Mountain Property for Sale in Colorado

Much of Colorado’s Mountain Properties and Land for Sale is located in the mountain counties on either side of the Continental Divide. Historically used as summer grazing land, hunting land, and recreational land, mountain property has become more and more sought after by locals and out of state buyers for recreational purposes.

Searching for mountain property for sale in Colorado can be one of the broadest or most specific property searches. Many clients we serve look for mountain property for a variety of reasons:

  • Hunting for Trophy Elk and Mule Deer
  • Recreation
  • Horseback riding
  • Cabins
  • Fly Fishing
  • Four Wheeling
  • Snowmobiling
  • Skiing

Knowing what you’re looking for will ultimately make your search for Colorado Mountain Land much easier. Just as there are countless mountain ranches from 100 to 10,000 acres, there are also mountain 35- and 40-acre subdivisions that offer more affordable mountain recreation properties. It’s important to factor in the access, proximity to town, terrain, altitude, and recent sales pricing in the areas.

In Colorado, to apply for Landowner hunting tags, a property owner must have over 160 contiguous acres to have preference in drawing hunting tags for elk, mule deer, bear, and more. We typically will see this as a large selling point for many of the ranches we sell. (LINK TO COLORADO RANCHES FOR SALE). Some mountain properties with large acreages will draw multiple tags and have the ability to sell these tags to the open market or to local outfitters.

Many things are important to consider when buying a mountain property. When consulting our clients on either buying or marketing a mountain property for sale, we will review:

  • Surveys and Boundary Lines
  • Water rights
    • Irrigation rights
    • Wells & Springs
