People in each city in the Philippines are hustling to provide for the things they need to survive in life. Every day is always a long day for people who are working for more than eight hours. It is a hassle, but that’s what most people are doing today. All these hard-working folks deserve a break to compensate for their efforts driving or commuting to be in their office at or before 7 o’clock in the morning, following commands from their bosses, and working on a pile of paper at their desks.
Well, aside from these hassles, there are still a lot of things to do outside that’s why they are the ones that need rest the most. Rest is best after a long tiring day of work. Imagine laying on a soft bed inside a peaceful and green community after working in a crowded and fast-paced environment, it feels like heaven, right?
People who are living in a place that they call home, where they can comfortably put down all their worries and stress from work, are lucky enough because they can at least stop functioning for a while. What more to those people who have a second home?
Benefits of Having a Second Home
In the past, having a second home was so expensive and it is only for those who can afford to pay extra for a new home. But today is not the case for most of us because we can now own more than two homes in a quiet and maaliwalas community since property developers are now selling quality houses along with lots for an affordable price, which is ideal for people who are on a budget but want to own a second home.
There are benefits that people can take advantage of when they decide to buy a second home, and here are some examples.
Advantages of Tax Deductions
Little did you know that owning a second home can help you deduct some taxes you are responsible to pay like the taxes you are paying for your first home. If you have a second home, and you are occupying your space for more than 14 days, then you are qualified to have some breaks on taxes like mortgage interest, property taxes, and home equity loan interest.
However, if you decide to rent out your second home for more than 14 days, the income from the rent is subject to income tax. In case you don’t want to pay taxes for renting your second real estate property, you can just rent your home for only 14 days or less to make it free from rental income tax.
A Vacation Home and a Rental Home
If you own a second home, you can possibly earn income other than considering it as a vacation house during vacations and holidays. Aside from occupying it for 14 days and more, you can let other people live in your second home and gain profit from it.
Renting out your second home to target tenants could probably provide you with a stable cash flow every month, which you can use to settle some income taxes since you renting out your home, and it will also help you settle payments for fixtures of the house’s features that your second home is requiring, a benefit that your first home can offer. It will not only help you settle your expenses, but it can also give you profit that you can also use for your daily expenses.

But of course, there is one that will always stand out. Have you ever heard of the city of Davao? Well, it is actually a 1st class highly urbanized city located in the region of Davao.

The city is also home to a variety of sites that can take your breath away. There are lots of cultural and historical heritage, churches, beaches, and other tourist spots that are being visited by many. Did you know that Davao City houses one of the tallest mountains in the Philippines? Yes, Mount Apo is located in the municipality of Davao City. It means that the town is popular with most Filipinos.
