Waterfront Properties Market Report

This past winter's unusually harsh weather makes it hard to keep in mind that Spring will be here soon. And with Spring, as more people get outside to enjoy the nice weather, buyers start thinking about living on or near water.  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.

The Pacific Northwest has many amazing bodies of water - rivers, bays, lakes and creeks all enhance our connection to nature. But 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.

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”.

Hi Debb & Bernie - Homes on the water are special, and buyers and sellers need and deserve an agent that understands the market and its characteristics. No one fills that requirement better than you two for Clark County.

We both love water view homes too. We get a peek at a river during the winter months and love to watch the water sparkle. At least we get to hear the sounds of the river most of the year. D
