HOW BRIAN HEAD CAN BENEFIT YOU by Paige Marsh
Brian Head, Utah, is the most popular ski resort destination in Southern Utah. People come from all around the region to stay and play. Brian Head offers not only downhill skiing, but snow-shoeing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing in the winter months; and hiking, mountain biking, fishing, four-wheeling, and day trips to nearby Zions and Bryce Canyons during the summer months.
The town of Brian Head has approximately 118 permanent residents. However, on any given weekend that population could multiply exponentially depending on the time of year. Brian Head is home to hundreds of cabins, and countless condos. With the mecca of attractions that Brian Head offers, owning one of these pieces of real estate could be quite profitable.
Condo’s carry a smaller purchase cost than do cabins in the area, however they do come with monthly HOA fees that should be taken into account. The fee depends upon the community and the size of the condo. They range generally from the mid $200’s and can go up to the high $600 range. This can seem extremely steep, however, you can also rent these units out for anywhere between $80 – 250 a night depending on the time of year AND day of the week. Renting the unit a few days a month can potentially pay the HOA fee for you. Many people like to purchase these units with cash so the only payment they have to worry about is the HOA fee.
Cabins carry a much higher purchase price; however you do not have an HOA fee to contend with. You can also rent these properties for much more than you do a condo. Cabins rentals will run anywhere from $250 – $425 a night again depending upon the time of year. One of the biggest attractions for rentals is how many people the property can sleep, so the more beds you have available, the more traffic and activity you will have with your rental.
