This Christmas at Stratton was very busy with lots of people who came to enjoy a wonderful holiday season. We rented more vaction rentals this holidays that ever before. Late one afternoon, a nice family came knocing on our door. They had found a beautiful home on Craigs list and sent the "owner" $6000 for rental. The house on Craigs list is a beautiful property that is listed for sale in excess of $2 million dollars on Realor.com and other sale websites including our own. Should it be for short term rent it would be $2000. a night or $12to $14,000 for the holiday week. The tenants went and knocked on the door to find that the house was NOT for rent and their $6000 lost. Unfortunately, we were sold out and were unable to help them. A good reason to not try to save money by not going through a reputable company.
The market seems to be heating up with lots of appointments and properties are getting offers and going under contract. Prices are still very competitive and now is a good time to look and buy.
