Which Bradley Beach Vacation Home Is Right For You?

Everyday life can get crazy at times, many people fantasize about running off to their own personal retreat right here at Bradley Beach. But how do you know which Bradley Beach vacation home is best for you?

Choosing a location

Do you want to be in the middle of all the activity, or enjoy the peace and quiet of a secluded location?  Is a condo right on the beach near all the hustle and bustle to your liking or a single family home a few blocks away on a quiet residential street more your cup of tea? Whichever environment you prefer, here are some things you should consider:

  • Popularity.  A house closer to the beach will usually cost more than a place off the beaten path.  At the same time, continued popularity may help you profit from appreciation.
  • Proximity to your home.  If you plan to visit regularly, look for a place that’s easy to get to. 
  • Rental possibilities.  If you’re hoping to offset some costs by renting the home for part of the year, find out about seasonal demand for rentals in the area.

Maintaining your getaway

Regular upkeep is more difficult with a Bradley Beach vacation home than with your primary residence, but no less important.  The value of the home, both as an investment and as a place you enjoy visiting, depends on good maintenance. 

If your primary residence is not far from Bradley Beach, you may want to make weekly visits to mow the lawn, water the garden, clean the gutters or shovel snow.  If doing it yourself is impractical, consider hiring a vacation property management company to provide maintenance services during the times when you’re not using the home.
