Is beachfront best?
By DevSupport on October 18, 2012
The price of beachfront land need not always be prohibitive for buyers. Recent sales in the hotel zone and in Mismaloya show 1 bedrooms just over $100,000 USD for a well appointed furnished ocean view unit with views.
The drawback of beachfront is that most of the units have higher monthly maintenance fees in the complex due to additional charges for the concession of the federal zone beachfront access and due to the need to paint/seal/sand/varnish/waterproof and replace oxidized materials at a greater rate than inland property.
The views are straight out to the ocean and you might be lucky enough to see to north or south sides of the bay (or even both!).
Buyers tend to ask how safe views are and although I never like to say never, your best bet for ‘never’ having your view blocked is beachfront. However, the interiors of the unit, especially any mirrors, wood, paintwork and metal need frequent treatments and more frequent replacement as their life span is less given the salt breeze that does take its toll.
I’m pretty sure that the positives out weigh the negatives as you\’re lulled to sleep at night by the waves, have beautiful ocean view sunsets all year round and take morning strolls along the sand….
