Waterfront Property for sale in Columbia, South Carolina
Waterfront Property for sale in Columbia SC
Looking for waterfront property for sale in Columbia, South Carolina? You have several options to choose from if you are making a decision of where to buy waterfront property in Columbia. Columbia’s existence can be accredited to the rivers, streams and lakes that flow through downtown Columbia. You will likely be able to find land or homes for sale on the water, but these properties are usually above the median price range. So expect to pay a little more than you would for an interior property… or a “waterfront community” home. Values will typically increase with the amount of waterfrontage and the waterfront view that a property has. For instance, a houses for sale on Lake Murray with 400 feet of water frontage on “big water” will likely be more expensive than a similar lake home that has 50 feet of waterfrontage in the back of a cove with obstructed views. It’s not necessarily bad to be in a cove, but most waterfront homebuyers are looking for a lake view that is irreplaceable.
Have you done your property research?
Researching these properties can be difficult because the view and setting can’t be illustrated in a MLS listing or a property-listing sheet with only a few pictures. Even a video can’t really capture the sounds, scents, and views that you will notice when viewing a property “in person”. Look for property features that you want, like square footage, bedrooms and baths, then contact one of our agents to take or meet you at the property so that you can get a true feel for the area, home, and setting. This is our job, and we have tools and knowledge that you may not have to research the property, so don’t hesitate to contact us. In almost every case you will not have to pay us any additional money than you would if you were to call the agent that is representing the seller. Believe it or not, seller’s agents pay us to represent you and bring them to their property listing.
