Keystone and Unincorporated Summit County Short Term Rental Regulations Update

If you haven’t been following the recent updates and meetings, unincorporated Summit County is proposing some new regulations on Short Term Vacation Rentals and has been in this process for over 6 months now. Members of SummitCove Lodging have been present at all of the meetings and speaking up for our team and in the interest of our homeowners.  Some of the proposed short-term rental regulations include occupancy limits, point of contact requirements, fees, permits and licensing.

 

SummitCove Property Management represented our homeowners and employees at the continuation of the Board of County Commissioners Meeting in regards to the proposed rental regulations in unincorporated Summit County on November 13th, 2018 at the county courthouse in Breckenridge. During this meeting, the update from the Summit County Staff Member, Kate Berg said they went back to research some specific items the board had requested from the previous October 23rd meeting.  They had researched occupancy and could not find any exemptions for children.

 

From the viewpoint we have in the audience it seems very clear that the BOCC is planning on proceeding with the implementation of these regulations in the near future. Our hopes are to help shape them enough to avoid having a major negative impact on the rentals in Keystone.  During the last meeting, we provided alternative language for occupancy, an alternative timeline for the rollout and other very useful changes that will help make this a better set of regulations for everyone. We believe that our effort to completely prevent these regulations in Keystone will fail, but that we will at least be able to reduce the hassle and expense of the application and permitting process for our homeowners in Keystone. We also hope to reduce any negative impacts on rental revenues that will incur if the occupancy requirements pass as proposed.

 

New Information from this meeting:

– This Proposal was tabled until the December 18th, 2018 meeting at a time and location TBD.

– Delayed until after the 2018/2019 Ski Season. Nothing will be required this ski season, which was clear by the proposed timeline.

– The fee schedule proposed is $150 per year or $350 per year if a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) is required.

– Cost the county estimated: $300,000.00:
– $80,000.00 to a software vendor in Utah
– $220,000.00 a year in payroll and employee expenses for 2.25 employees

 

The sticking points of the current proposal from our point of view: 

Occupancy

The currently proposed occupancy is more restrictive than what is in practice today in many resort condos.  Many Studios, 1 bed/  2 bath, 2 bed /3 bath properties, all properties over 6,000 sq feet and any that sleep more than 20 or properties with bunk rooms will likely exceed the current occupancy proposal requirements and will require a ‘CUP’ (Conditional Occupancy Permit) with no guarantee of permit approval. 

 

Timelines

The original proposed timeline was to begin the application process on January 15th and set the Filing Date of March 31st, with a proposed renewal date of September 1st.  This timeline was completely arbitrary and the county manager effectively told the commissioners that they can and should change this because it was just a bad plan. Obviously, a permitting program for short term rentals should not start during the busiest 75 day period of the year we have. It appears this was just an oversight of the county and they seem to be open to changing the timeline to use mud seasons to our advantage, as well as buy some additional time to get all of the details worked out. 

 

Property Transitions

Currently, the proposed regulations would not allow someone who is attempting to purchase a property to advertise their property for 30 days.  This is something that would hurt both real estate transactions and rental owners during the busy season when a large number of these properties turn over. 

During the BOCC meeting, the county staff was not clear as to how a land use permit would act, it appeared the initial position is the land use permit would be for the homeowner specifically.  When a property sold or transferred ownership, a new land use permit would be required.  However, for timeshares, the county staff recommended that the land use permit could go with the property, and the property would allow different owners and fractional owners to use the permit.  If you have 52 weekly owners you would need 52 permits, or maybe just 1.  The issues that came to light during the last meeting regarding the unknown impacts of this regulation were in the spotlight.  The county staff did not have clear answers and the fractional ownership managers were clearly frustrated on how little time and attention went into the regulations without consulting the professionals who have been working on this for a while.

 

 

If you had a permit and then sold your property in the middle of the permitted time period for vacation rentals, why wouldn’t your permit travel to a new owner for the remainder of the permitted time period?  Would the county offer refunds to homeowners for the unused portion of the permitted timeline or prorate the costs??

 

CUP’s

The language that is used is complex and it appears that the permitting process will require a significant number of properties to attempt to obtain a ‘Conditional Use Permit (CUP) Administrative 2’ which will cause both an increased expense and workload for the homeowners, HOA Managers, and the county staff. The sheer volume of the number of CUP’s required for the county to process was far past the estimates the county was thinking would be required.

 

SummitCove Property Management will continue to work for our homeowners to represent the views we believe to be both good neighbors in our community as well as protect the rights of our homeowners.  For more information feel free to read up on this matter on the Summit County Blog. We will continue to update you as we attend future meetings and hear more information.

