For many buyers who are looking to get a second home or beach vacation home, they will often think ahead and wonder if it will be a good investment. If you take a look at the past vacations you have taken, how many times did you stay in a hotel or a vacation rental? If you can see that getting your own beach vacation home will be worth it, then it will most likely fit into your lifestyle. If your children are young, then maybe this is the way to go because think of all the vacation and memories you can make.

Another good question that you might want to consider is if you will use it often or will you rent it out. If you have a certain week or weeks that you love to go on vacation, then why not rent out the property for the rest of the time.

The holidays aren’t complete unless you have a Christmas tree in your home. After Thanksgiving Day is normally when families put up their trees and decorate them. This year you could have a small tree in your home and decorate it in a beach theme.

Be sure to put non-breakable ornaments on the tree and trim the tree with all the pretty colors you may find at the beach. No home or vacation home is complete this year without trimming the tree as a family!

Decorate the Outside

It’s time to haul out the holly and decorate the outside of your new vacation home. Adding festive decorations to your home can make your home inviting to your friends, family and guests. Grab some fresh garland, lights and a beautiful wreath to decorate the front porch of your vacation rental. Add a few lanterns with some unbreakable ornaments and add that perfect bow to the top of each one. Place a new festive welcome mat by the front door and hang that wreath on the door. Your family and guests will definitely be inviting for anyone who visits your vacation home.

It Feels Like Home

Add some holiday décor throughout your home such as garland along the railings of the staircase and on the mantle.

Do Your Research

4 Things to Think About When Purchasing Your First Vacation Home

Before you even think about purchasing your very first vacation home, you must do some research. This is a very important key factor when it comes to buying a vacation home or a new home for anyone. Research to see which areas the best for families are, look into what kind of budget you have and see where many families are looking to vacation in.

What Location is the Best?

Deciding on where you’d like to purchase your first vacation home is a key element. Just like buying a home in your home state, buying a vacation home in the right area is going to help you. Of course, finding a home that is located either on the beach or close by will be the ticket for you. You will find that purchasing a home closer to the water is what will help you be able to market your vacation home to potential renters. This will also help generate a better revenue and if you ever need to sell the vacation home, the resale is better. But finding a home in a certain location for the perfect price is what we want for you too.

Size of the Vacation Home

4 Things to Think About When Purchasing Your First Vacation Home

Another key factor for searching for the perfect vacation home is going to be the size of it. Sometimes you may find that purchasing a larger home will not only cost more money but can be a little hard to handle too. We know that when you go on vacation the last thing you want to do is clean a big home, so maybe look for a smaller home. Many vacation home owners do start out with a smaller home and then they work their way up from there. And since this would be your very first investment property, we know that you will want to keep the cost as low as possible. This way you won’t have to worry about if you can afford it or not.

Naming Your Vacation Rental and Why It’s Important

Naming Your Vacation Rental and Why It's Important

Have you recently purchased a new beach home but it didn’t come with a name? Or did it come with a name but you don’t care for it and want a new one? We at North Beach Realty can tell you that having a name for your vacation rental is a must. Below are just a few of the reasons that naming your home is so important. 

Create a Brand for your Beach Vacation Home

A name is a way to establish an identity for your vacation home. It’s a way to build up a brand and help generate word of mouth marketing for you. A name is another way for guests to help remember your rental. We can guarantee you that when someone who stays in a vacation home a year from now is not going to remember a house number. They will instead remember the name of your home such as “Endless Summers” because when you vacation in Myrtle Beach it feels like the summers will never end.  It helps you in the long run with keeping the home booked for years to come. 

It’s your Vacation Homes Face to the World

Naming Your Vacation Rental and Why It's Important

Another good reason in naming your house is it gives your home and identity to the world. Your homes name is a way to attract new guests and help retain former ones. But be sure not to make it too long because let’s face it, who wants to remember a name that is way too long? You don’t want to make it something generic like 4-Bedroom House on the Blvd. Make it something that people can remember like “Shabby Chic by the Sea” or “Gone Coastal”.

It Tells a Story & Gives Guest Something to Remember

Whether your beach house is a personal vacation home or a vacation rental, give it a name that will tell a story. A story that you wouldn’t mind sharing in a welcome book that gives your guests more insight in the name of your home. It also is a good way to help give a lasting impression with your guests for making it more memorable knowing how you came up with the name. Also, if you are wanting those guests to return, this will help them want to come again. It also sets your house apart from the others. You house reflects who you are as a person whether it’s the style of the home, how you decorate it and even how you name it. 

How to Find the Best Name for Your Beach Home

When you are trying to come up with a name for your beach house, consider the brand you want to represent to your guests. Sometimes trying to find something that means the most to you and your family works best on the name of your home. Come up with something witty or really something you can see yourself never wanting to change. Make it a name that will be remembered for years to come by all your guests and their friends.
