Choosing Your New Vacation Home Design

When it comes to building a vacation home, it is important to evaluate all of the design and location options that are at your disposal. At Trafalgar Homes, we have a wide variety of vacation homes available to choose from, it can seem somewhat overwhelming. By learning more information about vacation homes such as the desired size, amenities and investment strategies, making the right choice should be achievable.

Bigger is Not Always Better

Smaller vacation homes can have a number of advantages when compared to their larger counterparts. They cost less to build, can be built on a much smaller lot of property and will result in lower maintenance costs.

Consider Maintenance While Away

A number of vacation homeowners will opt to buy a vacation home that is part of a condominium community because outside maintenance such as lawn care is performed. This of course also comes with a monthly fee. According to Investopedia, “A single-family home, for example, will have different costs and demands than a condominium unit or townhouse. Condominium units are popular vacation properties because the owner is not responsible for any of the maintenance outside of the individual unit. Lawn care, exterior painting, pool cleaning and garbage removal are all handled by the condominium association.” This being said, a home with a bit more seclusion will offer a higher degree of privacy. A way to get around the maintenance quandary is to rent out the property while you are away while making outdoor maintenance a part of the tenant’s responsibility for a discount in monthly rent.

Weather and Local Conditions

The design of a vacation home should highly correlate to the local weather and other conditions. For example, a home built close to the beach should be resistant to flooding and high winds.

At Trafalgar Homes we are here to help you make the right choice when it comes to building your new vacation home. Book your no-obligation appointment or call 1.866.971.0239 so that we can help you to find the design that will be perfect for you and your budget.
