Investing in an RV - Homeowners - CB Prime Properties

An RV is a big investment, but it can make a lot of sense for those who want to travel a lot. Traveling in an RV can save as much as two-thirds of the costs of regular travel since you'll be skipping everything from airfare and hotel to expensive restaurant meals all the time. Perhaps even more compelling right now, RV travel is a way to travel without exposing yourself to people and spaces out of your control.

That's not to say that owning an RV is completely carefree. There are a lot of expenses associated with an RV, not to mention a couple of questions you might want to bring up with our real estate agents while you're looking for the sticks-and-bricks home where you'll spend the rest of your time.

Here are a few things to consider when deciding whether to invest in an RV.

Scary Stories - Capital Region - CB Prime Properties

October is the ideal time to explore the settings of local ghost stories, and the Capital Region of NY has many spooky tales to discover. You can explore supposedly haunted places on your own or sign up for an organized tour to hear the stories of ghostly encounters.

Our real estate agents share these scary stories and ghostly tours around the Capital Region.

  1. The New York State Capitol Building – Albany, NY 12207
    The New York State Capitol Building, located near Albany homes for sale, looks like a gothic cathedral or castle, so it's not surprising that it's associated with many ghostly happenings. The capitol supposedly had a ghostly origin when a curse was put on the building by stone carvers. Legend has it that you can see a demon face across from room 174 and hear the jingling keys of a night watchman, who died in a fire in the building's library hallway in 1911. Capitol Hauntings Tours are held in October if you'd like to hear more tales and hope to spot a ghost.

Fall Getaway - Adirondack Region - CB Prime Properties

There's just nothing quite like the Adirondacks in fall. The mountains roar to life with color this time of year, and the quiet mountain towns of the Adirondacks are prime for a fall getaway. Our real estate agents are excited to share some of our favorite destinations. Whether your idea of a vacation is leaf-peeping, mountain climbing, or sipping craft beer at a local brewery, these ADK towns are the place to be this fall.


Fall Home Repair - CB Prime Properties

There is nothing worse than having to put on the tool belt and perform home repairs in the dead of winter. Our real estate agents suggest getting a jump on those last-minute home repairs before the last leaf hits the ground this autumn. It is not only a great way to avoid frosty fingers and toes, but it is also the best way to ensure your home is protected from the wind, rain, snow, and sleet that Mother Nature is likely to deliver when winter arrives.

  1. Disconnect Your Hoses, Faucets, and Sprinklers. The sooner you take care of this, the better. Surprise frosts can and do occur in the region. Disconnecting hoses and faucets and blowing out your sprinklers is essential for protecting your plumbing system.
