In fact, a report by Vrbo and Savills indicates more and more people are purchasing second homes with the intention of renting them out on a short-term basis. More than 40 percent of second home buyers indicated they intend to use it for vacation rentals. The report indicates while one-third of US owners rent their second homes just to help with mortgage costs, nearly 40% are deriving a secondary source of income.
