This blog shall examine our experience with buying a vacation home. Hopefully, it will eventually become an account of owning a vacation home:
The term vacation home is pretty holistic. It may mean a beach home, a home on a golf course, a ski condo, a desert hideway, or an island retreat. Settling on what type of vacation home one wants is essential, expecially if you are buying it with a significant other. My wife and I knew that this was going to be some type of mountain retreat. In the mountains of California there are endless opportunities for buying mountain property. We decided we were looking for a small cabin between 800 sq. ft. and 1400 sq. ft.
The more that you are able to narrow down what you are after, the less time you will waste looking at areas and dwellings that really aren't in the running.
