Condominium vs. Home: What Should You Buy?

Did you know that Okemo Mountain Resort offers one of the largest inventories of mountainside condominiums? In 1961, the resort began developing the popular ski-in/ski-out slopeside lodging complexes and they now have the most on-mountain accommodations. Purchasing a condominium has many advantages when it comes to owning a second home in the mountains. Here are just a few reasons you might consider purchasing a condo vs. a single-family home:

  • Amenities: The range of amenities such as swimming pools, gyms, clubhouses, outdoor spaces, and trailside access at the assorted complexes make weekend trips even more memorable. The convenient access without the need for you to do any maintenance is a homerun. Let us help you find the complex with the right amenities for you!


  • Maintenance: Leave the work to the management team responsible for plowing, shoveling, mowing, painting, and more. When you are buying a second home, it's important to consider the extra workload a single-family home might be. Choosing to purchase a condominium will save you time and effort so that you can focus on family time and ski adventures. 


  • Location: While there are several slopeside standalone homes on Okemo, there are far more options when you are searching for a slopeside condominium. At Okemo, the complexes even have their own trail for easy access and the resort typically favors opening these trails at the beginning of the ski season over others. Plus, some complexes are close to the local restaurants and on-mountain dining options!


  • Community: Every Okemo complex is its own neighborhood with a strong sense of community. There are plenty of social gatherings at the Ledgewood fire hut and the Winterplace pool house to name a few. Meeting and connecting with other ski enthusiasts make your ski trips that much more enjoyable!


  • Investment Potential: Condominiums often appreciate in value over time, especially if located in sought-after areas like Okemo. Additionally, if you decide to move or rent out your unit in the future, condominiums tend to have good rental potential, attracting tenants who value the amenities, security, and lifestyle associated with condo living.


Both full-time and part-time owners find that the perks and benefits make choosing the condo lifestyle a simple "yes!". The perks of living in a condominium can vary depending on the specific complex, which our agents are well aware of. Now, we will make it even easier by walking you through our current listings!
