5 Things to Consider Before Buying a Second Home
Prior to buying a second home, evaluate your reasons why you want to buy it. Will you be able to cover the cost of the house, the property manager, legal matters such as mortgage, taxes, insurance, utilities and even maintenance fees? Your reasons of buying a second house should counter the weight of these responsibilities to avoid regrets. Check this infographic from eMoov which details the things to consider before buying a second home.

This piece presents 5 questions you need to ask yourself before deciding to buy a second home. Each question is clearly labeled and emphasized with color, which is a helpful visual technique. The photos associated with each question do some work to build the narrative of a potential second-home buyer; however, they also lose the main points in the messaging. On that note, while the questions are clear, the accompanying text uses hypothesis and general questions rather than data or specific points. Quotes from experts are helpful but repeat other points. Also, the paragraph structure can slow down readers rather than propel them through the infographic. Overall, there's a helpful organization and question structure here, but the visuals and text both need a bit more focus. We'd give this an F.
