If you are hoping to buy a home in Colorado's Vail Valley, chances are you already have an idea of the type of home you're looking for. Even so, taking some time to decide on your "must have" criteria is an important step in your home search. In our experience, it is best to have between three and five items on your "must have" list. These "must haves" are the non-negotiable qualities a home must possess to be even worth a visit.
Below are some questions to get you thinking about your own 3-5 "must haves":
How many bedrooms must the home have? This simple but important question is an excellent place to start your "must have" list.
What type of home are you looking for? Do you prefer a single family home or duplex, or are you looking for a condo or townhouse?
Which neighborhoods would you consider? Whether you want to be close to where you work, a particular school, the slopes or a golf course, it might make sense to narrow your selection down by neighborhood.
What are the key features the home must have? Do you need a large kitchen? Could you live without a garage? Do you need a home office?
What else is important to you? Are you looking for big mountain views? Proximity to nightlife or the great outdoors?
What is your budget for the home? A price range is a great item to add to your "must have" list.
Do you want your home “move-in ready”? Is a “fixer-upper” okay? If so, how much of a "fixer upper?"
Of course, these are just suggestions - your list of "must haves" will be unique to you.
