The Best Things About Empire Pass Real Estate At Deer Valley

By Scott Maizlish
Apr 17, 2014

Deer Valley Real EstateEmpire Pass is a paradise for Deer Valley Resort® skiers. Real estate in this slope-side Park City community is spread out over 3500 gorgeous acres, with 90% of it protected from further development as open space.

All of this open space is only 39 miles from the Salt Lake City International Airport, making for extremely easy year-round access.

The true ski-in / ski-out homes in Empire Pass are arguably the most desirable in Park City. This is due to the unique combination of mountain living, resort access, airport accessibility, and amenities that you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in the world.

Here are the best things about Empire Pass.

Skiing & Recreation Skiing Deer Valley

In the winter, Empire Pass gives you direct access to some of the best north-facing ski terrain at Deer Valley. Some of my favorite lifts are right here. Mayflower, Flagstaff, and Northside chairs all carry you to protected snow, days after storms have passed. If you’re wondering, north-facing slopes get less sun and hold snow longer because of it.

When the snow melts, you’ll find yourself in a playground for mountain bikers, trail runners, hikers, and anyone who loves being in the mountains. Well-maintained singletrack trails crisscross the surrounding mountains and you’re just a few minutes away from the Wasatch epic Mid-Mountain Trail. This is the middle of the only Gold-Level, International Mountain Biking Association ride center in the world.

If you want more, the Guardsman's Pass road will quickly take you down into neighboring Big Cottonwood canyon for more hiking and legendary rock climbing.

Historic Main Street Access Park City Main Street

One minute, you’re tucked away in the mountains and the next you easily find yourself in the heart of Park City. Historic Main Street and all of its restaurants, shops and activity are a short drive or shuttle ride away from Empire Pass.

Whether you want a gourmet meal at Talisker on Main, Riverhorse, Grappa, or one of the many other fine restaurants, or a delicious burger and some local craft beers at No Name, Main Street has what you crave. There is always live music somewhere during the winter and experiencing Sundance is a must, especially when you can escape back to your home with ease.

In the summer, Main Street is even better. Enjoying a meal outside on one of the many rooftops or patios with views of the mountains and no crowds is a true luxury.

Montage Deer Valley® Montage Deer Valley

Deer Valley’s Montage 5-Star resort is just down the road and you have access to their world-class spa, fitness center, indoor lap pool and yoga classes. Another gem at the Montage is Daly’s Pub & Rec. Daly’s is a gourmet pub that has entertainment for the whole family. Bowling lanes, billiards, video games, shuffleboard and plenty of flat-screen TVs to watch the big game ensure good times for everyone.

The Spa Montage provides classical spa therapies along with new and therapeutic approaches to make your ski season more rewarding. This transformative space offers everything from  a full-body stone massage to recover from days on the slopes and a 90-minute altitude therapy to stimulate respiration and relax.

The Montage even offers a children’s program for ages 5-12 that takes them on activities like snowshoeing adventures and mountainside scavenger hunts.

Talisker Club Talisker Tower

Empire Pass is a Talisker Community and homeownership in the Tower Residence, Silver Strike Lodge, Larkspur Westside, Paintbrush, Arrowleaf, Christopher Homes, Nakoma or Flagstaff comes with the extraordinary amenities of the Talisker Club. The ski-in / ski-out Talisker Tower, access to the championship golf course at Tuhaye, Talisker Club’s exceptional cuisine,  a year-round pool and fitness center, and access to the Canyons Club at Canyons Resort are all a part of the deal.

The easiest to access from Empire Pass is the Talisker Tower. It sits at the center of the community and provides Talisker Club members with a cozy place for breakfast, lunch, and après ski entertainment. It’s at the bottom of the Silver Strike Express Lift so you can ski in and ski out, starting your day at the Tower with a continental breakfast or stopping by in the middle of the day to warm up.

Empire Pass Homes Empire Pass Home Deer Valley

The homes in this community are striking. From this 3-bedroom, 2195 square foot condo at the Montage to this 5-bedroom, 5,538 square foot trailside home with ski prep room right at the base of the Northside Express chairlift, there are options to meet your needs.

Demand in the Deer Valley Resort® real estate market is really high right now, and Empire Pass is one of the most desirable communities.  New homes are under construction and the best single family homes and condominiums are going quickly.

The Park City real estate market is booming right now and is continuing to grow in popularity as investors move more of their money to real estate in 2014. If you’re interested an Empire Pass home, give me (Scott) a call at 435.901.4309 or email me at maizlish@gmail.com and find out more before prices rise with the increasing demand.

I’m also happy to answer any questions you have about other Deer Valley Resort® communities and homes. You deserve the best home

 

9 Exciting Park City Real Estate Trends You Need to Know in 2014

By Scott Maizlish
Apr 09, 2014

Park city real estate trends Our real estate market is exciting right now. Median home prices are up, more people are going under contract, and cash sales are high. All the market indicators are extremely healthy and stats from 2013 show continuing upward trends since the low point of the Great Recession in 2009.

Rick Klein, a local expert on market statistics has been tracking these positive signals since 2007. If 2014 is anything like last year, we’ll continue to see these trends improve throughout the year.

The only challenge this year is going to be supply, but if you know about these other trends and keep that in mind, you can navigate the landscape effectively.

Younger Buyers are in Town

The tech market is booming right now and younger professionals from places like Silicon Valley, New York, and Texas are buying homes in Park City. Log cabins and lodges are out—contemporary architecture and design are in. Demand for these homes is high and inventory is low. If you want to sell your rustic home to this crowd, it’s going to need some updating.

Median Home Prices are Up

In 2013, the 12-month median home price in Park City was up 7% over 2012 and 11.4% above 2011.

That price is back above $500,000 and with demand high in the market, it’s sure to continue gaining value at a healthy rate.

Pending Sales

Lots of people are buying homes in Park City and the number of homes under contract reflects that. The number of pending sales (under contract) shows 41% growth since 2011 and up 21% over 2012.

More homes are going under contract than in 2007 and only slightly less than the number in 2006.

Closed Sales Are Up

More homes are going under contract, but that doesn’t mean anything if the deals aren’t closing. In this market, we’re seeing more deals close than we have in the last five years. Closed sales are up 17.6% above 2012 and 31.7% above 2011.

Buyers are serious. There are more of them going under contract and they’re closing. This is great news for everyone.

Cash Sales Are Up

Cash sales are adding to the number of closed deals going up. Without the uncertainty of bank financing to prevent the closing of a contract, more deals are going through.  48% of the total sales in 2013 were cash sales.

People are investing more of their own money in real estate than they were before the recession. Cash sales were just 26% of total sales in 2007, compared to 48% percent today.

Distressed Homes Sales are Low

All that cash isn’t being spent on bank-owned properties either. Short sales and foreclosures continue to drop, making up only 3.4% of sales in December 2013, down sharply from 13% in 2012.

They’re also selling at prices only 2% below market value so they’re not doing much damage.

Active Listings are at Historic Lows

Homes aren’t sitting on the market, they’re selling fast. The number of active listings is at a record low, even lower than it was in early 2007. There were only 1113 active listings on January 1st, 2014.

There were just under 1500 active listings in January of 2007. This indicates that homes are selling, but it’s also indicative of a lower inventory of homes for sale.

Limited Inventory

Because the market has been doing so well, the number of homes available for sale continues to go down. This has been driving buyers to get under contract faster and has made for quick sales.

Developers are working to catch up to the demand with building permits up 150% year-over-year in 2013. Lots are selling and construction is rising. Luckily, there will be more homes on the market to meet the needs of new buyers sooner than later.

