Quality Family Time

The best benefit to purchasing a vacation property is the ability to spend quality time with your family and friends. Whether it be a home on the beach to enjoy some fun-in-the-sun, a place in close proximity to your favorite ski slopes or anything in between, the memories you’ll make with your family are priceless.

Tax Deductions

While we always recommend that you speak with a tax professional about any and all tax-related issues, tax deductions are available for investment and vacation properties. Some things that may be tax deductible are property taxes, mortgage interest, operating expenses and more, which could save you money on your investment.

Retirement Investment

Purchasing a vacation or investment property can be a savvy investment for when you’re ready to retire. If your investment property is bringing in supplemental income, that gives you more financial freedom than solely relying on your savings or retirement accounts. If you plan to move into your vacation home upon retirement, you can sell your current home and use the money made from the sale for your retirement. Either way, it could benefit you greatly in retirement.
