Ideas For Your New Vacation Home

Posted on: 10 June 2015

If you have purchased land meant for a vacation home, you are indeed lucky! Whether it's a weekend retreat or a home that will be used for for longer periods of time, getting away from a busy life can be a dream come true. If you are trying to decide what to do about the type of house you want, here are some ideas for you.

Roughing It - Of course, if you want to keep things extremely basic, you can simply camp out. If you decide on this approach, consider setting up several tents for different purposes. A large main tent would be great for meals and family gatherings. Set up a sort of living room with camp chairs, small portable tables and a picnic table for meals. Depending on the size of your family, consider having one tent for parents and another one for kids. The inclusion of a couple of comfortable camping chairs in the parent's tent would invite one-to-one conversations. Setting up a different tent for storage would be very helpful.

A Mobile Home Or An RV - A relatively easy way to have housing would be to buy a mobile home or a recreational vehicle. Even though both are small, they are also very affordable and, when you organize well, they provide all the essentials you and your family will need to live comfortably. 

A Manufactured Home - When you think of today's manufactured homes, just picture a lovely mobile home on steroids!

  • The most recent manufactured homes don't look very different from a traditional home. In fact, you can select a manufactured home that has state-of-the-art kitchen equipment and an ample sized utility room complete with the best in washers and dryers, with plenty of storage space in both areas. 
  • Have you always wanted a back porch or a front porch? You can select both of those features when you order a manufactured home. For that matter, you can even choose one with a wrap-around porch.
  • Consider selecting a manufactured home that includes a bay window. Not only will it be charming, but it will give your home added space for seating and for storage.
  • Whether you want the look of a cozy cottage, a rustic cabin or a traditional home with two floors, you can have that when you select a manufactured home.
  • Manufactured homes are affordable and they are made to last. You can always visit a mobile home park, like Country West Mobile Home Park, to see some of these homes for yourself.

Have a wonderful time planning your vacation home!


Saving Money On Real Estate

After I got promoted at work, I realized that there were a few things I wanted to do with all of the extra money. One of the biggest goals that I had was investing in local real estate, because I wanted to experience what it would be like to own multiple properties. It was really overwhelming at first to put in the offers, but after awhile I got really good at saving money on real estate and seeing the rewards. This blog is all about knowing which properties to invest in and focusing more carefully on the art of getting a great deal.
