Warm weather destinations and coastal towns, particularly in Florida, proved to be the most popular second-home markets for 2023 thus far, according to Pacaso.
The real estate marketplace that helps people buy and co-own a second home released data on the hottest second-home markets in the U.S. year to date. They utilized Optimal Blue data to identify the top 15 counties with the highest number of second-home transactions from Jan. 1 to May 3.
“We took a look at second-home transactions thus far in 2023, and it is no surprise that Florida dominates the list, with eight out of the 15 counties with the most second-home transactions in 2023,” says Pacaso CEO and co-founder Austin Allison. “The Sunshine State’s beautiful beaches and laid-back lifestyle continue to be major draws for buyers.”
Maricopa County, Arizona, took the No. 1 spot on the Pacaso list with the largest number of second-home transactions in the country for 2023. The county’s desert cities of Phoenix and Scottsdale offer world-class golf, chef-driven restaurants, ample hiking trails, and lots of entertainment options.
