Vacation Homes are also known as secondary homes that people usually use for their recreational and holiday purposes. These homes are mostly located on hill stations or any remote areas. People living in colder areas often shift to their secondary homes when the winters get too hard in their areas. Meanwhile, Overseas mostly prefer to buy their vacation houses in their home town. So, whenever they visit their home town, they can live with their families.

Cooperative Housing Societies:
