Beautiful Florida Weather!

I woke up this morning to the most beautiful weather of the year! A crisp 70-75 degrees, scattered clouds and a cool breeze… I can’t wait to go down to the ocean.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to stay in Daytona for the whole year. So I’ve decided to rent my place. It is a BEAUTIFUL 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo in Daytona Beach Shores. It is on the top floor (7th) with a private balcony overlooking the ocean. Beach access is directly across the street; 100 steps to sand.

Spend your $600 Rebate on a Daytona Beach Vacation

Vacation Rentals in Daytona Beach and Daytona Beach Shores are absolutely GREAT THIS YEAR!  With the housing market in a decline, a lot of owners have reduced their rates to boost occupancy.  Now is the perfect time to book your vacation…

Why is DAYTONA BEACH SHORES such a great place to stay? –  Simple.  LOCATION!!!  Daytona is made up of a stretch of beaches, all within a few miles.  The southern end is Daytona Beach Shores, which is the more upscale end of Daytona.  More elegant condos and very few shabby make this location a MUCH more enjoyable, FAMILY vacation spot. 

Take a look at this site (Vacation Rentals) to find your next vacation spot.  #35018 is my place.  Take a look and inquire about availability and specials! 

Planning your Daytona Vacation

Considered the “High Season,” this is the BEST time to visit Daytona Beach, FL!!!  The water is warm enough to swim, and the weather is warm enough to provide you with a golden tan for the summer!

My family has enjoyed numerous vacations at the “World’s Most Famous Beach” and believe me, there are a lot of things to do…

Oceanwalk, Daytona USA, Aquarium, Inlet Harbor, Down the Hatch, Lighthouse Point Park, casino boats, fishing charters, night clubs, famous sunsets…etc.

We know where to stay for ANY budget.  Check out craigslist for some reasonably priced condos.  Here’s mine.

Invest in a Condo at the Beach

BUY LOW, SELL HIGH…. invest in Florida real estate!

A beach condo is a fantastic way to take advantage of today’s housing market.  With prices at 10 year lows and with favorable lending conditions, why not invest in a beach condo in Florida?

NOW is the perfect time to invest your money in real estate.  Not to flip, but to enjoy.  Rent your condo year round to subsidize your expenses, AND allow you to OWN YOUR VACATION property. 

Oceanfront properties on Florida’s east coast (Daytona, Ormond, New Smryna, Cocoa, St. Augustine, etc.)  are affordable.  You can find a great 2 bed/2 bath condo for $350,000, and rent it weekly and earn $2000-$3000 each month.  You may not cover your mortgage and monthly association fees, but you will always have a place to vacation and you are guaranteed to build equity as the market rebounds!!!

Personally, I have had tremendous success, and a lot of fun, renting my family’s beach condo this year.  Finding respectful renters has not been difficult and we’ve provided a nice vacation for families. 

Curious?  If you interested in current real estate listings or renting a place on Florida’s east coast, just Post a reply and we will promptly respond. 

Don’t miss out on this opportunity.  For you.  For your future.  For your family.

Vacation Rental Advice – Rental Websites vs. Craigslist

Alright, we’ve got you thinking about Spring Break and going to the beach.  Let’s talk about HOW to find a place to stay. 

I’ve used Craigslist AND gone through vacation rental websites (VRWs) and both have their advantages and disadvantages.

VRW Advantages – Credibility.  The owner, whether family or realty owned, has paid the fees and gone through the processes that provide a sense of security to the renter. 

VRW Disadvantages – Price.  The renter pays a premium for this sense of security!  There are SO MANY sites out there, so in order to ensure maximum occupancy, the owner has probably paid to be on a number of listing sites.  This expense is simply passed on to the renter…

Craigslist Advantages – Cheap and Personal.  Craigslist’s vacation rental postings are made up of both amateur owners, and rental agencies looking to increase exposure.  Your best bet is to find the bargain rental from an owner who personally uses the property.  They are local and willing to sacrifice top dollar pricing for quality renters, but do not plan on renting their place full-time.  You can find some amazing last minute deals on Craigslist, believe me!

Craigslist Disadvantages – Am I going to get ripped off?  Warnings about frauds, scams, wiring money, etc. can get you a little nervous.  For some users this risk is not worth taking.

WRAP UP – Use Vacation Rental Websites to do your homework.  Find a location that is best for you, then scour the internet for the best deal… which may be from a mom and pop owner on craigslist with a low mortgage and reasonable rates.
