Buying a Second Home on Anna Maria Island

Owning a second home on Anna Maria Island is a dream for many. It’s easy to imagine yourself enjoying vacations whenever you want, retiring to a place you love or even generating income as a landlord. There are plenty of reasons why buying a second home is a good idea, and we’re always available to answer any questions you may have about the process. Things to consider include maintenance while you’re away, zoning and how you intend to use the property.

If you’re using it to rent out as an income producing property, be sure to check the zoning for the type of rental you want. Some condos have stricter regulations when it comes to renting. For single family homes, the zoning matters whether weekly rentals are allowed or 30 day minimums. Is there room for a pool? How’s the access to the trolley and the beach?

For a home to use in retirement, are stairs a factor? Does the home or building have elevator access? Are doorways and hallways easily accessible? This is something to consider whether now or in the future for yourself or guests. Remember, if you live in Florida, you’ll have visitors!
