Have you thought about purchasing a vacation home? Most immediately target a home in another state but have you considered a home that offers a different style of living within driving distance - a downtown/urban lifestyle or perhaps a home that offers a bit more room and privacy?
TheNational Association of Realtorsjust released their2015 Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Surveywhich revealed that vacation home sales boomed in 2014 to above their most recent peak level in 2006. NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said favorable conditions are driving second-home sales:
“Affluent households have greatly benefited from strong growth in the stock market in recent years, and the steady rise in home prices has likely given them reassurance that real estate remains an attractive long-term investment. Furthermore, last year’s impressive increase also reflects long-term growth in the numbers of baby boomers moving closer to retirement and buying second homes to convert into their primary home in a few years.”
The report shows:
Vacation-home sales catapulted to an estimated 1.13 million last year
This was the highest amount since NAR began the survey in 2003
Vacation sales were up 57.4% from 717,000 in 2013
Vacation-home sales accounted for 21 percent of all transactions in 2014, their highest market share since the survey was first conducted
