Lake Havasu Secondary Market Among Hottest in the US

Lake Havasu City began as a great place to "winter". Even in the coldest part of the year, temperatures rarely dip below 60F. The influx of "snowbirds" each winter helped keep the economy afloat for many years. Over the past couple of decades, Havasu became a "go to" vacation spot for younger residents nearby. So, it should come as no surprise that the Lake Havasu secondary market was recently named among the hottest in the US.

The Lake Havasu secondary market ranked among the hottest in the US, according to a recent SmartAsset.com survey. Almost 30% of all mortgages in the city are the homeowner's second property (rental or vacation home).

Almost 30% of the more than 3300 mortgages held in the Havasu market are for second homes. For some, these represent a personal vacation home. For others, these are investments. Still, others plan ahead for their retirement. After all, Realtor.com named Lake Havasu as the third of its "Top 10 Cities to Age in Place". We're seeing a lot of California residents purchasing property in Havasu as well. They note the lower cost of living and home prices as primary contributing factors.

How This Affects Local Havasu Buyers

With higher income buyers from other areas entering the market, our local Havasu buyers find it difficult to find affordable homes to purchase. Buyer demand has put a dent in our local inventory. In fact, finding a home under $300,000 can be difficult. However, it's not impossible. Exercise a little patience and you'll find exactly what you're looking for.
