There are all kinds of waterfront homes. Oceans, rivers, ponds, streams, and lakes all provide different living experiences.

Some homes are directly on the water, while others are merely within a waterfront neighborhood.

There are surfing shacks, organic farms with ocean views, charming single-story Italian villas nestled in coves, unassuming beach cottages, riverside condominiums, and palatial contemporary compounds near the sea replete with tennis courts and helipads.

Although, there is nothing like living on the ocean, being sung to sleep by the sounds of the waves crashing just outside your bedroom window. Homes located on the ocean are highly coveted and appreciated for their luxurious charm. Plus, Florida offers some of the most affordable luxury beach front homes in the nation. And just wait until you see the sunsets that’ll provide a feast for your eyes every night. Pick your oceanfront property wisely and you’re likely to see a big return on investment. As the number of available oceanfront properties continues to decline, the value of oceanfront homes is continually on the rise.

However, you don’t have to spend millions of dollars on a beach house ….if you know where to look.

Typically, waterfront homes are worth twice as much as their landlocked counterparts. On Long Island’s South Shore and along  New York’s Long Island Sound, that means many millions. The famous playground for the rich and famous that’s just a train ride from the citadels of corporate power in New York City, the Hamptons features some of the most expensive properties in the country But in parts of Florida, which boasts some of the more affordable waterfront property in the nation, that could mean less than anticipated.

Of course, it may not stay that way for long. The saying among real estate agents, “They don’t make waterfront property anymore,” is no joke. Thanks to limited available waterfront property and escalating insurance costs, there’s simply less available, affordable property to go around.

So if winter is making you dream of ocean views and tropical temperatures, check out a few areas like Delray Beach, which calls itself “Florida’s Village by the sea,” was named the most fun small town in America by Rand McNally’s Best of the Road in 2012. Its Atlantic Dunes Park, Delray Municipal Beach, golf, tennis, and arts community lure around 1 million tourists each year, according to the Downtown Development Authority. With the newest and hottest in nightlife and restaurateurs attracted to Atlantic Ave. Delray has something for everyone in every budget.

Deerfield Beach’s “Blue Wave” waterfront got its name from the Clean Beach Council based on its clean water, good beach conditions, habitat conservation, safety services and public information. The Quiet Waters Park also offers opportunities for fishing, camping, skating and “cable skiing,” a popular local sport combining surfing, skiing, and wakeboarding.

Hobe Sound, Florida, located along the Atlantic Coast, has about 10 beaches to choose from, including Jensen Beach, Bathtub Reef Beach and Santa Lucea Beach. It attracts tourists and local nature-lovers with its Blowing Rocks wildlife preserve, Hobe Sound Nature Center and Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge.

Boynton Beach is unlike some of its neighbors, Boynton is a little bit more affordable, but the amenities of these areas are easily accessible, such as Boca Raton’s Florida Atlantic University’s Lifelong Learning Society and the cultural attractions of the Fort Lauderdale area. The city has plenty of public beaches and parks to enjoy and lots of 55+ active adult communities for those looking to easily establish a social life in the sunshine state.

Many social and financial experts worry that the baby boomers, better known for spending than for saving, face an economic train wreck in retirement.

But don’t count the boomers out yet. Real estate and a willingness to shift lifestyle gears may come to their rescue, allowing the boomers to retire on considerably less than the 70 percent to 80 percent of their pre-retirement incomes recommended by the mutual fund industry. By selling their homes that are paid for, or mostly paid for, in expensive urban areas Like New York and other areas in the Northern United States and moving to sometimes astonishingly less expensive parts of the country, many boomers may well be able to pay cash for a new home and avoid the dire financial straits that some economists predict for them.

A lot of Boomers will continue to flock to popular and traditional retirement havens like Florida. These are areas with many months of beautiful warm weather and an abundance of leisure activities such as Golf and Prime Fishing. Additionally, there are also facilities and activities geared to older adults, through promotions and advertising by homebuilders, whose construction efforts in recent years have been massive. It is this dynamic, for instance, that has helped many parts of Southeast Florida become the best choice for baby boomers looking to Relocate, Downsize, Retire, or purchase investment properties and vacation homes.

Millennials are moving into their home buying years, but with precious few starter houses available for sale, a growing number of these buyers are choosing to rent single-family homes. That is a big opportunity for investors overall.

Large-scale, institutional investors may have cleaned house during the foreclosure crisis, buying distressed homes in markets like Las Vegas, Phoenix and much of Florida, but the bulk of investors today are smaller scale. They are seeing more lucrative opportunities in less-obvious markets.

A just-released study actually shows a shake-up at the top of the list, Florida continues to have more markets on the list than any other state, even increasing in the first quarter compared to the end of 2016, due to single-family rent rises in the state.


The share of institutional investors, defined as those who purchase at least 10 properties in one calendar year, continues to shrink, now just 2.6 percent, compared to 3.4 percent a year ago, according to RealtyTrac. That has opened the door for smaller-scale investors to compete.

Tight supply and higher prices will push ever more potential buyers into rentals. Saving for a down payment is one of the biggest barriers to entry for first-time buyers, and finding a well-priced starter home ranks right up there, until the housing market regains a healthier balance between buyers and seller, rentals will clearly be a lucrative investment.

10-31 Exchange

Sometimes called a Starker exchange, the 1031 tax deferred exchange is a tool that real estate investors can use to trade properties without incurring taxes on the sale. By following the detailed rules of Section 1031 of the tax code, investors can avoid paying capital gains and depreciation recapture taxes when they sell their properties.


Time Periods

The IRS requires that you complete your 1031 exchange within a set time period, and if you miss the deadlines, your exchange will fail and you will have to pay taxes as if you did not exchange. The first deadline is that you must identify which properties you are considering buying within 45 days of your relinquished property’s closing. The second rule is that you must close on the replacement property and perfect the exchange no later than 180 days after the closing of the replacement property.

Property Types and the Meaning of “Like Kind”

For the 1031 exchange to be valid, you must exchange your property for another property of “like kind.” While like kind rules can be very complicated for personal property exchanges, the standard is relatively simple for investment property. Any piece of investment property in the United States is like-kind to any other investment property in the United States. In other words, you could sell a six-unit building in New York City and use the proceeds to buy a Cattle farm in Hobe Sound, Florida or a strip center in West Palm Beach Florida, as long as they are held as investments and not as personal residences.

1031 sec

Identification Rules

When you do a 1031 exchange, the IRS limits how many like-kind properties you can identify during the 45-day period. The most popular rule, the three-property rule, allows you to identify up to three properties of any value with the requirement that you buy at least one of them. The other two rules are the 200 percent rule, which lets you identify as many properties as you want as long as they do not exceed twice the value of the property you sold and the 95 percent rule which also lets you identify as many properties as you want, but requires you to buy at least 95 percent of their total value.

Tax Deferral

To be clear, the 1031 exchange doesn’t completely eliminate capital gains and depreciation recapture tax liability. When you do an exchange, your basis gets carried forward, meaning that you start out owning your new property with your old basis. If you ever sell a property that you 1031 exchanged into without doing an exchange, you would end up paying all of the capital gains and depreciation recapture taxes that you would have paid along the way. You have one way to avoid this unpleasant consequence, though. All that you have to do is to die. When you die, your heirs inherit your property with a stepped up basis equal to its fair market value on the date of your death. This erases any capital gains or recaptures tax liability.
