The 10 Best Places For 2nd Homes

Florida grabbed 3 of the 10 spots.  This really shouldn’t be a surprise as the weather in Florida is great and the prices have come down so much.  It is affordable if you can afford to have the luxury of a second home.  Not everyone can and you need to make sure it is the right purchase for you.

Hard-nosed investors also are on the prowl, says Jan Reuter, head of residential real estate at U.S. Trust Bank of America Private Wealth Management: “We’ve seen an uptick in buying in just the last couple of months.”