Main Challenge in 2014

With an influx of buyers, healthy prices, pending sales and closed sales up, the main challenge this year is low inventory. Buyers, sellers, and realtors are going to have to act fast in this market to get the deals they want.

Anyone considering selling a home should make sure they know the necessary steps to selling your home fast.

If you want to go deeper into the numbers or have a questions, give me (Scott) a call at 435.901.4309 or email me at maizlish@gmail.com. I’d be happy to answer any questions you have about this year’s exciting market.

6 Steps to Selling Your Park City Home in 24 Hours

By Scott Maizlish
Mar 28, 2014

Park City Home Sale

Last week, my clients put their Park City home on the market and had it under contract in under 24 hours.

Their 4-bedroom, single-level home on a flat lot in Park Meadows had showings before it officially hit the market. It was virtually brand new inside and out after being mostly rebuilt a few years ago. Perfect for a family or couple with frequent guests, it wasn’t going to last long.

The style of this home and it’s condition had a lot to do with the quick sale, but these sellers also did all of the right things to close the deal so fast.

Here are the steps they took. Every seller should do the same to sell their home as quickly as possible.

1. Fix Everything The smallest broken thing could inject doubt into the deal and delay it substantially. Fix anything you know is broken beforehand, even if it seems trivial. This is a general best practice as you go for owning a home, but it’s essential before selling one.

2. Deep Clean Your Home Someone will have to clean the house from top to bottom. You can either do it yourself or hire a local professional cleaner for the job. A professional will be able to do it thoroughly and efficiently. It’s well worth the cost. Call the Seth Kubichek at Elite Cleaning Service in Park City at 435-659-5724 to get the job done right.

3. Get a Home Inspection Even if you’ve always been on top of repairs and kept your home in immaculate shape, you should do an inspection before you show your home to a buyer. This way, if there is anything you missed, you’ll know about it and have the chance to fix it before the buyer does their due diligence. It also instills confidence in the buyer when you already know all the details.  Matt Stouffer with Red Stone Inspections in Park City is extremely reliable, efficient, and does a great job. 435-640-7308.

4. Find an Experienced Realtor It helps to have someone who’s been through this many times before. Knowing how to price your home right is their job. They have expert knowledge of the current market and they’ll get you the best deal possible. They’ll guide you through the process of the sale and alert you of any important things you may not have considered.

Realtors are already plugged into a network of potential buyers and quickly get the word out to all the other real estate agents in town, creating a larger net. They’re already engaging potential buyers through marketing on social media and can potentially find you buyers as fast as they can share your home’s details.

5. Accomodate Quick Showings The faster you show the home, the sooner you can get under contract. With an experienced realtor and the speed of the internet on your side, you could be scheduling a showing the same day you list your home. Make sure your schedule is ready to fit in showings right away. The sellers of this home were extremely accommodating and that was one of the main reasons we locked down the sale so quickly.

6. Be Ready To Part With Your Home Homes have a lot of memories attached to them and can understandably be hard to let go of. This isn’t a problem for many people, but some are caught off guard once a deal is set in motion. Check in with yourself beforehand and make peace with selling your home.

Not every home will sell in 24 hours, but you can take all the necessary steps to make it possible and greatly speed up the process.

If you’re interested in selling your home quickly or have any questions about how to do it, give me (Scott) a call at 435.901.4309 or email me at maizlish@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to help.

 

Park City Escapes: Arches National Park, Moab

By Scott Maizlish
Mar 20, 2014

Double-O-Arch_Arches_National_Park_2-w550

Park City is within easy reach of 5 National Parks and Arches is one of the most amazing. Only a 4-hour drive from Park City, or a 1-hour flight from Salt Lake City International to Moab’s regional airport. The park is located just outside the town of Moab and you won’t even have to rough it (unless you want to). It’s a great escape for a whole family or for a couple.

 Luxury accommodations that rival some of our resorts are hidden along the majestic Colorado. You can easily spend 3 days driving through Arches, hiking, and enjoying the pool at the hotel. One of my favorites even has a full-blown spa. The national park is open year-round, 24 hours a day, but the best times to go are just after ski season(April-May) and early fall (September-October).

Those happen to be the best times to get out of Park City, too.

Here’s some helpful info on the town of Moab, my favorite places to stay, and details on actual hikes and natural wonders inside of Arches National Park.

 Moab 9101881374_f86199f090_h-w550

Moab is world famous for its mountain biking, four wheel offroading (trucks, atvs, etc.), rafting, camping, rock climbing, photography opportunities and hiking. The surrounding southwestern desert is breathtaking. Red rock vistas embrace the powerful colorado river and the area is teeming with unique life.

 It’s also a brilliant town filled with fine art galleries and unique dining experiences, like the Desert Bistro (they fly in fresh seafood from Hawaii and Florida). With something to do to make everyone happy, Moab is the perfect balance to the outdoor adventures which surround it.

 Where to Stay

Sorrel-River-Resort-Delux-Suite-w550

You’re in the desert but Moab is an international destination and there are plenty of comfortable options. You’ll easily find Wi-Fi access and all the amenities you need. Some resorts rival those in Park City with their amenities. If you are looking for a resort type experience, these are two of my favorite places to stay, both within 20 minutes of Arches National Park.

Sorrel River Resort & Spa: This relaxing escape was given 4 stars by Forbes Travel Guide in 2013 and won’t disappoint. Rooms, suites, and even a 2,000 square-foot private luxury home are available. Spread across 160 acres, the Sorrel River Ranch has a full-service spa, fine dining overlooking the Colorado River, tennis and basketball courts, and a pool for the kids.

 Red Cliffs Lodge:  A gorgeous 20-minute drive from town and Arches, Red Cliffs Lodge is nestled on the banks of the Colorado River. Choose from rooms and private riverside cabins (I highly recommend the cabins). The award-winning Castle Creek Winery is here and a gourmet western dining experience will be waiting for you after a long day of playing outside. Tennis, a pool, and majestic red rock vistas are all a part of the experience.

 Arches National Park Landscape_Arch_Arches_NP251-w550

You could easily spend a few days exploring this national park. Arches is home to over 2000 natural sandstone arches, and full of other-worldly sights you can see from the car, experience with a quick pull off the road, or immerse yourself in with day-long hikes. You’ll enter the park in your vehicle and pay a small fee ($10 per vehicle) that’s good for 7 days. The park ranger will give you a map, and you’re off.

Remember to bring plenty of water with you, even if you don’t plan on hiking much. The desert environment is very dry and staying hydrated will help you enjoy your trip.  Bring hydration packs if you plan on hiking at all, you’ll need 2-3 liters of water with you and some in the car to refill. They’re also great for carrying sunscreen, lunch, cameras, and anything else you might need for the day.

Read and follow all of the posted signs and ask park rangers if you have any questions. Even though you’re in a national park, it’s still wild country.

 Just Off The Road Balanced_Rock_at_Arches_National_Park-w550

There are many pull-offs and viewpoints along the main road and all of them are worth stopping for if they look interesting. Here are my favorite spots.

Balanced Rock: This mind-boggling feature is pictured above. The rock is balanced on eroding layers of sandstone and standing beneath it is a powerful experience. You’ll spot it from the road and it’s a must-see from out of the car.

 The Windows Section: This section of the park is filled with arches, including the breathtaking Double Arch. The parking area makes a roundabout through this section and many arches can be seen from the road, but you should walk a little bit and get up close to them. This is my favorite area to stop for lunch.

 Fiery Furnace Viewpoint: This quick viewpoint on the way to Devil’s Garden is normally void of other people and overlooks amazing red rock fins. Read the signs and don’t venture down into the Fiery Furnace area. It’s an easy place to get lost in a serious way.

