What is the Best Vacation Rental Investment in America? (Psst. We’re right in the middle of it.) The Florida panhandle ranked #1 on the 100 Best Places to Buy a Vacation Rental according to Rented Research and Weiss Analytics. Their annual report compares the cost of home ownership, short-term revenue potential, and annual appreciation.
The latest report in 2020 determined that Florida’s Panhandle offers the best returns on vacation home investments over every other market in the United States. The report also notes a “dramatic shift” in drive-to destinations and markets within two to five hours of major metro areas, which are seeing some of the highest returns in vacation home rentals.
Northwest Florida, which includes destinations from Panama City Beach to Scenic 30A to Destin, Florida, emerged as the clear winner as the top vacation home investment area in the U.S., even as the world continues to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Counties with vacation rentals in the Panhandle include Bay County, South Walton County, and Okaloosa County, Florida.
