The benefits of having a holiday home outside NYC


Having two homes is a dream come true for many people. If we consider a busy lifestyle and daily crowds in the city, it’s no wonder so many New Yorkers are having a holiday home outside NYC. Your piece of heaven can be in any location that suits you. Many people decide to buy a new home after moving to Brooklyn, and others look for different suburban areas. If you are looking forward to buying a holiday home, take a look at some benefits of having a home outside NYC.

Benefits of having a holiday home outside NYC

Not everyone can afford to have two homes. If you are one of the lucky ones, purchasing a new home will have many upsides. Here are some of the most important benefits of having a holiday home outside NYC:

  • Renting your home off-season
  • Using the other home as an extra storage space
  • Having a place to escape from the city crowds

Your holiday home can become an extra source of income.

Besides these benefits, there are also a few small downsides to having another home. If you decide to rent it, it could be difficult to keep up with the maintenance costs. So, make sure to choose a home in an attractive location, so that rent can cover these expenses.

Renting out the other home off-season

If you don’t plan to live in your holiday home during the entire year, renting it out can be a good way to earn money. All you need to do is move some of your belongings and make space for a tenant to move in. To relocate your belongings, contact reliable experts for moving and storage Brooklyn has to offer. Once you find a reliable tenant, make sure to set the rules straight away and check your home from time to time.

Using it as extra storage space

If you are keeping too many things in your NYC home, your holiday home can have another purpose. Instead of searching for different New York storage facilities, you can relocate some of your boxes to a holiday home. Many New Yorkers complain about living in small apartments since there is usually not enough space for all their belongings.

It’s a great place to relax and avoid city crowds

If you are not interested in profiting from your holiday home, there is another great reason to have it. These homes are a perfect NYC weekend getaway for those who live a busy life in the city. Avoiding crowds, noisy streets and everyday life is a need for many people. There are many benefits of having a holiday home outside NYC, but this is probably the best one.

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.

Does U.Santini Moving & Storage offer insurance?

Absolutely! We offer various types of insurance to protect your belongings, including a full replacement option. The cost depends on how much your things are worth and the deductible you choose.

How soon should I schedule my move?

It's a good idea to book your moving company at least 8 weeks before your move. If you're moving during the holidays or in the summer, it's best to schedule it 12 weeks ahead.

Do you provide packing supplies?

Yes, we do. Along with the necessary boxes and packing materials for your move, we offer various 'Saver' packages tailored to the size of your home. If you don't use all the boxes you purchased, you can return them to our team after the move, and we'll refund the unused portion.
