Have you been thinking about where to purchase the perfect second home? Are you imagining somewhere with a small-town feel, the benefits of fresh powder out your front door, and a sparkling mountain lake ready for boating and exploring? If this is something you would revel in, we suggest the "Main Street to the Rockies" town of Frisco, Colorado.
Frisco as Home
Once a mining development, this historic and charming spot provides the perfect combination of resort and local community you’ll love for your mountain vacation home. Owning a vacation home means you are entirely flexible when you visit. If you feel like cozying up by the fire and taking a break from the busyness of everyday life, settle into your very own place with your personal furnishings. Fell like hitting the slopes? You have 7 unique ski and snowboarding options nearby: Frisco Adventure Park for beginners, Arapahoe Basin, Keystone, Breckenridge, Loveland, Ski Cooper, and Copper Mountain! Along with the Frisco area’s downhill destinations, 27k of skate ski/cross-country/snowshoe trails can be enjoyed at the Frisco Nordic Center.
And in the summer, enjoy Lake Dillon on your doorstep and the Frisco Bay Marina all readily available to you with boat, kayak, and fishing pole rentals. That's just the start! This area boasts a golf and disc course, hiking and biking trails, and some amazing cuisine plus live music at the Dillon Amphitheater
and loads of festivals and events all year. Top all that off with clean air, clean water, and friendly folks and you’ve got a recipe for happiness.
Being Part of the Frisco Community
Owning a vacation home in Frisco, instead of relying on hotel and vacation rental accommodations, sets you up to become part of the local community. You’ll experience your town in a different and new way when you own a home by getting involved in local clubs, classes, and events. Frisco has a wonderful community with less than 2,800 full-time residents and a host of daily activities. Try the Winter Lecture Series at the Museum and learn about the area's "long-lost secrets", according to the town's website; or perhaps try some brisket at the Colorado BBQ Challenge while enjoying the kick-off concert and kids' activities.
Groups of locals gather for hiking, biking, skiing, kayaking and dancing activities together, and you’ll be surprised at how many happy hour and live music events are scattered throughout the year. The possibilities of becoming part of the fabric of everyday life in Frisco are endless when you have a home in Frisco.
A Mountain Vacation Home Brings First-Rate Benefits
The benefits of owning a vacation home are numerous. Housing markets dip and rise, but the overall trend throughout history has been that real estate is a beneficial investment that gains value over time. There is a limited supply of homes in desirable areas like Frisco, Colorado. Being just a little over 60 minutes away from Denver and conveniently located off I-70, this area of Summit County is continually sought-after as an escape from the city in addition to the destination visitors from around the world. This is beneficial in so many ways. Listing your home as a short-term rental when you’re not using it can offset the cost of owning. Or having a lock-off apartment as a separate area of your home could bring in revenue even when you are in residence in the main part of your house. And the best part is, it can be hassle free if you decide to have a property management company handle the business of booking vacationers, cleaning and maintenance.
Another huge benefit of owning is that you will have an asset that gains equity over time. So this means that your monetary contribution into your dwelling can provide a nice profit over time, whereas staying in hotels and rental condos never returns your investment.
Owning a vacation home often offers a tax benefit, too. Look for regulations that allow you to deduct your property taxes and the interest on your mortgage if you have one.
The best part about owning a vacation property in Frisco is the predictability. You can come to your house when you please; no online searching for accommodations. You can plan your days without being anxious about hotel check-ins and check-outs and you will know your money is being invested instead of spent. Making this Rocky Mountain town your new vacation community becomes a valuable decision you can fully enjoy!
