If I buy a home with a secondary/Vacation home mortgage how much time do I have to live in it before I can rent it out?Also:
- What does it mean to live in a house: having utilities in my name? Not claiming any rental income or depreciation on the tax returns?.. or something else?
- Can I move in and rent out a room immediately just to have company, and also show that on my tax returns? I am single. Will I be adhering to the second/vacation home mortgage requirements?
- What bad things can happen if I turn it into a rental “too soon” and what is the probability of those “bad things” happening?
Why: I can WFH for at least 6 months, so thinking to move from the bay area, CA to live close to the mountains for some time.
