5 Things Luxury Buyers are Looking for in Vacation Homes

The ideal vacation can look different to every person. When it comes to vacation homes today’s high-end real estate buyers are elevating their expectations of what they expect a holiday property to look like and provide.

There are five items that luxury buyers are looking for when they shop for their next vacation home

Tranquil outdoor spaces where they can detox from digital items

Most Americans across the country lead very busy lives and this is certainly true of luxury homebuyers. An ideal and perfect vacation is often one where someone can turn off their phone and other devices and enjoy their outdoor surroundings in peace.

Locations that have amazing outdoor spaces that are luxurious, lush, and private are at the top of many luxury homebuyer lists right now. Vacations that are about unplugging and getting away from it all in the most luxurious locations on the planet are highly trending.

Less and fewer luxury buyers are looking for places that have high-energy modern activities available at the doorstep and trading them for locales where they can have plenty of space in the gorgeous outdoors. This means that oceanfront homes are currently in very high demand.

A complete change of scenery

A large number of today’s luxury vacation home shoppers are looking to escape the everyday experiences for something that is completely new and opposite of what they experience on a regular day-to-day basis.

Homebuyers like the option to change time zones and climate at their leisure. They are hoping to find a place with different weather and completely different activities from their current home.

Plenty of space for the entire family and maybe some guests

Vacations now are often a full family event including grandma and grandpa and aunts and uncles. Homes that can house more than just the immediate family and allow for the comfortable accommodations of extended family, or friends that are like family, are in higher demand.

Many more buyers are hoping to have a vacation home that they can keep in the family for generations. A home where their children may someday own the house and bring all of their families together at the same time. This means a home large enough to house several family units under one roof.

Community and culture nearby

The attributes of the property itself are just the beginning of must-haves on the list of attributes for vacation property amongst luxury buyers. Having cultural events and places to take part in the community is high on the list of must-haves in today’s luxury vacation home market.

Many people who see themselves returning to the same spot to have fun and vacation (either one or several times a year) are hoping to find and build community with other people doing just the same in the area.
