Crazy Colorado Weather

Snow In September!

Colorado is having trouble making up it’s mind on the weather this month! The beginning of the month held several 90F+ days and forest fires throughout the state. September 8th however, we experienced a temperature drop of nearly 50 degrees and enough rain and snow to leave the ground muddy! Wolf Creek Pass got 13 inches of snow, A full 13 days before the solstice!

Buying Homes During Covid-19

Buying a Home During The Coronavirus Pandemic

Coronavirus has made many things uncertain in our lives. From high school graduates trying to leave for college, to world travelers dealing with border restrictions due to the pandemic, to 16 year olds buying their first car, we are all being affected in one way or another.

Buying a home can seem like an impossible task right now, but you may be surprised to learn there are actually several advantages to purchasing property during this pandemic! Below, we’ve listed a few advantages to buying a home during the coronavirus pandemic.

  1. Fewer People Shopping – Most people are nervous to buy during this time of uncertainty. This can work to your advantage as there will be less competition to purchase the house you want!
  2. Low Interest Rates – Interest rates are at an all time low right now, you might as well take advantage of it!
  3. Surplus of Listings – Covid-19 has pushed many people to change the way they are living and to make big decisions… such as listing their homes for sale! This can help you as there are many home options currently on the market, and not many buyers to compete with.
  4. Mountain Towns are Safer! – This one is more specific to Pagosa Springs and surrounding areas.. Where would you rather be during a pandemic? A crowded city? Or a serene mountain town with a population less than some larger neighborhoods? I know what my choice is!

These are just some of the pros of buying a home during these strange times. I hope this article has given you the extra push you need to go out and find your dream home! You can view homes currently for sale in Pagosa Springs here, or give us a call to let us know what you’re looking for!

Archuleta Virtual Fair

Archuleta County Virtual Fair and Livestock Auction

2020 has been a difficult year for most. With public events being restricted left and right, it’s become increasingly difficult to safely execute them.  The Archuleta County Fair Board had to think outside the box to make the 69th annual county fair happen.

Faced with Colorado in-person meeting restrictions, they decided the best thing to do was move the shows, and 4-H livestock auction, completely online.

All shows are open to immediate family members only, but you will be able to watch the livestock shows and bid in the auction from the comfort of your home!

The livestock show live-stream links, as well as the auction link can be found here: Virtual Fair & Auction

Fair begins Thursday, July 30th, and the auction will take place on August 1st at 6pm. These 4-H’ers have put months of hard work into their animals and would appreciate your support during this transitional time!
