What is a smart home? Essentially, a “smart home” is a residence equipped with devices and systems that make your life easier. These devices and systems automate tasks normally managed by humans, like lighting, home security, sounds systems, blinds, locks, home theater, thermostats, etc. Smart home automation uses internet-connected systems and devices that are managed through one main pilot, like a tablet or a smartphone. While the concept isn't new, the evolution of smart home technology is rapidly growing and changing. While ease and comfort are obvious incentives to converting your home into a smart home, there are several features that benefit the environment, upgrade security, make your space more entertaining, and enhance the home’s value.

With a new year underway, many of the interior design trends that have had a strong footprint in the Roaring Fork Valley in the recent past — think mountain modern and monochromatic grey on grey palettes — are already on their way out.
For the past decade or so, the Aspen Snowmass real estate market has been dominated by two prevailing architecture styles: the traditional mountain look, or on the opposite extreme, contemporary. But according to one of our top-producing agents Andrew Ernemann, the needle has tipped so far in the direction of contemporary, that buyers are now looking for a mix of both — what he calls “The New Mountain Contemporary.”
Surrounded by the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains, residents of the Roaring Fork Valley are particularly in tune with the drastic effects carbon-fueled transportation has on the earth. But how can we make environmentally-conscious transportation even easier on our residents? Aspen Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty’s sponsorship of the WE-cycle Ride Share Program is here to save the day.
In a place tucked into one of the most majestic pockets of the world—surrounded by natural beauty, national forest land and protected open space—living green is the way of life. With renewable energy roots dating back to the 1980s when the city built the Maroon Creek and Ruedi hydroelectric plants, Aspen is undoubtedly a model citizen in how communities can reduce the carbon footprint of its residents.
