Think twice when buying recreational property before a city home

First-time homebuyers aching to get into the real estate market should be cautious about trying to bypass expensive urban housing by purchasing a recreational property before a city house, real estate experts say.

Some hot locations for cottages are currently seeing prices soar because of short supply, but these properties may now be as equally unaffordable as the big cities.
