If you live in Summit County or have ever vacationed here, you probably have a sense of the high cost of living in Breckenridge. Thankfully, there are several options for local affordable housing - our family lives in a "deed-restricted" home in one such affordable neighborhood, and we're so grateful for the opportunity to own a home in Breckenridge! Currently, there is a lot of excitement centered around "workforce housing," with a new affordable neighborhood coming on the market called Blue 52 and with today's Launch of Phase 3 of Lincoln Park at the Wellington Neighborhood! Come check out the Launch Party at 17 Farncomb Green in Breckenridge, from 4pm to 6pm, today!
We also have a deed-restricted listing in our neighborhood! It's a spacious, 1297 sq ft duplex with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths, listed at $390,000. This property features 9' ceilings and huge windows that flood the home with natural lighting. Hardwood floors, an open floor plan, plenty of storage, a large porch that overlooks the adjacent wooded open space and room to build a 2-car garage are some of the highlights of this well-loved home. The neighborhood is idyllic, close to trails & a short walk or free bus ride to town, with nearby amenities and very low monthly HOA dues. Click here for more info and photos!
What a gorgeous sunny morning we're having here in Breckenridge -- the forecast is calling for a week filled with blue skies and idyllic temps in the 70s. If you know Summit County, you know the 70s feel like 80s & low 90 degree temps when you're spending time in the sun. Perfect summer weather if you ask us... admittedly, we're a bit biased.
We wanted you all to know about a new listing we have on the market! It's a wonderful property just south of Breckenridge -- about a 4 minute drive into town. Click here to see some photos and for more information on this 2-level home. With 2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom and a full kitchen on both levels, it has a great history as a long-term rental property. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you are interested in learning more!
We hope your summer days are filled with peace, joy and sun!
June 1st was such a happy day for our good friend, Molly -- although truthfully, she would tell you that she was a little bit nauseous at her closing. Buying your first home is a BIG deal! Not only is Molly a first-time homebuyer, she's also a high school math teacher here in the mountains. It was an honor to walk her through her first home-buying experience and celebrate with her on closing day! There was a lot of laughter all along the way.
Here's what Molly had to say about her experience:
"Phil is so wonderful to work with!! He is extremely professional, but he is also a really fun person to work with and just be around. I really appreciated that Phil really cared about making sure that everything we did was to insure that I was going to be happy in my decision. I am a first time home buyer and he was patient with me and knowledgeable about the process. It was extremely comforting to know that Phil was there if I had any questions or needed anything reviewed again (even if I had done it multiple times already). He was readily available to talk and responded to my emails or calls right away. If you are looking for someone that has great connections to the community and is an incredibly hard worker then Phil is your man! You will definitely not be disappointed in your decision. Phil will work night and day to make sure that you are happy and satisfied in selling or buying your home!"
Welcome HOME, Molly! We could not be more excited for you and your next adventure!
