Waterfront Homes Offer Nature as Neighbors

It may seem counterintuitive to talk about waterfront properties during a blustery winter, but it’s actually a great time to consider that lifestyle. We naturally think about being around water during a hot spell in summer – swimming, boating and action sports.  In contrast, winter’s chilly calm can offer us meditative solitude along a peaceful waterfront. Studies indicate that being close to water improves our mental health and well-being. So, basically, every season is a good season to consider waterfront property.

Buying or Selling Homes on Waterfront

While Clark County offers great opportunities for waterfront living, the challenges of regulations, market demand, and a limited inventory have made this a specialized market. Shoreline protections, alone, can dictate home site footprints, setbacks, and mitigation requirements that are very different from normal home sites. Buyers and sellers should work with a broker who has expertise in waterfront properties and knowing the market is extremely important.
