Picture this: After spending a day on the slopes of Winter Park Resort, and enjoying apres ski libations, you hop on The Lift for a free ride to your mountain home instead of going to your car to face I-70 traffic. It’s not too late! Most home sales close in 45-60 days (faster for a cash buyer!)...which means mountain property could be yours before the 2017 holiday season!
Three things to consider so you are prepared for success in our fast-paced market:
Talk to a lender. It’s a good idea to discuss your buying power with a lender. Determine what you are qualified to borrow if you plan to finance your home. In order to strengthen an offer, buyers should provide a prequalification letter.
Explore the different markets. Do you have a clear idea of what will fit your needs? Is walkability to town important? Or ski in ski out? Do you want to be close to The Lift bus stop to avoid parking? Condo or single family home? Do you prefer a view or being nestled in the trees? At Real Estate of Winter Park, we are happy to help with this process. Give us a call or stop in to see us!
When you make an offer, be prepared to make it STRONG! This isn’t always about the dollar amount. Consider which contingencies you can take out of the equation to make the offer as clean as possible for the seller.
While we are in a fast market, there are many great properties available! Contact Real Estate of Winter Park for an update on current listings, or to set an appointment to look at property. We look forward to hearing from you!

With the second snowfall of the season and more in the forecast,
"Julie White was outstanding. She was always available when we needed her for looking at homes, providing statistical information, and giving her opinion when needed. She was also instrumental in structuring our offers with ideas on successfully dealing with a multiple offer on one of them. She was our agent for two transactions- a lot in Pole Creek and a home in Grand Elk. Her calmness was evident throughout the whole process on both transactions. We've already recommended her to two of our friends."
