If a home is zoned comemercial, that means it is most likely on a busy thoroughfare.
Pros- It is probably close to public transportation.
If you have a home based business, you will not have a problem with zoning and your neighbors.
It will be easier for your customers to find you.
Cons- Your taxes may be higher.
Noise factor from busy street.
This particular home is near marinas and restaurants which is most likely why it is under that zoning.
It is by far one of the lowest priced waterfront homes in Bay Shore.
If you are setting your standards to perfect, you are never going to meet them and you are never going to purchase a home. Instead of looking at what is wrong with every home you see, try and focus on what you like about the home, and how you foresee your home adorned the way you want it. This is a buyer's market, where you have a lot of advantages if you are qualified to buy a home. It seems most buyers would prefer to wait until it is a sellers market again, where they will pay much more for a lot less.

Just my opinion, yours may differ. Looks like a nice property.
