Did you know that 75 percent of the homes in Valley County are second homes? There are lots of good points about that statistic.
- People like to be here and choose this area for their recreation and relaxation. They smile a lot.
- Emergency services and schools are strained less by part-time residents.
- Second homeowners are unable to take advantage of the Primary Homeowner’s Tax Exemption. This is a tremendous help with our limited Valley County tax base — and we thank you!
- Part-time residents bring energy, ideas, and life to our small communities. They tend to be wonderful neighbors.
