Lifestyle Asset Group Offers Fantastic Vacations, Smart Real Estate Investing and Great Returns

 When it comes to real estate investing, two key factors lead to success: finding the right location and timing the market.

Lifestyle Asset group got both right with the NYC acquisition for their LifestyleOne shareholders. After months of searching, the team toured 14 apartments in NYC and rejected every one due to lack of charm, undesirable location, and many other factors.  Then, in October of 2104, they found the perfect apartment in the right location and knew the time was right to buy.

The Vacation Home Market is on the Rise - Why Not Invest in 6 Properties?

The vacation home market has rebounded in a big way, according to recent statistics released by the National Association of Realtors. It accounted for just over one fifth of all home purchases last year, up a whopping 53% over 2013. The good news isn't quite as rosy for other segments of the real estate market, but those in a position to buy vacation property exhibit a newfound confidence that points toward future growth and increased stability in the second home market.
