Second Homebuyers' Investment at Cinnamon Shore Helps Transform the Texas Coast

gbafNews28

PORT ARANSAS, Texas, Jan. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The first, New Urban neighborhood on the Texas Coast, established in 2007, has become the standard for coastal, luxury development in the Lone Star State. And 2020's performance at Cinnamon Shore, located in Port Aransas, Texas, shows why.

With a 54% increase in total vacation bookings and a 75% increase rental revenue in 2020 over 20219, it's apparent that word has spread about Cinnamon Shore. Furthermore, Cinnamon Shore North and its expansion, Cinnamon Shore South, together added almost 120 new homeowning families to the neighborhood, primarily from Houston, Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas-Ft. Worth—all driving distance.

“While 2020 was an anomaly, due to flexible work and school schedules during the pandemic, Texas vacationers and homebuyers were clearly attracted to Cinnamon Shore in record numbers, and we expect more of the same for 2021,” says Jeff Lamkin, developer of Cinnamon Shore. “We're offering a quality, master-planned resort community that, until recently, was only available in far-away Florida.”

With 136 total properties sold in 2020 and an 85% increase in total sales volume closed in 2020 over 2019, Cinnamon Shore Realty also had its best annual results. “People recognize the investment opportunity,” says Jodi Peters, managing broker at Cinnamon Shore Realty. “They're investing in real estate, but also in their family legacy.”

Great Potential for Rental Income

Homeowners at Cinnamon Shore often join the Vacation Rental pool, and they're seeing     typical rental income potential that ranges between $50,000 and 300,000 annually, depending on property type and location. “The numbers tell the story, and they can be a real incentive,” Lamkin says.

For instance, in 2020, a three-bedroom beach home at Cinnamon Shore generated an average rental revenue of $82,000, with the top producer garnering $119,000 in rental income. A three-bedroom condo earned an average $78,000 in rental revenue. Several, upscale beach homes generated $200,000-plus in rental revenue, with the top producer exceeding $300,000. And these figures include owner usage.

With on-site property management and an active Community Owners Association, guests and homeowners enjoy amenities such as resort-style pools,  a fitness center, family-friendly activities, and holiday events. Whether relaxing under signature, coral-and-white umbrellas or warming by beach bonfires, vacationers find the resort alluring year-round.

The Need for Growth

With the original community fully built, Cinnamon Shore South broke ground in 2018, and it's grown quickly, with the most recent phase selling out in almost three days last fall. With only a handful of home sites currently available at 'South,' a new phase will open in May.

The developer also has announced new acquisitions on the bay side of Mustang Island, along with a new Gulf-side tract—both set to be developed over the next decade and beyond. “We'll take our time and do it right,” Lamkin says, noting that the bay site has deep-water access and the potential for new amenities.

Selected as the location for show homes by magazines such as Southern Living and Coastal Living and chosen by Port Aransas as the partner and as the location for the city's new hotel and conference center, Cinnamon Shore has already made its mark on the Texas Coast. It's set to continue raising the standard.

About Cinnamon Shore 
Cinnamon Shore is a pedestrian-friendly planned community nestled behind the protective dunes on Mustang Island along the Texas Gulf Coast. It is the first new urbanism development for Sea Oats Group, which is fulfilling its vision of a traditional seaside village with a wide array of amenities and recreational facilities intertwined with beach cottages, luxury villas and vibrant town centers. Now comprised of two communities – the original, Cinnamon Shore North, and its new, 150-acre, Gulf-side expansion, Cinnamon Shore South – every detail of the master plan for both is designed to embrace the natural ambience of Mustang Island and the slow-paced charm of a walkable neighborhood.

Is BNPL the Secret to Curing the Post-Holiday Sales Slump?

gbafNews28

SYDNEY, Jan. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Retailers are feeling the heat as well. With less money coming in, they need to adjust their sales projections to account for a dip in the first few months as incoming cash levels out with the money spent at the end of the year.

One such action could be promoting Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) services such as Zip. Fintech companies such as Zip allow consumers to pay for their products, services and even household bills in a way that accounts for less money in the bank in January. These services are allowing consumers to spend in January throughout lower-income periods.

For instance, Zip allows its users to buy products and services now and then plan to pay the money back over multiple payment installments to lower the purchase's immediate cost. Users can choose a payment schedule that works for them, allowing weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayment options to suit the user.

What really gives this system punch is that most BNPL providers don't charge interest for on-time payments, setting them apart from traditional credit cards' high rates. With this difference, consumers can keep spending in January, knowing they won't have to make their full repayment until February or March.

After a year that devastated small business, Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) may be the secret to curing the post-holiday sales slump. Not only does it allow Australians to make the purchases they need (like BPay bill payments via Zip), but they can also spend on other things that they would buy in later months but would prefer to buy now. For example, to take advantage of a timely sale.

BNPL has now jumped from the internet into real life, creating the ability for consumers to pay later for their purchases in-store. Zip has partnered with Visa for their Tap & Zip buy now, pay later program, allowing users to pay contactless anywhere the credit card is accepted.
