Advice on renting a house I'm going to build in a ski area as a retirement home.

Asked by Thomas M. Deboni, Oakland, CA Sun Sep 30, 2007

What's the chances that a house I'm planning to build in a ski area for around $350K could rent to skiers enough of the '08-'09 and '09-'10 ski seasons to pay some of its mortgage during that time. It'll be built by fall of 08, but I'm not planning to move in until fall of '10, Until then, my wife and I will be carrying two mortgages, and I'd like as much relief as I can get.

I googled for property management firms that will professionally look after your property in the Angel Fire area and there are many so you might want to do the same.
When contacting some of these firms ask for referrals of other property owners who have a similar situation to yours and find out the good the bad and the ugly.
In any event you do need to find out what all the laws are relating to rentals even though the rental company should adhere to them. To that end you might want to check these links
Best of luck
