Searching real estate for New Smyrna Beach houses- Tips and Tricks.
Searching New Smyrna Beach houses for sale can be easy with the right real estate professional on your side. Knowing the many different areas of the community and its surrounding cities is an important factor in searching for the house that’s right for you and your family in New Smyrna, Edgewater, Oak Hill, Samsula, Port Orange, or Daytona Beach. New Smyrna Beach houses for sale can vary significantly depending on what your lifestyle priority may be. All too often, the first feature that comes to mind in our little town is the beach. While the beach is most definitely what draws our traveling public to the area, the house of your dreams might be located on acreage where horses are permitted or next to pristine 18 hole golf course. Sometimes New Smyrna Beach real estate advertises so much of the beaches, it’s easy to overlook our beautiful intracoastal waterway that runs between the beachside island and the mainland. New Smyrna Beach houses for sale can be categorized as a boater’s paradise and a surfer’s paradise in a single location or as a golfer’s paradise and an artists’ retreat in another.
Oceanfront, Beachside, Riverfront, Inland…so many choices
If walking to the beach or surfing is your first priority in a home for sale, then beachside New Smyrna Beach is where your search should begin. It’s hard to believe that communities in just 10 miles of beach can be so incredibly different. Our newer residents of Florida sometimes worry about the risks associated with being closer to the ocean. Surprisingly enough, many areas designated to be a flood zone are not those that are closer to the ocean. In New Smyrna Beach especially, there is a higher risk of flooding according to FEMA in many areas of the mainland! Hurricane Ian exposed many new flood prone areas so mapping is likely to change in the near future.
If you’re curious about the flood zone of a property, just search the address. A brief description includes the four primary areas or beachside: North Beach, Central Beach, Saxon-Silver Sands, and Bethune Beach. Each area has a different atmosphere and amenities.
