Fountains Land Expands Rural Homes Marketing in Vermont

April 07, 2017

Fountains Land has been known for marketing rural land for over three decades. Whether it’s timberland, multi-purpose land or the occasional rural home, our expertise is with all things land and how to get it sold.

In Vermont, Fountains is now expanding its expertise to include more rural homes – houses with 50 or more acres of land. These properties have two distinct sets of assets – the house and the land. Each has a stand-alone value (as if the other wasn’t there) and a combined value where they exist together. Setting the right list price for these properties requires careful analysis of all of the property’s attributes and the comparable sales in the region. Fountains’ 30 years of experience valuing a range of rural properties brings perspective and confidence to our recommended prices.

At the center of Fountains’ Vermont expansion into rural homes is Alisa Darmstadt. While not new to Fountains (she is the company’s marketing manager), Alisa, will lead Fountains’ Vermont Rural Homes division as licensed Salesperson.

Alisa grew up in Vermont, part of an active family that enjoyed exploring the outdoors in Vermont and beyond. She graduated from Hampshire College with a concentration in ecology and anthropology. For her undergraduate thesis, she studied at Harvard Forest mapping patterns of land conservation. Later, Alisa developed an interest in other kinds of patterns and delved into interior decorating. She ran her own consulting decorating business for six years before joining the Montpelier office of Fountains Land.

Alisa brings to her work as a rural home specialist her understanding of natural resources; her passion for the forest, fields and mountains of Vermont; and her experience with homes of all types through her interior decorating business. In addition, Alisa is certified in real estate staging, so she can provide professional advice on how to prepare a home for showings. Alisa’s unique experience complements Fountains’ broad marketing capability to help buyers and sellers of Vermont rural homes achieve their goals.

If you follow our website, keep your eye out for more rural homes. If you own one of these special properties, or know someone else who does, consider contacting us to see how we can help you realize the full value of both your home and your land.
