Much of the Highlands NC real estate market is comprised of second homes and buying a vacation home is different than buying a primary residence. Getting to know the market is an important aspect of buying a second home and this can take some time as you may not be as familiar with the area. Having and experienced Highlands REALTOR® on your side can be extremely valuable when it comes to finding the right property.
One of the most important things to familiarize yourself with when looking for vacation property in Highlands NC is getting to know the area and which locations are better suited to second homes. This is especially relevant should you plan to rent the home out when not in use. It is also important to know what amenities come with your property, such as golfing, tennis, fishing, and the like. Of course it almost goes without saying to note that you should research the market and know what homes are selling, what inventory levels are like and how homes hold their value.
