Florida Waterfront Homes for Sale

Beautiful Daytona Beach, FL Waterfront Homes for Sale

Florida's warm and sunny climate attracts more than just tourists, retirees and baseball teams in the springtime. People from all walks of life come to the Sunshine State for its attractive weather, high job growth rate, lack of personal income tax and relatively low cost of living. All of these factors and more help to make Florida one of the nation’s fastest growing states. Hundreds of miles of scenic coastline, Disney and the natural beauty of the Everglades all help to make tourism Florida's leading industry.

Agriculture is also big business and the State is the number one citrus producer in the United States. Jacksonville, Miami and Tampa are the three largest cities.

Florida beaches, whether quiet and secluded or bustling with activity, are ranked among the best in the country for beauty, accessibility and facilities. Families, couples, and active singles enjoy year-round sunshine, soft sand, and clear Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean waters.

No other state and very few countries can boast such an abundance of high-quality beaches. The 825 miles of sandy coastline fronting the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico or the Straits of Florida are among Florida’s most valuable natural resources.

Florida’s beaches have attracted 14 million people to the state, 75% of which live within ten miles of the coast. Both tourists and residents come to the beaches to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of its natural beauty. Others visit the beaches and nearby waters to engage in boating, fishing, diving, and other recreation. Florida's beaches are an integral part of the state's economy, attracting tourists from around the world. Beach tourism generates about $15 billion a year to the state’s economy

Additionally, Florida is blessed with over 1,700 rivers, 40 of them major ones.  Within the 7,700 lakes is the 2nd largest freshwater lake in the United States, Lake Okeechobee, at 700 square miles

Florida ranks low in terms of the tax burden placed on residents. Based on income, property and other state and local tax collections, the Tax Foundation research organization ranks Florida among the lowest tax states -- only five states have a lower tax burden. Florida has no State Income tax.

Why Live in Florida?

  1. Warm Weather: With the exception of Hawaii, Florida is one of the warmest places in the United States in winter.
  2. No State Income Tax: There is no personal income tax in Florida, and don't forget to ask about the homestead tax exemptions.
  3. Theme Parks & Attractions: Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens, Sea World...they are all in Florida.
  4. Boating & Fishing:
Fishing season in Florida is all year long. Florida has its share of world record catches and more than its share of fish altogether. If you like to fish, saltwater or freshwater, this is the place.
  5. Sandy Beaches:
Florida has a 1,197 mile coastline with 2,276 miles of tidal shoreline and 663 miles of beaches.
  6. Vacation Lifestyle: Living in Florida is like being on vacation all year long. If you feel the urge to explore, you can easily visit the local destinations as well as hop on a cruise to the nearby Bahamas and all of the Caribbean.
  7. Excellent Healthcare: Those concerned about top-notch healthcare will find that since Florida is a major retirement area, some of the best medical centers in the nation are here, with some of the latest technology and treatment programs available.
  8. Housing Affordability: When the housing market bubble burst five years ago, Florida was one of the hardest hit states as a result of overbuilding and high unemployment. But things are improving in Florida, and quickly. The Florida housing market is recovering, and according to recent data, home prices are rising and the inventory of homes is declining. Still, the median single family home price is under $200,000.

Top floor condo with a magnificent westerly view of Charlotte Harbor.

Punta Gorda, Charlotte County, Florida


In perhaps the most desired building at Vivante, 8545 is on the top floor at the quiet end of the boulevard. You'll find 2,338 square feet of a three bedroom and three bathroom condo that could soon be yours. The seller has owned it since 2009 and until recently, always spent half the year in North Carolina. Once you’ve entered the unit directly from the elevator to your own foyer, you’ll immediately pass on to the great room - what an entrance! The views from the great room, lanai and principal bedroom are stunning – all you can see are mangroves, Charlotte Harbor and the westerly shore and, of course, the sky – watch the sun set with your favourite cocktail and simply relax. You will see that there are several areas of the condo that are being remediated after Hurricane Ian so when that's all completed, 8545 will be a blank canvas for you to decorate to any design and standard you care to apply. The condo is livable as it is, so, except a little inconvenience perhaps, there are no barriers to moving in at closing. While your guests will share the great room with you, they will also enjoy the privacy of their choice of two bedrooms, each with access to its own bathroom, set remotely and quietly away at the front of the building – they will enjoy the sun’s rise. There is a deeded parking (#11) on the ground floor and there is also has a storage cage (#15) in a separate and secured room. The beautiful gated community of Vivante, with all its amenities, is waiting for you. You’ll always have something to do at Vivante and in Punta Gorda. There are 2 geo-thermally heated pools, 6 Har-Tru tennis courts, a cabana, gas grills, two fire places and a superb clubhouse with full entertaining facilities. On the ground floor of the clubhouse, there are lounge, TV, card, billiards and craft rooms, a library and wifi media centre and management's office. On the upper floor, you'll find fitness facilities, a gymnasium, the spa and men's and women's locker rooms, each with sauna and steam rooms - the fitness room overlooks the pool and larger lake. Vivante is 3 miles from beautiful, historic Punta Gorda and Tamiami Trail, 7 from I75, a couple of hours from Naples and Sarasota and just three hours from the Mouse. Far enough from all that to be tranquil yet close enough for all the fun stuff to be quickly accessible.
