Nature as Neighbors – Waterfront Property

As Spring approaches, we all spend more time in the great outdoors – especially on the water. Some folks want easy access to boating and active water sports, while others just want a peaceful place to enjoy the relaxed, meditative environment. Water activities here are so popular, many buyers decide they want to live year-round on a river, bay, creek or pond.  Whatever venue they choose, waterfront homes have a built-in natural asset that provides years of enjoyment and adds greatly to its resale value.

Buying or Selling Homes on Waterfront

While Clark County offers many 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 knows this market well.
