It seems the changes to what is allowed or not is constant. Coronavirus is keeping us on our toes and adaptable. The rules are either going to change, just changed or have been clarified giving us more direction. It is difficult to keep up, especially for those that don't live in Colorado and are looking to come either for a visit or to stay in their second homes.
Masks are currently required everywhere in Summit County. If you are in a store or outdoors where you may not be able to maintain your social distancing, you should be wearing a mask. The sidewalks on Main Street in Frisco are painted with masks required signs.
Skiing & Riding
Ski areas are opening as we head into ski season. Each resort has their own rules to limit occupancy, contact & hopefully the spread. All require advance reservations of some sort so you have to plan ahead. There is no spur of the moment ski days this season. Check the ski area website for specifics and plan ahead. If you are renting while you are here, see if the ski area you plan to visit gives preferential treatment to those staying at the resort. There are plenty of other activities to do if you cannot get on the mountain every day. The Dillon Ice Castle will be back this winter and the Frisco Peninsula will be open for tubing, cross country skiing and sledding. There are multiple nordic centers and tons of trails to snowshoe. Fat bikes will likely be in high demand for that winter trail ride. Unfortunately, festivals and events won't be happening this winter. Outdoor dining was a fun alternative this summer so I'm sure there will be creative, new alternatives that pop up ensuring we all can enjoy Summit County this winter.
Real Estate activities haven't changed much throughout the pandemic. Initially our rules were very tight but after the initial wave, requirements loosened up a somewhat and have been consistent since. Currently any contact with others or the property of others, a.k.a homes, require masks, gloves, hand sanitizing and physical distancing for everyone and even property disinfecting. Showings are limited to the agent plus two others and those not in the same household must come in their own vehicles. Open houses are allowed but with occupancy rules. Real estate activity in the county has been high this summer. August sales were up 34% over 2019, and September sales were up a whopping 78% over September 2019. October was even better. Inventory levels are extremely low and we are seeing multiple offers on some properties.
Of course, we want to continue to provide services to interested buyers and sellers during the pandemic. However, we are not willing to put anyone at risk and are committed to honoring all safety recommendations. We are confident we can do that with the current orders in place. Please contact us if you have further questions or concerns. As always, your needs are our priority.
