It’s an option that will allow you to ride out the stormy housing conditions and build equity in your home–with other peoples’ money. Why sell when you don’t have to?

The site currently boasts just three Stonington vacation rentals, which would be a boon to your home if the price is right, the photos sparkle and you distinguish why your home is better than the rest. The vacation rental pictured, for example, trumpets its nearness to two private beaches and a ball park, huge selling points for families.
