Foreclosures:  January through June 2010 we had 35 properties make it through the foreclosure process.  2011 to date, we have 86 properties.  Notices of Election and Demand (NED) are down over 9% so we expect our foreclosures to drop soon.  This information is provided by Stewart Title.

In other Breck news:  Breck and Keystone skier visits were up for the 2010/2011 ski season, and Colorado had a record year for tourism in 2010.  There is huge optimism for 2011, both locally and across the state.  A-Basin just finished up their ski season over the 4th of July weekend.  What a year for snow!

I hope you are enjoying all of the festivities that Summit County has to offer.  The Vail farmer’s market is always worth the drive if you are looking for something to do on a Sunday.  The wildflowers are spectacular this year because of all the snowfall (and rainfall!).  It looks like the 10,000 ft elevation range is peaking now so the higher levels should be a week or 2 behind.
