Can I afford to buy a second home?

When considering whether a vacation home is a good fit for you and your family, it is important to examine the true cost of ownership. This requires looking beyond the sale price. Factors to consider include financing, insurance, taxes, and property upkeep. As with any investment, you want to ensure you’re making an informed decision. As a property management company comprised of over 200 vacation homes, VillaDirect has performance data that most builders and realtors do not. Our realtors work overtime to provide the data needed to make the best investment choice for you.

What is the first step of the home buying process?

If your vacation home purchase requires financing, the first step in the home buying process is to get pre-approved for a mortgage. VillaDirect can recommend mortgage loan originators that specialize in second homes to assist you. Pre-approval is important because it is the only way to be sure of the amount you can finance.

Who pays the realtor?

All commissions are paid by the seller. You retain the services of a real estate agent at no cost to you as the realtor’s commission is paid by the seller when the sale contract is closed.
