Protect your rental property investment.

Furnishing a vacation rental property is very different than furnishing your home. Incorporate quality, durable furnishings that will get the most for your money. Look for items that will be convenient for your guests and last over time and heavy regular use. 


Summer Home Style - September 2009
Get the Most Out of Your Property Refurbishments

Labor Day Weekend marked the official end to the Summer 2009 vacation rental season. Soon management companies will start the process of property evaluations for owners to begin refurbishments for next year. Summer occupancies were better than anticipated, but during generally slower times it can still be difficult to determine a refurbishment budget and what updates to make.

You don't need to completely re-do a condo to make meaningful and noticeable results! Your ultimate goal is to protect your investment, please your guests, and invite the opportunity for repeat rentals. Start by reviewing your guests' comments from this past summer as well as feedback and recommendations from your property management company. Next look at existing furniture that is still in good condition - working with what you have and making small improvements can go a long way. Sometimes a fresh coat of paint on the walls, touching up nicks on bedroom or living room pieces, or re-covering dining chair or barstool seats in a new fabric can begin to freshen up a unit.

If you can only select a few larger items to address at this time, be sure to choose improvements that will get you the best impact for your budget and make a great impression on your guests. For example, adding vibrant new bedspreads is an easy and affordable way to update your existing bedroom furniture. Replacing the sleeper sofa or other worn upholstery improves your guests' comfort during their stay. Durable hospitality-quality draperies make a significant visual impact on your overall decor and more much less problematic than vertical blinds.

A Summer Home is available to assist property owners however we can throughout the course of your refurbishment project. Complimentary fabric samples are always available upon request. We can also inspect your unit, offer our suggestions for improvements, and help you determine a budget to get the best results.

Myrtle Beach Boardwalk Project Gets Underway

The Myrtle Beach City Council recently approved the final plans to move forward with a downtown Myrtle Beach boardwalk project. The 1.2 mile oceanfront boardwalk and promenade development will stretch from 14th Avenue North to First Avenue North, running between the 14th Avenue Pier and Second Avenue Pier. The project will span three phases incorporating a wooden boardwalk, shops, and parks.  Construction is scheduled to begin soon after Labor Day. The boardwalk section plans to be completed before summer 2010 with future construction continuing during a number of winter seasons.
