Snowbirds really have it made in the shade! The ability to escape the rough and tumble winter months that batter and bruise the northeast is perhaps one of the greatest benefits of retirement. Oh, that and not having to face the daily grind of the workday life.
But committing to a southern migration each and every year is not without its headaches. When you have to maintain two residences—your new sun-drenched home and your old, chilly northern abode—you’re strapped with the expensive and time-consuming stressors of living in two places at once. While you’re somewhere along the sunbelt, perhaps Florida or Arizona, your northern home is there, in need of heat, yardwork, and other forms of attention required by Long Island homes during the wintertime.
Somehow, some way, you must manage your northern home while trying to better your golf game or finish that bestselling novel. If you still have family living nearby your Long Island home, you should probably have them on speed dial so they can swoop in and take care of anything that comes up on a moment’s notice. And by the way, you’ll still have to pay property taxes on your Long Island home, too.
A Hotel Stay For Snowbirds
Why continue to deal with the problems of a northeast home when you don’t have to? The financial burden of home ownership is too much during those precious retirement years—and if you do decide to sell your northern home, you relieve financial concerns, like property tax pressure, and also alleviate the worries involved in maintaining a home you’re only living in for a portion of the year.
Of course, there’s a reason you’re a snowbird and not a permanent resident of your southern location, right? You choose to maintain a place to live up north because you want to maintain family ties or keep up on old friends or even to keep supporting local businesses when you’re in town. These are all great reasons to nurture your hometown roots.
As such, a less permanent living solution might be the answer—specifically, we’re talking about a snowbird stay at the Inn at Fox Hollow. A boutique hotel like the Inn at Fox Hollow is not merely for business travelers or locals attending a wedding. Yes, selling your home can be difficult and time consuming, but we firmly believe that if you choose to do so, it can be one of the most freeing decisions of your life.
