In Stowe Vermont it is apparent that ski season is just around the corner.  Now is the time of year where shops are changing out their wares, from summer goods to the latest and greatest ski apparel and equipment.  Not to go unnoticed are the changes to the ski area itself.  Get ready to tune your skis, because Stowe has made some great changes for the upcoming ski season!

The biggest change on the mountain is the replacement of the FourRunner chairlift.  A new high-speed, detachable quad chairlift will replace what has always been a favorite life at Stowe.  The new lift will be faster and have the ability to access more terrain, a true positive for Stowe skiers.

In addition to its new lift, a lot of work is completed each summer to spruce the mountain up and get it ready for the upcoming season. This winter promises to be a great ski season and we hope Stowe is in your plans this winter!

Stowe Vermont offers a great setting for a vacation home.  With a variety of activities available on a year round basis, our area offers a healthy lifestyle and a great place to get away from it all.  Contact us for more information on the upcoming ski season, as well as for access to all Stowe real estate that is currently listed for sale.

Student athletes work hard in Stowe Vermont to keep competing.  Stowe Vermont is no different than a plethora of towns across the nation, its various entities facing budget cuts in the wake of a shaky economy.  One of the toughest budgets for Stowe to balance has been its school budget and along the way certain items have been cut.  The cuts to sports teams have been tough, yet students have pulled together to support their passions.

Student athletes in Stowe, including runners and skiers, have worked extra hard to raise money to fund their teams which were cut from the school budget.  The alpine ski team needs to raise over $11,000 by the end of October in order to compete this coming ski season.  How are Stowe students raising funds?  They are looking for sponsorships from Stowe community members, selling goods like chocolate, services like chopping wood, and holding raffles. 

While the negative impact of having their teams cut from the budget is tough, it is not holding back the passion to compete, and these students are working hard to make sure that they can continue to partake in the sports they are interested in.  In a sense the Stowe students are building a stronger community spirit within their perspective sports by coming together to make it happen.

Stowe Real Estate, Understanding Property Taxes by John Biondolillo and Teresa Merelman, Stowe Realty

Most people buying Stowe real estate want to have a basic understanding of property taxes.  In many instances property taxes can affect real estate markets, often the lower the property taxes the more appealing an area can be to call home.  Likewise this year, with a struggling economy leaching into local government budgets, many tax increases are making their way onto ballots across the nation.  Stowe Vermont property taxes appear to cause confusion when it comes to spending on education in particular, and a recent article from the Stowe Reporter titled “Property tax report: Stowe about average” breaks down our local property taxes, exposing the basics and clarifying any misconceptions.

An interesting fact is that many people believe that homeowners in Stowe pay higher property taxes than other parts of Vermont.  According to the article Stowe property owners pay approximately $200 more than the state average, which is not a significant difference.  Another interesting feature of paying property taxes in Stowe relates to year-round residents, in that property taxes are linked to income rather than property values.  This can be extremely helpful for those struggling to make ends meet.

Stowe property taxes fall under two categories, those for year round residents, who pay homestead taxes, and those who are second homeowners and business owners, who pay non-homestead taxes.  While Stowe Vermont may appear wealthier in the tax collection department it may be worth mentioning that there is more luxury real estate in Stowe than in many parts of the state, and many more non-homestead taxes collected as well.
