Are You Ready to Sell Your Crested Butte Dream Home?
This is a tough decision. As a Crested Butte 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 in the Crested Butte area. Your mountain home has been a gathering place for you, your family and friends for years where you have created lasting memories, and this can be hard to let go of. It is not unusual to be unsure, or at a minimum to have lots of questions about the process and what to expect. I have guided many clients through the process of successfully listing, marketing and selling their mountain homes. I hope my experience can help guide you as well.
Things change, and it may be time for you to start considering your options. You may be ready, you may not know if you are ready, or you may be just starting to think about selling your special mountain home.
What Is the Next Chapter in Your Life?
I work with many clients that have enjoyed their mountain dream home in Crested Butte Colorado for years, but now they are excited about the next chapter in their life. Kids grow up, have families of their own, and get very busy with their lives and their kids’ lives, and they cannot find the time to get back to 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. Many also consider selling, and replacing their existing mountain home with a home in a warmer climate with little or no winter and no snow and ice – they are trading in their old alpine and Nordic skis for new golf clubs and tennis racquets. Many also sell their homes, but continue to spend a month or so in Crested Butte and rent a place as an option that gives them the added flexibility to come and go.
“Things change but the river keeps flowing.”
I had a wise friend say to me, when he recognized changes in his life, “Things change but the river keeps flowing.” Many times, what is around that next bend in the river that we cannot see right now offers calmer waters, and is a beautiful destination. It can be hard to embrace change, but harder to fight the inevitable. You may stop and consider the option of going with the flow and seeing that there are forces that may be guiding you. Stop, look, and listen.
There may have been a major change in your life, you may find that your second home in Crested Butte is getting used less and less, and perhaps it is falling into disrepair, or there is always something that needs to be fixed. Many families have enjoyed spending time at their second home in the mountains, but once the 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.
