5 Insights on Selling to Snowbirds

A more resilient economy and a competitive housing market in vacation home areas have led to a seasonal home buying boost
 

These are some guidelines I follow for providing exceptional service to buyers looking for vacation homes.

 

1. It’s all about amenities and turnkey living

 

If someone’s interested in buying a seasonal or vacation home, they’re looking for lifestyle, and I find out what people do with their free time so I can match them with the right broker in the right area.”

 

Snowbirds tend to invest in lower-maintenance properties such as condominiums, townhomes and smaller single-family homes that they can quickly lock and leave.

 

2. Younger generations are planning ahead

 

Although adults ages 55 and older comprise the bulk of the snowbird market, seasonal homes also appeal to a growing number of Gen Xers. I'm seeing a lot of people in their 40s buying now so that they can pay off the property before they retire. Sometimes they’ll rent out property or make it available to family and friends.

 

Agents in Phoenix, Arizona, see a lot of younger buyers from California who can't afford their home states’ booming real estate market. “People understand that Arizona is a solid investment right now,” so they say. Many East Coast residents make a beeline for Florida for the same reasons.

 

3. Connecting with out-of-country agents is key

 

Many agents increase their snowbird marketing efforts in the fall and winter to target not only prospective clients but also out-of-country brokers.

 

I touch base with agents year-round in hopes that when their clients start to look for a second home, they’ll keep me in mind when they’re looking. I feel if agents trust you to take care of their clients, they’re going to send others to you and vice versa.

 

4. Relationships should be both near and far

 

Social media is a cost-effective way to build and maintain these relationships. I use my website, Facebook and LinkedIn to keep my name in front of agents and prospective clients. Client referrals are another critical avenue. I have a large tier of personal clients who have relocated or bought second homes, so by giving them a superior experience, they trust in my expertise, and they refer friends and family to me when they’re interested in buying a second home.

 

5. Marketing is necessary on multiple fronts

 

Traditional marketing tools, such as e-newsletters and postcard mailings, work well for agent Pam Finkelstein of Florida. She mails postcards to her target market and past clients year-round. Ready conducts a quarterly social media and e-mail campaign.

 

Of course, face-to-face connections, either during personal trips or business conventions, always help build relationships with prospective buyers and agents across international lines.
