Waterfront Homes for Sale
Waterfront homes for sale in Clark County, WA have a built-in natural asset. Whether it’s a river, bay, creek or pond, waterfront provides round enjoyment. Some buyers want easy access to boating and active water sports. And others just want a peaceful place to enjoy the relaxed, meditative environment.
Now that summer is in full swing, waterfront property is a great source of activity and escape from the heat. Of course, it’s a great way for kids to spend their summer days. Adults, too! And during the winter, it can be a great source of reflection and natural solace.
By nature, waterfront properties are limited for several reasons. There are only so many buildable lots available along any giver waterway. Plus, more recent shoreline protection regulations are designed to preserve water quality, so setbacks for new construction are restrictive. For the same reason, septic approval and building inspections are more rigorous along waterways. Be sure you are working with a broker who understands the restrictions and regulations associated with waterfront properties.

East Fork of the Lewis River Offers Nature as Neighbors
The East Fork of the Lewis River flows from Gifford Pinchot National Forest through Clark County to the North Fork of the Lewis River. The two converge in Woodland, WA then flow into the mighty Columbia River. Due to habitat restrictions and shoreline protections, existing homes are extremely desirable, so the market for waterfront properties tends to push prices higher. In particular, the demand for East Fork waterfront properties remains constant throughout the year.
