The vacation home blog

Real Estate Agent - Coldwell Banker Colorado Rockies Real Estate
The Colorado mountains, real estate, ski resorts, lifestyle and vacation homes is my focus. I am a resource for people who want to know more about buying, selling and renting their vacation homes in all of Summit County; Breckenridge, Frisco, Copper Mountain, Keystone, Dillon and Silverthorne.
It may be redundant, but vacation homes are not always in resort communities, and in fact, are often very different.  So I thought it would be worth a try.  I am recruiting members for our group, so please sign up if you would like to share ideas, tips and tricks, rent by owner websites, and lots...
Our market is hot!  Almost everyone on AR these days writes about what to do in slow markets.  Well, I was doing those things about three years ago when the rest of you were so busy you didn't have time to spend all the money you were making!  Today the tables are turned and my vacation home mark...

Have you ever asked one of your clients if they have thought about buying a second home?  Not just a rental property, but a vacation home at the beach or mountains.  If your clients are baby boomers and they live in a nice house, chances are they already have a second home or they have thought ab...
I own a condo at Copper Mountain, Colorado.  It is just a little one bedroom condo and I try to rent the heck out of it.  It is about 8 miles from my primary home, so I don't use it myself.  I have four major ski areas within 20 minutes of my house so there is really no need to stay there.  I do ...
My other blog is my main blog, where I post several times a week.  There I write about everything to do with Summit County real estate.   I live in the mountains of Colorado, surrounded by ski resorts in the winter and wildflowers in the summer.  Oh yeah, and a few tourists here and there.  My ni...
