Purchasing a second home that’s located on Cape Cod can be the realization of a lifelong dream. After all, the setting is peaceful, the scenery spectacular and the communities safe and inviting. A second home can serve as the ultimate “escape”—whether it’s for weekend getaways, holiday gatherings or well-earned vacations.
At TODAY Real Estate, our experienced team of professionals stands ready to help you find the perfect second home. As resident Cape Codders, we know the area intimately and can help you evaluate properties based on criteria like school systems, rental appeal and community size.
Keep in mind that purchasing a second home is typically recommended for people with secure financial profiles, including adequate college and retirement funding, reliable income, sufficient (liquid) savings on hand, and low overall debt. In addition, buyers intending to rent their second homes should familiarize themselves with local laws and property-site regulations (in the case of condominiums)—which can vary considerably regarding types of eligible rental properties and required minimum rental periods—as well as IRS classifications of second homes as either “personal residences” or “rental properties” and the associated tax ramifications.
For a second home, there’s no place quite like Cape Cod. And there’s no better way to make the move than with TODAY Real Estate.