Short Hikes 7993185756_1712909e7d_o-w550

All of these hikes can be done in an hour or less and are great opportunities to get up close to some breathtaking arches.

 The Windows: 1 Mile Round Trip. This is a fun and easy hike that starts in the Windows parking area. It’ll take you an hour or less, depending on how fast you go.

 Sand Dune Arch:  Less than half a mile, .4 miles round trip. This sandy hike starts in the Sand Dune Arch parking area and takes 30 minutes to reach this secluded arch.

Landscape Arch: 1.6 miles round trip. Relatively flat, this trail is easy to hike and leads to one of the most gorgeous arches in the park. It’s also the largest arch in the park, spanning 306 feet long. It’ll take you an hour or less depending on your pace.

There are two longer hikes in the park that require a commitment, lots of water, and sunscreen, but they’re worth it.

Long Hikes Delicate_arch_sunset-w550

 Delicate Arch: This is the arch pictured on Utah licenses plates and all over ads about tourism in the state. It’s a 3-mile round trip hike and it is a strenuous one that can take 2-3 hours(or more). There is no shade. Bring plenty of water and pack a lunch to eat at the top. Just before you get to the arch, the trail goes along a rock ledge for about 200 yards. This section is easily passable, but you’ll have to keep the little ones close on this adventure.

Devil’s Garden: This is the longest of the maintained trails in the park. It’s a 7.2-mile round trip that takes you past 8 arches.  There are narrow ledges and rocky surfaces. It’s not recommended when wet or snowy. Not for the faint of heart, but perfect for an adventurous family with older children or a couple. A trail guide is available at the trailhead.

Arches National Park is just one of the many places to explore around Moab. It’s also one of the best. Make sure you book your lodging before you leave because town can fill up quickly, especially when there are events in Moab.

If you have any questions about the area, other places to stay, or other activities give me (Scott) a call at 435.901.4309 or email me at maizlish@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to point you in the right direction.

What ski town is best? Park City, UT vs. Vail, CO

By Scott Maizlish
Mar 12, 2014

Park City vs. Vail is a classic ski town showdown because both towns have stellar reputations, resorts, and amenities. It’s extra relevant with Vail Resorts now in both towns. You’re going to have to choose one and I want to help you make the best choice.

A weeklong ski vacation can easily cost $10,000 for a family of four.  You might as well get the most out of your investment and choose the best ski town you can find. It’s even more important to know more about a ski town if you’re looking at purchasing a home.

Whether you’re planning a vacation or looking into buying a new home, these are the most important factors to consider when deciding between Park City and Vail.

Airport Access Salt Lake City Airport

Both towns have reasonable access to International Airports, but convenience wins. Easy access to travel is vital whether you’re flying in for a vacation or planning on living in one of these towns.

Vail: Denver International Airport is 120 miles from Vail, Colorado and just over a 2-hour drive on I-70 without any traffic. If your flight conflicts with the crowd returning to Denver after a day of skiing, it could be a much longer drive.

Eagle County Regional Airport is 36 miles from Vail and a 40-minute drive, but there aren’t nearly as many flights available. It does provide some direct flights across the country, but they’ll be tough to snag.

Park City: Salt Lake City International Airport is 35 miles from Park City and a 35-minute drive. Traffic from ski resorts won’t interfere on the interstate, though you could get jammed up in the center of Park City during the busy season if you’re not careful.

Convenient flight options and destinations all over the world are a short drive away. You could easily be on the mountain less than an hour after leaving the airport.

Winner: Park City. The SLC International Airport is just too easy to reach. Shut downs and delays also tend to be more common in Denver.

Snow Park City Powder Skiing

Park City and Vail are both tucked away at high elevations and get lots of snow compared to the rest of the country. Vail sits at 8,022 ft. above sea level and Park City at 7,000 ft. above sea level.  Park City winters are also a little milder in temperature thanks to that 1,000 feet in elevation Let’s look at the two Vail-owned resorts for comparison.

Vail: Vail Resort gets 348 inches of annual snowfall to cover it’s groomed skiing and fill in the famous back bowls. Powder here tends to be more dense than in Utah.

Park City: Canyons Ski Resort, Vail’s counterpart on the Epic Pass gets 355 inches of annual snowfall. Utah is famous for the champagne consistency of its powder.

Winner: Park City.  While the difference in inches may be negligible, the difference in the quality of the snow is not.

Resort Access Vail Traffic

Both towns are close to three world-class resorts, and not far from many others. The skiable acres and quite comparable, but ease of access and snowfall at the resorts less than an hour away tip the scales.

Vail: Vail Resort itself is easy to access from the center town and has 5,289 skiable acres with 348 inches of annual snowfall. Beaver Creek is 19 minutes down I-70 and has 1,832 skiable acres and 325 inches of annual snowfall. Copper Mountain, the next closest resort is 26 miles away, features 2,465 skiable acres and 310 inches of annual snowfall.

Breckenridge, A-Basin, and Keystone are within an hour’s drive down I-70 without traffic and Aspen and Snowmass are almost 2 hours away. All amazing resorts in their own right, the highest annual snowfall is a respectable 370 inches at Breckenridge.

Park City: Park City Mountain Resort 3,300 skiable acres and 365 inches of annual snowfall are accessed from a lift rising from the middle of town’s historic Main Street. Deer Valley, one of the last skier-only mountains in the country and it’s 2,026 acres of skiable terrain are only a 4-minute drive, or 12-minute free bus ride from Park City’s Main Street. Canyons Resort provides access to 4,000 skiable acres and 355 inches of annual snowfall and is only an 8-minute drive or 25-minute free bus ride away.

Alta, Snowbird, Brighton, and Solitude resorts are all within an hour of Park City. The hallowed Cottonwood Canyon resorts average upwards of 500 inches in annual snowfall and feature every kind of terrain imaginable. Over 500 inches a year, every year. Snowbasin and Powder Mountain, are two other amazing resorts that are just over an hour away from Park City.

Winner: Park City. Sorry, Vail. But, the three Park City resorts are easier to access and a free bus system touches them all. Also, until you’ve been chest deep at one of the Cottonwood Canyon resorts, you just don’t know how good skiing can get.

Lift Tickets and Lines Breck Lift Line

Both towns get busy with three world-class ski resorts and international airports nearby but there is definitely a difference in the lines at resorts. Also, having an Epic Pass in Vail will get you access to Vail and Beaver Creek, but unless you have one, it’ll cost more for you and your family to ski every day than it would in Park City.

Vail:  Vail and Beaver Creek both cost $119 for a full-day lift ticket, if you buy it in advance. $139 if you buy tickets at the window. Your Epic Pass will get you into both resorts and this is a perk Park City doesn’t have. Copper Mountain isn’t any better, at $118 a day, and your Epic Pass won’t work here.

The State’s growing population of 5.188 million and it’s popularity make for some of the most outrageous lift lines imaginable. Did you see the pictures from Vail Resort this winter?

Park City: Park City’s most expensive full-day lift ticket is $108 at Deer Valley, at full-price. PCMR Your Epic Pass will pay for itself at Canyons if you ski 7 days, with their full-price day passes listed at $107.

Utah’s population of 2.855 million is also growing and it’s a popular destination, but the resorts are much less crowded. True, there can be big lift lines on holidays and weekends in the peak of the season, but they’re not that bad.

Winner: Park City. The Epic Pass may pack more punch in Colorado, but it’ll only save you money if you’re skiing at least 7 days a year and waiting in line you can see from space is a huge downer.

