Vacation Home Market Growing!!

Posted by Jochen | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on Monday, October 27, 2014

The sales of vacation homes skyrocketed last year. A recent study also revealed that 25% of those surveyed said they’d likely buy a second home, such as a vacation or beach house, to use during retirement. For many Baby Boomers, the idea of finally purchasing that vacation home (that they may eventually use in retirement) makes more and more sense as the economy improves and the housing market recovers.

If your family is thinking about purchasing that second home, now may be the perfect time. Prices are still great. If you decide to lease the property until you’re ready to occupy it full time, the rental market in most areas is very strong. And you can still get a great mortgage interest rate.

If you are looking to escape the summer heat, call us today about finding your perfect mountain estate or cottage. We have a wonderful selection of vacation homes in the greater Highlands, Cashiers, Sapphire, Lake Glenville, and Lake Toxaway area. Call us today at 828-743-1999, or email us at
