    Your advice is I am sure well meaning but it leaves out a very critical component. There is a very substantial credit that is received for primary residence that is not received for second homes that results in the tax bill of the second home to be far greater that the difference between 4 and 6 percent. A tax bill for a primary residence that is in the vicinity of 2400 goes to over 7000 for a second home not the 150% of the primary residence as this leads one to believe.

    • Hi Randy! Thanks so much for your comment and for coming to my blog. I actually do mention the additional credits in the primary home section, but leave it to the estimator to do the calculations on them. Primary home taxes end up being almost 1/3 of second home taxes!
