Vacation homes 101
February 9, 2012
A vacation home is something most people only dream of owning. Here are four reasons to consider making this dream a reality this year.
Financial factors: Mortgage rates remain low, and now is a great time to buy a vacation home, or buy land and begin custom building a home that meets your family’s unique needs. Whether it’s a primary dwelling or vacation home, remember real estate’s number one rule: location, location, location. The Texas economy is faring well, and now is a great time to buy land in Texas.
Family fun: It’s always exciting to pack up and go somewhere as a family, and there is nothing more relaxing than a scenic drive to your own vacation home. No need to double check that your room is ready or worry about directions to the hotel or resort. When you own your own vacation home, you can leave the city on a whim and spend a weekend with family, no reservations required.
Future facts: Many people who own two homes eventually make their vacation home their primary residence, sometimes even selling their first home. Retirees who have mainly visited their vacation home on weekends to golf and relax often realize that once they aren’t required to be in the office five days a week, they’d much rather live near the golf course permanently. There’s no need to search for a retirement home since they wisely purchased, or built, one years earlier.
Texas is a great place to vacation. If job or other responsibilities currently prevent you from making a permanent move to Texas, consider a vacation home in the Texas Hill Country. Texas Homesites will show you land for sale in pristine master planned communities and golfing communities in Texas. Spend your weekends and holidays relaxing on the golf course, and give yourself the option of retiring in the peaceful Texas hills in the future.
