The Perfect Crested Butte Dream Home
“Chasing” the Perfect Dream Home – Sometimes I get a call from a prospective buyer who describes what they are looking for as “a nice, new ski-in/ski-out home, on the river, with fishing rights, within walking distance to the restaurants and shops in town, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms and great views, oh, and it must be a really great deal…”
The good news is that there are many locations (see Crested Butte Subdivisions) and options available for the second homeowner in outlying areas, or in Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte areas. The “perfect home” may be hard to find, but it is out there for everyone. Keeping an open mind is important; what you think you want up front may change after looking at the ten homes you thought were what you wanted, but then realized your perspective has changed. Keep in mind how you would use your home with family, friends and clients.
Sometimes buyers “chase” a market, and return on every trip wondering why prices are creeping up, or the inventory of homes that meet their exact criteria is shrinking. Usually this is a result of not finding what they want and the natural thought process of expanding the search by increasing the price range. It may be better to find a home that has the majority of the features you want at the right price right now, than to wait for the perfect dream home that never materializes. Usually it is a hard decision, but putting a stake in the ground and starting your Crested Butte journey now may be the best decision vs. kicking your dream down the path (just sayin’).
