Vacasa Ranks the Top Ten Places to Buy a Ski Home for 2022

By

Looking to buy a winter vacation home? Vacasa released its annual list of the ten best places for your dream ski home. The website did their rankings via the highest market cap rate. According to Investopedia, a cap rate is defined as the “rate of return on a real estate investment property based on the income that the property is expected to generate.” The median home cost (the middle number in the data set regarding real estate sales in the town) is also shown to give readers a perspective on which places are more expensive than others. Outside of Chelan, Big Bear, and Big Sky, not a lot of West Coast ski towns make the list of the rising demand and median home costs. The East Coast definitely was a big winner on the list, with destinations like Conway, the Poconos, and Newry making the list. You can view their 2020-21 list here, which features some bigger West Coast names. Here are the top ten for 2022:
