How to Buy a Property in Breckenridge, CO
Today’s post is all about How to Buy a Property in Breckenridge, CO. If you’re not into reading an entire article, then go to our SEARCH MLS page and being your hunt for the perfect home! Yes, I’m sure you’ve heard about how tough it is to purchase a home in in Summit County, and if you haven’t, well, let’s just start by saying it’s a seller’s market. What does that mean? Well, that means that the supply is limited and buyers are choosing between limited properties and they are going for full or over listing price.
We briefly covered this market in the Market opinion blog earlier this year, and you can find that by clicking here. The “great COVID migration” is what has been fueling this buying surge in the mountains. Everyone has realized how important lifestyle is to their everyday living and have chosen a mountain environment near Breck as their stomping grounds.
Remote working near the Colorado ski resorts allowed some to live the dream of being able to ski when they could, and / or being able to purchase something that their family could enjoy while having to go to school and work remotely. Families realized that they didn’t want to be in their current situations and were able to secure an opportunity to live their dreams.
Searching Available Properties and Homes in Breck
Finding the right home for your family isn’t an easy task right now. The simple reason is a lot of families don’t know where to start, or what the true market is like when you get to the negotiations and putting together an offer that won’t be ignored.
The first thing most will do is a simple web search to see what pops up. Unfortunately, there are many out of date web portals that share off market listings and information that may be misleading. This makes it confusing and disappointing when clients reach out and are excited about a property they found, only to discover it’s off market or has already been sold.
Finding the Right Neighborhood to Fit Your Lifestyle
Some families want a ski-in ski-out property to fully maximize their time while on vacation. It does take a few more minutes to drive to town, park, and hop on the bus to get to the resort. Others prefer to be further out of town where it’s a little more quiet and secluded and don’t mind the drive so that they can return to their solitude amongst the forest trees.
We have been in almost every neighborhood in the Summit County towns of Breckenridge, Copper Mountain, Dillon, Keystone and Silverthorne and know what trails and amenities are nearby. That allows us to match listings with the wants and needs of families looking to move to a home that meets most or all items on their checklist.
