Are you considering purchasing a summer home this year? The Emerald Coast is known for being a prime spot for a vacation home – there is no denying that. Who wouldn’t want to spend their summers or even fall vacations along some of the most beautiful beaches in the world? Even though they may be pretty obvious, let’s talk about some of the advantages of buying a summer home – especially one in Destin or South Walton.

How do you envision spending your retirement? If your vision involves long walks on the beach, Sunday brunch and wasted days on the golf course, buying a summer or vacation home on the Emerald Coast could turn your retirement dreams into a reality. Buy it now and have your dream retirement home paid for just in time to start living a luxury life of retirement.

Make an Investment and Increase Your Wealth

Buying a summer home is a great way to increase your wealth. A home is often a person’s biggest asset and having an additional home is an investment that will only increase your value in terms of wealth. This is especially true for those that choose to turn their summer home into a rental property. Especially in the South Walton and 30A areas, the cost of your summer home could easily be covered by rentals.

Friends and family, that is – there is no doubt that having a summer home in Destin or South Walton will bring all of your friends and family to the yard (so to speak). If you love the idea of weekends entertaining friends from out of town or having the whole family under one roof more often, a summer home is just what you need! I can already hear the laughter and family chatter and the pitter patter of little feet running down the halls to suit up for the beach.


It Can Provide Additional Income in the Long Run

Rental homes are very successful here on the Emerald Coast. If you buy the right home and hire the right management, a second home can provide you with years and years of additional income. Not to mention, you will have a beautiful home at the beach that you can utilize anytime that you want. Impromptu beach trips could become a regular occurrence for you and your family!

Because it’s a Summer Home…AT THE BEACH

Let’s be honest – is there any better advantage than this one? I mean, having a house at any beach is reason enough, but we’re talking about the Emerald Coast here. We are among some of the most beautiful beaches that this world has to offer. If you are in a position to buy a summer home, why wouldn’t you choose to buy one in the Destin or South Walton area? Because you would be missing out if you didn’t!
