lake winnipesaukee: Good News for the Second Home Market! - 04/02/08 02:04 AM
The media has hit the real estate business very hard in the past year.  But what most people do not understand is that it is not all bad, everywhere.  Last week the National Association of REALTORS reported that out of all the existing homes sold last year, 33% were not primary residences, they were vacation homes or investment properties.
The amount of investment homes that were purchased last year was 21% compared to 22% in 2006.  The vacation home market was at 12% compared to 14% in 2006.  That is not a huge drop.  What this tells us is that there is still a … (7 comments)

Have you been thinking about a vacation home?  If you have, you should seriously consider a condo.  Chances are you will be very happy if you choose a condo, townhouse or any community association property. 
Seven out of ten condo owners say they are happy with their purchase.  Compared to single-family homes, condos are less expensive.  They are easy on your back.  Landscaping, plowing, roofing and siding are all taken care of by the homeowners association.  Also, the average condo has less square footage than a single-family home which means keeping the interior clean and tidy is easier as well.  Who wants … (4 comments)
