Looking for a deal on the highest quality luxury ski-in condo Steamboat has to offer? You’ll want to watch the progress on One Steamboat Place which is currently making news. Steamboat Today reports:
$100 million in unpaid construction debt at One Steamboat Place is two weeks away, and the deadline has passed for the original investors to cure or redeem the matter.
The article further states that
One Steamboat Place has been vibrant this winter even with the overlying challenge we’ve been dealing with.
I can echo that comment as I have several clients with interest in fractional and full ownership at One Steamboat Place. Currently there are no active listings on the Steamboat Springs MLS. I believe the developers of One Steamboat Place is having trouble negotiating their debt because there are 7 construction lenders, some who jumped into the hype of our bustling market in 2006-07 without any experience in resort properties, and are now wondering what they should do. If the 2 equity investors and 7 construction lenders could all see eye-to-eye and had allowed the sales team to make some deals as the market soured, they wouldn’t be in this position. More than a year ago I presented an offer to them for a 3-bedroom whole ownership. The developer would have liked to make the deal, but per the sales representative for Timber Resorts, the banks were not allowing the discount. This has been a typical process since the start of the national real estate decline several year ago; why can’t they learn from others’ past experience? Wildhorse lenders should take note! Buyers out there are looking for deals - take a cut out of the boat’s bottom without puncturing the hull and the boat still floats! Steamboat’s luxury development Highmark had several distressed or bank-owned listings all of which have sold. Buyers with cash who have been watching our market for the past 2 years are jumping at the opportunity to scoop up the deals as soon as they hit the market. I’m currently in negotiations on 2 bank-owned properties and both are in multiple offer situations. Since January I’ve presented over 10 offers for buyers on various bank owned properties and all have either sold or are under contract. I’ll continue to keep an eye on One Steamboat Place.

Ok… the good news first - Champagne Powder® snow is on order along with the usual turkey and trimmings! Steamboat will be serving up a full plate of fun with 5 lifts, approximately 926 acres and 66 trails, including much of its legendary tree-skiing terrain in Shadows and Closet. For just $30, Steamboat will dish out a lift ticket on opening day, Wednesday November 24th, and donate all proceeds to benefit the local youths in the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club. We haven’t seen early season conditions like these since 1996/97 winter. A series of storms have dumped nearly 4-1/2 feet of snow this month and 6 feet of snow since October 23rd at Thunderhead, the resort’s mid-mountain location at 9,080 feet. Steamboat is currently reporting a remarkable 52-inch base at the summit, the largest ever seen for an opening day. And snow will continue to accumulate starting Sunday and lasting till the opening on Wednesday. Meteorologists are calling for a La Niña weather cycle this winter and Steamboat often does very well during the stronger events. So far so good! Mike at SnowAlarm and I decided to hike to Hurricane this past week to send you a taste of what’s on tap for this winter - powder skiing!
