Nothing sells second homes like nostalgia

Lure 'echo boomers' with financial, family benefits

Good ideas come at you from weird places. Recently, I was reading the Wall Street Journal and came across a story — no, not about real estate — but about a bride that decided to get married at a summer camp called Camp Highlander in the mountains near Mills River, N.C.

As it turns out, the 31-year-old bride had been a camper there for several summers while she was in middle school. In other words, her choice of location for her wedding was mostly driven by nostalgia for a pleasant time in her childhood.
