Vacation at Home with the Help of @properties

Looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city this summer? Well, you’re not alone. According to a recent report from Redfin, mortgage applications for second homes increased 84% in January year over year. The trend has largely been driven by low mortgage rates and lifestyle changes brought on by the pandemic, as people have realized they can bring remote work seemingly anywhere.

If you’re thinking about buying a second home, your @properties agent is a great place to start no matter the destination.

As the premier brokerage firm in the resort-home markets of Michigan, Indiana, and Wisconsin, @properties has a number of local agents with the expertise and resources to help you find a home in these areas. We also represent new-construction developments in second-home markets. One new community is Avanterra, which offers 23 oversized homesites in LaPorte, Indiana, near Michigan City and New Buffalo. Situated on 100 acres of wooded natural surroundings, Avanterra is the ultimate retreat with walking paths, a community pool, and fiber optic connectivity, just an hour’s drive from Chicago.

For those looking beyond the Midwest, @properties’ partnerships with Ansley Real Estate and Nest Realty give us the ability to connect buyers to agents who specialize in markets like Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, Georgia, and Tennessee. Second-home buyers on the hunt for a relaxing oasis down south will fall in love with The Ford Field & River Club in Richmond Hill, Georgia. Located on the Ogeechee River, the community is set on historic land and features amenities such as a deep-water marina, championship golf course, and an equestrian center. With a sports barn, naturalist center, and day spa, homeowners at The Ford are always on vacation while still enjoying the comforts of home.