Recreational Marijuana Welcome-to-Colorado-Marijuana-Green-Rush-750x471-w550

Only one town has it, and there are varying opinions on whether it’s a good thing or not. Some people love the idea, some hate it. We’ll leave this one up to you.

Vail: Recreational marijuana was legalized in Colorado in 2014.

Park City: The Utah Legislature is likely to never allow it.

Winner:  You decide.  

 

Mountain Biking 4744003781_60a65e8086_o-w550

Both towns are amazing destinations in the summer and cross-country and downhill mountain biking are popular in both.

Vail: Vail offers some of the best cross-country and downhill trails in the country. Vail Resort has hosted two Mountain Bike World Championships and offers trails for mountain bikers of all experience levels.

Park City:  With over 400 miles of well-maintained single-track, multiple bike parks, and world-class downhill courses, Park City is the highest-rated mountain biking community in the world. Its IMBA Gold-level rating takes into account its luxurious resorts and restaurants, but those are simply the icing.

Park City’s Trails are maintained by Synderville Basin Recreation and the Non-profit Mountain Trails Foundation.

Winner: Park City. It’s the only IMBA Gold-level destination IN THE WORLD for a reason.

Real Estate Prices

park city real estate

If you’re looking to purchase a ski home or a live in a mountain community year-round, the real estate market is probably the most important piece of the puzzle.

Vail: The average price for a home in Vail was $811,386 in 2013, down 15% year-over-year. Total volume sold was down 19% year-over-year, along with the number of units sold which was down 6%. There was a spike in the number of active listings, up 50% year-over-year.

Park City: The average price for a home in Park City was $690,978 in 2013, which is flat at 0% year-over-year. Total volume sold was up 22% year-over-year along with the number of units sold which was also up 22%. The number of active listings was flat at 0% year-over-year.

Winner: Park City. Prices are lower than Vail and real estate is in high demand. There aren’t as many listings, and it’s a healthier market for buyers and sellers. Having congested interstate I-70 run through the center of Vail is also unpleasant.

Whether you’re visiting or buying a home here, you’ll get more bang for your buck in Park City. I’m obviously partial to Park City because I live here, but I live here because of the reasons above. It just makes more sense than Vail.

If you want to know more about Park City, or have any questions give me (Scott) a call at 435.901.4309 or email me at maizlish@gmail.com.

I’d even be happy to show you my favorite places to get a drink in town. None of them require memberships or secret handshakes to get in. Promise.

 3/22 Canyons Spring Gruv Pond Skimming & Free Spring Concert collage-w550

The contest starts at 12:00 p.m. at the pond beside Red Pine Lodge and goes until 3:00 p.m. You will need a pass to ride the Gondola up like you were skiing to watch pond skimming. At 3:00 p.m., Grammy award-winning Steel Pulse begins performing in the resort village at the base of the Gondola. Cody ChesnuTT is opening for them this year and it’s going to be a blast. Kids are always welcome at Canyons, but this is a mountain town party and it’s right in the middle of Spring Break. You can bring them along to ski or snowboard and they can even check out the activities, but being in the center of this event with them will be tough.

Carpool or take the bus. Not sure what pond-skimming is? Check out this video from last year.

New Main Street Park City Condos Get Green Light!

By Scott Maizlish
Feb 27, 2014

park city utah main street condosThe Park Record just reported that Rio Grande will be breaking ground for the new Main Street Park City Condos this spring. This is just another sign of buyers being bullish on the Park City Market. As noted in a previous blog last month, new construction is back with a vengeance in Old Town. The Main Street Mall which is called the Parkite, has not even hit the market yet, and there is a ton of interest in the property.

New product in the immediate Main Street area was virtually non existent a couple years ago, and now we have quite a bit of top quality product coming on the market. With talk of Deer Valley adding a gondola from Main Street to the resort, Main Street Property will only see more demand in the not too distant future. Call me today for more info!

6 Reasons Why The Colony is a Smart Investment for Millionaires

By Scott Maizlish
Feb 24, 2014

The Colony at White Pine Canyon is one of the most desirable ski in/ski out communities in the world, with 67% of its 274 home sites already sold. The Colony is  located at The Canyons Resort in Park City Utah.

With improved home sites ranging in price from $1 to $4 million and homes going for $3.5 to $30 million, it takes a certain portfolio to invest here, but it looks like one of the smartest moves you could make in 2014.

A bear of a stock market, the reliable business growth in Utah, and the potential of Salt Lake City combined with the gorgeous homes themselves, international access, and unrivaled recreation opportunities are sure to increase demand for homes in The Colony.

CEOs of Fortune 500 companies already have their homes here, and these are the reasons why property in The Colony is a smart investment for millionaires.

A Bear Stock Market The stock market has lost its bullish tendencies and investors, especially millionaires, are looking to real estate as the top alternative to the market in 2014.

With people looking to move their wealth into stable property, you can be sure they’ll be looking at Utah. Our business-friendly climate, recreation opportunities, blossoming tech industry, and overall growth are already attracting attention.

SLC is U.S. #5 Fastest Growing City Forbes has listed our neighbor, Salt Lake City, 5th on the list of 100 fastest growing cities in America for 2014.

This announcement follows 3 years of Utah dominating the Forbes Best States for Business, thanks to a stable growth-economy and business-friendly climate. 2013 was the first year it was knocked out of the number one slot, but it didn’t fall far. It held strong at #3.

Business-friendly growth is visible all along the Wasatch Mountains from Provo to Ogden and is about to boom.

Google Fiber in Salt Lake City Google is in the planning stages of connecting the city with Google Fiber. That puts Salt Lake City on the map for more investment firms, banks, silicon startups, tech companies, and global corporations.

We’ve already got our share of international players like Adobe and Goldman Sachs. We’re also home to some of the most successful growth companies in the world like Qualtrics and Domo. All of these companies rely on big data, and Google Fiber will provide them and others with a competitive advantage that will not be ignored.

This deal is certain to attract new businesses, investors, and executives of the same caliber. Though it’s not inked yet, Provo’s existing Google Fiber network and Salt Lake’s above ground utilities infrastructure make it look like a good bet.

International Access to The Colony colonysign-w550

The Colony is already a refuge for CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, and will be immediately appealing to any executives who are drawn to Salt Lake City but want a home out of the infamous inversion.

Spread over 4,600 acres, The Colony preserves 90% of its land as open space. The homes are 35 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport and even closer to Downtown SLC. This makes an easy commute for executives who want to live out of the smog and travel regularly.

Unrivaled Recreation Opportunities

6775025900_26284d07e1_z-w550 For anyone who loves the outdoors, it just doesn’t get any better. To start, you get exclusive ski in/ski out access to Canyons Ski Resort in the winter, one of the largest resorts in North America. 9 of Canyons 19 ski lifts and more than 50% of the resort terrain is located within The Colony. Snowboarders are welcome, too.

Two more resorts are within easy reach in Park City— Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort. Six others, including Alta, Snowbird, and Powder Mountain are a little over an hour away and there are Olympic nordic skiing facilities in Park City. Snowshoeing is another winter favorite.

When it’s not snowing, the Mid-Mountain Trail runs directly through the community, connecting you to over 400 miles of maintained singletrack for mountain biking, hiking, running, and horseback riding.

The Homes Home sites here range in size from 4-113 acres and feature some of the most beautifully designed estates on the planet. Each home is nestled into aspens and pines filled with wildlife. It’s like living in your own national park.

Here are some of the best.

This 17,606 square foot equestrian dream estate is nestled on 4.80 acres in one of North America’s largest resorts and contains 8 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. It includes amenities like a large indoor pool, a home theater, professional kitchen, and a 3000 bottle wine cellar.

