INVESTING IN VAIL
Barron’s ranked Vail Resorts’ Colorado ski areas fifth in the “20 best places for second homes,” succinctly stating why we are well positioned for continuing success in the years ahead.
Summer is typically the height of our inventory accumulation cycle where tier 1 inventory sells in July, tier 2 in August, tier 3 in September, and the leftovers carrying over to the following ski season. With stock market valuations setting all-time record highs, investors have been reluctant to redeploy capital, but as returns slow and profit-taking occurs, capital preservation asset classes are back in favor. This includes world class resort real estate that delivers lifestyle dividends in addition to financial performance.
In combination with baby boomer demographics, a highly affluent customer base, an expanding international clientele, and the expenditure of more than four billion dollars in ski villages the size of postage stamps, the stage is set for continued long-term 5% rate of appreciation, supporting the premise that you can have fun and make money if you know how to go about it.
While the obligations and negative cash flow aspects of ownership can sometimes be burdensome, the numbers still work as illustrated in our Investment Performance breakdown.
