American Airline just announced they will begin non-stop (hopefully) service from Durango to Los Angeles LAX beginning Saturday June 2 and continuing each Saturday until August 22. The flight will leave LAX at 8:01 am and arrive in Durango at 11:42 am. The return flight will leave Durango at 12:30 pm and arrive LAX at 2:07 pm. The service will feature CRJ-700 jets that seat 70 people.

The new service will improve locals better access to western destinations; Hawaii, Asia and Australia. In addition it creates better access for in-bound travelers to the Four Corners Area and will be a boost to tourism. The Durango real estate market will benefit as second home and vacation home buyers take advantage of more convenient access to Durango.

Durango area residents and visitors will soon notice new, improved internet services. Free Wi-Fi access, provided by SkyWerx, is available along Main Avenue in downtown from 5th Street to 8th Street and will eventually be extended to 13th Street. The service is being provided in partnership with the City of Durango which owns the fiber optics.

CenturyLink, Skywerx, AlignTec and Brainstorm are all working to upgrade internet speed and access in our rural areas. SkyWerx and CenturyLink have both improved services in Forest Lakes, one of the La Plata County's largest subdivisions.

Utilizing a 2013 grant from the Federal Communication Commission, CenturyLink has already improved Internet Service in these areas:

*Florida Road (CR 240)

*Timberline Drive

*Edgemont Ranch and Highlands

*Durango Hills

*Forest Groves

*Aspen Trails

*Los Ranchitos

*Dalton Ranch

*James Ranch

*Electra Lake


*Three Springs

*Rafter J

In the past many of our clients who required high speed internet service were restricted in their selection of properties due to lack of adequate services. Times are changing and the Durango real estate market will be a beneficiary.

The 2016 Durango real estate market is off to a terrific start. Heavy snows and cold, cold weather have not slowed the number of buyer inquiries on our property listings. January 2014 and January 2015 both were extremely active. It appears January 2016 will be no different. Our RE/MAX Pinnacle brokers report that the main problem they're having is a lack of Durango area homes to present to potential buyers. We know that many sellers remove their homes from the market in the winter thinking it's a down time. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. The smart play is to be in the market when inventories are down and there a fewer competing properties.

Our advice to potential sellers is to get off the sidelines and into the game now!
