Investing in a second home market is a bit different than the purchase of a primary residence. What people typically want in a home for a full-time residence is different than their needs for a second home out on the mountainside. One of the most popular things people look for in their second homes is a lot of sleeping space for their friends and family on their ski weekend. People also like open floor plans on their second homes so everyone can cook, eat or watch movies together in a large great room.
What are your needs for a second home?
So, something to consider when buying a second home: What are your real needs for a second home? Remember, your second home is your home AWAY from home and as such you might have a different set of requirements for what your second home should be in order for you to fully enjoy it. For example, if your city home is sleek and modern you might actually want a second home located in the mountains that is rustic and cozy so that you feel like your second home is a place to go to get away from all the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Another consideration when buying a second home or investment property is that the loans for second homes will be at a slightly higher interest rate than for a primary residence.
