“It's great to reminisce about good memories of my past. It was enjoyable when it was today. So learning to enjoy today has two benefits: it gives me happiness right now, and it becomes a good memory later.” George Foreman
We entered the Real Estate business as investors back in 2012 when an opportunity presented itself in Bartlett, NH. We stayed at the Seasons renting a place through a wonderful owner in May of that year and then during the weekend of our stay, we started thinking, “if we are going to be visiting Storyland, Santa’s Village and other places nearby regulary/each year, why not own a place?” So we went about researching the area and started looking at places that summer. We worked with a great realtor (Dan Jones of Remax in Conway) and he helped us negotiate a purchase of a unit at the Seasons, closing in September of 2012. The benefits at the time of owning this condo included the Seasons (seasonsnh.com), the aforementioned surrounding area, the opportunity that renting the unit would help in paying the mortgage and the hope that we would see appreciation in an area that was not seeing any at that point – thanks to bad winters for snow (hurting ski season) and a massive amount of inventory.
“The Surprise is that you continue to get surprised.” Jill A Davis
Surprise comes in funny ways though. If you were to ask me today why we should own this place, I would have a different set of reasons that never even occurred to me a few years ago! They are not financial but more emotional.
