Hello, June! Another mud season is in the books and buyers are flocking to Breckenridge to snatch up property just in time for summer fun. There’s so much to do in Breck this time of year! Kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, boating on Lake Dillon – we could keep going. But, we’ll save summer recreation for another blog post. Today we’re talking all about what buyers in Breckenridge are looking for right now. If you’re thinking about selling your home, listen up.
Who is buying in Breckenridge right now?
At Dwell Summit, we’re helping a lot of married couples between the ages of 40 and 55 look for their second or third home. In other words, this isn’t their first rodeo. As experienced homeowners, these buyers are discerning and know exactly what they want. Don’t be intimidated – this is a good thing!
According to the National Association of REALTORS® 2017 Home Buyers and Sellers Generational Trends Report, buyers between the ages of 37 and 51 have the highest median priced homes of all buyers. They also buy the largest homes in median square footage and bedrooms. This makes sense, since most of our clients in this age bracket are parents to teenagers and college kids. These buyers are looking for properties with enough space for everyone – and they have the budget.
What buyers in Breckenridge are looking for right now
In addition to having enough bedrooms for their teenage and adult children, buyers in Breckenridge want a separate living space for the kids. Whether it’s a finished basement, bonus room, converted attic, or loft area, a second lounge space is at the top of their wish lists. This gives everyone enough space to stretch out and relax after a day on the mountain. Family time is awesome, but there’s something to be said about enjoying a glass of wine without a movie blasting in the background.
Buyers in Breckenridge are also looking for en suite bathrooms. This isn’t really a surprise, since a master bathroom is one of the most consistently requested home features. While mandatory for the master, properties with multiple en suite bathrooms score brownie points. Stepping out of the bathtub and sliding between the sheets is the ultimate luxury. Plus, en suite bathrooms offer privacy for the homeowners and their guests.
Another thing buyers in Breckenridge are looking for right now is outdoor space. It doesn’t have to be a multi-level deck with a hot tub and a view, though that certainly wouldn’t hurt. Buyers are also open to patios with cozy fire pits, balconies, and lawns. Basically, if you have a space where you can step outside and enjoy a breath of fresh mountain air, buyers are going to love it.
