“Rather than answer what time of year is best for purchasing a waterfront home, I prefer answering the question, ‘When should a buyer write an offer on a waterfront home?’ Buyers need to decide if they want high, medium, low or no-bank waterfront. They must ask themselves; do I want blazing sunlight until 10:15 p.m., or intense sun at 5:30 a.m. and shade at 2:00 p.m.? Do I want access to the beach, or am I okay only having a water view? Do I want a mooring buoy? A dock? A sandy, rocky, or muddy beach? Once buyers know the answer to these questions —and many more—they are ready to buy at any time of the year!”
