Four Factors that affect the value of waterfront property:

1. The view of the water

This can be one of the biggest factors affecting the price of a waterfront property. This includes the size of the body of water from lakes and ponds to streams and rivers. Size does matter!

Also important is the backdrop. Looking across to woods is more desirable than seeing your neighbors. 

2. The depth of the Water

Deeper and fast moving waters do come with dangers but are also considered more beautiful. Stagnant water in August can also present some challenges from smell to bugs and algae. Also, small man made lakes may offer the opportunity for paddle boars and canoes. 

3. The Location

Is this a secluded place, a subdivision amenity or in the heart of town. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder and convenience has its own value proposition.

4. A House on or near water

How a house is set is very important. Do you have a sunrise or sunset? Can you enjoy it from your porch or do you need to walk a short distance to actually enjoy it? Can you hear the water from the property? All of these elements are very important and can increase the value of a property.
