Abstract [en]

Second homes are at the nexus of tourism and migration. Previous research has demonstrated thatsecond homes are important domiciles after retirement. Nevertheless, few studies have addressedthis issue specifically. Many households claim that they would use their second homes more often,and some even state that they would convert these homes into their new permanent homes. Whilethis is a known phenomenon, its geographical outcome is rather unknown. Hence, the purpose ofthis paper is to investigate the conversion of second homes into primary residences. This is donewith respect to timing and geographical patterns. A geo-referenced longitudinal populationdatabase allows for identifying converted properties and linking them to information of theirowners’ households. This facilitates a discussion regarding the impact of conversions on planningand service provision in host communities, too. The analysis refers to the time period from 1991to 2005.
