Can you share what the tax reasons would be for mortgaging a house if you dont need to?  I dont possibly see how the tax benefits, I’m assuming the tax deductions for paying interest with a mortgage, could possibly outweight paying the actual interest.  A tax dedcution only gets you back maybe 30% depending on your tax bracket so you still end up paying more in interest than you get back in the deductions for the lifetime of the loan.

It will differ greatly depending on what part of the country you live in. I’m in New England and for our condo we pay almost $1400/month plus an additional $300/month in condo fees. We also just got a 2nd house and that one is $1800/month. (Property taxes are included in those figures).

Good luck on your second home, thats so exciting, and to be near the water is awesome, Good luck!
