How to Choose a Waterfront Property
With any home purchase, it’s important to figure out exactly what you want and need from you home in order to make a wise decision. But with a highly desirable Napa waterfront home, you don’t want to make a wise decision, you want to make the right decision. Special considerations should be taken to ensure that your property will suit your lifestyle and allow you to enjoy the activities you love.
Consider the two L’s = Lifestyle and Location:
Although most people initially start a real estate search that focuses on “Waterfront”, the most important term in your search should be “Lifestyle”. Ask yourself these very important questions to narrow your focus on properties that will be best suited to your needs and desires:
How do I envision using my waterfront property?
What are your priorities when it comes to a waterfront lifestyle? Do you want to be able to grab a standup paddle-board of kayak in the garage or on your own dock and walk right to the water? Do you need a boat slip? Which is more important, water access or an unforgettable view? What types of recreation do you enjoy and can you easily enjoy them in this home? Do you want a quiet place on the river for reflecting and enjoying nature, or a spot on the river for jet skiing, boating and big parties?
How often will I be there?
Some properties are better suited for seasonal use than others. Buyers looking for a seasonal property typically prefer Marsh preserve view homes whereas year-round residents are more likely to choose Water view homes. Also consider how often you will have guests; nothing is more enticing to friends and families than visiting you in a beautiful waterfront property!
We’ve all heard the old adage that in real estate, there are only three things that matter: Location, Location, Location
When searching for the ideal waterfront property, make sure that you think about location in terms beyond the proximity to the water.
Ask yourself: Is the property in close proximity to the amenities that matter most to me?
How far away is the nearest marina or yacht club? If you have medical needs, be sure your property is convenient to a hospital.
If you travel often on business, limit your search to properties within reasonable driving distance to an airport like San Francisco or Oakland International Airports.
