A Fantastic End to the Summer!

With a number of special events to end the summer season, the past few weeks have been very exciting.  The USA Pro Cycling Challenge, combined with the last Free Summer Concert and All Arts Festival, brought an unbelievable 20,000 people to town.  The first leg of the Cycling event could not have gone any better, with Colorado's own Taylor Phinney, who could have had a career-ending injury a year ago in the same event, was first to cross the finish line on Lincoln Avenue to the cheers of the Steamboat crowd.
Comparing Steamboat to Other Resort Markets
In last month's newsletter we looked at how the first half of 2015 compared to 2014.  This month we're taking a peek at how Steamboat is comparing to other Rocky Mountain resort markets.  Some resorts are faring better than others.  To find out who is up and who is down, Click Here.

Storm Meadows Penthouse  
Begin your mornings in this Storm Meadows Penthouse condominium studying the conditions on the Steamboat slopes, then properly suiting the family for a day of skiing and riding. Take the elevator to your private, slopeside locker, grab your equipment, then be one of the first to hit the slopes. Enjoy a lunch rendezvous back at the condo and even a change of clothes to better fit the conditions, hit the slopes for another round of fun, then end the afternoon with a relaxing hot tub, and the evening with a stroll to the base area restaurants for happy hour and gourmet cuisine. Located in the top, sunny southwest corner of Storm Meadows 300, this beautiful, two story, three bedroom and two bath condominium is perfect for the active family. From the moment one enters this condominium, the spaciousness of this home is recognized, with a private entryway separate from the living space that includes a bench to peel off the day's ski attire as well as a closet to keep it put away.  Adding to the spacious feel is the living area with its cathedral ceilings and wall of windows with commanding views of the slopes, ski village and Flattop and Emerald Mountains. Also visually pleasing is the recently remodeled kitchen that features stainless steel LG appliances, leathered granite counters and pecan-colored kitchen cabinetry. The living and dining areas, as well as bedrooms and baths have either new carpet or ceramic tile. The main living level has one bedroom and full bath and the second level offers the master bedroom with king bed, guest bedroom with bunk beds and shared, full bath. Being that this property is an excellent rental, there are plenty of closets to store personal items when it is being offered to others. This penthouse is being sold completely turn-key for the new owners to enjoy for years. Offered at $549,000

If you are a buyer, September and October are great times to purchase Steamboat property!  These two months are the end of our selling season and sellers may be more flexible in their prices because they may not want to carry the property until things begin to pick back up in the spring...and you'll still have time to put your personal touches in the property before ski season begins.

Oh, and please don't forget to...
