Many snow birds find condominium living the best solution for their needs as they lock the door and return north for the summer without a care in the world.
Purchasing a home or condominium on the beach is also a great investment, historically, beachfront properties are not affected by the market as much as other real estate. There is a finite number of homes, and therefore, a rare commodity. In addition, the amount of potential season rentals for a home on the beach can pay for your living expenses for the rest of the year. In Southwest Florida, there is a huge demand for beachfront seasonal rentals.
