We understand that finding the perfect home to become your vacation home is just the beginning and is so hard to choose. Our North Beach Realty Agents are ready to help you and your family find the right vacation home in the area to help allow you to sit back and relax.

What Kind of Vacation Home Do You Want?

This is often the hardest question for many families to answer because they all would like to have something different. For some, it may seem like having a condo within a resort is the way to go while others may want a standalone vacation home. The choices are unlimited when you are looking in North Myrtle Beach. Another part of this decision and question is how many will be vacationing with you each year. Knowing this will also help you in deciding you should go with a condo or vacation home!

Amenities of a Condo

For many families, they are often looking into what amenities come with a condo vacation home. This can, in return, help them decide if a condo will work for you and your family. Some of the amenities that will possibly come with your condo will vary depending on where you choose to purchase. If you decide to purchase your vacation home within a resort here is what you could have as some of the amenities:

  • Pool (Indoor or Outdoor)
  • Washer/Dryer in Unit
  • Trash Pickup
  • Fully Furnished Condo
  • Exercise Room

Another thing you may have to think about is when you purchase a condo vacation home, you will have an allowance of how many weeks you will have access to the condo. While some condos will allow you full access to it year-round, you may find that some of them will not. That is a big decision, but if you are a family who can’t sneak away anytime you choose, then maybe this is the best option for you!

Amenities of a Vacation Home

When you purchase a vacation home, you are buying a second home. This could be your home to live in a part-time of the year if you say live in colder states. It could also be used as a vacation rental that will allow you to allow other families into the home and let them have their dream vacation. Some of the amenities that you may find with your new vacation home are:

  • Pool
  • Access to the Beach
  • Oceanfront or Oceanview
  • More massive yard for family play
  • Full Kitchen and open layout of home
  • Backyard for your pets
  • Larger home for your family
  • Garage or storage

There are so many different options for your family when you purchase a vacation home in the area.

While there are many other options and reasons as to why you need to purchase your vacation home now, these are just a few reasons we wanted to share with you. If you’d like your vacation home to be in a neighborhood or oceanfront, we can help you find it! No matter how far-fetched your dream vacation home may be, our Agents at North Beach Realty are here to help you in your search!

Beaches are Open!

March & April were really long months, right?!! Now it’s May and we here at North Beach Vacations are happy to announce that our vacation rentals are open and available to you! Keep reading to learn more about Grand Strand openings below…

We are so delighted to welcome you back!

We hope that you and your family, friends, and loved ones are healthy and safe.

We want to keep you up-to-date as we learn about the lift of many restrictions in North Myrtle Beach, Horry County and South Carolina. As of last Friday, short-term rentals have reopened after an order last month requiring short-term accommodations and hotels to shut down.
 
We are happy to let you know that during your stay, you WILL be able to go to the beach. All beach accesses along the Grand Strand have reopened. Please note, social distancing is required and groups of 3 or more will be separated (families from same permanent residence excluded).
 
If shopping is on your mind…Horry County retailers are allowed to reopen, including clothing, furniture stores, jewelers and florists, after McMaster lifted the order that closed businesses. Among those are some shops at Barefoot Landing and Tanger Outlets.
 
Boating and other water sports may also be enjoyed as public docks and boat landings in Horry County have also reopened. It’s important to note that the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources have advised boaters to not gather on beaches, sandbars or islands.

Watch the sunrise as you sip your morning coffee…

Restaurants Are Open – Outdoor Dining Only

As of Monday, May 4th, Gov. Henry McMaster has allowed restaurants to open for outdoor dining only. For restaurants that aren’t able to provide outdoor dining services to customers, they may still offer takeout, curbside, and delivery services.

One other thing we wanted to point out is that resort pools, fitness centers, game rooms, saunas–pretty much all communal amenities, etc.–are still closed until May 13th, unless the Governor’s order is lifted or extended.

Plant a Garden this Summer in your New Backyard

Did you and your family just purchase a new home in the North Myrtle Beach area and are looking to grow fresh fruits and vegetables? We at North Beach Realty can assist you in helping you find which vegetables or fruits may work well in your garden. We understand that owning a new home can be a little daunting at times, but planting a garden in your backyard can give you and your family something to do together.

What Do You Want to Plant?

Plant a Garden this Summer in your New Backyard

When it comes to planting a new garden, it may be a little challenging to figure out what to plant. For many locals, you may find them growing things in their backyard like tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelons, zucchini, squash, and green beans. But if you are looking for something a little more specific, do a little research in to see what the best for the area is. This way, you can make a quick plan on what you’d like to plant in your first garden at your home.

Pick a Spot in your Backyard

Picking a spot in your backyard is a vital task for any homeowner, whether they live in the North Myrtle Beach area or not. You will want to find a spot that gets at least 6-8 hours of full sun each day. Another thing that you can do is check out the local garden center and see what each vegetable or fruit needs as far as shade or full sunlight. Making sure that you choose the right place in your backyard will help you know what plants work best for you.

Do You Want Raised Beds or Use the Soil?

After you have picked a spot for your garden in your backyard, it will soon be time to make another decision. This time you will be deciding if you want to dig up your yard or if you want to use raised beds. If you choose to build a raised bed, then this is the easier way to go. For many new homeowners, they don’t want to dedicate a particular part of their yard just for a garden, so they choose the raised beds. The good thing about using the raised beds is it can be a lot more back-friendly for those who don’t want to bend over to tend to their garden. If you choose to use the soil, then you will be continuing to turn down to care for it, weed, and get the ground ready. No matter what decision you make, it will be an excellent garden for your family!

The final step to planting a garden in your new backyard is to plant it and water it. For many of the fruits and vegetables, you will find that late spring is the best time to plant. But we would suggest that you check each plant to make sure it is the right time. If you don’t have a backyard that you can grow a garden, now is the time to start looking. We at North Beach Realty look forward to helping you and your family find yours forever home in North Myrtle Beach!
