Buying at the Beach

Our team at Caroline on the Coast are experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects of the Northwest Florida Gulf Coast real estate market.
Caroline and Chip have years of transactions and experience in our market, bringing you a valuable connection to local insight and data that will be crucial in making an informed purchase. 

 There are many aspects to purchasing a home at the beach that varies greatly from a traditional transaction elsewhere.

  1. Structure: Many coastal homes must meet specific requirements regarding roofing, windows and more. Your agent will be able to identify listings that are good, sound investments.
  2. Flood Insurance: Depending on location, homes may require different levels of insurance based on what type of flood zone they fall into. While it is always best to be prepared, you can take comfort in knowing that our area is known to have over 300 days of sunshine a year!
  3. Access to the Beach: Are you an avid beachgoer? Do you plan to put your investment home onto a rental program? Either way, you’ll want to identify the beach accesses near your potential home to ensure you can get your toes in the sand as quick as possible!

Our team enjoys guiding both investors as well as new locals through the process of choosing their home along the Gulf Coast.
We are committed to fast, professional and courteous service, and expert knowledge of our market, to help you understand and feel at ease throughout the home buying process. 

We specialize in the Emerald Coast area real estate market and are prepared to work diligently for you.
