What is a vacation home mortgage?

A vacation home mortgage, sometimes known as a second home mortgage or vacation property mortgage, is a home loan used for the express purpose of purchasing a second property.

What are the benefits of a vacation home mortgage?

Vacation home mortgages allow borrowers to finance a property that can be used for both personal use and investment. Vacation homes can be wonderful assets that add to your net worth, while also providing you and your family the perfect spot to vacation. Since vacation homes are often located in areas that draw tourism, their values are often higher than traditional homes.

In addition, vacation homes can be used as rental properties, allowing borrowers to find tenants, whether year-round or for specified lengths of time, that will provide a steady flow of extra income.

Difficulties in obtaining a vacation home mortgage

It can often be harder to get a vacation home mortgage than a traditional home loan. If you already have a mortgage on your primary property, lenders will see a second home mortgage as a financial risk. The difficulties involved can be even greater if you plan on using your vacation home as a revenue generating property.

It's with this in mind that borrowers should do all they can to show their finances are in order, including paying attention to their credit history. In order to get the best mortgage rate on a vacation home mortgage, it's important to show lenders that you're not a risk.
