By diana
Aug 21, 2014

Park City Mountain Resort created a new website and PR campaign to petition others to help keep the Resort open for the upcoming winter season.  They took a huge ad out in the Park City Record saying they are prepared to make an immediate rent payment to Vail in excess of fair rental value to use the upper ski terrain for the coming season.  In exchange they want Vail to stay the eviction through the next ski season.

Park City Mountain Resort also created a website: http://keepparkcityopen.com/  encouraging the local community and visitors to go there to support their desire to keep Park City open.

Deer Valley Specialist Real Estate Tip Of The Week: Investing In Real Estate

By Delia Reece
Aug 18, 2014

deer valley bathroomAs we all have witnessed over the past decade, the real estate industry is very cyclical.  What goes up, at some point will go down, and vice-versa. A downturn can motivate some experienced investors to take advantage of a golden opportunity and acquire property at a good price, with hopes of making a profit in the future. The potential for income and tax savings can also make investment property attractive.

Whether it’s commercial property, a Park City or Deer Valley primary residence , 2nd home or rental; if you are thinking of investing in real estate, it’s important to get professional advice before you buy.

Working with a Park City REALTOR® who specializes in investment properties can simplify the process tremendously. Your REALTOR® knows all the issues that are involved and can go over your investment goals with you to help you select a property that best meets your needs. Your REALTOR® can’t predict how much a particular property will appreciate, but can show you the direction of trends in your market area.

For rock solid advice on buying or selling real estate, call Craig Reece at 435-647-8017.  Craig has been a full time Park City resident since 1973 and a full time Park City real estate agent since 1978.

This week our Park City real estate best buy of the week is a updated home located in the coveted Sun Peak area and Cedar Draw subdivision.  Sun Peak offers  amazing amenities including:  a pool, tennis, clubhouse, and trails.  It is also very close to the Canyons ski resort and the shops and restaurants of the Newpark/Redstone area.

This 6 bedroom 4 bath home sits on .30 acres and is just over 4400 square feet.  What really sets it apart is the large wrap around deck off the main level that perfectly showcases the views of all three ski resorts and is the perfect place for outdoor relaxing and entertaining.  The open main level has large vaulted ceilings that goes into the beautifully remodeled kitchen.  The large master suite has great views and a recently remodeled master bath.  There is also a lower level family room and additional walk out with a covered patio.

Deer Valley Specialist Real Estate Tip Of The Week: Home Generators: How Do You Choose?

By Delia Reece
Aug 04, 2014

park city home safetyWith weather getting wilder around the country, homeowners are taking steps to protect their homes and keep them running during stormy seasons. Home generators are a great solution against power outages.

When shopping for a generator, you will need to decide between one that runs on gasoline or propane. Propane generators tend to cost more to buy and set up because they have larger engines and more complicated storage systems. Also, depending on local fuel prices, propane tends to be a little more expensive to use than gas.

However, propane is a cleaner fuel - it emits 80% less carbon monoxide than gasoline. Not only is it better for the environment, cleaner fuel means that the engine lasts longer and it will start up more easily in the cold weather. Propane can be stored safely for an unlimited period of time because it doesn’t deteriorate like gasoline.

Before you decide between propane and gasoline, it’s wise to thoroughly research all the options that are available today. Fortunately here in Park City we have not had to deal with these types of emergencies. However; it is always good to repaired.

For rock solid advice on buying or selling real estate, call Craig Reece at 435-647-8017.  Craig has been a full time Park City resident since 1973 and a full time Park City real estate agent since 1978.
