Gold Flake – Luxury, Views, and Convenience

The custom luxury homes here have been built over more than three decades, in four different filings, so there is a diversity of sizes, styles, and vintages. Lot sizes in Gold Flake range from one-third of an acre to 3 acres. Homes vary from 2500 square feet to nearly 9000 square feet.

The original Gold Flake subdivision saw construction beginning in the 1980s. Gold Flake II features homes built in the 1990s and beyond, and Gold Flake III and Gold Flake Filing 3A are home to the newest homes in the development, beginning right around 2000 and continuing today, especially along Stillson Placer.

Homes in Gold Flake are custom built and many include the stunning alpine grandeur you would expect from a custom luxury Breckenridge neighborhood. Rustic textures, timberwork, and rich natural elements combine with soaring panes of glass to maximize the spectacular view corridors.

Many Gold Flake homes for sale also feature expansive west-facing decks and outdoor living areas — some beautifully terraced into the hillside — designed to capture the sun-drenched afternoons and the magnificent views of the Breckenridge Ski Area and the Ten Mile Range. Just below can be seen the bustling town of Breckenridge.

And while views are spectacular from your perch in Gold Flake, you’re just a quick walk (downhill) to town. Take one of two quaint and forested footpaths and arrive at the shops and restaurants of Breck within around 10 minutes. The return walk, of course, will be uphill, so you could opt for the free Breckenridge shuttle, which will drop you off at nearby Wellington Road.

This bus stop can easily connect you to skiing, as well. The Breckenridge Free Ride, Breck’s free shuttle service, stops along Wellington Road at least twice an hour, making it easy for many Gold Flake owners and guests to access the galleries, shopping, and dining of Breckenridge, as well as the ski mountain. (The final stop along this convenient bus route is the Breckenridge station, which is adjacent to the Breck Connect gondola.)

Hiking and biking trails abound in the Gold Flake subdivision. If you prefer to go, not into town, but deeper into the forest, another series of paths and trails will take you into open space, connecting you eventually into the Golden Horseshoe and acres and acres of national forest.

To explore the Gold Flake subdivisions, from Wellington Road, head south on Pine Street or Gold Flake Terrace. Street names within the Gold Flake Subdivisions, in addition to Pine and Gold Flake Terrace, include Gold Flake Court, Hermit Drive, and Stillson Placer Terrace.

Like other Breckenridge properties, homes in Gold Flake are subject to a 1% transfer tax. HOA fees are minimal and are assessed annually.

Gold Flake Homes and the Vacation Rental Market

As you can imagine from its magnificent views, spacious properties, and proximity to town, homes in the Gold Flake subdivisions tend to do quite well in the short term, vacation rental market. Learn more about renting your Gold Flake home when you aren’t in town to enjoy it yourself. And contact me for historic or projected income for any properties you might be interested in.

When we look at investment properties together, we will look closely at this rental income (whether historic or projected), combined with potential tax savings, and the possible appreciation of the property over time.

We’ll examine key operating ratios via an Investment Property Analysis prepared specifically for you and your situation. This will include a Cash Flow analysis, and other key operating ratios, so you can easily compare investment properties against one another.

We’ll examine such ratios as the investment property’s Capitalization Rate (CAP), Cash on Cash (COC), Gross Rent Multiplier (GRM), Net Income Multiplier (NIM), Debt Coverage Ratio (DCR), and the Expense Ratio (ER) of the property. (These analyses will be made based on information provided by you, the client and/or MLS data. Projections are provided for informational purposes only. Susie Cortright and RE/MAX Properties of the Summit do not guarantee nor imply that the illustrated outcome will produce the stated return.)

Keep in mind that, on many Breckenridge and Summit County residential properties, buyers will realize a cash flow only with a substantial down payment, and, even then, they may have a property that just breaks even – a “cash flow neutral.”

Even so, keep in mind that your equity in the property will increase as you continue to pay your mortgage. And if the property also increases in value while you own it, you can gain considerable equity. There may also be tax benefits.

