Buying a home is perhaps the most profitable investment. And if you can spend your vacation there, there are even more advantages.

Thus, GOBankingRates has published the names of 10 small towns in the United States where you should definitely buy real estate. When you are not living in the house, you can easily rent it out.

Pensacola, Florida

Average house price: $247,364

Potential monthly income: $3,166

Pensacola, located in Florida, is a popular vacation destination with reasonable housing prices and is in demand in the vacation rental market. Home to the Blue Angels and known as the "Cradle of Naval Aviation," Pensacola has a strong military presence as well as amazing museums and history worth exploring.

St. Augustine, Florida

Average house price: $452,452

Potential monthly income: $3,798

St. Augustine, located on the northeast coast of Florida, is known as the "oldest city in America". Founded in 1565, St. Augustine has many historical sites and museums worth visiting.

Birmingham, Alabama

Average house price: $99,176

Potential monthly income: $2051

Not exactly a small town (population almost 200,000), Birmingham has a small town charm. As a student city, it is filled with quaint coffee shops, delicious local cuisine, and riverside parks that make it a great place for outdoor recreation.

 

Bar Harbor, Maine

Potential monthly income: $6,130

Bar Harbor is a sleepy seaside town that offers beautiful views of Frenchman Bay, unique home architecture, and proximity to Acadia National Park.

Alpine, Texas

Average house price: $229,641

Potential monthly income: $2056

Alpine, Texas, is a little-known town near Big Bend National Park with a beautiful mountain backdrop and small-town charm. It is one of the largest cities near Big Bend, so it is a great place to rent a vacation rental.

Lake Shasta is a small town in northern California that has access to a large reservoir that is a popular vacation destination. Lake Shasta is known for its houseboats, which allows vacationers to travel the 365 miles of shoreline while enjoying the comforts of home.

Potential monthly income: $4,477

Yellowstone National Park was the first national park and with over 2 million acres of protected land to explore, it is one of the most popular destinations for summer travelers. More than 3 million people visit the park every year, and they all need a place to stay. West Yellowstone is a small town that borders Yellowstone National Park, from where you can get a look at the park as well as access to the Yellowstone River.

 

South Tucson, Arizona

Average house price: $185,524

Potential monthly income: $2050

Tucson is a popular city in Arizona, but South Tucson is a much smaller city with close access to Saguaro National Park. With an elevation of about 2500 feet, it's a little cooler than Phoenix, and its proximity to the national park and the Santa Rita Mountains makes it a hiker's paradise.
