Are you thinking about buying a second home in The Ledges of St George community to use as a vacation rental home? There are several things to consider.

The first thing you should keep in mind is that vacation rental income often only supplements the carrying cost of a property - it doesn’t always translate to a profit once other expenses are paid.

For example, if your Ledges vacation rental is rented 30% of the time (optimistic), and you are getting $250/night, your rental would be bringing in about $3,750/month. Sounds good, huh? But not so fast. Property management fees can be as high as 50% of the gross rental income for nightly rentals (i.e. the Ledges of St George).  From this example, you would net $1,875 after management fees.

House Republican leaders proposed a tax bill Thursday that would reduce the popular mortgage interest deduction by 50%, for some households. Currently, homeowners can deduct interest payments for mortgage loans up to $1 million. With the newly proposed bill this deduction would be preserved for existing mortgages, but would limit new purchase loans up to $500,000.  In addition, the rule allowing homeowners to deduct property taxes from their taxable income would be capped at $10,000.  If passed, the bill will most assuredly have a negative impact on housing and real estate nationwide.  In a statement, National Association of Realtors President William Brown said, "Eliminating or nullifying the tax incentives for homeownership puts home values and…
