I routinely work with out of state buyers from NY, CT, NJ and FL. who are interested in purchasing Second Homes here in The Berkshires, Ma. They want to have a home in The Berkshires because it is a four season area.
They like communities that have the cultural, and outdoor activities that Berkshire County offer. In the spring and summer when they come to town they like the idea of having a lot of lakes to choose from for swimming, boating, fishing plus many trails for hiking, and cycling.
Culturally speaking The Berkshires, Ma. is known as the summer cultural center for Music, Theatre, Dance with Tanglewood, Barrington Stage, and Jacobs Pillow taking the lead of the many performing companies. Summers spent in The Berkshires taking in the fresh air, and awesome mountain views have been well known for over a century.
The many museums, antique shops, fine dining coupled with knock your socks off fall colors, and Winter Ski Slopes for downhill and cross country skiing makes owning real estate in The Berkshires the perfect spot to buy a Second Home.
Data from the recently released 2011 NAR (National Association of Realtors) Investment and Vacation Home Survey shows vacation home sales accounted for 10 percent of all transactions last year and investment sales were 17 percent of the overall market.
i am very happy that The Berkshires is one of the top areas for Second Home buyers looking for a property in the northeast.
If you have friends or family who want a perfect mix of cultural and outdoor actvities you should invite them to consider buying a home in The Berkshires, Ma. especially now that prices have leveled off and mortgage rates are still low.
