Why Beach Real Estate Property Can Help De-Stress You From the Daily Grind

23 Jan , 2016  

Let’s conduct an experiment here: do you have an alarm clock handy? If so, get it out. Plug it in. Next step: let’s hope this alarm clock has one of those features allowing you to loop all sorts of sounds while you sleep. You know what I’m talking about? I’m talking about the synthetic playback of all sorts of nature sounds —

  • Waterfalls
  • Raindrops
  • Wind
  • Crickets
That sort of thing. Go ahead and get this video started, by the way, while reading, and I can guarantee that this will be the best article you’ll ever read today.
I know, I know. You’re probably wondering where I’m going with this, especially when the title does say that this is something about the benefits of beach real estate property, so what am I getting at? Or am I just pulling your strings and leading you on some goose chase?

No Goose Chase Here: Just Beautiful Visuals and a Feast for the Ears

There’s just one more sound you would’ve heard on that video, which also could possibly be on your alarm clock. It’s a popular one. I am, of course, talking about the ever-familiar sound of the surf, perhaps some seagulls in the air, and the gentle crash of waves on the shore. It’s the beach.
Name one individual researching for zero-down homes, and automatically you’ll know that the term “beachfront property” perks people’s ears up real fast. It’s obvious.
The appeal of the getaway, the visuals, sights and lack of city sound make for a great meditative escape, relieving you of stress and recharging you for the next daily grind, whatever it may be.
Your instant benefit is that revitalization. You stay productive. You get the relaxation you need. Heck, some may even resort to their, well, resort every weekend to recharge for Monday and the rest of the workweek. In fact…that’s probably why they call it a “resort”!

Don’t Knock the Beach Real Estate Property

It just might be the best thing to ever happen to you, emotionally, spiritually, even practically from a profession standpoint. I’d go this far to say that you benefit the best as a writer, or an artist. Why?
Not only can you handle more of the ‘marketing’ and business aspect of your job during your regular days in the city, but you can do your work while on vacation. Every weekend. Or on any given week.
Bonus! Don’t cheat, though, and settle for the alarm clock. I’d suggest getting the beachfront property, going for the real thing. It’s always better.

Why Your Beachfront Investment Property Might Lose You Money in 2015

23 Jan , 2016  

Did you notice that it’s not summer right now? Yes. There’s snow on the ground. That blizzard occurred over on the east coast, record numbers, and the Midwest isn’t any slouch either. You can imagine, too, a lot of the summery spots don’t see a lot of action, because, yes, the temperatures drop and people start migrating back to where stores are still open and people can get some hot chocolate down their pipes.

Face it: your beachfront investment property’s down for the count (at least until the temp warms up and people flock back to the wind, sand and surf). What does that mean? It certainly doesn’t mean you’ve missed out on the H.O.P.E. Program and your prospects for a zero-down home.

You’re Losing Money, Though. A Lot of It.

It’s to be expected, and you’re probably prepared for it. After reading about all the disadvantages to having beachfront property, you practically dread it. Perhaps you offset the lost revenue by upping your prices on tenants, and that’s all fine and dandy, particularly when weather becomes an issue. You’ve got to pay for repairs, upkeep and maintenance, and it can get costly.
Is it all worth it, though? It depends.
If you notice: beachfront properties are known not only for the sand and surf, but for the stores and commerce associated with it. You buy your t-shirts, candy, surfboards, board shorts, coolers and kites. Economy soars for those communities, but when the winter hits, it all shuts down. It might not hurt you at all, but just in case you’re running a business in that community, not only do you have to worry about maintaining the beachfront home, you also have to worry about maintaining any bills you have for businesses you own.

Consider Your Finances Carefully

If you play your cards right, you just might sit fine on a beachfront property, perhaps living in it all year round. After all, grocery stores would still be open. You’d have all your necessities. As an investment property, though, consider that you might be pouring more money into it than getting out of it. Just a thought.
