The characteristics of repossessed second homes as an investment - An Overview


November 2011


It is difficult to explain or apply investment trends to homes that are built for residential tourism. The use of traditional economic indicators such as GDP, demographics, housing stocks, etc. cannot always be applied successfully.

Any businessperson will walk away from assets such as boats, second homes, etc. if it means he can secure his business and main home. He knows that when conditions improve, he can quickly regenerate these items, but while any weight tied to his legs threatens his survival they are jettisoned whatever the cost.
