Why to Rent a House on Lake Martin this Summer
While summer technically doesn’t begin until late June, the summer spirit has been alive around Lake Martin for a few weeks. School ended in May which means we’ve already started seeing an uptick in visitors, and we happen to love it. Visitors to our lake is part of what keeps our community thriving. Some of you might think of Lake Martin as a no-brainer vacation destination while others of you have never considered the Lake as a spot to rent a home. We’re here today to tell you all about why you should rent a house on Lake Martin this summer. We’ll give you the scoop on where to rent and why to rent to make this summer on Lake Martin one to remember.
Renting a Lake Martin home can offer big savings.
In the era of AirBnB and VRBO, it might seem strange to think about using a realtor for renting a vacation home. However, often times, realtors are able to get you a better deal, negotiate different rental terms, and offer you a more personalized experience. In many cases, rental companies like those mentioned above charge a service fee to book through their app or website. This is on top of the fee that these companies charge for home owners to even list their homes on their sites. Today, many homeowners are skipping this step and using a trusted Lake Martin realtor, like the Lake Martin Team, instead. Since they’re cutting out the middle man, they’re also cutting out unnecessary fees making a fabulous rental an affordable experience too.
Pro Tip: All of our rentals offer discounted rates for weekly and sometimes monthly rentals. If you are able to stay in your Lake Martin rental longer than a week, come multiple times within a month, or visit throughout the summer, ask about longer term rental options to save money. Imagine having a lake home at your fingertips to use throughout the summer!
