The Vacation Home Market is on the Rise - Why Not Invest in 6 Properties?

The vacation home market has rebounded in a big way, according to recent statistics released by the National Association of Realtors. It accounted for just over one fifth of all home purchases last year, up a whopping 53% over 2013.
