A Vacation Home ~ 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

golf course at sunriseIn popular vacation destinations, such as Wintergreen, you can purchase a second home in a resort community. 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.

We Can Help You Weigh Your Options

Investing in a vacation home can be a great decision, but it should not be taken lightly. We can answer any questions you have about finding, buying, or renting out Wintergreen Real Estate. Contact Us and let’s talk.

Invest and Buy a Home (or Two) ~ Wintergreen Resort

GREEN-COINS

Invest and buy a home …or two

Three years ago, John Paulson gave a keynote address at the CNBC/Institutional Investor Conference. In his speech, he told those in attendance that he believes housing will continue its strong recovery for the next 4 to 7 years, saying that:

“The housing market has bottomed. It’s not too late to get involved. I still think buying a home is the best investment any individual can make. Affordability is still at an all-time high.”

When asked how the average person could take advantage of the current real estate market and invest at the time, Paulson said:

“Invest and Buy a home and, if you can, buy a second home.”

Two years ago, Paulson reiterated his statement, saying:

“I still think, from an individual perspective, the best deal investment you can make is to buy a primary residence that you’re the owner-occupier of.”

Who is John Paulson and why should you listen to him?

Paulson is the person who, back in 2005 & 2006, made a fortune betting that the subprime mortgage mess would cause the real estate market to collapse. He understands how the housing market works and knows when to buy and when to sell.

What do others think of Paulson?

According to Forbes, John Paulson is:

“A multibillionaire hedge fund operator and the investment genius.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, Paulson is:

“A hedge fund tycoon who made his name, and a fortune, betting against subprime mortgages when no one else even knew what they were.” 

So… Is what he said still true? Should we invest?

The core reasons behind Paulson’s statements still ring true today! invest!  Why does he believe homeownership is such a great investment?

Paulson broke down the math of homeownership as an investment:

1. “Today financing costs are extraordinarily low.”

The latest numbers from Freddie Mac show us that you can still get a 30-year mortgage at historically low rates of under 4%.

2. “And if you put down, let’s say, 10 percent and the house is up 5 percent,” as many experts predict, “then you would be up 50 percent on your investment.”

How many are seeing a 50% return on a cash investment right now?

Paulson goes on to compare the long term financial benefits of owning versus renting:

3. “And you’ve locked in the cost over the next 30 years. And today the cost of owning is somewhat less than the cost of renting. And if you rent, the rent goes up every year. But if you buy a 30-year mortgage, the cost is fixed.”

Bottom Line

Whenever a billionaire gives investment advice, people usually clamor to hear it. This billionaire gave simple advice – if you don’t yet live in your own home, go buy one!

Black Bears at Wintergreen?

Black bears. Be aware they can look very cute!

Black Bears. This cub looks so cute!

Are there Black Bears at Wintergreen?

Black bears do live in the mountains in this area. Do you think Black Bears scary?  Most people would probably answer yes to this question initially. However, as with any wild animals, as you learn more about them you realize they are not, in general, a danger to you. In fact the Black Bears are more scared of people and will tend to take off quickly if they hear people around. Usually, the black bears, with their amazing hearing, will hear people approaching and they will take off out of the way. You may not even see the bear as he disappears back into the woods.

Black Bear Cubs look Cute and Cuddly.

Black Bear cubs may look cute and cuddly, however keep in mind that a very possessive mother bear is likely to be near by. She will not take kindly to anyone coming between her and her cubs. This is a situation most experienced hikers know to avoid. Otherwise, in general, as long as you make a noise to let the bear know you are around (singing, talking, etc), they will usually stay well clear.

Never Feed Black Bears!

Black bears are highly intelligent  animals with an incredible sense of smell. They can smell potential food sources over great distances. They are opportunists, always looking for easy calories. This often leads hungry bears to dumpsters, garbage cans, or kitchens. When bears learn that garbage means food, they come back to it again and again. learning to associate humans and homes with food. Sadly this usually ends with the “problem bear” being euthanized. Thus leaving food around outside is a definite no!  Never leave food/garbage outside. Wintergreen is a Bear Smart community.

The Nature Center can Help

The knowledgable folks at the Nature Center can help teach you proper “bear behavior,” Learning that we are invading the bears natural habitat is important. However, it is possible to live in harmony if we make an effort and follow the basic wild animal ground rules. TWNF teaches ways to react and behave around these and other animals should you meet any on the trails. There are “bear bells” some people take on hikes so the bears will hear them approaching. The TWNF has new New Resident Orientation talks if you are going to live on the mountain.
