From Memorial Day through July 4th, the summer seems new and fresh and long lasting. But from July 4th, it is a blink until back-to-school ads, Labor Day and all of the harbingers of Fall are on the horizon.
We feel this especially in our summer visitors. They are riding their bikes, while looking all around at Seabrook Island: the homes, the vegetation and just enjoying being away from their normal (and likely ver different!) day-to-day life. We, who live on the island, are quick to recognize that these dewy eyed visitors give us real benefits… they pay lots for their rentals, they add to that with activities like golf, tennis and horse rides, and they support restaurants and services which we could not support without them.
What do the owners of their rental properties get? First, done well, a stream of income, tax benefits and best of all, the use of their own property to create family memories! But, the rental world is a different place from even 5 years ago. Internet pictures garner the first rentals by enticing vacationers with their redone kitchens, spacious decks, well-appointed sleeping accommodations and more. Many rentals are the favorite of this or that renter, and they return year after year. Gone are the days when you unlock the door to your rental and find a musty, dusty and dated property. Now, what you see if what you get.
Rentals of all types are on the internet. From the old line Wyndham models to VRBO (vacation rental by owner), Air BnB and Homeaway to name just a few. As a rental property owner, you can choose the traditional set-up that covers everything, to go it alone rental plans that rely on different local vendors to provide the array of services. Which is right for you? We will help you weigh the pros and cons and get you started on your first year as an investment beach property owner.
So, with all the beach communities, how do you narrow your focus to Seabrook Island? First, Seabrook Island is owned by the property owners. No developer can change our course or get us into financial trouble. Second, our proximity to Charleston gives us tourist, medical, airport and entertainment choices not dreamed of in out-of-the-way beach communities. Last, but should most importantly, you will make friends will become like (maybe better than) your family. In good times and bad, this community will be there for you!
