The Arkansas River is Coming up, As is the Salida Real Estate Market

The river is coming up, as is the Salida real estate market. Last Saturday the Arkansas River was running 1,000 cfs through Brown’s Canyon and in spite of borderline temperatures we took the opportunity to float from Stone Bridge to Salida East. The trip was absolutely lovely, save for this newcomer, who left the keys to her truck, located at the take-out, in the truck located at the put-in. Ooops! It took a little figuring, a little extra help, and a small detour, but we had the shuttle sorted before we ever laid eyes on the boat ramp at Salida East.

The Salida real estate market is not unlike the Arkansas River this time of year. It’s coming up, but slowly. While the snow pack is over 100% in the high mountain areas, we haven’t seen much of the white stuff down low this year, and that means the river, like the real estate market, is also coming up with a little uncertainty. Temperatures are still a little low, but higher than they have been in what seems like eons. Clients are ready to buy, but the ways in which lending has tightened up means things might take a little extra figuring, require extra help or encounter a detour or two. Regardless, what had first appeared to be mere lateral movement in the market now seems to be a definite step towards forward momentum.
