For many homeowners, owning a vacation home has been a lifelong dream. You’re finally at the point in your life where buying a vacation home is a feasible option – but where do you begin? It may seem like an overwhelming task picking that perfect vacation home, but with the following tips, you’ll be sure to pick the second home you’ve always dreamed of!:
Get well acquainted with the area. Thoroughly researching the area you’re looking to buy in is vital. Oftentimes, just vacationing in an area once doesn’t give you the whole picture – so be sure to do your research. For Bayside residents, that means becoming familiar with beautiful Fenwick Island, one of Delaware’s coveted “quiet resorts.”
Pick the perfect beach. Not all beaches are the same – some are busier than others, some are more suited for families, and some have a more robust local beach town. Even along the Maryland-Delaware shoreline, the different beach towns all have distinct atmospheres and personalities. Fenwick Island, for example, is perfect for vacation homeowners who want to avoid the hustle and bustle of nearby beach towns. With a pristine beach and relaxing vibe, Fenwick Island is truly a gem of the Delaware shore. And with beach access as easy as a shuttle ride away, it’s a breeze for Bayside residents to enjoy a beautiful day on the beach.
Think about proximity to your primary home. Having your vacation home within a reasonable drive from your primary home ensures that you’ll be able to get the most use out of it. Luckily for Bayside residents, our southern Delaware location is only a few hours away from many states in the mid-Atlantic region – including Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Virginia.
Consider resort-style living. Of course, living by the beach is great – but owning a vacation home can offer so much more! By buying a vacation home in a resort community, you can take full advantage of your purchase and enjoy all the amenities the community has to offer. Just ask our Bayside residents – having unsurpassed amenities within your coastal community means never having a dull moment!
Last year, vacation home sales accounted for 13% of all residential transactions – the highest share since 2006, according to information from the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Clearly, interest in vacation homes is on the rise – and for those interested in a beach home in Delaware’s Sussex County, Fenwick Island is the perfect option! Whether you opt for a single family home from Schell Brothers or NVHomes, or decide to customize with an Echelon Custom Home or a Marnie Custom Beach Home, you’ll be sure to enjoy your new vacation home from Bayside’s award-winning builders – and all the benefits of being a Bayside resident!
