The serene sea, the sound of the waves kissing the shore, the smell of sea water, the marvelous sunsets and sunrises—these are some of the wonderful things associated with waterfront living.
In spite of this, some may not consider a beach house as an option due to maintenance and insurance concerns. If this is true in your case, you may consider purchasing a condo, instead. Here are some reasons why a condo would be a good option for a waterfront property:
You won’t have to maintain your own boat dock/pier since many waterfront condos have their own. Some even have private beaches, hot tubs, and pools for their residents’ exclusive use. Having access to these amenities makes the entire cost of condo living less expensive than that of a home.
Less Upkeep Requirements
Owning a waterfront condo means you can enjoy more time on the water–fishing, boating, crabbing, and sunbathing–instead of spending a day fixing up or cleaning your home as a result of wear and tear, or unfavorable weather.
In condos, insurance expenses are distributed among homeowners, which means you will be paying less than the flood insurance for a waterfront home.
When you go on a vacation, you need not worry about leaving your home, since your neighbors are always inclined to keep the area safe. In many cases, condo associations have their own security. With more people keeping an eye on your place, you can travel worry-free.