The Definitive Guide To Choosing A Park City Ski-In/Ski-Out Home

By Scott Maizlish
Feb 05, 2014

9998697_201_12-w525

Like anything worthwhile, it takes some time to choose the best ski-in/ski-out home in Park City.  They come in all shapes and sizes, from multi-thousand square foot homes to one- or two-bedroom condos.

No matter what the size, you’re looking for the luxury of skiing right out of your door.  No more treacherous drives on powder days or waiting in lift lines at the base of the resort does the term “First Tracks” ring a bell?  You can enjoy the privacy of your own home for lunch or hot chocolate to warm up and immediate relaxation is accessible at the end of a long day.

The square footage, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and overall quality of your home are important, but that’s not where you need to start.

Consider the following things that many miss before you focus in on the details.

Your Family

Screen Shot 2014-02-05 at 10.13.28 AM-w525The people using the home are the most important consideration.  Your ski-in/ski-out refuge should accommodate all the people you care about, from snowboarders to beginner skiers and loved ones who get altitude sickness.  These are the most common issues to consider when it comes to family members.

Are there any Snowboarders?
If yes, this will take a few resorts off your list of options.  For example, Deer Valley Resort doesn’t allow them on the lifts. There are only a few resorts in the country that are ski-only, but it’s the first thing you need to think about.  Don’t worry though, there are plenty of amazing resorts that do allow them, like Park City Mountain Resort, and Vail’s Canyons Resort.

What is everyone’s skill level?
It’s important to know this because homes are placed beside ski runs of varying difficulties.  Many are easy skill levels, but some are intermediate, so make sure that everyone can make it home at the end of the day.  Take a look at the ratings of the runs leading back to the house or better yet, ski them yourself when you’re visiting.

Is altitude sickness a problem?
Most ski resorts will be past 7,000 feet above sea level.  Everyone who comes from around sea level will have to adjust, but some people can suffer from headaches and nausea.  It’s not a common issue, but it is a problem for some. Be certain your family is comfortable at high altitudes.

Your Resort
Each resort offers unique communities, amenities, and terrain that will affect your choice.  Going  true ski-in/ski-out, means being immersed in that resort, so make sure you’ve done your homework.  Look at the different communities available at each resort, consider the amenities, and don’t forget about the ski terrain.

Communities
Every resort has unique communities to choose from and they all have different benefits.  Some communities have more open space and privacy, while others serve up views and convenience worth the trade.  There are condos in the hearts of towns and ski villages or homes in mountain solitude.

Amenities
Every community has different amenities and HOAs.  Some will come with club memberships that provide access to ski-in/ski-out lodges or restaurants on the mountain, while others will wax your skis every night.  Would you eat dinner at any of the restaurants at the resort?  Examine all the perks at each resort and the HOA fees that come with them.

The Terrain
How many skiable acres?  How much annual snowfall?  There should be a good mix of beginner, intermediate, and advanced terrain to make everyone happy.  You may already be familiar, but if you aren’t, do your homework on skiing that you’re committing to.

Your Home 9995141_101_12-w525

Once you’ve zeroed in on a resort and a community, start to look at specific homes. Before you get focused on the curtains, you have a few more high-level considerations.  Some of the best homes are seated deep in the mountain communities and that means more snow and added time to your commute into town.  Also, there are communities that are almost true ski-in/ski-out, but not quite there

Commute
Some of the homes with the best ski access are tucked away the deepest in the community.  If you are planning on staying home for most of your time there, it’s the ideal situation.  For those who want to spend most of their time in town, the location of your home can add time  to your commute.

Mountain Life
Homes in communities at high altitudes get the most snow which is great for skiing.  Lots of snow at a home also means taking care of snow removal.  Usually, hiring a snow removal company does the trick and for steep and icy driveways a heated driveway can be the answer.  You’ll see plenty of wildlife up here, and if you’re right beside a ski run you could hear a snowcat grooming the trail every now and then, but it’ll be worth the fresh corduroy or untracked powder in the morning.

True Ski-In/Ski-Out
Some homes will be in communities with a lift at the center that you may need to take a short walk or drive to.  They typically have ski lockers at this location so you aren’t always lugging skis around, which is great.  These aren’t ski-in/ski-out from your door, but they’re close to it.  If you want to ski out of your door, just make sure that’s what you’re getting.

If you’ve considered all of this your choice is practically made. Now, you simply have to find the home you like.

The Inside Scoop on Brand New Real Estate in Historic Park City

By Scott Maizlish
Jan 27, 2014

8240869316_bd602de078_o-w550Historic Main Street in Old Town is one of the most vibrant places to live in Park City. Owning real estate here plugs you straight into the heart of our unique mountain town community.  You’ll be within walking distance of the town lift to PCMR, the best restaurants and shops in town, and the transit center.

It also hasn’t seen any significant new real estate development in a long time.

There are strict regulations that protect the historic mining town aesthetic, keeping the small town feel alive.  People love getting along with their neighbors and being surrounded by mountain views.  Because of these things, you don’t find many new opportunities to purchase new construction properties in the area.

Until now.

You may have noticed construction going on at the old Main Street Mall (it’s about time) and the Silver Queen Hotel.  New luxury condos will be available in both of these buildings.  There’s another construction site you may have heard rumors about.  At the base of the Town Lift,  a development called The Rio Grande Condos will fill the empty space adjacent to Flying Sumo Sushi.

Here’s what I know so far.

The Silver Queen Hotel is being gutted and totally redone.  This desirable property on the corner of Main Street and Heber Avenue was predicted to open as a condominium-style hotel for the 2013/2014 ski season with the chance of selling condos as individual apartment units.  Since it’s still under construction, I’d bet that some of those condos will be for sale upon completion.  Two penthouses are being added to the roof, along with a fully landscaped roof deck.

The Rio Grande Luxury Condos are going to be built on the last remaining parcel of land directly connected to the Town Lift and PCMR.  Ten units across three levels will be accessed by private elevators and underground parking.  Sports storage and a ski locker room are planned for the upper level and a roof deck with a hot tub will provide relaxation after a day of skiing or mountain biking.  Construction begins this spring and these units won’t last long.

The Main Street Mall project is well underway and though I’m going to miss Fat Kid Pizza, this is going to be a gorgeous property.  That mall was always an eyesore as its architecture was not congruent with the rest of Historic Main Street.  When finished, storefronts will occupy the Main Street level and 15 condos will be built on 2 upper floors.  The condo floor plans range in size from 1350 square feet to 3,500 square feet.  A pool, gardens and terraces will invigorate the rooftop.  A new top level will hold a penthouse and the buildings exterior appearance is going to be improved drastically.

All of these properties will be eligible for nightly rental and in high demand, especially during Sundance.  Whether you’re looking for a vacation home, permanent residence, or pure rental property, these are some of the best opportunities in years.

Now that Sundance is out of the way, construction will pick back up and these opportunities will be developing quickly.  They really won’t last long.  I want to give you the chance to get in on these properties so I’ll use my network to keep you updated with the latest news and listings.

Keep reading my blog, follow my facebook page and twitter account, or sign up for my Park City Real Estate Report email on the right hand side of the page.  Feel free to give me a call at 435.901.4309 or email me at maizlish@gmail.com for more info. I’d love to see you benefit from one of these new developments.

Park City Named One Of The Best Ski Towns For Investing

By Scott Maizlish
Jan 16, 2014

RealtyTrac(R) (www.realtytrac.com), the leading online marketplace for foreclosure properties, today released a report identifying the nation's best ski resort towns for real estate investing, which ranks 19 towns with high-quality ski resorts based on the health of the local housing market and opportunity to acquire profitable investment homes.

