Madeira Beach Florida – If you are looking at waterfront homes in Pinellas County you need to be working with a local Realtor that understands potential issues of buying a waterfront home. Today I wanted to share a video and  kick off our Guide to Buying Waterfront Homes in Pinellas County to help people looking to buy waterfront property here in Tampa Bay especially along our beaches from Clearwater Beach ato St Pete Beach.

Guide to Buying Waterfront Homes in Tampa Bay – Part 1 – Understanding Seawalls


We have great Tampa Bay beach neighborhoods for boaters here however many of the waterfront homes along our beach communities were built in the 1950’s and 1960’s and while seawalls may have a life of around 40 years you can still run across many original seawalls when you’re looking at waterfront homes for sale in Madeira Beach, Treasure Island, Redington Beach, Indian Rocks area and Clearwater Beach  / Island Estates area.

There are several ways to maintain or reinforce seawalls from patching, having rip rap, capping or replacing so you’ll want to understand your all your options and also understand what upcoming work is needed if you are looking at buying a waterfront home from Tarpon Springs to Tierra Verde we can help.

Part 2 of our guide with video covers –  Buying Pinellas County Waterfront homes – How Seawall Inspection Saved Buyer $10,000+  I discuss the importance of finding out the condition of a home’s existing seawall as well as the current costs for seawall  maintenance, repair or replacement when buying a Pinellas County home on the water. I also share how buy knowing the right questions to ask and the right experts to use we saved our clients over  $10,000 on buying a  Madeira Beach waterfront home this month but more importantly we helped them avoid serious impending structural damage since the seawall needed immediate attention unknown to the seller.  If you have questions about seawalls or buying waterfront homes in Pinellas County but them in the comments below or email me at Cyndee at
