Are You Thinking of Selling Your Vacation Home?
May 7, 2021
As a local agent in these beautiful North GA mountains, I know that a large amount of homes purchased and sold in this area are used for vacation homes. Many people use them as a vacation or second home for themselves and some even list them on rental programs to generate income.
Why is this year a great year to sell your vacation home? Or maybe invest in one? Well one thing I think we have all learned and grown to appreciate since the Covid pandemic started is the importance of friends and family. What I mean by that is, that many Americans were and some still are not able to have gatherings or social events with members outside their household. We have all been impacted in one way or another by this social distancing and most American truly miss being able to be around their friends and family members. Americans also have found they not only miss socializing but specifically the comforts of just small gatherings with these close friends in a home setting. This is just one reason the vacation home is becoming so popular.
With so many Americans now getting and being able to get the vaccine, people are now starting to plan those long awaited vacations. Because of this and the new found appreciation of the home, people are looking more to buy or rent vacation homes rather than a hotel. Not only are vacation homes seen to be a more “pandemic friendly” way to still get to travel and socialize, they are also seen as a home away from home. Many people are able to work from home now also and so this actually allows vacation homes being able to be used year-round rather than just during the typical vacation seasons. What does this mean? Well if you are investing in one yourself it means that you will likely be able to make more income throughout the year because people’s travel schedules are more flexible than in past years.
The bottom line is this, the demand for vacation homes has increased and is going to continue to rise more as we head into the vacation season. If you currently own a vacation home in these wonderful mountains, now is a great time to take advantage of the high market values and high buyer interest.
