Is it worth buying a second home as an investment?

Despite the constant changes in the markets together with the recent recessions, the real estate sector is one of the most resilient in times of crisis, mostly due to the profitability derived from purchases and rentals.

In this article we talk about buying a second home as an investment: the advantages and disadvantages of the process, and how to manage it in the simplest possible way.

Buying a second home as an investment for renting or resaling.

As you know, buying a second home requires an initial investment plus maintenance costs, both in terms of technical aspects and tax payments.

A purchase of this kind is usually amortised by renting the property in the long term (and thus also guaranteeing its use and profitability all year round), although it can also be kept for a period of time to sell it again at another time when its value has increased. Logically, the main advantage of these options is the possibility of earning passive income from an initial investment. 

However, this solution requires time and money. In case of renting, it is necessary to maintain communication with tenants and to manage their use and possible problems arising from their occupation. In addition, in case of long-term rental, your second home will not be available for your personal enjoyment.
