These factors are not mutually exclusive and may be combined in different ways in different instances and over time, but this list covers most of the possible reasons for acquiring a second home. Gallent et al. (2005) focused primarily on why people have second homes in ‘rural’ areas, including coastal areas, but the factors equally apply to second (or more) homes acquired in any areas; for example, some people wish to escape from working in the country to enjoy the pleasures of urban life. Their emphasis on rural second homes, perhaps, led them to a strong interest in aspects of nostalgia for an idealised rural past.
However, properties which are the main residence of someone else, or which the owner intends to sell because they have moved are not counted as second homes. (DCLG, 2008: 174) Although a small proportion of second homes are rented, most commentators on second homes focus on second home ownership and the rest of this book is no exception. SEH data on the growth of second home ownership has the merit of having used a consistent definition of second homes. Thus changes over time are likely to be real rather than the result of changing definitions.
The value of most leisure consumption goods almost invariably depreciates, including ‘semi-mobile’ and ‘mobile’ second homes such as caravans (‘trailers’ in the USA), mobile homes, recreational vehicles (RVs), motor homes and tents (Hall and Müller, 2004b). The value of houses and apartments, however, usually appreciates at least in line with inflation, albeit largely as a function of increased land values. In a perceptive conference paper first presented 40 years ago, Dower (1977: 160) argued that second homes ‘are at the point of overlap between housing and tourism – neither squarely one or the other, but having the nature and implications of both’.
