Home Away from Home - Winter Getaways in Vermont!

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS

Vermont is a ski and snowboarder's dream! Our state may be small, but when it comes to ski resorts, we don’t fall short of incredible locations. Vermont offers some of the best downhill skiing and snowboarding experiences in the country. From the big-slope options like, Stowe or Killington/Pico to the small Vermont mountains, we have something for everyone. Check out our full list of resorts here


Live here full time and enjoy the slopes throughout the season or visit us on the weekends for a fun getaway. Do you love visiting for a day on the slopes but hate having to stay in a hotel every night all cramped with the kids? Does it get expensive to pay for the ski pass, hotel and eating out all weekend? We have the perfect solution to make your weekends in Vermont optional. Buy a vacation home, block off the weekends you want to be here and rent it for the rest of the year!

No more checking into hotels, eating at restaurants all weekend bcause you are lacking a kitchen, storing your gear in the car because you don’t have space in your room, and worrying about being too noisy after quiet hours!

 

Let us find you the perfect getaway! Pay for your ski weekends with the income from your rental. Conditions are great here, what are you waiting for?

Let’s make Vermont your home away from home. ‚Äč

Benefits of Buying vs. Renting

by Nancy Jenkins, CRB, CRS


Are you currently renting? There are many benefits to buying your own home. Most people are nervous about making the steps to own their first home. In today's market there are great opportunities out there for buyers and we at Nancy Jenkins Real Estate are ready to help put you in the perfect home. 

Paying your rent only pays for the current month you are in. You could be putting that money towards something of your own. A mortgage payment is a long term investment in a home of your own. Rental rates fluctuate, usually increasing every year, once you secure a mortgage, you can rely on consistent payments, if you have a fixed-rate loan

Buying also gives you stability, not having to worry about when you will be moving again. It allows you the freedom to make the home yours; paint the living room the color that matches your favorite couch, replace that vanity in the bathroom, don't be afraid to put that hole in the wall to hang your new television. When you rent, your landlord and the terms of your lease restrict you. Buying your own home can mean you can have that dog you've always wanted. 

Have you always thought about buying but the thought of keeping up the maintenance doesn't appeal to you? Perhaps a condominium is the right answer for you. Although you pay a low monthly association fee, most of the time exterior maintenance is covered. Some condo associations come with additional benefits such as a community pool, tennis courts or common acreage. This can be the perfect middle step if you aren't ready for all of the responsibilities of keeping up with your own home. 

Do you not think you can afford a home yet? There are many great loan programs currently out there with low interest rates. One of the great members of the Nancy Jenkins Team can help set you up with the right lender and put you in that dream home that you can finally call your own. No more throwing away your money every month on rent, let us help you turn that into a long term investment. 

Our team has the knowledge to help guide you through, what some think of as a stressful process. Read about what some of our clients have said about us and see how we can help make this an enjoyable experience. Call us today and we can help you find your dream home! 802-846-4888
