Why You Should Buy A Vacation Home in Myrtle Beach

camelot3

Do you travel to Myrtle Beach multiple times during the year? If the answer is yes, then you should consider purchasing a vacation home. There are many reasons why buying is a smarter decision than continuing to book at a hotel year after year. We’re here to tell you about them!

Long-Term Profits

The market typically will fluctuate over time in different locations, but vacation properties are more likely to retain their value. Vacation homes are located in popular tourists areas and are in high demand. There are only certain areas where homes can be built, so these vacation homes tend to not lose value.

Tax Deductions

It’s always a great idea to rent your vacation home while you aren’t occupying it. A homeowner can charge rent for less than two weeks per year, and the interest on the mortgage and the property taxes are fully deductible from the gross income.

Familiarity

You can become comfortable with the area and learn the ins and outs of it. It’s also a great way to become social with people in the neighborhood and build long-term relationships for when you become a full-time resident.

Convenience

If you choose to buy a second home, then you always know you have a place to go. It could be a last-minute trip or a set number of getaways over the course of the year. You no longer have to worry about finding a vacation deal, because you have your own home to visit. Travel tends to become easier too because you can leave clothing and other items at your home.

Retirement Head Start

Buying a vacation home can get you one step closer to retirement. It allows you to escape your full-time residency and experience the benefits of your future home. You can escape those cold winter months, struggles of snow and more.

  2. Separate Needs from Wants – Sit down and make yourself a list of needs and wants before you begin your search. Order your needs and wants by priority. It’s always easy to make a list of 1’s, 2’s and 3’s. These are non-negotiable, preferable and something that is nice, but not necessary.

  4. See More than Three – Let yourself take in a variety of homes that are for sale. Even if you feel like you’ve found the perfect one, keep looking.

Are you considering moving to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina?

The Beach

It’s a no-brainer. Living in the Grand Strand means being only a few minutes from the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. During the peak season, Memorial Day-Labor Day, many locals will find private beaches to escape the tourism. There are many areas outside of downtown Myrtle Beach that have local beach access. The best part is when the peak season is over; locals have almost the whole beach to themselves! And, there are still warm beach days after Labor Day.

The Weather

Myrtle Beach has amazing weather all year-round. Beginning in March the temperatures will begin to hit the low 70’s. Over the next few months, temperatures will rise into the high 90’s, which means lots of beach time! During the winter months, November-February, the air tends to get a bit cooler. However, there will be occasional days when you can hit the beach.

The Restaurants and Entertainment

The best part about living in a tourist town is that you will never run out of things to do. There are over 100 restaurants along the Grand Strand from Mexican, Italian, seafood, and more. Myrtle Beach is known for the entertainment and attractions too. Locals can catch a show at The Alabama Theatre, or head out to grab a bite to eat and see a band play.

The Grand Strand is a wonderful place to live. If you’re ready to learn more about making a move, contact us today!
