Buying waterfront real estate property especially in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Southwest Florida, there are something's that I would strongly encourage you to review or consider regardless of the statues of the property.
Some of these that I HAVE LISTED BELOW, yet they may not be important to you. But they may come into play down the road when you might be thinking about selling!
Now it is a Buyers Market, it is also the time to shop for the "Best Location" and "Amenities" on a waterfront home or a gulf access lot, while the selection is great! Here are some key things to keep in mind.
•1- What is the water level on the canal at low tide?
•2- How long of boat ride to the river? Gulf access?
•3- Are there any boat lifts, locks or a bridge that I would have to travel thru?
•4- What is the bridge height at high tide? At low tide?
•5- Condition of the sea wall? The dock? Active dock permit? Restrictions?
•6- Is the property on a main canal for boat traffic? What is access to a main canal?
•7- Fresh water home? Then what is the water level? How far can I travel in a boat?
•8- View? Can I buy interesting canal, better water view for the same money?
•9- Where can I see water from what rooms ? It's all about the View!
•10- What are the fishing possibly from my own dock? Yes some locations are better!
•11- How big of boat will fit on the lift? What is the weight limits on the boat lift?
There are lots of things to consider when buying waterfront real estate, Are choices here are great from canal from 80, 120,151,200 and 250 feet wide canals along with intersecting, end of a canal view and river views!
It helps to work with a Realtor that knows the waterways too! I fish and boat these local waters allow me to help you find your way to a dockside property, you can call your own!
