Source If Money Weren't an Issue . . . Heck yeah! Why not!? Maybe. But only if I traveled often for work, and needed one. I might buy a second home, but only for investment purposes. No, I'd rather just vacation a lot. No, that's completely unnecessary and silly. Other. I'll tell you in the comments.

I would so buy all over the world. catesugar 5 years If money weren't an object, I would get together with an architect and would plan a green hideaway in the mountains somewhere near a freshwater spring in southern NSW/northern Victoria (Australia). It would have photovoltaic cells for power, water tanks and greywater recycling for water and would use the wood and granite from the site for the walls and flooring. A small, but sustainable green home. A private delight blending in with the bushland away from the city. jjlyn 5 years hmm, at first i thought "of course - why the heck not?!", but i think having one house you know is your real home you can always come back to would be the nicest. now, if money weren't an issue, i would definitely travel and stay at many different luxurious hotels and resorts, but i don't think i would actually purchase many other houses of my own. ElleJay 5 years My fiance's parents have a home on the lake where they live, and they own a condo at a ski resort, and a cabin on their hunting property.. i'm all for it ! Cinda_79 5 years I think that if money wasn't an issue but if it was, there are way more worthwhile things to spend your money on... sfbutterfly24 5 years I would love to have a house in Napa for weekends in the Spring and Summer. I would KILL to have a apartment in Paris. Other than that if I have the money to roll with multiple houses I am rolling thru some 5 stars hotels & resorts!! maisiegirl 5 years Yes, I think real estate is a great investment and a wonderful "write-off." I own my home in Denver and will shortly begin construction on a second home in Santa Fe. The real estate market prices in Santa Fe remain high and it will be the type of home that I can easily offer up for housing exchange with people in other cities and/or other countries, etc. I will also enjoy this home immensely. I would rather invest my money in real estate rather than investing in the stock market; I know I will see a great return on my money. This second home will also enable me to have an entirely different aesthetic than my Denver home, which I love. My Denver home is a historic Victorian and my Santa Fe home will be an eco-friendly modern home and I know I will love having both. Besides, I chose this second location because I have a great community of friends down in Santa Fe, the land is beautiful as it borders on National Forest land, my dogs LOVE it down there and also have many friends in that community, and I can hop in my car and be there in an easy, beautiful, scenic 5.5 hour drive or I can fly. I prefer the drive because the dogs can come with me. Having these two homes does not hold me back from traveling because I am a constant traveller. In the future, I hope to have a third home either in Italy or France. Who knows? Home is where your heart is. MandyJoBo 5 years I would buy two just because I'm constantly trying to decide if I want a condo or a house. Condo or house. Condo or house. I prefer to have an amazing view, doorman, 24/7 security and concierge, but I also want a private pool, more privacy, and greater leeway with decorating. If I could afford both, (and to frequently travel to and from both and a cat nanny to come with me) I'd get a house by the beach and a condo with an awesome view. I wouldn't get a house in any place exotic because I'd prefer to vacation to those. tdamji 5 years if i did...i'd choose a place in either India (cheaper homes and well-made and just so nice), or in europe, like a cottage in the UK. my roomie's parents have 3 homes in interior BC (cabin on the lake), Calgary (a mansion!), and a trailer-park spot in Arizona ...plus they travel to mexico for a few months of the year! they are hardly ever at each place!! makes me so mad... tdamji 5 years i have mixed feelings - considering environmental impact, i think it is sort of ridiculous to have more than one home...yet, i sometimes wish i could have a summer and winter home since i hate being too hot, so i'd go somewhere else in summer...but i'd like to spend the money on travelling, too. ah. it is a toss-up! oh, but i think it'd be cool to have a second home for more income - like let it out or something? megania 5 years I don't know. I'm not opposed to a second home, but I'd have to buy a first home first and I'd just play it by ear from there.... 0danielle0 5 years If I had the $, I'd have a house on the beach in San Diego, a loft in San Francisco, a place in Seattle and Manhattan, a house in Vancouver, and homes in Italy, Ireland, Kauai, Japan, etc... the list could go on and on... :) UrbanBohemian 5 years Absolutely. I think real estate is a smart investment. But on a less practical side, houses are just fun! The City Girl 5 years I WISH I could've bought the studio apartment in London that I had. It would have been the most ideal piede-a-terre for when I get back (but I kept the key to the crescent's private gardens, hehehe). But I was buying my flat in San Francisco at the time, and so money was definitely an issue! But no complaints, I love having my *one* property :-D JaimeLeah526 5 years Definitely. One in the city and one in the woods plus the one I have now which is somewhere in the middle. I'd be traveling all the time if money were no object. jedimasterarmi 5 years Vacations! having one house is a lot to keep up with, having a busy work schedule and all, why would i want two??? instead, why not go on vacation to places that you DONT have to clean? partysugar 5 years I would have an apartment here in San Francisco, an apartment on the beach in Conil de la Frontera, Spain and a country house in the campo de Cordoba, Spain. gab6784 5 years I definitely would... I'd have one home here in the city and one in Florida with the rest of my family - if I was really well off I'd have a Caribbean estate somewhere so I can vacation... Dana18 5 years of course!!!!! some place tropical. Twinkle 5 years We've considered it and will probably buy a summer house at some point. I wouldn't mind having a house in the US. jknocking 5 years Yes, my own little tuscan villa :-) laurelm 5 years buying property is a great investment i own one and am buying a second! bigsee 5 years Definitely! of course, i would need a first house (i live in an apt), but on days like today, where it dumps 4 inches of snow at the end of march, i'd love to jet off to a second house in, say, arizona. or on the beach. yay, sunshine. figurine 5 years More vacations! bellaressa 5 years Yes, I would like one overseas.
