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.
Vacation homes can cost less than $100,000 in these counties in Maine, New York, Pennsylvania, Missouri, and Michigan.
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.
