News of Clark County: Waterfront Market Report

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

Waterfront Market Report

With Spring's arrival, more of us are getting outside to enjoy the nice weather. In this environment, buyers start thinking about living on or near water.  Some want easy access to boating and active water sports. Others just want a peaceful place for quiet reflection -water has a natural, meditative effect on us, especially being around moving water. 

The Pacific Northwest has many amazing bodies of water - rivers, bays, lakes and creeks all enhance our connection to nature. But regulations designed to protect our watersheds restrict the development of 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”.