We’re Growing! SummitCove Lodging Expands Offices at the Gateway Lodge in Keystone Resort

SummitCove Property Management in Keystone has recently expanded our offices!  We are located in an ideal spot for our guests and owners in the Gateway Mountain Lodge building in Keystone Resort.  Our Front Desk check-in office and guest services office has always been in this location, however, the opportunity arose to acquire the two spaces east of our check-in office.

 

For the 2018 / 2019 ski season and beyond we have relocated our housekeeping, maintenance, purchasing, and accounting offices into our new, expanded Gateway office space. Previously, our team was split up into multiple offices in Keystone. One of our three-year goals, that our management team set in the Spring of 2018 was to try to get everyone under one roof. This will allow us to provide better services to our homeowners and our rental guests, as well as our own team.  

 

We have plans for a remodel to happen in the spring so we can open up all three offices into one flowing functional workspace.  We have already moved in and have upgraded several of our offices to include a functioning sit and stand workspaces with electronic lifts that raise and lower heights, allowing team members to stand as desired during the workday.  This allows us to continue to focus on our team members long term health and wellness.

 

What does this move mean for our homeowners?  For our owners in the Keystone, you should expect to see faster responses regarding housekeeping and maintenance and accounting.  Now that we are all in the same office, we are able to more quickly interact and resolve any potential questions. We are able to brainstorm together more easily and offer better solutions on a daily basis.  Communication is now as easy as popping over to a colleagues desk instead of having to pick up the phone or head to another office.

 

What does this mean for our company as a whole?  We are able to reduce our overhead expenses on redundant utilities, as we no longer need to provide electric, water, and taxes in multiple offices.  We are able to reduce our Comcast bill which hosts our phone and internet services. We also have accomplished some of our long term goals focused on providing better service to our owners our guests and our teams.

 

For our team members, we are able to reduce the time spent communicating between offices.  We are also planning on a new break area to kick back, enjoy a meal, and recharge for helping our guests and owners.  The remodel will include improvements like a designated meeting and conference areas, as well as a guest luggage storage area and a larger front desk space.  

 

If you own a vacation rental property or second home in the Gateway Lodge, SummitCove Property Management is the ideal management choice! It’s so convenient for yourself and guests to check-in at the same building they are staying at.  Having an issue?  We are just steps away and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year.  Currently, we manage over 10+ properties in the Gateway Lodge and are accepting applications for new homeowners at Gateway and throughout Keystone Resort.  If you are interested in learning more about SummitCove Property Management, please contact us to set up a phone call or in-person appointment.  We are happy to provide you with a free rental revenue project and information about our services.  We now offer Second-Home Non-Rental Management, Rental By Owner and Hot Tub Services as well.

 

We are beyond excited for this new office expansion here in the Gateway Lodge.  We hope this will make our team stronger than ever and only continue to improve the services we offer to our guests and homeowners in the Keystone Resort area.  We hope you will stop by soon to check out our new space!

We thank you in advance for your efforts.

River Run Village at Keystone Resort is Getting a New Snowmelt System!

Exciting changes are coming to Keystone, with a new snowmelt system in River Run Village. The entire paved base area of River Run will soon stay clear and dry in the winter season thanks to the upcoming installation of a new snowmelt system that will heat the pavement and make the walkways safe for skiers and guests.  No more slipping in those ski boots! 

 

The new system will be more modern and provide for easier maintenance in the future. These improvements have just begun, having started on April 9th, the day after the mountain closed. Construction on the project will continue in phases throughout the summer and should be completely wrapped up by November, just in time for opening day 2018 at Keystone Ski Resort.

 

With the summer season attracting hikers, bikers, and nature lovers to Keystone, the gondola and shops at River Run will always remain accessible during construction through marked paths and designated sidewalks. During summer festivals such as the Wine and Jazz Festival on July 14th & 15th, construction will be stopped. Keystone Neighborhood Company anticipates the construction will have little to no impact on the festivals. 

 

The construction will take place in sections replacing the snowmelt systems from gondola to the entrance of River Run Village via Montezuma parking lot. Asphalt in areas will be replaced with pavers creating a stylish modern look in the village. Look forward to an updated and dry River Run Village for the 2018/2019 winter season!

What Happens When Your Guests Stay with Some Other Keystone Property Managers

Guests visit Keystone every day of the year…some times of the year more than others. What kind of an impression do you want your guests to have when they visit and stay in your property?  At SummitCove, working to make our guest experience downright amazing starts much earlier than you think and we work hard to make a lasting impression that results in a second visit from your guest.

