TAKING A COUNTRY RETREAT ON A TEST DRIVE

Vacation Rental in a Pinot Noir Vineyard

Frequently country homes have been used for vacation rentals and one thing to consider in purchasing a country retreat property – particularly if you don’t really know the area well – is whether you should try and rent the property for a weekend and try it out.  It will help you get a sense of whether the property is right for you.  Does the property have enough seclusion – or too much;  is the property convenient to services you feel are important and is the travel time right.  It can also help you determine personal property items which you may want to include in the purchase price.  For example, including poolside furniture in the purchase price would allow you to take time in finding exactly the outdoor furniture you want without being pressured.  Including the riding mower will allow you to avoid shopping for a relatively complicated piece of machinery when you are trying to get settled in.  In many instances owners who have rented their country homes for vacation rentals do not have emotional ties to many of the furnishings and there is something to be said for being able to use a country property immediately upon close of escrow.
