Buyers: 5 Reasons to Consider Waterfront Living

Waterfront Living - Buy a Home - Coach Realtors

Our REALTORS® know that one of the biggest draws of Long Island is the chance to live by the shore!

Seaside property is always in demand in Long Island. Whether you're looking at Nassau County homes for sale or Suffolk County homes for sale, you shouldn't pass up the opportunity to visit some coastal homes.

Many people have never considered that they might be able to find the ideal coastal property for them. If you haven't thought about it before, now is the perfect time to give coastal living a much closer look. It is more attainable than you think!

When you buy a waterfront property, you're not just getting a new home. The truth is, you're signing on to a whole new lifestyle that can be deeply rewarding. For the right buyer, the benefits are undeniable.

Let's look at the top reasons waterfront living can't be beat:

  1. Convenient Frontage and Water Access
    With your waterfront property, you'll also receive something that any boater covets: The chance to get out on the water any time of the day or night from the convenience of your own ramp or other access point. And whether you're on the boat or relaxing onshore, the tranquility will ease your mind.

  2. High Potential to Accumulate Value
    Waterfront properties typically see the highest appreciation among homes of similar size. When it comes to amenities, few other things compare to living right on the water. That makes them a terrific medium- or long-term investment. When the time comes to sell, you'll be well taken care of!

  3. The Ideal Self-Rental Property
    When vacationers visit Long Island, they're just as eager to hit the shore as locals. Waterfront property is an enticing prospect for a platform like Airbnb. Maintained and marketed correctly, you can parlay your waterfront home into a profitable vacation rental venture and pay your mortgage costs at the same time.

  4. Permanent Views for Your Enjoyment
    When you buy a home in an area under development, you never know what the view will look like next year – let alone in 10 or 15. Most waterfront areas have strict regulations about development, so the value of the view you fell in love with is protected for the long haul.

  5. Feel More Connected to Nature Than Ever
    In today's modern, busy world, it can be difficult to make the time you need to spend a few hours out in nature. A waterfront property has a built-in solution: With the wealth of sea birds, plant life, fish, and small animals that make a waterfront their home, you will always have your own little natural oasis.

When you want to buy a waterfront home, it's crucial to work with an expert in these unique properties. Your real estate agent can help you find one that offers the beauty and privacy you want, all while helping you make sure that your dreams for the property can be realized.

6 Tips for Buying a Waterfront Home On Long Island

Buying a Waterfront Home
Buying a waterfront home in Long Island is an exciting choice, and you'll find plenty of great options throughout the island. As you start your search, it's important to consider the unique factors that go into purchasing a waterfront home and make sure that you're prepared for the process. Our real estate agents know Long Island waterfront properties, and we've got six proven tips to help you land the waterfront home of your dreams.

Waterfront 101: Learn 6 Tips for Buying a Waterfront Home on Long Island

  1. Evaluate the Entire Property
    It's important to evaluate not just the home, but the entire property. How close is the home to the water, and how is the natural scenery? Do you love the view? Is the water clean and inviting, or is it murky? Consider what is most important to you in a waterfront property, and make sure that the home meets your must-have requirements. While you can always change the home, changing the property itself can be much tougher.

  2. Make Sure the Structure Is Sound
    Of course, you'll also want to make sure that the home meets all of your needs, and that the structure is ready to withstand the potential risks of being located on the waterfront. How is the home's exposure to flooding, and what kind of shape is the structure in overall? Is the home built to withstand the wind and weather? The right waterfront home will be in great shape, and able to withstand the elements.

  3. Get Pre-Approved to Streamline Shopping
    You won't be the only one shopping for a waterfront home on Long Island, so it's a good idea to do everything you can to streamline the process and make your offer stand out. Getting pre-approved for a mortgage is a great idea when shopping for a waterfront property. Pre-approval will give you a strong idea of what you have to spend, and show sellers that you're a serious buyer.

  4. Work with an Experienced Real Estate Agent
    Since there are some extra considerations when shopping on the waterfront, it really helps to have an agent who understands the market for waterfront homes. The right agent will be able to answer your questions, help you find the right listings, and help you evaluate which properties provide the best match. An experienced agent will also be able to help you put together an offer that outshines the competition.

  5. Get to Know the Neighbors
    Getting to know the neighborhood is another key to finding the right waterfront home, and talking to your potential neighbors is a great way to get honest feedback on the community. Don't be afraid to ask around, and get the inside scoop on what the neighborhood is like throughout the year from the people who know best.

  6. Learn What You Can Do with Your Waterfront Property
    Do you want to add a dock, seawall, or other waterfront structure to the property when you buy it? Prepare early, and learn exactly what local government agencies require when making additions to the property. It's also a good idea to learn what activities are permitted on the body of water where the home is located, and make sure that you can enjoy the hobbies that attracted you to a waterfront home in the first place.
