Finding great views and plenty of space for a larger family near the ski slopes can be a challenge in Steamboat Springs if you are looking to spend less than $800,000.
Currently there are only 3 townhomes listed for sale with over 3000 Sq.Ft in the mountain area, and if we add private homes to the search, there are 2 as of the date of this Steamboat real estate blog.
Families are drawn to Steamboat Springs and here are just a few reason why as mentioned in Ski Magazine.
Market Guide 2014: Top Family Resorts
West || No. 4: Steamboat, Colo.
“By far my favorite ski resort. Great value. Great snow. Great terrain. Plenty of character in the town and fun things for the family to do. We often went to ‘family jump night’; not to jump, but to watch. Great place to go with a family.”
“Excellent children’s program. Champagne powder. Genuine western hospitality.”
“Fantastic ski school and family ski programs. Amazing powder snow, with almost no lift lines. Friendly atmosphere and helpful people.”
One of the best deals out there for quality construction and nicely appointed features is Eagles Overlook # 104. Eagles Overlook #102 recently sold - a distress sale. In April of 2008 #105 sold for $985,000. #104 listed at $795,000 is one of the lowest prices per Sq.Ft. for a luxury townhouse in Steamboat Springs and HOA dues lower than the competition.

Two large Elk were hanging out in my neighborhood close to downtown Steamboat yesterday. It was hard to tell from a distance, but I bet Boone and Crocket would score this one high.

Fannie Mae conventional 97, which allowed a very low 3% downpayment is going away today and the new downpayment required will be 5%.
The 3% downpayment could have come as a gift, from a blood or by-marriage relative, and should be the case with the new 5% requirement. The guidelines are less-restrictive than an FHA loan; rates are usually better than FHA and mortgage insurance is less. If you are sitting on the fence and planning on qualifying for the conventional 97, you may want to call you lender today and submit your application to underwriting. The downpayment requirement goes up November 16th.
This conventional 97 loan was backed by the government and offered via Fannie Mae only.
Call Dean with your questions about low downpayment loan options for purchasing real estate in steamboat Springs, Colorado.
