Investing in a second home is a bit different than the purchase of a primary residence. What people typically want in a home for a full-time residence is different than their needs for a second home out on the mountainside. One of the most popular things people look for in their second homes is a lot of sleeping space for their friends and family on their ski weekend. People also like open floor plans on their second homes so everyone can cook, eat or watch movies together in a large great room.
What are your needs when buying a second home?
So, something to consider when buying a second home: What are your real needs for a second home? Remember, your second home is your home AWAY from home and as such you might have a different set of requirements for what your second home should be in order for you to fully enjoy it. For example, if your city home is sleek and modern you might actually want your Breckenridge vacation home to be rustic and cozy so that you feel like your second house is a place to go to get away from all the hustle and bustle of modern life.
