    Vacation homes are sellingVacation real estate appears to be what is selling. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal noted how vacation property and second home markets are starting to see activity. When real estate is suffering all over the nation what is making vacation real estate loosen up? Low mortgage rates and bargain prices. While volume is way up in certain sought-after areas, prices are down and that is bringing buyers in, buyers who don’t want to miss the opportunity to buy a vacation home.

    The key is patience and an absence of emotion. The true deals are being bought by patient buyers who are submitting offers until they succeed in finding sellers who are willing to accept a low price. A lot of vacation properties are being bought by cash buyers who are in a position to offer a quick closing with no financing contingencies. As the economy improves so do the piggy banks of the wealthy, who are all too happy to buy a second home in a desirable location.

Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service.
