The nation’s leading online resource for information about second homes in private, golf communities is tracking record numbers, according to Elisabeth Miller-Fox, co-founder of PrivateCommunities.com
Since January, there were more than 1.4 million visitors to PrivateCommunities.com, up 28% from the previous year. “Traffic has been outstanding and the summer months showed no slowdown,” said Robert Weimer, the firm’s VP of Technology. “My conservative forecast puts the company on track for at least 2.2 million visitors by year end.”
A hot real estate market, low interest rates, and 76 million baby boomers entering retirement is credited for the online search and buying frenzy in the second, retirement and vacation home sector. PrivateCommunities.com is a 9-year old portal site with details about master-planned communities in the U.S., Caribbean and Ireland.
“Our company is an excellent bellwether for the second home market, we know when times are good and can predict downturns long before they happen”, said Miller-Fox. It appears times are great in the second home market.
