Searching for Mobile Homes for Sale in Vermont? Consider This First!

This makes a lot of sense, as the state is absolutely gorgeous, and a mobile home will be incredibly comfortable for 3 seasons out of the year. Even in the winter, a mobile home makes a great get-away location for a ski trip or for other mountain sports. Whether you live there year-round, keep a double-wide as a holiday home, or even rent the trailer out to other vacationers and travelers, mobile homes in Vermont are great investments. 

You should know, before you run off shopping for mobile homes Vermont is a truly unique place. Most people love it once they become familiar with what it has to offer, but you should get to know the state a little better before you decide to invest in a property there. 

Vermont is firmly set in New England, and even though most of the region is synonymous with the term the “Eastern Seaboard,” Vermont is the only state in New England which isn’t on the ocean. Perhaps this is for the best, though, as mobile homes in Vermont don’t have to deal with the weather coming right off the sea in the winter the way they do in truly Atlantic states. 

Vermont is a tiny state nestled between New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Quebec. It is surprising to think that it was, for a time, an independent sovereign nation all its own. Still, even for a small state it has more than its fair share of natural beauty, and mobile homes for sale in Vermont have a surprising variety of things to do within easy reach.

Shall we get to know the state in a bit more detail?

Top Five Reasons to Invest in Vermont Mobile Home Parks

Whether you are thinking of coming to live in Vermont, shopping for mobile homes in Vermont to use as a vacation property or simply investing in a trailer you can rent out, you should do a little research first. Some of these properties are extremely lucrative. Others are located conveniently to outdoor activities or one of the states’ few big cities. Others might not give you what you are looking for in a mobile home for sale in Vermont. 

That said, if you are looking at mobile homes Vermont has a lot to offer. For example, here are the “top 5 reasons” to move to Vermont:

  • The economy is great there. Vermont’s unemployment rate is very low (less than 4%), and their median household income is strong (at around $55,000). In a state where the average rental costs less than $900 a month, that all adds up to an excellent standard of living. 

  • Vermont has great schools. Some of the best schools and colleges in the nation can be found in Vermont, and a lot of its top universities are actually state schools. That means dramatically reduced cost of attendance for residents. 

  • The glories of nature. Every season of the year offers a different type of outdoor activities and sports. Whether you like biking, skiing, hand gliding camping or a relaxing walk in a safe city park, Vermont has all that and more. 

  • A safe place to live. Vermont’s crime rate is less than 100 per 100,000 residents. It also has excellent emergency service people and world-class hospitals for when accidents happen. 

  • Room to move, room to build. Only Wyoming has a lower population than Vermont, and Wyoming isn’t exactly convenient to NYC or Boston.

Vermont History in a Nutshell

The region that would come to be known as Vermont first felt the tread of humans some 12 thousand years ago. Much of that pre-history comes to us only through archeologists and storytellers, and we don’t know much about who lived there or what they did before around 1600 CE. Just before European contact, Vermont was mostly a part of the Iroquois Confederacy occupied by the Mohawk people. However, a part of what is now Vermont was the territory of the Abenaki tribe. 

It was not the English, or even the Dutch who founded the first European colony in Vermont – it was the French. However, the attempt to run “New France” in direct competition with New England would prove Unwise. It was one of many causes of the ‘7 Years War between the 2 great nations, and in 1763, the French had to cede their interests in the area to England. This, in turn, would see the French proving a key ally in the Revolutionary War, even if most of their motivation was making life harder for England. 

The end of the war with the French brought no peace to Vermont, though. Rival British colonies fought to control and settle the land, a process which would continue until the Vermont Republic declared itself an independent political entity in the lead up to the War of Independence. 

Vermont has always had a politically progressive streak, granting women’s suffrage, making slavery illegal, allowing civil unions and even gay marriage years before other states followed suit. Has this reputation for liberalism increased the demand for mobile homes? Vermont mobile home parks are a thriving industry today, so it can’t have hurt.

 The University of Vermont in Burlington

Vermont is known for the high quality of its schools, colleges and universities. In fact, many of the mobile homes for sale in Vermont are located conveniently close to one school or another, and can be an excellent place to find student housing. Even if there is a requirement not to live in certain Vermont mobile home parks full time, this can be fulfilled by making the trip home over the winter holidays or in the summer. 

Other mobile homes Vermont young people frequent are seen as places to start building a family, working up equity to buy a larger home later. After all, a good educational system is one of the most important factors when deciding where to raise children. 

So, what schools should you be most interested in? That depends on your own interests and budget. However, a short list of the best might include:

The University of Vermont in Burlington is what is known as a “Public Ivy League” school. It is a state university with all of the reputation for excellence that private Ivy League schools offer, but a dramatically lower price. Better still, because it is a state school, Vermont residents pay even less than out-of-state students. That adds up to a pittance compared to what nearby Harvard or Yale charge. 

Castleton University has been a cornerstone of Vermont culture for more than 230 years. It was founded way back in 1787, and still only takes in less than 2000 undergraduate students every year. This commitment to the small school experience seems to be paying off, as Castleton ranks a remarkable 26th among regional colleges. It is an inexpensive school to attend full stop, but it is also a state school and that means in-state tuition is even less expensive. 

Middlebury College is the number 9 liberal arts college in all of the US. That means you can get a world-class education in Biology and Environmental Studies, Political Science, Computer Science, and more.

Vermont is full of popular travel destinations. People come to the state to ski in the winter, take family holidays exploring the revolutionary and civil war history of the state, camping and fish in the spring, summer and fall, etc. As a result, many of the mobile homes in Vermont have been adapted for use by holidaymakers and can be rented out by the week. Many of the mobile homes for sale in Vermont are intended more for the ‘“Airbnb crowd” than for family holidays or hunting trips.
