You’ve always loved the beach, it’s your happy place, where you feel your best. You naturally reset and relax after spending time in the salty air.
Cherishing every second of your time while there, you can’t wait for the next opportunity to visit your favorite beach town.
Beach lovers dream of one day living in their favorite beach town. How amazing would that be? To live in the place you’ve loved your whole life, so good.
You may have thought to yourself, that you REALLY want to live at the beach. In conversations with friends, you’re always excited to proclaim that one day, you will become a beach homeowner.
Of course, it’s crossed your mind, but maybe you pushed it out thinking it’s not possible.
The beach is a place of peace, balance, tranquility, fun, and much more.
Why not live there?
Perhaps the thought of seriously taking action on that dream is overwhelming. You might think to yourself that it’s so far out of reach. Maybe you’re unsure about how to go about it. You may wonder if you can afford it, and if it’s realistic.
Here’s your invitation to not give up on your dream, and to actually take small steps towards it.
These actions will help give you clarity on what beach life living is really like, and how to make it happen.
Become a local: Pretend like you already live there. Experience the town like it’s your hometown, because one day it just might be. Find out where the locals go, where they shop for food, clothing, and automobile needs. If you love getting your hair done regularly, why not find a local salon or barber shop that locals recommend, enjoy a new style along with some local chat. Maybe check out the local church if that’s of interest, or the local library. Talk to people you meet along the way, ask questions about the town. Have an inner foodie in you, or love art? Find the favorite food and art scenes that locals attend, and mingle on in. Act as if it’s already happening, you are now a local. Enjoy!
Visit an open house: While walking in the neighborhoods you’re staying at, or while driving around town, seek out signs for open house events. Be sure to attend the event with the eyes and mindset of a serious buyer. Ask questions about the structure and function of the home, while also inquiring about the heart of the neighborhood. Ah, the inspiration one gets from visiting an open house. Not only will you feel more confident about your beach living dreams, you will gain more awareness as to what you truly desire in a beach home.
Dream, visualize, become inspired. Enjoy the open house!
Get to know a real estate agent: One day you will need someone to help you purchase that beach home. There’s a lot to learn in the home buying process. Feeling connected to someone you respect, and trust is important. This is someone you will work with closely.
