Are You Ready to Sell Your Crested Butte Home?
This is a tough decision. As a real estate agent, I get the opportunity to talk with many clients about the changes in their lives and if they are ready to sell their dream home. Crested Butte has been a gathering place for you, your family and friends for years. You have created lasting memories here, and this can be hard to let go of. It is not unusual to be unsure if you are ready to sell your Crested Butte home. But things change, and it may be time for you to start considering your options. It can be hard to embrace change, but harder to fight the inevitable. You may be ready, you may not know if you are ready, or you may be just starting to think about selling your special Crested Butte home.
Are You Sure You Want to Sell Your Crested Butte Home?
This is a valid question. Because if you are not really sure, then you may want to hold off until you are. If you are not sure and you are not motivated to sell, then you will only go through the motions. And in the end it probably won’t sell. You may get frustrated with the whole process, your real estate agent and buyers. You probably will not do the things you need to do to help ensure your Crested Butte home gets sold for the highest price. It’s not worth it to let the last memories of your home be unhappy ones.
Checklist to See if You Are Ready to Sell
It can be very hard to decide if you are ready to sell your Crested Butte home. If you are on the fence, here is a checklist that may help you determine if you are really ready to sell. If you answer “Yes” to the majority of the items below, you are probably ready to sell your Crested Butte home.
- You have not been to your home for a year.

- The altitude bothers you and you cannot sleep at night or have trouble breathing.
- Where you once saw winter beauty and adventure, now you see cold and danger.
Ready to Sell Because of Family
I work with many clients that have enjoyed their mountain dream home for years. However, they are now excited about the next chapter in their life. Many families have enjoyed spending time at their second home in the mountains. But kids grow up, move to all parts of the country or world, get married, and have their own kids. It can get hard for the family to find the time to spend vacation time together at the mountain home regularly. It can also be tough if the new young family is not in close proximity to the mountain home and unable to afford the money for airfare to get there. Many older couples I have worked with have sold their homes so they can buy a permanent home closer to where their kids and grandkids live. Others are buying a second home closer to their kids and grandkids.
