This is a resort town and at any time, many of the Latitude 38 properties could be for sale. Please inquire if your specific home is for sale. If it is for sale, a real estate showing may be requested. The real estate broker must provide you with 24 hour notice of a possible showing. If your vacation rental sells, or somehow becomes unavailable between the time that you booked you home and the date of your arrival, the new owner does not have to honor your reservation.
