Beethoven would never have purchased a piano without first putting his hands on the keys. Coco Chanel would never have put a suit on the runway before she had worn it herself. Tiger Woods would never endorse a set of clubs without playing a few rounds with them prior to signing. Why should you buy a home before you have the opportunity to actually experience living in it? Resorts West has brought this concept to the Park City market with their Try the Fit Before You Commit program. Resorts West encourages their qualified potential buyers to spend five to seven days renting the home they think could be their dream-come-true. This gives buyers’ assurance that they’ve made the right choice before they sign a purchase contract.

One of the most enjoyable elements of searching for a new home is visualizing what living in it will be like. While it’s easy to tell if you love the esthetics of a house, just looking can’t inform you about all those little things that affect the pleasure of day-to-day life. Is the kitchen big enough for your whole family? Are there noisy neighbors? Does the water pressure and heating system work well enough for you? “Try on” your potential purchase by spending a meaningful amount of time living in it by renting first.

For sellers, the benefit of allowing a prospective buyer to spend a few nights will mean a faster sale. When purchasers feel they have done a more thorough study of a house, they’re far less likely to change their mind mid-transaction. Resorts West alleviates any potential risk on the seller’s part by pre-qualifying and insuring buyers.

For over 15 years, Resorts West has led the luxury accommodations market at all of Park City’s three world-class ski resorts. Their commitment to customer service and satisfaction has made them the go-to real estate experts in the area. Whether you’re looking for a primary home or convenient condominium, they have their finger on the market’s pulse.
