Considerations for log homes for sale or cabins for sale:
1. Location, location, location
A lot of this depends on what kind of recreation you plan on getting into. Log Cabins evoke a sense of privacy and intimacy with nature, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Are you looking to get away? Are you looking to be close to town, you just love the woodsy feel? Is this going to be a weekend home? Swimming, hunting, kayaking, hiking? Location and site will be the determining factor for all of these activities, and it’s best to let your Realtor know what you want to use the property for beforehand. Knowing this makes it possible for the agent to pick out properties that best suit your recreational desires.
How cozy you want to be with who you sneak away with is essential as well. Also, do you plan on inviting extended family or friends out the cabin as well? Plan on accommodating these people as well, if it’s infrequent, you may just want enough living space that you can fit a few fold-out couches. If you think you are going to be a host reasonably often, then add in desired bedrooms appropriately into your total amount. Think about the square footage of your own home as well, and what range of square footage you think would work best for your cabin. Having this well thought out will help your Virginia Realtor get off to a quick and successful search.
3. Price Range
The log cabin might be your new home, retirement home or second home, whatever it is, be reasonable in your price range. If it is not your primary home, you could think about renting it out via Airbnb to earn income on the property while you aren’t there. While this isn’t for everyone, it might pay the mortgage on the property if that is something that interests you. If that is the case, be sure to research AirBnB’s and lodging around the area you’re seeking to be fully aware of the market.
Virginia is an absolutely breathtaking state. From the east to the west the great outdoors is something we Virginians love to enjoy every inch of. Hiking, swimming, hunting, climbing – you name it, we do it. The Blue Ridge Mountains, the Appalachian Trail, Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge Parkway are just a few things we hold dear. We like to think we’ve got it all, the views, the mountains, the weather. Speaking of the weather, we’re not too north to give you crazy winters, and not too south to get too hot in the summer. From anywhere in the state you can reach the mountains, or a beach, or a winery for that matter in no time flat.
If you have a specific desires in mind, be sure to let us know as we begin the search for your future log home.
