Why own a vacation home in Brian Head, Utah
Vacation Homes in Brian Head Utah
Why should I consider a vacation home in Brian Head Utah? As a long time Real Estate Broker in Southern Utah I am often asked about the surrounding area from folks who live out of town. With the economy improving this one question that has come up frequently. My answer ABSOLUTELY!
Are prices stable or rising?
Prices are definitely rising in our market. They have not made it back to where they were before the ‘bubble,’ as the second home/vacation home market was among the first and hardest hit. As the economy improves, buyers locally and from surrounding states feel that our market is still very affordable.
How tough is it to get a loan?
This depends on the property. If it’s a true second home, (not rented out to other parties) a conventional loan is very easy to obtain – given credit and income qualifications of course. Some lenders will go as little as 10% down, although 20% is more common for a Freddie/Fannie loan. If the property is used AT ALL as a vacation rental (think VRBO, AirBnB, etc.) it puts it in an ‘investment’ category and the lending requirements change.Talk to our agents for great local lenders who are ready to help you. Seller financing is often an option, and more common in vacation/second homes than in traditional home markets.

Something we find many buyers have success with is to purchase a property with another party: two families going in together is very popular and cuts down the risk and the financial burden for both. And who doesn’t want to vacation with their besties anyway!
