The term luxury conjures up ideas that your lifestyle and home will be free of worry. However there are many issues to consider when looking for a luxury home. No area is perfect, so you must choose what is right for your situation and take into consideration the perks but also the drawbacks to the areas you may be looking to build your own Shangri-La.
Oceanfront Properties – The ocean can contain some of the most breathtaking views. Coastal properties are highly sought after, and we can see why given that the ocean continues to move and bring beauty all over the world. But be leery that over time, the salt air can rapidly increase corrosion to your home. Regular maintenance and careful planning is necessary. The salt air can not only affect your home, but your vehicle as well.
Clifftop Properties – Another example of beautiful views when on a cliff that overlooks the ocean or valley of mountains. Be cognitive of the landscape area. Get a feel for the erosion factor and ask to find out the history of that area.
Woodlands and Remote areas – Often in remote areas of luxury homes, woodlands or water attract wildlife as well as people. Wildlife can be a great sight to behold, but be cautious especially if you have small children. In some areas, like Florida, water also means alligators. They’re quite common and not usually aggressive, but house buyers with small children or small pets must take account of it.
