Riverfront or Oceanfront Home vs. Condo Living

Looking for a dream home where you can enjoy a gorgeous sunset over the water right in your
backyard? Thinking you might like your own swimming pool within a sprawling lanai and your own
fishing pier situated on beautifully landscaped riverfront acreage? Maybe a dock with a boat lift and
direct access to the ocean is your priority. Or possibly you are in the market for something with a little
less maintenance required…a luxurious condominium.

Whatever your desires, waterfront living offers a relaxing environment that nurtures the soul. The
ocean is a place where you can boat, surf, Jet ski or enjoy the trendy shops and endless choice of
restaurants along the beach. Riverside living offers its own host of benefits. Imagine kayaking through
waters where Spanish moss is draped from century old oaks…a tranquil estuary of birds, fish and other

A condo is another great way to enjoy all of the amenities of living in one of Florida’s best beach towns,
but without all the hassles. Hate mowing the lawn or the hassle of dealing with a contractor when your
roof is leaking? That’s all in the past when you own a condo. With a condominium, there is no mowing
or landscaping because your condo association handles all that. In fact, the condo association will take
care of most of the maintenance, such as roof and other property repairs.
A condominium is also an inexpensive way to get luxury ocean view property, because purchasing a
condo is typically much cheaper than purchasing a house. Plus, you can enjoy a host of luxurious
amenities when you live in a condo. Many condos have pools, spas, a clubhouse for entertaining, a
fitness center, and sometimes even a restaurant on-site.
