  2. Trillium Place is pet friendly! Your furry friend can come with you on your mountain vacation.
  3. Everything is minutes away. You’re just a shuttle ride away from shopping at the Mountain Inn, listening to live music at The Edge, and flying through the skies on The Zip.
  4. Its units are spacious. Trillium Place townhomes range from 1,391 to 2,445 sq.ft., larger than most townhomes at Wintergreen Resort.

What You Haven’t Considered About Owning a Vacation Home

Wouldn’t it be great to own a place at the beach, in the mountains, or by the lake? If you are seriously considering buying a vacation home, you have probably weighed many of the pros and cons already.

But you should carefully consider everything before you buy a vacation home. Have you taken these additional costs and benefits into account?

The Overlooked Costs of Homeownership

As any experienced home buyer knows, there are additional annual costs that come with owning a home, such as property taxes, home insurance, and any association fees.

Make sure you consider maintenance costs, as well. If you decide to rent out your property, you might want to invest in housekeeping or property management services. MarketWatch outlines a few additional costs you may face.

Additional Fun: Resort-Style Amenities

This gives you access to a range of award winning amenities that include two golf courses, spa services, skiing, winter sports, tennis, swimming pools, and dozens of events. For more details, visit Wintergreen Resort.

Just remember, you may have to pay additional fees for these amenities.

It’s a Good Investment, But Not a Guaranteed Money Maker

Many vacation homeowners rent their property out to other vacation-goers as a way to earn extra money.

But, as US News & World Report points out, you may not always make money with your vacation home.

Location is Crucial

picking a locationWhen buying any property, whether it’s a primary or second home, location is one of the most important factors in your decision. When choosing a vacation home, consider how much time it will take to get to your home, whether you will need to drive or fly, and if you will be able to visit as often as you want.

You should choose a home that is close to your favorite vacation features (such as a ski resort or private beach) and close to the grocery store, major roads or an airport, and fun things to do.
