ViewHomes™ of Clark County - Waterfront Market Report

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

One of the rewards of living in the Pacific Northwest is the predominance of amazing bodies of water - rivers, bays, lakes and creeks all enhance our connection to nature. Water has a natural, meditative effect on us -- the sight and sound of moving water puts us in a relaxed, reflective mode. Waterfront properties have a built-in asset that many buyers want.  Some want easy access to boating and active water sports. Others want a peaceful place for quiet reflection.

However, regulations designed to protection our watersheds restrict the development of designated shoreline properties with tight footprints, setbacks, and mitigation requirements. Even creeks are regulated in certain protected watersheds. This can cause frustration for anyone trying to build or expand a house along a natural waterway (previous structures are grandfathered in, but there are still limitations on what you can do to the property.)

Regulation, market demand, and a limited inventory all add up to create a specialized market. Whether you are looking for, or want to sell, waterfront property, you should work with a broker who has experience in this specialized market and knows how to achieve that perfect outcome for you.

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - Clark County is so beautiful and it stands to reason that it should stay that way with regulated development. Thank you for this report; like everywhere else, the most expensive properties take a little longer to sell.

I have to say Debb that my visit to the Pacific Northwest taught me just how much water you have-everywhere I hiked-Crater Lake, Bend, all we found were extraordinary rivers and waterfalls!  Such natural beauty.