To create the rankings, RealtyTrac identified all towns with a population of at least 2,500 that had at least one ski resort that ranked in the top 50 of the 182 ski resorts ranked by ZRankings (as featured in Forbes) for "Pure Awesomeness Factor" in terms of the quality of the skiing and snowboarding experience. We ended up with 19 towns on that list, and wethen ranked those towns based on their combined ranking for the PAF along with eight real estate-related factors: distance from closest airport, unemployment rate, median list price of a residential property, foreclosure inventory percent of all housing units, rental vacancy rate, gross yield on a rental property, 2013 foreclosure rate, and percent change in foreclosure rate from 2010.

8 Park City Neighborhoods With Easy Commutes to Salt Lake City

By Scott Maizlish
Jan 13, 2014

9995307_101_72-w550Here are 8 Park City neighborhoods that have easy commutes to downtown Salt Lake City to get you out of the inversion.  With the increasing air pollution in the Salt Lake Valley, more and more people are looking to find homes in Park City.  Our free busses, world-class ski resorts and over 450 miles of non-motorized recreational trails, amazing education system, and clean air are hard to resist when you spend most of the winter in a cloud of smog.

While I hope that Salt Lake City and the state of Utah start to find ways to reduce that pollution I thought it’d be helpful to provide a guide to some viable options in Park City.  All of these neighborhoods are a 20-40 minute commute to downtown SLC and close to everything you could want in Park City.

Summit Park

Summit Park has the quickest commute to downtown Salt Lake City—just a hair over 20 minutes.  It’s one of the most reasonably priced neighborhoods in Park City and ideal for anyone who loves the outdoors.  Summit Park is tucked into north-facing pines above 7,000 ft and has amazing backcountry skiing just out your door and year-round trail access.  The Road to Wos is one of my favorite mountain biking, hiking,  and running trails in town.  You’ll also be right beside No Worries Cafe,  a locals favorite for breakfast or lunch with the family.  An on-ramp to I-80 is right there.  AWD or 4WD is almost certainly required for this area.

Featured Home 270 Aspen Drive

Summit Park-w550

This beautiful 2885 square foot single family home sits on .24 acres, has 4 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms.  You’re less than a mile to the I-80 on ramp and this is the shortest commute to Salt Lake City that you’ll find in Park City.  No Worries is right around the corner and the ski resorts are only 15 minutes away if you don’t feel like driving up the road to the trailhead for a backcountry tour.  You’ll be happy to come back to the fresh mountain air every day.

Pinebrook

Pinebrook is another just a few miles down the road from Summit Park and is only a 25 minute commute to downtown SLC.   It has memorable views and wildlife-filled forests surround you, but you’ll have less snow to shovel here than in Summit Park.  Everyone is close to the private trail system that takes you all the way up to the Mid-Mountain Trail.  Restaurants and shopping are close by, with Quarry Village in the center of the neighborhood and the Tanger Outlets just down the road.  The free bus route runs through Pinebrook, making it easy to get into town.  Take your kids sledding on Ecker Hill or to play in the park and enjoy the frequent moose sightings from a distance.

Featured Home 7440 BuckboardPinebrook-w550

Tucked away on a .9 acre lot in upper pinebrook, this 4220 square foot home has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.  Your balcony outside of the master bedroom is the perfect place to have coffee, watch the sunrise, and enjoy the fresh mountain air before you drive to SLC.  It’s surrounded by world-class hiking and biking trails and a short hop to I-80. This home will be hard to leave every day. View More Homes In Pinebrook

Jeremy Ranch

Jeremy Ranch is just on the other side of I-80 from Pinebrook and  is a 25 minute commute to downtown SLC.  This family-friendly neighborhood sits on a south-facing aspect and enjoys more sunshine than other neighborhoods.  It’s the place to be in Park City if snow on the ground doesn’t make you happy.  Easy access to the Glenwild trail system will satisfy the mountain bikers, hikers, or runners in your family.  The Jeremy Ranch Golf & Country Club and its 18-hole championship golf course are in the middle of the area and you have quick access to Quarry Village Shopping Center and Kimball Junction.

This single-family, 5633 square foot home sits at the top of Jeremy Ranch and has one of the most spectacular views in town.  6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms provide enough space to have family and friends visit for a ski vacation or Sundance, and this .63 acre lot gets more sunlight than most in Park City.  A home theater room, 2,000+ bottle wine cellar, and gorgeous master suite are just some of this home’s luxuries.  If you’re looking for a spacious home out of the deep snow, with a quick commute to SLC, this has your name on it.

Black Hawk Station

Black Hawk Station is right beside Kimball Junction and is one of the most affordable places to find a home in Park City.  It’s close to the highway and just under a 30 minute commute to downtown SLC.  The road noise is minimal and the neighborhood is circled by open space.  Many young families have homes here and the Glenwild trail system surrounds the community.  If you like to fish, the catch-and-release East Canyon Creek is in right your backyard.  All three Park City ski resorts are a quick 10-15 minutes away.

Featured Home 1038 Lincoln Lane blackhawkstation-w550

Trailside Estates & Mountain Ranch Estates

These areas are night next to each other and Trailside is popular with full-time residents because it contains some affordable family homes that are right beside the Trailside Elementary School.  Mountain Ranch Estates features luxury homes and unrivaled views of the Wasatch.  Both are close to exits on US-40, and one mile south I-80 and still makes for a quick commute to Salt Lake City.  Around 63 acres of the Trailside area is preserved open space, there is a convenient trail system that plugs into the Round Valley trail system for groomed nordic skiing in the winter and singletrack hiking, running, and mountain biking when the snow is gone.  There are two tournament-sized soccer fields, two playgrounds, a dog park, a full-sized basketball court, two tennis courts, two volleyball courts, and a new mountain bike skills park.  No one in your family can possibly be bored here.

 Featured Home 5915 Mountain Ranch Drive

trailside-w550

The highest home on Mountain Ranch Drive, this 4655 beauty has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and an amazing outdoor layout.  A putting green with sand trap and water feature, fire pit, shuffleboard, and multiple decks and patios make entertaining guests a joy.  You have a panoramic view of the Wasatch and Park City’s ski resorts from your dining room, and Trailside Park is almost in your back yard.  US-40 is a quick drive and connects to I-80 for a painless commute to SLC.

Featured Home Sorry, none currently listed.

Prospector

The Prospector area  is the longest commute to downtown Salt Lake City and is still under 40 minutes.  It’s closer to historic Main Street than any of the other areas I’ve mentioned and is in the heart of the free bus route.  The homes here are similar to homes in Park Meadows, but much more affordable.  The Rail Trail runs through the neighborhood and you use it to bike or cross country ski all the way to Coalville if you wanted to.  Singletrack trail systems surround the area and all three ski resorts are within 15 minutes of you.

Featured Home 2266 Doc Holliday Drive prospector-w550

4100 square feet of attention to detail, this 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom home in Prospector is loaded with everything you need.  Access to the Rail Trail and singletrack on the hills behind make for great biking, hiking, snowshoeing, and running year round.  This home has a longer commute than other neighborhoods, but you’re closer to the center of Park City and it’s still less than 40 minutes to downtown SLC.  Totally worth the trade.

How to Sundance Like A Local

By Scott Maizlish
Jan 07, 2014

sundance_film_festival-w600Ask any Park City local and they’ll tell you there are two ways to Sundance:

1. The right way.

2. The way tourists do it.

The annual Sundance Film Festival, held each year in the quaint, vibrant mountain town of Park City, Utah, is a jam-packed 10 days of A-list parties, star sightings, people watching, skiing, live music, and oh, yeah — movies. Which anymore, seem to be a bit of a Sundance afterthought.

