A spreadsheet is available that allows you to compare the daily rental of the ParkCityTownhome (PCTH) with other condominiums by features. All you need to do is assign dollar adjustments for another unit in comparison to the PCTH for each item that is more or less important to you.
For instance, how much more you would be willing to pay have a hot tub or washer/dryer in the PCTH compared to a unit without these items? The hot tub may be worth $25/per night more to you than a unit without, but a washer/dryer may be unimportant and would therefore receive no adjustment. Once these items are inputted in the table and added together, it is easy to see if the PCTH or another condo unit has a lower rent, and therefore the better value for your needs.
Please view and print the table for Park Ave Unit 1785 or Park Ave Unit 1783.

We dare you to try this comparison! When you consider all the additional features the ParkCityTownhome has over other units, or just consider what several of these features add to the rental value, you will readily see that it is a great deal. And, if you value most of the additional features of the PCTH, you will see it can be a true bargain despite its rental amount that may at first seem to be a little high.
If you decide to take our challenge, a little discussion about certain categories in the comparison table is helpful. The most important category and the first item on the table is the number of bedrooms (BRs) and baths (BAs) in a unit. In winter, there is a normal relation of about $60 to $80 per person for two to four bedroom unit, that may decline a little as it approaches four bedrooms. The difference is can be about $100 to $150 per bedroom. Therefore, in comparing a 2BR to the 3BR PCTH you may need to add, or deduct $125 if the comparison unit is a 2BR or $BR, respectively.
Another factor is the number and type of beds. Having 3 king beds in a 3BR unit is fine for 3 couples, but six single adults may stongly prefer two beds in each room. Since the PCTH has a queen and twin in two bedrooms, a queen in a third, and a sleeper sofa, it may help accomodate at least one more single adult and worth about another $70, for example.
Some people do not want to worry about a car on their vacation, and therefore need an excellent location that is within walking distance of the slopes or shopping, and close to a bus stop. This may be worth a certain portion of the total cost of a car rental that could be $35 to $100 daily. Others may want to fall out of their unit and ski, and will pay a premium that can be higher than a more convenient location. In any event, location with respect to the slopes and transportation can be very important.
Especially in the winter, many renters want a private hot tub. It may be worth an extra $5 to $10 per person per night, or easily $20 to $60 more nightly. A fireplace is another item that many people would gladly pay a little more per night. There are numerous other features that someone would pay more for, such as a a washer/dryer, boot dryer, covered parking near the entrance, tv's in every bedroom, a home theater, an outdoor grill, etc. Be your own judge and decide what is important to you and your group on a dollar value basis when you use our "Dare to Compare" table.
