Waterfront is always special..Especially if it is TRUE waterfront...not just a rentention pond! I have a listing with 22 acres containing an 8 acre lake, springfed, stocked with bass...as my listing blurb says...Why own lakefront ....OWN THE WHOLE LAKE!
It's a buyer's market right now so it is a good time to buy. I agree with Brian - its free for you as a buyer to use a REALTOR, so why wouldn't you have a professional help represent you in the biggest financial decision you may ever make? Email me if you'd like some listings emailed to you near the Alafia, I work in that area.
All waterfront property in Florida is the last to drop in a bad market and the first to rebound. Buy Buy Buy but ...use a broker. As a buyer you don't pay a commission to your broker, the seller does. So you get a pro to work for you for free.
