Your best bet is going to be to call the city. They may be an HOA community but it might be like some cities where they HOA fee is included in your taxes and they mainly just watch they property colors and property maintenance. But again best best is to call them and double check. ... more

There are 4 different condo/townhome complexes in downtown proper of Pagosa Springs. They consist of Riverwalk Townhomes, Riverwalk Condos, Cobblestone Townhomes and River's Edge Townhomes. Cobblestone is new and still under construction. Their HOA fees are as yet undetermined. They are the only single level units. The other units are multi-level. Some of the River's Edge units have elevators, some do not.
All the fees at the other units are currently $200/mth. What you have to consider is what the HOA covers and how much the true fee is if you reduce the HOA fees by those expenses. As an example, RIverwalk condos HOA fee covers water, sewer, exterior maintenance, insurance and snow removal. Water and sewer would run you $60-70/mth, snow removal and summer gardening/maintenance in a typical year $50-100/mth, exterior/common area insurance $12-24/mth. If you owned a single family home you would have those monthly expenses on going as well. There is not a "paid administrator" at Riverwalk condos or townhomes. The HOA is an owner run board. I believe this is the case at River's Edge as well. Cobblestone is too new to know what exactly will take place. Owners can vote for outside management or can determine if they want to run their own HOA. The tricky part of Cobblestone is the fees are as yet undetermined. They are however beautiful units that border the park and the river. Some would feel the park is a negative, some would see it as a positive. I would welcome the park as I still have kids at home and love the small trail system around the park. However it is a fairly busy park so for some that may not be appealing.
If you have other questions I can answer, fell free to reach me via e-mail at or my office number is 970-946-7347. You can also see our website at .

Yes this lot is still available. It is listed by our company, The Pagosa Source, 970-264-7000. The lot is in a good location with nice views and a small lake/pond in the open space adjacent. The challenge with the lot is that the sewer line is in, however the water line is a couple lots away. This would add an additional approximate cost of $3000-$5000 at the time of building. The lot is bargain priced to accommodate this expense. Let me know if you have further questions about this or other lots in our area and I would be happy to help ... more

Renting a home while it is on the market for sale can be frustrating. Perhaps you may want to suggest a showing window that works best for you with the listing agent. Sure there will be buyers who will want preview your home during other times, and adjustments will need to be made. By talking with the listing agent (or relaying through the owner), you will make your frustrations known and perhaps have a better experience. Listing agents can also indicate showing time preferences and limitations within the listing for other real estate agents to see. Depending on what price point your home is listed, you may even experience more showings than average. As real estate agents, we also understand your frustrations and value your efforts making the home available for showings!

Best Pagosa regards,

I actually reported to Trulia this property had been sold months ago and requested Trulia to mark accordingly, as it is not in the best interest of prospective buyers to inquire about a property that has been sold for months! It appears Trulia was too busy to respond to my request. With that said, another great value to actually work with an agent, as we have direct access to the MLS and can relay the actual property status. Keep in mind, Internet home shopping is convenient, but not all that up to date. You'll find many times properties are "under contract" (and will show as active until they are closed) or even sold before the internet sites update their information. It is the nature of the internet beast.

It is my understanding that you do not have to have central heat - it depends on where the property is located. i just showed this yesterday and it is a very nice home . the heat onteh main floor is the fireplace which is on a thermastat and there is some thermastat in the master bath...not sure what that operates. The downstairs is wood burning fireplace - I called American Family Insurance for you and they say they would not be able to insure due to location / trees in area, however some of the other insurance companies may. Now as far as lending - they require comps that have the same type of heat...could be a challenge but not out of the question - it is Pagosa ... .:-)
If you are in the area, I am happy to show you this and several others that might be of interest

Henry, I have been fortunate to have been able to fish the lake many times in the past. It once operated as a private fish hatchery and has always had a very good population of trout and some exceptionally large ones as well. It is a beautiful part of the world and is spring and stream fed, there is a beautiful waterfall behind the house that feeds the lake, the stream and plunge pool from the waterfall is always loaded with fry and small trout.

Mike is absolutely right about this being a private lake and no HOA involved. It is an extremely lucky person who gets to fish this little slice of paradise.

There are mostly rainbow and brown trout. Williams Creek Recreation area is awesome too! Most anglers in the area practice "catch and release". Please be aware there are usually "limits" to the amount of trout "kept". When here, visit the local angler shops- they will be of great help - from the best flies catching a bite to equipment! you can easily fish from just across the Hot springs, the river entrance of town and throughout town. There is also the ponds behind Ski & Bow Rack which are very children and handicap friendly!

Please take a moment to check out It is a fantastic web site for anglers with lots of angler information. The Pagosa Quality Fishing Project is a group of volunteers who help stock the San Juan River which runs throughout Pagosa. I have been doing their PR and marketing for the last few years. We are always looking for volunteer members to help participate in this non-profit organization as well as physically help the fish stockings (which are much fun!). Of course if you can not participate, donations are gladly accepted to this worthwhile project. PQFP recently stocked the San Juan River and plans a few more stockings this summer! If you would like to help with a stocking, shoot me an email.
Happy fishing!
