When choosing a location for a property, it is important to consider elements that are most important to you and for any potential hosting.

Features and Amenities

With a condo or townhome, there will likely be association fees. This added cost can offer access to luxury amenities like relaxing hot tubs and pools, ski-in/out, and direct access to hiking and biking. Colorado mountain getaways that offer luxury amenities are great for owners and renters alike.  Short-term rental websites allow customers to filter properties for specific amenities. 

When on vacation, we all want things to be easy and convenient. Owning a Colorado mountain getaway condo can offer so much more access to great features and amenities that make it highly desirable. 


Mountain real estate prices vary based on a number of items. Ski-in/out might be the most desirable characteristic, and it comes with a high premium. On top of location, a clear, unobstructed mountain view could cost 20% to 30% higher than a similar unit with no view. Colorado mountain getaway townhomes and condos are generally less expensive than single-family homes.

Potential of Income

Owning a Colorado mountain getaway property not only provides a great place for you to access at your own leisure; it could potentially generate income for you. Short-term rentals in areas in ski towns continuously sell out during peak the months of November through April and June through August. You can even trade days at your property for another location of your choice on certain websites.

There are even potential tax benefits and advantages to renting out your property, so it is essential to have discussions with a real estate broker like myself and an accountant to see how you can maximize profits along with your leisure.
