4 Questions to Ask When Buying a Second Home

While many have chosen to buy a permanent residence on Lake Nacimiento in order to enjoy this beautiful setting and vibrant community year round; there are still of number of buyers who want the luxury of a vacation home that acts as a private getaway.

If you’re one who’s been considering buying a vacation home on Lake Nacimiento; you have probably taken the time to think through the financial and personal commitments.  As a Lake Nacimiento Real Estate agent, my goal is to help buyers walk through the process of buying, and with a second home there comes a few additional considerations.  Here are four questions you’ll want to be sure to ask yourself before jumping in to buying a vacation home.

1. How accessible is the property?  If you live in Central California, vacationing on Lake Nacimiento will be an easy commute.  But what if you live out of state?  Consider how often you’ll be visiting your home and the time and cost it takes to travel to Lake Nacimiento.

2. Is the community well planned?  You’ll want to make sure when looking at vacation homes that the community fits well together.  There are some vacation communities that put high end properties just across the street from mobile homes.  Of course in Oak Shores or Heritage Ranch, the homes are cohesive and the community well planned.  But, since you’ll be inadvertently involved in the community; you’ll want to make sure you feel comfortable there.

3. Is the house in good shape?  This is a basic thing to consider, but it’s worth giving a second thought.  Even if the location is ideal with sweeping views of Lake Nacimiento; you don’t want to be stuck with a money pit for a vacation property.  Consider the homes’ condition, and determine how much work you’re willing to put in to a home before you begin searching for a home on Lake Nacimiento.

4. Will you feel at home there?  Although you won’t be living in your vacation home all year long, you still want to make sure you feel at home in the home itself and the community.  Make sure your vacation home is a place you want to be and that feel like a relaxing retreat!  This will be a place where you create memories and have the opportunity to decompress, so you’ll want to make sure it feels like home!

I hope that as you consider buying a vacation home on Lake Nacimiento, these tips are helpful!  It can be a large decision and one that needs to be weighed carefully.  Of course, I’m always available to answer any questions you have about the Lake Nacimiento lifestyle and the Lake Nacimiento Real Estate market.
