Tom Cruise’s Telluride, Colorado, estate—which is full of sports-oriented amenities befitting an action star—is returning to market for approx. $50 million.

This isn’t Mr Cruise’s first effort to sell: Seven years ago, he tapped a real-estate agent to market the property for around $76 million, though it was never publicly listed, according to current listing agents Eric Lavey of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty and his colleague Dan Dockray. “I’m not sure [Cruise] was ready to sell it yet,” Mr Lavey said.

Ultra-private, the roughly 320-acre property is located at the end of a gated mile-long driveway that is surrounded by a forest of Aspen trees. It borders a national forest on three sides and is a few minutes downtown Telluride. Located on a hillside, the property sits at an elevation that allows the owner to look down on planes arriving at the nearby airport, the agents said.

“Everybody knows who owns this property, but you can’t see it from almost anywhere,” said Mr Dockray.

Mr Cruise spent several years designing and constructing the native stone-and-cedar home, which was completed in 1994. Roughly, 10,000 square feet, the four-bedroom house is designed in classic mountain style, with wood-beamed ceilings, wood-panelled walls and stone fireplaces. There is also a three-bedroom guesthouse on the property.

The activity-oriented features include a large sports court, a dirt bike and snowmobile track and an extensive network of trails for hiking, snowshoeing and all-terrain vehicles. There is also a spa, an office and a three-car garage.

A spokeswoman for Mr Cruise didn’t respond to a request for comment on his reasons for selling. The listing agents said they believed the actor hadn’t used the house in quite some time. They noted that the market in Telluride has been extremely active over the past few months as a result of the Covid-19 crisis, with buyers coming in from major cities across the country.

“People sat down during this lockdown and said ‘What am i doing with my life? I want a better lifestyle,’” Mr Dockray said.

Mr Cruise, 58, has appeared in movies like “Top Gun” and the “Mission Impossible” franchise. He has recently been filming in Europe.

Amid looming rate rises, there are reasons to be cheerful as mortgage holders head into 2023

Mortgage holders should brace themselves for more pain as the Reserve Bank of Australia board prepares to meet tomorrow for the first time this year.

Most economists and the major banks are predicting a rise of 25 basis points will be announced, although the Commonwealth Bank suggests that the RBA may take the unusual step of a 40 basis point rise to bring the interest rate up to a more conventional 3.5 percent. This would allow the RBA to step back from further rate rises for the next few months as it assesses the impact of tightening monetary policy on the economy.

The decision by the RBA board to make consecutive rate rises since April last year is an attempt to wrestle inflation down to a more manageable 3 or 4 percent. The Australian Bureau of Statistics reports that the inflation rate rose to 7.8 percent over the December quarter, the highest it has been since 1990, reflected in higher prices for food, fuel and construction.

Higher interest rates have coincided with falling home values, which Ray White chief economist Nerida Conisbee says are down 6.1 percent in capital cities since peaking in March 2022. The pain has been greatest in Sydney, where prices have dropped 10.8 percent since February last year. Melbourne and Canberra recorded similar, albeit smaller falls, while capitals like Adelaide, which saw property prices fall 1.8 percent, are less affected.

Although prices may continue to decline, Ms Conisbee (below) said there are signs the pace is slowing and that inflation has peaked.

“December inflation came in at 7.8 per cent with construction, travel and electricity costs being the biggest drivers. It is likely that we are now at peak,” Ms Conisbee said. 

“Many of the drivers of high prices are starting to be resolved. Shipping costs are now down almost 90 per cent from their October 2021 peak (as measured by the Baltic Dry Index), while crude oil prices have almost halved from March 2022. China is back open and international migration has started up again. 

“Even construction costs look like they are close to plateau. Importantly, US inflation has pulled back from its peak of 9.1 per cent in June to 6.5 per cent in December, with many of the drivers of inflation in this country similar to Australia.”
