Information on Condominiums for Sale in The Canyons Village:
Every property in The Canyons Village has something different to offer. Pendry will soon be the be added to the list of subdivision in the area which is expected to open in 2021. While many of the properties are traditional condos the are several condo hotels which include Lift, Waldorf Astoria, Hyatt, Escala Lodge, Sundial Lodge, Silverado, Westgate, and The Grand Summit. It should be noted that condo hotel financing is different than traditional financing and they may require 25%-30% down but do not worry because there are some lenders that can provide Fannie Mae program on specific properties. My career in real estate started in mortgage financing and I ensure my clients speak with the best lenders available for this specific product type. It's always good to work with a lender that understands the nuances of The Canyons Village because there are nightly rentals which a traditional lender may not be familiar with and your loan may not be structured correctly.

My Favorite Condominiums in The Canyons Village
If you're looking to buy a condominium at The Canyons Village in Park City I'd like to offer a little insight - always feel free to contact me with any questions regarding Park City real estate. If I were looking for a condo in the Canyons simply based off location and wanted to keep the price down I'd look into the Sundial Lodge because it's essentially ski-in-ski-out at a great price. For new construction, I'd recommend The Lift if you want to be in the middle of The Canyons Village and easily access all the summer activities as well - Apex would be close behind depending on the unit's views and value. I also really like the Fairway Springs Ski and Golf Villas Condominiums because of the views, they are close to skiing, but you aren't necessarily in the hub, and I think they work well for long extended stays in Park City. If I were looking for a condo that was going to be turnkey with strong rentals that I could buy today I'd look into The Waldorf Astoria.
Why Buy a Condominiums in The Canyons?
Real Estate in Park City, Utah offers many advantages over other ski towns. The ease of access is the number one factor which allows my clients from all over the nation (or world but less than 1% of our owners are international) to decide to buy a vacation property here. For the sake of the paragraph let's say you've already decided to purchase a condo in the best ski-town in America and now you are trying to drill down to find where you really want to own a condo in Park City. The Canyons is the closest ski property once you get off the freeway and is conveniently located between Kimball Junction and Old Town for additional entertainment and dining. There are properties that work well for long-term living such as Fairway Springs or Frostwood Villas that allow for bigger groups to come and stay in one property rather than renting several units. If you would like something for only two people and plan on renting a few extra units when others come with you to Park City the Waldorf, Hyatt Centric Park City, Lift, etc. that is a great option. The Canyons Village offers more newly built condos than any other area of town - so if you're looking for something new and fresh, you've found your spot! The Canyons is hard to beat if you have skiers and snowboarders in your group that would appreciate a ski-condo that is centrally located and great for all four seasons!
