What do you think of a vacation home as an investment?


You can buy a vacation home today for investment purposes as well as enjoyment. And yes, there may be tax benefits.

Some people buy a vacation home to use as a permanent retirement home later, which allows them to get ahead on their payments. Another benefit is that the interest and property taxes on a vacation home are tax-deductible.

Some real estate experts predict that vacation homes will appreciate in value due to rising demand from the aging Baby Boom generation. You also may be able to depreciate the property if you live in the house less than 14 days a year. Again, check with your tax professional.

You also need to consider whether you can afford to carry two mortgages, pay for the extra utilities and maintenance costs, and how this investment fits into your total personal finance picture.
