Vacation homes are a luxury that many people cannot afford, but that makes them the perfect investment for those that can. For real estate agents, this creates a viable niche. Whether you're helping a client find the perfect vacation spot, selling a vacation home to a potential home buyer, or helping some tourists find the perfect getaway home, vacation homes are almost everywhere.
Whether they're lakefront properties, directly on the beach, or deep in the woods, you'd be surprised by how many vacation homes sit empty across the United States alone. As a real estate agent, it is key to know your vacation listings in order to point potential buyers in the right direction based on what elements they are looking for in a second or third home.
Clients looking for a vacation home can be the perfect market. If they don't already have an area in mind, you may be able to point them towards locations they haven't thought of yet.

Simply market yourself as a vacation home expert, and try connecting with people online.
Even if the house isn't being actively lived in, you can still help your clients rake in money for it (and perhaps even take a share). If you are considering Airbnb listing then also read this article: Is Listing on Airbnb Better Than Traditional Renting.
