For these buyers, second homes are much more than vacation spots
Having a second or third home is not a new concept. Many Americans live in different parts of the country at different times of the year. They may have a house in the Northeast and a home to flock to in the winter in a sunny state like Florida. That was then. In the new real estate normal of the post COVID-19 era, there is now a trend that is taking place. The rise of the “co-primary” home. That is, a second home that isn’t so secondary anymore. Rather, it is seen as an alternative primary residence for homeowners to flee the confines and density of the city, such as NYC and quarantine with more square footage, a home office and plenty of space outdoors to socially distance.
