Why Prefab Is Perfect for the Mountains

According to Zillow, Colorado home prices have been soaring for years, with today’s median mountain home price climbing close to $800,000. With the housing shortage in Colorado, all signs point to prices climbing even higher in the near future.

Purchasing and building a Colorado mountain home is increasingly attractive for a new generation of adventure seekers, second-homeowners, and growing families. With the increasing prices make it more difficult to build and own homes in the mountains, homeowners need to think outside of the box to make smarter, savvier decisions.

The scary reality for people is blowing their budget and contingency plan due to general contractors having no caps on their budget line items, leaving many overages. SmartPads homes are fixed bid. Your price is locked in.
