This summer in the Sierras has been spectacular! As fall approaches we can be sure for winter to follow and by all reports we are supposed to have a great one. October is typically one of the hottest months for real estate sales, with Consumers seeking to secure a home or Condo for the winter season this is the time many Sellers decide to list their properties. This offers some of the finest inventory of the entire year to pick from for Buyers.
In the meantime, the weather is close to perfect in Mammoth. There is still an abundance of golf, hiking, biking, and fishing left in the season. Come one by our office and visit us in the Mammoth Village if you are in the area and we can show you some of the current inventory.
Mammoth Lakes has such a great variety of high quality developments. It’s important to define your budget clearly as well as to understand your budget.
1. Will you be renting out the property? If yes, occupancy rates and property management fees should be taken into consideration and these vary by project. Consider how often and when you will be using your property.2. Do you prefer to visit Mammoth in the Summer or Winter? Specifically, what are your interests? Although Mammoth Lakes is relatively small and you can be anywhere in a few minutes, being closer to your favorite activities is nice. For example, is ski in/ski out access important to you? What about easy access to the shuttle?
3. Do you have kids? Certain condo projects have more things to do for kids. Some projects have arcades, family activities, and family friendly pools.
4. Do you want to want to be in walking distance to dining and shopping or do you prefer to be more off the beaten path?Some prefer to stay in the center of action where they can simply “park and play” without ever using their car. Others like to be within walking distance to shopping but want to be more remote during most of their time in Mammoth Lakes.
5. Will you be financing or paying cash? Make sure the project you are interested in has financing available. Knowing in advance which projects are cash only can save you time and help you avoid wanting a property that cannot be financed.Most of the above questions are common sense but many people have not thought through what is important to them.
