3 Tips for Buying a Second Home
The promising change of scenery and the chance to create new family memories makes buying a second home an exciting investment. Before making an offer, consider these tips.
Get a feel for everyday life. Spend plenty of time in the area where you're hoping to buy – ideally during peak- and off-season – to make sure it's what you expected.
Research HOA rules. If you're hoping to rent out your second home when you're not using it, make sure you understand the homeowners association rules in your preferred neighborhood. Some HOAs ban renters or require potential tenants to be screened.
Work with a local expert. Call any time for a referral to a Realtor® in your dream location.
