Vacation and Second Home Properties
Whether you are considering a vacation or second home for a weekend escape or a family legacy property let your me guide you through the decision-making process as well as the transaction assuring a smooth and enjoyable experience.
Many of these properties are located in resort areas not in the same State or region as your primary home and are subject to local restrictions, taxes, and regulations. Dealing with homeowners associations, management companies, local lending, Insurance, covenants, building regulations, Title issues, well permits, weather conditions that might affect value, transportation and technology options can all be a challenge particularly if you are trying to deal with these issues from a distance. Often times I can show you how you can turn these possible pitfalls into advantages with their local knowledge and expertise.
I want you to enjoy your vacation or second home property bringing you and your family great memories for years to come. By using me as a resource before, during and after the transaction with their attention to detail and guidance will allow you this opportunity.
Single Family Homes
Whether your desire is to own a secluded cabin in the woods or a home on a golf course, beach or ski slope determining your needs and how you plan on using the home, are essential to your selection process. Will you be using this property seasonally or just on weekends, as a gathering place for friends and relatives for holidays or simply an escape from the stresses of everyday living? Emotions play a large part in your property selection, as it should. However, don't allow your emotions to be the overriding decider.
There are many factors that need to be considered to ensure that you will be able to enjoy your escape property. Most important on this list is what will happen to the home when you are not there? What attention to the home might be needed in your absence?
The benefit of single-family home ownership is that you have more flexibility on individual choices. The challenge is more daily attention may be required. There are management companies who specialize in the caretaking of single family homes and many offer a menu of options. Understanding the costs and paring down what you need or desire will help you determine what the costs might be. Also understanding local zoning regulations and common interest community rules and regulations might determine if this home is appropriate for your desired use.
Other determining factors might be property taxes (some states charge higher property taxes on out of state owners), utility costs, transportation costs, and options. Local issues such as snow load or flooding, pest control or mold are also vital pieces of information. Once under contract, an inspection should be conducted and in many areas of the United States radon can be a factor. This is relatively simple and inexpensive to mitigate and often something the Seller will pay for.
Housing Considerations For Retirement Living
When the topic of Retirement Living comes up there are a number of special considerations that are usually included in the conversation. This article will discuss some of the absolutes in any search for property for a retired homeowner.
Usually one of the reasons for a move is to avoid some of the maintenance obligations that come with a larger traditional home. A good home for the retirement lifestyle will either be low maintenance or there will be a dedicated maintenance crew to take care of the maintenance. Often the best home with combine both. As an example, a condominium normally will have a crew to take care of the exterior and sometimes this same arrangement would cover interior maintenance items like plumbing, heating, and air-conditioning
Easy on the knees
Even if there are no mobility impairments now, a good home for retirement will take into account that there will likely be mobility impairments in the future. That is why the vast majority of retirement communities have all the primary living spaces on the main floor. If more space is needed for things like visitor rooms they often go on upper or lower floors. And don't forget the entryway to the home. It is always best if there is space for a ramp from the garage or a convenient exterior door. Even if you don't need it, it is likely that some of your visitors may.
Convenient to activities
Another important aspect is the convenience of various activities. Those activities are very different for different people but they often center around golf, fishing, church, or family. Sometimes the retirement community is built around these activities, sometimes they are nearby. Consider how those retirement hours will be spent before your purchase.
Additionally, if you want to increase your chances of having visitors consider moving to an area close to national attractions. This is one reason there are so many retirement communities near the Disney theme parks.
Easy to travel
One aspect that sometimes gets neglected when choosing a retirement community is access to easy travel. You don't want to be isolated so consider how you will travel and how friends and family might travel to you.
One final aspect to consider is security. Ideally you want the ability to close your door and travel without worrying about having your home burglarized. Gated communities often help owners feel more secure. Having friends in the development who can check on your home is another option to consider.

Note that several new floor plans have been added. The new floor plans are a drastic departure from what Pulte/Dell Webb has offered in the past. Significant structural options have not been a part of the Pulte/Del Webb philosophy. Now there is an incredible number of customizations available.
Current selling prices for both new and resale, over the last year run between $125 and $190 per sq. ft. That starts somewhat lower than the median selling prices per sq. ft. for the Sun City communities in the greater Las Vegas area.
Sun City Mesquite has 22 single story home designs ranging from 1,241 to 3,115 sq. ft. Base prices range for the current models, at the time of this writing, May 7, 2018, are between $185,990 and $332,990. The sizes of these current models range from 1,241 to 2,514 sq. ft. I know this development well and have represented many buyers here. It is a beautiful community with great mountain views and wonderful topography. Many lots will be at elevation, looking down into the community as well as out into the valley.

This is a newer and very interesting option to other age-restricted communities, Del Webb and otherwise, presently available in the Clark County, Nevada area. It may also appeal to prospective buyers that may otherwise pick another location in the southwest. The travel distance from this community to the strip/airport area in Las Vegas to be around an hour and 15 Minutes. Mesquite is also around 30 minutes from St George Utah, a larger and more developed community with shopping and other services that Mesquite lacks at this time. Mesquite itself is a nice clean city with mostly newer construction. In the mid-1980s Mesquite was a relatively quiet farming community with a few businesses catering to the travelers along I-15. The population at that time was around 800 people. The population has increased to over 19,000 with most of that increase coming within the last 15 years. The weather in Mesquite is similar to Las Vegas with summer and winter high temperatures about the same. Night time lows are somewhat cooler.
There is quite a bit of development in the area of Anthem, Mesquite (master plan being called Anthem). A hospital is within a mile of the community.

Reviews from my clients!
My experience with Chris Williams was exceptional! He is a professional, knowledgeable and caring real estate agent. He is the first agent I have dealt with that doesn’t pressure or rush you to make a decision. He goes over and above to help even after the sale goes thru. He has been a great resource for my dad who is new to Mesquite. I highly recommend him.
Thank you, Chris
We have recently moved from Missouri to Mesquite, NV and I wanted to let you know about our Real Estate person Chris Williams who works for Caldwell Banker Roadrunner Realty. He was very helpful in helping us find a home in Mesquite and he really worked very hard for us, helping us so many ways since we were so far away. A big thank you.

I would like to share some thoughts about Chris Williams (Realtor). I am providing this narrative to him to use as he wishes.
Chris is my Mesquite Realtor. He sold me my house in Mesquite NV. (Sun City)
I am taking the time to offer my strongest recommendation to use Chris as your personal Realtor.
Specifically, Chris is very patient. I looked at a lot of properties, and he did not whine/frown or complain.
Mesquite has many properties in various subdivisions. I had been impulsive/hurried in the past with real estate decisions and made some poor choices. Choosing a place to live is serious business and should not be taken lightly. If you want someone that will give you some space, Chris is the man
Also, Chris is tolerant. I give him some headaches with contracts/conditions/pricing etc. and he never flinched. He will happily tell people what they may not want to hear on your behalf.
Chris is also very knowledgeable of the market and conditions. He knows numbers and financing options, smart guy.
Chris knows where you can get questions answered on just about anything and does not fuss when asked.
I consider Mr. Williams a friend, but this is not personal. I consider this as something I owe him for exemplary service. Chris may provide my phone number anytime to any prospective customer that may question the authenticity of this recommendation. He has my identity and I totally trust his judgment.
