Choosing The Area
It is important that if you are considering purchasing a condo in a place where you intend to go on vacation you will need to make sure that you have picked the area carefully. You will need to consider the placement of the condo in relation to the area that you will visit and the length of time that it will take to get there. You might also think of the placement in relation to good colleges because it could potentially be the ideal place for a child to live whilst going to college.

Choosing The Condo
Along with choosing the area the condo itself will also need careful consideration. You will need to have either your own front door with no communal area, this will protect your property from damage when you are not there, also you might consider a property that is not on the ground floor. These are easier to break into from the outside rather than a condo on the first or second floor of a building.

Furnishing The Condo
You will need to consider what you will be furnishing the condo with because in essence you will need two homes of furniture including some of the basic. It is a good idea to compile a list of the day to day items that you use before you go on a shopping spree. This will highlight some of the items that you use and do not automatically think about.

Leaving The Condo
You will need to think of the security that you will have in place whilst you are not there at the condo and to make sure that it is safe and secure. You could consider putting in security alarms but before you do this you will need to discuss this with your HOA in case there are any restrictions that you might need to take into consideration.

•    Make sure it is a place that you like.
•    Make sure there is enough for you to do in the area, long term.
•    Make sure it is a safe place to have a second home.

The Condo
•    Make sure that it is big enough for you to stay their comfortably.
•    Make sure that you like the facilities that it has.
•    Make sure that if you are there on holiday that you do not need to spend hours re-modelling.

•    Remember the basics.
•    Don’t go overboard you won’t be there that often.
•    Keep them simple.

Leaving The Condo
•    Think about security but check with the HOA before you install alarms, there might be rules or restrictions.
•    Think about the safety aspects of the position of the condo, the higher the condo the less likely of an opportunist break in.
