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.

FULLY FURNISHED 2BR/2BA AT FOUR WINDS AT CRESCENT BEACH. Building faces east & west, so you get some ocean view and Intracoastal views! Four Winds Condos have been a favorite for people over the past 30 years! Built STRONG with concrete block between each unit so you can't hear next door. Grounds are always beautifully maintained, 2 pools - 1 is heated - both are located away from the wind, so you can enjoy the pools in the cooler months. When my own mom searched for a condo at the beach, I researched every single oceanfront complex along our coast, and I found Four Winds to be the best! I've seen kids and grandkids who grew up at Four Winds come back and and buy for their own family. You can bring your boat because you're close to intracoastal boat ramps! The best part is that Four Winds is located in the middle of Crescent Beach & 1.4 miles to 3 miles away from the beach access ramps for cars! Excellent vacation/investment property!

Thoroughly Updated 2 / 2 Condo in Vivante, Punta Gorda, Florida.

Punta Gorda, Charlotte County, Florida

When you walk into this condo, you might feel you’re entering another era – it is, throughout, a thoroughly modern home, but the aura is undeniably art deco. White, silver grey and black decorations and furniture and boldly designed door handles and lighting installs. You will find this unit is meticulously maintained. There is a great room from the kitchen to the lanai, a wonderful and spatial realm to enjoy your own private time or to share with guests. Ten feet high ceilings and eight feet tall doors throughout. There are two bedrooms on either side of the great room ensuring privacy; both have ensuite bathrooms and ample closet space. The whole unit, including the lanai, has silver grey, wood grained ceramic tiles which add style and continuity to confirm the sense of spaciousness. Facing East to Northeast, the view is firstly lawns and trees, then the canal, Punta Gorda and of course, the beautiful sunrises we all know and love in Florida. Enjoy a coffee with the early morning sun, or mix a cocktail at the bar (with wine cooler!) and watch Charlotte Harbor’s fireworks on 4th July and New Year’s Eve. There is one parking space under the building and one secure storage cage. You’ll always have something to do at Vivante and in Punta Gorda. There are two geo-thermally heated pools, six Har-Tru tennis courts (five are lit), a large cabana with gas grills close by, two outside fire places and a superb clubhouse with full entertaining facilities. On the ground floor of the clubhouse, there are lounge, games, billiards and craft rooms, a library with TV, wifi media centre and management's office. On the upper floor, you'll find the fitness room with state of the art exercise equipment, a gymnasium, the spa and men's and women's locker rooms, each with showers, sauna and steam rooms; the fitness room overlooks the pool and larger lake. 8823 was damaged during Hurricane Ian, but has already been repaired to a high standard. Vivante’s roofs are being replaced with aluminium roofing and all the windows are being tested and resealed. Vivante is 3 miles from historic Punta Gorda and the Tamiami Trail, 7 from I75, a couple of hours from Naples to the south and Sarasota to the north, and just three hours from the Mouse. Far enough from all that noise to be truly tranquil yet close enough for all the fun stuff to be quickly accessible. Punta Gorda also has its own airport, PGD, which directly serves many communities elsewhere in the US. This condo is delightful; Vivante is waiting for you.
