Virginia Beach, Virginia (prfire) August 18, 2020 – A Virginia Beach real estate agent at the Katie Zarpas Group created a blog listing helpful tips when buying beach real estate. Following these tips can help you find and purchase the perfect beach home.
Purchasing beach real estate is an exciting opportunity to secure a beautiful space for vacations, weekend trips, and even rentals for additional income. However, buying a beach home isn’t always the same as buying a primary residence. There are a number of special considerations you’ll likely want to take into account before deciding to invest.
Before settling on a community, visit several to get a sense of the amenities in each and the crowds throughout the year. Some may be overfilled during the summer, while others can feel pleasantly busy. Create a list of features you definitely want in your new home and which would be good to have, then measure that list against your budget and chosen community. You may find that a different community can provide more for your budget. It’s also important to take the location of the home into consideration, as structures closer to the shore may require higher insurance premiums to account for water damage. Similarly, it may be helpful to research weather patterns in the area to determine the risk of hurricanes and strong storms. Finally, if you are considering renting your new property, remember that this decision may have an impact on the location, size, and features of the home you choose, as you’ll want it to be an attractive option to renters.
