A vacation home can add tremendously to your family’s quality of life. This is especially true when you make your choice carefully and thoughtfully. Here are ten tips to consider when buying a vacation home. 


1. Ease of Access

Most people only get two or three weeks of vacation time each year. If your vacation days are limited, you might like to take advantage of three-day weekends to visit your vacation home. However, you won’t be able to do that unless you can get to your vacation home fairly easily. Consider how long it takes you to get there as well as the travel expenses you’ll incur. Also bear in mind how easy or difficult it might be for your friends and extended family to travel to visit you in your vacation home.

Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist, had this to say:

“Healthy consumer spending and higher commodity prices spooked bond markets and led to higher mortgage rates over the past week.

Not only are buyers facing higher borrowing costs, gas prices are currently at four-year highs just as we enter the important peak home sales season.”

When you're trying to make your offer as attractive as possible, skipping the inspection may seem like a good idea. Here's why it's not.

This is never a good idea. The home may look OK to the naked eye, but it’s what’s beyond the surface, or items that you can’t identify as problematic, that cause the biggest issues.

For example, the typical buyer won’t be able to spot asbestos, nor will they see evidence of termite infestation or a leak inside the HVAC system.

After all, your financial life will be much of what helps lenders decide to offer you a loan, not your personality. And unless you have enough cash to buy a whole house, you’re going to need a home loan. Knowing how to get a mortgage long before you attempt to will help your odds of success.
