Buying a vacation home may be as close as you can get to buying peace of mind. Vacation homes, which accounted for 12% of all home sales in 2016, according to NAR), tend to be located 200 miles from the buyer's primary residence. Being near a beach (36%), at the lake (21%), or in the country (20%) were the most popular destinations.
Trulia compiled the most expensive vacation markets in the US based on median listing prices. To be included in the ranking, each zip code had to have at least 3,000 homes with 5% vacant for seasonal or occasional use.
Personally I've been very fortunate to have lived and worked in four of these wonderful vacation communities; Sanibel, Naples, Avalon and Stone Harbor. Having my real estate broker’s license in NJ and Florida gives me the opportunity to help home buyers and sellers in Southwest Florida and the Jersey Shore.
