There was skiing and riding this past weekend!

First tracks have already been made after 11" of fresh snow fell on the mountain, this past Saturday night.  So, might be time to think about grabbing those early ski and ride pass discounts offered.  If you're planning on skiing and riding at Stowe Mountain Resort, they offer many discounted options.  You will find many great deals, including young adult and college passes. These prices are only available until November 6, so don't delay. 

Another great option is the Vermont Travel Club Card.  Here you will find discounted lift tickets for individuals and families, at 11 Vermont ski resorts plus Sunday River in Maine. You can save up to $42 on some day lift tickets.

Pay $49 for one card or as low as $34 per card if you're buying a family membership. Typically the card pays for itself after its second or third use. Quantities limited, and rates go up December 1!

Here's to a snowy wintry winter, this year!

Are You Ready To Rent?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stowe, Vermont has always been a desirable destination for vacation, as well as for investing in real estate. Vail Resort's recent purchase of the Stowe Mountain Resort's ski operations has had an additional impact on growing interest in the area, year-round. Increased buyer demand, in many cases, includes the desire to rent which is a great way to generate income during the year when you, the homeowner, are not using the property yourself.

Stowe has seen condominium sales, as well as prices, rise since the news broke about Vail Resorts purchasing Stowe. If you are thinking about purchasing and renting, or perhaps you are already doing so, there are some important things you should know to ensure your and your renters safety, as well as any potential liability you may have when renting:

  • Make sure to contact your insurance agent to include extra coverage for renters
  • Make sure to have the proper smoke and carbon monoxide detectors installed.  In Vermont photoelectric smoke detectors are need to be in every sleeping room
  • A rental property falls under Vermont State safety requirements, so you will need to have a Fire and Safety inspection. For more information go to the State website here: http://firesafety.vermont.gov/

Please feel free to contact us any time regarding any questions you may have about anything that may relate to investing in properties, and/or renting.  The Town of Stowe is in the process of adopting some of these, and additional rules and regulations, so we can update you as well as guide you through this process, along with providing any key contacts to ensure your property is up to code and regulation.
