When you hire a real estate agent, it’s important to understand whose side she’s on as you select a home to buy (or list your current home for sale) and head towards closing, where the actual transfer of ownership happens. There are a lot of ways agents may represent clients. Yours might represent:
- Only You
- Only the parties in the transaction
- Everyone in the deal
For many families, this time of year means one thing: vacation time! More and more people could be taking that vacation in their second home.
The National Association of REALTORS®’ 2014 Investment and Vacation Home Buyers Survey shows vacation home sales accounted for 21 percent of all sales in 2014, up nearly 58 percent from the previous year. That represents their highest market share since the survey was first taken in 2003. Even as activity picks up, the market remains good for buyers. This means that if you’ve been dreaming of buying a vacation home, now may be the time.