Contact me today to let me know the details of what you are looking for, and I’ll respond as soon as possible with my hand-picked Investment Property Best Buys, unique to you and what you’re looking for.

Each day, I comb the MLS listings for properties with high short term rental numbers (whether historic or projected), in proportion to list price. See my current list of properties with particular promise for short term rental income.

You can also read about the process of renting out your home here: Real Estate and Vacation Rentals. And learn about the Tax Advantages of Second Homes, including investment properties, as well as how to depreciate the expenses of investment property.

Beaver Run Resort Condos for Sale

Beaver Run Resort Condos for Sale

Over the past few days, I’ve had the distinct pleasure of previewing a variety of Beaver Run Resort Condos for sale, ranging from $269,000 to $645,000.

Breckenridge Peak 9 base area at Beaver Run

Beaver Run Resort offers some of the most affordable ski in ski out condos in the town of Breckenridge, and the location and views are pretty hard to beat.

Spectacular scenery and convenience to the slopes are just the beginning. The amenities, listed below, are so numerous you’ll feel as though you’re staying in a hotel.

Beaver Run is a great example, in fact, of that new sort of lodging referred to as “condo-tel” (condominium-hotel). In a condo-tel arrangement, each rental unit is individually owned. That means the furnishings and the interior design of each unit differs, though each unit is managed just as a traditional hotel.

Beaver Run Resort delivers true ski-in, ski-out convenience with Breckenridge ski area lift access granted by the Beaver Run Super Chair and the Quicksilver Chair. And, with Main Street only a few blocks away, you’ll be never be far from the shopping, cuisine and special events offered in downtown Breckenridge

Beaver Run Resort Condos

Conveniently situated at the base of Peak 9 and comprised of more than four buildings, Beaver Run is the largest condo complex in Breckenridge. Built between 1980 and 1985, Beaver Run offers 435 units, ranging in size from 460 square foot studios to four-bedroom condos with nearly 2000 square feet. The buildings at Beaver Run resort are connected via Skywalk walkways that span the streets below, so the traffic and weather won’t affect you one bit once you’re inside.  Beaver Run Condos are pet friendly (for unit owners), as well. And its business center and conference services make it an ideal second home or rental property for business travelers and entrepreneurs.

Beaver Run boasts the largest Conference Center in Breckenridge with more than 40,000 square feet of meeting and expo space and plays host to many conferences, weddings and special events throughout the year.

Contact me today for more information on this property or any other at Beaver Run resort.

Beaver Run Resort Amenities

  • Indoor/Outdoor Pool
  • Hot tubs
  • Tennis court (outdoors and weather dependent)
  • Video arcade
  • Mini golf
  • Exercise Room
  • In-house spa (with massage therapists)
  • In house ski and snowboard rental
  • Spencer’s Restaurant
  • CopperTop Café, CopperTop II
  • Base Nine Bar
  • Beaver Run business center
  • Concierge
  • Bell service
  • Security
  • Free underground parking
  • Laundry Service, including dry cleaning

Again, Beaver Run Resort makes it easy to get around. An enclosed bridge spans Village Road to connect Beaver Run with the Breckenridge ski area base. A free shuttle connects you to town (though it’s only a few blocks away, so you may even prefer to walk.)

Short term rental income at Beaver Run Condos
Beaver Run Resort is a leading income producer for the price. A one bedroom condo listed at $269,000, for example, boasted 2013 Gross Rental Income of $24,434. Each of the Beaver Run Resort Condos I previewed today, in fact, have strong rental histories. The unit with a listing price of $269,000 reported a 2013 Gross Rental Income of $24,424. The property listed at $625,000 reported a 2013 gross rental income of $48,959.

Contact me to discuss the rental history at Beaver Run Condos for sale in greater depth.

Location of Beaver Run Condos for Sale: 601, 611, 631, and 640 Village Road.
