If you’re looking at large mountain communities, you’ll want to consider the possibility that you may be selling in the future. If the property doesn’t have features that stand out to you now, it may not be easy to sell in the future.
Spend some time noticing how the sun hits the property. If you’re hoping to live in an area where snow is a possibility (and it is a very real possibility for mountain real estate in MT), you may want to consider how effectively the sun will melt snow on your driveway and the roads leading to your property.
Will you want to spend time sitting on a sun-warmed patio during the afternoon or light your home with plenty of morning sun? If you hope to enjoy the sun on your mountain real estate in Montana, be sure to visit the real estate during various times of the day to see where and when the sun will shine best.