In fact, the word “Sundance” is now used as a verb by locals to describe the festival. As in, “How are you going to Sundance this year?” Local translation: “Are you hunkering down or taking part?”

Though Sundance does bring some unwelcomed traffic jams and attitude, for the most part, locals enjoy this event as much as the tourists do. But they participate very differently. Here are a few tips from Park City locals on how to better blend in, not stick out like a frostbitten thumb, and enjoy Sundance like the ones who live here.

1.  Ride the bus. Park City offers an unbeatable transit system. The busses are free and take riders all over the town. During Sundance especially they are the best way to get around. Not only do you not have to fight for a parking spot that will set you back $50, you also never know who you’ll meet on the bus.  Celebrities have been known to ditch their limos in favor of this more practical transportation. And all sorts of wheeling and dealing goes on between stops. Got tickets you can’t use? You’ll likely find someone willing to put your name on the list for an impossible-to-get-into party in exchange.

2.  Color is the new black. The locals call Sundancers “PIBs,” which stands for People In Black. You’re going to see films, not to a funeral. Add some color! You’ll blend in better if you’re not dressed head-to-toe in black. Photo Credit http://www.rocmaloneyphoto.com/

3.  Lose the ‘tude. There’s a saying Park City over Sundance that goes like this: “Don’t you know who I am? No? Good, we’re even.” Locals understand that with the Hollywood scene comes a little ego. But throwing a fit at Starbucks because the barista forgot to add extra foam to your non-fat, extra-hot soy latte just isn’t how we do things here. You’re in the mountains. Breathe in the fresh, crisp air and try to relax. Mountain time is a state of mind, not just a time zone.

4.  Dress appropriately. It’s winter. In the Rocky Mountains. It’s probably going to snow. It’s definitely going to be cold. You need shoes with good traction, a coat and covered legs. We know you want to look nice and show off your Southern California tan, but mini skirts and high heels make us laugh. And they’re not just an impractical choice, they’re also dangerous! Walking on the hilly, snow-covered sidewalks in stilettos has been the cause of many trips to the local hospital. And lines into venues often start outside. There’s nothing sexy about frostbite. Dress accordingly!

5.  Lanyards are for losers. I know that sounds harsh, but if you don’t want to be the subject of a local’s Facebook post about the funny place a “PIB wearing his lanyard” was spotted, understand they’re not always necessary. I’ve actually seen people wearing these at the gym ON THE TREADMILL and in hot tubs. Trust me, there is no VIP exercise equipment because you bought a festival pass. In fact, it’s really not necessary to wear these unless you are at a movie. The bartenders don’t wait on you faster and the locals just chuckle. Your movie tickets are equally as valid if tucked away in your purse or wallet rather than displayed around your neck.

8 Park City Holiday Activities You’ll Love in 2013

By Scott Maizlish
Dec 22, 2013

If you’re spending the holidays in Park City and looking for some activities to mix in with your days at the resort, you have plenty to choose from.  The highlight of the 2013 season are the historic Olympic Trials being held at the U.S. Olympic Park, but they’re just one of many things to do.  For example, you could ride an actual bobsled and get a taste of what 80 mph and 5 G’s of force feels like.  There are also plenty of mellow activities like outdoor ice-skating, sleigh rides, rustic dinners, window shopping on Main Street, and more.  Your problem won’t be finding an activity that works, it’ll be how to fit in everything you want to do!  Here are some of my favorites.

1.  Olympic Park - U.S. Olympic Trials

skiing-jump_00446184-w600

This year, the Olympic Park has much more than bobsled rides available (which are a huge rush).  The US Speedskating, Nordic Combined, and Ski Jumping trials will all be happening from Dec. 27th - 29th to decide who goes to Sochi Games.  More than one historic event will be happening here. Women’s ski-jumping is making its Olympic Trials debut and the winner of this event will be the first female ski jumper to qualify for the 2014 U.S. Olympic team.  If you want to ride a real bobsled and experience 80 mph and 5 G’s of force, make sure to check the times and plan accordingly.

2.  Snow Tubing at Gorgoza Park snow tubing

Lift-served tubing at Gorgoza Park is a blast, if you go at the right time.  This place is a wonderland for kids and well-known, so there is a huge line for the three beginner, and four advanced lanes, unless you go at dinner time.  Tubing is even fun as an adult, so you won’t get bored, and there are other activities for your children.  Your kids can rent pint-sized snowmobiles or learn how to ski on the mellow slopes.  Tubes are provided, and wearing goggles is a great idea.

3.  Mountain Sleigh Ride & Dinner images-1-w600

Park City Mountain Resort offers a sleigh ride and dinner mountain experience.  A 20-min sleigh ride up the slopes will take you to a mountain lodge, where their chef will prepare a western-style gourmet meal for your family. The lodge has two fireplaces to keep you warm and a musician to entertain.  Once you’re finished, the sleigh will take you back to civilization.  Dress very warmly, there will be blankets on the sleigh ride, but you’ll need to be dressed for the mountain.  If you’d rather just take a sleigh ride and not commit to the two and a half hour experience, you can easily do that.

4.  Canyons Zip Line

images-2-w600Canyons Zip Tour Adventure offers you two soaring choices.  The first is an 800 foot long tree-top ride ride by the Red Pine lodge and is a lot of fun for anyone with an adventurous spirit.  The second is the Lookout Zip Tour and takes you for a 2,111 foot ride across a canyon that requires some guts.  If you’re afraid of heights, the Lookout Zip Tour isn’t for you, but it’s a great way to please any of the high-energy members of your family.

5.  Santa at Deer Valley

Santa_in_the_Disney_parade-w600On Dec. 24th you and your little ones can take your pictures with Santa at Deer Valley Resort.  He’ll be visiting the Snow Park Lodge from 9-11 a.m. and following his reindeer to the Silver Lake Lodge from 12:00 p.m.-1:30 p.m.

6.  PCMR Outdoor Ice Skating

skyviewweb-w600 This is Park City’s only outdoor ice skating rink and it’ll be surrounded by cheerful lights and music. Knowing Park City, you could also enjoy the magical quiet of snowfall that you wouldn’t experience at an indoor rink.  You can even rent out the rink for a private family event.  The rink is conveniently surrounded by shops and restaurants, has warm beverages available, and skate walkers for the little ones who can’t quite skate on their own.

7.   New Year’s Eve Fireworks at Canyons

2013_Slideshow_FireWorks Canyons has a whole day of festivities planned for New Year’s Eve Day, and the fireworks are always amazing here.  They start at 7:30 pm so the whole family can make it and they’ll be going off over the Orange Bubble Express.  Dress warmly and get there early for a good spot on the ski beach.  There will be A LOT of people here so it would be a good idea to plan on at least eating at the following celebration at the Grand Summit Hotel.

8.  A Stroll Down Main Street

url-w600Park City’s Historic Main Street is always great for a good stroll and the Trolley can take you to the top of the street so you can walk down to make the experience less strenuous.  Shops, galleries, and restaurants line the street, and on Dec. 27th the art galleries will be providing refreshments from 6pm-9pm. It’s the last gallery stroll of the year, and a great way to experience Main Street.  You may even find some local art you just can’t live without.

If you have any questions about these events or are looking for more options, give me (Scott) a call at 435.901.4309 or email me at maizlish@gmail.com. There are more things to do than I’ve listed here and I can get you the inside scoop.

