Beach Erosion and Nourishment
Beaches vary and the choice of beach can be as important as your choice of a home. Several beaches in South Florida made the top 20 list for the state including Fort Lauderdale Beach, South Beach in Miami & Delray Beach to name a few. Things to consider include public access to the beach and whether the beach is “accreting”, (the natural process of beach growth) or prone to erosion. If the beach is eroding don’t despair. Many municipalities provide beach “nourishment” to replenish any erosion that naturally occurs. This is important information to know before purchasing. Below is a video showing the Miami Beach before and after nourishment.
The process of beach nourishments protects Miami Beach Oceanfront homes for sale, which are directly located on the sand.
Important Considerations when purchasing a beachfront home in South Florida
Now let’s take a look at the different elevations along the South Florida coastline. In the chart below it details the different elevations which range from 0 feet to 13 feet. This is an important consideration when purchasing any waterfront property. New guidelines have increased seawall height requirements from 3′ to 5′ in the coming years. Any elevation below 5′ could be susceptible to flooding. We strongly advise our buyers to understand elevations prior to a purchase decision. This chart below also details the average price per square foot for currently listed beachfront properties by neighborhood.
Some additional considerations when seeking a beachfront home include construction details such as: How many Auger Pilings were used to secure the structure? Is there a generator? Does the property have a propane tank? Are the windows impact and do they filter the UV rays? What type of roofing material was used? Was waterproof paint used? Does the home come equipped with electric shutters or panels? When you work with the David Siddons Group we will get you the answers to these questions and more.
Now relax and let us find you a beachfront paradise to call your own.
