Six Reasons to Invest in Vacation Real Estate in Texas

Vacations are a staple of American life and culture. The diversity of amazing states, locales, environments, and attractions the country has to offer help make it a fantastic country to live in. Texas could say the same for itself, as the state is larger than most countries around the world, and has everything from cities, to deserts, to oceans, to forests for its residents (and tourists) to enjoy. 

For real estate investors who're looking to expand their portfolio with vacation rental properties, Texas is by far the best state to consider. There are a massive number of reasons that Texas, and vacation rental properties as a whole, stand to help you make a ton of profit. To fully convince you, here are six key reasons to invest in vacation real estate in Texas. 

1. It Can Provide Reliable Passive Income

Passive income is the name of the game for most property investors. If you want to take advantage of the boom AirBnB has brought to vacation rentals, Texas is one of the best states to set the stage for your journey. Not only does it have some of the largest cities in the United States, but it also has perhaps the most cities in the US that attract tourists at a consistent rate. The variety in the type of tourists, from those looking to experience huge metros like Texas to those wanting to relax at some of Texas' beautiful beachfront towns, to people wanting beautiful desert vistas, provide endless opportunities for you to find massive ROIs with your vacation rental investments. 

2. Consistently Increasing Property Values

Texas is seeing its property values rise in a way that is almost difficult to believe. Austin has made headlines for its multi-decade explosion in property values, but other major cities and smaller towns are seeing the same type of growth throughout the Lonestar state. If you want to gain a near certainty that you'll make a lot of income with your investment, few states can provide the reliability and peace of mind that Texas gives. Those with capital to spare, and those looking to co-invest will have plentiful opportunities to make their mark in Texas. 

3. Diversifying Your Investments

Any professional who wants to make tons of profit within the real estate industry knows one thing: diversity is king. The more types of properties you have under your belt, the higher the chance that you gain of seeing insane profits during a boom. Additionally, diversity allows your portfolio to protect itself from any sudden dip in a single aspect of the real estate market. Vacation rentals are one of the most reliable areas of real estate, and Texas is ripe for investors looking to diversify their portfolios in this valuable area. 

4. Gain Access to a Built-in Vacation Spot

Vacationing can be expensive, and it's gaining costs in areas that many Americans never expected it to. Thankfully, if you become a successful vacation rental property investor, you'll likely have access to a built-in (and free) place to go on a vacation. Many investors who target vacation rentals look for out-of-state properties for this very reason. Texas' massive variety of amazing vacation rental properties makes the state that much more attractive for those that are looking to enjoy frequent breaks from their otherwise busy, productive lives. Even those that live inside Texas will invest in vacation rental properties in the state thanks to the sheer variety of locales and attractions in the massive state. 

5. Absolutely No Income Taxes

Texas is famous for having absolutely no income taxes. That's right, zero income taxes. For investors that are looking to make more on their investment than is humanly possible in most other states, Texas is a haven. Your research will be easier thanks to taxes being more simplified, and the incentives to invest in vacation rental properties in Texas do not stop there. Texas has often been considered the most landlord-friendly state in the entirety of the United States. 

6. Retire Earlier

Retiring is the goal for most working Americans. Real estate investment's mixture of huge profits, passive income, and flexibility combine to make it a great way to ensure you can retire as early as possible. If you hit gold, you could even retire and live on consistent passive income by the time you're forty (or even earlier)! Knowing the key cities to target when finding vacation rental properties to invest in, and following the other advice we've laid out above, will boost your chances of experiencing the bliss of retirement at an early age. With vacation rental properties under your belt, you'll experience an even sweeter, more adventurous retired life. 

Own a Vacation and Become Rich

Vacation rental properties allow you to become rich while enjoying a little slice of Americana heaven. Texas' massive amount of valuable vacation rentals, affordable investing prices, as well as a booming economy, and population growth, ensure that it should be featured in any serious real estate investor's portfolio.
