How to Find Your Ideal Vacation Home

May 21, 2019

 | 

If you need a more permanent place to take a respite, or you are thinking about having a familiar place to go for family getaways, a vacation home is a great option.

 

When purchasing a vacation home, consider how you will use it. Will your vacation home be reserved for just family and friends?  How many times per year will you use the home? Are you going to rent it out? The answers to these questions will help focus your search.

 

Think about location. Consider your vacation home’s proximity to amenities. Also, if you will use it several times throughout the year, aim for a location that’s close enough to drive but far enough to feel like a real getaway. Ask yourself, is it close to amenities? Far enough from home? Will it keep you and others wanting to come back? If you are planning to rent out the home, consider whether it is in an area accessible to other attractions or supplies.

Buying your first home? Get started in 3 steps

 | 

 

Whether you are newlyweds starting out, a single person, or an established family, buying your first home takes preparation.  Where do you start?

 

First, you need to figure out what you can afford. If you are currently renting, use your monthly rent payment as a basis for what you’ll want your monthly mortgage payment to be. Often, you will pay less for a mortgage than rent, but there are a few extra costs in owning a home versus renting (property taxes, maintenance, etc.). A Realtor can help you determine those and other costs ahead of your home purchase.
