While there are a variety of accommodations available along the Outer Banks of North Carolina, vacation home rentals are among the most numerous. Jackie Hill, of Sun Realty, offers some tips that can make the process smoother:
- Decide whether a vacation home is the best option for you. Compare the cost effectiveness of a vacation home rental with other accommodations for your family or group.
- There are a wide variety of options, so let the real estate agent know what special things you want, such as a pool, elevator, rec room, hot tub, etc.
- Select the home that provides the activities, location, and pricing you want; one that is small enough or large enough; and one in the right area for the things you want to do.
- The earlier you make a reservation, the better the selection. Sun Realty will reserve homes a year in advance, so you can reserve the same home for your next visit if you like.
Hill notes that you can reserve your accommodations online, as more than half of Sun Realty’s clients do, but first-time visitors may want to call or take advantage of the online chat or email feature to get personal advice. (888-853-7770)
