Are you looking for a primary residence to live in year round or a vacation home? Some of the homes and areas in the Vail Valley will work as a vacation home if you are looking to rent when you are not in residence.  I lived in and was a past president of the HOA at Villas At Brett Ranch. I think it's a great place to live but not sure it will make a great vacation rental. The river front location offers some great private fishing. This community has a summer time pool and a year around hot tub. Those looking for a garage you can't beat the value this community offers.  

Image titleOn the other hand the home on Eagle Dr in  Eagle Vail would work as a primary or rental with its location between Vail and Beaver Creek resorts.  Speaking of Eagle Vail, there is a 2 bedroom coming to market in Sunriver nicely updated with new quartz counter top and paint being installed this month. Offered for $465K fully furnished. This home would make a great primary or vacation home.This complex like Brett Ranch has a summer time pool and a year around hot tub but the location lends itself to local or vacation home living. 
Image titleAlso in Eagle Vail a 2 bedroom at Mountain Stream will be coming to market under $400k and updated as well. Remember Mtn Stream does not allow rentals less than 30 days making this community a good long term rental or for those not looking to rent vacation style. 
In the Homestead community of Edwards coming to market in the mid $400;s  will be a 2 bedroom 2.5 bath  town home with a garage, Great location next to the Homestead Court Club with all its amenities which all owners and guest get use of.  No rental restrictions here!
Image titleLastly two home in the Avon Lake Villas community of Avon will be coming to market in fact the 2 bedroom later today at $459k  This complex is an amenity packed resort setting with year around pool and hot tub and sauna. Summer time tennis courts and winter private shuttle service to skiing at Vail and Beaver Creek. The other offering coming in this complex is a 2 bedroom plus den 3 bathroom. Price is unknown at this time but likely in the low $500's
