From time to time, property managers get an offer to manage a resort-type property, such as a home on the beach or near a major tourist attraction. Many management firms have been very successful at managing these properties. However, if you're considering taking one of these properties on, don't get blindsided by the requirements-or the costs-of short-term or resort property management. It's a whole different animal compared to renting apartments and residential housing on standard 12-month leases! In most cases, you'll want to specialize in one industry or another. It's very difficult for property management firms to successfully and efficiently do both. They require very different staffing, technology platforms, training, and expertise. - Short-Term & Resort Property Management: Sales First of all, compared to managing a conventional residential property, the sales effort involved in getting an occupant for a resort property is extreme.

realtor.comAsk Matt Damon. Or perhaps don't. Either way, it takes a distinct soul to buy a zoo. One man in Texas hopes to find that special someone who's willing to take over his popular, 80-acre zoo south of Houston. The price for this animal attraction? Just $7 million.

Competition among buyers in many markets has gotten intense, so if you're serious about homeownership, you'd better get your act together. To point you in the right direction, we've prepared a road map of the home-buying process. From choosing the right professionals to signing that final contract, here are the typical steps you need to be aware of.
