When buying property knowing what you are looking at makes all the difference.
I use the onX Hunt mobile app to show me real-time GPS based property boundaries. Anytime I visit properties with my buyers I use the onX Hunt app to walk the property boundaries and easily locate the property corners. Many times the property corners are marked, but barely visible. This app helps us make sure we are looking at the correct property and can easily visualize the boundaries.
I love hiking and exploring new areas. If you are buying property in Colorado then you should plan on waking or hiking the property to get a good feel for the land. Call me today and let’s go for a drive and hike and discover your dream property.
Don’t let winter slow down your real estate search. I drive a Tacoma that loves the snow, I have extra snowshoes, and I love and adventure. Some properties require a little extra effort to get to and explore and I’m happy to go the extra mile.
Operating Short and Long Term Rental Properties in Buena Vista, CO
When my wife and I moved to Buena Vista in 2006 we purchased a run down quad-plex on E. Main St and slowly remodeled each unit over the years. In 2015 we built a second quad-plex on the same property. We operate six units as long term with yearly leases. The other two units operate as short term rentals in the summer, then we secure 6-9 month leases through the winter. I know the in’s and out’s of managing short and long term rentals in Buena Vista. I am happy to share my experience, knowledge, and connections with local property managers, cleaners, builders, landscapers, and other professionals.
The Town of Buena Vista have new limits and restrictions for the operation of short term rentals. Here is an article on my blog that explains the STR rules and regulations for the Town of Buena Vista, CO. There are several neighborhoods that have established HOAs that either do not allow or restrict property owners from operating a vacation rental. Give me a call anytime; I’m happy to answer questions. If you are looking to purchase a property as an investment and plan to operate a short term vacation rental in Chaffee County, then you want to work with a Realtor who knows, understands, and pays attention to the changing regulations of short term rentals.
