    Did you know that yesterday was National Coffee Day?  We were alerted by an incoming e mail in the morning!   It seemed only right to celebrate!  What a lot of influence coffee has on our days.   From earliest memories people in my family started their day with a steaming cup of hot coffee.  Do you remember the commercial that said " the best part of waking u , is Folgers in your cup."  At the time, I could not get the concept.  Until I was well into my thirties I thought it smelled good and tasted nasty!   Look at all the people who love it.  As we all seek to achieve, a jolt to awareness state is essential.     Coffee shops are all over Durango.  We have two Starbucks, several Durango Joes , the Steaming Bean, Magpies, and Durango Coffee Co.  All these within an easy walk.     Pe...

  Durango Condominium and townhome unit sales in La Plata County (Durango, Durango Mountain Resort, Bayfield and Ignacio) declined by 20% year-to-date when comparing 2014 to 2013.  The average sales price for the same timeframe actually increased by 14.6%, however.  Due to that larger average sales price, the total close dollar volume of condominiums and townhomes only declined by 8.3% from $40.2 million down to $36.9 million.  We’re always looking to see what the sales price was compared to the last asking price so that we can determine these sold price percentage (this lets us know how much dickering the sellers are willing to do) and it remained dead even in both years at 96.8%.   In order to understand the change in number of units sold, I thought I would take a little closer look a...

54 Limestone Court   It doesn't get much better than this. Absolutely one of the finest units available in the Black Bear Development. Attention paid to every detail in this fully furnished, immaculate and professionally decorated 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhome. Living area is perfect for entertaining or just enjoying a quiet evening after a full day of skiing across the street. Imagine a place where you and your family can come to enjoy the resort area in comfort and style, walk to the ski lifts but still be able to go home for lunch before hitting the slopes in the afternoon. Great restaurants and all the amenities are just across the street. Very well built with a fantastic layout.   Samantha Gallant Gallant Real Estate Team 700 Main Ave. Durango CO 81301

Durango Real Estate  1st Quarter Sales Results We have finished compiling the 1st quarter Durango (all of La Plata County actually) real estate statistics where we compare the 2014 results to those from 2013 for the same time period.  Unless otherwise noted, all statistics are for residential properties only. Although at The Wells Group our sales volume is up year-to-date, across the entire MLS, the total residential sales volume actually declined this year from $60.3 million to  $55.8 million.  That represented a decline of 7.45%.  The average sales price, however increased from $357,000 to $362,730 which was a 1.57% increase.  Similarly, the median sales price went up .5%.  When looking at the dollar volume for all types of real estate in the County (residential, land, farm and ranch,...

    Home Scouting Report-Application We’ve recently added a new service that will be a benefit to both buyers and sellers.  This product does several things that are extremely helpful and I am still learning how to fully use the application myself.  You download the software onto your smart phone after I send you an invitation.  You then add your own password.  You enter in your criteria for a home search and it returns all of the properties in the MLS that match your criteria.  Unlike Zillow, which only gets about 60% of the residential listings, Home Scouting Report gets 100% of them.  You will see pictures of the listing, details on the property and a map showing you where it is located.  It will also show you other homes for sale in that area.  You can even set it up so that the sol...
