Vacation rental property

Hello BP folks!

My name is Chuck Williams and I want to get out of the daily grind! I’m a graphic designer by day, night, and weekends. Last weeks podcast got me really inspired to make a pivot in my career. 

My wife recently quit her job and has a decent 401k that we won’t be contributing to since we are down to one income. Is it crazy to cash out what we can for a down payment on a vacation rental?

Thanks for your time!

 While vacation rentals are a great option have you thought about investing in rental properties instead? They’re typically less expensive and less of a headache. 

Thanks Antoine!
I’m still pretty new to everything so I have lots to learn. I’m not a handy person so I would use a property management company regardless unless there are some pitfalls there that I don’t know about.
