East Ranch Real Estate
Frequently Asked Questions
To determine whether owners in East Ranch are permitted to short-term rent their properties, there is generally a two-part analysis:
- Do the East Ranch homeowners' association and governing documents allow owners to short-term rent? Yes. There is no provision in the bylaws, covenants or other governing documents for East Ranch that would prevent owners from short-term renting their units.
- Does the local governmental authority currently allow a property owner to obtain a new East Ranch short-term rental license? Yes. East Ranch is located in unincorporated Summit County and is therefore subject to the jurisdiction of the Summit County Board of County Commissioners (“BoCC”). Summit County defines a short-term rental as any residential dwelling unit or room therein that is rented for periods of less than 30 consecutive days. On September 14, 2021, BoCC passed a temporary 90-day moratorium on the issuance of new short-term rental licenses. However, because Keystone is predominantly a resort community serving visitors to Summit County, BoCC created an exemption to the short-term rental moratorium for all properties located in the Keystone area. Accordingly, the East Ranch real estate community and other Keystone property subdivisions all remain unaffected by the short-term rental moratorium in Summit County. New property owners in East Ranch may continue to apply for and receive short-term rental licenses.
In sum, the East Ranch homeowners association does not preclude owners from short-term renting their properties. Furthermore, the short-term rental moratorium does not apply to East Ranch property owners; so, Summit County will continue to grant new short-term rental licenses to homes located in East Ranch.
East Ranch homeowners' association dues include the following expenses:
- Common area maintenance
- Common area management
- Common insurance
- Common taxes
- Snow removal
- Trash pickup
A real estate transfer tax is a payment to a governmental entity, which is sometimes made when a real estate transaction occurs. Real estate transfer tax is generally calculated as a small percentage of the total purchase price agreed on by the parties to a real estate transaction. Typically, we find in Summit County that the percentage is either 0%, 1%, 1,5% or 2% of the gross purchase price in section 4 of the the standard real estate contract. In Summit County, transfer tax funds help to pay for a variety of different community improvements. Whether the buyer or seller pays transfer tax is negotiable as part of each real estate transaction.
In East Ranch, there is 0% transfer tax. That means neither seller nor buyer will have to potentially pay transfer tax as part of a property sale in East Ranch!
The governing documents for the East Ranch homeowners' association permit property owners to have pets within their properties. And, long-term renters or short-term renters are also allowed to keep pets in properties in the East Ranch subdivision.
