Planning Your Florida Oceanfront / Waterfront Home

Planning Your Florida Oceanfront / Waterfront Home

Lot Selection – A waterfront, or oceanfront, lot has a breathtaking view that should be the focal point. The home needs to be designed to take full advantage of the view from as many rooms as possible.

Setbacks – The distance from the water to the home requirements is important when purchasing a lot for your dream home. Setbacks from the waterfront or oceanfront vary greatly either from city ordinances to state permitting requirements.

Soil & Topographical Conditions – Reports of the soil are important information when purchasing a lot. The soil conditions will dramatically affect the cost of building on your waterfront lot. Oceanfront lots are typically required to have pilings under the foundation.

Environmental Conditions – Some environmental issues such as wetlands, protected plant species, and protected animal species affect the ability to build on a lot.
