Cruising Around The World – Your Next Vacation Rental Investment?

Cruising Around The World – Your Next Vacation Rental Investment?

Posted by Maria Rekrut | March 26, 2013 |

Real estate investing. I can see in the not so far distant future, that you’ll be able to live and cruise year round. I predict that you’ll be able to buy “Time Shares” on Cruise ships. Baby Boomers who want a carefree life style and travel the world, not having to worry about their safety or worry where their next meal or sleeping arrangement, will be the target market.

Cruises come in all shapes and sizes, giving you tons of variety. One of the best features of a cruise is the flexibility it offers. You can literally go to a travel agent and name your port, or at least a general area from which you want to leave. In the United States alone, cruises leave from Alaska, Florida, California, and a number of other states. Caribbean cruises are popular, of course, but you can also find cruises in Europe, Africa and other countries throughout the world.

A cruise is super easy to plan, beyond budgeting. While some may find this a bit limiting, most enjoy the stress-free idea of not having to plan a vacation – they do the planning for you! You will find that most cruises include meals and entertainment, but on some, you have to pay for drinks and shore excursions.

Instead of having to put together an itinerary yourself, you just “cruise” along, literally. The company running the cruise determines the entertainment, you don’t have to leave your cruise ship to enjoy a variety of activities, as well as set the course, taking you to various ports of interest.

Location is not the only thing that is flexible. With a cruise, you can also be flexible about the amount of time you want to spend on vacation. Some cruises are very long, lasting 10 to 14 days or longer ranging with a month to 3 months.

On the other hand, most cruise lines offer shorter 3-day cruises for those with lower budgets or those who do not want to spend their entire vacation on a ship. You can also find short day cruises, so if you are going on vacation near a coast, you might want to look into an evening cruise, daylong sightseeing cruise, or other short tourist option.

So is this the way of the future? Retirement couldn’t be more attractive than being on a Cruise Ship. Investing in “vacation rental” properties like bed & breakfasts, time shares, short term housing and perhaps in the near future, cruise ship time shares are great alternatives to add to your real estate portfolio.

Happy Investing

    whoah this blog is excellent i love reading your articles. Keep up the good work! You know, a lot of people are searching around for this information, you can aid them greatly.

  23. One more thing I would like to talk about is that as an alternative to trying to accommodate all your online degree training on days that you finish work (since most people are exhausted when they get home), try to have most of your classes on the saturdays and sundays and only a couple of courses for weekdays, even if it means a little time away from your saturdays. This pays off because on the saturdays and sundays, you will be more rested and also concentrated in school work. Thanks a lot for the different ideas I have mastered from your web site.

  24. I have observed that over the course of constructing a relationship with real estate homeowners, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in each and every real estate deal, a commission is paid. Ultimately, FSBO sellers tend not to “save” the commission. Rather, they struggle to win the commission by doing an agent’s work. In doing so, they invest their money as well as time to accomplish, as best they could, the tasks of an broker. Those tasks include exposing the home by means of marketing, introducing the home to all buyers, making a sense of buyer emergency in order to trigger an offer, scheduling home inspections, managing qualification checks with the loan provider, supervising maintenance, and facilitating the closing of the deal.

  26. Hairstyles says:

    I do trust all of the ideas you’ve presented on your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for novices. May just you please extend them a little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

  27. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It抯 pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  28. you’ve a fantastic weblog right here! would you wish to make some invite posts on my blog?

  29. Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of any please share. Cheers!
