Now there is a way to buy into Aspen and Snowmass Real Estate at a fraction of the price and be able to enjoy it year after year. Life is too short not to enjoy it and take vacations where you can enjoy 300 plus days of sunshine a year. Aspen and Snowmass is that kind of place. Since the peak of the real estate market in Aspen and Snowmass at the beginning of 2008, we have seen prices of fraction ownership interests decline on average over 50%.
Fractional ownership started to boom roughly 10 years ago in vacation spots that had expensive real estate. It was a way for vacationers to buy into an expensive private residence or club sometimes managed by famous hotels at a fraction of the price.
In Aspen, the names include the St. Regis, Ritz-Carlton, Grand Hyatt, and The Little Nell. The services that these fractional ownerships provide are often first class. Developers now build these units with first class materials and luxury in mind. No longer do buyers have to deal with maintenance and upkeep of a vacation rental when only using it a few weeks a year. Also unlike timeshares where you only stay in the unit you bought time in, owners are allowed to stay in similar units than the one they bought at the property, allowing for more flexibility and space availability.
The Timbers Club in Snowmass is the premier residence club in Snowmass offering ski-in, ski-out access and luxury 3 bedroom, 3 bath accommodations that are around 2,000 sq. ft. in size. The Timbers Club sold out quickly and now only has resales available. The fractional ownerships are sold in 1/8 shares and allow you to use 2 prime weeks in the winter and 2 prime weeks in the summer. Also, allow 1 other week in the winter and 1 other week in the summer after all owners have picked their prime weeks. Then there is more time available on space availability. The positive of The Timbers Club is that it does not allow owners to rent their units, so more space available time is available to owners. There is also less wear and tear on the units because only owners use them and tend to take better care. The Timbers offers hassle free ownership with all the luxuries of purchasing a multi-million dollar property at a fraction of the price.
Timbers Club Members enjoy the following exclusive amenities:
• Residential ownership at a private mountain club
