For January, we're counting down the Top 5 Real Estate Deals as we jump into the new year. Here we go.
5.) 242 Goldenview Drive & 1226 Forest Hills Drive, Breckenridge
Our #5 pick is going to be vacant land in general with 2 specific properties that really stand out. Vacant land has been one of the hardest hit aspects of our market in the last few years. With all of the existing homes available at incredible pricing new construction has really dropped. The good news is that means you can buy a vacant lot today for a fraction of historic prices and build your dream home! In particular, 242 Goldenview Drive and 1226 Forest Hills Drive stand out. Both offer HUGE ski area views and easy access. 242 Goldenview is located on the bus route, adjacent to National Forest with live water on the property. Additionally, the lot is owned by a local reputable builder who already has plans in place and will offer an even better deal if a Buyer contracts him to build for them. Currently listed at $239,000, comparable lots in this neighborhood have sold as high as $375,000 in 2007 and more recently in 2011 for $241,800. 1226 Forest Hills borders a Forest Service parcel and is located just 2 miles north of town. On a newly paved road, lots in this area have sold for as much as $342,000 in 2008. This lot is listed at just $180,000!
