Mountains make up the backbone of the United States and are the backdrop for some of the most beautiful natural locations and national parks in the country. Have you ever considered living in a desert mountain property or a cabin near a ski resort? These types of property are not only great locations for vacation homes but for those wanting to get away from the city and live life in the great outdoors away from the hustle and bustle. Life is much simpler, and the views are magnificent!
Why Consider Desert Mountain Property
Desert Mountain property is available throughout the United States and is actually some of the lower cost land and property available. Whereas vacation spots such as close to National Parks and Ski Resorts can be expensive, desert mountain property has a lower entry point and building costs are typically lower. Some desert mountain regions still have good access to nearby cities and other conveniences, but far enough away that you can live a tranquil lifestyle with 360 degrees views of the beautiful countryside.
Some people choice to purchase desert mountain land and then gain planning permits, if required, to build the property of their dreams on the land. Whereas others may want to move straight in so buy land with a property or properties already in situation. Some pockets of land require no planning permits and permissions because they’re far enough from anyone else for them to care, so if you plan to build a large ranch this can be ideal.
Think About a Mountain Ranch
For those wanting a bit more greenery and life in the Woods rather than in the desert type mountains, there are properties available in the more Northerly states which are much greener and come with a Forest area and possibly rivers, streams or lake access. If you’re a big fan of the hit TV series Alaskan Bush People then this could be the life for you! On your own land usually building permits and hunting permits aren’t required, and you have within reason, rights to lumber and minerals. You may already have the materials there that are needed to build your dream home.
Consider a Home in a Ski Resort
Look forward to your ski holiday every year? Some of the not as well known ski resorts can be a very good option for keen skiers because not only are the slopes emptier but also the properties are less expensive. While you’re using your Chalet you have access to the slopes and the rest of the year you could rent it out to other holiday makers or maybe even live there permanently. Ski resorts have a lot to offer because there are often other conveniences and facilities in the vicinity due to the tourist trade and have good road access.
Whether you’re considering a desert mountain property, a mountain ranch or a ski resort chalet, the US mountain ranges can hold out opportunities for beautiful homes.
