to Beat the Rising Cost of Living
The mayors of three upstate towns have combined resources and formed a Cultural and Economic Corridor. The Eagle River Valley Corridor comprises the towns of Hancock, Deposit and Windsor, New York. The three municipalities have packaged an exciting program offering many opportunities for retirees, entrepreneurs and young families. This picturesque region, set in the Delaware and Susquehanna River basins, offers immediate, affordably-priced housing, low property taxes, and outstanding educational, recreational, and health care advantages.
aking ends meet is becoming more challenging every day, and will probably get worse for ourselves and certainly for our children. We are all dealing with the rising cost of taxes, utilities, food, gas, and medical and insurance costs, with no end in sight. That’s not to mention the frustration of time lost on crowed roads and highways, pollution of our air and beaches, and the destructive climate changes that have sadly affected so many people’s lives along our coast. That’s why it’s important for us to know about alternatives that offer a way to overcome these challenges without the need to downsize or reduce the standard of living that we’ve worked so hard to achieve.
For the retiree or empty nester, the Eagle River Valley Corridor offers great buys for lovely & affordable housing or second homes. The advantages of relocating to the Eagle River Valley Corridor can mean a retirement with lower fixed costs and more disposable income to do some of the things you’ve always dreamed of. The difference in the selling price of your Metropolitan area home and a similar home in the Eagle River Valley Corridor can be as much as 50-75% less.
