Buying or selling a second home: Have someone in your corner

Buying or selling a second home is unlike dealing with your primary residence. There are many challenges to this process. The biggest obstacle is that you are likely not even in the state where you have decided to purchase or sell.

For buyers, social media brings everything right to your fingertips. You can research an area, find your perfect spot and even zero in on a couple of properties. Ultimately, you will want a professional Realtor® in your corner. Your Realtor® will manage all the back and forth work and eventually help negotiate the sale or purchase of your second home. A great agent will also work on your behalf with local service providers, contractors, and attorneys etc., to get every last detail in place. A real estate agent with knowledge of the area, local markets and preferably one who specializes in second homes will be your eyes and ears locally.  Some agents now have the designation of RSPS (Resort and Second Property Specialist). These are agents with advanced certification who specialize in buying, selling or managing properties for investment, development, retirement, or second homes in a resort, recreational and/or vacation destination.
