Hello everyone,

Me and my fiancé are currently in NY and are interested in Vermont.

We have just started our research, so bear with me.

Working: I'm going to be starting a career in Real Estate and she is going to be opening up a salon, so any big city would be preferable.

Living: We'd like to raise a family in a suburb outside of a city where we can have:

- A big yard (a few acres)
- House with (4 bedroom, 3 bathroom)
- Good schools & neighborhood where our kids could play outside without us worrying about busy roadschedule

This seems vague, but us being from NY we don't know a city/ suburb combo in VT, so we are open to anywhere in the state and will further our research with your suggestions

Thank you!

There are no big cities in VT. Burlington is the largest with about 42,000 people is all. The next tier cities are only half that, and they are the communities surrounding Burlington. It sounds like that is basically the area you want to go to. You can easily work in Burlington and live in the countryside given there isn't an endless sprawl such as you have in large metro areas. You can very quickly be in a small town, though the more populated immediate surrounding communities might be more what you are looking for.

Good luck on your search.

Acquaintances of mine who got into real estate in Vermont had full-time or part-time day jobs until they'd gotten enough experience to do it full time. If you know of anybody who's just leaving real estate in Vermont, you can probably get some sound information on how to break into it.

I love your first line... "any big city" that would be none.... Burlington would be the closest thing to a city. Also I would plan on re adjusting your idea of income. Starting two new business ventures in already crowded fields is going to be very tough when you first start out. As far as living, there is hardly a suburb ( don't think I have ever heard that term used in VT) as there is hardly a city. You could live in my town where you can't actually build on less then 2 acres. Everyone has a big yard. I get the sense you should come spend some time up here before the big move. I do hope you come and I hope you move here and love it, but Vermont may not be quite as you currently envision it. Best of luck

I agree with squarpeg. You are better off starting these business ventures in a place where the cost of living is not so high.
