Well, it’s spring break here in Cloudcroft, and while lots of college kids are blowing off steam at beaches in Florida, Texas and Mexico, we’re pretty happy to relax amid all this gorgeous mountain scenery. Don’t get me wrong—sun, sand, and beer are fun and all, but for my money, nothing beats a glass of wine on a porch, surrounded by nature—I guess I just like the peace and quiet.
If you’re looking for the kind of peace and quiet that only a mountain cabin can provide, now’s a great time to look into buying a vacation home. New Mexico real estate is kind of a buyer’s market right now; interest rates are at an all time low, and home values are still about 25% less than they were five or six years ago. As the economy continues to recover, home prices are going to climb, so if you’re interested in a vacation home for your family to enjoy for years or want a solid investment to hang onto when the market gets hits an upswing, you can’t go wrong by buying a New Mexico vacation property right now.
Still, purchasing a vacation home might sound a little daunting, which is why we suggest trying before you buy—we have plenty of properties available for rent, so if you find that mountain living might not be your cup of tea, you’re not stuck with another house you’ll have to sell. Sipping chardonnay on the porch listening to the birds might sound great to me, but maybe you’d rather be at a beach with a Corona. Either way, give mountain living a try with a little staycation in a rental; if you fall in love with Cloudcroft’s scenery, its boutiques, and its small-town charm, we’ll be happy to help you find the New Mexico vacation home of your dreams.
