Affordable Homes for Sale Cedaredge Estates Real Estate Information Oct 2015Cedaredge Estates is a wonderful place to call home. On one side the neighborhood backs up to pasture land for that country feel, and on the other side  it's bordered by Surface Creek. There is no thru traffic. Most of the homes are ranch style with 3 bedrooms. There are a few bi level floor plans and two bedroom homes. Over the last year real estate sales have been slow in Cedaredge Estates. That's mainly because there haven't been many properties on the market. Here's a look at the current inventory: There are two active listings.  Prices range from $127,500 to $160,000. One home has sold since the first of the year. The selling price is $124,898. This is a small one bedroom home with a shop area and it backs ...

The Worst Garden Pest You Can Have in CedaredgeWhen visitors come to Cedaredge they love watching the many, many deer that hang out around town. The deer are everywhere. They cross the streets and don't pay attention to the crosswalks. They expect you stop for them. I usually do because I'm a nice person that way. The deer taunt the dogs and make them bark. They make you do sudden stops on the highway which is in no one's best interest. They also eat your garden. If you want it to grow...you have to fence them out. I have an six foot tall fence all the way around my veggie garden. The deer don't just eat veggie plants. They go after all kinds of plants, shrubs and trees. There are plants that will grow here which the deer don't like. Even if they won't eat them, I have had the deer pull...

Freaky Friday Photo...Alien Spacecraft Over CedaredgeThis picture was taken two nights ago on Main Street. It was quite the fall like night with the wind blowing and distant lightning flashing all around us. Really it was kind of like a scene out of a scary Halloween movie. My imagination went a look nuts. I was imagining the cloud was a spaceship looking for a place to land. I grabbed my camera and shot this photo. We all noticed the cloud and how it was lit up in the dark sky. I guess everything must have been aligned just right, and the cloud picked up a reflection of the moon. It was certainly an interesting night on Main Street. Everyone, including the dogs, seemed to be charged up from the incoming storm. I've lived on Colorado's Western Slope for over 25 years. I love this area a...

Serendipity Sunday...Full Moon Over Cedaredge, COI was with some friends last night for a birthday party when we all noticed the full moon coming up over Cedar Mesa. This was the perfect opportunity for me to try out my new camera. It was a super moon, and this means that the moon is closest to the earth.Next month the full moon will be extra special as it's also a super moon and there will be a lunar eclipse. That will happen on September 27th. It will be visible from most of North America with the best full eclipse viewing happening in the eastern half of the country. I'll need to get a tripod for next month's event. That will surely be something I want to take pictures of. I didn't use a tripod for these pictures. I braced myself up against a deck to try to hold steady. It worked out...

Serendipity Sunday...Summer's BountyOne of my hobbies is gardening. Just because I live in the mountains doesn't mean I can't grow a good veggie and herb garden. I do and have been for 20 years. The elevation of Cedaredge, CO is 6200 feet above sea level. That means that our nights are already starting to get cooler and we get a later start to the gardening season than those people in lower elevations. You have to adapt to your conditions. In fact the region is known for some great produce like Palisade Peaches and Olathe Sweet Corn (which is patented). Wineries are cropping up all over and the vineyards along with them. There are many wonderful fruit and veggie stands along our roadsides. Organic gardening is very popular, and it's also easy to find organic produce. The picture shows m...

What's My West Ador Cedaredge, CO Home WorthReal Estate activity is slow in West Ador. That's mainly due to the lack of inventory. Low inventory has been the story for the last two years. In 2014 there were several MLS recorded sales, but these were mainly bank owned homes. The neighborhood appears to have lost the bank own inventory, and that's good. Here's a look at the real estate market so far this year: There is one active listing priced at $229,000. One MLS reported sale in the neighborhood at $145,000.  With so little sales activity you might wonder how to determine what your West Ador home is worth. I can help you with that. We branch out to other neighborhoods with homes of similar styles, sizes and year built as yours. We compare the amenities of each home and look at the sale...

You Can Lead a Horse to the Bar and Hopefully He'll Lead You Home The wild west spirit is still alive in some parts of Colorado. This photo falls into the category of you know you live in a rural area when...you see horses parked on Main Street. I think the riders went for an evening ride, and stopped at 4Bs Brewpub for a treat. The horses took it all in stride. It did seem like a beautiful night for a ride. Seeing horses tied out on Main Street isn't as common a sight as it use to be. What's really entertaining is when you get the ranchers herding sheep or cows down the highway. The cows and sheep don't stop for a red traffic light, either. They continue to push on through. I love seeing the expressions on the visitors' faces when they see this happen. By the way, Cedaredge only has on...

Serendipity Sunday...Slowing Down Fast Moving WaterToday I had some time to play with my new camera. For those of you that haven't been following the story, several Active Rain members have gotten a Canon SX50. This camera has some amazing features like the 1200mm zoom. The picture quality is excellent, too. Water shots were my objective today, and learning to use the shutter and aperture priority feature. I accomplished both. I took Lucky with me, and we walked the Surface Creek Trail. This was also an opportunity for me to work on Lucky's sit/stay commands. He's doing pretty well, but my photography skills are advancing a bit quicker than he is with staying. In the first picture you see how any camera would see this shot in automatic mode. I wanted to give the fast moving water the ap...

Foto Friday....You're Finally HomeI've been out of town for a few days. After about the first day, I really start to miss the kids. I know they miss me, too. My kids are two cats and Lucky Dog. Aslan and Chloe were under the good care of a friend of mine. She goes way overboard with them when I'm not here. She also sends me pictures of them, and a little message...something like, "We miss you", or "Hurry home".Lucky, though, gets to go to the kennel. He really does like it. Happy Tails has a fenced  one acre where the dogs and can run and play together. For him that's better than going to the park. Lucky is very social and loves other animals. When I showed up today, he must have heard me. I could hear him whining from the backroom.  When Kathi, the kennel keeper, opened the door to let...
