Frequently Asked Questions

Can new property owners in Expedition Station conduct short-term rentals?

To determine whether owners in Expedition Station are permitted to short-term rent their properties, there is generally a two-part analysis:

  1. Do the Expedition Station 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 Expedition Station that would prevent owners from short-term renting their units. 
  2. Does the local governmental authority currently allow a property owner to obtain a new Expedition Station short-term rental license?  Yes.  Expedition Station 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 Expedition Station real estate community and other Keystone property subdivisions all remain unaffected by the short-term rental moratorium in Summit County.  New property owners in Expedition Station may continue to apply for and receive short-term rental licenses.

In sum, the Expedition Station homeowners association does not preclude owners from short-term renting their properties.  Furthermore, the short-term rental moratorium does not apply to Expedition Station property owners; so, Summit County will continue to grant new short-term rental licenses to homes located in Expedition Station.

What expenses are covered as part of Expedition Station homeowners' association dues?

Expedition Station homeowners' association dues include the following expenses:

  • Basic cable tv
  • Common area maintenance
  • Common area management
  • Common insurance
  • Common taxes
  • Electricity
  • Gas
  • Heat
  • Snow removal
  • Trash pickup
  • Wi-fi internet access
  • Water/sewer fees

In sum, the homeowners' association dues in Expedition Station generally cover almost all monthly expenses that owners routinely pay to own a Summit County property.  From that standpoint, Expedition Station owners do not have to set up an account with Xcel Energy to pay utilities.  And, if Expedition Station owners are satisfied with basic tv channels and shared WiFi internet access, there is also no need to potentially set up an account with Xfinity or another cable/satellite provider.

Is transfer tax owed when a Expedition Station property is bought or sold?

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 Colorado 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 Expedition Station, there is a 2% transfer tax.  Dependent on contractual negotiation between the parties, either the seller or buyer will have to potentially pay 2% of the total purchase price at closing as part of a property sale in Expedition Station.  Or, the parties to a Expedition Station transaction could negotiate to split the 2% transfer tax.

Are pets allowed in Expedition Station?

The governing documents for the Expedition Station homeowners' association do not permit pets within the complex  As a result, the Expedition Station homeowners' association does not allow owners, long-term renters or short-term renters to have pets anywhere within properties located in the Expedition Station subdivision.
