Make Money Renting Your Second Home

(NAPSI)—If you’re ever thinking about investing in a second home or listing your property as a vacation rental, you’ll be in good company. New research on the global second-home market reveals for the second straight year that more homeowners are buying a second home to use as a vacation rental rather than for their own use. Just under half of surveyed homeowners reported buying a second home primarily for use as a short-term rental.

Regardless of where or why homeowners are buying that second home, they all agree on one thing: Internet access is essential. Any Internet, no matter the speed, is the most important feature to homeowners planning to buy a second home. After Internet access, U.S. homeowners consider central air conditioning to be most important, whereas Greek, Portuguese and Italian homeowners believe having a balcony or terrace is essential, and British homeowners want access to a swimming pool.
