Having the perfect beach day starts at home— especially if you are taking kids along. Even if you are just going for the day, there is some preplanning that needs to take place. Take a look at the tips below to make sure you have the most successful beach day trip.

  1. Make a checklist: Write out everything that you need to take with you and as your packing it into your beach bag or cooler, check it off of your list. This way you will ensure that you won’t forget anything. This might include things like cash, sunscreen, sunglasses, towels, beach chairs, water, snacks, a change of clothes, etc.
  2. Choose a beach: If you live in New England, it’s likely that you have multiple beaches to choose from. And you might be looking for a different beach experience than the one you always go to. Maybe you usually take your day trip to a popular beach, but you know that it is going to be crowded and full of life. But this time you’re looking for a quieter day, so you might want to visit a private or town beach that doesn’t have a boardwalk and hundreds of people around.
  3. Pack the night before: Along with packing from your checklist, it’s best to pack everything up the night before. And if you are ambitious, pack the car the night before as well (everything but the drinks and refrigerated food).
  4. Set a plan for the day: Make sure all parties involved know how the day will pan out. Do you plan on leaving town at 7am or 9am? Do you plan on packing a lunch or grabbing something at the boardwalk? Do you plan on staying at the beach until 2pm or 5pm? These are all very important things to consider beforehand and to include everyone in on the decision.
Hope that these tips help you hit the road sooner and without a worry— except for where you’re going to set up at the beach.

Living in an area that receives lots of tourist traffic offers rewards and challenges. Depending on your personality and lifestyle, buying or renting a home in a location that attracts thousands of tourists a day might be perfect. These lists of rewards and challenges could save you time, money and frustration. They can also help to prepare you for life in a city that, like a magnet, pulls in scores of people from around the country or world each day.

Rewards

  • Entertainment, arts, cultural and educational events abound in these cities. Many high profile events take place within several blocks, making it easy for you to take part in the events without having to travel far.
  • People from diverse backgrounds visit and live in a major metropolis. It’s a great way to interact with people from all over the world.
  • Food is as rich and diverse as are the people who live in the area. Whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian or meat eater, you’ll find something that pleases your appetite. Highly respected chefs often operate or prepare meals at restaurants in these fast-paced cities. When you dine, you could be feasting on a meal prepared by one of the world’s top chefs.
  • Professional sports teams make their home in the busiest towns. If you live in a city like Boston, New York or Miami, you’ll have a pick of professional sports teams that you can root for.
  • Finding an excellent college or university to attend should be easy. Schools in major cities are among the top in the nation.In addition to attracting talented students from around the country, these postsecondary schools attract some of the sharpest students in the world.
  • Thriving business districts are located in popular cities, giving you more opportunities to land a job that aligns with your passions.

Challenges

  • When you go downtown, you’ll have to move in and out of crowds. Buy or rent a house in a city like Orlando, Honolulu or New York and, during peak tourist seasons, you may find yourself weaving in and out of people just to walk down sidewalks.
  • Parking is not cheap. Expect to spend money each time you drive into town and need to park. That or opt to take public transportation when you visit high traffic spots in the city.
  • You won’t see a lot of trees and grass in the busiest parts of town. If you’re a nature lover, you may prefer buying a house 30 minutes or more away from the heart of the city.
  • Homes in popular cities are pricey. Apartment rents are higher in popular cities too. Work with an area savvy real estate agent to find the best housing options.

Buy or rent a house in a tranquil part of town and you might not feel like you’re living in a town that operates at high octane levels. You might not feel like the streets of the town that you live in are brewing with millions of people, locals and tourists. What you will have is the option to withdrawal from crowds or go into bustling, thriving places like shopping, arts, sports and cultural communities within minutes. That alone is a rare option that smaller, less talked about cities generally cannot offer.

Selling your home can be scary, particularly for those who are listing a residence for the first time. Fortunately, we're here to help you face your home selling fears so you can overcome them before you add your property to the real estate market.

Now, let's take a look at three common home selling fears, along with some of the ways that you can put these concerns to rest.

1. I won't be able to get the best price for my home.

Getting the best price for a house is the number one concern for most home sellers, and for good reason. Lucky for you, there are several quick, easy ways to ensure you can maximize the value of your residence.

First, check out the housing market and see how your house stacks up against similar residences that are available. This will enable you to collect valuable housing market data that can help you price your house accordingly.

Don't forget to complete a home appraisal too. A property appraiser will allocate the necessary time and resources to analyze your house's interior and exterior. Then, he or she will provide a report that outlines your home's strengths and weaknesses so you can better understand the true value of your residence.

2. My home will stay on the real estate market for years to come.

Let's face it – a home seller likely wants his or her residence to sell as soon as it hits the real estate market. Sometimes, a house can linger on the real estate market for an extended period of time. And when this happens, it is easy to question whether a homebuyer will ever submit an offer on a residence.

As a home seller, it is important to ensure your house makes a positive first impression on homebuyers.

Spend some time mowing the front lawn, clearing dirt and debris from walkways and performing assorted home exterior improvements. This will enable you to boost your house's curb appeal instantly.

Also, declutter your home's interior as much as possible. By doing so, you can make it simple for homebuyers to envision what life would be like if they decide to purchase your residence.

3. When the time comes, I won't be able to relocate to a new home.

After you sell your residence, you'll need to move to a new address. The relocation process often can be difficult, especially if you have lived in a particular house for many years.

A real estate agent can help you prepare for the relocation process. This housing market professional understands all aspects of the home selling cycle, and as such, will be happy to offer expert assistance at all times.

Although selling a home may seem challenging, an informed home seller will understand what it takes to get the best results possible. And if you address your home selling fears now, you should have no trouble optimizing the value of your house and accelerating the home selling process.
