Florida is home to some amazing high rise condos and extravagant waterfront properties. These properties do not come cheap as Florida is home to some of the most expensive waterfront homes in the country. The real estate market in Florida is one of the most active in the country. Florida is home to the fourth most expensive zip code in the United States, Miami Beaches’ 33109. 2016 was a huge year for Florida home buyers with the state-wide transaction volume jumping to $78.9 billion. That is more than double the number recorded in 2011. Part of the reasoning for that was that international buyers turned away from the luxuries of New York. Consequently, these consumers turned to Florida where the dollar lasts longer, and where there’s no state income tax.
Slightly more modest prices in the luxury market do not mean the average buyer can afford it. Florida is known for having some of the most expensive waterfront homes in the country. For a single family, home prices range from the eight to nine-figure range. Be prepared to have your socks knocked off as we look at some of the most expensive waterfront homes in Florida. These luxury homes come with everything from yacht marinas to you name it.
