An Overview Of The Colorado Real Estate Market

Colorado, like much of the U.S had a record year in 2021, and has seen some correction during the later end of 2022 with the increase of interest rates. These rate increases have caused both inventory and demand to cool. Values however, have continued to steadily increase, with the average home value increasing about 9% over the course of 2022.

Colorado has a track record of being one of the best long-term real estate investments in the U.S. Let us look at the home price appreciation trends recorded by Zillow over the past few years. Colorado’s strong economy gives buyers the ability to spend more on housing, consequently increasing real estate prices.

Encompassing a picturesque mountain valley nestled at the base of towering peaks, Snowmass Falls Ranch offers the ultimate combination of natural beauty, seclusion, and access to world-class amenities. This stunning 650  acre ranch is highlighted by lush meadows, tumbling streams, aspen groves, and forested hillsides, all set against a backdrop of snowcapped summits. Mount Daly dominates the view from the ranch headquarters, and a fortuitous bend in the valley brings additional peaks into view, including Clark Peak and Snowmass Mountain. It is an incredible setting for a multitude of activities - fishing, hunting, riding, hiking, ranching, entertaining, or just relaxing.    Snowmass Falls Ranch is the last privately-owned property in the upper Snowmass Creek valley. The access road ends at the front gate, and surrounding the ranch is the Maroon Bells - Snowmass Wilderness. This massive 181,535-acre roadless area has over 100 miles of foot and horseback trails and six of Colorado's peaks over 14,000 feet, accessible right from the property. This not only creates a gateway to an enormous wilderness playground, but a desirable end-of-the-road setting removed from development and other private landowners. By nature of being surrounded by pristine wilderness, the ranch feels much larger than its deeded acreage.    Given the unspoiled scenery and secluded setting, it is hard to believe that the ranch is only minutes from the top summer and winter resort destination in the world. Yet this private valley is located only 10 miles due west of Aspen and less than one mile west of the Snowmass ski slopes. Snowmass is the largest and most visited of the four Aspen/Snowmass ski resorts. Everything you may need or want, from the commercial airport to the finest shopping, dining, and nightlife, is within 30  minutes of the ranch. $50,000,000 Active

Consisting of 108,277  total acres (21,034  deeded acres), Three Springs Ranch is a historic cattle and big game hunting ranch notable for its large size, as well as its unique combination of multiple allocated hunting tags in a trophy unit where tags are difficult to draw. A common dilemma for hunting ranch buyers is whether to focus on areas with plentiful tags but few mature animals or go for a trophy unit that has quality bulls and bucks, but limited hunting opportunities, even for landowners. Fortunately, Three Springs Ranch offers the best of both   a high-quality unit with a private tag allocation achieved through Colorado's Ranching for Wildlife program. The result is a unique ranch with exceptional big game hunting complemented by a well-run livestock program and attractive western landscape. Additional features of the ranch include adjacency to the Dinosaur National Monument; an accredited source of the popular Allosaurus skeletal mount at the Denver Museum of Natural Science; a televised Bill Moyers' Journal documentary featuring the Ranch; and Native American petroglyphs. $15,500,000 Active

The Suckla Ranch is a true cowboy cattle operation ranch. Located in Disappointment Valley in Southwest Colorado, about 65 miles from Telluride, Colorado. The ranch is strategically placed throughout its 6,760± deeded acres and its 81,133± leased acres of forest service and BLM land, making for a highly successful operation. The ranch holds the sole permits on the forest service and BLM acreage, which is a rarity and asset to the ranch operations. The ranch’s vast acreage is made up of various topographies giving way to good winter and summer operating climates. It is approximately 15 miles from the winter camp in Disappointment Valley to the summer camp on the Glades, San Juan National Forest.  The cattle are trailed to summer and winter range but never leave the ranch property, so no trucking is ever needed. The operations of the ranch have been skillfully thought out, leading to 60 years of good ranching. The calves are processed on the winter range when they come off the summer permit then weighed on the ranch scales and shipped out or weaned. If you choose to wean the calves there is a weaning fence between the fields, creating less stress on the calves. The ranch can be run by two good hands and occasional day help making the cost per head much lower than most ranching operations.  The corral work is done at a central location from branding in the spring to weighing and shipping calves in the fall. The acreage includes some irrigated land.  The irrigated land surrounding the corrals is critical in this operation.  The water comes from Disappointment Creek and is good until early July, giving the ranch one cutting of hay, approximately 300 round bales, and good pasture for the fall. The ranch is comprised of enough acreage that you never have to feed cows as there is enough pasture to graze. Improvements are spread throughout the ranch and leased acreage.  The headquarters is in the valley, consisting of a 2,808± square foot ranch house, full RV hookup, 30 x 40 Quonset Shop, 40 x 50 workshop, 84 x 90 combination hay shed – equipment shed – calving stall – tack room, full set of working corrals, and a pond filled with a good working well.  At the working facilities for cattle and the hay fields, improvements in place are a 12 x 20 workers cabin/cook shack, certified set of scales, hydraulic chute, and calf table.  In the mountain section of the ranch is a line camp with a 12 x 20 cabin.  On the forest permit section of the ranch, where summer operations take place is a 1,326± square foot cabin, and the cabin is privately owned. Additionally, there is a bunkhouse, tack shed, and corrals. Other than the incredible cattle operation of the ranch that is already in place, the ranch offers other opportunities for growth and development.  Located in Game Management Units 70 & 711, the ranch has a multitude of wildlife including mule deer, elk, bears, mountain lions, antelope, mountain sheep, and turkey.  It also has bald eagles and wild horses for great viewing experiences. Giving way to other income operations such as hunting and recreational ventures. Recreational opportunities around the ranch are plentiful.  The Dolores River is nearby, Telluride is 65 miles away with festivals in the summer and world class skiing in the winter, Canyonlands National Park is not far for hours of hiking and ATVing. The sweet spot of the ranch is the very private setting, a cowboy way of life.  Call today for your private showing. $8,500,000 Active
