I want to put it a heated driveway with pavers. Is this a good idea/investment..??The real market value of the home is 650,000 according to comps. Just purchased for 550,000. During housing bubble it was listed for 900,000$. (geez no wonder so many people got in trouble) The driveway is 1/8 mile unpaved. Elevation is 10,000 feet. Concrete will crack up here. Asphalt would need to be reapplied yearly due to plow damage at a cost of several thousand dollars. Plow service would be 150$ every snowstorm. Buying our own plow truck would be 2-5000 minimum. I'm a med student. He works 60+ hours a week. Neither one of us have time to plow a driveway. The driveway we want could cost 90,000$. Despite the personal need for a heated paved driveway, and the conditions of living in colorado at 10,000 feet with huge dumping snowfalls of a foot or more...and the fact that the pavers allow for suitable expansion and freeze during the 9 months of icy winter... And considering comps, would it be a smart for home equity to put this driveway in? There is no "norm" for driveways, everything from dirt washout to the heated pavers we want exist around us in the mountains. The home is upgraded on the inside including sleek modern bathrooms, a soundproof theater, 4 bedrooms, 5 baths, three car garage. Brand new IPO board decks off every entry and bedroom...Views across for hundreds of miles.. Outside is just unfinished dirt, and long dirt driveway. Almost looks like they ran out of money. So, with the house, comps, sale price, real market value all in mind, should we do it..??July 30 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
