What to Consider When Buying a Year-Round Vacation Home

Posted on July 27, 2020 By Mark Arbeit and CO

Owning a beachfront property for summer vacation makes sense — whichever Jersey Shore neighborhood you call home, the beach is never too far! However, if summer is the only time that you come down, are you getting optimal value out of your property? To get the most enjoyment out of your shore home, consider how favorable conditions make for a great stay — even after the summer.

Temperate Weather

Finding an area where the year-round climate doesn’t get too cold as soon as the days grow shorter and the leaves begin to fall is vital for your vacation home. One of the benefits of the Jersey Shore comes from New Jersey’s year-round temperate climate. Everyone knows that the summer beach weather at the shore is the main draw; however, during the autumn and winter months, the coast experiences a crisp, refreshing transition. With temperatures often hovering around the sixties, the shore offers prospective homeowners an autumnal retreat.

Laid-Back Atmosphere

Everyone knows the summer crowds and the energy they give to the summer season down the shore. However, there are times when you need a genuinely relaxing vacation or perfectly-timed long weekend to recharge your batteries — and those masses can have an opposite effect. Going down to your beach house outside of the summer still offers several benefits; You still get the fresh salty sea breeze, local cuisines, and ample opportunity to challenge a member of your family to a spirited round of mini-golf without having to deal with the large tourist-infused groups that dominate the warmer months. 

Off-Season Appeal

With a year-round vacation property, you want to ensure that your home’s area gets the full effect of seasonal change. While most people equate the quintessential beach experience to the summer, enjoying the beach experience across the other seasons is an underrated sight to behold. One of New Jersey’s temperate climate benefits is that you get to experience all four seasons in their full glory.