On average, it takes guests 3 weeks to plan their vacation and decide where they want to stay.  This is a huge amount of time invested in researching prices, availability and features of each property.  For most people, a vacation is expensive, very personal, and people work hard to ensure their memories will be awesome for their family.

You only get one chance to make a first impression and your guests deserve the best when they arrive to your property.  If your first impression goes well, the chances of gaining a repeat guest skyrocket.   Does this picture give a good impression and great arrival experience?

Of course not.  The guest might get a confirmation from a property manager that simply takes them directly to their property instead and there is no need to pick up keys.  Sounds great in our “sharing economy” where we do everything electronically, but a guest interaction is missed when this happens and the opportunity to gain this guest as a repeat guest again falls. What kind of greeting message does the guest get when met with something like this?  

Welcome to Keystone…good luck if the lock code in your confirmation does not work or if you didn’t receive good directions to even get to the property!  We think it is important to greet incoming guests in-person, with a smile. It’s so much easier for the guest to check-in with a guest services agent who is ready to help after a long day’s travel, whether it’s to give directions or just to offer where they can grab a quick bite to eat. 

We at SummitCove Lodging understand the entire process required to gain a first-time guest and convert that guest into a repeat guest.  We have at least 14 touchpoints with guests from the time they visit our website and then ultimately depart from your property. Every one of those touch points makes the guest experience more personal and serves a specific purpose – to gain that guest back again as a repeat guest.

Why chance losing guests with a property manager who does not understand basic concepts in customer service?  SummitCove Lodging is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with someone here at our office ready to smile and greet your guests and make sure they have a wonderful and memorable stay.

The *True* Investment Value in a Keystone Vacation Rental

Are your curious about buying a property in the mountains?
Not ready to commit to buying but just doing research?
What resort is the best place?
How can I afford it?
It is really an investment?

There are times in a person’s life when they might ask these types of questions. Maybe you have toddlers and need to escape the hectic routines on weekends. Maybe you are a working professional who is tired of the traffic when driving to go skiing every weekend. Maybe you are retired and have always dreamed of a place in the mountains. Perhaps you want to share your excitement and experiences of skiing with your grandkids! Whatever category you fit into, you are not alone. There is something about the mountains that calls all of us. We see it in our own employees – travelling thousands of miles to live in the mountains of Colorado. The mountains are why we are here and it’s more than obvious when you see happy people all around you even in a summer thunderstorm downpour or the wildest winter blizzard!

So…you’re thinking of buying a place in the mountains. People come to us with all sorts of motivations and goals – less traffic, more family time, pure monetary investment, first tracks on a powder day, working from home – but with an incredible view, wanting to get the kids into the outdoors….the list goes on.

What IS the true investment value in owning a property in Keystone? While the numbers can be turned and twisted to make or break a case for buying a property, it takes some reflection to fully understand what the investment really is.

It’s easy for a Realtor to tell you, “Think of the investment in your family” if you have small kids. WOW…what a heart string to pull on! But – stop and think about that for a little while. How often do you get to spend time playing with your kids in the snow without a cell phone ringing? How often are you able to get away from work, homework, after-school activities, and all the busy stuff going on when you have a young family? What if you DID have the time to spend? What kind of relationships and experiences would you create for yourself and your kids?

Maybe your kids are away from home or you are retired. You worked hard all these years and now you have the time to spend doing what YOU want to do! Time in the mountains – doing the things you really enjoy – fishing, biking, hiking, skiing. Fresh air, no traffic…the possibilities are endless!

OK…come back to reality now.

Will a property in the mountain pay for itself? How can I afford it? That’s where SummitCove Property Management can help. We can offer the nuts and bolts horsepower to help you realize the *real* reason you want to buy a property in Keystone. We are the largest independent, best rated and award winning professional property management company in Keystone. We can generate the revenue from your property in order for you to realize the investment you are looking for in owning a property in Keystone…and make it completely worry-free in the process!

At SummitCove, we know why you come to the mountains. It’s definitely not to paint a wall or fix that drip in under the sink. But if you need that done, we have you covered so you can simply show up to that freshly painted wall, new faucet, and clean property. You come to the mountains to enjoy your time and invest in yourself, your family, and enjoy the outdoors with some serious comfort! At SummitCove Property Management, we fully understand this concept and are prepared to make your investment- whatever it might be for you personally, a complete reality.

Call us today even if you are just thinking about a property in Keystone Ski Resort. We have 15 years of experience to help you make the best decision possible.  We can offer you advice on which building suits your needs, provide rental revenue projections and more to help you move forward and find something that will work for you. Do your homework with us.
