Waterfront properties are marvelous and there is no doubt about it. However, just like any other property, there are few caveats that come with purchasing waterfront properties. Today, we discuss few things that you may want to consider before buying your next waterfront property:
• As per the Canadian Aquatic law, water bodies that surround your property are not considered to be private property. Moreover, the aquatic authority keeps changing the water barrier each year and it would be a good idea to hire a surveyor to access the perimeter before you make a purchase.
• Additionally, if you own a water vehicle such as sailboat or yacht, you will need to follow certain protocols before docking your water vehicle near your waterfront property.
• As a result of changing weather conditions near large water bodies, you will experience frequent storms. This uncertain weather conditions can influence how you choose the building materials and as well as the placement of your home.
• Purchasing a waterfront property is just like purchasing any other real estate. It is not the structure that determines the price, utility and resale value of your waterfront property but the location of the property.
• Before you bring in your sailboat or any other water vehicle to the waters near your waterfront property, it is important to measure the water depth near your property. This is has to be done before your even purchase the property.
