Thank you for visiting Snow Capped Property Management where our mission is to help reach your rental goals, together.
FOR OWNERS - you are likely a new property owner (congratulations!) looking to rent out for the first time or an owner/landlord looking to outsource your property management responsibilities. Wherever you are in your journey we are happy you stopped by and we look forward to sharing what services we can offer. Please review our list of Services, About Us, and FAQs and when you are ready give us a call to discuss how best we can help reach your goals.
FOR RENTERS - we understand that this is an unprecedented time in the housing market, even to rent! We have worked with many homeowners to switch their short term rental properties to Seasonal or Long term and have listed them in the Available Properties section below. Also, keep an eye out for the next availability dates under Rented Properties that would become available after their lease expires.
We continue to work with various companies and organizations, including Work In Grand being the latest, to promote, streamline, and provide housing that we have available.
Lastly, don't forget to check out the A Lil' About Us tab as well to learn more about us, what we are working on, and see a list of our valued Partners.
Long term rental options are typically on a 12 month lease and occupied by locals as their primary residence. This provides your property with the most standard of use. Has the least amount of moving parts and dependencies for generating rental income. LTRs are a great way to start your venture and helps contribute toward available housing for the community.
Property is typically unfurnished. Tenants usually takeover all utilities, except for water. If the property has an HOA that includes utilities then you can bake some or all of the HOA expenses into the rental amount.
LTRs are typically lower in monthly rents (though also offset by the fact that the property is rented year-round through the off seasons; Apr-May and Oct-Nov months) and provide limited owner's use while is tenant occupied.
This 4-6 month rental option is common in the mountains over the true summer (Jun-Sept) and winter (Dec-Apr) seasons. Consider this a good in-between option between LTRs and STRs. You earn higher rental income over LTRs with the periodic owner's use of the property during the off seasons. Keep in mind that due to the additional tenant turnovers you do run the risk of vacancies periods between tenants.
The tenant demographics for this category are typically from the Denver metro areas looking for a temporary second home to vacation. Often a family who wants to have their kids join the ski program in the winter or outdoor enthusiasts wanting to enjoy the mountain summer. It's not uncommon for multiple families to share the place either. And because of these reasons the property is typically furnished and rent includes all utilities for everyone's convenience.
STRs typically generate the highest gross revenue. It also offers owners the most flexibility to use the property.
Similar to Seasonal rentals the property is fully furnished and all utilities covered by the owner. A short term license and separate insurance is required for this option.
STRs are the most complex rental type to manage. With all the moving parts to rely on to build and maintain a successful STR property; guests services, noise complaints, higher standard of maintenance and availability, cleaners and repair logistics, 24x7 on call demands, and expectation are just a few key factors to plan around. But if well prepared and executed correctly, with the right partners and plan in place, this option can be very lucrative .

Our management service fee starts with the strategic marketing of your property. It helps find and vet THE RIGHT tenants. We are the tenant's main point of contact so you don't get those late night calls or have to deal with issues that come up. It keeps your property operational and includes executing quick repairs ourselves, reordering of supplies, or coordinating with third party providers/services (i.e. hot tub cleaning, snow removal, cleaners, pest control, etc.)
We do not charge for additional time or up-charge on products for tasks that can be done within a reasonable amount of time; the rule of thumb is anything less than 30 minutes. Though from time to time there will be larger needs that warrant services above and beyond the scope of standard operating procedure, which will be charged at $60/hour should you want us to assist.
All tenants go through a 3rd party screening process that include credit, background, social security, employment, and reference checks. We meet them in person to make sure what's on paper matches the person and rely on good old fashion gut instincts. We then pass along our recommended candidates to you, the owner, for final approval and selection.
In addition to the thorough vetting process we require tenants to have Renter's Insurance on top of owner's required Insurance. We maintain an "open door" policy with tenants so they feel comfortable bringing up issues to us at the onset to prevent larger issues down the road. We make on-site check ups to change out furnace filters, light bulbs, winterize, regular maintenance, etc. to get our eyes on the property and make sure things are going as smoothly as possible.
We cannot. Normal wear and tear and accidents are part of this business. We follow industry best practices and standards and do our best to limit and mitigate the potential of issues by vetting out tenants based on the mentioned screening process and results, collecting a reasonable security deposit for accidental damages, requiring of Renter's insurance, maintaining open-door policy, regular check-ups as allowed, and any new tips/tricks we discover along the way. But like any business there are risks.
Similar to wear and tear it's impossible to entirely eliminate this risk. However, we take several steps to mitigate the issue as best we can:
1. we follow the County's noise ordinance requirements.
2. we require owners to have a noise monitor in place to alert us when noise levels exceed acceptable levels per noise ordinance mentioned above.
3. we communicate our expectations to our guests before they check-in, "Quiet hours are from 10pm to 8am. Please be respectful to our neighbors, some of which live in the community full-time and have young children. $100 fine per offense".
4. we share our contacts with the neighbors so they have a direct line of contact should anything require attention.
Yes, a contract will be executed between Homeowner and Snow Capped. This contract outlines the duties and responsibilities of both parties, the requirements for the property, and fees.
