Park City Utah Neighborhoods

Park City Utah Neighborhood Search

There are many great neighborhoods in the Park City area to consider when purchasing property.  For some buyers walking distance to Park City's Main Street area is important and others may prefer a ski in ski out location at one of Park City's three ski resorts and yet others are planning to relocate their family to live here full time so they are looking for family friendly locations with easy access to trails and parks.

As a Park City Buyers' Agent, I find it is first important to determine which neighborhoods will best fit my clients' needs before looking at property.  A tour of the various neighborhoods in person is a good start. It is really hard to determine this online.  I find often buyers have felt certain

Park City Mountain Bike Group Rides

White Pine Touring

Summer is a great time to explore the many miles of trails in the Park City Utah area.  If you are new to the area and enjoy mountain biking, the weekly group rides with White Pine Touring are a great way to meet other liked minded folks as well as get to know the trails.  They offer a variety of levels to ride with from beginner to advanced.

Increase Curb Appeal in Park City

Custom Wood Garage Doors 

Last year I purchased a beautiful custom wood garage door for my Park City Utah home from Carriage House Door Company.  I found that the new wood garage door helped to increase my home's curb appeal.  I've been working on various remodel projects around my home and this was an easy one that added a big impact to my home quickly.  One of my clients also purchased a beautiful  custom wood door from Carriage House Door Company after they saw my beautiful door which looks like piece of furniture.  Cameron who is their local representative in Utah is great to work with.