181 White Pine Canyon Park City is full of some of the best things in life, including luxury real estate that can’t be found anywhere else in the world.

Even with all of that space you have direct access to the members-only, ski-in/ski-out Talisker Tower restaurant and the Montage Deer Valley 5-Star resort.

Interior Design Tips With Mario Ferreira of Barclay Butera Interiors

By Scott Maizlish
Dec 12, 2013

What is a Park City homebuyer looking for in a home’s décor and interior design? If you want to sell your home and fetch top dollar in Park City, how do you dress up your home’s interior so that it will appeal to a wider range of buyers?Screen Shot 2013-12-12 at 3.23.59 PM
We’ve consulted with Mario Ferreira of Barclay Butera Interiors, one of the most sought after interior design firms in Park City. Mario Ferreira is often called upon by realtors in the community for help with their client’s homes to prepare them to be listed for sale.

So we asked Mario what he recommends to realtors for preparing their client’s homes to be ready for sale. Here is a short list of tips for putting your best foot forward when listing your property for sale:

  1. Depersonalize your home: As difficult as this may sound, when you are selling your home, it is not so much about the memories you created, but the memories you want a potential buyer to create. Having the following items such as, souvenirs, photos, plants etc., can sometimes distract prospective buyers from looking at the core aspects of your home. You want buyers focused on views, size of rooms, layout, etc. instead of looking at pictures of your family in Hawaii.
  2. Less is more: Sometimes we need to work with items we already have. Did you do a remodel in the past 15 years?  Less is always more when it comes to preparing your home for sale. If you have several items on your walls, or heavy window treatments, it is best to minimize them so you do not distract the buyers from the views, for example.  It also gives the prospective buyers the opportunity to envision their own design.
  3. Tend to the ‘punch list’ right away: If your home needs a little cosmetic touch up, or maintenance items are past due, it is always best to take care of these items prior to listing your home.  This will help you and your realtor get the home listed and sold, quickly and easily.  The last thing you need is to have your realtor contact you after a showing with a punch list of small items that need to be taken care of.
  4. De-clutter your garage: The garage, no not that!!!  If you’re the type of person that keeps your garage filled with all of those items that you just can’t throw away….Well guess what? This is a perfect time to get rid of those items. You want the prospective buyers to walk in the garage and say this is a perfect place to set up shop for themselves.

Park City Interior DesignerIf you’re thinking of listing your home, this is just a short list of interior design items to consider. Because your realtor is an expert when it comes to what prospective buyers are looking for, trust your realtor when it comes to putting your best foot forward.

 

Fanstastic Ski Home At The Canyons Resort

By Scott Maizlish

56 White Pine Canyon Road in Park City, UT

56 White Pine 56 Canyon RD in Park City, UT

Vail has taken over Canyons Ski Resort, and while they have been tight lipped about their plans to future enhancements, we all know whatever they do, it will be first class. I have already run into many skiers from Colorado that have come over, or are planning trips to Park City because of Vail’s Epic Pass.

I’ve blogged about many properties in the Colony before, and this particular property just came back on the market.  You are allowed to build a guest house on select lots in The Colony, and some owners have elected to build the guest house first, as they do not need a larger home. That being said, here is a 4 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom home that is just under 4000 feet. Offered fully furnished with some exceptions. The last guest homes that came on the market in The Colony sold quickly.

If you wish to build a larger main home in the future, you can when you are ready. The home has double master suites which is great when you a another couple joining you.  You have direct ski access from Crowning Glory ski run which drops you right down to Tombstone lift, and the Timberline Chair. If you are a powder enthusiast, you will get a few laps in on the north facing terrain before the masses get there.

Offered at $3,850,000 you can view the property at 56 White Pine Canyon RD in Park City, UT here.

It’s Time to Make a Successful Property Investment in Park City, Utah

By Scott Maizlish
Nov 25, 2013

park city real estate investmentThe last time investing in Park City property made this much sense was right around The 2002 Olympic Games held in Salt Lake City.  Park City was recently named Outside Magazine’s “Best Town in America” for 2013 and last year we earned the IMBA’s (International Mountain Biking Association) first and only Gold-Level status for mountain biking.  We’re the only town in the world with that IMBA status and it’s officially put us on the map as a year-round destination.  Every year I see more and more people out on the trails and with these recent accolades the competition for the best property in town is going to keep heating up.

We have 3 world-class ski resorts within 30 minutes of each other, the Sundance Film Festival, over 350 miles of non-motorized recreational trails, a Waldorf Astoria and a St. Regis, amazing local restaurants, and you want to know what the best part is?  The community.  All of the businesses and residents are in it together. We maintain open spaces and a small town feel like no other resort town has. Your kids can even ride the free bus here without you worrying about them. Seriously.

I want anyone who invests in this town to be successful and here are some of the things you need to know in order to get started.

Realistic Expectations

Set them. Buying property in a resort town is great investment as long as you’re clear on what you’re getting out of it (just like any other investment). The  first question you need to ask yourself is...   Are you or your family going to use the property? This will help you get clear on your expectations and determine things like the type of property you buy, how you rent it out, and what part of town you invest in. No matter what you decide, you’re going to need a good property management company, but we’ll get to that shortly.

Long-Term Rentals

If you or your family won’t be using the property, keep in mind that this will be a long-term investment and you’ll stay in good shape. Focus on a property that makes sense and is affordable for long-term renters who would want to sign a year lease(or more).  You can choose to rent it out in short-term increments(nightly and weekly) but the competition is high and I wouldn’t recommend it, unless we can find you the perfect location.  It’ll be much harder to generate the revenue you need for the property to pay for itself if you’re not using it and decide to rent it out short term.

Short-Term Rentals

It’s more common for people to use the property for themselves and their families (and way more fun too!). You’ll need to figure out a short-term rental plan that works for you. Going this route, you’ll be able to at least pay your property taxes, property management fees, HOA fees, and make some money back sometimes.  Realistically, you can expect your property to be empty for about six weeks in the Winter (December-March) and you should try to get a 3 month rental in the summer. This gives you and your family plenty of time to enjoy the property at the best times of the year and generate the revenue you need.

Property Management

Like I said, you need one. I’ve had personal investments saved from catastrophic damage by  Sarah Berry and her company Silver Peak Properties. Don’t just call someone in the Yellow Pages. She’ll help you figure out how to set prices for rent, advertise the property for you, find reliable tenants, and take care of anything that comes up so you don’t have to do it.  Winter presents a unique challenge and paying for snow removal and winter maintenance is a necessity. If you ignore this you can end up with collapsed decks, water damage inside the home from ice dams on the roof, and unusable driveways. Your property manager will help you pay for proper maintenance so you don’t end up shelling out more or losing potential revenue later.

Hottest Rental Areas

With three resorts so close together, there are no bad locations, but resort condos, Old Town properties, and any ski-in-ski-out properties are always in the highest demand because they plug you right into the heart of the mountain town. There are also plenty of options right beside the resorts that aren’t ski-in-ski-out but put you within a few minutes of the lift line that are fantastic. Park City has many unique neighborhoods that offer different combinations of benefits. It’s not like Vail, where you have a small village area to work with. Plenty of the homes away from the base of the resorts are on a free bus route that connects them all to the rest of the town, so it’s hard to go wrong here.

 

Now you know enough to be dangerous (to other investors). I’m happy to help fill in the blanks , make recommendations, and answer any questions you may have. Give me (Scott) a call at 435.901.4309 or email me at maizlish@gmail.com and I’ll help you out.  If you’re a Park City business and have anything to add to the conversation, please comment or share. I’d love to feature your business in an interview or blog posts on future topics.
