Jacksonville Waterfront Homes For Sale
Waterfront living is the pinnacle of the Florida lifestyle, and Jacksonville offers many choices of waterfront homes. From the St Johns River to the Intracoastal to beach front living at the Atlantic Ocean, you have a wide variety of choices! Some of the most popular waterfront choices are here below. The waterfront homes for sale pages are updated daily with the newest waterfront home listings and properties currently on the market in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra.
Waterfront real estate is always in demand and often times sells for as much as 10 to 20 times more than surrounding "land locked" properties sell for. The main reason is due to demand of living on the water. Some areas of the country have different levels of demand for waterfront real estate, but in Florida demand is extremely high. Take into account that no additional waterfront is being created, and you have a finite amount of available property...thus the higher priced real estate.

Buying Waterfront Real Estate?
Shopping for waterfront homes is different than shopping for an inland home. Waterfront homes were typically built in earlier timeframes compared to their inland neighbors, and many have therefore gone through numerous updates or sometimes none at all. You also have added variables of potential flood insurance, elevations to avoid flooding, bulk head lifespan and maintenance, and usually a dock that will often have power and fresh water - all of which come into play when looking at making a legitimate and strong offer. During inspections, you'll need to inspect more items than an inland house, and you'll need THE professionals to inspect on your behalf. As your waterfront Realtor, we provide you with our top tier list of professional inspectors and contractors and will manage the entire inspection and repair request negotiations to insure you are receiving the right waterfront home at the right price.
Homes For Sale St Johns River Jacksonville FL
The St Johns River runs directly North thru our southern most locations and into downtown Jacksonville and then turns to empty into the ocean. The St Johns river is absolutely tidal which creates a brackish water for many miles down the river. The homes for sale on the St Johns River in Jacksonville FL will range from the $200's to well into the millions. If you are wanting to be more of a Southside location, you can find waterfront homes under $500k on the river, but it's slim pickings. Top locations like San Marco Waterfront, Ortega Waterfront, Mandarin waterfront, and Ponte Vedra waterfront you'll find more riverfront homes in the $1mm+ range. Living on the St Johns river in Jacksonville will give you easy access to fishing, water skiing, and you can cruise out to the jetties or take your boat off shore into the Atlantic.
Homes For Sale on Intracoastal Waterway Jacksonville FL
Our Intracoastal system runs from the Atlantic Beach area down through Ponte Vedra and into St Augustine. Great fishing in all the intracoastal and creeks exist year round and I've personally water ski'd the intracoastal year round. It's a great body of water for just cruising around, fishing, skiing, traveling up and down the coast, etc. Houses for sale on the Intracoastal Waterway in Jacksonville are available in quite the spread of pricing - largely dependent of the condition! We see some intracoastal homes selling for below $500k, but most are well above the $500k mark. We are seeing a large demand for these homes as the access to the ocean is just up the canal. Renovations are also happening up and down the intracoastal. Make sure you check out renovation opportunities in the Isle of Palms!
Deep Water Access Homes in Jacksonville
We receive quite a few inquiries on homes from both local and out of state customers who are looking for deep water access in Jacksonville or they are looking for a home on the St Johns river or intracoastal with deep water access. Some areas have slightly deeper access than others, but remember the St Johns river and intracoastal are both tidal so you will be dealing with low tides. The easiest way to shop for a deep water access home in Jacksonville is by price point and location. You tell us the price point and location, and we will help you find the best homes to choose from based on depth at low tide. How do we do this? - we go measure at low tide.
Investing in Waterfront Homes
Waterfront is in limited supply, which attracts savvy investors. Any time you have a limited supply of an in demand item, return on investment is often above normal real estate percentages. As most real estate fluctuates with the overall economy, waterfront does the same. Will your investment always go up in value? No. Will it go up in value? Yes! Throughout history, all real estate has gone up in value but the areas that are considered hot areas have enjoyed even higher appreciation.
Reselling waterfront homes
When you are ready to resell your home on the river or home on the intracoastal or ocean, you must take a full assessment of what your home is and what it is not. Many of your neighbors properties will vary greatly in level of features, renovations, style of home, etc, and all of these items must be taken into account. We highly recommend an appraisal when deciding to list your waterfront home for sale. As most of these homes are much much higher priced than their landlocked neighbors, having a certified appraisal will help to give a foundation for your home's value. We can recommend several as well as provide a free value consultation.
