Vacation homes can cost less than $100,000 in these counties in Maine, New York, Pennsylvania, Missouri, and Michigan.
Top vacation home counties are those where the vacant housing for seasonal, recreational, or occasional use made up 20% or more of the county’s total housing stock.
Many homeowners buy a second home expecting to use it for family vacations, as a rental, to gain equity, or – upon retirement – a future primary residence.
