Each client has their own unique combination of features that would make the perfect home, but the list usually contains a view of some sort. When we meet with seller’s we explain the different types of views and how they are valued. Here’s how we break them down.
The main categories are City Lights Views or Mountain Views. Then are they long or short and of something famous or not. Usually the long or short views come into play when talking about mountains more than cities, but some of the urban lofts we sell have short views. A short mountain view is when you’re up against say troon mountain and you can see the detail on the rocks that make up the hill. Long views are when you gaze across Rio Verde at Four Peaks miles and miles away. In this case, the longer the view of the famous Four Peaks the more valuable than the close view of Troon.
Once we figure out what we’re looking at, then we judge from where it can be seen. Views from the corner of an upstairs bedroom or the backyard on your tippy toes just isn’t as valuable as views from your outdoor sitting area. If we continue to get more valuable, it would be from laying in bed inside the house, then to the social gathering area inside, then to the kitchen. Long mountain views through the front door to mountains far in the distance are the most valuable… however, be sure you know what is in between you and hills because if there is a chance they’ll get blocked, value over.
