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.
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.
