Highlands NC real estate is largely made up of vacation homes and buying and selling vacation homes can be a different experience than buying a primary residence. The more aware of the differences and the more prepared you are for the process the easier your vacation home transaction can be. Your Highlands REALTOR® can help you understand the obstacles that can arise and, more importantly, how to avoid them.
Just like buying a primary residence, buying a vacation home involves attention to your finances and getting pre-qualified for a loan prior to its purchase. If you are buying Highlands real estate with cash the loan won’t be required but knowing what the costs associated with the home’s upkeep and maintenance should be examined. There could be additional fees with owning a vacation home that you could overlook, like HOA dues.
