5 Reasons To Stay In A Rental Home At The Lake

What are your plans for vacations this summer? If you are planning to vacation at the Lake of the Ozarks, the first step is deciding where to stay. Some people choose to buy a second home at the Lake of the Ozarks so they can have a place of their own to use as frequently as they'd like. If you only plan to come down to the Lake once or twice a year, however, you may not want to purchase a home of your own. If that's the case, Eagle's Nest Realty, Inc. can still help you out. We are proud to offer stellar vacation home rentals at the Lake of the Ozarks for vacationers just like you!

5 Reasons To Stay In A Vacation Home

Why would you choose to stay in a rental home over a hotel or condo? It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that staying in a private home for your vacation offers several distinct advantages. Here are a few of the reasons you're going to love staying in a vacation property at the Lake of the Ozarks.

1. Added Privacy
When you stay in a hotel or condominium, you're surrounded on all sides by other rooms/units with other vacationers. While this can contribute to a fun atmosphere, it can also come with its fair share of drawbacks. Your neighbors may be noisy, and you (in turn) may have to alter your evening plans to avoid waking the neighbors. Staying in your private home gives you greater flexibility and privacy.

2. Your Own Space
You may not actually be the owner of a second home in Sunrise Beach MO, but it will certainly feel like it! There's nothing compared to the comfort of a private home, especially if you plan to stay at the Lake for more than two or three nights. 

This charming lakefront cottage is available for rent!

3. All The Benefits (None Of The Work)
For all its advantages, owning a second home comes with a large amount of work, too. You have to keep the property clean, organized, and stocked with your various essentials. You also have to handle any unexpected maintenance or repairs that may arise. By renting a vacation home, you get to enjoy all the benefits of having a private waterfront property at the Lake of the Ozarks without any of the extra work.

4. More Space
Unless you want to shell out a pretty penny, your hotel room will probably have a pretty limited amount of space. A bedroom and perhaps an attached living area are good, but they can start to feel cramped after more than a night or two. Conversely, even the smallest vacation homes will probably have at least 1,000 square feet. Give it a few days, and your whole family will definitely appreciate the extra room!

5. Room To Share
What's better than a vacation at the Lake? A vacation at the Lake with your extended family or closest friends! If you are planning a trip with several people, a vacation property gives you the opportunity to all stay in the same place. This allows for more quality time together - AND a chance for you to keep individual costs down! By splitting the cost of your rental home, your Lake vacation will become even more affordable.

4 Things Your REALTOR® Wants You To Know

Your real estate agent in Sunrise Beach MO will be right there by your side for the entire process of buying or selling a home at the Lake of the Ozarks. For buyers, we'll be there to help you hunt for the perfect home, extend your offer, negotiate on the final sale price, and walk you through the closing. For sellers, we will be there to help you stage and list your home, aggressively market your property to get it in front of as many buyers as possible, negotiate the sale price, and assist with the closing.

As your advocate, guide, and confidant, it is our job to make the entire process easier. In this vein, here are a few things we want everyone to know about real estate at the Lake of the Ozarks.

1. SELLERS - Your House Might Not Be Ready For Listing Photos
If you have never sold a home (or haven't in several years) you may not be up-to-date on everything that needs to happen before taking listing photos and marketing your home. EVERYTHING needs to be deep-cleaned, and ALL clutter needs to be removed or, at the very least, hidden - all the way down to the magnets and pictures covering your refrigerator. Any work you may have already done to prepare your home for listing photos will be hugely helpful, but be prepared for your agent to prescribe a few other tasks before photos are taken.

2. BUYERS - You Won't Be Able To Afford Every House
Your real estate agent can show you any home you want, but ultimately it is entirely up to your mortgage lender to determine how much house you can afford. Consequently, we strongly encourage our buyers to talk with a lender before they begin searching for homes in earnest. By getting prequalified or pre-approved before seriously beginning the home search, you will be able to have a realistic understanding of the price points will be able to afford. Once you know your price parameters, your agent will be able to help you find homes within that price range.

3. SELLERS - No One Can Actually Predict How Quickly Your Home Will Sell
The market is hot right now and most homes are selling quickly, but it is impossible to truly predict how quickly a buyer will extend an offer that you wish to accept. It will depend on the quality of the offers you receive, how much foot traffic and general visibility your home gets, and how much effort your agent puts into marketing your home. A good agent will go out of his or her way to ensure that your property gets in front of as many buyers as possible, but again - it is impossible to predict exactly how quickly things will happen.

4. BUYERS - Just Because You Can Afford To Buy A House Doesn't Mean That You Should
Your lender will tell you how much house you can afford to purchase based on your debt-to-income ratio. The debt-to-income ratio looks at how much of your monthly income is tied up going to preexisting debts and the new debt you will have once you take out a home loan; typically, lenders will want to make sure that your total debts will not equate to more than 40-42% of your gross income. However, they don't take into account the myriad of other expenses you will have to face as a homeowner, such as repairs, maintenance, upgrades, utilities, etc. Buying a cheaper home with a smaller mortgage payment will leave more room for these other (sometimes unpredictable) expenses.

Eagle's Nest Realty Will Be Here For You Every Step Of The Way!
