3 Reasons Why Seacrest Beach Homes for Sale are a Great Investment
If you are planning on buying a Seacrest Beach 30A luxury home for sale as a second property, primary residence, or an investment property, it is important to be aware of the advantages of living NEAR the beach versus living ON the beach before investing.
Many people are attracted by the idea of living in a 30A beachfront home. With easy access to the beach, the relaxing sound of the surf, exciting water activities all year long – it sounds like 30A beachfront living is heaven on earth. But is it really for everyone?
Owning and living in a 30A beachfront property has many ‘challenges’ such as:
1. Higher cost to purchase a beachfront properties. One of the major setbacks in buying a 30A beachfront property with lovely views of the gulf, is the cost. These 30A beachfront homes for sale cost more than Seacrest Beach homes for sale which are located inland and are just a few minutes away from the beach.
2. Higher cost of homeowner’s insurance. Since beachfront homes are located in flood and hurricane prone areas, these homes fetch higher insurance rates due to the risk of wind or flood damage.
3. Higher cost of maintenance. Homes located on the gulf need more maintenance due to the corrosive nature of the salt in the water. Extra maintenance is needed for eroded paint and pipes, as well as for wind proofing windows. You might need to hire an inspector to examine the home to determine the cost of maintenance before buying a 30A beachfront home for sale.
With the ‘challenges’ of owning and living in a 30A beachfront property, it might be a wiser choice to buy a home that is inland and not located directly on the water. The beach is still accessible and a just few minutes’ walk away. Seacrest Beach homes for sale would be the perfect choice for those who still want to enjoy the benefits of the beach without the ‘challenges’ of living in a 30A beachfront home.
