5 Reasons To Buy A 2nd Property In Georgetown Colorado

Have you always thought that 2nd homes or vacation properties in the mountains of Colorado are only for the rich and famous?  Think again.  Sure -- Aspen, Vail, Breckenridge, all of Summit County, and many other ski towns and areas are exclusive playgrounds for the wealthy -- but you don't have to go far to have a similar experience with easy access to skiing, hiking, and the wealth of opportunities in the mountains.  Consider Georgetown, CO -- here's why:

1. Does anyone really think that adding a 3rd lane to I-70 is really going to help the traffic that much between Denver and the Eisenhower Tunnel?  With the explosive growth in Denver, Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings heading west into the mountains and Sunday afternoons (or Mondays on long weekends) will continue to be a parking lot.  Knowing you have to fight this on daytrips is miserable.  When you aren't confined by the check-in and check-out hours of a hotel / condo, you can work around the traffic jams. Nevermind you can skip the loooong day trips and comfortably go up and stay in your own place.


2. Ok -- sure you aren't at the base of a ski resort.  But, we know there is a very small percentage of people who can afford a place offering that.  But, how about 7 world class ski resorts within an hour drive?  Loveland just 15 minutes away?


3. It isn't all about the winter.  Georgetown Lake is very popular throughout the summer.  On any given day you may see 50 people fishing -- more on the weekends.  How nice would it be to just step out your door to that?  


4. Tour buses actually stop in Georgetown for the Georgetown-Silver Plume train and the historic downtown.  There are numerous hiking trails right from the town.  A large number of restaurants for a place with only 1,000 residents.  Rafting.  Zip-lining, ATV's, and casinos all nearby.  Want to go to the city?  Golden is 30 minutes and downtown Denver about 50 minutes.


5. Did I mention YOU can afford it? Here are the current listings in Georgetown.  Under $100,000? Yes!


I have helped a number of people through the I-70 corridor between Denver and the Eisenhower Tunnel in Clear Creek County -- let me help you find what you didn't think was possible -- an affordable place in the mountains to call home or as a vacation home.
