The purchase of a second home or retreat involves decisions somewhat different from those made when purchasing your primary residence. The most fundamental decision centers around choosing a geographic region (or regions) within which to base your property search. Where you look is influenced by several factors. How familiar are you with a particular area? Have you vacationed there in the past? Do you have friends or family nearby? Do you feel a natural connection to an area? How far are you willing to drive from your primary home? How much time do you anticipate you'll spend at the lake? What regions offer better value than others? Other questions to ask yourself: What activities do I enjoy and how will that influence how I choose a lake? How do I learn about water quality? Is it important I purchase a property I can use year round? What do I need to learn about wells and septic systems? How much can I comfortably afford? What are my best financing options? Should I work with a local lender or lenders based in the Cities? How will I take care of the property? And the list goes on!
