A typical Winter seasonal Rental (for the 6 month ski season) in a high quality location with access to the slopes goes for $12,000 plus utilities. I have a new condominium at south peak resort (on Loon Mt.) that wishes to rent full time. The local employment base doesn't allow for yearly rentals to be very high in price, but rewards shorter term rentals with excellent dollars per night.
For a little more than a six months rental, keep the place for the year and enjoy all four seasons in the beautiful White Mountains. My Clients live in North Carolina and wish to retain the place for retirement, but are far better off renting for $1,500/ month full time, than $2,000/ month in the winter, and short term in the Spring, Summer and Fall - even if the money is more in total.
Hundreds of Families rent for the winter and then pay daily rates to vacation in the Spring, Summer and Fall...this has become their resort of choice. Why not sign a lease and keep your recreational equipment here throughout the year. The one car Garage is perfect for bikes, Kayaks, float toys, fishing gear, hiking equipment and of course all the ski gear.
What does this Property offer during the non-ski season you may ask? Well the Brand spanking new place sits on the Pemigewasset River, just off the Kancamagus Scenic highway and is about one mile from the 720,000 acres White Mountain National Forest. The place has central A/C for the summer months, a gas fireplace, granite and stainless steel kitchen, and offers a outdoor hot-tub and fire pit at the edge of the swimming hole.
French doors lead to your private deck overlooking the river.
There is something about new Construction, it's clean and shiny .
Master bedroom with riverside views, Dinning /Living rooms with lots of glass, soaking tub & separate shower.
Walk to shopping, Movie Theatre, Resturants, The performing arts center, and the ski lifts in the winter.
How about a year-round vacation home with the owner paying the condo fees and taxes a great way to enjoy the life style till you can afford to buy your own...second home, try it before you buy it!!
