Mammoth lakes real estate ca
We have had an amazing summer here in the Sierras!! 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 generally one of the most active months for real estate sales, with Buyers seeking to secure a home or Condo for the winter season this is the time many Sellers decide to list their properties. This can provide some of the top inventory of the whole year to pick from for Buyers.
Meanwhile, the weather is next to faultless in Mammoth. There is still an abundance of golf, hiking, biking, and fishing left in the season. Please take a moment to stop by and visit me at our office in The Village if you are in the area.
There are so many great developments in Mammoth Lakes. It’s important to define your budget clearly as well as to understand your budget.
1. Are you going to be renting out the property? If you are, occupancy rates and property management fees should be taken into consideration and these vary by project. It’s important to consider how often and what time of year you will be using your vacation 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 family? There are some projects that have more entertainment options for children. Many clients with children like to be in or near projects where there is a heated pool, arcade or other child friendly activities.
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. Give me a call and we can work together to find a vacation condo in a location that best suits your needs.
