Colorado Mountain Real Estate Guides – Helping You Find Home.
There is more to home than the sum of land and lumber. Home means being connected to the land and the seasons, your neighbors and community. Home means a healthy environment, a place to raise kids and invest for the future. .
Salida, Colorado, is a small town nestled at 7000′ in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. It is home to some of Colorado’s most majestic scenery. Fourteen thousand foot peaks surround our valley, a river runs through it, providing the lifeblood for a diverse community of ranchers, artists, adventurers, retirees, families and those seeking to reconnect with a slower place and time. It is a place where the words “neighborhood” and “community” are still relevant.
Purchasing or investing in a Colorado mountain property, be it a mountain home, horse property, vacation home or ranch, can be daunting. Many questions arise that affect your decision making process: What climate can I expect? Where does my water come from? What is the difference between buying on the valley floor as opposed to in the trees? How will the zoning of my property affect my property taxes.
