Vacation Home Turned Permanent Residence?

Some of us are lucky enough to have vacation homes to go to. This summer the weather has been exceptional and thus many people may find themselves spending more time than usual at the family cottage. 
Would you consider moving to your second property permanently to possibly alleviate some real estate financial stress? What about just for a change in lifestyle?

The attached article, written by Susan Boyce, highlights some rewarding aspects that may come from a  move like this. She continues to discuss how to go about the actual  transition and who may benefit from it. I found it to be an interesting read and hope you do as well!
