5 Reasons Why 30A Luxury Homes Are the Perfect Investment

Many buyers are anxious, or hesitant, about buying Gulf front properties because of the high cost associated with maintenance. However, there are fabulous 30A luxury homes with gulf views, or even gulf front condos, where the maintenance is less costly. In fact if you purchase a gulf front condo (or any condo for that matter) the Condo Association is responsible for the maintenance.

Now could be the perfect time for you to own one of the stunning 30A luxury homes.

Here are 5 reasons why you should buy a 30A luxury home:

1. A beach home is more than just the structure.

Buying a home along 30A is more than just buying gulf front property…It’s a lifestyle. If you prefer to walk and bicycle everywhere (park your car when you arrive and don’t think about driving until you leave), then check out these Scenic 30A communities: Seacrest Beach Homes for Sale, Rosemary Beach homes for sale or Alys Beach Homes for sale.

Maybe you want to be a bit more ‘remote’? And ‘remote’ along Scenic 30A is a 5-10 minute drive to get to your destination! If so, then one of these communities might be of interest: Seagrove Beach, Grayton Beach or Blue Mountain Beach.

Properties with beach access are just as popular whether or not they are directly gulf front.

2. A struggling economy makes beach homes more affordable.

A struggling economy, in general, lowers the demand for luxury homes and beachfront property. This means that it is a great time for investors to buy gulf front property and 30A luxury homes for sale at a reduced price. Waterfront properties are priced lower than they were just a few years ago and will be the first to recover now that the economy is starting to improve.

Owning a 30A luxury home allows you the joy of having a vacation all year-round.

3. Beach homes make great rental properties.

You can rent out your home on a weekly, monthly, or seasonal basis, to help offset costs. Scenic 30A is a special place where people can take a vacation any time of the year. Let your luxury home earn for you all year long by having the guests pay for it!

4. Take a beach vacation any time.

Because you already own a home along 30A, you can save thousands of dollars when you take a vacation by simply visiting your luxury home. Having your own rental property can make vacations easier to plan and more affordable. You get to take a vacation, in one of the world’s most beautiful destinations, without having to worry about lodging expenses in a faraway place.

Buying a beachfront home along 30A allows you to live a distinct and unparalleled kind of lifestyle.
5.
Live in your very own home along 30A.

If you choose to, you can make your home your primary residence. In Florida, when you live in a property full-time, you can save money on property taxes by claiming a homestead exemption.  Living in your own beach home allows you to enjoy the pleasures and laid back lifestyle of living in the area!

These are only 5 of the many reasons why buying a 30A luxury home  makes a perfect choice for an investment property. You can check out www.30ALuxuryHomes.com to search for the best luxury homes currently for sale on the market.

Homeowners Insurance Tips For Your 30A Luxury Homes

Owning 30A luxury homes on the beach could be amazing, but at the same time, there are certain risks or natural hazards that a homeowner should prepare for to ensure their safety and maintenance of their property.

Obtaining homeowners insurance coverage is a smart decision, especially for those living on or near the waterfront. And if you are getting a mortgage, the lender will require it.

Prepare your 30A luxury home from the risks of natural hazards by getting a homeowners insurance.

Here are 4 tips to remember about getting homeowners insurance coverage for your 30A luxury home:

1. Your home along 30A is considered to be in an area called a “barrier island” by insurance carriers. Owners ofhomes along 30A should consider purchasing flood insurance, whether it is required by the lender or not.

2. Insurance experts have such a thing as a proper “hurricane insurance equation” which is:

Homeowners + Flood + Wind = Hurricane insurance

Ensure yours and your family's safety when you get a homeowners insurance for your 30A luxury home.

3. Know the primary flood zone classifications along 30A:

  • AE Zone: This is found in lower lying areas found near creeks and lakes. Lenders require insurance for homes along the AE zone
  • VE Zone: This covers beachfront homes or homes within close proximity to the beachfront. Lenders require flood insurance for homes in the VE zone.
  • X Zone: This area has only a 0.2% chance, or low to moderate risk of flooding. Insurance coverage is not required in the X zone, but it is still strongly recommended that homeowners purchase insurance coverage anyway.

4. Regardless of your flood zone, your homeowners insurance coverage is not truly comprehensive without flood insurance.

Having a homeowner’s insurance is an essential part of buying a home along 30A. If you have questions about purchasing insurance coverage for your home, contact an insurance carrier or ask your agent with years of experience in buying or selling 30A luxury homes for sale.
