Affordability

One of the main questions that many ask is whether you can afford a vacation home or not. This would most likely be your second home and there are plenty of lenders who will want to assist you. We at North Beach Realty can assist you in finding the right lender to be able to purchase your beach vacation home in the area. Once you find one that you like we will help get the ball rolling on getting everything in place for you.

Does if Fit in Your Lifestyle?

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. And once the kids are grown and married with children, this is still the same place they will want to take their family too.

Will You Use It Often or Rent It Out?

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. This is a great way to be able to earn some extra money and help pay for the monthly mortgage too. Allowing other families to enjoy your vacation home just as much as you do, is what many buyers love to do. If you are still on the fence, then sit down and talk about it with each other. Or you can allow one of our agents to help you with this big decision too.

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. For many who live at the beach or have a vacation home at the beach, they love to decorate it with flamingo’s and have a coastal feel to them. 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

Decorate Your Vacation Home this Holiday Season

The holidays definitely bring out the best in us all and making your vacation home feel like your guests’ home too. Add some holiday décor throughout your home such as garland along the railings of the staircase and on the mantle. Breakout the holiday dishes and have a nice table runner or cloth on the dining room table. To also make your home more inviting, you could leave some holiday candy, chocolate candy or candy canes in a glass jar or bowl for your guests to enjoy.

There are many other ways that you can get your new vacation home ready for your guests, but these are just a few we thought you’d like.

Competition

Reasons Why You Should Look for Your Vacation Home this Fall

Did you know that during the fall months the market is better for anyone who is looking to purchase a vacation home? The reason that it is a better market is because during the warmer months there is more competition out there. The cooler months many of the sellers are looking to find the best buyer for their home and you as the homebuyer will have a better chance of getting the home without being outbid. This in return will mean you will be about to find the perfect vacation home in the area for a great deal.

Decorating Your Home

Another great reason as of why you should look for your vacation home this fall is the sales. We understand that furnishing a vacation home ca be a little pricey especially if you purchase it for its full price. But the good news is during the fall months a lot of home furnishings and other stores put their “summer” items on sale. What a better way to furnish your new home than with the items you were eying during the summer but for half the price. This can not only help you get some really nice things but can help you stay on budget too!

Weather is Perfect

Buying a home whether it’s a vacation home or your permanent home, looking at homes when the weather is nicer is a plus. Who wants to be hunting for homes during the dead heat of the summer when you could be searching for homes during the fall? Even though it can still be a little warm in the North Myrtle Beach area during the fall months, the humidity has lowered some. This can make not only searching for the home a little easier but can also make moving into one feel even better.

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. This can be a key component when starting the process of finding the perfect vacation home for your family and many more. If you are still in need of assistance just give us a call and we can help you out!

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.

What to Expect on the Day You Close on your Home

What to Expect on the Day You Close on your Home

Are you purchasing a home in the North Myrtle Beach area and aren’t sure what to expect on the day of closing? We at North Beach Realty can help you with those questions of uncertainty that comes along when you buy or sell your home. Many want to know when their closing date will be and where will the closing take place? Anyone who may be buying a home for the first time generally have many questions to ask as they prepare to settle into their new life as a homeowner. Let’s look below at what you can expect on the day you close on your new home.

Where Will the Closing Take Place?

For many of our clients, we are often asked after an offer has been accepted is ‘Where will the closing take place?’ Closings are generally held at lawyers’ offices or they can be held at the title company that issued the title policy for the house. This is normally a very neutral place that has access to technology so the documents can be signed and verified. This can be a very neutral place that does have access to technology so the documents can be signed and verified. You will be told where the closing will be at by your real estate agent once a date is confirmed.

Who Will Be at the Closing?

What to Expect on the Day You Close on your Home

We understand the importance of knowing who will be at the closing of your home. The buyers, sellers, lawyer, both Realtors will be at the closing. The mortgage lender may be there at the time of the closing so it can be a full table if everyone is there. Most times however it will be a small group at the time of the closing. There may be times where the buyers and sellers will go into the room at different times depending on the situation. If you have children, you can bring them along, but the process may be a little too long for the younger ones to sit through it.

What Will We Be Signing?

Many homeowners want to know what they will be signing on the day of closing and this is the important part. You’re closing documents will consist of the buyer’s packet and the seller’s packet. Most times the sellers will be the first to sign the paperwork as they normally have the least number of documents to sign. This process is the quickest of the whole day for everyone. Next up, it will be your turn to sign the documents. This is where you the buyer will go through each document and either initial or sign on the dotted line.  During the time of signing your documents, you will also have to pay the closing costs too. While you are finishing up with signing, the funds will be verified and soon you will be on your way to your new home.

What to Expect on the Day You Close on your Home

You will leave with your copy of the closing documents that you have just signed and the keys in your hands for your new home. If you are still on the hunt for a new home or vacation home in the North Myrtle Beach area, we’d love to help you find the one. And if you have just recently purchased a new home, congratulations and welcome to the area!
