Booking Early

It may be the middle of winter, but it's never too early to be thinking about summertime and sunshine! With 2020 behind us, we are setting our sights forward and never looking back ;) Last year was certainly one for records, and in more ways than one. The Outer Banks saw unprecedented numbers in regards to visitors, vacation rentals, and real estate sales. We are anticipating much of the same in 2021. What does this mean for you?

Booking early is so important! Here are some reasons why you should book your 2021 vacation rental as soon as possible:

Secure your spot

The aforementioned numbers are very exciting! More and more folks are discovering the beauty of the OBX. Vacation rentals are going quickly, there were many weeks where rental companies were at 100% capacity this past summer. To ensure, that you have a place to stay this summer, book early!

Get your best fit

As the homes are going quickly, it's understandable that the most desirable are going fast. If you have certain amenities you would like to secure (i.e. oceanfront, private pool, pet-friendly) we recommend reserving a house as soon as you can. Southern Shores Realty has a team of Vacation Specialists ready to help you find a great property with your desired needs.

Start planning

Once the property is booked, the biggest goal has been accomplished. You've secured your stay on the beautiful beaches of North Carolina! Put in that time-off request at work and get ready for the fun part: planning! There are so many amazing activities to take part in during your OBX vacation. We have lighthouse to climb, trails to be hiked, brunch to be munched, yoga to be done, fish to be caught, sights to be seen, and undoubtedly, relaxation to be had.

Start the countdown to vacation in 3..2..1!
