I don't own one, but I have sold a lot of them. Most buyers come to a place they are familiar with. In this market almost all listings of VR homes provide rental income statements

I do not Raymond Henson .  I assume you are not talking about time shares here. When I lived in MN both were very common and I know that my folks rented out their lake cottage the first few years they owned it to help pay for it. That didn't last long but mostly because at the time my dad was an up and commer and payed it off pretty quickly.

No.  It would have to be a place I'd want to visit regularly.  My folks and I did look into buying a home in the Cotswolds when were were over there earlier this year.  Ended up doing the numbers and it just didn't make sense, even with AirBnB for when it wasn't in use.

In Florida where my wife and I have joined her family for Christmas. Hooked up with a knowledgeable agent on short term rentals and then bought directly from owners after that.

I do not own a vacation rental. If I did, it would be in driving distance...say, Lake Tahoe or in my favorite place... Hawaii.

We own a vacation home, we do not rent it out. We bought in Palm Springs we loved the area. Every year when we went down for our winter vacation we would stay in different area's and resorts. That helped us decide where we wanted to purchase.

I am located in a very desirable tourist area of the Great Smoky Mountains.  I do not own one, but most investors want to be in or around Pigeon Forge Tn.  More of my investors want Douglas Lake Property. It has the potential for  the best return on their investment and they can also use it when they need to.  There are management companies to take care of the rentals for all out of towners that want that kind of help.

The family owns 3. Maui, Palm Desert & Lake Berryessa. The decision had to due with distance, average length of stay, frequency of use, ROI, and the recreation and lifestyle each afforded our family. Also, kids factored in.

Where do you like to vacation?  Do your research there.  What is your long term for purchasing a long term rental

I do not. I have owned other homes for my kids to live in while in college. One thing I'd consider if purchasing a vacation home is how often do I want to go to it. I live in Cary, NC. I'd love to have a property at the beach which is just a couple hours away. I could go often and could get to it fairly quickly if something went wrong. Many people here have beach or mountain homes or both. I'd love to own something on a FL beach but, I feel I wouldn't get there often enough.

I did and just sold my last. But i am searching for more. I chose Hampton Beach NH. The largest beach in NH, also the cleanest in the area. The rentals rates are very high. I never had had any vacant units. The timing was right to sell at a high value and look for a new project to buy low fix, build equity and rent again,

I wish you all the best with this.  No doubt it will be where you like to visit and the numbers will need to pencil out.

This is a pleasant subject to explore. I know of a guy who invests near military bases and recreational places. One way to get a fastrac is to look-up rentals in any area and read the ads, study location & note amenities

Here in Florida. 

Research. I liked it, wanted to come back and knew others would also. AND, the data was readily available. The reality was, the data, if relied upon without my personal conviction, would have been a 'no go.'

Who could have known? The overwhelming client base is weddings, not vacationers. Life is a box of chocolates.....
