Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using Fraser CO FHA 203k Renovation Loans.Many people are not aware of a special government loan program that is part of the Federal Housing Administration or FHA (a department within HUD). A buyer or existing home owner can do meaningful amounts of remodeling or updates to their existing home without having a higher cost second lien thanks to this special FHA loan program.However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. Although, you can repaint, replace flooring and appliances, add a room to an existing structure (which can add to value tremendously as you increase the square feet of your home) as well as remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms.This loan ...

Being a Fraser Colorado First Time Homebuyer makes you have to consider your options before you buy. The first thing you will need to consider is what your long-term goals are with being a home owner  and how your goals fit in with that plan. One goal could be to stop paying rent that just increases after every lease you renew.Buying your own home first is one of the happiest times of your life! However, a lot of paperwork and time goes into it and finding a lender with great reviews will ease much of the stress. But, the satisfaction you get from your first home closing is something you will never forget! The benefits of being a Fraser Colorado First Time Homebuyer greatly outweighs renting for the following reasons:          Greater privacy.          Homes typically increase in value ...

There are new temporary trail closures in the Arapahoe National Forest, just outside of Winter Park and Fraser. The Fraser Boundary Fuels Project has moved to Vasquez Road on October 31st, 2011. This is the logging operation to mitigate the pine beetle trees by removing fuels and reducing the chance of a wildfire near the towns of Winter Park & Fraser. Trails Closed: Twin Bridges & Surrounding Campsites - there will be a burn pile near the junction of Twin Bridges and Blue Sky   Elk Meadows Area (near CR 72)   D2   D4 (upper section)   WTB The Forest Service asks that everyone please respect these temporary safety closures so that loggers can complete their work and move on as quickly as possible. And for public safety, closures will remain in effect during evenings, weekends and holida...
If you live or visit Winter Park, CO, you have probably seen logging operations to remove the dead pine beetle trees from our National Forests.  The US Forest Service has been planning to clear the dead trees along the Winter Park boundary by Vasquez Road and Arapahoe Road for some time and it now appears this project is imminent!  It's our duty as US citizens to make sure they do a good job!   Since the area to be cleared is wetlands and old-growth forest, it is hoped that great care will be taken in the dead tree removal.  Although this section of the forest has had a lot of beetle kill trees, it is full of young growth and many varied species of trees as well as flowers and grasses that are specific and unique to this area!  The key to this project is to make sure that they do not ju...

Chill Out!  Colorado Snow And Waterfalls!  Cool Colorado Scenery from June 2003. View from Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park, near Milner Pass. A second view from Trail Ridge Road.  This is the Alluvial Fan in Rocky Mountain National Park.  The Alluvial Fan was formed July 15th, 1982 at 5:30 am, when a dam burst and the contents of a Lawn Lake came down the hill (along with the huge boulders). This is one of the many beautiful waterfalls in Rocky Mountain National Park.  Make sure and visit Alberta Falls when you go to the park, it is not too strenuous and the scenery is beautiful.

DETAILS MAKE THE DIFFERENCE!  My husband and I are here in Fraser, Colorado at the Young Life Crooked Creek Camp.  This is like NO other camp experience that I have ever had.  This is a LUXURY resort like no other! From the moment we first drove up to the entrance, we were met by enthusiastic staff members who offered us a cool glass of lemonade and fresh fruit!  Wow, what a pleasant surprise and how wonderful such a small detail this was.  Weary from the travel and having this as our first encounter was meaningful. As we drove down the winding road leading us to the camping area, we could not help but notice the attention to details in EVERYTHING!  No matter where you look, things are meticulous and manicured.  Not one bit of trash, polished banisters, blooming flowers, and staff membe...

  The New Year is a time to review production and create new goals for 2010.  Here are two Grand County Real Estate Market Share Reports from 2008 and 2009.  Real Estate of Winter Park is the ONLY major company that actually INCREASED in just about every category - especially Total Sales and Sales Volume.  And most importantly, we're achieveing these results with HALF the number of agents as Century 21 Winter Park Real Estate and Coldwell Banker Mountain Properties, the two largest offices (by number of agents and multiple locations) in Grand County.

The new Winter Park based company, Powder Addiction, is officially opened for business!  My husband Jamie, aka "Ski Boss" runs the show so I, luckily, got to join him for his first tour yesterday.  It was fabulous! Powder Addiction's permitted area is on Jones pass which is accessed past Henderson mine on the south- east side of Berthoud Pass. The terrain is incredible. The snow cat transported us up to 12,500 feet.  We had fresh tracks every run.  I know that is hard to believe this year since we are all praying for snow but Jones pass actually had 8 inches new on Monday and a few inches on Tuesday.    Read more about activities in Jean's Backcountry skiing.

Warning! Danger! The Trees are Dying! This photo is of the Colorado River headwaters as it pours out of the Rocky Mountains, just south and west of the Rocky Mountain National Park. It was taken in the summer of 2005. It's a beautiful scene, but if you look closely, you notice the dead trees. The trees are Lodge Pole pine trees that have been infected with the Pine Bark Beetle. These little pests are destroying all the trees in the Rocky Mountains. And they are moving to destroy what's left. Very large swaths of the trees across the mountains are dead and brown. When the beetles are done with the trees, the very dead, dry branches hang down, as evidenced by the trees on the left in the foreground. They look so sad with the dead drooping branches, like they cried themselves to death. It'...

Just 6-12 months ago, getting a call back from a contractor to do a small job was almost as impossible as predicting Britney's Spears hair color. But, those days are gone....call any contractor and they are sure to get back to you within hours. There are some great contractors in the Winter Park/Grand County area and they are open for business again. Even better news -- the cost to get your property back to new is much more competitive. Both labor and materials are a better value. Contractors are competitively bidding jobs and scheduling work quickly. Many of the homes in the Winter Park and Grand County area are now 10-20+ years old. It is time for needed replacement & repair of several critical aspects of your home.....siding, roofing, decking, updating kitchens & baths ,etc.....  The...

So be sure and keep doors shut during this time of year until early winter.  Not only are there flying insects that will get into your home, there are also other creatures out there as well.  My wife left our sliding glass door to the back deck of our home slightly open for the cat to come in and out.  Then my daughter showed up late afternoon from college.  When she came in the home, she heard some rustling upstairs.  When she came around the corner, she saw the bear standing up stairs.  She immediately dropped her phone, then picked it up and ran outside and called me.  When I arrived, rather than going in the front door, I went around to the back deck.  I stepped up to the sliding glass door, stuck my head inside and called the bear to come out side.  It slowly walked out, looked up ...

Sometime in late 2009 we will be opening the new Fraser Valley Recreation Center - which will be a great amenity for our area. But, until then, use the many outdoor parks in the area. Hideaway Park is located right in the middle of town and is the largest Public Park offering large covered picnic areas, children's  playground and an awesome skate park. Wolf Park, also near the downtown area is the Winter Park "locals secret" and located in the Alpine Timbers Subdivision.  Covered picnic area, children's playground, large grass areas and tennis courts. Rendezvous offers a small but very nice park near the entrance to their development. This is accessible via the main road or by bike on the Fraser River trail. This park is a great little stop and gets little use. The Hi Country Haus Condo...
