“Although a remote area does appeal to a few, the masses will prefer a destination resort for a vacation home,” said Gloria Jewell of Teles Properties, who sold the Billingtons their Laguna Beach house. “Anywhere in a resort area — whether it’s golf, ocean, skiing (or) desert — will sell quicker.”
Above all, don’t let your vacation bliss lead you into a bad decision that could be with you for years.
“Purchasing a vacation home is such an emotional purchase,” Ross said, “that I have seen very smart people make decisions they would not do in any other circumstance.”
