How much and how many nights a year a vacation rental will rent for varies considerably from one home to the next. It is possible to cover your expenses with a vacation rental. What I have had clients do is have one of the rental agencies take a look at the home you are considering purchasing. They can give you a pretty good idea of how often and what it might rent for.
Do you have a certain that you areconsideringg purchasing? If so I can set up an appointment with one of the rentalagency'ss. Give me a call or send an email if I can help you further. 707-480-2007 firstname.lastname@example.org
