Tallahassee Waterfront Property Sells For 78 Percent Premium

Now that 2012 is 1/3rd of the way to completion, let's see how Tallahassee waterfront property is doing compared to homes not on the water.

Every so often we take a look at niche property types, as people who own "special homes" often want to know how specific features affect real estate values.

Tallahassee waterfront homes are definitely a breed of niche property types, and homes on the water typically sell for more money than homes that have no water feature.

Tallahassee Waterfront Property Sales

When we look at the behavioral change of homebuyers over the past few years, we see them moving to waterfront homes at a rate more than double what we saw during the boom of the housing market. In 2012, 7% of all sales have been for homes on the water, whereas each of the years 2002 through 2007 the rate was only 3%. I think we can attribute this to falling values and lower interest rates, allowing buyers to "buy more home."
