6 Benefits of Living Near Water

The idea of waterfront living is appealing to most people, and for good reason. Imagine getting into bed after a long day. The cool night air rolls off the water and the soothing sounds of a lake make you feel transported.  The stress of the day evaporates and you’re lulled to sleep.

A Healthy Outlook

In addition to relaxation, living near water provides more opportunities to improve your mindset.

Take a brisk walk on the shore, or invite friends over to spend the day on a boat.  There’s a wealth of activities to do, and more excuses to get outside.

1) Aesthetics

A waterfront view is one of the most desirable and sought-after sights. The colors, reflections, and contrast make it one of the most beautiful views imaginable. A room requires little in the way of interior decor if the view steals the spotlight.  

2) Activities

Living near water means that you’re just seconds away from many water activities. Have a day off? Enjoy sailing, boating, fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding, flyboarding and much more. This can also encourage a healthier lifestyle and save expenses you might otherwise spend going elsewhere for entertainment. Lake living means that you no longer have to seek out entertainment.  It’s right in your backyard!

3) Relaxation

Few sounds elicit such an immediate calming effect as that of water gently lapping a shore. There have been countless studies on the effects of water to overall wellness, and the one thing that’s proven is that water decreases stress.

4) Value

One of the benefits of living near water is the financial value. In practical terms, waterfront property is a great investment and enjoys stronger resale value than homes just a mile from the shore. Generally speaking, waterfront homes are worth almost almost double their inland counterparts.

5) Fresh Air

There’s something exhilarating about the smell of lake water on the breeze. If you’re cooped up in an office all week, you’re probably being exposed to a litany of germs and bacteria. Getting some fresh air makes you feel energizes, and boosts immunity.

6) The Destination Effect

People want to go where it’s warm, beautiful and fun.  Waterfront living provides something for everything.  As a result, you’ll have more opportunities to play host, enjoying the company of friends and family in the comfort of your own home.

The Appealing Benefits of Living Near Water

If you’ve ever lived in a city apartment or crowded cul de sac, then you know how dreary it can be when your living room view is the side of the neighbor’s house. This lack of privacy and feeling of claustrophobia is completely erased looking out onto the water.  It transforms your whole space and can improve your entire outlook.
