When you’re choosing a place to live, waterfront communities are an excellent option to consider because they bring tranquility, picturesque vistas, and a multitude of recreational opportunities. Waterfront communities are residential neighborhoods developed around water; this can include lakes, wetlands, oceans, and rivers.
Florida is home to many waterfront homes that are located in master-planned communities. Since the state is surrounded by Central Florida Lakes, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic Ocean, you can find waterfront real estate here, such as beach-front condos and lake-front homes to suit various lifestyles and budgets.
Waterfront communities don’t just provide scenic landscapes, but they also provide various amenities and recreational opportunities, such as boating, fishing, tennis, golf courses, fitness facilities, and clubhouses.
If you’re considering living in one, here are some of the pros and cons that you should know about:
- Resale Value Will be Profitable – Waterfront homes have great potential and sell for more than those without water views. If you’re planning to move out, you can easily sell your home to cover ownership costs and even make a profit.
- The Views are Permanent – If you buy a home in an area, which is still under development, there’s no guarantee that your view will be the same after five to ten years. However, waterfront properties will have permanent views that will stay the same or get even better regardless of how many years pass.
- Restrictions and Regulations – Waterfront communities have restrictions, and as a homeowner, you will have to follow certain rules. For example, you may have a coastal commission that will restrict renovation or resizing of your home. You will need to get their permission before going through with any decisions.
- Lack of Privacy- Since Waterfront communities are located near water bodies, that can be an attraction for tourists looking to visit these ‘local attractions’. You may find more people in your neighborhood and more crowding than a standard neighborhood unless you choose a gated community.
