Oceanfront vacation homes are some of the most sought after rentals during the summer. With ease of access to the beach, owning an oceanfront vacation home is pretty much the dream. However, if you own a vacation home that’s not oceanfront or are looking to buy a second home that sits away from the seaside, it doesn’t mean your property can’t be successful. See why owning a home away from the oceanfront can still be super successful.

You Have Cheaper Rates

When your home isn’t oceanfront, you can lower your rates which eventually can make you more money. Many families look for affordable vacation rentals that won’t break the bank so they’ll search for homes with a lower weekly price tag. So, even though your rates are lower than oceanfront properties, you’ll still have a full calendar all summer long with families looking for a vacation that won’t break the bank!

Your Home Is Close To Other Attractions

Just because you don’t have an oceanfront home doesn’t mean visitors won’t seek out your property. If you’re walking distance from a great coffee shop or one of the best restaurants in town, some guests will swoon over that and book just for the convenience! In your property description, make sure things like that are highlighted and made known.

You Have Great Decor

Let’s face it, in today’s society of instagram likes and influencers, a lot of people look for a vacation home that’s super aesthetically pleasing. By having beautiful decor in your vacation home, it shows guests that you care about your property and you’re constantly staying updated and keeping up with what’s on trend. So when your guests have a beautiful place to spend time with family and friends, an oceanfront home won’t matter!

Your Home Has Top Notch Amenities

Even if your home is located just a 5 or 10 minute drive away from the closest beach access, that won’t be a deal breaker if your home is stocked with amazing amenities. Guests absolutely love having access to a private pool and hot tub so they can have the luxury of relaxing and entertaining at home. A rec room with a pool or foosball table and a great flat screen TV and Netflix or Hulu access is something that most potential guests like to see.

As a homeowner, when you care for your home, your home cares for your bank account. So even if your property isn’t sitting on a prime oceanfront lot, it can still be just as successful as a home that has an unobstructed view of the sea; especially when you list with Resort Realty. We’ll help you get your home in top shape and generate the most income.
