Highlands NC Real Estate, Vacation Homes Sought After
Vacation homes are sought after these days and serve as a driver for Highlands NC real estate purchases. A recent article in REALTOR Magazine (Yun: Vacation-Home sales Defy Housing Market Slowdown) suggests that vacation home sales will remain hot, even while primary markets are cooling. Ultimately, the pandemic has made it possible for people to work remotely which has had a huge effect on the second home market. After all, who wouldn’t prefer to take a break and go for a walk in the woods or start the day with a little fly fishing? The Highlands NC area is a desirable place to call home as well as “second home”.
Highlands NC offers an exceptional quality of life
Many people choose to purchase Highlands NC vacation homes because they can escape from the hustle and bustle of urban living yet enjoy many of the amenities they desire. Great shopping and dining options in addition to access to the arts, accent the mountain lifestyle. Additionally, country club living is attractive to many who want easy access to golf as well as opportunities to stay social.
The vacation home rental market is strong
Demand for vacation home rentals is very strong. Additionally, because so many can work remotely there is more demand outside of traditional vacation periods. This means that traditional off-season periods are almost non-existent and rental markets are hotter on a year-round basis. As such, buyers of second homes have even more opportunities to recoup some costs by renting homes when not in use.
