Wondering how to navigate the current real estate landscape in Telluride should not be. Telluride Properties is here for you, and we remain committed to providing you with the necessary tools and proactive guidance required to make informed decisions in the pursuit of your goals.

    Please find some frequently asked questions below …


    Are you open for business?

    YES! As of May 4th, our office locations will re-open – however, for the safety of our team and community, many of us will continue to work from home. Our team of brokers are available to you at anytime via phone, email, or virtual meetings.

    How can I tour homes right now?

    Per state and county orders, as of May 2nd, in-person showings/tours may be conducted with San Miguel County residents and second-homeowners (who have complied with a 14-day quarantine). We have procedures in place & equipment ready to keep you as safe as possible.

    If you live outside the county, the following virtual options are available to you …

    Virtual 3-D Tours give a comprehensive sense of the layout of a home or condo. Select “virtual tour” under popular features in your home search settings.

    Virtual Showings are highly personalized, we can answer your questions and point out the home’s attributes while we walk through the property together via FaceTime. Contact us to schedule a virtual showing.

    Are you selling properties right now?

    YES! People are still buying and selling real estate in Telluride. Real estate transactions were mostly digital even before now, but in light of current conditions, it is now possible for us to manage everything virtually – from showings and contracts to due diligence and new virtual closings.

    We can also recommend lawyers to provide special coronavirus clauses and lenders that are able to close loans right now.

    How can I stay up on the market?

    New properties are continuing to come to the market. You don’t need to miss out just because you can’t be here. Our website can email you alerts for new listings, price reductions, and more.

    And when you’re ready, our brokers are standing by to answer all the questions your computer can’t.

    Can I book a vacation rental?

    Visitors and vacation rentals are still not allowed in San Miguel County, at least through May 31.

    We can help you book a summer rental for June 1 or later, with the caveat that it may need to be cancelled or postponed to comply with any new county health orders.

    What’s life like in Telluride right now?

    To be completely honest, we’ve all never felt so grateful to live where we do. Retreating to our wide-open spaces for hikes and skiing has kept us healthy, mentally and physically. We have been humbled by the collective support and action of our community. The vigor of our local medical professionals in preventing the spread of COVID-19, while still attending to our everyday health needs, has been nothing short of incredible. Our small town businesses have been a lifeline for food and supplies – supporting them so they can survive is top of everyone’s mind.

    The Telluride Daily Planet newspaper has been a diligent one-stop source for ongoing information, check it out here.

    How can I monitor COVID-19 cases and health orders in Telluride?

    San Miguel County has created a visual dashboard that shows information on the number of cases locally and regionally. You can stay up-to-speed with current health orders on their site.

    The Telluride Medical Center also has some great resources and information on their site about COVID-19 testing and how the medical staff are managing these cases, as well as the everyday health of residents.


    We are standing by to answer your questions and provide any insight we can at this time. We look forward to seeing you in Telluride soon.
