How Important is Price Per Square Foot?

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

How Important is Price Per Square Foot?  In some real estate markets it is not a pricing tool that holds much credibility. However in the Steamboat Springs real estate market, realtors, sellers and buyers all have a tendency to focus on square footage calculations and comparable sold and active homes. One could argue for or and against this, and both sides could have a valid argument:

Sold!

PRO: The biggest advantage of using price per square foot is that it is a tangible measure. It appears clear cut and therefore makes it easier to value a home and compare it to other listings.

PRO: For much of the Steamboat inventory, many condos are just like the others. So Price Per Foot can be used.

PRO: Price per square foot is the primary calculation tool used by many appraisers so it can be important to know these figures in your local market. Unless its a cash sale, this impacts both buyers and sellers even though they may not realize it.

How Many Porches On Your Dream Home?

Monday, February 15th, 2016

How many porches on your dream home? How about a wraparound veranda, an open terrace, and a romantic master balcony?

Just listed is a delightful stone and timber home on 35 acres of undulating pastures and montane scrubland. Located within a gated enclave consisting of just a handful of properties, prepare to be surrounded by stunning views and meandering wildlife.

Be smitten by the mountain architecture, multiple wood burning fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, sun drenched reading nook, and the vistas from every room.

Three bedrooms, three bathrooms in the main home plus a fully decked out one bedroom caretaker suite above the three car garage mean there is plenty of space for friends and family. Clearly good things come in threes!

A feeling of isolation and complete privacy evokes images of the wild west, however you are only 35 minutes to Steamboat Springs and 5 minutes to Stagecoach reservoir. The National Forest is accessible nearby to satisfy the outdoorsman/woman in you.
