I love the change in seasons, especially the way fall brings golden aspen trees into view no matter which way I turn. It is such a gift to live here with all of God’s glory surrounding us!
Real estate sales remain strong with increases of 20% to 25% across all local communities except Snowmass Village (down 8%) due to the impacts of construction in and around the base village. If our local real estate market has one challenge, it is a lack of inventory, especially affordable homes. The good news is each community seems to be making headway addressing this problem, and progress is being made especially for teacher housing.
This past summer I made the move to RiverStone Real Estate. I am inspired to be a part of such a dynamic company focused on growth and serving the needs of our local community. Please stop by and see me in my new office which is right next door to the Village Smithy in downtown Carbondale.
I also recently launched my own website: www.frankmcswain.com. My site allows you to create customized searches for your ideal home in the location(s) of your choice. The best way to stay current on homes for sale is to register on frankmcswain.com and sign up for automated alerts so you are notified each time a home matching your search parameters hits the market.
Lastly, I am very proud to announce for every home sale I close acting either as buyer’s agent or seller’s agent, I will make a donation of $500.00 to Tom’s Door. This inspiring local charity was founded by my wife, Rosie, 16 years ago. Tom's Door provides emergency assistance to families in need from Rifle to Aspen. Most impressive is they have given over $1 million to needy families since their inception, and they have done this amazing work with an all-volunteer staff.
I would be honored to assist you, your friends and family members who are looking to buy or sell. I welcome the opportunity to serve you and share my passion for real estate and living in the Roaring Fork Valley.
