Soon we’ll be sliding into Fall, perhaps the most beautiful season in Pagosa (though it’s hard to pick just one!) The Aspens […]
