Buying a home or condo in Breckenridge

Buying a home in Breckenridge

Are you thinking about buying a home in Breckenridge? If so, let me offer some great advice as a Breckenridge local and real estate broker. Whilst not an exhaustive list, here are the key topics to consider when considering the purchase of Breckenridge property.

Select a great Breckenridge broker

Firstly, and needless to say the most important in my view, the selection of a broker. Not only has the experience to offer sound and informed advice. But also a realtor who suits your buying style and understands fully your needs and wants. With this in mind, I always recommend that buyers interview their broker and get to know them well.

Breckenridge Real Estate Statistics – March 2018

As we progress into spring, the discussion moves onto how many listings we will see in the summer selling season, and how the statistics for the Breckenridge real estate market will influence decision making. Certainly the trend for low inventory continues to hold, as does the level of appreciation that we have been experiencing. Coming out of a low snow season for the state of Colorado, with Breckenridge doing well and averaging 100% of snowpack for this time of year, the argument for Breck holding firm to its popularity and in term market position is strong.

Moving to Breckenridge, Colorado? What to know about the altitude.

By: ESJacobson

As your search for property for sale in Breckenridge begins, the obvious benefits will be easy to see. The gorgeous scenery, clean air, and laid back vibe all draw folks toward making a move to this striking mountain setting. But, there is more to consider than whether ski in/ski out or downtown Breckenridge is the way to go.

Relocating to the High Rockies can present challenges for some people, particularly those that have spent most of their lives between sea level and 4500 ft. above. Exactly who may be negatively affected by high altitude is unknown. Age, gender, fitness level, factors that might seem obvious, have not been shown to relate to individual experiences.

We do know that it can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks for your body to adjust, and as long as two years for you to achieve the workout endurance that you enjoyed while living below 5000 ft. A combination of low humidity, air pressure, and oxygen concentration can contribute to initially enduring lethargy, headache, dizziness, and shortness of breath. Hydration and diet will play a crucial role in adjusting to and living at higher altitudes
