Have specific questions? Jot them down and have them on hand when contacting potential agents.
  • Budget wisely. Family and group budgets are helpful necessities from the early planning stages through the end of your vacation. You will need to factor in rent, air conditioning, extra fees, groceries, transportation, and any other activities in which you wish to partake. When inquiring about a property, always ask about additional or hidden fees, as well as any possible down payments.
