Summer is underway in Telluride, as the 4th of July marks the unofficial leap into the season. We’ve seen a lot of early monsoon rains this year, which is a great sign after a dry and windy spring. The San Juan high country is green and popping with wildflowers, creating the perfect backdrop for hiking and biking adventures.

In the real estate world, despite the first decrease in overall dollar volume in recent history, average sales prices are still up 31% in San Miguel County (SMC). Still, it feels like we are on the cusp of a shift in the local market. Obviously, it’s hard to know exactly what that means, but here are the tea leaves we’re reading:

Let’s talk about some GREAT housing news for the Telluride workforce!

This summer, some lucky locals in need of affordable housing will be able to move into the brand new Sunnyside development, less than 3 miles from the Town of Telluride (next to Eider Creek on the spur). Comprising of 30 rental units including tiny homes, apartments and townhomes, Sunnyside will meet the needs of a wide variety of families. Rents start at just over $1,198 per month, and go up to $2,565 depending on the size of the unit and the household income of the tenant (you read that right - the most expensive 4-bedroom is under $2,600/month! ????). To qualify for tenancy, all applicants must meet employment qualifications. This affordable housing…

As we parse through 2022’s first quarter data here at Telluride Properties, we find that most resort markets have seen a decline in the number of sales year-over-year due to a lack of inventory but mixed results for dollar volume of sales. While a few markets such as Jackson Hole may be experiencing dollar volume declines, significant dollar volume increases are still happening in Telluride, Big Sky and Aspen (while the Hamptons remain steady). This may indicate a change as we emerge from the pandemic, where radically low inventories are our own “new normal” (only 5 homes currently available in Telluride and 9 in Mountain Village), causing an overall decline in sales volume while values in these areas continue to rise…

This is a series of videos to chat about the two proposed ballot measures addressing Short Term Rentals in the Town of Telluride. The less aggressive measure, 2D, which I supported immensely, passed by a landslide on November 2nd, 2021.

Hi friends -

Today I’m concluding this series of videos by sharing my "why." Why I've spent so much time and effort over these last few months on discussing these Short Term Rental ballot measures and fighting for Measure 2D. I only scratched the surface of that here, but I hope this gives you a sense of why 2D is the compromise the Telluride community deserves.

Posters around town claim that 40% of homes in Telluride are Short Term Rentals. That number is carefully cherry-picked and wildly inflated. I'm here to share the truth, because that's what our community deserves!

Do you have questions about the competing ballot measures? Contact me and I’d be glad to help!

With so much misinformation floating around the internet, I’m doing a series of “mythbuster” posts to clear up some confusion! Starting with this big one: that the number of vacation rental units has increased by 75% in 5 years.

In reality, yes, the number of *licenses* has grown by that much, but a large amount of this increase is due to the change of accounting for properties like Mountainside Inn and Ice House (that went from 1 license per property to 1 license per unit - all of which were already short-term rented). 10 to 20 licenses are also overcounted each year when a unit with an existing license sells and the buyer applies for a new license, counting that unit as double. In reality,…

hi friends-

As promised, I’m back to keep you posted on current events here in Telluride, Colorado.

In this video, I’m talking about the labor shortage, the housing crisis, and why I support focusing on providing more deed-restricted affordable housing to locals, as opposed to attempting to regulate the free market.

Ballot measure 2D not only generates funds for affordable housing (through increased business license fees for Short Term Rentals), but it also protects tax revenue generated by Short Term Rentals that is specifically designated…

This is the first in a series of videos to chat about the proposed cap on Short Term Rentals in the Town of Telluride. Stay tuned for more!

hi friends-

Today we’re talking about probably THE most hot-button topic in Telluride, which is the proposed cap on Short Term Rentals (STRs).

For those who aren’t aware, there is going to be an item on the November ballot where Telluride residents will be able to choose whether or not they support capping STR licenses at 400 per year. To provide context, there are currently about 740 licenses, including some properties that will be exempt from the cap (individual hotel rooms & primary residences).

My goal is to keep residents, visitors and property…
