Who are the buyers?
Traditionally, there are two demographic groups that purchase vacation properties. The first is families with young children, who choose sites that combine relaxation and recreation possibilities for adults with fun activities for the kids.

The second group is that of people with grown children and grandchildren. They often start spending  more and more time at their vacation place, where they enjoy a more comfortable weather  than in their primary residence place, and the company of their families that come to visit. “Ironically, I see my children and grandchildren more often when are here in Santa Barbara, than in the city where we all live. Whenever we are here, at least one of our children comes to visit for the weekend with their families. The kids swim in the pool at Bajamar, the gentlemen play golf, us  ladies  go for breakfast to Ensenada. ”

Recently, there has also been an interest between the single, young and athletic, professionals who want a place to regain energy and recover from the stresses of work and enjoy sports and nature.

According to observers, not all people seeking vacation properties are necessarily motivated by the investment opportunity. People buy second and third homes in search of well-being and family life. Some want to start transitioning to retirement. But if you want to maximize the chances of appreciation, choose an oceanfront property. Because of evident geographical reasons, our planet has a limited number of properties overlooking the sea. It is also advisable to choose a place near a tourist town. Santa Barbara at Bajamar has the added benefit of being 40 minutes away from the U.S. border and San Diego County.

Advantages of having a property:

  • Lighter travel. If you have young children, play a sport such as surf or golf, you know what a hassle packing can be. But as a property owner, your equipment-be it crib or surfboard, will be expecting you at your arrival. The packing is simple: no more excuses for staying home this weekend.
  • Comforting routines. When we return to the same place time and time again, we develop routines that relax and comfort. We can cement friendships with other owners, adding to the pleasure of our stay. After a while, just by setting foot on our property we begin to relax.
  • Source of income. As an owner you  can rent your property to other vacationers.  And remember: most visitors to this area are Americans. The transactions in this region are usually conducted in dollars.
  • Quality time with family. You will have a property for years to come that all generations can enjoy, and a place to create memories that last a lifetime. Family members, who sometimes live in distant cities will be able to meet here. Little cousins play and interact, we adults strengthen our ties.
