Waterfront Market Report 

 

With Spring's arrival, as more people get outside to enjoy the nice weather, buyers start thinking about living on the water. Waterfront properties have a built-in asset many buyers want. Waterfront properties offer a natural, meditative environment -- the sight and sound of moving water put us in a relaxed mode. Some want easy access to boating and active water sports while 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.

Love your photo, can hear the water as I write. Who better for buyers and sellers alike to contact other than you. This report makes that abundantly clear, you need someone who knows what they are doing and your experience shows.

Waterfront properties are very desirable but buyers need to know who they are working with and whether or not the person representing them is knowledgeable enough to know this niche. In my professional opinion, there is no one better than Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD. Plus, Debb is known all over the United States on ActiveRain for her impeccable reputation.
