“I see 2015 as a year of housing opportunity,” secretary of housing and urban development Julian Castro says in an interview with CNN Money’s Christine Romans. One reason for this is that while interest rates have remained low, rent is on the rise. That’s not all. Did you happen to notice the highest point on that graphic with rising rents?

Rents on the Rise

Often, renters do not even see home ownership as an option.  Many believe owning a home will be too expensive, that they’ll never qualify for a loan or that they may not live somewhere “long enough” to want to build equity in a home over paying a landlord.

In today’s market, it makes sense to weigh your options. The Rocky Mountain Home Team can help you decide if home ownership is right for you and, if it is, assist you in every step of the transition from renter to homeowner.

What to Do in the Vail Valley

The Alice’s Restaurant 50th Anniversary Tour comes to Beaver Creek’s Vilar Performing Arts Center on Saturday! More than “just” a concert by American music legend Arlo Guthrie, the show is a multi-media presentation featuring previously unseen images from the Guthrie Archives.
